Alexei Pushkov is right: Navy Yard shooting is “a clear confirmation of American exceptionalism.”

Why Russian lawmaker Alexei Pushkov is right:

The US and its citizens deluded subjects seem to think that the US is somehow exempt from the laws of history, of nature, and of logic that govern everyone and everything else. Last I checked, that’s the sin of pride or perhaps hubris or megalomania.

The American ruling elite government gets to make the rules for the entire world because might makes right the US is the only nation founded on the principles of liberty (even though the Tea Party is considered dangerous, and few politicians pay lip service to the Constitution any more). Or maybe we’re “exceptional” because the US was supposedly founded on the principle of “equality” – which means we get to lord it over the rest of the world.

Go figure.

Read the Bible to understand Russia

Russia is an Orthodox Christian nation, and its leaders rightly consider it un-Christian to claim inherent superiority on the grounds of one’s nationality.

Galatians 3:28-29 (KJV)

28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Why did the Navy Yard shooting take place?

Yes, there is evil in the world, and that will be true until the end of time.

Yes, every country has its angry people and its mentally ill.

But then, not every country allows the angry and the mentally ill free rein to wreak havoc. Not every political elite stirs up racial hatred and violence for political gain, while censoring the news coverage of the inevitable outcome.

Like our president, the shooter, Aaron Alexis, was never properly vetted before being placed in a position of responsibility. He was allowed to keep his security clearance despite his long history of erratic and violent behavior, his fulminating rage, and his florid delusions.

Affirmative action hires are evaluated by an entirely different set of standards, which often amounts to absolutely no standards whatsoever. That’s what affirmative action is all about: bending the rules to make room for the undeserving and grotesquely unqualified (and often, the dishonest and dangerous).

Americans have all gotten the memo from HR: questioning the racial hire is verboten.

Political correctness and “diversity” goals must be enforced at any cost. Hence Nidal Hasan the Muslim, Bradley a/k/a “Chelsea Elizabeth” Manning the “LGBT”.

Here’s where this sick point of view comes from.

There’s another, unknown victim here: the DESERVING job seeker with good qualifications, good character, and a clean record who did NOT get the IT job because the government contractor hired Aaron Alexis in order to fulfill a “diversity” quota. We do not know the identity of this deserving job-seeker, but if he or she had been hired, thirteen people would be alive and we would not be having this conversation.

Affirmative action is pure evil.

RIA Novosti has the story:

MOSCOW, September 16 (Associated Press) – A prominent member of Russia’s parliament has exploited the deadly shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington to ridicule the United States.

Alexei Pushkov, who heads the international affairs committee, tweeted Monday that “nobody’s even surprised anymore” by such an attack, which he called “a clear confirmation of American exceptionalism.”

Pushkov, who also hosts a political talk show, serves as a mouthpiece for the Kremlin’s most anti-American faction.

In an opinion piece published last week in The New York Times, Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized America for seeing itself as exceptional. He was referring to a speech by President Barack Obama in which he said America’s ideals and principles made it want to hold the Syrian government accountable for a chemical weapons attack and, “That’s what makes us exceptional.”

Alexei Pushkov is spot on. It was as if I was reading my own comments that were NOT allowed to be published in GOPUSA which I find to be a most curious thing after over 5 years of writing there. It seems that it might now to be better to write in Russia!

The Founders said of their EXPERIMENT in a Representative Republic (NOT a democracy mind you ) that for the whole thing to work, the American People had to be a MORAL people, religious… and in this context of the time, Christian. They did not bother to say Christian, because they could not in their wildest nightmares or imagination that their America would be inundated by militant atheists, Muslims and other non Christian religions, devoured by perversity, consumed by the rot of homosexuality, and crucified on the Cross of Consumerism. They could not imagine that the Christians and their leadership would be so readily be inclined to SUBMIT to the Government and it’s myriad of agencies.

The Founders could not imagine one other thing. It was their opinion that the America that existed in their time, was unique in being, that of a people that were similar, in culture, language, religion and yes, in race. In this was yet another key to the survival of their EXPERIMENT.

What Mister Pushkov has essentially pointed out, is that we have thrown away the “KEYS” that The Founders thought so essential and unique, and yet surprisingly, there remains this hubris, this irrational twist of thinking, of logic, that somehow we, the USA are immune to the slings & arrows, the self made internal damage that takes Nations to the Graveyard. It is as if we were a smoker, and the Doctor has told us we have cancer of the lungs, and that it has metastasized to the rest of the body. What do we do? Light another cigarette, and blow the smoke in the Doctor’s face!

We achieved this level of haught because? Because we have flirted with murderous things and survived. A destructive war set out like the Dogs of War inside our own domain, killed over 700,000 Americans, and the Victors at least, could see no ill effect, rather an affirmation that The Union was unique and God chosen. That was a powerful drug.

Scoffing at The Founders to be wary of international entanglements, we pursued adventures via WAR, and resulting conquest, again with no perceivable ill effect, pass another cigarette. (The Spanish American War 1898 )

And the ultimate head rush was to engage ourselves in the European affairs of a massive war thus achieving our involvement in World War One. Well, that went swimmingly well for us, but NOT for Europe, and certainly NOT for Russia! But who cares, as God shines his grace on thee! And then yet another World War and our involvement ultimately led to no skin off our nose but rather hoisting the Nation into a World Leader.

The Cold War. The sins of the First World War, were still the Devil’s Workshop and through a series of more wars, and countless treasure, blood and toil, the Devil was sent packing, for awhile. Americans love winners. We love ourselves. And this is where we step off onto “The Sandy Beach of Nations”, to flex our muscles, to kick sand in the face of others we deem unworthy. Led by our uniquely unworthy people, we bully our way across “The Beach” oiling up, flexing our rippling muscles, admiring our image, our hair is even perfect! Nothing could go wrong, as we puff on another cigarette. (copy right this please.)

Re: Affirmative Action is pure evil.”

It’s only one symptom of our libertine progression (“progressively liberal”) society: the extortionist gangster’s main allibit excuse for their crimes: foreced predeterminism, aka group-might-makes-rights.

And it only exists to use to avoid self-reliant responsibility for their crimes, as an excuse to agitate for the equally false right to remain irresponsibly wrong, instead of the responsibility to become right.

We must stop people from pretending there are group rights at all. When groups have rights, those not in those groups have LESS rights, and so all such laws discriminate against real individual human citizens; they are illegal “laws.” Government is us – it’s our largest, bulk-buying best priced collectively-owned insurance company; those we hire (‘elect’) to run it, are supposed only to maintain it and defend our collective needs, never cater to private wants, and so it’s certainly NOT their job to sell it all off, especially not to our self-declared enemies, by buying their money!

Fred Bastiat noted something like “We all have the natural right to self-defense; bad laws are those which try to deprive us of that right.”

Liberals always insist only groups have rights, and so the only defense we need is the government; ergo, we must, in stead, all strive to learn to become better victims. It’s our civic duty! Whee!

The only real ‘rule’ of morality and civilization is the Golden Rule of Law, which is simply: “Do Not Attack First.” All sub-sequent laws should be based on this. That way, the only real right anyone has, is to not be attacked first, and our only real responsibility is to not attack innocent others first.

Thus we as real human individuals have a natural right to self-defense. Especially from gangs.

By agreeing to this one simple rule, we achieve trust, progress, and civilization.

By idolatrously pretending to defend our false group-might-made “rights,” we can falsely and pre-posterously “justify” ourselves in attacking innocent others “in response” to historical grievances suffered by someone else (but members of “our group” – right OR WRONG)! This is how and why idolatrous liberals (and moslems) sell tribal group rights and ignore basic individual human rights, endorsing the false brazen rule of chaos, where they declare their tribal group-god insists only they have the right and duty to always attack all the non-members of their gangs first – from which they inflict on themselves and everyone else, distrust, stagnation, and barbarism … the true jungle law of “might makes right” and mob-rule: the gangsters’ criminal extortion rackets.

“All minorities were decimated into that status by oppressive majorities! Always!”

“We have to let the violent criminals do what they want to us, or else they’ll do what they want to us anyway!”

“We must all learn to Submit to extortion and learn to become better victims, thus maintaining the imaginary moral high ground!”

By endorsing group rights, any criminal has an automatic alibi for their crimes, if they can pre-posterously claim “retaliation” for something that once happened anywhere to anyone even only vaguely or remotely “like them.”

Then they can always claim “acting under mental duress of institutional oppression” excuses.

Which is basically just another variant on the institutional systematic procedural favorite:

“I didn’t do it – ONLY The GROUP did it! Whee!” always endorsed by corporate government types!

The group rights stance is always idolatry and slanderous, prejudicial fraud and extortion; it’s crime.

And that’s the whole liberal “group rights” extortion credo in a nuts hell: it pretends to give them the excuse to take other people’s stuff while still claiming victimhood (“I had no choice!”) status!

Liberalism is pure criminal negligence: “I subjectively neglect my fearful objective responsibility to not attack you others first, SO that I can thereby, slanderously claim my greedy right to not be attacked BY YOU first! Whee!”

Obviously, this also embodies the creed of islam and sharia BY codifyng it and writing it down and justifying it by this us-versus-them, might-makes-right illusion of static predeterminism (men are bigger than women and better than infidels, and the ends – my safety – justify the means – attacking you first – anyway!) idolatrous allah-bi excuse for crime stance(!)

;-(

Any law-abiding Conservative concerned with maintaining individual rights, is opposed by conformist gangsters who seek to avoid their own self-reliant responsibility by pretending to be victims of other groups, who must therefore form into even bigger groups for their own protection and extort him to join them for his own good. The right wants equality of opportunity, while the left wants equality of outcome, disregarding variable individual motivations and efforts.

(Submission to criminal extortion is why liberals and moslems are such friends to each other)!

When groups have rights, individuals don’t – simply because such a stance creates an injustice system, where some people (these days, in the West, who are part of some subjectively determined “identifiable protected minority groups,” including “women’s rights”) have more rights than others, which means those others have LESS rights than the protected group, and so are to be officially and slanderously pre-judged as guilty until never proven innocent in comparison.

Pre-judice is slander, and vice-versa. Group rights is pre-judicial, obviously false idolatry, slander, and fraud – it’s a crime.

Reversing the onus of proof to guilty until never proven innocent is fradulent prejudicial slander and might-makes-right extortion (crime)!

It’s attacking first!

Any so-called Judges or politicians who supported and enabled these crimes are guilty of same.

They are also guilty of criminal harrassment and extortion (conformity, like all communazis want for everyone, is extortion; aka terrorism).

Any “legal” system which endorses group rights – even “minority” ones – is NOT a legal system at all: It’s only an extortion-promoting CRIME system!

;-(

…and, as for multiculturalism (which is racism) and reverse discrimination or preferential hiring policies: it’s the same old canard of communists everywhere, inflicting and extorting a forced equality of outcome, rather than equality of opportunity, which of course always really only punishes those who could otherwise succeed, and rewards those who choose not to.

It’s pre-emptively victim-blaming slander, as well:

“Because someone sort of like you may have once discriminated against someone sort of like them somewhere (not necessarily even here,) therefore we will take from you and give to them.”

This is where group-might-made-rights gets us: all the real human individual citizens are deprived of their real human rights, because liberal cry babies want to pretend that “All minorities were oppressed, decimated and genocided into their minority status by evil majorities! Always!”

So if Abdul is the first member of his tribe to arrive here, and after a merely subjective amount of time has passed without him becoming President – whether he tried to or not – some liberal will cry “Unfair!” and hold its breath until it turns blue to extort the outcome it wants. (See, for example, “Obama”)!

Thank you for connecting the multitude of dots between America’s chair-warmer in chief, Nidal Hasan and this latest thug that Affirmative Action allowed into the fold. 100 years ago, none of the above three would have had a snowball’s chance in hell of doing what they’ve done. Only today’s PCMC (Politically Correct Multi-Culturalism) allows for such drooling idiocy.

Uncle Vladdi: “I didn’t do it – ONLY The GROUP did it! Whee!” always endorsed by corporate government types!

Great summary, Uncle Vladdi. This is what Muslims, gays, animal rights loons and feminists all use to exculpate themselves from the vile acts of their more radical factions. Even more vile is the solution; more government laws to protect these “moderates” from having to assume any collective guilt for the actions of those whom their silence tacitly approves of.

Your whole issue about “group rights” is a Root Cause of this insanity. It encourages Big Government™ and spurs the growth of same at, as you cogently note, a direct cost to individual rights. One look at how a tiny percent of America’s population (i.e., Muslims) have necessitated the astronomically expensive DHS and TSA superstructures without one repercussion for a community that remains deafeningly silent over the spate of global terrorism despite how it is, almost unanimously, a unique feature of Islam and no other organization.

And that’s the whole liberal “group rights” extortion credo in a nuts hell: it pretends to give them the excuse to take other people’s stuff while still claiming victimhood (“I had no choice!”) status!

“Nuts hell”? Methinks that was intentional and no typo. [file for future plagiarism]

The whole “I had no choice” meme, again, resonates with the excuses of Muslims and (almost exclusively) Black criminals everywhere. It is a modern day equivalent of “The Devil made me do it!” This forms the basis for idiotic formulas like, Poverty causes crime, terrorism or whatever mal du jour is supposed to deserve our sympathy instead of getting a boot up the arse like it so desperately needs.

idolatrous allah-bi excuse for crime stance

“Allah bi”. Crikey, you’re just full of them tonight! What a keeper! Plus, yes, your extension of the whole ““I subjectively neglect my fearful objective responsibility to not attack you others first, SO that I can thereby, slanderously claim my greedy right to not be attacked BY YOU first!” is another, albeit convoluted, sound expression of how Liberals demur when it comes to such unpleasant tasks as making war upon violent enemies even as they prop up a Big Government™ that will make all the war for them, over their flaccid, unenthusiastic protestations.

In this, Syria is the biggest straw man ever. “Oh yes, we must attack that evil, nasty chemical-weapon-using Assad right now! Hey, wait a minute, pay no attention to the cannibalistic al Qaeda terrorist behind that curtain! Darn, darn, darn, now you’ve ruined it all. My Big Red Line™ and everything. All for naught! Sob!”

@Zenster: Exactly. ALL criminal gangsterss (libertine liberals, tribal muslims, corporazi banksters) use idolatrous might-makes-right pre-determinism alibi excuses to pretend they – we all – are really only helpless fallible victims (i.e” of society, products of our environments, and slaves of allah) to avoid admitting to any self-reliant responsibility for their crimes.

The people in “government” and “law enforcement” prefer to pretend
“It was a Systemic Problem” (i.e: We humans didn’t do it – ONLY The SYSTEM did it!”) “Whee!”

Other synonyms for “ONLY The GROUP did it!” are “the Procedures” did it, etc – cops love this one, when they get caught blatantly violating citizen rights/committing crimes – as if they have to be told in each and every instance NOT to vilate the most basic and simple PRINCIPLE of morality, aka the Golden Rule of Law:
“Do Not Attack First!”

This is also how sharia “law” (crime) is set up – it lists the ‘ethics’ – all the rules of how to proceed once one HAS decided to void the moral code/social contract BY attacking first (ethics are for people without morality)!

i.e: “Murder is always bad – except on Tuesdays from between 3 AM and 4 PM!”

WHAT?! It’s ALSO bad during those times? “I Did Not Know That.” Please re-educate me; the procedures need to be updated, and obviously The System is broken, but I didn’t do it! Whee!

This is idolatry (excuse-making) at it’s ‘best’ (worst).

And yes, I did say “nuts hell” intentionally – I originally came up with that split when referencing Muhammad’s vile criminal creed, but as you’ve noticed it applies to all criminals equally LOL!

And YES, Obama’s red line involves the inane, insane notion that:
“Quick, men! We must bomb Syria to stop the Syrians from bombing Syria! Whee!”

“Let’s give our lives & treasures to support our al-Quaeda allies against another sovereign national government (and fellow UN member) who didn’t attack us! Who’s with me!?”

Uncle Vladdi: The people in “government” and “law enforcement” prefer to pretend “It was a Systemic Problem”

This reminds me very little of the way that—garsh I hate this Newspeak term—”passive aggressive” groups try to frame inanimate objects with conscious motivation. As in, “gun violence”. What? You mean that guns have a violent disposition and all it takes is a sidewise glance to set them off? Who knew?

And here I was, always thinking that it actually took someone to pull the bling-blanged trigger in order to commit any of that delicious violence. Instead, it’s so much more simple (and entirely without assignable motive). It’s the guns that are violent. What a concept!

So, instead, we are supposed to believe in gun violence, drug violence, street crime (who knew streets had such criminal tendencies?), and all the other delightfully oblique euphemisms that allow Liberals to spill their guts (as in, Won’t someone please think of the children!), without ever having to point a finger at anything other than an inanimate object. No personal accountability. No individual responsibility. No obligatory ethics or morals. No right or wrong. Just these incessant accusations against completely amoral, inert tools that require motive force in order to cause any effect.

Needless to say (then why say it?), it’s this whole Cause and Effect thingy—along with that ultimately mysterious Law of Unintended Consequences™—which causes so much confusion and disorder among the ranks of Liberals. Nothing that a dose of logic, reason and rationality can’t cure but you would have better chances of success serving Stilton fondue to a Meiji era Samurai than hoping Liberals will ever succumb to common sense, a commodity which is altogether too uncommon these days.

Gah!

8 Uncle Vladdi September 20, 2013 at 7:14 pm

Exactly! It’s the use of the so-called “passive voice” as a great book I once read called:
“Mistakes Were Made (but not by me)!” puts it.
