(My prayers go out to the families so tragically affected by this senseless act of bestiality. That said there are a few issues that need to be addressed. This in no way should be seen as making light of or demeaning what has happened. God Bless all who mourn and sorrow)
Congratulations to the radical left, marxist, socialist, Daily Kos, anti-anything good, moral, or praiseworthy crowd. Thanks to them six people are dead, 12 injured. You have pushed people to the end of their ropes, you have driven some of them over the edge of sanity. How? By encouraging the belief that government is an evil, all rights consuming succubus that they have NO control over. You have continued to refuse to listen to the majority (and here in THIS free country, the majority is supposed to still rule). You have created a country in which people are afraid to say anything to their neighbor for fear of being sued or arrested. You have insisted that there is not God and that the only thing that is important is “your” rights, and “your” agenda.
This would be a ridiculous rant if it the left wasn’t already saying the opposite about the right. Yes the Daily Kos, the arbiter of civility, morality, and intelligent discussion (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more, say no more) has already trotted out the tired old refrain. “Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity et al, it’s all THEIR fault”. Wait I forgot George Bush and Carl ( the architect) Rove, my bad. While all of the above are proponents from personal freedom they are also strong proponents of personal responsibility.
Crazy is………..CRAZY. Do we know why someone does the awful things they do? No Can we stop them? Not unless we want to give up all of our freedoms and live in the Gulag. It is the price of living in a free land that sometimes bad things happen to good people. That’s why you live everyday as if your were going to be gone tomorrow.
So now that we know who did this, and there are many witnesses so they can’t claim he didn’t do it, how will this play out. He’ll get a trial (in many countries this would just be a show) and be judged by a jury of his peers (of course they can’t let crazy people on the jury so I’m not sure how to feel about that). Than IF he’s convicted (because of course there is the insanity defense, used so persuasively by the killer of John Lennon- I forget his name) the real fun and games will begin. Thanks to years of liberal back room deals, the death penalty has become the slow boat to life. He will continuously appeal until he either dies of natural causes or is killed in a prison riot by his prison pimp or “girl” friend. The next nutjob will be emboldened by his “Lifetime” movie biography and attempt to create for himself a cult following.
Maybe instead of rushing to judgement and name calling, we could all take a couple of steps back and respond with sensitivity, caring and concern. Maybe instead of vitriol we could try reason and calm. Maybe instead of automatically making enemies of those who think differently than we, we could share our common distress and try to find common ground on which to make the country and the world a better place to live.
Or we could just say as did Daily Kos Founder and chief lunatic:
