Chattanooga…to the shores of Tripoli

A country legend, rock and roll icon, and a true southern gentleman with credentials, Charlie Daniels once immortalized those words “the Devil went down to Georgia.”
To play on that theme:

Well, this week a Devil went to Chattanooga with very much the same thing on his mind: he was looking for souls to steal. Not just any but proud American ones. Ones who, in the prime of their lives, had something to offer America and more than the will to serve it, giving it. Yes, a devil sneaked in there to snatch someone up and all he got was their vain assassin for the trouble.

Instead, the shooter got what he bargained for, the devil’s cauldron stew. His due for the purchase was what he meant for others, paid in full. But it cost him his soul that day, all he had — or thought he had. He played the game and got snake eyes. The men who lost their lives had something so precious he couldn’t even have dreamed of: freedom, honor and dignity, and a country who appreciated them. But the shooter met his match. No paradise of which he wrote. No glory for his cause. Just another lost, stolen and used up soul on a wasted effort. He bartered it all and lost it all that day.

He got his name in the press, the name he claimed caused security alerts. But in the end, it was not his name that caused all the damage. We know what it was. So now that name will cause nothing but grief. He staked out his lot and his plot staked him. But there was no respect and glory in what he did. Nothing in return. A failed bid to make a failed stand. Instead of hope, he got the short straw. Five lives were lost, but their immortal souls were gained, five more for the trumpet to sound. A pity the shooter will never know that honor and glory he tried to cheat. Just another wasted soul, on the road from Tripoli.

RIP now five Chattanooga heroes.

Now for a President who always lectures on the importance of context — or the context of important matters — what Obama did after should be seen then in the light of the terrorist attack in Chattanooga and the questions it raised.

The White House released a statement later in the day to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan.

As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs.

Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!

As an article at Western Journalism framed the context, for the preoccupied White House:

“Chattanooga killings reality: The morning of Eid was marked with the sound of gunfire echoing through quiet neighborhoods across a peaceful Tennessee city forever scarred by the attacks.”

“It is a heartbreaking circumstance”, according to Obama’s WH statement:

“It is a heartbreaking circumstance for these individuals who served our country with great valor to be killed in this fashion.” He added in his statement that “we take all shootings seriously.”

(except when the shooter is an illegal in a sanctuary city, already deported 5 times.)

I couldn’t tell if that was Obama making that statement or Deepak Chopra. Apparently “heartbreaking circumstance” are the new code words for domestic terrorism.

    Excellent post Bull. I love the way you put it in your first paragraphs.

    The killings of these 5 honorable men is not a “circumstance”. It’s another Islamic terrorist attack and Obama once again shows his cold hearted manner in which he views these deaths.

    To call for us to celebrate a Muslim holiday afterwards is beyond horrendous and offensive to these Marines,their families and to all Americans.

    Then he dashes off to a Broadway play as if nothing happened.

    I don’t know how much lower O can get but I’m sure we’ve not seen the bottom of his evil heart and soul. To say I’m outraged by this behavior is not enough. I have no words to describe the way I feel about how he treated these horrible murders of our best and bravest.

      Pepp, I appreciate those comments. Well said. I really was trying to search for words but that is what came up. And we can be pretty sure Obama won’t even try to find words. (though he is called an articulate orator–hogwash)

      The Oval Office Occupier looked a little distracted like he was forced to say something. Don’t trip over your tongue, Barrynista, and never ever call it what it is. We know he was briefed but we don’t know if he was briefed by Jarrett on it. Agitator in chief had no one to blame.

        Barry did not even speak live. His cold comments were taped as he ran off to enjoy himself without a thought in his head about our Marines.

          Pepp true I was thinking “is it live or is it Memorex?” Maybe so we couldn’t connect his cold, dead timeline.But then it was programmed like everything he does. He also didn’t say anything reporters hadn’t said. Does he think he is Peter Jennings?

    Batears can lower the flag to half staff when the crack ho Whitney Houston croaked, or he can opine about Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, Baltimore and Charleston yet he can’t muster any outrage of our lost soldiers at the hands of a jihadi.

    I am beyond disgusted.

    Really good post Bull. Love your comments.

    I keep seeing them saying all the proof is this was a lone wolf attack in attempt to put the public at ease. The pr*ck that shot these heroes like dogs was alone. The idiot gov reps still miss the big picture or simply don’t want to acknowledge it. Either way is unforgivable.

    This asswipe was a die hard, homegrown, islamic, jihadi terrorist. There are plenty more just like him, so there are plenty of accomplices to committ more acts of terrorism. At least one US attorney came out of the gate stating this is terrorism. But that lousy ass new Attorney General won’t use that term yet. Barry – as we already know – is just a traitor wasting good oxygen and his actions disgust, but don’t surprise.

    This will continue until the feds call this what it is, acknowledge it’s being inspired by the butchering islamic fanatics in the ME and go kick the shit out them in their homeland. They’ve already declared war on our homeland, so time to take it too them without mercy.

      Dave, back-a’cha. Perfect.

      Lone wolf. There’s a wolf in the WH too, but its not a lone wolf. Wait to see, investigate, who he’s associated with. Well, he associated de facto with 30 thousand + ISIS jihad by what he did. His actions are proof. They step up and ….instant association. Period.

      Plenty is right. What’s he going to take a poll? Is he waiting for a mushroom cloud to tell him? Leave it to him to spend more time on an Eid statement to Muslims than terrorist victims. I hope he enjoyed himself. (er, I probably don’t)

        Barry loves to kiss the muzzie ass. He pukes up a crappy deal – great for Iran though – and right after that Iran’s Ass-atollah Khamenei is chanting along with their killer critters “death to America!” I wonder if Soetoro was celebrating Eid or IED’s? Either – maybe both – I’m sure works for the Traitor In Chief.

          Dave, so who knows if his words were code? Might as well be. How about that? Just at the same time, is almost too much to stomach….and him insisting we can’t stop either one.
