Exploitation of Tragedy
All these groups out there that are exploiting the murder of six people at the hands of a schizophrenic gunman should be ashamed of themselves. I say “should,” because I know they will continue to push their agendas, regardless of the facts, and – in so doing – prove that they have no shame.
So – go right ahead – blame the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, The DailyKOS, Jon Stewart, and whoever else you please. Use this opportunity to ban guns or censor Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. Why not blame Rock Music, Videogames, and Global Warming, too?
Just know that a lot of us are really sick of it… We just want to mourn the loss of six innocent people — without listening to all of your B.S.
We don’t need you to tell us who is responsible. We already know. 22 year old, Jared Loughner. He’s a drug abusing, psychotic, and, almost certainly, schizophrenic a–hole. He was tackled by some brave people – private citizens – while he was trying to reload his pistol. And they held him down until the police arrived. Tonight, Jared Loughner sits in a jail cell, awaiting judgment.
If you don’t know or don’t care that, ultimately, Jared Loughner is the only one to blame, then I am ashamed of you. Even though you’re not honest enough to be ashamed of yourself.
