Anti-Jewish Attacks and Mass Shootings; Psychiatric Drugs, Gun Control, Knife Control

A wacko intruded on Hanukkah candle lighting services at a rabbi’s synagogue in Monsey, New York and attacked 5 people, stabbing them with a knife. The attacker attempted to get away in his Nissan Sentra but he was stopped and arrested by police.

New York has had several incidents of anti-Jewish attacks in recent years. What is with these people? As the late Rodney King would say, “Can’t we all just get along?”

There are many issues here to address, and I have very little time with which to address them. But one issue is, was it really antisemitism that was the main contributor to the attacker’s attack? Apparently, the 37-year-old synagogue attacker “has a long history of mental illness and hospitalizations. He has no history of like violent acts and no convictions for any crime,” according to his family.

You see, one problem in our society now is that if someone has some emotional issues, or any kind of psychological or behavioral issues, the “doctors,” hospitals and schools immediately put the person on terrible psychiatric drugs, anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax, SSRI antidepressants including Prozac, Zoloft and Luvox, and anti-ADHD and other drugs to “help” the person such as someone who is labeled by practitioners as “autistic,” etc. I am not saying that this attacker has been taking any of those drugs, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

As I wrote previously regarding the suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and discussed in this post, those psychiatric drugs have a history of causing someone’s depression to get worse, causing suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and contributing to a person’s judgment that affects one’s ability to empathize with others as well as one’s ability to control aggressive impulses. Dr. Peter Breggin has written and spoken about these issues extensively and testified before Congressional committees on these issues.

And besides this week’s New York synagogue stabbing attack, following that there was another church shooting in Texas. Two people had been killed, but almost immediately the shooter was killed by armed citizens who shot back.

These attacks have been happening more in recent years, and many of the attackers had been taking strong psychiatric drugs. So, as I had mentioned previously, those past attackers include Columbine High School shooter Eric Harris, the South Carolina church shooter Dylan Roof, the Santa Barbara college shooter Elliot Rodger, the Sandy Hook school shooter Adam Lanza, the Aurora Colorado theater shooter James Holmes, and the Germanwings Airlines co-pilot Andreas Lubitz had all been taking those damn psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

I stopped trying to find out if any of the more recent mass killers had been taking those psychiatric drugs. This older article and this one list several more earlier examples of mass killers who had been taking psychiatric drugs prior to their rampages.

So, as I have mentioned in my previous posts, if someone wanted to stop taking the psychiatric drugs, to prevent dangerous withdrawal symptoms see Dr. Breggin’s book on psychiatric drug withdrawal, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families.

The reason why many people don’t know about those aspects of recent mass killings is that mainstream news outlets get a lot of their advertising revenues from the pharmaceutical companies. With these issues and other issues such as the nationwide blackout on the truth about the FBI and CIA’s illegally going after the Trump campaign and administration, we have seen just how dishonest and corrupt the mainstream news media really are. They are a disgrace.

So anyway, rather than frothing at the mouth over “hate” in society, perhaps the New York governor Andrew Cuomo ought to discuss why so many recent mass killers had been shown to be taking psychiatric drugs which no doubt have been contributing to their judgments and affecting their sense of empathy and conscience (or lack thereof).

Now, that’s the first issue involved here. Another issue is what is going on with the “black community” that is causing so much hate directed toward Jews? Again, obviously not all black people hate Jews. And not all the anti-Jewish attacks in New York had been committed by black people, but that has been common now. Robert Wenzel addressed this issue, and points out the possible influence that the “Nation of Islam” might have on certain communities, and particularly on the college campuses. The “Nation of Islam” is the organization led by Louis Farrakhan, a popular but anti-Jewish “minister.”

And finally, these incidents, including the anti-Jewish attacks in New York and elsewhere, show that the short-sighted, emotion-driven calls for more gun control are counter-productive. Will we see calls for “knife control” now? They have had that in the land of idiocy, England, for a while now.

Regarding these issues, there is an important organization, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). On their About page, they write:

Three primary goals drive the Washington-based human-rights group Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):

Destroy so-called “gun control” (code words for disarming innocent people).

Expose the misguided notions that lead people to seek out so-called “gun control”.

Encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for all citizens. The Second Amendment is the “Guardian” of the Bill of Rights.

And,

JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs (or none) who share a common goal of opposing and reversing potentially deadly victim disarmament policies. You don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO; you just have to love freedom.

Aaron Zelman, a proud Jew, initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. He was appalled that so many Jewish politicians and influential Jewish public officials and spokespeople actually advocated citizen disarmament. He said it many a time: “Jews should be the last people on Earth to support ‘gun control’. See: An Interview With Aaron Zelman

As JPFO expanded its research into gun laws and the results of their enactments, it became blatantly obvious that so-called “gun control” had played a fundamental role in all the major genocides of the 20 th Century … not just the Holocaust. See: The Genocide Chart

So-called “gun control” is a deadly lie. Firearms registration lists lead governments-gone-bad straight to gun owners. Licensing and registration of guns has resulted in outright banning and confiscation over the last one hundred years of world history. The bloody results of these mass citizen disarmaments have been horrific.

Based on this insight, JPFO broke new ground with the award-winning documentary Innocents Betrayed. In this powerful film, viewers learn the dirty secret of “gun control”: how governments have historically deprived people of firearms … and then murdered them ruthlessly. Fifty eight minutes of hard-hitting facts that leave viewers dazed.

So that is what they have to say about that. And I agree with them 1,000%.

And like most of the people on the Left, New York Gov. Cuomo is also big on gun control. He, along with Dianne Feinstein, Cory Schnooker and the rest of them want to disarm innocent people and make them defenseless to the criminal aggression of others.

And I wonder if Cuomo is now going to suggest “knife control.” Is he also going to suggest “hate control” such as with more censorship of the Internet and other places of speech and expression?
