bring back our sons…a sad, frustrating and familiar plea

You believe people are basically good? You believe people cannot be evil? Then explain why a group of hoodlums would run off with hundreds of children.

You say it is no big deal, that as such crimes go this is small potatoes? You say half of the boys have already escaped. You say the other half are still alive.

Boko Haram is a bunch of homicidal maniacs. Like as not this mass kidnapping is part of their recruiting program. If so, then Boko Haram will do its best to twist these boy’s minds until they too are homicidal maniacs.

We often hear that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. In truth, many of people who peddle such slogans seek to dominate the minds of our children and our own minds by propagandizing us. They indoctrinate us both through our education systems and the mass media. When people control what we believe, they can control what we do.

Supposedly, the whole idea that Democrats stole the election is farcical. Democrats ask: how could they cover up such a massive plot? When Liberal Democrats own both our schools and the mass media, is that really a serious question?

Who should we trust more? Boko Haram or people who send their own children to private schools and pressure us to send our children to schools they run? Boko Haram, a terrorist organization that frankly explains its murderous objectives or insidious leaders who tell us endless lies in the mass media?

You say I exaggerate? If you without question trust the public schools and the mass media, how would you know?

“Stop killing our children, bring back our children,”

Terrorist organization Boko Haram

Well it appears that in these days of all-consuming news of all things election and or pandemic…
somehow I missed a most tragic story out of Nigeria.
It’s a story that actually took place nearly three weeks ago.

A deja vu sort of tale.
As I wrote a post 6 years ago about a very similar incident.

It seems that there has been another mass kidnapping of kids from a private boarding school
in Nigeria at the hands of the notorious Islamic group Boko Haram.

A massive group of armed gunmen stormed a school in the northern section of the country

    This sad affair can be related to what is happening in urban areas of the USA and the world..
    Instead of “Boko Haram is a bunch of homicidal maniacs,” it is urban gangs in Chicago for instance.

    In other words, once a young impressionable youth in the most vulnerable time of their lives is recruited into a gang, they are in effect being recruited into a culture of drugs and crime.

    Sad no matter where it happens on any scale or numbers like Chicago is experiencig/

    • Chicago is the gang capital of the United States. According to the Chicago Crime Commission , a 2012 Chicago Police Department gang audit found there are more than 600 gang factions in the city, with a minimum combined membership of 70,000.(google)

      Corruption must run deep if year after year thugs can run off with boys and girls and abuse them. Corruption must run deep if China can enslave entire peoples and prevent them from reproducing. Corruption must run deep if…….

      Because corruption does run deep, I did not have to go looking for a coat hanger. I just saw one and used it.

      The leaders of radical Islam, Nazism, Communism, and so forth always insist upon indoctrinating children. Because it is so obviously abusive, Boko Haram serves as an unambiguous example of how thugs can manipulate children. Coat hanger for my grievances? You say so, but that does not matter. What matters is whether people have acquiesced to election fraud simply because they are the victims of unrelenting propaganda.

      Tell me. Do you know whether or not propaganda works?
