Following the high school shooting in Texas on Friday, many were asking the wrong questions. Some were asking, how could this happen? Others were asking, how could future massacres be prevented? Still others saw an opportunity to promote gun control, including the president and the governor of Texas. Said Trump: “This has been going on too long in our country … [my administration is] determined to do everything in our power to protect our students, secure our schools and to keep weapons out of the hands for those who pose a threat to themselves and to others.”
Right behind him was Texas Governor Greg Abbott who claimed that “We need to do more than just pray for the victims.”
Hollywood starlets weighed in on the matter, blaming the NRA. “Charmed” star Alyssa Milano – the starlet who formed an anti-NRA campaign last month – tweeted:
More dead children.
WE CAN’T CONTINUE THIS MADNESS! WE ARE DONE!
We’re done with your – “the NRA didn’t pull the trigger” – spin. We are done with your pity, thoughts and prayers.
You flooded America with guns.
The gun lobby and gun manufacturers value profit over lives.
Actor and comedian John Leguizamo decried the lack of “sensible gun laws” in the country, tweeting:
My heart goes out to all these kids and parents that have to live in terror when they send their kids off to school because we don’t have sensible gun laws in American because of the NRA and Republicans!
Senator Rand Paul blamed the gun free zone that virtually invited the shooter to wreak havoc:
I think the first thing we should do is, there needs to be an announcement by every school district that we’re going to defend our children, and that we’re not going to have a sign outside that [says], ‘We’re defenseless.’
He added that only an unbalanced individual could even conceive of such behavior:
And I think that’s the problem … that we do have these homicidal or crazy or mentally disturbed kids.
The Firearms Policy Coalition also expressed its frustration over gun free zones as a causative factor in Friday’s shooting:
Yet again we see the disastrous consequences of reliance on magical thinking and mystical “gun-free” zones.
Yet again we see that evil and insane people intent on causing death, injury, and chaos simply ignore the thousands of federal, state, and local criminal laws that criminalize conduct including murder, terrorism, assault, and illegally carrying guns onto school grounds.
And it’s only the evil and insane who would carry out such madness:
Yet again our news outlets show us proof that the evil and insane will find a way to hurt or kill the innocent in so-called “gun free” zones until they voluntarily end their attack, commit suicide, or are stopped by a hero – often one who is armed.
But there’s a problem: the shooter, for all outward appearances, is a normal 17-year-old. He played football on the JV team for his school. He performed in a dance troupe for his church. His Greek Orthodox priest said “He’s a quiet boy. You would never think he would do anything like this.”
Why is everyone surprised? Take a look at the trench coat that he wore to class every day. It appeared on his Facebook page (before it was taken down) and included signs and symbols of his belief system: There was a pin showing the communist Hammer and Sickle, a Nazi Iron Cross, a symbol of the Rising Sun (perhaps a reference to the title of John Toland’s book of the same name about the Second World War written from the Japanese perspective), an icon of Baphomet (the Satanic Temple’s defiance against traditional Christianity) and an icon celebrating Cthulhu (a cosmic entity worshipped by cultists).
Where did the shooter obtain these signs, pins, and symbols? Did he get them from his church? Were they passed out after football practice? Did he just happen to wander into a pawn shop and see them and decide to purchase and then display them?
A better question is this: where did the shooter spend most of his daylight hours? In a public school! And what did that school teach about such things? Did it teach Darwin’s theory of evolution? That he came from nowhere and is headed nowhere and so his behavior, good or bad, didn’t really matter? That morality is subjective? Did it teach about “social justice”? Did it teach that science proves everything and that the Bible was therefore mythological and irrelevant? Did it promote the excoriation of the founders of the republic as “dead white males” who lived 200 years ago but who are irrelevant today?
The problem isn’t guns or their easy availability. The problem isn’t gun free zones. It’s the corrupt culture, with public schools leading the way.
One grieved student wrote a letter to God: “Why do you allow so much violence in our schools?” God answered bluntly: “I am not allowed in schools.”
President Abraham Lincoln anticipated our present situation in his speech entitled “The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions”:
Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia, and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest, with a Bonaparte for a commander, could not by force take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge in a trial of a thousand years.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer. If it ever reaches us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide.
It helps that there has been a coordinated movement to remove God from the classroom and the culture in order to make the transition from a sovereign nation – One Nation Under God – to an emasculated part of the One World Under Man.
It’s predictable, and historical. It’s called “pressure from below and pressure from above” as described in 1971 by Gary Allen and Larry Abraham in None Call it Conspiracy:
What we are witnessing is the Communist tactic of pressure from above and pressure from below, described by Communist historian Jan Kozak as the device used by the Reds to capture control of Czecho-Slovakia.
The pressure from above comes from secret, ostensibly respectable Comrades in the government and Establishment, forming, with the radicalized mobs in the streets below, a giant pincer around middle-class society.
The street rioters are pawns, shills, puppets, and dupes for an oligarchy of elitist conspirators working above to turn America’s limited government into an unlimited government with total control over our lives and property.
Fast forward to last Friday in Santa Fe, Texas. A student, deprived of any understanding whatsoever of Jesus Christ, the revelation of God, is left to his own devices. He becomes the useful idiot – the pawn, the shill, the puppet, the dupe – in the grand scheme. As he fires into the crowd of students attending art class early Friday morning, he is unknowingly applying pressure from below: causing outrage by parents and others in the community over such a horrific event.
From above comes the mainstream media and its partners like Everytown, pressing for more gun control. In the middle is not the middle class but the feckless, ignorant, and spineless politicians who feel the heat and vote for more gun control.
Absent another Great Awakening, there will be more shootings by monsters educated in the public schools, increasing both in intensity and in frequency. This shouldn’t surprise anyone who knows his history.
