Babykilling new Sport-du-jour. Update: No fatalities, lots of injuries…

Actually in French it would be jeu du jour which is kind of a really bad pun.
But, in China, a day care center/preschool was the scene of a knife attack.
I didn’t read past the headline, sue me. 28 people stabbed, no word in the headline how many died, no word how many were kids.
The motive isn’t given either, but if it were, it would sound like gnarblsgnashsnarlwhipframdoodle.
In short, it wouldn’t make any sense to an actual sentient person anyway.
I know the standard arguments this will arouse, I bet if I turned on Bile O’Liely or whatever twit is holding forth on Hate-TV and Hate-Radio right now I’d hear “See, if one of the kids had a gun it would never have happened”
News Flash, China has Universal Conscription, meaning everybody in the whole damned country learns how to use guns at one point in his life. They also make quite a few guns, so many in fact that they sell them on the export market. Those SkS machine guns that are ever so popular up on Rampart Range, for instance.

“See, even a knife can be used as a weapon of mass murder”. Well, sure. And if the guy had taken in one of those readily available black-market firearms and some spare magazines he probably would have killed quite a few little kids. And they probably wouldn’t have stopped his shooting spree as readily as they stopped his Stabbing Spree.

OR, maybe it could have been stopped. The Gun Lobby Morons don’t make much mention of this, but when GoofBall Adkisson decided to go all Elmer Fudd (be vewwy vewwy quiet, I’m hunting Wibewwals heh heh heh heh heh) on a church in Tennessee he was the ONLY one in the church with a gun. An Alley Sweeper. Automatic 12guage shotgun wit magazine feeds.
He, too, was targeting the kiddoes. Killed to adults who were an order of magnitude more MAN than he could even fantasize about being, unarmed, Liberals, one of them a retired Marine. Stepped in front of the muzzle which was aimed at the children of the church.

The “upshot” (don’t you just love it when appropriate words exist?) of the deal was the Same Gun Freaks who say that More Guns in schools would prevent crime, filled his nasty pointed little head with the notion that Liberals were Pussies and if he pointed a gun at them they would fold up like laundry, beg and plead with him not to shoot them….

Marvelous things, those Shooter’s Manifesto devices.
And who did he get the idea from? Right Wing Hate Speech shows on Television and Radio (newspapers don’t count, it would mean having to actually read something besides the television schedule for next sunday)

AAAAAANNNNNNDDDD… in China there’s a death penalty. And another fellow was executed recently for killing 8 children in a stabbing spree. Unlike Texas, for instance, where they NEVER execute people who are obviously insane or mentally retarded. Just ask them, they’ll tell you.

So apparently, none of the things the Wreligious Wrong tell us here in the States that would “Make America Safer”, all of which are implemented in China, would do one hell of a lot of good.

The British had a term for the type of “insanity” caused by rapid total immersion into a foreign culture, “gone native”. By WW2 it was often called “going Asiatic” because supposedly the Chinese and other Asian cultures were so completely foreign to a Western Mind that the westerner would be driven mad.

That IS one reason cited for the violence in China. That the people have been uprooted from their own culture and force-fed Ours.
Maybe they’re right, and it won’t be too long now there will be incidents of somebody driving an SUV into a Luby’s Restaurant window and jumping out, and spraying bullets all over the place. Like was done in Killeen Texas.

Then, and ONLY then, will they have reached Our Sacred Level of culture and sophistication.
