As the people of Newton, CT grieve for the victims of the Sandy Hook School murders, they must contend with the plague of pompous, parasitic pant loads, hoping to exploit this unimaginable horror to advance their own personal agendas, including later today, Barack Hussein Obama. On Friday, he addressed the nation, wiping away tears, which amazingly appeared on the outer corner of his eye, the opposite side from where the human tear duct lies. I guess this unusual anatomy is just another example of the One’s unique and awesome specialness. Or it could just be that he was faking the tears.
This event gave the Jurassic media the opportunity to fire up their somber montage machines, with their inevitable achingly-sad solo piano soundtracks, and to descend on Newtown, CT to use it as a backdrop for their silly stand ups. Any doubt that this incident was a major news event was erased when we saw political hack turned objective truth seeker George Stephanopolous not only on the air on a Saturday morning, but on the air wearing his “serious journalist” glasses. Maybe it’s just me, but I think that, once again, our media friends are enjoying this event a bit too much. To what extent does the orgy of media coverage contribute to the chance of more of these incidents?
This tragedy provides a perfect set of circumstances for the Left to advance several of its treasured agenda items. The shooter’s murdered mother was–wait for it–not only a gun enthusiast (!), but also–are you ready for this?–a home schooler! In addition, the occasion of another “troubled” young man, presents the opportunity for proponents of big government, and the always destructive, reactive “just do something” mentality to press for not only the obvious, that is, infringements on our 2nd amendment rights, but also for more government “programs” to assist the mentally-ill. No matter that this shooter’s family apparently has the resources to provide the help he obviously needed. His case is useful to the Left, as the press for more government, and, as we have often noted, they never let a crisis go to waste. The reality is that a gun is an inanimate object. Don’t we need more nut control?
What would the Founders have made of the country they helped create? Were they the cautious, measured patriots that we revere or were they radicals willing to use all means necessary, including violence, to oppose Great Britain? Les Standiford, author of Desperate Sons: Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Hancock, and the Secret Bands of Radicals Who Led the Colonies to War will join us to talk about the Sons of Liberty, the secret society determined to impose change on what were the Colonies.
