The Fruits of Victimhood

Reuters has a piece up highlighting the continuing “gun violence plaguing the city” of Chicago and including a plea from Jesse Jackson to President Obama to come and address the issue, because “when the president shows up, it shows ultimate national seriousness.” Jackson is also quoted saying, “My greatest fear about the gun violence in Chicago is that we’re adjusting to it.” According to the story, he also called for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago. The article quotes Anita Crittenden, who lost a nephew to gun violence last year, saying that Obama, by coming to Chicago, would “get the leaders to think and step up and make some changes.”

The article ends with:

Not everyone participating in the march agreed that Obama should come home. Matthew McGill said the president should address the violence issue, but need not single out Chicago, “because what you see in Chicago happens in other cities as well.”

What a bleak worldview. Gun Violence plagues the city. Lost a nephew to gun violence. We’re getting used to it. Get the leaders to listen, step up and make changes. Call in the national troops. And, of course, it’s bad other places, too.

It’s hard to know where to begin because these sad bastards are screwed up in SO MANY WAYS. They’ve been so marinated in victimhood they are completely paralyzed. They don’t even see murder for what it is; they see “Gun Violence.” Anita’s nephew wasn’t murdered; he was lost. And it’s not for us to protect our families, our homes, our neighborhoods or our schools. Nope. Let’s get George Bush to fix it because seriousness.

Did I say George Bush? Oops. Everyone knows that that criminal buffoon couldn’t help even if he wanted to. And he doesn’t want to. Because warmonger. But Obama the lightbringer? His mere presence will end the “Plague of Gun Violence.” And I’m racist for calling him Chicago Jesus, FFS.

Really, can you imagine Jesse Jackson asking George W Bush to deploy Homeland Security troops into Chicago to patrol the streets?! But here we are, right now, in Obama’s Bizarro World where previously inconceivable evil has become a desirable solution to our problems. After all, the Constitution is old and irrelevant and the suspension of certain rights for all our good is for all our good. See? It’s so simple.

Ban guns. America becomes Chicago. The helpless throngs of unarmed, law-abiding citizens helpless victims cry for “action.” Our leaders call for troops as evidence of seriousness. And we all suddenly awake to the reason why Homeland Security requisitioned tens of thousands of military rifles and more ammo than has been fired in the entire Afghanistan War. What could go wrong?

A final thought. Jackson laments, “My greatest fear about the gun violence in Chicago is that we’re adjusting to it.” No shit, huh Sherlock? According to ABC7 Chicago is now in a far more violent state than when there were no gun control laws at all and Al Capone was in charge of the mob. You took all the guns away from the law-abiding and instantly turned them into victims. And now you act surprised that these same helpless fools have normalized the violence? You de-stigmatize murderers and criminals while you stigmatize firearms and threaten their legal owners. Which leads us to today, when the sociopaths have control and are the only ones with guns. What did you expect, Jesse?
