Well, you knew this was going to happen.
Twelve bodies were still lying on the floor of the Navy Yard cafeteria and the blood-feasting demagogues gleefully pounced: Has-been “Happy Days” actor Henry Winkler, Senators Diane Feinstein and Richard Blumenthal, Piers I-make-Brits-look-like-bitchy-little-girls Morgan—even our cold fish President who dismissively sniped about “yet another mass shooting” before launching into a tone-deaf partisan attack on Republicans.
GUNS GUNS GUNS. It’s your fault, gun owners! Your fault, NRA! Your fault, you dang Second Amendment!
Ayyyy, Fonz, I have a suggestion for you and your disgraceful cohorts. SHUT UP.
Forget scoring political points. Forget all the two-bit speculations blaming video games, guns, workplace discrimination, yada yada yada…
You want to blame something or somebody? Try Aaron Alexis. He was a crazy man on a crazy mission who woke up one morning, had a cup of coffee, loaded his weapon and made the drive across the Potomac to the Navy Yard with the sole purpose to blow away as many people as possible before going down in a blaze of maniacal glory.
He was, pardon my lack of political correctness, a madman. And like the madmen who’ve come before and will again, attributing rationality to their deranged behavior is folly.
Coulda-shoulda-woulda doesn’t help—at least not now. For Alexis, severe mental illness, lack of family and community support, violent video games, knowledge and access to weapons, and military security clearance converged to fuel a deadly perfect storm.
Yet, this pesky fact isn’t what leftists in the media want to hear. Blaming the killer won’t benefit Democrats hoping to steer attention away from Obamacare, Syria, the White House scandals, and laggard economy.
There will be plenty of time in the months ahead to assess how to better detect and prevent mentally unstable individuals from committing future atrocities. But not now. Not when the horror is so raw that reasoned reflection is impossible.
But that won’t happen.
So, brace yourself. The Leftist ghouls are just getting started…
