What lesson should be learned from the killing of a police officer this past week?
Now we have to repeat an old lesson. You have to know there's a wind of liberalism blowing, and it's all lies. They'll tell you statistics that are lies, their statements are all lies. People will NEVER refrain from crime unless they are afraid of punishment! And murder has to have the death penalty; otherwise you'll never stop it. These liars say there's no proof that the death penalty is a deterrent.
You know that the Italian construction worker has more intelligence than the editors of the New York Times, no question about it, because these are artificial people, they don't think straight! It would be the very best thing if the editor of the New York Times once took a walk in Central Park, and he'd get a drubbing from some bums, or they would flash a knife at him, then he'd stop being a liberal. Because in the ivory towers, the affectation, the showing off, it's all showing off! They are against taking human life they say, oh terrible, they're horrified.
So what do they do? They are for abortion, and killing of millions of babies every year, that's alright! But taking human life, whose human life? A murderer? Oh no! We don't repay murder with murder! Then society themselves become the murderers, that's the very worst example! To murder a man who killed a policeman? That's a murderer, which means we are the murderers. So as long as we listen to these fools - these are fools, they have no intelligence at all, but they are doing it for a purpose, an affectation of showing off to make an impression on the world that they are higher people!
The truth is that they're the lowest of the low, because they're the ones who advocate every form of perversion, every form of wickedness there is. So how long, how long fellow Jews will you be blind and you'll vote for such people as Gov. Carey? You don't even think twice. Such a rasha merusha, Carey is the one whose hands shed the blood of all these innocent victims when he vetoes the bill for the death penalty, Carey is the arch murderer.
And all those people, I won't say the names of the Orthodox who make deals with Carey, they will get certain funds from the state therefore they will get the Jewish vote; they're all shedding blood, innocent blood, and Jewish blood. There's only one way to deal with crime, and that is there should be strict, stern punishments. For stealing there has to be stern punishment, for every kind of crime. The world will never be safe when the liberals are in charge of the attitudes of the public. We have to free ourselves from these attitudes, that's what we have to learn.
What do we learn from the murder of a policeman? We learn that you must go back to what was years ago, when they didn't murder policemen, they were afraid to murder a policeman, because they knew it meant sure death. If you murdered somebody else, also it was a pretty good chance you would also end up in the electric chair, but for a policeman he knew for certain that that was his sure destination.
But today? So that is what was caused. We are the ones who are to blame, and our own lives chas veshalom are in danger because we are stupid enough to be swayed by these whims that sway the reshaim.
Good Shabbos To All
