Last week Wade Michael Page (a 40 year old Army reject), walked into a Wisconsin temple and opened fire, murdering six Sikh worshippers and critically wounding three others for no reason what so ever. As he walked through the temple shooting one Sikh after the another, one has to wonder what goes through the mind of a (and I use the term loosely) man like that. White supremacists have a motto "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children." Their fear is rooted in the fact that for the first time in history the caucasion birth rate is in the minority, and Black, Hispanic, and Asian babies account for 50.4% of all births in this country as opposed to 37% 22 years ago. But in all reality excuses and fears aside, most members of these hate groups are a bunch of inadequit, under achieving white guys who are either too lazy or too stupid to become clear thinking, productive members of society so they blame someone else for their inability to thrive in a system that has been designed for them to do so.
I fail to see how murdering innocent peace loving unarmed people in their house of worship helps to secure a future for white children. The fact of the matter is that we are all responsible for securing a future for our children, and mass murder is not the way to go about it. As strange as this may seem there was a time in this country when personal responsibility meant something. It meant that you alone are responsible for your success, your failures, and the health and well being of you and your family. These groups choose to blame other races because they have no idea what personal responsibility is, and although they seem like crazed fringe groups we must realize that there are other shadow groups that exist all across the country. They speak in code and say things like "We want our country back." (a common Tea Party statement), and they love to talk about the good old days. What we must ask ourselves is, who took "their" country, and who were those good old days really good for?
In the end rather than face the consequences of his actions Wade Michael Page killed himself in a shoot out with Police, doing the world a huge favor but I wonder how many other malicious, unhinged losers are out there plotting similar crimes, and what would happen if more people began to exercise their 2nd amendment right to bare arms. I don't advocate violence but, I do believe that a man should defend his family by any means necessary and with crimes like this on the rise it may be more necessary than ever.
