TIME TO EXCLUDE THE DANGEROUS "INCLUDED"
Have you seen it? Foxnews.com had the video today of the 9-year-old Mississippi boy systematically punching and kicking pre-verbal toddlers in the daycare. It's a hard thing to watch, but thank whatever powers may be that his sadistic behavior was caught by the surveillance cameras. You should watch it, though, to see for yourself instead of having the evidence "interpolated" for you by the pundits of spin and the talking heads on the nightly news.
You'll see the child repeatedly, consciously look to see where the adults are before he inflicts hurt on the tiny children around him. He stops in his attacks several times to quiet the child, see if the adults are looking and then resume the assault. He is specific in his targets. There are older children around, but that's not the ones he goes after.
Some of the generally idiotic people among us, many in the field of educational administration, will point out that the child's behavior is definitely "learned." He has learned this brutalization by being brutalized or watching someone else brutalizing another or both. I don't doubt that. They'll also point out that the smaller children aren't supposed to be with older children and there's supposed to be an adult supervising them -- and there wasn't. Also true. (The article says the worker was fired because she plainly WASN'T where she was supposed to be, supervising the children. Just watch the video). They'll say he needs treatment and he needs therapy and has special needs which must be met, just like a child with a cleft palate or scoliosis or asthma. And like a child with a cleft palate or scoliosis or asthma or near-sightedness or in a wheelchair, he has the right to be "included" with other children in a scholastic or daycare setting.
They're wrong. He needs to be put in a cage or taken out and shot immediately for the protection of every child, animal or helpless adult around him. But I can almost guarantee you, he'll be one of those tagged with a "learning disability" or "conduct disorder" due to the very real injuries he has sustained, physical and psychic but not inherent, while being brutalized by whomever his tutor in sadism was. I'm sure he's been tagged for this violent behavior long before this incident, but the administration still allowed him in a daycare with children who cannot speak for themselves, much less protect themselves from a monster like him -- and then did not make an issue of supervising him at all times.
And whatever damage he does to others, until he reaches an age recognized by Mississippi as eligible for criminal prosecution, the educational administration, social services and political correctness will undoubtedly continue to insist that little freak be included as a special needs child in regular classrooms with regular kids, putting ALL of the children around him at risk, instead of shunting him off to the nearest high-risk mental institution for violent offenders now for the safety of the community.
Fortunately, Mississippi still has the death penalty. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court has ruled that it's unconstitutional to sentence juvenile offenders to life in prison. Frankly, that's the only thing that's going to keep other children safe from this monster. He’s broken and there's no fixing him. I wonder how much damage he'll do before someone decides he's not worth the powder to blow him to hell.

THE RISE OF ISLAMIC TOTALITARIANISM
First it was the giant Buddhas that the Taliban decided to mortar and deface. Now another Islamic fringe is destroying historic Islamic and archeologically significant sites in Timbuktu -- those of an opposing and older Islamic branch. It's kind of like the old Catholic Church burning the Protestants at the stake for heresy. Of course, then the Protestants burned other Protestants and anyone of an opposing view at the stake for so-called heresy. And when they finally got tired of killing everybody else, they decided to kill their own for a while. And while they were conducting their "holy war," they were padding their pockets by looting everything anyone else had.
But religion and faith have nothing to do with it. It's rampant hooliganism in the name of religion with a more sinister goal for the behind-the-scenes organizers.
This is at least the second World Heritage site, respected by all religions, all nations, for what it represents to our global culture that is being destroyed by a bunch of functional illiterates whipped into a frenzy by demagogues with delusions of godhood. It's not enough to deface every painting, every depiction of human form with a spurious claim of religious sensibilities, these fanatics have to erase anything that doesn't coincide with their personal belief, their personal interpretation of the Quran. And when it's over, they expect everyone to whom they have shown such disrespect and contempt to bow down and kiss their feet.
We've seen these people before, in different guises, different countries, different eras. "Totalitarian regimes are characterized by a commitment to a specific ideology. The ideology serves the state by defining the past, explaining the present and predicting the future. It establishes guidelines for remolding society in the image held by the rulers."
Make no mistake. They're not seeking to establish a theocracy. They're not seeking to establish a kind of heaven on earth, all people are one in Islam, etc. They're after control, total control, over everyone and everything, according to rules that only they have the power to establish and to which everyone else is subordinate.
"To control the behavior of its citizens, totalitarian regimes recognize no limits to the means by which their ends are achieved. Totalitarian regimes will use any techniques - physical or psychological to achieve absolute control over society."
These fanatics want to erase history, because it's from history that we learn. It's from the lessons of the past that we have come to cherish freedom and choice.
If we look at this historically, we're at the "Brown Shirts" beginning of the totalitarian regime. We're experiencing in several countries simultaneously a kind of "Kristallnacht," an Islamic version of coordinated attacks against different Islamic and non-Islamic believers, while the governments in those countries, purportedly Islamic nations, are closing their eyes to the destruction.
The test will be how long the other Muslims in every country will tolerate the terrorists in their midst. If they think for one moment, as the German people did, that so long as they are quiet, mind their business and congratulate themselves that THEY are not the target of these terrorists that they'll be all right, they are deluding themselves. The German people learned this bitter lesson. You pay for your indifference. You pay for your silence. You pay with your property, your lives, your heritage and your freedom. You children pay with a heritage of shame that you allowed this to happen and graveyards full of the unjustly persecuted and murdered.
These men tear down; they do not build. And when they're finished, if they're allowed to accomplish their goal of destruction and subjugation, they will leave nothing but ashes. The world's citizens needs to identify these destroyers and put a price on their heads like the bandits they are. And when they are identified, caught and tried, they need to be erased from the world, as they have tried to erase the rights, freedom and history of everyone else.
What's the Quranic equivalent of "wake the hell up, people!"
