It’s important to remember that even though the media makes it appear the world is a cruel and savage place, they are only reporting on a very small fraction of the human race made-up of politicians and other sub-humans who do awful things for their own sick reasons. People like the murderer in New Zealand are by far the exceptions in a world-wide population of people just trying to live their lives as best they can. It’s the liars and killers who get the attention.
The author says “with the blood of the victims still wet on the ground, people jumped to politicize the event”. But people don’t need to “jump” to politicize something that is inherently political. The decision to murder 59 people and injure over 500 others is not somehow “non-political”, it is the ultimate in politics: making the decision to end someone’s life is about as political as it gets, whether it’s mass murder or the death penalty, or a declaration of war. This statement about “politicizing” an “event” is code for “I love guns”. Apparently there is no appropriate time to discuss gun control because the weaklings who depend on them for their false sense of power and self-worth have no realistic argument against it. Every time one person shoots another these people are complicit in the commission of a crime.
No, we are not advocating violence – just wondering what the Hell does it take to get these assholes to do something?
In another poll conducted at the same time, 71% of Americans were found not to be batshit crazy. Also, of the 29% found to think armed revolution may be needed, 100% thought the Boston Marathon bombers were wrong to attack other Americans. The poll also found that 100% were inconsistent in their thinking. And they don’t vote or read, or actually have any real idea of what is going on in the world around them.
BTW – I got the foam from a picture of a camel. I hope the camel doesn’t feel insulted.
