If you did not know it, over the weekend another nut job went on a shooting rampage and killed roughly 6 people (including a 10 year old girl who was born on 9-11-01) and wounded around 12 more (including a Congress Woman from Arizona). When I heard about this shooting my heart sank for the family and friends of the deceased and the wounded people who were shot by this jackass. I am tired of hearing about senseless murder and crime in general. Why couldn’t his jackass just gone in his back yard and taken his own life instead of doing what he had done. He has gone and destroyed so many lives in just mere seconds and now he is going to be in jail for life getting free room and board, 3 square meals a day, cable tv, access to a library, and you and me have to foot the bill. I sure hope he gets the death penalty for what he has done in ruining so many lives.
In addition to the sadness and anger I felt over the shooting, I got even more pissed off when I saw the news reporting on this tragedy. If you have read my post about the lame stream media, then you know what I am about to say. If you have not read it yet, then please do so, so you can understand what I am talking about. You see the news media outlets did not even bother to get any facts together about this case. Nope. Not one of them. They all started to say the shooter did this because of the political rhetoric in the country the last few years. The left (CSB, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, my local paper even) was saying the shooter was a right wing Sarah Palin loving nut job. The right (Fox News) was saying he was a pot smoking liberal. Hey media, how about getting the facts before you declaring judgment? You know how about digging into this guy’s past, find out how he got the gun in the first place; try to find out why he did it. You know find out something for fucks sake. The blood on the concrete was not even dry before judgment was passed by both sides on why he did what he did and it makes me fucking sick. Shame on you the media for doing this, SHAME ON YOU.
Blaming anyone (or anything) other the shooter for what was done, is ridiculous. It would like blaming video games and McDonalds for why your kid is fat and failing in all his/her classes at school, when it is really the parents fault for not getting the kid off of the couch and shoving shitty food down his/her throat. Put the blame where the blame is.
Anyways, this guy here that I follow on Facebook often posts some pretty funny rants on youtube. And the one he did on this very subject was spot on. You can see his Facebook page by going here.
I agree with him.
Edited to add: If you remember when the Fort Hood shooter went off killing people, the media said we shouldn't rush to judge the guy as a terrorist simply because he was a muslim. Yet in this case the very same media who said we shouldn't rush to judgment with Fort Hood shooter, went off and rushed to say that this sick guy was a tea party member/Republican/Conservative just because he was an mentally disturbed angry white man. Do you see the hypocrisy?
Edited to add again: The Washington Post had an article which complained about rhetoric of people like Glen Beck and Sarah Palin. And then posted this picture right here. By doing this cartoon isn't the Washington Post doing the same damn thing that they are complaining about the right doing? I think they are. I hate fucking politics. Nothing has brain washed more people in history than politics, schools, and religion.
