KILL US ALL, LET GOD SORT US OUT.

A lot of what the brethren have written about Boston has been deranged, but leave it to PJ Media/NewYork Post blowhard Michael Walsh to raise the bar. In this emission, his point is that with last week's lockdown the "pusillanimous toads... Gov. Deval Patrick and Mayor Mumbles Menino" had the city "cowering in fear" when they should have sent all Boston's able-bodied citizens out to shoot up the suspect and whatever got between him and them, or something equally butch.

There's plenty that's stupid and offensive in this, but connoisseurs will appreciate this bit about the 2004 Beslan school massacre, which Peters offers as a preferable model:
Note that, when the Russian military finally stormed the school, they were accompanied by armed residents of the village, desperate to save their children. In typical ham-handed Russian fashion, the former Soviets managed to kill almost as many people as they saved — but the point is they fought back.
Much better than last Friday's result, which was casualty-free as well as successsful, but without honor.

Sometimes I wonder if Walsh is just one of Col. Ralph Peters' secret identities.

  4. I'm all in favor of any policy that encourages gun fetishists to wander the street while the cops are in all-out-freakout mode. Bonus points if they fire off a few rounds every now and then, just to let folks know they're friendly. ;)

    As opposed to the Republican response of calling for the repeal of our civil rights after being attacked by two dumbasses, which is totally the opposite of cowering in fear.

    So how come none of these guys showed up in Boston to join the manhunt - there was plenty of time between the bomb going off and the shootout. Also the trigger-happy LAPD would have loved to have these guys running around with their AR-15s during the hunt for Christopher Dorner; better than shooting at delivery people who couldn't be bothered to shoot back. Actually I'm betting that if this happened in Walsh's neighborhood, he'd be demanding around the clock police protection while holed up in his bathroom.

    "The solution to their problems is not reform, and it is certainly not self-criticism. It is a return to the fundamentals of the faith -- and war against the unbelievers."



    It's like pre-hoc projection of the GOP circa 2013...

    They didn’t “shelter in place” (what an odious, bloodless phrase for enforced institutional cowardice), hiding behind locked doors; they got up, got their guns, and finally did something to rid themselves of the aliens in their midst. For they knew — with the example of the Moscow theater crisis fresh in everybody’s minds [NOTE: where the Russians managed to kill 40 of the hostage takers AND 130 of the hostages -- I mean could anyone plausibly imagine if something like that happened in the US? It'd be like Waco, while adding in the audience of the Boston Pops] — that there was no way this atrocity could end any way but bloodily. They wanted to get their licks in, and die like men instead of dumb beasts waiting for the slaughter.

    This is the stupidest thing ever written. It makes me almost blank with rage. Sure, there's a labor-intensive way to limit casualties, and try and bring in a potentially important source of intelligence alive, but wouldn't it be way fucking cool if a bunch of hillbillies just started shootin' first and asking questions later?

    UPDATE: If you’re interested in how we might react to a Beslan-style attack on one of our own schools, and how it might be taken down, that’s the subject of my first “Devlin” novel, Hostile Intent.

    I'm not, you fucking hillbilly, but lemme guess, the 6-year olds bum rush the fuckers?

    I'm sorry. I just cannot. The Beslan terrorist attack resulted in over 300 dead, 186 of them schoolchildren, and the live capture of one (1) out of the estimated 30 to 40 attackers. And this guy thinks it went better than the Watertown manhunt, because all that gore made him hard.

    That's so true. Something like that was rattling around in my head, but I couldn't put my finger on it. It's like engineering space flights based on what Anthony Clarke wrote.

    A bonus stomach-churning quote: So congratulations, Boston. In a state with some of the “toughest” gun laws in the country – and by “toughest” I mean unconstitutionally restrictive — a legislature completely controlled by Democrats and a congressional delegation that includes a grand total of zero Republicans, it was somehow not surprising that the Chechens chose one of the few places in the United States where a) the people could not and would not fight back and b) the media would find them sympathetic.

    None of that makes any fucking sense, of course. And makes me want to knee him in the balls.

    Meanwhile in gun-drenched downstate Illinois.... I feel a little dirty pointing out that 3 people died in the bombing, two by gun shots (one an officer, one a probable bomber and cop killer who was firing at cops) and 170 or so are alive after getting excellent medical care. 5 people, including two FUCKING CHILDREN were murdered by some fuck with a gun. Oh, and a six-year old girl was injured by the same fuck with a gun. The same body count, only 1 injured person living after the attack.

    The knee-jerk armchair commando comments to his post are all too predictable, but then so is Walsh (just like his doppel, Peters). But I did like this bit:
    I live in Boston but will be leaving as soon as possible after the cower-in-place fiasco. This is not the culture in which I want to raise my children.

    See, he's going to teach his kids how to be brave and courageous by leaving. The fun part is that the Boston "lockdown" was entirely voluntary. There was no state of emergency. He, and anyone else, could have been out struttin' and huntin' as much as they wanted.

    It wasn't a matter of dying like men instead of dumb beasts waiting for the slaughter, it was a matter of causing the massacre of school children in a dumb, berserker style frontal assault, or using every technique available to prevent the wholesale slaughter of little kids.


    I guess the only consolation in this whole fucked up melodrama is that, when the Tealiban decides to go all "WOLVERINES!!!" and shit, Michael Walsh is going to get a lot of traitorous 'baggers killed before they can do much harm.

    I think I might have found a new niche in parsing the first couple of sentences of a wingnut screed and maybe up to the first paragraph, for theses days, it seems all I can take.

    Enough with all the chest-thumping, mingled with manly tears, about the
    dramatic end of the Marathon bombers’ reign of terror in Boston last
    week. I don't even know wher to begin as my gob has been spackled all over the wall.

    From the press coverage, you’d think the entire city (which is actually rather small) rose up as one and smote two evil Chechens a stunning blow for truth, justice, liberty and the American Way. Nothing could be further from the truth. Again, nothing, though feeling a bit like my brains have been added to the spackling, yet if you follow the link you find the following regarding Putins response to Breslan























    The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, last night refused to order a
    public inquiry into how the Beslan school was captured by gunmen and
    then ended with such a high death toll, and told the Guardian that
    people who call for talks with Chechen leaders have no conscience.

    "Why
    don't you meet Osama bin Laden, invite him to Brussels or to the White
    House and engage in talks, ask him what he wants and give it to him so
    he leaves you in peace? Why don't you do that?" he said with searing
    sarcasm.

    "You find it possible to set some limitations in your
    dealings with these bastards, so why should we talk to people who are
    childkillers?

    "No one has a moral right to tell us to talk to childkillers," he added.

    "Correct
    me if I'm wrong, but Margaret Thatcher, whom I've met more than once
    said: 'A man who comes out into the street to kill other people must
    himself be killed'," he told the Guardian.

    That a Wingnut chooses to lionize an ex KGB member, Communist party member by invoking the brilliance of a "body count" is telling indeed.

    Humans, I fucking tell you, are very overrated members of the animal kingdom (at least the versions extant in the last 10 to 15 thousand years).

    And, you know, one of the almost-certainly-guilty has been killed, the other is in custody in very bad shape and almost certainly going to get a guilty verdict and, most likely, the death penalty. Which gives us saving innocents, with a remarkably low (though still tragic) death toll, and killing the guilty.

    I don't even particularly want to kill people, but it's obviously important to him.

    Given this, I did have a problem with the media using the term "lockdown," which is what happens during a prison riot, but that doesn't matter at this point.

    This is addressed on the Michael Walsh thread at NRO where everyone in Boston is simultaneously convicted of "cowering" and also "shirking" their duty to find this kid--including the boat owner who was apparently prevented by the police from finding the kid because he was sheltering in place. I guess you might argue that if one were certain of the ID of the kid and certain that no one could have been mistaken for him, and certain he were hiding in an insular community where everyone knows everyone else, that he might have been found sooner if everyone were just out walking around having a regular business day. But there's plenty of evidence from...oh...history that one or two other people would have been mistakenly shot in the process.

    Sometimes the stupidity of the Right surprises me. Walsh doesn't realize the people of Boston were being sheltered FROM the cops, not from the terrorists. As we saw last year at the Empire state Building and a couple of months ago in LA, people who are armed and afraid like to shoot their guns. For god sake, they lit up Watertown last Thursday night against two guys with a couple of grenades and a 9 mm between them. On Friday, they fired upon a injured kid, sans gun, in a boat.

    And, dang it, I don't really blame them. But, it's the people of Boston of were in danger by the "small army" roaming the streets. Mr. Second Amendment is entirely too stupid to know that?

  93. I, uh, actually meant "guns-and-ammo shop right next door to a compressed hydrogen tank factory," because that seemed topical. But please, tell me more about your hall closet.

    I LoL'd. I think gingko must be one of those inherently funny words that S.J. Perleman believed in using, like Kapok, Mackintosh, Kiwaniis, etc...

  104. Sentiments such as Walsh's seem to be going around the Right--see for instance Roger Kimball's latest effusion. They really seem invested in the idea of an armed citizen mob taking the law into its own hands. I fully expect a defense of lynching to run in the National Review or the New Criterion before the year is out.

    Yeah, if they'd tried to pull that shit in Florida, The People would have taken one look at the turned-around baseball caps and blown them away before they could put their backpacks down. If they had been black.

  107. This whole wingnut meme about "cowering" New England liberals is really fucking pissing me off. Some of the most stone courageous people I have ever known in my life, people whose judgment and skills I would trust implicitly in any life-threatening situation, happen to be New England liberals. Courage does not come out of the barrel of a gun.

    Surely you meant re-run in the National Review.
