More Islamaphobia and Anti-Liberalism in Texas

This is why we can’t have nice things

Like many gun store owners, Crockett Keller offers concealed handgun classes at his store and is licensed to do so by the Texas Department of Public Safety. He will gladly teach you how to properly carry your weapon, unless of course you are a Muslim or Liberal, in which case “Fuck You.”

“I consider all Muslims our enemies, no matter how nice they are. I could not trust one and I, as an instructor, am not going to teach one how to shoot a gun and aid him in getting a license.” – Keller

The Law is hazy on this, as a store owner Keller has the right to refuse service to patrons but as a licensed representative of the DPS, he may be bound to provide those services without discrimination.

“If you are a socialist liberal and or voted for the current campaigner in chief, please do not take this class. You have already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as under the law.”

Now, Conceal and Carry classes that I have attended are usually taught by gun nuts of the right wing sort. I was more than happy to sit through their litany of liberal jokes (having to sit through the same at work) to get the necessary block check to carry my .45 if I so choose. But that is a step away from just denying service. And news to Mr. Keller, the Muslims you should be actually afraid of, the tiny minority that are Violent Extremists, already know how to shoot, and it is hard to conceal an AK. And as a liberal gun nut, I am sure that I could shoot circles around most other people.

      >>I think it would be funny to have a liberals vs. conservatives shooting match there. <<

      –if that happened, would liberals use the real bullets and conservatives the blanks…hmmm

    Islamaphobia?

    Since Islam is a terrorist organization, why would Islamaphobia be a bad thing?

    Not all Muslims are terrorists, but virtually all 21st century terrorists are Muslims. If moderate Muslims (as if being insane is moderate) had any moral values they would have thrown out their terrorist organization immediately after the 9/11/2001 religious atrocities.

    If Muslims are too cowardly to grow up and throw out their idiotic violent cult, then they have my total contempt.

      Human Ape,

      You are kidding, right?

      virtually all 21st century terrorists are Muslims

      Citation really, really fucking needed.

      In the US you are far more likely to be killed by a Christian terrorist than by a Muslim terrorist. And I don’t see your average evangelical Christian “growing up and throwing out” those who are willing to kill for Jesus. In fact, they often say things like “He goes too far, but he has a point,” or “Well, of course you shouldn’t kill people, but I can understand why he did it.”

      Those who try to follow the teachings of Islam while remaining decent people have the same problems that those who try to follow the teachings of Christianity while remaining decent people. It can only be done by ignoring large parts of those teachings. There is no reason to single out Muslims trying to deal with this problem over Christians. All of them will have to twist their brains into knots (with the resultant breaking of said brains in some cases) to accomplish the feat until they let go of God. Then they will, as the Bible correctly states, be free.

        It could be tempting to shun all abrahamic adherents for that twisted psychology, except, in trying to be decent, some have proven they could make a “prudent decision” to ignore their teachings.

        Individuals would still have to show signs of having snapped to warrant special treatment. Hints of associations aren’t enough. There are plenty of reasons besides whole-hearted knowing agreement with an ideology to self-label, especially given the erosion of malicious ideologies as generations of prudent/ignorant factions make up their own variants with the same label. Until there’s nothing left to membership but nodding along and making excuses for cousins of a label they never thought to discard.

      First point : Troll-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol-lol

      Second point : Aside from your completely arbitrary data set, where you have to narrowly tailor your dates to make your claim kind of work. You first need to separate out insurgency from terrorism. If North Korea invades the states and started coopting Americans into their service, would you take kindly to that? I for one would be blowing up fools left and right (though being a bit more ethical about it than some).
      Let’s look at living memory.
      Ireland
      All of Africa, such as the Lord’s Resistance Army
      The Basques
      The Serbians
      FARC
      Japanese Fascists
      Domestic Terrorism
      Norway shootings
      White Power Terrorism
      South American Naro-Terrorism
      Black Market (Mob) Terrorism
      And those are just a few.
      Perception might be reality, but you need to get some better glasses.

        Also, thanks for calling me a whimp on your blog. Even though I kill people for a living, it is nice to have one’s ego reduced every now and then. I will informed the two dudes we ghosted last night that they can press respawn as surely my general compassion for humanity negates my skills at putting people in dirt nap mode.

        Please send all hate mail to:

        Just put wimp in the To: Box so I know that its for me.

          If you had actually shot anybody, that would be war.
          My TV says we aren’t at war any longer, and never really were, and we’ve won besides.

          Therefore: You must not exist.

          See? Logic!

          Joking aside, I’m always amused by the look on a WND-type’s face when we meet at work or socially and the talk turns to weapons (as it often does). I don’t hide my politics, so conservatives of the more drooly type generally don’t expect me to hold my own in their Kirk-vs-Picard debates over caliber and ordnance. (Something in a controlled frag for me, thanks.)

          Given this – what else to call it? – prejudice, I’m surprised this gun store bigmouth even considered librulz as potential customers.

          I’m also guessing he’s ignorant of case law and the uses of the Interstate Commerce Clause.

    I love me a good bit of Islamophobia. Makes me feel alive. After all, if you can’t brand an en entire religion with over 1.5 billion adherents a terrorist organisation then really, what is the world coming to?
