Two stories from the last few days have had some updates that warrant commenting.
This story about a few Muslims training children for school shootings in a compound in New Mexico again highlights the double standard some in this country continue to try and push which will lead us closer to a civil war. Fox News has reported that the five defendants were let out on $20,000 bail and GPS trackers.
The state judge who on Monday set a $20,000 bail for five defendants arrested at a remote New Mexico compound where authorities say children were being trained to conduct school shootings has a history of issuing low bail to violent offenders.
Judge Sarah Backus, an elected Democrat, ordered the two men and three women to wear ankle monitors, have weekly contact with their attorneys and not consume alcohol or own firearms while on bail. She said although she was concerned by “troubling facts,” prosecutors failed to articulate any specific threats to the community.
The five suspects were arrested more than a week ago when police raided a squalid makeshift living structure near the Colorado state line in response to a report of children living in filth, severe hunger and dangers including a leaky propane tank. The 11 children found at the compound were placed in state custody.
So let’s recap: five people keep children in squalid conditions in a compound and teach them how to use guns allegedly for school shootings. A disabled child is reported kidnapped by the father. A body found at the compound is suspected to be the disabled child, reportedly killed during an exorcism to “cure” him. Does this sound like a sane group of people who pose no harm to the community? I have a hard time believing this same standard would be applied if it had been a militia in Michigan and Caucasian defendants. Even if you forget about the firearms training, which I’m okay with and is perfectly legal, is it really safe or fair or sane to let people out who let a kid die under their care, didn’t report it, and buried him without notifying anyone?
Not surprisingly, the judge in this case is a Democrat who went to school in California and worked in San Francisco for many years. The article also reports she has a history of loosening up bails and sentences for violent offenders.
An update from this story in the continued deplatforming of Alex Jones. Twitter has officially banned Alex Jones for 7 days after a livestream telling his viewers to prepare to defend themselves. Yep, that’s it.
The legacy media and big social media are trying to kill free speech outright. This is obviously a concerted effort to deplatform InfoWars. These companies didn’t all magically and independently decide to ban them on their own. The Twitters, Facebooks, and YouTube’s of the world will continue to pretend they are all about free speech then shadow ban and outright block anyone who doesn’t support the narrative. Straight up 1984.
Update: And it looks like they’re going after Stefan Molyneux next.
