I’m a little too angry to write much here. I’m not going to go into the shooting itself. For one thing, for the first 2-3 days you usually have more speculation and made-up nonsense than actual facts. Instead, I’m going to go into the responses of some people to this tragedy. So, let’s see that folk had to say:
Isn’t that just charming?
Let’s see what else is out there. Oh, there’s this gem:
Leaving aside the factual errors (giving her the benefit of the doubt) in the statements look at the line “I don’t feel sorry or feel bad about what happened in Las Vegas”.
Only counting those who voted not those supporters who, for whatever reason, didn’t make it to the polls, that’s just under 63 million people “i am cassie” wants dead–over political differences. Five times the total killed in the Holocaust, she wants dead because she doesn’t like their politics.
While I suspect none of these would have the stomach to do it themselves these are the people who would be perfectly willing to stand by and cheer while others load conservatives into boxcars and send them to “showers”.
And it’s not just a few disaffected people on Social Media. The Vice President (former now) and Senior Counsel for CBS said that she wasn’t even sympathetic to the victims of the shooting since country music fans are often Republicans. At least CBS had the presence of mind to fire her. I imagine something like “As senior counsel your job is to keep us out of lawsuits, not lead us into them.”
Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) said Monday that he won’t participate in a moment of silence on the House floor for victims of Sunday night’s deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas. Nope, not going to participate in a traditional expression of grief and mourning.
Normally, at this point I would make some statement to sum up the post but…I got nothin’. There are just no words.
