Image Control

Posted in Politics, Society on September 15th, 2014

I can understand the Liberals’ and Progressives’ panic over “Militarized Police.” As these Leftists have always been against the police and are equally always more attached to image than substance, their doomsaying and strident complaints about law enforcement being well-equipped to handle rioting, looting, gangs, and other serious threat is consistent with the Liberals’ and Progressives’ normal behavior.

What I have a harder time understanding is that Americans seems to be exhibiting the same reactions to well-armed and well-armored police units as the Liberals and Progressives are. This strikes me as odd because, much like the Liberals’ and Progressives’ gun control agenda, this is issue all about image control and nothing about substance. Normally Americans are better than that.

“Assault Weapon” and “Militarized Police” Are the Same Fiction

The terms “Assault Weapon” and “Militarized Police” are the same sort of fiction and manufactured concern. In both cases it is a phobia based upon something looking scary or dangerous without regard to whether it is more so or less than other exemplars of its kind. Also, both fears are predicated upon the delusion that having certain equipment causes one to behave in certain manners.

I really thought that Americans were better than that.

That was Then, This is Now

The simple truth of the matter, despite all the hype created and promulgated to the contrary, is that local and state law enforcement departments are less heavily armed than they were in past decades and that there are far, far, far fewer casualties during riots and (un)civil protests than there were in days gone by.

The “Non-Militarized Police” Of The Past

Sure, modern police tactical and riot response units look “scary” but their actual armaments are far less “militarized” than their predecessors’ were. From the 1920s through the early 1970s it was common for local and state law enforcement departments to have at their disposal Thompson submachine guns.

So, in America’s past our police forces were armed with fully automatic weapons, whereas now they armed with semi-automatic weapons. What they have now that they didn’t have in the past are: tactically practical uniforms, top flight body armor, and trained, specialized units to respond to more intense levels of threat. That is what “militarization” actually is – increasing the survivability of police officers in more intense and dangerous threat situations.

This may be a large part why there are far fewer fatalities resulting from riots, (un)civil protests, and any of the variations of gang-related police operations now than there were in the past.

As I said, I can understand the Liberals’ and Progressives’ panic over “Militarized Police” but I cannot understand why that same sentiment is so prevalent among Americans.

Do You See The Problem?

Muslim Insanity Problem
Do You See The Problem?

Despite the foolish apologetics of the Dhimmi Liberals and Progressives who side with Muslims against the Civilized World for two equally vile reasons, this is the truth. What is considered violently, dangerously, and criminally insane in the Civilized World is consider normal, right, and proper in the Muslim World.

Why Liberals and Progressives Side with Islam

  1. Muslims aren’t considered White and Liberals and Progressives believe that “Not White Must Be Right;”
  2. Muslims are considered to be Eastern and Liberals and Progressives adhere to the paradigm of “The Rest Against The West.”

Having seen the problem, we of the Civilized World must work towards a solution. Two pathways for solving the Muslim problem exist, which can be enacted in parallel. We can quarantine them so as to limit the damage they can cause to Mankind, and/or we can work against the more evil and dangerous Muslims while encouraging and fostering the good ones.

These same tactics should, out of necessity, also be used against Islam’s Liberal and Progressive enablers and supporters within the Civilized World.

Be A Victim Or A Racist

Sketchfactor LogoAllison McGuire and Daniel Herrington, two young, White entrepreneurs, co-founded  SketchFactor, which is an iTunes app for locating and avoiding “sketchy” or dangerous areas.

It uses a combination of publicly available data, e.g., crime statistics, and crowd sourcing to tag or flag areas according to various metrics for “sketchiness.”

SketchFactor, like all previous apps for location-based public safety was instantly decried as racist by both Liberals and Progressives and their minority tenants.

Essentially, according to Liberals and Progressives, if you try to actively try to avoid “sketchy” areas of a city – the first and most important step in any self-defense regimen – and you’re White, you’re a racist. Be a potential victim or be a racist; those are the only two choices allowed to you by America’s domestic enemies.
