Whenever a lunatic goes on a shooting spree and murders innocent people, we look for explanations, as if there could be an explanation for what happened early Friday morning in Aurora, Colorado. This impulse to understand is part of human nature. Sadly, so is the existence of insanity and evil, neither of which will ever be eradicated. Nevertheless, the mass shooting in Colorado has given secular liberals the opportunity to demonstrate their silly and arrogant belief that, given sufficient control over their fellow citizens, they, with their perfect laws and regulations, could prevent tragic violence, and otherwise create heaven on earth. On cue, here they go again, exploiting these killings to promote their anti-freedom, anti-Second Amendment agenda. As if, given the depravity and premeditation of this maniac, anything could have stopped him from committing murder and mayhem. We’ll hear some of the idiotic statements by the many stupid smart people talking at each other about this horrific event, and try to answer some of our own questions. Is it just me, or does it seem that our Lame Stream Media friends enjoy these tragedies a bit too much?
Apparently the people in Aurora haven’t suffered enough because today they must endure a visit from Barack Obama, who will no doubt get some lovely photo ops with the victims and their families. Perhaps he should stop by the jail and drop off a fruit basket for the shooter, since this story changed the subject from his channeling of would-be Native American U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s anti-capitalism rant. Was the decision to suspend the campaign correct, or was it simply a way for the Obama campaign to implement one of the key strategies in their playbook, avoiding any substantive debate with anyone who dares to oppose him?
I saw “The Dark Knight Rises” yesterday. Is it a metaphor for the upcoming presidential election? Hear my review and share yours.
