“The number of U.S. mass killings linked to extremism over the past decade was at least three times higher than the total from any other 10-year period since the 1970s, according to a report by the Anti-Defamation League,” the AP reports.
After two more mass shootings, Trump seeks to lay blame,
And he doesn’t like “white nationalist” attached to his name.
Seeking to find fault,
Trump opens his shibboleth vault,
And trots out mental illness, the internet and video games.
“All I know is that it’s all starting to feel like the same event — a Great Unraveling of America. The feeling only grew worse when I read that the authorities in El Paso believe some of the wounded may not go to local hospitals … because they’re so afraid of our immigration cops. It seemed like one more sign that conditions in this country — the violence, the fear, the embrace of racism and xenophobia from the highest levels, and the long slide into neofascism — have become intolerable. And yet — with the blood of El Paso and Dayton not yet dry — far too many are still tolerating this.”
OK, but watch Brian Kilmeades’s eyes at the 13-second mark, when Ainsley Earhardt begins holding forth about all the upsides of being killed in a mass shooting at church.
Day after the worst mass shooting in American history, Rep. Andy Holt (R-TN), is firmly standing behind his decision to give away am AR-15 semi-automatic rifle as a door prize at his next fundraiser, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports. Said Holt: “It has nothing to do with the style of weapon. It has everything to do with who’s behind the weapon.”
Marco Rubio seems to be rising in the polls,
But like any politician he can sound like a fool.
After the latest mass shooting,
He had us all hooting
When he tried to change the topic to “bomb control.”
