Students are mad that a terrorist was killed while stabbing people

You.can't.make.this.up.  Some students at THE Ohio State University protested the shooting of a terrorist who used a knife and a car to maim and injure eleven people on campus two weeks ago.  The student newspaper, The Lantern, reported Thursday:

About 25 people gathered on the Oval in front of Thompson Library Wednesday afternoon to discuss last week’s attack on OSU’s campus and read the names of people of color who have been killed by police officers in the past two months. They added Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the third-year in logistics management whose attack on campus with a car and a knife resulted in his death and about a dozen people being sent to the hospital on Nov. 28.

OSU Coalition for Black Liberation, the organization that planned the event, has been reading from the list of names since October and has added names each week. On Wednesday, it wanted to address last week’s events specifically, and the fallout it had on minority communities.
 
“We broadened the scope of what today was supposed to be, to talk about the aftermath of what happened on the 28th — to talk about what it meant for that attack to happen and also for Ohio State to be a focal point for a lot of right-wing pundits, Islamophobia and xenophobia,” said Maryam Abidi, a fourth-year in women’s, gender and sexuality studies.

The event began with the reading of a eulogy for all those who are on the list, a reading of the individuals’ names, ages and the location of their death, followed by a moment of silence. 

In some cases, the deceased may have committed acts of violence against others before they were killed. Perhaps they were domestic abusers, perhaps they threatened or killed others. This possibility is not something to shy away from. The protest against police brutality extends to the innocent and the guilty alike, because we know that no matter the crime, justice and due process don’t come from a cop’s bullet,” Abidi said while reading the eulogy.

Among the names on the list was Artan. Those in attendance said they did not condone his actions, but some said they have compassion for the attacker, who expressed feelings of anxiety related to how he was perceived as a Muslim.... Rest of article 

Perhaps the next time a terrorist goes on to the rampage, these people should stand up for what they believe in and  offer themselves as sacrifices.  Some people simply aren't worth defending when they are in harm's way.

So how about this...these SJWs can help us in the military/law enforcement re-write the ROEs/force continuum if, AND ONLY IF, they agree to a two-year tour as either a police officer or in the armed forces. My guess is that most of these pansies wouldn't be able to pass the PFT or drug test. I'm tired of pajama boys who have never had to defend themselves, much less anybody else calling into question the actions of an officer who most probably saved several lives in Ohio. And by the way, calling these social justice warriors, "warriors" is an insult to those of us who have actually earned that title. OORAH!

This country has very few college presidents with any backbone. They are there for the money. It's time to make America Great Again. I wonder how pieces of shit like that get to go to college. I paid full price for my 3 kids.

Let's keep this in perspective. I expect that 99.9% of the OSU students were not unhappy about the outcome.

I am beginning to understand why there are so many people coming out of college with a degree flipping burgers. Who else would hire people like this?

Anonymous said...

doesn't OSU have about 60,000 students? So this tiny, tiny group of wingnuts gather to make naïve, ridiculous statements and some media arm decides that is "news"? give me a break. EVERY college and university will have at a least a few people that are mentally very different for different reasons. in the 1960's Ole Miss had a tenured professor that fervently believed beings from Venus were wandering around Oxford. It didn't bring down the school; in fact, he was amusing and entertaining, but hardly "newsworthy".

Understand the sentiment of folks that think this is stupid. It is. But - OSU has over 60,000 students; this is said to be the result of 25 kids that gathered together to express their opinion. Hell, we have a higher (percentage) ratio of that of stupid folks who come to City Hall weekly to hear Brother Enoch.

Damm isn't this the USA, even the .001% have a right to their opinions. I have a bigger problem with a President elect who thinks it's okay to delegate our country's security to his second in command while he produces a TV show in his spare time. That's more important to me and it should be more important to you, unless you are blind.

I would've rather the guy was captured & interrogated - but cops today have a one-size-fits-all solution: shoot to kill. You'd think a guy with a knife coulda been tased.

Still, glad the harm this nutjob did was limited, & better him dead than any of his victims.

3:37 - I realize that you might have trouble understanding, reading, and keeping up if it is regular size type - smaller than the Dick and Jane books you are used to reading - but Trump is not going to be spending any time producing a TV show. Read the news; listen to damn near any cable channel of your choice, and you would have heard this. But damn those facts they get in the way of a good storyline.

But even if he did want to produce a TV show, would that be a worse use of his so-called spare time than the hundreds of golf games or the multi-week long family vacations of the outgoing POTUS?

Ha 4:20, you will stump to Trump's level, by criticizing anyone who disagrees,
sadly I am not surprised. You will be one of those that goes down with the Trumptanic. I just hope we don't have to incarcerate you and your ilk.

4:14 is ignorant of how these kind of situations work, a knife is a murder weapon, and the threat actor just tried to kill several people with his car. The officer acted accordingly and within the law. I love it when people decide to chime in on matters they know nothing about.

Something is up, Christe and Rudy are walking away...their reputations are already tarnished. I am going to guess that their PR people are telling them to get out before it's too late.

4:20 so he let his former campaign manager float this idea that it would be OK for him to promote a TV show...that he had no intention of promoting. Yeah right, he had her float the Ballon because he really taught it would be okay. Don't be naive!! And stop listening to Talk Radio! !!

The sad fact is that the same idiots that are complaining about the knife-wielding criminal being shot, and killed, would complain just as loudly if the knife-wielding criminal was NOT shot and killed. Idiots got to be idiots.
As for the SJW @ 3:57 -fuck off. Next time you need help, don't call LEO.

Fortunately even Republicans are concerned that Russia has influenced the election, Trump is so conceited that he is willing to ignore this fact. Or does he know they did...Tillerson is a good friend of Russia..just think about that.

and I seem to remember that when anyone raised the possibility that Hillary's server might get hacked, he was told to shut up. There were reasons why there were rules against Hillary doing what she did but hey, its St. Hillary. But of course, feel free to have it both ways.

She lost because she was an extremely flawed candidate. Crooked as hell, Lies coming so easily it was breathtaking. Most people didn't like her, didn't trust her, didn't want her in power.
You lost. Deal with it. Find your safe place and play with your coloring books and play-doh.

I remember when Democrats and liberals in the U.S. reflexively took Russia's side in any international dispute.

Of course, that was when Russia was old school communist.

Democrats were for the other team in the Cold War. Democrats romanticized and mourned Che, Chavez and Castro. But now they hate Russia.

The irony. It's yummy.

There is evidence that the election was hacked (Pondesta/DNC emails) to favor Trump. Where is the evidence that Sec. Clinton Emails were hacked... Should the Electoral College be briefed on these developments?? Trump doesn't want that especially since he was beaten by over 2million votes.

And the world loses another LOGISTICS MANAGER, and as we all know we need more of them and of course community organinisers.

No, she lost because Putin was afraid of her and he knows that he can control Trump, it's already evident...his best friend is going to be Sec of State, if we don't put a stop to it.Thank God for McCain, Graham Et El., They understand what's at stake here.

7:37 Since you have not studied a course in government or read the constitution of the United States. In a constitutional republic it matters not that all if 4 million plus voters in California voted for Hillary
the only votes that count will be when the Electoral votes are counted. Hacking the DNC only showed that the DNC worked to subvert the will of the democrat party voters to elect a candidate for the general election that was unable or unwilling to address the concerns of the people.

Don't get your panties in a bunch over this. It's a college campus. A very big college campus and there are all kinds of flaky
people with all kinds of whacked-out ideas running around. It's not the real world and it's not supposed to be. It's a place where all things are considered and people can discuss freely even the most offensive perspectives. Hopefully they won't limit their consideration to just liberal ideas. After that, comes the real world.

The whole Russia hacked our voting machines is fake news. Obama and Zuckerberg are fighting fake news, where were they when Hillary was selling "the Benghazi attack happened because of a video"????

Jesus people get it together. Once again, liberals on one side crying that Russia stole Hillary's fake emails/hacked the voting machines/made Hillary call half of the US deplorable/prevented her from campaigning in key states/ etc. etc. We get it. Too bad the same CIA that is still looking for Saddam's WMD's in Iraq can't provide any evidence, get their 12-person team to even agree on this conclusion, or get the support of the 17 other intelligence agencies including the FBI, who says it's bs.

Too bad CNN told you all that it was illegal to read wikileaks, you might have learned something.

On the other side we have the establishment Republicans, who are so offended by Trump's tan they forget that the US has interferred in Russian elections as well as the UK referendum PLENTY. Instead of acting like little Marco, Republicans should be thanking Russia. Russia is our ALLY and is fighting ISIS in Syria - remember that thing we were supposed to be doing in the Middle East? For the past 15 years? Or are we just going to change the name of radical Islam every ten years and just hope no one notices that this war seems to have no end in sight?

Oh, and btw Obama, how did announcing we were going to attack Mosul a week in advance work out for ya?

The bottom line is that there is no way we can fight a nuclear war with Russia! Hillary already sold them all the plutonium! It's laughable to think they would be afraid of her - a drunken crony in ill health who can't even manage her own campaign?? She's so pathetic the DNC had to rig their own primaries! Not only that, we are supposed to fight Russia with our southern border wide open while at the same time beat ISIS in the Middle East? And at the same time we are supposed to improve infrastructure and our healthcare system? LOLOLOLOLOL.

Trump has a great plan. We are going to build the wall, and we are going to make Mexico (and other foreign countries) pay for it. We are going to put a huge tax on the 120 billion being wired to foreign countries by illegals every year. We are going to jack up that trade tariff and start buying American. Cars are about to get very expensive - oh well. We are going to build ships to stop smugglers coming into our country and protect our coastlines. We are going to stop buying Mexican drugs and start growing our own. We are going to stop giving sweetheart deals to Obama's friends at Boeing so they stop charging us $700 a hammer and then turn around and give all their investment profits to Iran so they can build fighter jets.

If you are confused, then it's likely you've been listening to fake news. Believe it or not we all have the capacity in us to do our own fact checking instead of relying on mainstream media to tell us what our opinion is.

Instead of people complaining how Russia interfered in our election they should be thanking them for letting the people of the U.S. know about a criminal that was in the running for president. We should be complaining about a president who tried to cover up the criminal acts of Hillary. They should be complaining about the DNC for their crooked dealings getting Hillary the democratic nomination.
If Russia did really try to interrupt our presidential election we should be thanking them. They did something our own govt. should have done.

4:20 said...

5:09. Wrong as wrong can be. I'm far from being a Trumpote. Didnt vote for the man or support him. But I also can think freely enough that I don't get bent out of shape over petty crap or people who look for crap to bitch about.

Didn't support Hillary either -can't support a crook. But if she had won, I would well be attacking her for many of her actions, but not for the pants suit she chose to wear or the time she wasted at a beauty salon.

That proves it, you guys will let the Russians run this country, Trump is siding with them over our own intelligence professionals. Republican leaders in the house and Senate know better. But if they looked the other way, it would be okay with you guys.

1:37 Run this country the way we tried to run the European referendum and the Middle East and failed spectacularly? Last I checked, if it wasn't for Russia, we'd all be German right now! If Russia interfered with the election, which there is no proof of, I would personally thank them for saving the United States from the globalist agenda! Soros is banned there for a reason, and if I were Trump I would DEFINITELY side with them over our own intelligence. We know Bush had EPICALLY bad intel - we're still looking for those WMD's, and if Obama has good intel, why are we still fighting the same war eight years later? You know, the one against those kids who live in caves and are using our own thirty-year-old weapons against us? Does Obama WANT to beat them?? Or does he want Boeing to INVEST in them? I can't tell the difference anymore. Want to know who hacked the DNC? Their names were Seth Rich and Kim Dotcom. There is more evidence tying the hacks to Seth Rich than the CIA will ever find on Russia and Kim Dotcom wants to take credit so bad he can't stand it!

Where did these guys who will blindly follow Putin Jr.come from? It's becoming more and more obvious that Trump will never finish his term, he will either be impeached for treason or he will resign to save his skin. He caused Lockheed to lose $4billion with a tweet that contradicts his own stand on beefing up our defense. His childish need to jump on social media without knowing the facts should show you guys that the emporor doesn't have fully developed brain,much less clothes.

3:34 has never worked on a govt. contract, if he has ever actually worked at all. Every govt. contract could be cut by 75% and the company with the contract would still be making money. The govt. pays a contractor every time they make a mistake then pays them again for correcting the mistake they made in the first place. This results in the contractor making more mistakes just to be paid more to correct them.

I'm so tired of you people saying "complain to the DNC". There is no tangible DNC right now. It imploded upon itself when Hillary got the nomination. That's why Donald won. The Bernie people either didn't vote OR voted for Trump.
In America right now, the Democrats are in disarray from the cluster f**k that just happened, and the Republicans are trying to figure out how to deal with Trump, the cluster f**k that keeps on giving.

Unless you are a go zillionaire, then you aren't in any way "winning". If you are a Federal Office Holder of any stripe, I feel sorry for you.

This isn't good for anyone. It's good for the Media because they have a constant shit show--that's about it. Oh and our enemies.

There are just over 66,000 students at OSU. 25 people would be LESS THAN one half of one percent of one percent - in other words, half of one-thousandth of the student body. And you're right: the other 99.995% probably think the Perp had it coming, and are GLAD he's dead.

Somebody said 'there is evidence that Russia hacked and influenced our election'. But they failed to produce any. Probably because you can't post a link to something that's only speculative and wishing.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
