The pusillanimous shit weasel who six months ago bruised his mangina and claimed PTSD after firing an AR-15 has surpassed several levels of stupid in his latest column in the New York Daily News.
In an effort to power wash the sand out of his labial folds after Hillary Clinton’s loss last month, paint himself to be less of a coward than he actually is, and apparently advocate retaliation for what he obviously believes to be Russian meddling in our election system that caused Queen Pantsuit to lose the election, (because it couldn’t possibly be that she was the world’s shittiest candidate, and no amount of lipstick could pretty up that pig), KUNTzman has decided to be a badass from the safety of his keyboard, while sipping his venti latte in his New York pad, claiming that the murder of Russia’s Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov by a deranged, Islamist fuckbag was somehow justified.
As Vladimir Putin’s man in Turkey, Karlov was the public face of that murderous dictator’s war crimes around the globe and of oppression at home. Andrei Karlov is the human embodiment of policies that deployed bunker busters to kill babies, sent fighter planes on scorched earth bombing runs that destroyed a whole city, aided Syrian madman Bashar al-Assad in his campaign that has killed hundreds of thousands, and even ordered attacks on UN aid workers.
“Justice has been served,” KUNTzman claims.
Now, you know I have no love for Putin or for Russia. My personal opinion is that the Russians are waging asymmetric warfare on the West, and that their infringement on a sovereign nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, their fomenting of unrest in the former Soviet Republics, and their outright threats to a couple of Scandinavian nations should they decide it’s time to join the NATO alliance and to eastern European NATO members, as well as their possession of nuclear weapons, makes the Russians an existential threat to the West and to the United States. That’s in addition to their recent flirtations with fascism and outright oppression!
So, no… I’m not a Russia fan by any stretch.
That said, the mental acrobatics in which he engages to justify the murder of a diplomat in Turkey would make a Romanian gymnast give Gersh the finger!
First, he compares Putin to Hitler, immediately disqualifying himself from adult conversation.
After watching the death of Karlov, I could not help but remember the case of Ernst vom Rath, the Nazi ambassador to France, who was gunned down inside his consulate by a Jewish student in 1938.
Like Karlov, Rath was the public face of atrocity — in this case, Adolf Hitler’s genocide, anti-Semitism and coming global aggression.
This irresponsible hysteria is far out of the realm of sanity, and anyone sane should point at KUNTzman and laugh hysterically at his inability to voice a coherent thought outside of “DERP! DERP! HITLER!”
While I’m not thrilled with Russia’s support of Syrian dictator Assad, but I also understand their concerns, including historic relationships between the leaders, the importance of Russian arms sales to Syria, and the defense of Russia’s only port in the Med, as well as concerns about jihadist fighters making their way back to Russia.
Whether we like it or not, and whether we understand it or not, looking at it from the Russians’ point of view, they do have legitimate interests there.
And let’s not forget the wholesale murder of millions and millions of people by Hitler that’s not even a close comparison to Putin’s involvement in Syria!
Hitler was an ideologue, and frankly not altogether sane. Putin is an opportunist, a (by some accounts) kleptomaniac, and hungry for power. Putin isn’t driven by racism or by a hatred of certain religions. He wants to restore Russia to world power status, and he wants to be the head of that world power. The motivations are vastly different, but apparently KUNTzman’s tiny, shriveled up little brain isn’t even capable of comprehending that much.
And finally, Russia’s capabilities and intent vastly differ from Nazi Germany. Only to a quivering dick wrinkle like KUNTzman would the comparison be even remotely valid!
That said, KUNTzman’s sniveling manifesto is typical of the inadequate, feeble, pajama-boy metrosexual, pseudo male with an inferiority complex. Given his quaking distress at firing a varmint rifle, it’s only logical that he would be overjoyed at another man doing the dirty work he wishes he could do himself as he furiously masturbates into his pink Hello Kitty towel, dreaming of co-opting others – whether government or terrorist – to use force as his surrogate in order to implement his dirty little tyrannical schemes.
Worse yet, KUNTzman is stupid. Oh, dear lord, KUNTzman is stupid! So stupid, that my eyes roll to the back of my head, and I need help retrieving them, after reading the turds smeared on bathroom walls that pass for his writing! So stupid, that one has to wonder how he ties his shoelaces without throttling himself with them. Soooooo dumb…
Karlov’s job in Turkey was to ease tensions over Russia’s atrocities in Syria and its incursions inside Turkey itself — meaning his job was to enable and normalize Vladimir Putin. Given that role, he wasn’t a diplomat, but a soldier, and his death is the same whether it came on a battlefield outside Aleppo or in an art gallery in Ankara. His killer was also a soldier — not a terrorist, mind you, but a soldier. Terrorists kill innocent people with trucks in Christmas markets or with planes in skyscrapers. Soldiers kill their fellow soldiers.
Diplomats are very specifically noncombatants. Killing a person whose job it is to ensure that war DOESN’T happen between two countries is certainly not the same as killing an adversary in battle.
If it was, the murder of Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi, Libya in 2012 would have been perfectly justifiable. By KUNTzman’s logic, the murder of U.S. military personnel at recruitment centers in Chattanooga, TN last year by a swine-humping terrorist – personnel who were not engaged in combat – was OK. And the murders of John Gordon Mein, Cleo Noel, Rodger Davies, Francis Meloy, and Adolph Dubs were also just fine, because they were Soldiers in KUNTzman’s warped logic.
But just as KUNTzman knows fuckall about weapons, he also knows exactly jack and shit about combat and the rules of war. Turkey and Russia are not at war. The terrorist who shot Karlov was not a Soldier. He was a rogue Turkish cop, whose act of murder was celebrated by ISIS, and who gave the ISIS index finger signal, while shouting “Allahu Akbar” after shooting the ambassador. And he’s also not Syrian, as KUNTzman claims. He was born in Soke, a town in Turkey’s western Aydin province, so KUNTzman can’t possibly even justify this as combat, since the assailant wasn’t even from the country that’s supposedly engaged in a “war” with Russia. The assassination occurred at an art exhibit, ferfuckssake!
But it’s all the same to KUNTzman, because he has no comprehension of foreign or military policy!
In other words, he simply enjoys the murder of people he doesn’t like at the hands of others, because he’s too much of an oozing cunt to take the gun in his own hands and do it himself. He prefers others engage in violence on his behalf, and since in his empty mind, Russia = Hitler because somehow, according to the latest leftist narrative to excuse the C-Hag’s defeat, Putin caused Clinton to lose the election, it’s OK to murder a man whose entire mission was to ensure peaceful relations between Russia and Turkey.
KUNTzman doesn’t like war… unless it’s used to excuse acts of Muslim terrorist violence, in which case, “Justice has been served.”
As I was scanning my news feed this morning, I read that there was an active shooter incident at Ohio State University. Knowing that initial reports are nearly always wrong, I waited to find out what really happened on the sprawling campus. I was right to do so. The only person who was shot was a “Somali refugee” who plowed his vehicle into a crowd of Ohio State Students, and proceeded to go on a stabbing rampage, injuring at least nine before a police officer ventilated the bastard.
A police officer was on the scene within a minute and killed the assailant. “He engaged the suspect and eliminated the threat,” OSU Police Chief Craig Stone said.
The motive was unknown, but officials said the attack was clearly deliberate and may have been planned in advance.
“This was done on purpose,” Stone said.
While I and a number of news outlets that actually try to be responsible journalists waited for the details to come out, gun grabbing, sniveling fucktards such as Shannon Watts and Sheila Jackson Lee wasted no time calling for more gun control.
The school forbids guns on its campus, so the only recourse for students was to cower and barricade their classrooms.
But that didn’t stop these overly-excited, froth-flecked opponents of your rights from signalling their “concern” for the safety of all involved by screeching about our “lax” gun laws. I suppose if you call completely banning guns on campus “lax,” Shannon the Idiot Bloomberg Fellator Watts™ is right. Most of us with half a functioning brain, however, understand there’s nothing “lax” about a total ban on effective tools of self defense on campus.
It certainly didn’t stop the stabber, identified as 20-year-old Abdul Razak Ali Artan, from using a vehicle and a knife to attack his fellow students.
Note: Unlike other
news clickbait sites, I will refrain from calling this a terrorist attack quite yet until I get more facts, although it does bear the marks. After all, both ISIS and al-Qaida have publicly called for supporters to use vehicles as weapons. (See: Terrorist attack in Nice, France)
The initial reports about the dead slime bag have already been shown to have been wrong. Initially, he was identified as Ali Muhammad. Gateway Pundit immediately jumped in with a helpful photo of the alleged perp, gotten from some guy on Twitter, who ostensibly got the profile picture from Facebook. There are still Internet rumors out there that the car is registered to Muhammad, which would mean Artan either stole it, or Muhammad was an accomplice, which makes me think “terrorist plot” rather than “odd crime of passion” or “mental illness.”
We do know he was in the country legally and lived in Pakistan for a while before coming to the United States. We know he was a student at OSU, that he was in his third year there studying logistics management, and that he was pretty religious, per his own words.
And reports vary as to the type of blade used to slash the victims. One media outlet said Artan wielded a machete.
However, if you want to see world’s stupidest headline, I’ve got the screen cap from the link above, which has since been changed to reflect less stupid.
Are we seriously so desperate to blame guns, that we are willing to publish this fuckery?
To their credit, they did remove the idiot headline shortly after I captured it, but really… What the hell?
In any case, the investigation is ongoing, and updates are rolling in, as more and more details emerge.
How much longer before we hear rumblings of “He was traumatized by Trump’s election and thought he would be deported, prompting him to attack his fellow students”?
But for now, my thoughts are with the victims. Here’s hoping everyone recovers.
UPDATE: It’s interesting to note my prediction of Trump Derangement Syndrome above. I was close. The Daily Beast didn’t disappoint with its “poor, scared Muslim” narrative.
Artan described himself as a pious and scared Muslim in an interview with the Ohio State student newspaper in August.
“I wanted to pray in the open, but I was scared with everything going on in the media,” he told The Lantern after transfering from Columbus State Community College. “I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don’t know what they’re going to think, what’s going to happen. But, I don’t blame them. It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re going to just have it and it, it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable. I was kind of scared right now. But I just did it. I relied on God. I went over to the corner and just prayed.”
NBC News’s Pete Williams reported on-air that Artan made a Facebook post lamenting the treatment of Muslims worldwide just before the attack on Monday morning.
Poor, scared, sad, cupcake! He was scared to be a Muslim! It wasn’t his fault, you see. He was just all traumatized because RACISM!
Stand by. The Trump Derangement Syndrome may be coming as a defense yet!
UPDATE 2: Welp… it sure smells like terrorism.
Authorities are investigating an anti-U.S. rant posted on Facebook just minutes before the Ohio State University attack today that is believed to be linked to suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan, sources told ABC News.
Appearing three minutes before the beginning of the rampage that left 11 people injured, the post reads: “I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.”
The post also invokes the name Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaeda cleric, describing him as a “hero.” Al-Awlaki was killed in 2011 but his propaganda has been linked to several domestic terrorist attacks in the years after his death.
“If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace,” the post reads. “We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims.”
UPDATE: Death toll is at 50 now. Nauseating.
There was a mass shooting in Orlando, Florida early this morning/late last night. Details are a bit sketchy, because it’s still early, but the suspect walked into a gay nightclub and killed at least 20 people before being ventilated by law enforcement.
This is awful. Yet again an extremist psycho wielding a rifle and a handgun walked into an establishment filled with innocent victims and proceeded to murder them in cold blood!
My thoughts are with the victims and their families today.
How many of you thought “Oh! Some Christian anti-gay gun nut on a rampage”?
The FBI is looking at the perp’s Islamic extremist leanings.
When asked if the FBI suspected the gunman might have had inclinations toward militant Islam, including a possible sympathy with Islamic State, Ronald Hopper, an assistant FBI agent in charge, told reporters: “We do have suggestions that the individual may have leanings toward that particular ideology. But right now we can’t say definitively.”
Someone at Weasel Zippers also pulled voter data.
Omar Mateen was a registered Democrat.
The usual slew of suspects immediately started screaming about gun control. Actress Kirstie Alley immediately took to Twitter to advocate for a ban of “automatic assault rifles,” and then was gently corrected by myself and a number of others after admitting she “misspoke.”
But damn the NRA, and damn those Christian, gun-clinging Tea Party Republicans!
A few days after the deadly Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris, the Obama Administration vigorously defended its refugee screening process as “rigorous and safe.”
Nothing like this could happen here in the United States, right?
Until it did.
Not even a month later, two terrorists went on a shooting spree in San Bernardino. At the time (and now as well) we blogged that the attack was likely a case of premature detonation – that a bigger attack was planned, and that the two Islamists went on an early shooting spree after the male lost his temper at an office party.
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter if a bigger attack was planned, although if we were correct, we were lucky in that we avoided a lot more carnage, because Syed Farook couldn’t keep his temper in check. But what does matter is that the Administration’s assertions about its refugee screening process being “rigorous and safe” is apparently nonsense.
On December 16 – a couple of weeks after the San Bernardino attack – the Hill ran a column by a retired Department of Homeland Security explained how that same screening process failed the San Bernardino victims and failed America.
Philip Haney was a targeter at DHS who worked to identify terrorist networks and “connect the dots” between lesser known groups and individuals moving about and operating freely in the United States. He and his colleagues focused on individuals, mosques, Islamic Centers and schools involved in radicalization efforts – mosques such as the Dar Al Uloom Al Islamiyah Mosque in San Bernardino where Farook worshiped and was well-known to the congregation and leadership. And probably mosques such as the infamous Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center, located just a couple of miles from my house, where the thankfully droned into oblivion Anwar al-Awlaki spewed his poison.
Haney had these types of groups in his sights, including the Islamist group al-Huda.
Another focus of my investigation was the Pakistani women’s Islamist group al-Huda, which counted Farook’s wife, Tashfeen Malik, as a student. While the al-Huda International Welfare Foundation distanced themselves from the actions of their former pupil, Malik’s classmates told the Daily Mail she changed significantly while studying at al-Huda, gradually becoming “more serious and strict.” More ominously, the group’s presence in the U.S. and Canada is not without its other ties to ISIS and terrorism. In 2014, three recent former students at al-Huda’s affiliate school in Canada, aged 15 to 18, left their homes to join the Islamic State in Syria.
Haney says between Farook’s involvement with the Dar Al Uloom Al Islamiyah Mosque in San Bernardino and Malik’s involvement with al-Huda, the dots would have been connected, and additional scrutiny would have at the very least been indicated; maybe it would have led to a denial of Malik’s K-1 visa, or even gotten Farook placed on the No Fly list, perhaps in time to stop the attack, but that was not to be.
DHS shut down the investigation at the request of the Department of State and DHS’ own Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Division. They claimed that since the Islamist groups in question were not Specially Designated Terrorist Organizations (SDTOs) tracking individuals related to these groups was a violation of the travelers’ civil liberties.
Islamist groups, who need to be thoroughly investigated before being placed on the list, were barred from investigation because they’re not on the list. Well, that makes all the sense in the world.
Do you feel safe yet?
Worse yet, DHS went back and deleted all the records of Haney’s investigation, and after the latter brought his concern to the Inspector General, as well as several members of Congress, he was subjected to adverse actions and investigations, even though his work was exemplary, as detailed in this letter of commendation he received in June 2012. Thankfully, none of retaliatory investigations found any wrongdoing, and Haney was allowed to honorably retire from government service.
But the story doesn’t end there. Or rather, it doesn’t start there.
Remember the Crotch Bomber? Right before the unhinged jihadist tried to blow up a plane with an explosive packed in his panties, but instead set his own genitals on fire prior to being captured, DHS went on a record and research scrubbing spree.
Just before that Christmas Day attack, in early November 2009, I was ordered by my superiors at the Department of Homeland Security to delete or modify several hundred records of individuals tied to designated Islamist terror groups like Hamas from the important federal database, the Treasury Enforcement Communications System (TECS). These types of records are the basis for any ability to “connect dots.” Every day, DHS Customs and Border Protection officers watch entering and exiting many individuals associated with known terrorist affiliations, then look for patterns. Enforcing a political scrubbing of records of Muslims greatly affected our ability to do that. Even worse, going forward, my colleagues and I were prohibited from entering pertinent information into the database.
A few weeks later, in my office at the Port of Atlanta, the television hummed with the inevitable Congressional hearings that follow any terrorist attack. While members of Congress grilled Obama administration officials, demanding why their subordinates were still failing to understand the intelligence they had gathered, I was being forced to delete and scrub the records. And I was well aware that, as a result, it was going to be vastly more difficult to “connect the dots” in the future—especially before an attack occurs.
Who knows how many attacks could have been prevented had the DHS been allowed to continue its work?
No one does, because political considerations apparently trump national security in our country.
Look, there’s a very fine line between invasion of privacy and infringements on individual rights. The U.S. national security apparatus and the dedicated, committed people who work in our intelligence community and law enforcement walk that line carefully and diligently every day. An untold amount of work is done by the inter-agency before any individual or entity is sanctioned as a terrorist, or gets placed on the Specially Designated Nationals list. Legal review, leadership review, coordination with other agencies in the government. Placing an individual or entity on the SDN list is no joke, unlike some… other lists we’ve seen.
Intelligence professionals have to go through massive amounts of training. They have to learn how to safeguard personal information, whom they are allowed to collect on, what to report and how to report violations, and other agency-specific training to ensure that the rights of the people are balanced with the need to protect our nation. Their analyses are constantly challenged. Did you consider alternatives? Was your assessment based on a variety of corroborative sources? Were these sources credible? Given the fiasco that ensued after the now infamous Iraq WMD National Intelligence Estimate was published in 2002, and the subsequent Iraq invasion, it is no surprise that the Intelligence Community is much more cautious about its tradecraft.
This is all necessary, there’s no doubt. The rights of the people have to be protected.
But at the same time, ordering law enforcement and the intelligence community to scrub years of investigative research into violent extremists with obvious links to savage jihadists whose goal is to launch attacks against the United States, because they might somehow disturb a political narrative or result in some nebulous alleged “violations” of someone’s rights, is a dangerous policy. Fact is that researching a mosque’s, a group’s, or an individual’s links to terrorist organizations violates no one’s rights. If law enforcement is not allowed to do said research, or if said research is nixed due to political considerations, this nation is in danger.
After the September 11, 2001 attacks, a rigorous review by the 9-11 commission revealed that lack of information sharing was partially responsible for our failure to prevent the attacks, as was not watchlisting future hijackers and not trailing them after they traveled to Bangkok, and not informing the FBI about one future hijacker’s U.S. visa.
But that’s not all the report revealed. The commission’s findings also said we did not discover fraudulent statements made on visa applications and failed to detect fake passports.
The work Haney and his colleagues were doing would likely have been helpful in identifying terrorist links, and if shared with other agencies, would have probably helped prevent future attacks. But instead DHS was ordered by the Administration to toss out its research. It will not be shared with anyone, and that could result in disaster.
Apparently, this administration has learned nothing.
Do you feel safe yet?
