The Rwanda-Syndrome:

Standard

Author’s-Note:

Allah says in The Qur’ān, “And, don’t allow your Hatred, against any People, prevent you from behaving justly.”.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.8, V.5)

Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said that Allah said, “Oh, My Servants!!! Verily, I’ve made Oppressed Forbidden even upon Myself, as well as between you. So, do not oppress one another.”.(an-Nawawī)

In light of so many Events around our Planet, detailing the constant & consistent Oppression of People, whom are Desperate to be heard, to be listened to, to be helped-Sadly, much like the Carnage which took place during the infamous Rwanda-Conflict, in 1994, C.E., there’s seems to be absolutely zero Change, in terms of how the International-Community chooses to respond to Conflicts which yield levels of Destruction which can’t be defined in any ways other than: Inhumane, Genocidal, etc. And, you’d think that the World would’ve learned from the Errors of Rwanda, as the Nations of our World just stood by and made us watch in agony while they did nothing, as nearly a Million Human-Beings, along with countless other Thousands were: tortured, maimed, raped, murdered, starved-out all in the name of Power & Domination over the Other.(For more Information concerning International-Genocide: http://www.genocidewatch.com)

Ever since the 1990’s, C.E.: there’ve several Nations which have become war-torn, in which untold Millions of Human-Beings have become the subject of Theft, Rape, Murder, etc. With these blatant acts of Genocide being witness before our very eyes, we’ve stayed glued to our Social-Media tools of Communication & Observance, (TV, the News, the Internet, YouTube, etc.) to remain “Aware” of what’s happening. However, unfortunately, that’s largely all we’ve done as a Society is just sit-back and watch, as Multitudes of People just like us: Humans perpetually suffer unjustly. It’s almost as though we’ve become so used to Carnage, that it’s now just another form of Entertainment.

Also, it seems as though the “International-Community” conveniently waits for Conflicts to get at their worsts, before anything substantial is actually done, in order to significantly dispel Oppression around the World. For example: for those of us old enough to remember, the Conflict in Rwanda from beginning to ending was nothing short of the many things which were imposed upon Human-Beings during the Reign of the 3rd-Reich during the WWII-Era (1939-1945, C.E.). The World said “Never Again”, pertaining to the World’s-Nations sitting on the Sidelines as the International “Bullies of da Block” push People around. But, the World hasn’t kept its Word, to maintain Justice for Oppressed-Peoples around the Globe.

Just like what occurred within Rwanda, there’ve been a string of International-Conflicts, either caused by Religious, Ethnic strife between Peoples of the same Nation or imposed upon them by Bullies whom profess to be the Defenders of Freedom…Justice…Equality.

Let’s take a look at some examples of the Rwanda-Syndrome:

 

  1. Somalia

 

  1. Afghanistan

 

  1. Iraq

 

  1. Syria

 

  1. Libya

 

  1. Mali

 

  1. Sudan

 

  1. Nigeria

 

  1. Central African Republic

 

  1. Burma/Myanmar

 

  1. Palestine/Israel

 

  1. Yemen

 

For Decades, Nations such as these have been torn apart by Conflict, both internally amongst themselves, as well as the Conflicts being catalyzed, arguably even promoted via Western-Colonization, Western-Influence, etc. Whatever the Reason doesn’t really matter. What matters is the fact that these listed Nations have been struck with Conflicts which have completely either broken-down their entire Societies or has left Millions Dead, Maimed, Raped, Displaced/Homeless, Starving, Diseased, and yet there’s been little to nothing done to concretely put an end to the Oppression the Innocents of these Countries are forced to face. Which comes back to my Point, regarding us being self-victimized by the Rwanda-Syndrome: as a Globally-Connected Society, one would think/assume that there’d greater Efforts by the International-Community to resolve such Conflicts. But, this is clearly yet to be seen.

My Question is this though: how many more People have to actually succumb to these types of Atrocities, before we actually get it, that these are Human-Beings who don’t deserve to be treated like this?!!!

The Muslim-Community’s Dilemma concerning the Issue of Abortion

Standard

Author’s-Note:

I’ve written this, as a Result of an Article which I’ve read, concerning a Muslim-Woman who made the Decision to have an Abortion.(http://www.thetempest.co/2017/08/25/life-love/love-sex/muslim-had-abortion/) The story actually is not Uncommon, yet Powerful none the less. This Article is indicative of how Broken so many Muslims in our Communities are, as well as how our Muslim-Communities are either too Apathetic, too Preoccupied, too Judgmental, to truly be of Help & Service to marginalized Demographics, who have to make Difficult, Life-Changing, Decisions.

Contrary to Popular-Opinion: Muslims do not see Eye2Eye pertaining to this Issue, for a lot of Reasons: Conservatism vs. Liberalism, Women’s-Liberation, Feminism, Female-Autonomy, Reproductive-Rights, Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice, etc. As Muslims, however, we must be prepared to journey with/walk with anyone/everyone whom has either had to make a Decision involving Abortion, or is right now as we speak in the process of having to make a Decision concerning Abortion.

As far as I’ve been able to research, there’s 3-Types of Abortions:

1. Resulting from Sexual-Assault (Incest, Rape, etc.).

2. Resulting from a Medical-Necessity (Health/Life Threatening).

3. Resulting from: a. A Woman choosing to do it because she doesn’t want Children/additional Children (Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.17, V.33)…b. A Woman who rationalizes that because she’s not in a Socio-Economic Space/Place she wants/needs to be in to be a Responsible-Parent (Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.6, V.151)…c. A Woman who wants to rid her Life of the Responsibility of a Child resulting from the Personal-Actions of both her & her Sexual Partner/Partners (Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.17, V32) and/or her Partner, her Family/Community, etc. putting pressure on her to proceed with it.

Islām has a Maqsid/Mantra, among the many Maqāsid/Mantras of ash-Sharī`ah/Islāmic-Law…among them being the Maqsid of the Preservation of Life: every Human-Being has the Right to live, even prior to Conception/Birth, even if they grow-up to be a Tyrant.(Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.5, V.32)

According to the Sharī`ah, Mahrūmāt/Prohibited-Actions fall under 3-Categories:

1. Reprehensible & Punishable (Punishable either in the Hereafter, in the Mundane, or both).

2. Reprehensible but not Punishable.

3. Neither Reprehensible nor Punishable.

Now, the Challenge is objectively placing each Type of Abortion into each Category of Mahrūmāt…here it goes:

a. Abortion Type-1…Category-2

b. Abortion Type-2…Category-3

c. Abortion Type-3…Category-1

As per our Collective-Responsibility as Muslims: we mustn’t/shouldn’t attempt to pursuade anyone to make any Decision…they have Freewill for a Reason, and their Decision will be held into Account by Allah, not us.

I know that it’s easy to say, “it’s Harām/Forbidden”, when you’re not in another Person’s Shoes, who has to decide whether or not an Unborn Human-Being lives or dies. Spiritual/Psycho-Emotional Breakdown is a Real-Thing. Now, I’m just as Pro-Life is anyone else. At the same Time, it behooves us, as Muslims to be more Empathetic to Issues like this. Also, the Cycle of Abuse is a Real-Thing as well. When People witness Trauma (Domestic-Abuse for example), they Spiritually/Psycho-Emotionally accept it as Normal-Behavior when it’s not What had been mentioned in this Article, concerning this Muslim-Woman’s Struggle to find herself, in the midst of not being healed from her Childhood-Trauma, which had led to her escapades with a Man she wasn’t married to is Reality for countless Muslim-Women, which the Muslim-Community fails constantly to both address & remedy. And, let’s be Honest here: among Muslims generally, Women are ostracized significantly more for having Bastard-Children (Children conceived via Non-Wedlock), as opposed to Men having Bastard-Children. So, the Pressure surrounding this Muslim-Woman as per mothering a Bastard-Child isn’t at all false or exaggerated.

Our Maslahah/Objective, particularly pertaining to this Issue is to maitain the Mantra of R.E.P. (R.espect…E.mpathy…P.atience) at all Times. We’re dealing with Real-People, who’re dealing with Real-Issues just like this everyday. Now, I’m going to anticipate that least 1,000-People are going to disagree with what I’ve presented. But, then again: that’s what having these Types of Conversations are all about…Dialogue…Solutions.

Evolution is White-Supremacy & White-Supremacy is Kufr/Disbelief:

Standard
Evolution is White-Supremacy & White-Supremacy is Kufr/Disbelief:

IMG_20170819_082950_735For anyone/everyone who’s ever studied Biology: Science of Life/Living, you know fully well that Evolution, specifically Darwinian-Evolution/Darwinism is the Leading-Agenda pontificated within the Scientific-Community. And, it’s absolutely no Accident that the Scientific-Community is dominated by Atheists/Anti-Theists, White-Supremacists, etc., thanks to Charles Darwin authoring “The Origin Of Species”: his Work concerning Evolution. Evolution directly supports/co-signs this Pathological-Ideology, that in spite of the Claim that Human-Life didn’t begin in Europe, even according to Evolutionists, somehow Europeans “evolved” to become Superior to any/all Non-European Peoples, because the only Reason why the Claim that Human-Life began in Africa is even pontificated within Evolution/Darwinism is because, according to Evolution/Darwinism: African-Peoples evolved from Primates, and then all other Peoples evolved from African-Peoples. And, this is fueled by the Disbelief in Allah: a Divine-Creator who created all Human-Beings on equal Spiritual & Intellectual footing.

Circumcision vs. Mutilation: is there a Difference between the two?!!!

Standard

Circumcision in Islām is of 2-Types:

1. Male-Circumcision-

Male-Circumcision consists of removing the Male-Prepuce/Foreskin, exposing the Head of the Penis.

2. Female-Circumcision-

Female-Circumcision consists of partial or complete removal of the Female-Prepuce/Clitoral-Hood, exposing the Clitoris.

Both Types of Circumcision are known to possess Precedent within Islām via the Qur’ān&Sunnah.(al-Bukhārī, Muslim) Circumcision is not Mutilation of the Human-Body, as Anti-Circumcision Advocates dishonestly propagate to be the Case, simply because Islām never textually condones Mutilation of the Human-Body in any way. Also, Circumcision isn’t some Archaic (many would even dare to argue “Barbaric”) 3rd-World Custom, as many would attempt to classify it as such. Rather, the Islāmic-Origins of Circumcision actually begin when Allah commanded Abraham (Peace be upon him) to establish Circumcision: to circumcise himself, along with all Male-Members of his Household.(Qasas-ul-Anbiyā’/Stories Of The Prophets, ibn-Kathīr) And, thus proving that Circumcision not only predates the Revelation of the Qur’ān, but that it also is predicated by Revelation which Allah imposed upon Abraham: the Friend of Allah…the Father of the Prophets.

20170802_183837

Since this Discussion is particular to Female-Circumcision: it must be noted that the Islāmic-Allowance of Female-Circumcision is in no way akin to Female Genital Mutilation, because of what I’ve already mentioned prior, pertaining to Islām never condoning Mutilation of the Human-Body & by virtue of the fact that there’s no Islāmic-Texts stating that Female-Circumcision is Mafrūdh/Mandatory.

Rather, Female-Circumcision is something which is Mubāh (Neutral/Optional), as is proven within the following Text:

20170802_183814

Now, based upon this particular Hadīth/Prophetic-Narration, it’s Clear that Muhammad (Peace be upon him) never mandated nor abolished Female-Circumcision, yet only advised/warned, commanded that it must not be done in an Extreme-Fashion. Based upon what we know concerning FGM, it’s obvious that this is the Extreme-Fashion in which Muhammad set out to avoid & forbade from taking place.

There’s very blatant differences between Female-Circumcision, which is Islāmically-Acceptable vs. FGM, which is Mahrūm/Islāmically-Prohibited, by virtue of the Harm which is caused by it. In fact, in Islām, we as Muslims are commanded to avoid Harm at any/all Costs. (Noble-Qur’ān: Chpt.2, V.195; an-Nawawī)

The following Diagram proves my Point:

20170802_183756

Let’s review the above Diagram (B.  Type I [A. Prepuce removal only]): it paints a Clear-Picture, that B. Type I (A.Prepuce removal only) is the only Islāmically-Acceptable form of Female-Circumcision, and therefore could never be FGM. The other Figures  within this Diagram clearly describe/define that these other Types are not Circumcision; rather, these are Types of Mutilation/FGM. In the Modern-World: I must agree that most Places Worldwide where Female-Circumcision takes place don’t use proper Medical-Technology, nor Sanitary/Hygienic Tools and/or Facilities to conduct Female-Circumcision correctly, according to Islām. So, under these Conditions, coupled with the Reality that Female-Circumcision isn’t Islāmically-Mandatory anyway, I do advocate that Female-Circumcision generally should/must be discontinued in Places where there’s no proper Facilitation that Female-Circumcision: 1. Won’t be done correctly, according to Islām…2. Could/would result in Dangerous/Life-Threatening Health-Risks for Women. And, unfortunately, there’s enough Evidence that Female-Circumcision (1. Based upon Unhealthy-Methods of it being done…2. Dangerous/Life-Threatening Health-Risks) should/must be discontinued.

In Islām, if something isn’t Obligatory: if there’s a higher Probability that Muslims won’t be able to maintain it and/or do it correctly, not only is it Islāmically-Allowable to discontinue it (depending on what it is), it would also then be Islāmically-Mandatory to discontinue it, if the Harm resulting from it becomes greater than its Benefit.

The following Hadīth gives us Precedent, as to the Islāmic-Allowability to discontinue something which is not Mafrūdh:20170802_183904In Conclusion, let 1-Thing remain Crystal-Clear: Female-Circumcision is in no Way akin to Female Genital Mutilation. So, do not…I repeat, do not continue to allow Ignorant/Islāmophobic (Muslims and/or Non-Muslims) People attempt to treat Circumcision and FGM as though they’re the same Things, because they’re clearly not akin to one another at all. And, stop allowing them to promote this Fallacy that FGM is supported by Islām.

The Transgender Non-Discloser Phenomenon: the Rise of Socio-Acceptable Covert Rape-Culture

Standard

Author’s-Note:

This Transgender Non-Discloser Trending-Phenomenon is a Socio-Sexual Issue which we all need to take very Seriously!!!

There’s this huge Agenda-Push to get our Modern-Society to buy into acceptance of Homosexuality, Transgenderism specifically as Normal, Natural, etc., although ironically, a Transgender-Person is just as Artificial as GMO-Foods. This is becoming so strong of an Agenda, that there’s Transgender-Advocates speaking, writing, protesting, lobbying, etc. that Transgenders shouldn’t even be mandated to disclose their Birth/True Genders to Heterosexual-Persons whom they pursue sexually. I don’t know about anyone else & can’t speak for anyone else. However, the Legalized-Allowance of Transgender Non-Discloser is: 1. Deceptive/Dishonest…2. Sinister/Evil…3. Dangerous. By doing this: not only are the Transgender-Demographic more likely to be in danger of Discrimiation, Abuse, Death, etc. But, also, it sends a very Disgusting & Disturbing Message, that a Homosexual/Transgender Person has the Right to deceptively impose a Sexual-Preference/Sexual-Life-Style upon Heterosexual-Persons, which they don’t want. What’s happening really is that the Homosexual/Transgerder Demographic is now being given the Green-Light to actively engage, with support from the Advocates & Allies, to manifest Covert Rape-Culture…I’ll expkain what Covert Rape-Culture is.

I find it truly Sad & Ironic, that our Modern-Society is being pressured to accept #Homosexuality & #Transgenderism so much, that People are now advocating that Homosexuals whom are Transgender don’t even have to disclose, to a Heterosexual-Person they’re pursuing, their Birth/True #Gender, as to say that it’s not a Heterosexual-Person’s Business to know the Birth/True Gender of the Person hitting on them. This is both Disgusting & Disturbing. Our Modern-Society is basically being pressured to allow Transgender-People to manifest Covert Rape-Culture.

To Homosexual/Transgender Persons, Advocates, etc. who agree that you’re not obligated to disclose your Birth/True Gender to a Heterosexual-Person:

If you’re a Homosexual-Person disguising yourself as a Gender other than your Birth/True Gender (Transgender-Person), and are presenting yourself to a Heterosexual-Person who has it in their Mind&Heart that you’re Heterosexual, then yes…that’s a Form of Rape. Even if the Heterosexual-Person is doing all of the Dominant Sexual-Actions, it doesn’t matter. It’s still Rape, because it’s the Manifestation of the Definition of Rape itself: forcing, coercing, another Human-Being into Sexual-Situations which they didn’t sign-up for, that’s completely without their Consent & if they’d known prior they’d never engage in. And, as we can all agree: any/all Forms of Non-Consensual-Sex are, by Definition, Manifestations of Rape. Since a Woman has the Right to say “No” to a Man forcing himself upon her, then equally: a Heterosexual-Person has the Right to say “No”, to know the Birth/True Gender of a Homosexual/Transgender Person and resist them forcing themselves upon them sexually.

My Declaration of Dissonance:

Standard

gareth-bryant-eid-pics-23.jpg

We hold these lies to be self-evident. All Men are not viewed equal. Our Creator has endowed us all with inaliable rights. But, some have been allowed to deprive Others of their rights. Life…Liberty…the pursuit of Happiness for some, and yet Death…Oppression…Imposition of Misery for those yearning to simply be humanized by their fellow Man. These United States go to, have gone to, various parts of the World to “liberate” & “spread Democracy”, while crushing the Humanity of Peoples within the American boundaries, the Homeland, without reservation…relegating the Original-Americans to destitute Reservations. Stripping them of country & culture, forcing them to adopt the ways of he who speaks with 2-Tongues…as if a few Indian-Owned Casinos are supposed to compensate for Wounded-Knee; I don’t think so. On to the Black-Man: you’ve tried to exterminate our pride through castrating our Men…raping our Women…slaughtering our Children. However, the Earth is round for a reason. Now, Jungle-Fever has invaded the interiors of your White-Picket Fences, and when your daughter’s asks, “Guess Who’s Coming Home For Dinner?”, it’s the one you hate the most…the Nigger. There were never any wants to free those shackled to your dominance, and when the dust of Civil-War settled, the KKK rose to repel the progress of Reconstruction: Black-Codes, Jim-Crow, Segregation, you know. Mexican-Immigration seems to be your greatest current fears. But, don’t you remember that all of the Southwest were part of South of the border in former years. After the Alamo fell, the Benghazi of the 19th-Century, you made a vow to drive-out the Brown from every Western town. World-War II, very recent to you: locking-up Japanese in Internment-Camps, mimicking the Nazis, using Asian-Americans as wartime Patsies. Then, 9/11: portraying every Muslim as a cold-blooded Terrorists. As the Buildings fell, our fellow Citizens damned us to Hell, simply because of lies told by our Government, so they sound the drums of War & Conquest: the Neo-Crusades. Then, the ISIS-Myth: nothing could be more ridiculous than claiming that a Group of Dudes who mostly speak Arabic, using English-Acronyms and the name of an Ancient Pagan-God to define themselves. Black Lives Matter is constantly confronted with All Lives/Blue Lives Matter, while completely ignoring Black-Lives.

For the first time in my life, I’m afraid to be Black…
…everything about who I am is under fierce attack.

I’m worried that my Mother will have to see me in a Casket…
…body mutilated like Emmett Till: a tragedy that’s so drastic.

I’m afraid that one day I’ll be blown away…
…by a Police-Officer’s Gun and at any day.

I’m apprehensive that I’ll just be another Black-Man killed in the Streets…
…and that my murderers will get away with it, and continue walkin da Beats.

It’s more likely that I’ll be killed by Cops than by ISIS…
…we live in a World where we just want to deny this.

Everyone wants to pretend that equality is here…
…tell that to Black-Men who live in constant fear.

Whether we’re Gangster or Corporate, it don’t matter…
…cooperating makes Police draw their weapons faster.

Why must Society make Others feel…
…that I do nothing but rob and steal?

Why are the Police trained to automatically view me as a Criminal?
The Racism of the 60’s resurfaced from its historical subliminal.

What are we supposed to do; how do we fight back?
The load is too heavy: I feel that I’m about to snap.

Britain’s Break From The EU:

Standard

David-Cameron

Much to many People’s surprise, including Former Prime Minister, David Cameron, who resigned as a result of a referendum in the United Kingdom to retire from the European Union-This decision has caused a domino-effect/tidal-wave like phenomenal financial & political scare all across Europe, as well as the rest of the World. What’s even more surprising is the fact that the People of Great Britain have been vocal about both still wanting to stay in the EU as well as agreeing to leave the EU. Though the vote itself was relatively very close, much like the NBA-Finals score in which the Cleveland Cavaliers were able to upset the former defending-champions the Golden State Warriors: it’s plain to see that Cameron himself wasn’t in favor of the split between Britain & the EU, and for this reason, he’s decided to bow-out of his position as the UK’s PM. This as well has absolutely tantamount effects within Great Britain itself, because the helm of the government needs to be replaced quick-fast and a hurry.

What’s most crucial, I think, pertaining to this is how the EU will be weakened economically, as well as politically. This news about the UK dumping the EU like a frustrated Boyfriend dumping his Prom-Date who’s had a crush on him since Freshman-Year, has placed the World-Market at a stand-still: no one really knows how long-lasting this event will have a foothold on the World-Economy. This is especially important for the United States, who’s largest trading-partner just ironically happens to be (yeah…you’ve guessed it Folks) none other than the EU. The economic aftermath of such a move on part of the UK will be talked about definitely for the rest of 2016, and may even be the top discussion for years to come. This kind of reminds of when studying about how England separated itself from the Catholic-Church, to form the Anglican Church of England, during the reign of Henry VIII. This was primarily done to ensure religio-spiritual, religio-political autonomy, as opposed to being subservient to the edicts & dictates of the Papacy. This seemingly is History repeating itself, particularly because most of those who were actually in favor of staying with the EU were People from Scotland & Northern Ireland, whom ironically are also historically very Catholic, while most English People are predominantly Protestant.

One of the other major issues at play, aside from all the financial ramifications is how Europe will share the responsibilities of hosting Refugees from various war-torn parts of the World, especially from their former colonial-possessions. But, also it seems as though the UK wants no part in accepting more Refugee type Immigrants coming to their shores, which has been a hot-button issue for a long time, as is still a hot-button issues for Americans here in the US. We’ll just have to wait and see how World will respond, if they can respond to this recent break of Britain from the EU.

The Orlando Club-Shooting:

Standard

orlando-nightclub-shooting-swat-officer

There’s  two very important things that I’d like to speak about, regarding these Shootings in Orlando, Florida.

Number-1:
At
 this time, I think that it’s appropriate for me to speak about the Orlando, Florida Mass-Shooting. It was wrong…period. There’s absolutely no authentic Islamic-Texts which justify what happened; no true Person-Of-Knowledge would support what happened. Muslims who truly believe in Allah & the Last-Day don’t support what happened…it’s an atrocity & a straight-up violation of what Allah predicates as the Sacredness of Life.(Noble-Qur’an: Chat.5, V.32) Furthermore, Allah commands us that even if we despise actions that People do, there’s never any Islamic-Justification to oppress them.(Noble-Qur’an: Chat.5, V.8)

Now, unfortunately, this did happen: unfortunately lives have been lost in a way that is completely unacceptable Islamically…unfortunately People who didn’t wrong their Murderer have had their lives cut-short…unfortunately Families all across the United States & the World have been force-feed yet another reason to fear/hate Muslims.

My message, to all those who’ve been negatively-affected by this tragedy-
I’m here to tell you, I am sorry to all the Loved-Ones of the Victims. I know how it feels to have relatives who’ve been killed via violence…it’s an ugly experience knowing that someone you know has had their lives unjustly taken away. And, that’s an experience which I never want to relive and never want anyone to suffer the agony associated with it.

My message to the Muslims-
This is a tragedy, so treat it like one. Just like what happens in Muslim-Countries, when our Brothers & Sisters are murdered, likewise when our Brothers & Sisters in Humanity are murdered it’s just as horrific and tragic. There is no honor in these types of actions. There’s no reward from Allah in these actions…this is not Jihad, this is Cowardice & Malice…this is Oppression.

Allah told Muhammad (Peace be upon him) “Verily, I’ve made Oppression prohibited upon Myself, as well as between you. So, do not oppress one another.”.(an-Nawawi)

This isn’t the post of an Apologist, because those who know me know I’m far from an Apologist. However, this is the post of a Muslim, a Human-Being, who does not support Oppression, regardless to who commits it.

Number-2:
Not to attempt to draw necessary-attention from the Mass-Shooting in Orlando, Florida. But, there was another Shooting in Orlando, right before this one: a Young-Artist was murdered on-stage, as she performed. Now, I’m wondering why this Shooting is seemingly getting less attention. I think that I know why: because that shooting of this Young-Artist isn’t Politically-Orgasmic…it’s just not enough to stir the Political-Correctness & National-Outrage pot. People get murdered in Clubs, Bars, Lounges, Arenas, Stadiums, Concerts, etc. all the time, yet none of them have ever gotten the National-Attention which they deserve. It’s simply because the Homosexual-Agenda is the Hottest new fad, coupled with the Perpetrator being identified as a Muslim: Islamophobia being the Hottest new trend. It’s almost as though this Shooting is being fade-out to be the 9/11 of Homophobic-Attacks. However, Life is Life: all Life matters…every Life matters…every Human-Life is sacred and important. So, we must/should never allow Sensationalized Media-Blitzes control our emotions & thoughts, convincing us that certain lives take priority/the backseat over others and/or that Life is only Sacred/Expendable when it’s politically popular/appropriate to be.
