Well it has happened again Mr Editor and I intend to keep banging on about the American Disease until someone takes notice.
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and has feathers like a duck, it’s a duck. There seems to be some serious reluctance to characterise mass murder events in the USA as terrorist attacks.
Someone who kills large numbers of defenceless people at random is a terrorist. No matter what cause they use to justify their actions they are terrorists.
They don’t have to be ISIS, Al-Qa’ida, or any other type of Middle East fanatics, IRA operatives, or Farc gunmen.
Whether it be anti-gay, anti-country music, anti-school, or any other form of anti-ism, if it involves attempts to kill or maim people randomly it is terrorism.
If it’s revenge on a society that doesn’t give a person what that person believes is his/her rightful recognition it is terrorism. If it is an attempt to gain some kind of otherwise undeserved notoriety using terrorist methods it is terrorism.
If it shoots like a terrorist, plans and prepares like a terrorist, targets people like a terrorist, it’s a terrorist.
If it gives succour to a terrorist it’s a terrorist organisation and should be treated as such.
We are quick to condemn the Gadhafis the Saddams, the Iranians or the North Koreans as terrorist supporters. They supply arms and support to terrorist groups.
The National Rifle Association of America prevents the control of weapons which can only be used for terrorist purposes in a modern society (semi-automatic/ automatic assault rifles).
It is undoubtedly aiding and abetting the supply of the terrorist’s tools of trade in America. It behaves as a terrorist support organisation, it is a terrorist support organisation.
We can do nothing to heal American gun madness but we should take steps to protect ourselves from this disease. We should immediately:
- Declare the NRA of America a prohibited terrorist organisation.
- Prevent the executive and other spokesmen of the NRA entering our country in any type of official capacity.
- Require ASIO to keep NRA members entering Australia under surveillance.
- Immediately deport any NRA member attempting to progress NRA type agendas.
The time to take action is now, not when some radical citizen’s rights pressure group begins to agitate to make it legal for some nutcase to acquire machine guns for supposed self-protection.
Not when our kids lie broken and bleeding on our schoolroom floors or at some music, sporting or cultural event. It is coming to Australia, the elements are here now. Bikie Gang wars are a harbinger of the apocalypse.
