Glazer: Scribe Calls for an End to Violence

Since the 1999 Columbine tragedy there have been more than 60 school shootings…

Double that of the decade before with 181 killed. These tragedies always result in calls for tightening gun laws. But according to the Huffington Post, these proposed laws would do NO good for the most part. There’s no evidence that would slow down the mass killings.

Look, those are just school shooting numbers. Which doesn’t take into account the rampage killings in churches, shopping malls (like Ward Parkway in Kansas City), movie theaters, sporting events and so on.

If you’re like me – and you all are, right? – you’ve probably always thought, “Boy, I’m glad I don’t live in Israel or the Middle East. It’s too dangerous there.” 

And I’m not talking about all the wars, I mean just going out to a restaurant or staying at a hotel even. Seems there are attacks over there almost weekly. Suicide bomber nuts.

Well, maybe we’re not much better off here in America.

More than 50% of these nutcase shooters are killed at the scene of their crimes or commit suicide or are shot by the police. Yes, it’s a planned death for both sides.

Why? Hate? Hopelessness? Stress? All of the above?

It seems more than ever people today want to blame another group of people for the trouble in their lives. And those that commit these senseless, violent acts seem to want to die.

So they take out innocent men and women at work, school or even a movie theater.

The recent attack on a temple in Wisconsin is now almost a, “Oh, another one. Happens” kind of thing.  We’re starting to get used to things like this. They come at us so quickly and so often we can’t keep up mentally with the horror of each separate shooting spree.

It all turns into a kind of reality’ show.

It’s not real. Not unless you were actually there,or it directly affects you or your family.

Now for the first time – as an American – I think about the possibility of a shooting attack when I am in a large crowd. I never used too.

Maybe we all need to stop blaming others for our problems and slow down on the hate game.

Parents need to get more involved with teaching their children to accept those who are different from them. There is no easy answer, there is no one answer.

I lived in a violent world as a young man. I chose to because thought it was cool, exciting, and dangerous.

It took me 10 years to find out that all of those thoughts were wrong. Seeing the end results teaches us that it solves nothing.

    You are right. People seem to be desensitized to violence compared to when I was growing up. It used to be even when there was a fight, if you won you stopped when your opponent gave up. It was more about pecking order. Now, the kids stab and shoot each other. Even the girls. It is usually some trivial crap that isn’t even worth arguing over, much less killing someone. Many parents don’t seem to be teaching their kids any social skills at all so they don’t even know how to act in a civilized manner. I’m worried where we will be in another 20 years.

  2. Jim says:

    Technology has destroyed……DESTROYED…….the social fabric of America. Ironically, people have never been LESS connected to each other than they are in today’s world. That isn’t going to change. The world is going to become more and more disconnected as the next generations are actually raised under the umbrella of all these technological “advances”. If you don’t think that laying on your couch and texting your best friend as opposed to jumping on your bike and riding 1/2 mile to his house and actually being PART of the world hasn’t had its consequences………you would be mistaken.

    • mike says:

      I agree with you. Many people, especially the youth are living in a virtual world where you don’t develop a full array of communication skills as you would in person. A large part of face to face communication is nonverbal. A person’s eyes and facial expression often tell more than what they are saying . Another thing is tone and inflection of voice. You will not learn these by texting or blogging.

  3. smartman says:

    Most modern day parents are useless as shit. Too busy being friends and getting high with their kids. No longer do parents, guardians, teachers, coaches or even cops strike institutional fear in the hearts and minds of children and teens. Not even a modicum of respect is afforded to these individuals.

    Lot of focus on the whack job in Wisconsin. How about Brian Murphy, cop, ex Marine, who was one of the first on site and wound up taking 9 bullets for his efforts. Where’s the celebration of his courage. Shit! Can’t do that. He’s a white guy.

    There have been more acts of violence and terrorism , attempted acts of domestic violence / domestic terrorism perpetrated or attempted on American soil by Muslims in the past 5 years than the MSM cares to illustrate or discuss. Yet we fail to profile so we can all be inconvenienced when we fly in the service of political correctness.

    Despite claims of hope and change the president has done more damage to black / white relations than he has done good. Just look at his hometown of Chicago. Black on black crime is out of control. Nobody wants to confront the issue for what it really is. A Great Society festering sore. But sonofabitch if Chick-fil-A can open a store in The Windy City. They don’t have Chicago values. No shit? Maybe things would be different if Chicago had Chick-fil-A values.

    Look at the recent revelation that the Justice Department cock blocked the prosecution of the black panthers in the Philadelphia polling place issue. Any wonder there is hatred and frustration among so many people against so many people of color and difference? Can’t tell you how many times a day I recite the Serenity Prayer.

    The failure of ethnics and minorities to properly assimilate into the big melting pot of the USA has blown the lid off. The post 911 solidarity that we all shared is GONE! We replaced it with targeted excuses and allowances for bad behavior. Good will has been replaced by acrimony. In some cases hatred or disdain is justified. Still it is no excuse for whacking innocent civilians. A lack of patience, understanding and morals associated with the decline of religion and God is certainly to blame. And remember, even Jesus got pissed and threw a fit in the temple. We all have our weak moments.

    We have never been so ideologically divided since the Founders decided to kell the king to go fuck himself. A house divided against itself cannot stand. That’s where we are. No amount of discourse and diplomacy can close this chasm. Yes, there will be more hatred and hate crimes. That’s a fact. Bad guys will always find a way to get guns. It’s easier for most people to pull a trigger than to pull themselves together. So you are correct in your concern about being involved in an attack whilst among the crowd. That is the reality of life in Cowtown-USA, 2012. Brought to you courtesy of LBJ, Arthur Benson and a biblical dose of public apathy and lack of political leadership.

  4. the dude says:

    Look man, just like Maurice Minnefield says at the end of No Country for Old Men this country was born out of violence, it has and always will be a violent place. The 24 hour news cycle just repeats and repeats until the next act of violence happens and we think things are getting worse when it has always been this way.

    “Whatcha got ain’t nothin new. This country’s hard on people, you can’t stop what’s coming, it ain’t all waiting on you. That’s vanity.”

    • mike says:

      There is a difference between violence for a cause and violence for no reason. We have always been willing to fight for what we believed in. Some of these kids now are killing people just for fun or to see what it is like. That is very different from our forefathers.

      • the dude says:

        So killing off the first nation people that lived here long before white peolple arrived and subjugating them to crappy, desert land is something to believe in? This country was founded on violence, period.

        Violence is violence man, there is no rationalizing it.

        • mike says:

          We are not unique in that regard. The native Americans killed each other for example. I’m not going to buy into this self loathing crap that we are somehow worse than anybody else.

          • the dude says:

            No self loathing here either, I view violence as violence, period. There is no ‘good’ violence, just violence. And it has always been here from the beginning and will stay here until the bitter end.

            Like I said before rationalization of violence is just that- rationalization of something that just is.

  5. Chuck says:

    God bless ya Glaze, but the anomalous shootings you are speaking of, which kill 6 people here and a dozen or more there, are just a few hours action in most major cites throughout the United States every night.

    Your chances of being shot in a theater, or a large crowd by a nut job are the same as my chances of hooking up with Blake Lively. Slim, scratch that none.

    Here is the problem.

    “Parents need to get more involved with teaching their children to accept those who are different from them. There is no easy answer, there is no one answer.”

    That is a superficial, temporary solution, that speaks to a level of amenity, and day to day existance with a dangerous entity. Necessary, but superflous with relation the endemic violence from a sub culture that is wrecking this country.

    The answer, unfortunately, is more violence. The ONLY thing that atavistic, violent feral killers understand, is NOT Hearts and Minds paens to decency and “Do Untoo Others” parables, but superior firepower.

    I love the irony of your mentioning the Mideast and Isreal. The dramatic increase in crime in Isreal and especially Tel Aviv is directly related to the 59,000 Sudanese and other African immigrants that have illegally entered Isreal and are now rending the fabric of that country. The solution? Netenyahu is shipping the immigrants back to Africa.

    http://articles.cnn.com/2012-06-17/middleeast/world_meast_israel-deports-immigrants_1_illegal-migrants-african-countries-south-sudan?_s=PM:MIDDLEEAST

    With thoose immigrants gone, that will make possible the continuatin of the lion’s share of violence in the Mideast generated by the cult of Islam and those terrorists who populate the countries with in close proximity to Israel. Logically, when surveying the violence and destruction the Religion of Peace has wrought in the Mideast, the Shedadah should be considered a mens rea conviction of violence every time it is uttered.

    This last weekend, at the Olympics, Serena Williams, after winning the Gold in tennis, provided a parasympathetic look at the schlerotic underbelly of multiculturalism and diversity. Just as we all have come to expect, right after the winning point, before you could say, “Cop Killa”, she did a little jig called the “Crip Dance”. For the most part, the major news affiliates, gave her the usual pass. Silence of course, being sanction, our 4th Estate’s de facto acceptance of this disgraceful episode will be viewed by all Americans, black and white, as further evidence of the acceptance of a violent and pernicious sub culture which is incessantly elevated to undeserved status by way looking consistantly up, during our consistant descent.

    Violence permeates America throughout all walks of life and all social levels. However, the majority of violence, accoridng to the US DEPT. OF JUSTICE is inner city, minority based.

    Affective thinkers armed with falacious conclusions populate the Federal Government, the 4th Estate, the MSM and Hollywood while promoting still more social engineering laws that tax an ever decreasing amount of the productive electorate, while the unambiguated results, are still more and more violence from the recipients of that same largesse.

    The increasingly diminished standards for immigration in conjunction with a army of alienated in place minorities will result in more, not less violence. The meal Ameicans serve themselves from this boiling bouillabaisse will be burn out tongues and bite our butts.

    The requirments for future safe existance in this country, will be an incrase in ordnance and the increase in the willingness to use it.

    Practice your “Crip” dance.

    • smartman says:

      Crip Walk….Crip Walk. Perfect opportunity for Willard to have a Sistah Souljah moment and he blew it.

      • Chuck says:

        Smarty, I was in no way surprised when I found out that Serena Williams was promoting an LA Gang known for murder, rape, drugs and mysogyny.

        In addition, after I found that out, I was in no way surprised at the pass the Media gave her on it.

        The apotheosis diversity, multiculturalism and the destruction of all things Judeo Christian and traditionally American continues unabated.

        • Jim says:

          Traditionally American? I get that. Judeo Christian? When you are talking about a “people” with a record of violence……..you couldn’t have found a better one.

        • smartman says:

          Bill Clinton woulda smacked that ass right out of the ballpark with 30 black ministers as his backdrop. Willard may indeed be ” too white” to be President. 80% of Americans don’t even know what dressage is.

          • paulwilsonkc says:

            Smarty, Chuck, Jim, Mike, SD, et al, HELLO!! Back from the beach and MAN… I missed you guys!!

            Craig, theres something to be said for getting off the plane in Isreal, walking off the jetway and coming face to face with what looks like a 16 year old Isreali girl……………… with a MACHINE GUN!!

            I think technology, video games and a general breakdown in the family unit has left us where we are today. Nothing matters. Not life, not intergrity, nothing.

            As for Serena and her “crip dance”…. you can take the kid out of the hood… but you can’t take the hood out of the kid!! We see it in the NFL, pro sports and yes… tennis.

            PS – good to see you guys!

  6. balbonis moleskine says:

    The statistics do not back you up.

    According to the FBI, violent crime dropped 9.7% in 2011 over 2010 numbers. While the US experienced a 6.4% drop.

    Your chances of being a victim of violent crime are half of what they were in 1992.

    Anecdotal evidence via 24 hour news outlets does not the truth make.

    • rkcal says:

      No, don’t give me facts! We have a scary looking (i.e., black) President with a funny name! Lord Jesus, black people are even good at gymnastics now! It’s the end of white people! Stockpile your weapons and get ready to defend those sacred Judeo-Christian values that we hold so dear but don’t follow in our personal life!

    • Chuck says:

      Good point Balbonis, but the temporary dip in crime, in the big picture does little to assuge my fears. A quote from your info.

      “Criminologists cite a host of potential reasons for the decline, with one common explanation being a rise in the number of people in prison. State imprisonment rates rose dramatically in the 1990s, by 62 percent, and remained relatively stable in the last decade, though many states have reported drops in the number of inmates in recent years.

      Other oft-cited reasons include changes in police practices (more proactive and reliant on data to target areas prone to crime), a rise in the number of police, an aging population with relatively fewer young people, and a reduction in the use of crack cocaine.”

      Those variables in no way change the cutlure and intent of the demographic who commits the crimes, and in fact, while that demographic continues ot increase, by way of birth rates and immigration, the band aide is just that, a bandaide–

      I am late for work, thanks for the imput, i will come back at ya later.

    • Chuck says:

      The astonishing level of criminal activity in America, despite a dip in the last 24 months across the board, is offset by the dramatic increases in demographically changing cites like Wash DC, Chicago and a litany of cities on THIS list.

      http://www.bizjournals.com/bizjournals/on-numbers/scott-thomas/2012/02/minorities-form-racial-majority-in-106.html

      A quick look at just a few.

      http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/feb/19/violent-crime-dc-surges-2012/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

      There are dozens of cities, including our own, where urban crime spills out into neighborhoods and flat out destroys those same neighborhoods.

      In addition, the newest aspect of African American falsh mob violence, writ large and small, is categorical vilence for violence’s sake against whites. What, if the situation were reversed, would be calle d hate crime. Those hate crimes against whites, however, will not be prosecuted as such, so says this categorical statement from our Attorney General, Eric Holder.

      http://araceagainsttime.blogspot.com/2009/06/attorney-general-holder-whites-not.html

      In Chicago, the President’s home town, Mr. Holder has saved himself a lot of work.

      http://www.wnd.com/2012/06/chicagos-unreported-race-war/

      African Americans make up 13% of the population and commit far in excess of 50% of the crimes. The FBI and US DEPT of Justice, in an effort to mitigate the horrific actions of this group of people, lump in Hispanics with Whites to off set the stats as much as possible.

      Then, after the crimes are committed, the MSM does all it can to mislead and obfuscate the ethnicity of the perps.

      http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/the-msms-unabashed-censorship/

      Look, in the context of Glazer’s original request, “An End To Violence”, my response is, there will be NO end to violence and in my opinion the violence will get worse and you should prepare for it.

      Our Federal Govt without the mandate of it’s electorate is sancitoning the crimes committed by the “Protected Class” while importing even more people who are member s of that same “Protected Class” the day they get off of the boat or cross the border.

      In Omaha and Dearborne and now Minnisota–

      http://cnsnews.com/news/article/minnesota-sheriff-reports-congress-growing-somalia-gang-threat-hennepin-county

      foreign nationals who will NEVER assimilate, in conjuction with a minority who has been fed cradle to the grave by way of tax dollars for 3 generations, will by way of birth rates and immigration, change the fabric of this country for the worse.

      All across Eur0pe, politicians are waking up to the disaster that uncontrolled immigration and multicultural, diversity initiatives have wrought. Its no tjust the Israelis sending immigrants home either.

      http://reason.com/blog/2012/08/07/mass-deportations-of-immigrants-from-gre

      This is a great article, which holds British politician’s feet to the fire, for the destructive outcomes resulting from unchecked immigration.

      http://www.express.co.uk/ourcomments/view/333097/Leo-McKinstry

      In the end, this Culture War will be decided at the voting booth, with the 4th Estate, in Hollywood and, in the streets.

      If you believe that it is ok, that there is no increase in the threat of riots and mayhem due to diversity and multiculturalism and your kids and their kids will all be singing Kumbaya and holding hands in a rainbow nation, then vote that way, vote for those politicians, read teh New York Times and the Kansas City Star and BELIVE them, and, of course, greet your fellow citizens of the world every day in the streets with a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

    @ balbonis, I responded, but the “Moderation” thing is keeping me off of the post???

    I didn’t forget you though.

    Maybe it will be on there tomorrow.
