This is not a serious post, although I feel a bit guilty about writing an unserious post on a day of horror. I emphasize the unseriousness of this post only because I don't want people to think I've gone all Alex Jones-y on you. Jones is always
Have you noticed that parallels between Aaron Alexis and Lee Harvey Oswald?
Both served in the military. Both (presumably) served on naval bases
. Both lived in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Both got into trouble for the accidental discharge
of a weapon. Both serviced military aircraft -- the U2 in Oswald's case, the C-40 in Alexis' case. Both received less-than-honorable discharges from the service. Both went on to work as civilians for defense-related firms -- Oswald worked for Jagger-Chiles Stovall, while Alexis worked for a tech firm called "The Experts."
Both learned difficult foreign languages -- Russian for Oswald, Thai for Alexis
. We haven't been told that Alexis learned that language pursuant to his military career, but that's the way I'd bet -- even though the official word is that he was never posted overseas. Note this
He also became fluent in Thai from watching Thai dramas and talking to others who spoke the language. He also traveled to Thailand at one point.
That sounds a bit like Oswald, who supposedly learned Russian from books and records -- although we later learned that he actually
attended classes at the Defense Language Institute
I wonder why Alexis went to Thailand? He's starting to sound a bit spooky.
Of course, there's the most obvious point of similarity: Both Oswald and Alexis are alleged to have shot from windows
As predicted, we were told (at roughly ten this evening) that authorities were confident that Alexis "acted alone." Earlier, of course, we heard that witnesses felt certain that there were multiple shooters. I saw interviews to that effect earlier today. Seemed convincing.
Again: Don't take this post too seriously. Just trying to make your synapses sizzle a bit.
A few more notes of similarity...
Both men experienced conversions to doctrines which many Americans would find unusual -- Buddhism in the case of Alexis, Marxism in the case of Oswald.
Both are said to have performed feats of remarkable marksmanship despite being previously labeled bad shots.
Both had security clearances
. In the case of Alexis, the DSS gave him a secret clearance even after he had been discharged for misconduct -- a situation which strikes me as a bit odd, although perhaps a reader can tell me whether it truly is
Here's a serious question: How did Alexis get a valid pass to get into that facility?
Just hours after the shooting, a strange little man
-- barefoot, but apparently not homeless -- was arrested for discharging a weapon in front of the White House. If you hit the link above, you'll find comments more startling than gunfire:
MOre like the leftist who just shot up the naval base.
the anti-christ brings violence again to the american people.
Pretty ugly. But if you want to see really
ugly, I think I've discovered the ugliest site in all of the internet. It's called The Mad Jewess, and the motto is "Islam sucks." Here's how they covered the shooting:

Is he also a Muslim?
We are brainwashed to believe that only white, right-wing extremists are the perps of these type mass murders. Even though most all domestic terror is carried out by leftists: Facts About #Communist Leftists
There are also many mass killings perp’d by blacks: Black Serial/Mass/Spree Killer List.
