Domestic Terrorists

I had a disturbing revelation over coffee. This is more common that I make it sound, because instant caffeine awakenings are summarily disturbing. Today was a bit different though.

I was contemplating the the fate of Gillian Gibbons, a British teacher who volunteered to educate kids in Sudan, a place rightly known as Mother Earth’s Rectum. Islamic fanatics are calling for Gibbons to be killed because of the false claim that she insulted the alleged prophet Mohammad (she let her students name a teddy bear after their messenger). In other words, killing an otherwise innocent — if not noble — person was justified because Mohamed was “dissed”, the current colloquial for “disrespected.”

Assassination over affronts is of course absurd, unless you are in either a radicalized jihadist hell hole, or a resident of an American inner city. Apparently some local subcultures have the same attitude as Islamic extremists. They merely apply the theory to themselves instead of the founders of religions.

Google the phrase “shot disrespect” and you will find many instances where thugs and thug wannabes blasted another human for the sin of badmouthing. This sickness has grown the the point of social incluturation, as evidenced by the lyrics of certain rap songs (does “rap” stand for “Really Awful Poetry”?). The social acceptance of homicide over trivial matters is now actively encouraged …

In the Sudan, in Oakland, in Tora Bora, in South Central, …

It is time to declare that inner city thuggery is domestic terrorism, and take the same actions as we have overseas. The surge worked in driving terrorists out of Iraqi hot spots, and making the place as livable as it can be. Big city Mayors should execute their own surges and send gangstas to the same destination.

  1. ‘The surge worked in driving terrorists out of Iraqi hot spots, and making the place as livable as it can be.’

    I think that’s very debatable. It has been estimated that there have been over one million violent Iraqi deaths as a result of the conflict. Only 4,000 have died from the US armed forces.

    It’s hard to imagine a million dead bodies, in a ‘livable as it can be’ country.

    ‘As of 2007 more Iraqis have lost their homes and become refugees than the population of any other country. Over 3.9 million people, close to 16% of the Iraqi population, have become uprooted.’
    Sounds very ‘livable’.

  2. ‘This sickness has grown the the point of social incluturation [sic] as evidenced by the lyrics of certain rap songs (does “rap” stand for “Really Awful Poetry”?). ‘

    I guess Bob Marley should have been jailed for singing ‘I shot the sheriff’.
