Somebody please bring the grown ups back!!!
By now you’ve heard the tragic news of the mass shooting that occurred in Ft. Hood Army Base in Texas. As of this writing there are twelve confirmed dead and thirty wounded, including a number of civilians. Officials have in custody Major Malik Nadal Hasan who was himself wounded as he attacking some of America’s finest. Fox News reports:
A military doctor who reportedly feared an impending war deployment is in custody as the sole suspect in a shooting rampage at the Army’s Fort Hood that left 12 dead and at least 30 wounded, an Army official said Thursday night.
The news that the suspect, Major Malik Nadal Hasan, was alive and in stable condition, came as a sudden reversal of early reports that the gunman was among the dead.
Two other soldiers who were taken into custody as possible suspects were released Lt. Gen. Bob Cone told reporters Thursday evening.
A female first responder who shot at Hasan and was previously thought to be dead, was also alive, Cone said.
Federal law enforcement officials say Hasan had come to their attention at least six months ago because of Internet postings that discussed suicide bombings and other threats.
Cone said the injuries “vary significantly” among the victims wounded in the shooting. The victims include one civilian police officer.
The shooter’s cousin, Nader Hasan, told Fox News that their family is in shock.
“We are trying to make sense of all this,” Nader Hasan said. “He wasn’t even someone who enjoyed going to the firing range.”
He said his cousin, who was born and raised in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech University, turned against the wars after hearing the stories of those who came back from Afghanistan and Iraq.
Nader Hasan said his cousin, who was raised a Muslim, wanted to go into the military against his parent’s wishes — but was taunted by others after the terror attacks of Sept. 11.
He now is believed to have been behind the worst mass shooting at a U.S. military base in history.
We know he is a Muslim, but of course the media wants to make nice and doesn’t want to ruffle any feathers although I’m quite sure if the guy had been remotely Christian they would not have hesitated to mention it or have talking heads on discussing the resurgence of right wing extremism due to racism or something. As it is, the PC police are unwilling to note the obvious connections and raise the right questions. Even more disturbing than this however is the altogether frivolous and immature way our so-called president responded:
You know, the proper time for shout-outs is at concerts, basketball games, and when you win the academy awards, not when you’re about to comment on the massacre of American servicemen by a loony Muslim extremist on our own soil!!!
Didn’t know that service man was a Muslim. Yeah, I don’t think that was the right time for a “shout out”.

I’m beginning to think Obama is a sociopath. The completely inappropriate response is pretty damning to someone with normal emotions and a healthy sense of right v wrong.
OBAMA PLAYS “THE DOZENS” AT FORT HOOD MASSACRE ADDRESS (But at least he shows some compassion.)
Obama: I want to thank everyone for this wonderful conference and I want to send a shout out to that Congressional Medal of Honor winner
Joe Medicine Crow. Stand up Joe. There he is, let me tell you all, me and Joe have been good friends for a long time. I knew Joe when he was on the wagon, and I new Joe when he fell off the wagon, but unfortunately he fell right into a box of whiskey. (Laughs to himself) Joe say a few words.
Joe Medicine Crow: Thanks Barry, but if I am Joe Medicine Crow then you must be Barry Socialized Medicine Crow. (Crowd laughter).
Obama: No Joe, but that’s what the Republicans call Pelosi “Nancy Old Socialized Medicine Crow”. (Laughs to himself)
Joe Medicine Crow: Don’t forget Barry I’ve known you for many moons. I remember when you fell off the wagon too. Unfortunately you fell into a big box of yourself. (Crowd laughter).
Obama: Joe you’re always the kidder.
Joe Medicine Crow: Yeh, I remember you had to use a stick to try to get some of the shit off you. (Crowd laughter).
Obama: Oh I see you want to play the Dozens, OK Joe well, yo Indian mama’s so fat, when she hauls ass, she has to make two trips.
Joe Medicine Crow: Yo white mamma’s so fat, when the medicine man diagnosed her with the flesh eating disease; he gave her 5 years to live.
Obama: Oh it’s on. Yo Indian mamma’s so fat, her ass has its own congressman.
Joe Medicine Crow: Yo white mama’so fat and old that when the Great Spirit said “Let there be Light”, he told her to move her fat ass out of the way.
Obama: Yo Indian mama’s so ugly, her mom had to be drunk to breastfeed her.
Joe Medicine Crow: Yo white mama’s so ugly, I took her to a haunted house and she came out with a job application.
Obama: Yo Indiana mama’s so ugly, people go as her for Halloween.
Joe Medicine Crow: Yo father so ugly it’s a good thing you never saw him.
Obama: Damn Joe that hurt. By the way there was a massacre at Fort Hood. That’s too bad. I got to go now….
Obama is just a narcissist with no leadership skills what so ever. It’s unbelievable that he could possibly make President Bush look like a good leader, but I admit it, he has. While Obama is giving his shout out and telling us all not leap to conclusions or be upset with Muslims or anything, President Bush and Laura are down visiting the families and wounded at Ft Hood.
As to the media wanting to make nice, yes it’s startling. Look at what the British press is digging up in the meantime:
Major Nidal Malik Hasan worshipped at a mosque led by a radical imam said to be a “spiritual adviser” to three of the hijackers who attacked America on Sept 11, 2001
where did you hear that Bush was down visiting the families? That’s interesting news.
