Today, a Kenyan (Africa) government spokesman, apparently with a straight face, suggested that Christian students, slain during last week’s attack by Islamic jihadists, should have “fought back!”

He further suggested, still with a straight face, that they should have “yelled and screamed!”

I suspect they actually did take his suggestion on the latter point!

Obviously not wishing to get into details, he made no mention of exactly how these forcibly disarmed Christian students could have possible fought back effectively against heavily-armed Islamic murderers. The government had repeatedly assured Christians that they didn’t “need” guns.

Islamics obviously didn’t get that memo. They never do!

And, before we all so righteously censure the incompetence and pathetically self-righteous rationalizations of the Kenyan Government, we should all reflect that the foregoing “advice” is exactly the same as what is typically promulgated by liberal big-city mayors and police chiefs over here!

First, we’re all told that we don’t “need” guns, and further, that we’re too stupid to own them anyway, as we might hurt ourselves.

Then, when the Visigoths show up, we’re supposed to “fight them off,” with staplers and fire extinguishers! If staplers and fire extinguishers are effective fighting implements, why aren’t they issued to police and Marines?

Guns are, of course, unthinkable. Only violent criminals, and the mayor’s bodyguards, “need” guns!

It is self-righteous arrogance of these leftist politicians that annoys me most. It can be said that they have forgotten what Country they live in!

Their lives are precious, while ours are insignificant and expendable. They claim to want to “protect” us, but they’re really interested only in protecting themselves, and their cushy jobs!

We can’t have guns, but they can’t get enough, and there is apparently no limit to the amount of our money they’re willing to spend protecting themselves!

What ever happened to “public servants?”
