The Boston Massacre: What the Public and our Government Refuse to Admit

Posted on 18 April 2013


Now that the dust has settled on the events of Monday past, as we bury our dead and heal our wounded, this fact remains:  America is at war with Islamic terrorists that continue to chant “Death to America” and seek opportunities to kill innocent Americans and disrupt our way of life.


Evidently, this reality has failed to sink into the consciousness of most Americans, many in our government included.  Lighting candles, holding prayerful vigils, and memorializing the site with flowers and stuffed animals is sending the wrong message to the person or persons that perpetrated this heinous act.


In the Hollywood movie, The Searchers, at the desert funeral ceremony of his family massacred by Comanche Indians, John Wayne portraying Ethan Edwards states vehemently “Put an amen to it.  There’s no more time for praying.”  Contemptuous of the customs practiced by society, the Duke is more interested in vengeance than ritual.


This is the response needed to avenge and declare to our enemies that their nefarious deeds will not go unpunished.  We can no longer turn the other cheek when slapped in the face with reality.


Our government should retaliate with swift, decisive action against those who would harm Americans and jeopardize the freedoms that we hold so dear.  It doesn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to identify, in the use of an improvised explosive device (IED), the trademark of our enemies – radical Islam.  We have been slapped in the face at Benghazi and now in Boston, USA, and it’s time to slap back.


No doubt, this action will lead to calls for enhanced security at sporting events, parades, and other public events.  But, at what cost?  If the actions of our enemies force us to submit to invasions of our collective privacy, then we will have traded our freedoms for security and our  enemies will have won.


Rather than burden American citizens, we should place the onus on those who would enter our country.  Background checks should be mandated for any person or persons who wish to enter our country – regardless of his or her status.  Legal immigration should be limited to those who can make a significant contribution to our nation, and our borders should be closed to those seeking to enter illegally.  And, illegal aliens should be returned to their countries of origin; thereby, solving one of the national problems we have today.


For all American citizens, it’s time to rally round the flag in an effort to preserve our way of life.   With so much anti-American sentiment in the world today, it may be time to consider a new isolationism that will both protect our citizens from harm and restore American work to American workers.


It is time for America to heed the motto of Teddy Roosevelt when he stated “speak softly and carry a big stick.”  These are the facts, and they are not subject to dispute by any reasonable person.  Now, we as Americans must affirm our resolve to defend the “grand experiment” that is America, the “shining city on a hill.”
