Good morning, kids. Tuesday and yet again, a mentally disturbed young man committed mass murder via a gun, this time at a July 4th parade in the tony Chicago suburb of Highland Park, IL. So far, six have been confirmed dead and a number of others wounded. Despite the fact that the state of Illinois has the sixth most stringent anti-Second Amendment laws in the nation, including red flag laws, assault weapons bans and so forth, the junta and its local and state political acolytes as well as all the usual propaganda organs are yet again ramping up the calls to disarm the American citizenry without even the slightest regard for WHY this individual did what he did. The reason for that is simple because the un-indicted co-conspirator in this crime — as well as virtually every other similar mass shooting and dare I say it every act of criminal violence in our inner cities that collectively constitute a body count similar to that of the “War on Terror” every year — is the societal, cultural rot inflicted on us for the past 60 years by the Democrat Party and the plot to transform this country into a socialist totalitarian nightmare.
Funny how whenever a so-called “hate crime” occurs, even if its a mass-shooting such as the horrific slaughter a few years back at a black church in South Carolina, just the opposite happens. The weapon is almost incidental to the motive, even if race was provably incidental. The bromide of black victimhood at the hands if institutional white supremacy trumps that of guns, which if used in a state or municipality where the Second Amendment is pretty much in force as written, is the icing on the cake in the attack on America as founded.
So far, there’s still not a lot of details about the deviant in question, but if you got a look at his picture, he bears a striking resemblance to the pierced, tattooed, Krylon-haired Democrat-supported sturmabteilung political street terror group known as Antifa. His hideous pan would fit right in next to that lineup we saw a few years back when the Portland PD had that display of its unmasked Antifa rogue’s gallery.
According to reports, the suspect had a YouTube page under the handle “Awake the Rapper.” One video that has raised Twitter users’ eyebrows shows a pencil drawing of a person gunning down a crowd in between a montage of shots featuring the suspect backed by cinematic-like music.
Other documentation of the suspect shows him wearing a Trump flag around his neck, wearing a black hat with FBI embroidered in white, and smoking Camel cigarettes. He can also be seen at a Trump parade, where he was dressed like “Waldo” from the “Where’s Waldo” cartoon book series.
However, a Twitter account using the alleged suspect’s artist name scrolls through what posts he “liked” on the platform — most of which indicate support for arresting Trump supporters who protested the results of the 2020 Presidential Election and rioted at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
I can’t find it, but I did see a link yesterday that the perp is indeed linked in some way to Antifa, either as someone who at a minimum supports them on social(ist) media. Highland Park also has a very large Jewish population. If I were a a betting man, given what we do know, I’d say his Twitter, Facebook and other posts are being scrubbed as we speak. Of course the volume will be cranked up to leventy-leven to disarm the citizenry, especially given last week’s smackdown of NY’s concealed carry restrictions (already being ignored and circumvented by my soon-to-be former state of residence), and as a convenient underscoring of the Left’s America-hatred on the very day of it’s founding.
Before the usual gang of idiots starts screaming “Uvalde!,” the same set of societal ills that drove this nut-burger to open fire in Illinois apply with equal force. And add on top of it, the rank incompetence on top of the political pressure of the Defund the Police movement that created yet another clone of Scott Israel leading a squad of Meal Team 6-ers. The same conditions in Highland Park can be applied in Uvalde as well. Society is to blame. That is, The Great Society and all that came after which culminated in the Hope and Change of Fundamental Transformation.
Guilty as sin. Yet free as a bird.
