Vet highs and lows

Richard Fierro, a 14- or 15-year Army vet (news accounts vary) displayed commendable cojones at the  Q nightclub shooting in Colorado Springs last week, grabbing one of the shooter’s guns and from the description striking said shooter about the head and body till he stopped.

He said he grabbed the suspect’s pistol from him and began “wailing” (sic) on him and beating him while telling a bystander to get the gun the suspect had been using away. The suspect used a legally purchased assault-style rifle, according to officials briefed on the investigation.

“I told him I was going to kill him,” Fierro said. He asked a drag performer to kick the suspect, he said, adding that she stomped the suspect’s face with her high heel.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department and the mayor’s office, the suspect was beaten so severely that he remains hospitalized as of Monday night.

Fierro was in the U.S. Army for 14 years and served in Iraq three times and Afghanistan once, Army spokesperson Sgt. Pablo Saez told ABC News.

Fierro told reporters that he and his family were at Club Q to watch his daughter’s junior prom date perform in the drag show that night.

Said date was one of those killed in the shooting. Fierro credits his Army training for prompting his actions. As I mentioned to AW1Ed when we did the story on the unarmed security guard who tackled an active shooter – being armed with only a big, brass set (and maybe a high heel) does occasionally work.

T’other end of the spectrum – a 23-year Marine and Air Force veteran John Doe is suing the military to get transgender surgery for his  ‘daughter’.

“I just want what others who have served their country want — the ability to take care of my family,” the father said in a statement. “My family has served right alongside me. My wife and I want our daughter to be healthy and happy like any parents would. My daughter shouldn’t be denied the healthcare she needs just because she’s transgender.”

His daughter, identified as Jane Doe, is a transgender woman who is a college student and remains on his health plan.

The father and daughter are challenging a 1976 statute that excludes coverage for transgender dependents’ medically necessary care. They say Section 1079 of the U.S. military medical code violates their constitutional rights to equal protection and due process, as well as the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibits discrimination in federal programs.

I could rant a bit about the excesses this tiny fraction of the populace  is foisting on us, but won’t: except to say as long as there is one legit DD-214 carrying vet going untreated, dependents (especially over-21 dependents – get a damn job!) of any stripe, much less the mentally ill seeking elective surgical mutilation, should rightfully stay at the back of the line. JMO.

I would LOVE to see a booking pic of the shooter (no names) after Fierro and friends got done whaling on him.
Would make an excellent demotivational poster, “Don’t Shoot in a Gay Night Club”

The motto should be “We may act like bitches but we won’t be your bitch”

Reports are the shooter is non-binary with they/them pronouns and wants to be called by the Mx. prefix. That story is about to be memory holed…no longer stunning brave, I guess.
As usual, the first reports on these stories are wrong and represent want The Regime wants and not the facts. I’m surprised it wasn’t reported he was listening to Kid Rock and shouting “This is MAGA Country!”

Everything is upside down on it. The left won’t let that stand.

“Beware of spiked heels.” “Our Dancers are Well Heeled.” “You’ll get a kick here.”

IDGAF if someone wants to change what The Good Lord gave them…Just don’t make me have to pay for it.

Two bad the spiked heeled person didn’t try and put the spikes into the perps eyes blinging him for life. Yea, you beat me to the punnies Gun Bunny, but I also got a kick out of it …

Thx, Mailclerk.
Holy shit! I’m surprised he’s still alive and breathing.
If he wasn’t suffering from brain damage before, he certainly is now.

“[Fierro] asked a drag performer to kick the suspect, he said, adding that she stomped the suspect’s face with her high heel.”

Some people would pay good money for that.

…….

Ain’t nobody or nothin’ gonna ruin this song for me!!!

The gay night club shooting is (y)our fault for pointing out systemic pedophilia and child sexual mutilation.
Haters.

SFC D

You shall not refer to “groomers” as “groomers”. It’s hate speech. I blame Elon.

Commissar

Calling the LGBTQ community “groomers” is the issue.

As is calling democrats, nearly half the population of the US, “groomers”.

You are not even being honest with yourself about the bullshit you spew.

Pay attention, Commissar. No one is calling the LGBTQ community groomers. Groomers who post videos of their grooming activities are being called exactly what they are. Groomers. There are even members of the LGBTQ community calling them out. Now go away and enjoy your thanksgiving. Fraud.

Commissar

You are so full of shit,

The day after the shooting, Tucker Carlson, the most watched right wing pundit in the country…

Had a segment with the banner “liberals leave those kids alone”…where he repeatedly referred to democrats and those advocating transgender rights as groomers, pedophiles, and child genital mutilators.

And it is exactly that show I suspect you are referring to when you said even members of the LGBTQ community are calling them out because one of his guests was a representative of “gays against groomer” who echoed Tucker’s rhetoric by calling those that treat gender dysphoria “groomers and genital mutilators” and that liberals are complicit

Also, have a pleasant thanksgiving. And a happy holidays..

I don’t watch Tucker. What I do is read a variety of news sources. And what I read is that a large portion of the LGBTQ community do not want anything to with the groomers in their community. Groomers come in every sexual orientation, every gender. Your liberal bias makes you unable to see outside your bubble. You’re still a fraud.

11B-Mailclerk

Who bot dis is?

Commissar

It is their fault for spreading lies and conspiracy theories about it.

While there are religions that practice genital mutilation on Children. Some Islamic communities, most christian societies, Judaism in general..,

There is no child genital mutilation happening in the US with regards to gender dysphoria.

Rand Paul flat out lied, and the Heritage foundation made up excuses to make him “technically correct”.

What is happening is some some children are being given puberty delaying therapy. So they can inhibit irreversible sexual development until they are 18 and old enough to make the decision on their gender identity.

Nobody is mutilating their genitals. Rand Paul lied. Studies have shown this hormone therapy that inhibits and delays puberty. Which does have effects on height, bone density, and the appearance of the genitals. In that it prevents them from developing post-pubescent genitals. That is not the same as “mutilation”.

These lies are driving fear and hate.

“There is no child genital mutilation happening in the US with regards to gender dysphoria.”

Performing irreversible “gender affirming” surgery on minors is genitalia mutilation. Fraud.

rgr769

Anyone who thinks creating a frankenpenis out of a girl’s vagina isn’t genital mutilation and medical malpractice is a fraud peddling liar. Another big lie from the crypto-commie Progs.

Fyrfighter

The shooter was “non-binary” Commissar.. How would someone like that be “inspired” by Tucker Carlson?

Commissar

The same way all right wing crackpots are.

Some of the biggest anti-LGBTQ extremists are people struggling with their own gender or sexual identity and projecting that internal self hate outward.

They were raised with ideological or religious hate toward the LGBTQ community and when their own internal identity comes in conflict with their lifetime of hateful programming they become self loathing and explosively dangerous.

The frequency of staunchly and outwardly loud anti-LGBTQ politicians that have later become publicly outed in their own homosexual scandals is high for a reason.

Fyrfighter

Ahh, ok, it couldn’t be that most of these people have significant childhood trauma / abuse and as a result, end up with significant mental issues, leading to the self loathing and danger could it?
And while I agree that islam hates the “community”, in that they regularly throw such people off buildings, Christianity abhors such behavior, but does not hate those going down such a path. Anyone who does is not following the teachings of Christ. I understand that most on the left equate failure to fully accept a lifestyle with hating those involved, but we both know that’s just a fallacy designed to promote a narrative.

SFC D

You continue to demonstrate you’re the most close-minded person on this forum. Worst case of tunnel vision in history. You can’t see outside your liberal cage. Enjoy your delusional life. Fraud.

A Proud Infidel®™

Major Moonbat, you perpetually prove yourself to be a blind follower of the cult of liberalism and proving that it’s a mental disorder. YOU cuss and fret against everyone who dissents with your cult, remember how you screeched that you wanted to find and fight me? When did i ever say the same to you? IMHO you’re a brainwashed cultist.

A Proud Infidel®™

Ahh, once again you display what a brainwashed slave you are to your propaganda, and I appreciate you showing us just how one sells themselves mind and soul to being someone’s “useful idiot” much like those who blindly followed the likes of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot and others only to end up forgotten and buried in mass graves, Happy Thanksgiving, Major Moonbat!

Commissar

Also, in a small fraction of births… a child will be born some degree of intersex. In those cases the doctors do their best using the appearance of the genitals and hormone test to determine what gender the infant was “supposed” to be.

They do corrective surgery to make the genitals appear more “proper” to the gender. This kind of surgery is literally common medical practice. It has been going on for a century in the US.

Arguably that is mutilation. The transgender community is actually pushing to stop that practice since often the best guesses of doctors are wrong and these children develop gender dysphoria as their assigned gender feels “incorrect”.

And, as I referenced earlier…circumcision is by definition genital mutilation and it happens in every hospital every day with nearly every birth in America…

Yet, the right is silent about that. Because their cultural and religious bias sees it as “normal”.

Stop spreading ignorant, hateful conspiracies.

SFC D

Stop spreading groomer talking points. You sound like their marketing director. Fraud.

rgr769

He can’t help it. He gets his talking points from the hive-minded Prog central command. The cuttlefish has the mental prowess of an earthworm.

A Proud Infidel®™

IMO he’s brainwashed to the umpteenth degree and REFUSES to believe anything not in lockstep with his cult dogma!

Commissar

Also, the number of children receiving puberty blocking hormones is about 4500 per year nationwide.

Not the hundreds of thousands or even “more than a million” lies I see being spread by right wing propagandists.

That’s about 4500 too many, you sniveling jobless fraud.

But, hey… nice to know you’re totally cool with all of it though.

SFC D

I have no problems with puberty blockers in extreme cases of precocious puberty. Using it for gender dysphoria is child abuse. They’re using Lupron. It’s effective but the side effects are terrible for adults. Memory loss that makes you think you’re suffering from dementia. Hot flashes. Imagine a school kid dealing with a brain shut down by puberty blockers. Actually, it probably makes it easier for the GROOMER. Fraud.

Here you go screeching about Children NOT being allowed to be groomed by your fellow cultists, I’ll pray for you.

Roh-Dog was thoughtful enough to send us a couple links on a disturbing crime.

Ex-Army soldier admits to stabbing fellow soldier 40 times for reporting marijuana use

By Jeff MacDonald
SAVANNAH, Ga. — A former U.S. Army sergeant faces life in prison after he admitted he stabbed a fellow soldier to death in June 2020.
Byron Booker, 29, pleaded guilty to the murder of 21-year-old Army soldier Austin James Hawk.
Ex-Army soldier admits to stabbing fellow soldier 40 times for reporting marijuana use – Boston 25 News

Bond has been set at $250,000. Now I understand -Dog’s comment.

Roh-Dog

Been trying to not think about this but it’s been gnawing at me.

That former-SSG best be glad the Missus is more worth stayin’ for than a blinding desire to take a midnight train to Georgia, grab a friend at Firebase Magnolia, find the prison this asshole’s at, and treat him to a oneway trip thru a chippah pro bono.

Booker is the kind of piece of shit that other turds look at an’ exclaim, “Fuck that asshole”.

KoB

C’mon!…and bring her. She can pull Fire Guard Duty on the crocked pot and make sure supper is ready when we get back. Iffen you take the Amtrak midnight train, I can be to the Savannah Terminal in 2 hours or less. I did the 400 mile little over 6 hour drive so 120+- will be a piece of cake. Iffen you hop a freighter train, Bronson yard is 20 miles. And a main freight line heading east out of there towards Savannah is rifle shot distance from Firebase Magnolia.

Now on finding this dirtbag; if sentenced by the state, he will start out at the Diagnostic Center in Jackson, Butts County. They’ll determine where he will be placed. Don’t really matter, I have low friends in high places thru-out DOC, including transport, and he won’t be hard to find. Another Compatriot is way up the ladder with Pardon and Parole, jus’ sayin’. Many of the COs are Vets themselves, so they will make sure that he becomes a chief taster at the BTJ&T Deli.

MCPO USN

firing squad for Byron Booker, immediately.

11B-Mailclerk

Nah.

Bayonet practice.

Prior Service

Ahh, the vagaries of dependent healthcare. Tell me, again, why Obamacare covers children up to 26 while the military’s healthcare (and I use that term loosely) kicks them off at 18 (unless they are students)? Now, in my book, you are an adult at 18, not 26 (so get your own coverage) but why are military kids screwed by Obama? (Sorry, meant Obamacare.)
