SWATting the Hogg

I’m probably gonna annoy some people with this. Oh well.

An anonymous — and fraudulent — hostage-situation emergency call to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office resulted in a Coral Springs Fire rescue team racing to the family home of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

A local TV station reported that “Hogg was not home at the time of the incident and is currently in Washington, DC with his mother to accept the RFK Human Rights award.”

SWATting is the dangerous “prank” of calling in fake crime reports in order to get heavily armed police to show up at the victim’s house. The resulting situation is potentially deadly.

The condemnation for today’s SWATting attempt on Hogg and his family has been swift and universal — and that’s just the condemnation coming from the Right.

Follows, a whole passel of Tweets from Righties screaming about how just awfully awful it is that it happened to the little twit.*

But honestly, guys? I just ain’t feeling it. Yes, yes, it’s a horrible, no good, and very dangerous thing to do. No decent person would ever dream of doing such a thing. It puts innocent lives at risk, wastes police resources and time, and has resulted in at least one wrongful death that I know of.

And as with doxxing, it’s now become just another arrow in the Leftist quiver; they’ve used it against their enemies—that would be us, in case you were uncertain about it—without a thought or care, way more than once. It represents another line of civilized behavior trampled under Lefty jackbooks with nary a look back.

So do I get upset when the Left has it thrown back at them? Why no, I can’t say that I do. Do I wish such abuses didn’t happen? Sure I do. Would I rather things hadn’t come to such a godawful pass? Of course. Would I ever dream of doing such myself, or recommend that someone else do so? Not in a million years. Am I going to join others on the Right in anguishing over it happening to the Left now that they’ve long since declared open season on us, with no holds barred and no bag limit?

Nope.

It goes back to what I’ve been saying for a while now: the Left needs to be made to feel pain—real pain, pain that can’t be waved away or brushed off—for their ever-escalating depredations against decency, civilized behavior, and the right to dissent. Seems to me that this is one way to make that so, if an admittedly extreme one.

Anybody see this story earlier today?

Congressman Steve Scalise returns to baseball a year after he was shot at practice

Watch the video. It’s pitiful…and enraging. Hats off to Scalise, of course; he’s shown nothing but class, heart, and courage throughout what one might call his man-caused ordeal, and one can but admire him for that. But he was crippled, most likely for life, by a Democrat Socialist true-believer who only differs from the so-called “mainstream” in his willingness to act on the things they’ve all been saying.

Note, too, that the nearly-successful attempt on his life was “condemned” in only the most mealy-mouthed, half-hearted, and self-serving terms by Democrat Socialist leaders, and even that only after they’d been hectored about it by the Right. As for the Progtard rank and file, the main takeaway from their response was the openly-expressed regret that the shooter didn’t succeed in killing the guy.

And this same despicable response happens every time any similar atrocity occurs. Every. Single. Time. You could set your clock by it.

Now, I’m not slamming all those well-intentioned folks on the Decent Right who reacted with honest horror over Hogg’s SWATting. But I’m not going to be joining them. It sounds to me like the old “This is NOT WHO WE ARE” argument writ larger, deployed on a different battlefield than the usual NeverTrumpTard one.

We’re in a war here, people; maybe not a shooting war, not yet, but a war just the same. Seeing how they’ve brutalized good, honest people on our side again and again and again without repercussion, my patience with them is exhausted, my sympathy when some of their own splashes back on them nonexistent. Some lying, clueless liberty-thief gets himself SWATted, or doxxed, or sucker-punched? Meh. It’s just sauce for the fucking goose as far as I’m concerned. Most of them deserve a lot worse. And if they keep on pushing their fascist agenda, they’ll quite likely get it, too, before all’s said and done.

*Note, too, that the whole thing smells to high heaven anyway, if Hogg’s own too-blasé response is any sort of tell—and it is.

Update! Dang it, I double-posted this one by accident, discovered the error this morning, and deleted the one with the comments attached before heading out to work. Gonna try to fix that in just a bit if I can; sorry for the glitch, guys.

  1. Andrew Finch wants to know why the results of the Hogg swatting weren’t the same as they were for him.

    It’s a shame they didn’t wipe out that filthy pig spawn and his entire family. But then I suppose the swatting pigs were able to smell the pig stench as soon as they got there.

  2. I totally agree. Sure, it’s a bad thing, and it should be punished. AFTER the Leftists who’ve gleefully used this tactic against us are punished. So Hogg can get in line. He can have his turn at justice after all those abused rightists get theirs, and not a minute before. I have a feeling he’ll be waiting for a long, long time.

  3. Gravy. Goose. Gander.

    (And now I’ve made myself hungry, dammit.)

    Now, I’m not slamming all those well-intentioned folks on the Decent Right who reacted with honest horror over Hogg’s SWATting.

    That’s okay. I’m here to do it for you. No need to thank me.

    Hogg wants to repeal the 2nd Amendment, eliminate private gun ownership, and get the government – read “the cops and Feds” because he doesn’t have the balls to try to disarm you himself – to kick in your doors and take your guns away, something that will result in the deaths of an awful lot of gun owners and cops and Federal Agents if even only a fraction of 1% of gun owners go 3 Percenter over it.

    All I have to say to the “Decent Right” that are exclaiming in horror and outrage over this is, “Were you born stupid, or did you have to work at it?”

    We’re in a war here, people; maybe not a shooting war, not yet, but a war just the same.

    Stephen Scalise, mentioned in your post.
    The guy who was killed by a SWATting, also mentioned in your post.
    The older people (multiple) who were dragged out of cars and assaulted and battered during the 2016 elections and primaries.
    The woman who was egged and assaulted during rally in the Primaries.
    The homeless woman who was assaulted and battered while trying to defend Trump’s Hollywood walk star.
    Rand Paul, beaten while mowing his lawn by an anti-Trump Democrat neighbor.
    The guy who was dragged off the stage at a rally while trying to violently get to Trump.
    The fire at Trump Tower.
    Charlottesville…

    Should I continue the list? I can.

    We’re in a shooting war.

    The other side is the only ones shooting – and that’s only because the Right is far more patient than one has any right to expect.

    But I’m not going to be joining them.

    I wasn’t even tempted.

    We’re in a war here, people; maybe not a shooting war, not yet, but a war just the same.

    Makes two of us.

    And I still suspect that Hogg SWATted himself for the publicity.
