Politicizing Tragedy

Pages: 1 2

After last Friday morning’s devastating shootings in Aurora, Colorado by maniac James Holmes, the liberal media responded with unbridled rage … at conservatives. First, ABC News’ Brian Ross attempted to label Holmes a Tea Partier based on nothing other than a quick Google search that turned up a “Jim Holmes” engaged in Aurora, Colorado Tea Party activity. As it turned out, the Tea Partier Jim Holmes was a fiftyish Hispanic male; the shooter was a 24-year-old white male.

Next, liberals leapt to the conclusion that lax gun control laws made the attacks possible. CNN’s Piers Morgan quickly tweeted, “America has got to do something about its gun laws. Now is the time.” He followed up that gem with this one: “More Americans will buy guns after this, to defend themselves, and so the dangerous spiral descends. When/how does it stop?” The answer, of course: the cycle stops when people defend themselves and shoot incipient murderers in self-defense.

Piers was merely the first to jump the gun, so to speak. “Soothing words are nice,” intoned New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, between seizing the sodas of passersby. “But maybe it’s time that the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country.”

Bloomberg’s line is the most telling. Liberals love nothing better than to myopically focus on one event, blow it out of proportion, and then use it as an excuse for national legislation. It’s the same pattern they pursued in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting, when suddenly the apparent killing of a teenage hoodlum by an overzealous neighborhood watchman turned into a national story about race … which, predictably enough, turned into a national controversy about “Stand Your Ground” laws and voter ID. Even though George Zimmerman, the shooter, hadn’t even initially claimed a defense under the “Stand Your Ground” statute.

But that’s the pattern: take an instance, freeze it, magnify it, polarize it, use it as a weapon. It’s pure Alinsky. That’s how the media turns the shooting of Gabby Giffords by Jared Loughner into a national debate over civility in politics. Ignoring the actual identities of the shooters in these cases is crucial – the facts usually cut against a good leftist narrative; so the left simply ignores the facts.

    And the anti bullying movement, it is a completely liberal fabricated problem. All the left did was declare there are no right or wrong behaviors, refuse to punish abusers then offer counseling to the victims. I have a special needs son who went through this, the complete refusal of the educators to tell the bully that physically assaulting a handicapped student was bad because that would be judging him! When truth becomes relative, it creates the chaos that evil men who want absolute power then walk through the rubble to rebuild society in their own ideal and likeness. Wasn't it Marx who said that?

    • Amused

      Your story sounds anecdotal at best . Anti-bullying campaigns do not exclusively exist in the realms of the left , they are initiated by ALL sensible people . And the problem is in fact being addressed . Try easing up on your "spin " lest you sound like an idiot .

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        If there is no right or wrong, how do you define bullying?

        You may not be a complete idiot, but your talking points do have gaps in them.

        • Amused

          well Rogo , I'll dumb it down for ya .You did go to school didn't ya ? Are you gonna sit there and try an tell me you never witnessed a kid getting picked on constantly ? And please tell me , WHEN and WHERE did you EVER see in ANY of my posts , where I stated or implied that there was "no right or wrong " .Now you're acting stupid Rogo , and for the sake of a parroted political ideology ….oh well that's your choice …CHUMP . tsk ,tsk , and you did :"sound intelligent" for a moment further down the thread . LOL….funny , I never did notice whether the bullies , their victims or the parents of the victims , were Lefties or Righties ….did you Rogo ?
          I don't know Roger , judging by your picture , you seem old enough to know better , but I guess gullibility is a charachter defect that seems to run deep with most of you guys . After all even some of the brightest of ya'll like Krauthiemer still believe that Obama returned Churchill's bust back to the Brits.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            But that goes against the definition of the morals people have been teaching.

            If it feels good, people should be 'tolerant' and 'accept' and not condemn. You come here doing exactly what you just laid out as wrong .You act as if bullying is all right as long as it conservatives who go against the talking points.

          • Amused

            Oh Roger , there you asssdsuming like the rest of your lot ….please show me WHERE I indicated or implied that ? It is people like you who react to folks who want to deal with bullying [and not in the presumptious way you so errantly imply] that you criticize and brand as leftist . Sorry chumpn , your just another lock step parroting sycophant . Your brain has been filled and muddled with memes and talking points , so much so , that I'm beginning to wonder if you can think for yourself at all . Looks like you conservatives wanna take the place of the palestinians as eternal victims .

          • Amused

            you're out of intelligent replies Rogo and now you're just grasping for straws . You dont have an original though in your head , do ya ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            It's hard to reply intelligently to so much stupid.
            But I do my best. What are you going to make up next?

            And you still haven't given a single example of the right making political points by falsely accusing a leftist of a crime the way you implied we did. You know, facts are not your friends.

            Now, what distracting comment will you come up with now?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Why should I quote your own comment back while on the same thread?

            Go back and read it yourself.

            You are so typical of liberal hacks.

          • Amused

            Because you're full of sheeet and you know it Rogo -boy . Not only that , but you are a LIAR . Put up your proof or wear your crown asssswipe .

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Why should I go back and quote you from on this thread? Don't you remember what you said? Is that just asking too much from you?

          • Amused

            Why should you ? Because you have lied ,and made false accusations , so as a man you have the burden of proving yourself other than a LIAR . That's called honor Rogo-boy , a term you are unfamiliar with . Something you are devoid of since you have lied about my statements and make juvenile excuses when proof is required . I remember EVERYTHING I say , Liars like you dont , because liars can never remember their lies .

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            No, it's called calling a spade a spade.

            You just don't know how to keep up.
            So, you revert to personal attacks since you don't have facts.

      • Looking4Sanity

        You must have a vile little soul to say such things to people you don't even know. You're so contemptible I can't even muster pity for you.

            Yea calling you a LIAR , because that is what you are . Still haven;t backed up a word you said = no honor either .

            Of course you have. Where is your answer, and why don't you want to admit you're just a failed old troll that keeps struggling to pretend credibility?

    Team Chicago classifying it as workplace violence, denying survivors benefits, and continuing to pay al-Qaeda support Major Piss On his $6,000 monthly salary is not politicizing?

  • Justaguy

    Domestic violence, changing of the CIA lexicon, government paid leave, healthcare, protected of all reference to islam, ignoring of emails and self declared official and community presentations. Yep, the conservatives are quite the spin doctors… Oh and I forgot gun control, and the economic disadvantages that caused the conflict; it hasn't been mentioned yet, but you can be confident it will be said somewhere in time,… then maybe it won't.

  • kong.ming

    I wonder if limousine liberals ever lived in a neighbor so violent police do not respond, and if they do the police only make sure it's safe for the ambulance to scrape the victim off the street when shootings take place. What's their plan for when they hear gunshots, call 911 and get transferred to a police dispatcher who says if their's no body then just come to the station and file a police report in the morning.

    Bloomberg travels in armored cars with ex special forces bodyguards to events protected by the air force. Police who advocate further restrictions on citizen's ability to protect themselves arm themselves heavily and in some occasions highly political like blaming gang violence on Sarah Palin or outright criminals themselves.

  • clarespark

    There is even more to say about the "liberal" (i.e., collectivist) response to the massacre. Jumping to conclusions, as usual, many comments attacked the very notion of the lone individual as a murderous type. I wrote about that here: http://clarespark.com/2012/07/24/the-cracked-and-…. "The cracked and cracking loner as mass murderer." Does that have anything to with such archetypal characters as Captain Ahab? You betcha.

  • ebonystone

    It's very revealing to consider the cases — like Aurora and Columbine — that the Left chooses to use for propaganda for its causes, and the cases it chooses to ignore.
    For example there are the cases of Major Hassan — 13 victims — and of Muhammad and Malvo — 10 victims — and various other Moslem attackers. Seems to me a case could be made that Islam needs to be controlled in this country, at least as much as guns need to be controlled.
    Then there are the cases of John Gacy — 33 victims — and Jeff Dahmer –17– and Wayne Williams — 25 to 30. Sure looks like there's a big homosexual problem, surely we need strict federal control of homosexuals to prevent further tragedies like these.

  • clarespark

    In my view, the collectivist assault upon James E. Holmes has been delivered as an attack on the lone individual as such. I wrote about that here: http://clarespark.com/2012/07/24/the-cracked-and-…. It is way too soon to draw conclusions about the psyche of this young man, who may be psychotic. See http://clarespark.com/2012/07/24/the-cracked-and-…. "The cracked and cracking loner as mass murderer." It is a familiar archetype, much beloved by "liberals.".

  • clarespark

    The press reports frequently incorporated the massacre into the "loner" diagnosis. I decode that here: http://clarespark.com/2012/07/24/the-cracked-and-…. "The Cracked and Cracking Loner as Mass Murderer."

    • Amused

      "decode " ? What did you decode ?

      • clarespark

        First I should apologize for the multiple postings of the same item. My computer didn't show that they were posted. Second, I decoded the "loner" archetype that has been applied both to real psychotics and to Prometheans. The essay explained that in detail. What is your problem with the word "decoded" Amused? If you have any questions about what I wrote, do tell. I can answer any question about the dread "rugged individual" said by collectivists to typify American national character.

        • amused

          I asked , what did you decode regarding this shooter . A loner ? yes , yes , and ?

          • Amused

            Many great minds have been "loners " , many normal people are "loners " , it is a matter of common preference or possibly a congenital thing like autism in varying degrees /. Ahab's beef was with God . He had one of those " From Hells Heart I strike at Thee " moments ,which brought about the destruction of himself ,his ship and crew .[save for one ] . When a man resorts to an action like that of Holmes , there is a psychosis involved , and I doubt anyone will ever pinpoint the moment in his life's experience that predisposed him to such an act . It would leave one to believe , that if not his academic failure, then another inevitable "trigger " would have resulted in the same , possibly somewhere else , or had an interupting circumstance come about in this plan . [ something as ignominious as a flat tire . He did Plan Though .How should dashed dreams affect normal human minds ? What was the purpose of the body armor ? To survive ? Or to prolong his act for as long as possible before being killed himself ? The emotion involved was unbridled anger and hatred , but of what ? No One will ever outsmart crazy .

    • amused

      Clarespark – was Holmes NOT a loner ? What is it you're really trying to say ?

      • clarespark

        He is being described as a loner, and and numerous persons, incuding some that I respect, have described him as "cracking" or "cracked." My purpose in the blog was to describe a "type" of individual in fiction who are held to be crazy by persons whose philosophy of social relations is collectivist, and hostile to "individualism" as such. I have no opinion as to Holmes's mental states, although recent leaks suggest that he is indeed a paranoid schizophrenic. I was more interested in the near consensus among "progressives" that Melville's character Captain Ahab is a monomaniac and mass murderer, while privately agreeing that Melville himself was a loner and a Captain Ahab.

    For catsake stop calling this a "tragedy" already. A tragedy is a daycare bus crashing into a nursing home. This, as Jeff Cooper said of 9/11, is rather an atrocity. At least no one has referred to Holmes as "the gentleman". Not yet, anyway.

    • clarespark

      No, the word tragedy is from classical Greece, and refers to the fall of a hero, felled by hubris. In the Greek context, that meant someone who defied the Fates. Such a hero is often called the tragic hero. No hubris, no fatal flaw.

    Leftists are neither liberal, nor progressive; they’re better describes as statists or socialists, or more kindly as victims of brainwashing. Luckily, Americans have the second amendment to guarantee their natural right of self-defense against criminals or terrorists, but also against a potentially tyrannical government.

  • Vermont Yid

    Yesterday, millions of gun owners in the USA killed no one.

    Had there been one or more legally armed citizens in the movie theater, the killing and wounding might have been stopped before it got to 12 and 58.

    If it's the job of the police to protect us citizens, then why have I never seen a cop in my home?

    If Pierce Morgan doesn't like Americans walking around with guns, why doesn't he just pack up and go back to Londonistan? And, by the way, "An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject."

    WHEN SECONDS COUNT THE POLICE ARE ONLY MINUTES AWAY!

    • Looking4Sanity

      Yeah. I have to laugh every time I hear some liberal like Bloomberg talk about the police "protecting" the public. That's not even in their job description any more. They're more like the sanitation department for criminals. They'll come and clean up the mess after everyone's run out of ammo and then ensure that the politically correct dupe gets assigned the blame. Cops are almost as useful as teats on a boar hog.

            You mean since I ATTACKED BOTH , dont you Rogo ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Not mouth to mouth. You can guess where they aim.

          • Amused

            LOL…handler ? Where did you serve Rogo ? At the water cooler ? C'mon what's one more lie to you ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Side stepping the question.

            How typical. But then drones aren't expected to think. And you don't seem to know how, so I'm thinking you are fitting right in at the troll farm.

          • Amused

            Still hjaven't answered Rogo-WHERE and WHEN did you serve your country ……YOU are the one sidestepping . I dont have a handler and neither do you , so lets get your nonsense out of the way , try to be a man and answer a simple question .

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            And you haven't answered about what other profiles you have used.

            So, I'd say you really aren't in a position to make demands about things.

            Oh, it must be hard being a hack troll.

          • Looking4Sanity

            Isn't it funny how liberals in general find it so easy to place demands on others? It must be that sense of entitlement they're born with.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            It's their emotional attachments to the 'participation' awards.

          • Looking4Sanity

            So, you're saying a false sense of pride and accomplishment causes it? I'm not entirely sure how that works…then again, I try not to venture too far into the liberal psyche. That's a dangerous voyage.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            When you venture from the facts as being unimportant, it's amazing how well the media can toy with your mind. And of course, how religions (sharia) can seem valuable.

          • Amused

            oh …it's a demand now ? I answered , I habe no other profiles , If you think I have please bring forth the tags .
            It's obvious you haven't served your country in any capacity other than being a chicken-hawk on the internet , and a lying one at that .
            LOL….Have Computer Will Lie " .

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            My my, so you don't run the failed profiles you have had in the past. And you're too much a coward to list them.

  • BS77

    Does anyone watch that totally boring Piers Morgan show? Better to watch paint dry.

      No , but I love the Number Robert Blake did on him .That piece may still be on You Tube …it was great watched it atleast ten times .

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        So you are easily amused?

        • Amused

          all depends , I love Blake , watched him in the little rascals , besides , if you dont know how to laugh in this world , you're gonna spend alot of time crying .

            Yawn, this is your cutting edge insult?

          • Amused

            Rogo-boy , you're getting worse by the post …"cutting edge insult " ??? Tell me Rogo , what asylum are you housed in ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Why do you think conservatives are housed in a plantation like the liberal left like to keep their drones?

          • Amused

            No Rogo-boy , people like YOU are usually housed in asylums for their own protection . Do they give you yuour crash helmet to preventy you from bashing your head against the wall ? Or were they too late ,and your brain is already scrambled ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            We don't need helmets on my side of the isle.

            What liberal plantation are you assigned to? Chicago or Detroit?

          • Amused

            you're babbling now Rog-boy

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            So, that would be detroit?

          • Amused

            C'mon Rogo-boy artificial patriot and liar that you are …When and where did you serve your country ?
            Gonna answer or just blurt out some more juvenile B.S. ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            There you go again. So much anger!

            How long ago has it been since I shredded you under your own profile?

          • Amused

            I guess you didn't huh Rogo-boy ? And my profile ? There's nothing there to shred liar ./
            No truth /no honor /no integrity …..that about sizes you up . Whenever you grow a pair , maybe yo can summon up the courage to answer …WHEN and WHERE did you serve your country ? Or are you one of those chicken-hawks ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            Profile? Which ones?

            To quote a great line "I don't see no stinkin profile…"

          • Amused

            Told you already , dunce -dont have one , now try to be a grown-up man and answer the question Robgo-boy …WHERE and WHEN did you serve your country ?

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            And when you answer on your profile backgrounds then you'll be in a position to make demands.

            Not really, but in a better position to make demands. You demand disclosure about things I don't make claims on, and I request disclosure on things you have made claims on.

            See the subtle difference mr troll?

          • Amused

            More diversions Roger , you're becoming hysterical now , gonna have a hissy-fit soon ? I've already answered your phony diversionary question . You wont answer because you are in fact a chicken-hawk , battle-experienced and pretending on an internet blog .

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            More diversion amused? You're still hysterical. And you still haven't given a list of the failed troll profiles you have run in the past.

    Read the book "News Twisters". Probably not still in print.

  • https://www.facebook.com/flynn.mcmahon Flynn McMahon

    I think I'm pretty conservative but I don't particulary want to toe any party line therefore I'd like to state that this idea that as long as we have a lot of concealed carry Rambos out there all the James Holmes' will be immediately taken care of lickity split is the biggest load of BS I have ever heard. I'm not against the 2nd amendment or against cc but let's be honest about the mentality of lot of people spouting off about how they would do this and that and "take care of business". I've lived in the West long enough to know that a high percentage of them are simply people who take their values from Steven Segal-type movies and just can't wait to try and kill somebody. If trained cops can't always get it right how do these bozos expect -except in thier own grandiose fantasies – to do the job right assuming they are in the right place.

    • Vermont Yid

      I don't watch "…Steven Segal-type movies…" and I'm not hoping to kill anyone. That said, the cops can't be everywhere to protect our assez when our lives are threatened. Soooo it's up to each of us to protect ourselves, our families, etc. If there had been even one legally armed citizen in that movie theater, Holmes might have been stopped before doing all the damage he did.

      As a law-abiding citizen, I have the right (remember the 2nd amendment?) to be armed. That means that I have the right to use deadly force should it be necessary.

      WHEN SECONDS COUNT, THE POLICE ARE ONLY MINUTES AWAY!

  • Ghostwriter

    Let me strip away the political nonsense. James Holmes was a demented lunatic who killed people simply because he wanted to. He should have been in a mental institution,not walking around doing what he was doing. That's all you need to know on this matter. I hope he gets the death penalty. He deserves nothing less.

    • mrbean

      Then you should agree that Trayvon Martin was a hating whitey negro thug who got himself killed when he brutally attacked an adult neighborhood watch who thought it strange that someone was walking not on the sidewalk but between the buildings. Maybe if his absentee old man and his mama had taught him some basic manners this would never have happend, and we would not have to listen to everyone's lies from the MSM. to the President to the negro lynch mobs to white wymons with a Kardasian syndrome for a black lover that "Trayvon beez a goot chile who beez stalk and kilt by dat awful racist white man."

      • Amused

          • rogo65

            Sure , no problem , post your name and verifiable address dunce and I'll post it . In the meantime it looks like YOUR handlers took care of Amused , so I had to re-up under an appropriate name . btw , no one dragged you into this , you inserted yourself .
            Abd what ? "puerile demad for personal information " ? Don't make me laugh ? Whether nor not you served your country is personal information ? …lol….yea I guess for a chicken hawk it is ? Adios chump

            As for you Rogo-boy looks like you two have the handlers , no surprise there , they enable morons like mr.bean to spew his racist crap , and backup TWO idiots like you and [still] looking4 [his ] sanity , and several other chicken-hawk -patriots , no wonder they try to silence me , because I wont walk lockstep with their views .

          • rogo65

            Nope , FPM is joined with other wordpress blogs , one thing is for sure , they blocked Amused because YOU two were getting hammered and were making fools of yourselves ….after all …there's other chicken -hawks on these threads to consider . No problemo I encounter the same on the Lefty Blogs and Islamic Forum were I'm public enemy #1 . Thank goodness gfior Dynamic IP's . All in all it was worth the trouble re-upping if not for anything ,but to expose you hypocrites TWO for what you are , liars and chicken-hawks . And uh …Rogo-boy , no need to fear answering that question , you've already answered it . Adios CHUMP [ S ]

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

            I hate to bother you with facts. But if you sign on to intense debate you can post here on this forum. Hello…. earth to what every recycled troll you are.

            And how do you define chicken hawks? Those who love this country and want it to be what the founding father's set up? Why would that be something you can use as an insult, unless you want some other form of failed government. In that case, why not just lay out what you do support so people here can see you for what you are.

          • rogo65

            How ? YOU . Besides you never said anything to me regarding this "new notion " that you speak of – "love of country " …Founding Fathers " . You chose instead to attack me because I exposed and criticized the hypocrisy of the author's article . /you're not a man of honor , you lied . If you hadn't wasted so much of your time doing that , and had read my posts you'd know exactly where I stand on any issue I have entered the discussion on . But you did not do that did you ? People who have the attention span long enoug to have read my posts know that A) I oppose islam B ) I am and have been since the day I was first able to vote NPA /INDEPENDENT /A CENTRIST . And THAT is the reason that you and several others here dislike what I have to say , I dont tow the line for Democrats OR Republicans / Conservatives OR Liberals PERIOD

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLNn2YflwNs Roger

        coming from a racist like you mr.bean , one who is the epitomy of the words crude , bigoted and obtuse ,I'd take your ignorant statement as compliment , for it ensures that in no way can said participants be connected to or associated with you or your warped racist routine .
