As you know if you follow me on Facebook, I was among the very first journalists to say outright that Muslims committed the terrorist attacks Wednesday.
I was actually mocked by the lesser Charles Johnson because I was right. (It must bother him that that’s becoming routine.)

It really, really bothers people that I have a really good network. I’ve also learned how the Narrative tends to lead the media astray and I tend to be really, really good at busting bogus stories. Johnson’s law number 12: nothing the media reports about guns is true.
There are actually three distinct phenomena going on with so-called “mass shootings.” It’s important to pay attention here because there’s a political strategy in deliberately conflating all three as terrorism. This is unhelpful but deliberate as the main strategy for the political left is always and everywhere political control. Here they want to take your guns even though there are more guns than there are people in the US.
The comparisons to Australia don’t quite work because well, we Americans aren’t Australians. And besides the Muslims still manage to get guns there and do their own mass killings so the claims that Australia has been mass shooting free only works if you don’t count terrorism as mass shootings. If you don’t count the mass shootings by Muslim in Australia as mass shootings why do you count them in America? Oh because you want to push gun control.
This Australia comparison on gun control aggravates the ship out of me. Australia never had America's population, Constitution or culture.

Without further ado:
1. Thug life. This is the same sort of thing you in premodern societies. Humans, like their chimp cousins, are territorial. Blacks (and some Hispanics) try to kill one another while minimizing their own casualties. The bullet count is high and typically an ambush. This is the lion share of so-called mass shootings. It won’t ever get much media play because most of the blacks killing blacks thing happens in black areas. It’s similar in some respects to what you see in ancient societies where people kill off rivals in other territories to annex that territory. Blacks are genetically predisposed to violence for all sorts of reasons that are beyond the scope of this article but which are worth studying in their own right.
To the extent the left wing media cares it’s because they either live in those black areas because they are too poor and risk being a casualty or it’s a means to take away the guns of the red necks where mass shootings are actually quite low. The left wing media very rarely has any real hands on experience with hand guns which is why one of the fastest ways to convert someone on the gun question who thinks about it theoretically is to take them shooting. This is why you almost never hear about black gang bangers killing one another until the statistic can be trivialized and used to push gun control. (I exposed the fallacy of this kind of thinking last year when I showed that Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Everytown, was deliberately manipulating gun stats.)
2. Beta male rage with a side of psychotic drugs. So long as the media continues to cover these sorts of mass killings they’ll become memes. Think of this like Randy Thornhill’s or Craig Palmer’s A Natural History of Rape: it’s a strategy for status, albeit of a perverted sort. Why do the mass killers lash out in high schools? It’s not just a gun free zone thing; it’s a young person looking for status thing. They lash out at the most vulnerable in our society — children, fellow students — because that’s the source most likely to increase their casualty count.
Usually outsiders commit these acts. That’s why you typically see immigrants (or the children of immigrants), low IQ whites, or crazies commit these style attacks. Their motives tend to be unclear even to themselves and they tend to work alone. In the age of microcelebrity brought on by Twitter and social networks you’ll always see this kind of behavior. It may even be increasing thanks to social media and the media hyping it up.
3. Jihad. Muslims doing their Muslim thing. Sometimes it’s a lone gun; oftentimes it’s a pack of them working together. Typically working in grouped or as a part of a network through their mosque or social networks, the purpose of here is massive body counts of unbelievers. Sometimes this is because the immigrant or child of immigrants feels that the unbeliever has wronged him by keeping him shut out but more often than not it is for religious motivations. Humans are tribal and we who are not Muslims aren’t in the tribe and so therefore can be killed with impunity. The Koran expressly says so.
We don’t want to talk about inbreeding and how it leads to mental illness in Muslim populations. It’s too taboo. We also don’t talk about how they are genetically different in their propensity for violence or rape even though the empirical evidence is overwhelming. We want to believe that our religious convictions are things we believe or reason about but the evidence from writers like Nicholas Wade is that religion is something that’s evolved over time. That’s why you very rarely hear about serious conversions of high status people into Islam.
To deter these Muslim terrorist acts we should stop settling Muslims in America — the costs in Homeland Security bills alone way offset the benefits of the millions that are here — confiscate or destroy the property of their family members, and ban foreign money from coming into the mosques. Why do we settle over a 100,000 Muslims a year after 9-11 when it took only 19 to kill 3000 of us?
Democrats made a huge fuss about the fictitious millions of “foreign” dollars going into the 2010 elections but curiously ignore the millions of foreign dollars going to build mosques all over America. Israel destroys the homes of suicide bombers to stop them. (Muslims care about their kin suffering.) The government uses civil asset forfeiture for family members of drug dealers & that somewhat deters drug dealing. Why don’t we do the same thing for families of terrorists?
Let the terrorist incident in #SanBernardino be your guide: whenever a Muslim coworker says Islam is a religion of peace notify your higher ups. Do not give them a baby shower.
