- Haruka Weiser was a first year theater-dance major at the University of Texas, Austin.
- Weiser left the rehearsal hall Sunday evening and her body was found Tuesday morning in a creek bed on the campus.
- A 17-year-old African-American Son of Obama was charged with 1st degree murder in her death. The defendant has been in the foster care and juvenile corrections systems most of his life.
Now, looking at the victim, one can make certain assumptions. Haruka Weiser was a dancer, so assume she was slight of stature. Most serious dancers will be around 5 foot nothing and weigh at or under 100 pounds. Her attacker is a healthy young man, probably around 6 feet and 180-200 pounds. Easily overpowering. She was from an upper middle class family from Oregon. Most likely raised in a liberal household that would have trained her to see all African-American males as victims of white privilege and not an overt threat to her existence. This family, more than likely would not only have not trained her to defend herself, but would have taught her to shun her natural instincts of survival, seeing them as racist and wrong-minded. Even if Ms. Weiser had been licensed to carry a weapon, and since Texas made it legal to carry concealed on state university campuses, University of Texas (being the Flagship of Liberal Idiocy in Texas) ruled against allowing their legally licensed students to conceal carry on their campuses. So even if she'd been licensed, she probably wouldn't have been carrying. Some people don't question authority when it comes to their well-being, trusting The Powers That Be to keep them safe from Evil. (The number of times I said "licensed" should be a clue that I believe in Constitutional Carry. The 2nd Amendment should be more than enough.)
But that didn't help Ms. Weiser. A very young, naive and unprepared woman crossed paths with Evil in an environment she was brainwashed to believe would keep her safe. I hold Liberalism almost as responsible for her death as I do her attacker. I believe, if the environment she grew up in and inhabited in Austin had been a little less "enlightened" and more realistic, she might have had more of a chance. Twenty-twenty hindsight will drive you crazy. Would she still be alive if she'd been trained in self-defense emphasizing situational awareness? I don't know. Would she still be alive if she'd been trained to handle a weapon and was not only ready to use it, but convinced it was HER GOD GIVEN RIGHT to use it to defend herself? I don't know that either. What I do know is that both of those things and the support of women to defend themselves instead of being sobbing peeing victims would have maybe tipped the scales in her favor. But we'll never know, and that's a big part of the tragedy.
Why am I pouring this out to you, my faithful readers, whom I believe to be very staunch supporters of a woman's right to self-defense? Why am I "preaching to the choir"? Mostly because I hope, using several key words, some Liberals will stumble upon this post and read it. Most will blow it off as being Right Wing Hate Speech, but somewhere out there, someone may stop and think. Someone may have a change of heart. Someone, somewhere, might seek out self-defense classes, defensive handgun classes, arm themselves mentally and physically, and be able to stop or survive another attack. Because Evil exists, it walks among us, and it doesn't respect tolerance, but it does respect a .45 ACP slug.
Be careful out there and know I'm praying for you,
