A Truly Moronic Liberal

El Capitan over at the Baboon Pirates blog has an article about a recent school shooting incident. The following is from a math teacher at Brockton High School. It was published at Boston.com:

I am a math teacher at Brockton High School, the site of a school shooting earlier this month.

Current school security procedures lock down school populations in the event of armed assault. Some advocate abandoning this practice as it holds everyone in place, allowing a shooter easily to find victims.

An alternative to lockdown is immediate exodus via announcement. Although this removes potential hostages and makes it nearly impossible for the shooter to acquire preselected targets, it unfairly rewards resourceful children who move to safety off-site more shrewdly and efficiently than others.

Schools should level playing fields, not intrinsically reward those more resourceful. A level barrel is fair to all fish.

Some propose overturning laws that made schools gun-free zones even for teachers who may be licensed to securely carry concealed firearms elsewhere. They argue that barring licensed-carry only ensures a defenseless, target-rich environment.

But as a progressive, I would sooner lay my child to rest than succumb to the belief that the use of a gun for self-defense is somehow not in itself a gun crime.

[emphasis mine]

Two things here. The first is that only a true moron would rather bury his children (or any loved one) rather than defend them. This kind of person, one who will not defend himself of his family, by any means necessary, is the lowest form of life. It is the kind of person who stands around in times of trouble waiting for someone else to fix the problem. This is the kind of person who is devastated by a Hurricane Katrina and stands knee deep in water, yards from dry land, looking for someone to help.

There is no lower form of man than one who will not defend his children. You can extrapolate a lot from what he said. He could just have easily stated, I would rather watch my wife or daughter get raped rather than shoot the attacker. I would rather see my son get sodomized rather than shoot his attacker.

The term self-defense in and of itself means that it is not a crime regardless of what one uses for defense. All people are entitled to the right of self-defense.

All people except those whose only claim to being a man is the Y chromosome.

The second problem is that this twit is teaching children. Who wants their children taught by such a weak and unmanly person? This is the kind of person who has a lot to do with forming the minds and thoughts of the youth in this country. His article will be seen by many children and he will be asked about it. How will he justify to them the cowardice he demonstrates in the piece?

Will his position encourage impressionable children into believing that even the lives of their loved ones are not worth protecting if one has to use a firearm to do it?

If you are a criminal up in this area you might want to visit this guy’s house. You already know he will not offer resistance no matter what you do.

He would rather bury his children than protect them.

What kind of cowards are we producing these days?

    Superb rant, as usual. Sorry for not being around very often, but it warms my heart to see you haven’t lost it at all. :)

      I appreciate it when you get the chance to stop by. I am still working on the fight but it gets more difficult each day as we find more people who pull down their pants and back into the room of government.

      When people learn that government is supposed to get its power from the people and not the other way around we might actually make progress.

      But the gimme mentality is there, the jealousy, the “oh woe is me it is unfair” attitude.

      No one owes anyone anything, life is not fair and no one has a right to the property of others.

      We have an uphill battle but we will get there.

    Imagine that. Someone who agrees with Jesus! If there’s one person conservatives secretly love to hate, it’s Jesus and his “let he who is without sin cast the first stone” (Jn. 8:7) and “Do not resist evil” (Mt. 5:39) nonsense. It is moronic. Good call.

      Not sure conservatives secretly (or overtly) love to hate Jesus. I am certain that I do not see how it fits with this post but I do know that any person who would allow his children to be murdered rather than use a firearm to protect them is a coward, the lowest form of man and should be banished from a free society.

        That’s not what the teacher said. He said he did not want to succumb to the belief that using a gun for self-defense is not a crime. But that still leave open the possibility that he could believe that defending oneself with a gun is not itself a good thing, but it is the lesser of two evils–which is what most people probably believe. Of course, Jesus was against self-defense. See the above quotations as well as the Matthew 5:39 and Luke 6:29 about turning the other cheek. Heck, Jesus was even against preventing people from stealing from you. Luke 6:29-30: “If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.” The point is, many, if not most, conservatives are evangelical Christians, and they are hypocritical in their support of the pacifist Jesus while at the same time endorsing the use of guns. If this teacher was a moronic lunatic, then so was Jesus.

          Jesus said to turn the other cheek but you only have two of them. I also note that Jesus said for us to obey the laws of those governing us.

          I think you are incorrect in your assessment. I notice you are from Darrel’s group. If you have come here to bombard me with your anti religious BS or the other crap Darrel spews then stay away from here. I tolerate Darrel but want no more of you cut and paste drones visiting here with your “holier” than thou attitudes and disdain for the beliefs of others.

          Am I clear on that or do you need specific instructions?

          The teacher is a moron. I don’t think Jesus would want you to sacrifice your kids. But believe what you want. Just don’t start coming here with your Darrel attitude. You guys have your own site to play at.

          Luke 22:36: “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

          “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:14).

          And the turning the other cheek was probably a metaphor for an insult.

          The backdrop to this teaching is that the Jews considered it an insult to be hit in the face, much in the same way that we would interpret someone spitting in our face. Bible scholar R. C. Sproul comments: “What’s interesting in the expression is that Jesus specifically mentions the right side of the face [Matthew 5:39]….If I hit you on your right cheek, the most normal way would be if I did it with the back of my right hand….To the best of our knowledge of the Hebrew language, that expression is a Jewish idiom that describes an insult, similar to the way challenges to duels in the days of King Arthur were made by a backhand slap to the right cheek of your opponent.”

          The principle taught in the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:38-42 would thus seem to be that Christians should not retaliate when insulted or slandered (see also Romans 12:17-21). Such insults do not threaten a Christian’s personal safety. The question of rendering insult for insult, however, is a far cry from defending oneself against a mugger or a rapist.
