Background noise is getting obnoxious?

The Angry Liberal Mob by Derek Hunter – “Anger is kryptonite to logic, and for liberalism to work, to attract a large audience, logic has to be overridden.”

“There have been dozens of such events in recent times and not one member of the angry mobs could articulate a reason for it other than they were angry.

They, of course, didn’t say they were angry, they couched it in buzzwords like “hate speech” and “intolerance,” but none could explain exactly what someone they wouldn’t let speak had said that came anywhere close to these meaningless concepts and got their underwear so tight. But angry they were.
…
Now imagine a large percentage of a political party living in that space and you have the Democrats.

Long before, but particularly since the election of Donald Trump, the political left has turned the rhetoric designed to inspire anger up to 11.
…
And it’s not just political anger the left stirs now, at least not obviously political anger.
…
some of those pressure cookers are on automatic now, beyond the control of their creators.
…
The anger over manufactured victimhood among the various interest groups Democrats have herded into different pens is now on automatic pilot, with no affront too slight to bring about outrage. Even competing outrages over the same things.
…
“Feel, don’t think; just act” is a dangerous mindset, yet it’s what the left is conditioning people to do. Coupled with tribalism and victimhood and there is nothing short of tragedy at the end of this road. I hope I’m wrong, but I see nothing to make me think I am; and I hope the left stops this insanity, but I see nothing to indicate they will.

Florida Teacher of the Year’s gun violence post goes viral after school shooting By Caleb Parke – “saying parents need to “step up” when it comes to their kids’ behavior.”

“Until we, as a country, are willing to get serious and talk about mental health issues, lack of available care for the mental health issues, lack of discipline in the home, horrendous lack of parental support when the schools are trying to control horrible behavior at school (oh no! Not MY KID. What did YOU do to cause my kid to react that way?), lack of moral values, and yes, I’ll say it – violent video games that take away all sensitivity to ANY compassion for others’ lives – as well as reality TV that makes it commonplace for people to constantly scream up in each others’ faces and not value any other person but themselves, we will have a gun problem in school

When Will We Have the Guts to Link Fatherlessness to School Shootings? By Susan L.M. Goldberg – “Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings”

“Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters.
…
despite the growing number of experts, pundits and commentators drawing attention to the impact of fatherlessness on school and community safety, the post-attack discussion inevitably reverts back to gun control. Instead of spending so much as fifteen minutes on fatherlessness we are forced to endure the same salacious headlines, the same provocative tweets, the same tired old memes about the evils of guns as if somehow a cold piece of metal convinced yet another boy to become a mass-murderer.
…
Comedian Michael Ian Black took a lot of flak for blaming the rise in school shootings on the idea that “boys are broken.”
…
What is the primary way to attack a boy’s masculinity? Strip him of his primary male role model: his father. Over the past 50 years, we have taught women to embrace single motherhood and to cut fathers out of their children’s lives through divorce. Now, thanks to the gun control echo-chamber, it will probably take another 50 years to right the wrongs we’ve done to our fathers and our boys.

Our Society’s Tragic Sickness Can’t Be Fixed With Band-Aid By Frank Miele – struggling to come to reality story where Miele doesn’t quite make it. Consider this myth promulgation:

“A few think that the answer is arming more people, so that good people will be able to defend themselves and others, but that could result in a Wild West lifestyle that few of us would embrace. It is also unlikely to deter those who are determined to kill the innocent. They will simply take more defensive measures.

There has been a significant increase in defensive concealed carry in recent years yet the “Wild West lifestyle” allegation continues to come up empty. A careful reader can detect such flaws in Miele’s essay to get around then to find the underlying message to think about:

“But none of these solutions — even the ones that are most drastic and restrictive — are going to get to the heart of what ails us. They are more like a cold remedy: They treat the symptoms but are not a cure. …

By the same token, laws can suppress or diminish violence, but they can’t cure the sickness that makes random violence such a virus in our modern society.
…
if we are going to do more than treat the symptoms, we must have the courage to look at the patient and diagnose honestly just what the sickness in our society is. That means looking at America before 1963 — before the Kennedy assassination, before the University of Texas tower shootings, before Charles Manson — and asking what has changed since then?
…
Here’s what we did in our all-too-finite wisdom: … Ended school prayer and took the Bible out of schools … Legalized abortion … Celebrated divorce and diluted marriage … Legalized street drugs and put legal drugs on the street … Promoted the trivialization of sex and violence
…
The common thread in all of these destructive changes is that they are defended as increasing our “freedom.” Of course, that was the same excuse that Satan used to tempt Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and we all know how that turned out. They were sent out from the innocence of Paradise in order to take their chances in a world full of death and despair.

The Mueller Dogs Bark, but the Caravan Moves On By Clarice Feldman – “the indictments are idiotic”

“Of course, the indictments are unlikely to result in anything, as the Russians are not going to extradite those charged, and we have no jurisdiction over those named. In any event, we do the same thing wherever we can. Just recently, then President Obama, using federal funds, worked to prevent Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election.
…
one might plausibly argue that releasing these ridiculous indictments on a Friday before a holiday to be twisted by headers in the usual mainstream media, which created so much chaos for the new administration, is part of a continuing Deep State resistance.

Why did Mueller’s indictments skip over the most obvious and pertinent statute that was violated? By Thomas Lifson – “The dog that didn’t bark.”

“John Hinderaker’s shrewd observation takes the disgrace to an entirely different level. It suggests (but does not prove) that the Mueller team is going out of its way to shield Hillary Clinton and her campaign and their henchmen at Perkins Coie, the DNC, Fusion GPS, and Christopher Steele from their own potential crimes.

Perhaps the reason why Robert Mueller did not make the announcement himself, but rather let his boss do it, is that he wanted to avoid potential questions about the statute that his indictments ignored.

The two stories, school shooting and Trump hunting are joined at the hip. Whether it’s mobs acting out or dog barking, people may be starting to notice.
