Oklahoma Murderer: “Sharia Law Is Coming”


I hate to use the same image twice, but this cartoon panel by artist “Fukitor” perfectly captures the Jihadi mindset.

The story surrounding Alton Alexander Nolen, the homegrown Jihadi who beheaded one coworker and stabbed another yesterday in Oklahoma, continues to evolve.

We learn that the owner of Vaughn Foods, who also worked as a reserve deputy, had the presence of mind to don body armor and deploy his personally-owned rifle, which he used to shoot Nolen multiple times, halting the brutal attack.

The defender is said to be white, while Nolen is black. Amazingly, Al Sharpton has not rushed to Vaughn Foods with a rent-a-mob. Yet.

Police vaguely describe a “semiautomatic” or “assault rifle” used by the defender in his duties as a reservist. Both officials and media are being very, very careful not to use the phrase, “AR15″ – although it is unlikely that anyone serving as a reserve deputy would use anything other than an AR15.

One or two sources online claim the defender was armed with a Bushmaster AR15 – ironically, the same weapon used in the Sandy Hook massacre. If this is true, expect never to have this confirmed by the mainstream media, since this would support what we’ve been saying all along: that guns are inanimate tools that can be used for either good or evil, depending on the user. Media would have us believe that guns – especially “assault weapons” – are inherently evil things.

That Nolen survived multiple gunshot wounds from an AR15 is vexing. However, it appears that Nolen was shot in the very act of stabbing his second female victim. This implies close proximity between victim and aggressor, perhaps leaving only peripheral areas – arms, legs, etc – for bullet placement while posing minimal risk to the victim.

News reports are so far not providing a blow-by-blow account of the encounter, or a list of gunshot wounds/locations righteously administered to Nolen.

Also, ball 5.56 ammunition at point-blank range is not a terribly effective stopper. The (typically) 55 or 62-grain bullets tend to zing through the body of the target without tumbling or expanding, leaving minimal damage in their wake.

Or, as one old salt once told me, “.22 caliber hole going in, .22 caliber hole going out”.

The most amazing aspect of this story is that Nolen, who took the name “Jah’Keem Yisrael” after converting to Islam, had an online footprint that authorities should have keyed on. On his Facebook page, he boasts that “Sharia law is coming” to “Amerika”. Photos posted by Nolen glorify Jihadi terrorists in the Middle East, and celebrate the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. It is clear Nolen idolized the likes of Osama bin Laden. One photo disturbingly shows a man decapitated by ISIS maniacs in Syria.

There is an awful lot of anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-white rhetoric on Nolen’s Facebook page. This verbiage certainly meets the criteria for “hate speech”.

While composing this story, I read that the FBI has discovered links between Nolen and al Qaeda terror mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, and also the mosque used by the Boston Bombing Tsarnaev Brothers.

The attack continues to be described far and wide as “workplace violence” rather than as “terrorism”.

Yet, the FBI and other Federal authorities appear dumbfounded, caught entirely unawares by this lunatic’s often violent ramblings. It is becoming clear that Nolen was on no one’s radar in Washington.

The story would be different had Nolen been a Tea Party member, a gun rights advocate, a Ron Paul supporter, a critic of the Obama regime, or an otherwise outspoken conservative.

Had Nolen purchased a case or two of either MREs or ammunition, he would have been at a much higher risk of having his name on a watch list.

Instead, his disjointed gibbering about the glories of Jihad earned him exactly zero attention from federal authorities.

What a joke.


A Beating In Philly

In Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, prehumans evolved by learning to bash their fellows in the head with blunt objects. Today's posthumans have devolved back to that exact point on the evolutionary scale.

In Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, prehumans evolved by learning to bash their fellows in the head with blunt objects. Today’s posthumans have devolved back to that exact point on the evolutionary scale. The good news is that, by and large, they’re stymied by fire (power).

Say you’re walking down the street in broad daylight with your best girl, when suddenly a mob of black women runs up, smashes your girlfriend in the face with a brick, and attempts a strongarm robbery of you. What should you do?

If you’re in a Blue state like Pennsylvania, chances are you’ll merely sag to the ground and weep aloud as your attackers flee on a transit bus.

That’s exactly what happened in Philadelphia on March 6th. Temple University student Karly O’Toole, the young woman who was hit in the face with a brick, reportedly suffered severe injuries. Her beau, who was presumably unarmed, was apparently in no position to fight back.

Of course, had he been armed, and had he fought back, it would have been Trayvon Martin all over again. At least Ms. O’Toole would have been spared the agony of the attack, and of reconstructive facial surgery.

Police in Philly released a surveillance tape showing the suspects, and were asking for the public’s help in identifying the attackers:

Apparently, this publicity paid off. At about 2:20 pm today police announced the arrests of five “juveniles” in connection with the attack. That’s “juveniles”, as in “slap-on-the-wrist-by-the-courts”.

There are many obvious lessons to be learned here about situational awareness, avoidance of dangerous areas, the perils of living in Blue states, and the wisdom of carrying concealed. I ought not have to spell them out for my regular readers.

Mutant In Florida Arrested For Raping Pit Bull; Government Thinks We Ought Not Have Guns


If this isn’t an argument in favor of private ownership of firearms, I don’t know what is –

Police in Tampa, Florida today arrested 57-year-old Bernard Marsonek after his neighbors reported that Marsonek was having sex with a pit bull. The victim animal and seven other “large pit bulls” on Marsonek’s property were taken into protective custody by animal services.

Mutant humans having sex with canines, often forcibly, seems to be a growing trend in these not-so-United States. Every couple of days, we see stories like this. It should be obvious that anyone so depraved as to sexually accost an animal is capable of just about any kind of atrocity imaginable.

These creatures walk among us, posing a constant threat. Yet, entities like Marsonek, when caught, will likely just pay a fine, and maybe serve – at most – a few months in jail. Then they’re back on the street, peering longingly from behind the blinds of their windows at our pets or children.

Liberals say nobody needs a gun to protect themselves. I beg to differ.

2 Arrested For Armed Robbery Of Pregnant Woman In Labor


A story in the news yesterday is indicative of how our society is inundated with monsters.

In Annapolis, Maryland two thugs – Devery Kelley, 24, of Annapolis and Cornell Robinson, 44, of Washington, D.C. (pictured above)  – are being held pending formal charges after they robbed a pregnant woman at gunpoint. The woman was going into labor prior to the robbery and was transported by responding authorities to Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Keep in mind that mutants like this, assuming they serve any time at all, will be back out on the streets in a couple of years. They’ll be even worse, even more dangerous by then. Probably they’re sitting in their cell right now thinking, Shoulda shot da bitch, lef’ no witness ta testify in court. Next time I shoot da bitch.

Rehabilitation is a progressive myth. Some people are just plain evil, and no amount of coddling, group sessions, or therapy can fix that. Religion can’t fix it either. Our prisons are filled with convicts who’ve suddenly “found Jesus”, walking into their parole board interviews with a Bible tucked underneath their arm, insisting they’ve seen the light and, henceforth, only want to serve the Lord.

Then they go back into society – our society – and enthusiastically resume their innate viciousness.

What a joke.

An even bigger joke is that progressive political leaders, along with their accomplices in the media and academia – are antithetical to the idea of Americans owning and carrying firearms for self-protection. Perhaps they don’t understand the danger the growing permanent underclass puts us in. Then again, Eric Holder’s Justice Department is seeking to reinstate the right to vote for folks like Messrs Kelley and Robinson. Where we see orcs, our current government sees constituents.

Keeping these animals locked up for the rest of their lives is not possible. There are too many of them, and not nearly enough prisons. The cost of sequestering these mutants away from decent society would bankrupt the country.

Or should we liberally apply the death penalty? Having seen the workings of our court system, having spent almost three decades in the belly of that particular beast, I can no longer support the death penalty. In that three-ring circus that is the American courthouse, innocent parties are sometimes convicted. I do not trust our deeply flawed justice system to render a correct verdict 100% of the time … or even 70% of the time.

An ideal solution would be deportation.  A couple of centuries ago, the British sent their criminals to Australia; there, convicts had to put substantial effort into working to survive. And look at Australia today. It has grown from those beginnings into a first-rate nation.

But if we were to deport dangerous criminals today, where would we send them? Australia is taken, Antarctica is far too cold, and the Moon has not enough air.

The only remaining solution is for law-abiding citizens to have the ability to defend themselves from criminal attack with firearms. This has one of two outcomes: (1) it deters criminals by placing them at risk of being shot; or (2) it results in criminals being rendered dead at the exact moment they stage their evil depredations.

“But Uncle Dave,” you say, “that would take society back to the days of the Wild West.”

So? The “Wild West” wasn’t actually very wild. Crime rates were quite low, and most people went about their business in peace, despite the six-shooter strapped to their leg.

Nothing encourages right behavior like the threat, or actual placement, of a bullet in the guts. The sooner we can elect leaders who’ll understand this simple truth, who’ll stop playing pat-a-cake with pillagers and leave our gun ownership the hell alone, the sooner we can start working on “a polite society” in earnest.

“Florida Face-Eater” Plague Continues


Yet another “Florida face-eater” has run amok, this time in Delray Beach. A muscular, 6’3″, 250-lb lunatic was shot by police after he attempted to eat the face off of an 18-year-old man, who defended himself with a box cutter.

Police believe the madman was “obviously on some kind of narcotics to act like this.”

According to a news report:

“The people that he assaulted, starting with the retired NYPD guy, the people that he chased and then the 18-year-old, said this guy had like super human strength,” the sheriff said. “But he’s a big guy to start with. He’s not fat, he looks like an NFL linebacker. And he basically was terrorizing people all up and down this street.”

Deputies arrived and tried to calm the man down. They used a stun gun, but the man kept going.

Hollywood, for all its flaws, has at least educated Americans on how to deal with cannibalistic zombies:


Another Bath Salt User Tries Eating Victim


There has been yet another high-profile attack by a bath salt user, once again in Florida:

Sorace says around 2 a.m. Sunday, he heard a commotion and looked out a window, where he saw a man beating a dog.

“He thought the dog was the devil, and then the next thing he sees is me, illuminated — and all of a sudden, I’m the devil,” he said.

Davis allegedly kicked in Sorace’s front door, chased a woman in the house out a back door, then came back inside.

“I had a baseball bat and I hit him twice, and it didn’t do anything to stop him,” Sorace recalled Tuesday. “And he mauled me like a bear would attack somebody.”

Sorace suffered a broken nose, a concussion, and a lot of cuts and lacerations, allegedly from the attacker’s teeth.

Authorities have confirmed Davis was under the influence of “bath salts”, a synthetic drug that works like a methamphetamine/LSD cocktail.

Despite a decades-long “war on drugs”, our society is inundated with violent dope fiends drawn mostly from the growing permanent underclass. What’s more, every new drug wave brings substances that are more destructive to the human mind.

Sorace’s experience proves that things like tasers, or even baseball bats, are ineffective in coping with a drug-crazed attacker.

The only tool proven to fend off such maniacs is multiple, multiple center-of-mass hits from a large-caliber handgun or rifle. Or, if you’re either salty or lucky enough, a round right through the brainpan.


12 Signs Of Extreme Social Decay

Here’s a list of recent atrocities that’ll curl your hair. Perverted peeping-Toms. Child molesters. Dog-rapers. Roommate dismemberers. Priest-beaters. Devil worshippers …

Hearts in America are getting colder even faster than the weather is.  Sometimes it is hard to believe how twisted and deranged many Americans have become.  In order for a society to function efficiently, people need to be able to have a basic level of trust in one another.  Unfortunately, we are rapidly getting to the point in America where it is becoming very difficult to trust anyone that you do not know personally.  As you will see below, the United States is rapidly becoming a cesspool of liars, thieves, murderers, perverts and psychopaths.

The stories are as awful as anything I could imagine. Be sure to click the embedded links. As ghastly as the summaries are, the original stories are even more horrifying.

Did I mention that Adolph Hitler’s Mein Kampf is a bestselling Amazon Kindle book?

Or to put it another way: On Amazon, there are more than 100 versions ofMein Kampf for sale in every conceivable print and audio format, from antique hardbacks to brand-new paperbacks. Of those 100 iterations, just six are e-books—yet all six of them rank among the 10 best-selling versions overall. And those are just the ones people are paying for.

And Progressive chuckleheads wonder why so many of us are arming ourselves to the teeth.

‘Tis The Season For A Flash Mob



Two apocalyptic flash mob riots have captured headlines this weekend.

On December 26th, as many as 600 “teens” or “youths” brawled in Jacksonville, Florida:

The fight broke out in the Regal River City Marketplace theater parking lot around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, WJXT-TV, Jacksonville, reported.

About 600 people were in the lot, fighting and jumping on cars. Many did not have movie tickets, said Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lauri-Ellen Smith.

Smith said 62 officers were brought in to disperse the crowd, using pepper spray and other tactics.

The following day, about 400 “crazed teens” went on a rampage in a Brooklyn, New York shopping mall:

A wild flash mob stormed and trashed a Brooklyn mall, causing so much chaos that the shopping center was forced to close during post-Christmas sales, sources said Friday.

More than 400 crazed teens — who mistakenly thought the rapper Fabolous would perform — erupted into brawls all over Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin on Thursday at 5 p.m., sources said.

The troublemakers looted and ransacked several stores as panicked shoppers ran for the exits and clerks scrambled to pull down metal gates.

There is no video of that incident; You Tube briefly had a video of the ruckus, but soon took it down for policy violations.

However, the video for the Florida riot, and still images from the Brooklyn riot, show the mobs in either case were composed primarily of MUYs – Minority Urban Youth. That the rioters were ethnic minorities is reinforced by a look at the demographics of either city.

Of course, the media won’t mention racial or ethnic characteristics of the rioters, because that would be racist. True, not all MUYs – black or Hispanic – participate in this sort of thing. But when the media turns a blind eye toward incidents such as this, tries to minimize these incidents or at least mask the characteristics of those involved, it only encourages further misbehavior by members of the groups involved.

As the economy continues to crumble, and life in these not-so-United States becomes more and more strained, these sorts of episodes will only increase in frequency and intensity.

“Knockout Game” Is Symptomatic Of Greater Problem


Over the weekend, incidents of the “knockout game” or “polar bear hunting” – which has resulted in the deaths of four Americans – took center stage in the media. The “knockout game”, you’ll recall, is where Minority Urban Youth (MUYs), typically black, attempt to knock out random victims who are usually white –

– or, at least, this has been the pattern in the past. While the attackers in these cases continue to be predominately black, there has recently been a demographic broadening of victims: an Asian congresswoman, for example, or Jewish persons in New York. It seems that so long as victims were mostly white, the media ignored the story. Now that other minorities are being clocked for no reason, the media has collectively sounded the alarm.

Despite a few minorities being clobbered, victims of the knockout game continue to be overwhelmingly white. An argument could be made that the knockout game is merely a symptom of a growing anti-white bias in society. Of course, to assert this is to invite accusations of racism.

Yet I can see no more blatant a display of racism than Massachusetts College Of Art Professor Noel Ignatiev recently calling upon all white males to commit suicide:

“If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others!” Professor Noel Ignatiev, a tenured professor at Massachusetts College loudly proclaimed to his class last Monday, his final teaching day before retirement.

Ignatiev, it is worth noting, is ethnically Jewish and politically Marxist. According to his Wikipedia page:

Ignatiev, the son of Jewish immigrants from Russia, was raised in Philadelphia. He attended the University of Pennsylvania but dropped out after three years. Under the name Noel Ignatin, he joined the Communist Party USA in January 1958, but in August left (along with Theodore W. Allen and Harry Haywood) to help form the Provisional Organizing Committee to Reconstitute the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (POC). He was expelled from the POC in 1966. Later he became involved in the Students for a Democratic Society. When that organization fractured in the late 1960s, Ignatiev became part of the Third-worldist and Maoist New Communist Movement, forming the group Sojourner Truth Organization in 1970. Unlike other groups in the New Communist Movement, the STO and Ignatiev were also heavily influenced by the ideas of Trinidadian writer C.L.R. James. For 20 years, Ignatiev worked in a Chicago steel mill in the manufacturing of farming equipment and electrical components. A Marxist activist, he was involved in strikes by the mostly-African-American laborers of the steel mill. In 1984, he was laid off from the steel mill, approximately a year after an arrest on charges of attacking a strike-breaker’s car with a paint bomb.

American Communist strategy shows time and again that one of their principal tactics for bringing down Capitalism and America is agitating for black-on-white racial crimes. The growing trend of MUYs playing the knockout game is likely an outgrowth of such agitation.

How are whites responding to these attacks? Here is one victim displaying a textbook example of Stockholm Syndrome, calling for the poor, misunderstood “teens” to be “empowered”:

Ms. Connolly might be representative of urban, liberal whites. However, she is not representative of suburban and rural whites who are arming themselves. Moreover, suburban and rural whites aren’t just buying a small handgun to leave in the nightstand; this demographic appears focused on acquiring serious firepower, and the tactical skill to use it decisively – a development that is causing considerable consternation in far-left circles.

Instances of racially-motivated attacks against whites by blacks have been occurring in earnest since Obama – a man with close ties to Marxists – ascended to the Presidency in 2008. Documented examples of the knockout game first appeared in 2009, shortly after Obama took office, and have been steadily growing in number. There is no indication this trend is going to dissipate, and every indication it will grow worse with time.


Update: It turns out the above-linked story at Diversity Times was a satirical piece – though not an unfounded one …

Professor Ignatiev did not retire, and didn’t say those awful things in class. However, according to a fact-checking piece on The Blaze, Ignatiev’s fictional call for white men to commit suicide was based upon previous statements and actions:

Ignatiev, however, is no stranger to controversy.

In the past, the professor has reportedly argued for the abolishment of the white race in an issue of Harvard Magazine. At the time, the magazine’s editor said he was really calling for the abolishment of the “mind-set and attitude that automatically grants privileges to white people.”

In an interview with the New York Times, Ignatiev added that he wants to “abolish the privileges of the white skin.”

“The white race is like a private club based on one huge assumption: that all those who look white are, whatever their complaints or reservations, fundamentally loyal to the race,” he said. “We want to dissolve the club, to explode it.”

Ignatiev is also the co-editor of “Race Traitor,” a journal which says that ”treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.”

Sometimes, the best satire is that which sticks closest to the truth.

Guns Returned To Gonzaga Students


Good news at Gonzaga University. Sort of …

Gonzaga University students Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh, who used a 10mm Glock (good choice) to defend themselves against would-be strongarm robber John Taylor, have had their guns returned (with a few caveats):

Campus security confiscated McIntosh’s pistol and Fagan’s shotgun after the students reported that a man had come to their apartment door Oct. 24 demanding money and trying to force his way inside. The homeless man left when McIntosh displayed his pistol.

The students were placed on probation for violating the university’s weapons policy. Gonzaga students are not allowed to have guns in their homes if they live on campus or in a university-owned apartment.

Fagan and McIntosh were told they could retrieve their weapons as long they didn’t store it at any property owned or operated by the university.

In an effort to make suspect John Taylor seem pitiable rather than vile, Gonzaga University officials continue to feed the phrase “homeless man” to the media. Something like, “violent career felon”, “paroled criminal” or simply “thug” would be more accurate.

It is clear that the nomenklatura at Gonzaga, and throughout academia, are going to insist on maintaining gun-free killing zones at colleges across America. Those of us on the right side of the issue need to keep up the pressure on these bastards. Our kids deserve to be safe when away at college.
