Marjorie Taylor Greene got a rude awakening at her Floyd County, Georgia home at 1:00 in the morning. Her family got swatted. Cops showed up and stormed her house, based on a “hot tip” from some Democrat. Fortunately, no one was hurt, and she even thanked the police for their professionalism.
As one of the most fervent Donald Trump supporters in Congress, “Notorious MTG” is widely hated by the left. They want to kill her, just as leftists want to kill all Trump supporters and The Donald himself. Leftist violence is really getting out of hand in this country, and Greene is lucky that she lives in an area with somewhat professional cops.
Oh, and I was right next to a cop-versus-fentanyl-hobo gunfight at the grocery store last Friday.
“Swatting,” for those who are unfamiliar with the term, is a potentially fatal prank that Democrats use to try to get the cops to kill their political enemies. They phone in a fake 911 call and claim that they heard gunfire coming from such-and-such an address, and then hope that an armed SWAT team will kick down the door and shoot the conservative who lives there.
It’s happened to YouTuber Tim Poole a couple of times this year while he’s been on-air doing his live podcast. Poole is no conservative, but he says a lot of truthful things and that is intolerable to the modern left. Many other conservatives have fallen victim to this vicious prank as well, so we are fortunate that no one has been killed in one of these “pranks” yet.
But Democrats know it’s only a matter of time until they do get the cops to kill conservatives in this fashion. What if Marjorie Taylor Greene had happened to be cleaning her AR-15 the night when she got swatted? It could have been a very different outcome. But again – good cops led to a good outcome.
Which brings me to the gunfight at my local grocery store last Friday. A stinky fentanyl hobo came in the grocery store while I was at the checkout stand, grabbed a bottle of booze in the liquor aisle, and started waving a weapon around (probably a knife or box cutter; news reports didn’t say later). What happened next was fairly quick. Two sheriff’s deputies arrived and ran straight to the stinky fentanyl hobo. I was about 30 feet away and behind the bread aisle, so I didn’t see what happened.
The deputies yelled for the hobo to put the weapon down and immediately tasered him. He must have activated his fentanyl superpowers, though, because that didn’t phase him. The cops fired 5 or 6 shots, and it was mostly over except for all of us panicked civilians running around.
Having never been in a shooting in a public place before, here are my three quick observations.
First… people really do scream and run for it when there’s a shooting in a public place. I thought maybe that was just a thing from the movies, but it’s real. They scream. And they run. Be prepared to have to maneuver around panicked people if you ever find yourself in a similar situation.
Second… it happened really fast. From the time when the cops ran into the building until the stinky fentanyl hobo was turned into Swiss cheese, probably less than 30 seconds transpired. The sheriff’s deputies didn’t wait around outside for an hour like the cowards in Uvalde, Texas. They ran in, shot the bad guy, and no one else was hurt. That’s good policing. It’s the kind of policing that the taxpayers deserve. Just like the cops who DID NOT fire their weapons at Marjorie Taylor Greene’s house. Good policing. Perfect outcome.
Third… I kind of have a crush on Lydia who works at check stand #9. Which is… probably not relevant to this discussion.
My point is that this is the kind of country we’re living in now with Joe LOL-81-Million Biden in charge. Lawlessness. Fentanyl hobos everywhere. I have family members all across the country and everyone is complaining about the fentanyl hobos. Why’s there so much fentanyl? Oh, right, because our southern border is wide open.
Although I’m glad that the cops shot that fentanyl hobo the other day, I’d much rather live in a country where there’s law and order, and therefore fewer fentanyl hobos to begin with. The backlash to this lawlessness is going to be furious. And it’s coming in a two-part red wave: First in November, and again in 2024. We need law and order restored, and either Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis is going to do it.
