While the president was being racist about Baltimore & conservatives across the country were telling themselves "yeah, I can live with that," there was another shooting by another right-wing, gun-sucking turd of a human being. Three people were killed, including a six-year-old boy, & the shooter had recently gotten deep into right-wing literature & purchased the gun legally in Nevada. The whole thing lasted less than a minute apparently, but you're already hearing depraved ammosexuals try to blame California's restrictive gun laws or the fair in question's gun-free zone, because they're awful.
I'm sorry, there were actually three shootings of note yesterday. One was at synagogue in Miami, which makes the third synagogue shooting this year. Luckily, no one was killed but the rabbi was shot several times in the leg. The shooter is still at large. The other was in Wisconsin & appears to be just the run-of-the-mill murder-your-family-and-then-kill-yourself type of deal, which is American as apple pie. The cops are saying who or why, & despite the body count, it's barely a blip on the national radar.
I'm not going to wade into the gun control debate, mainly because you'd have to work pretty hard to convince me that we took the path of no return when Sandy Hook went down & a not-insignificant portion of the population at least entertained the idea that it was a false flag by Obama to take our guns. I'm too mad & too heartbroken to even pretend to give half a shit what some weird screwball who gets pants-shitting mad when told the "AR" stands for "assault rifle", because in 30 years, they've never once said anything new. It's just not worth it anymore.
But tell me this is not a fucked up way to run a society. Tell me that we are seriously screwed in the head that you can't even go to a goddamn garlic festival & not worried that some limp-dicked raging dingbat won't shoot you & your kid dead because a Jewish girl wouldn't fuck him. Tell me this is not a sickness grown deep in our culture & that the way things are simply is not working.
If you do, I'll call you a goddamn liar & never pay attention to anything you say ever again. Piss off.
