The Prodigal Returns

I go away for one day, and wouldn’t you know it, a vicious violent extremist decides to commit murderous acts of extremism in and around the parliament building in Ottawa. Despite the tragedy of yesterday’s events, we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the incident had nothing to do with Islam.

Last night in the motel room I kept flipping back and forth from Fox to CNN, watching all the coverage on Ottawa. Some of it was good, some not so good.

I’ll have more to say on this topic eventually. In the meantime, see Vlad’s place for all the details. It’s his hometown, after all.

One thought on “The Prodigal Returns

  1. There’s something instructive in the disproportionate applause for the inestimable sergeant at arms. God bless him for his quick actions and I’m glad that no one at the Parliament building was hurt.

    However, I can’t help but wonder how the legislators have responded and will respond when “mere” citizens are faced with the inevitable results of insane government policies that result in the importation of Muslims into Canada. The legislators, one door away from being killed, were ecstatic at having been spared by effective and harsh action by their dedicated guardian. However, I hazard the thought that threats to and injury of mere citizens remote from them will be and have been met with smug indifference and a determined continuation of the government’s suicidal policies.

    This will not be any wake up call. The gated community in question was merely spared unpleasantness. The sergeant at arms was, of course, permitted to possess a loaded weapon. The unfortunate soldier at the monument was permitted only symbolic protection — a real weapon, but which was required to be unloaded.
