As to be expected, the mainstream media, bought and paid for by the Elite Class of these United States, is pimping the horror of the tragedy for all its worth. They are on record of wishing the regular people to be disarmed, helpless and dependent, so they are playing this to the hilt. Their unabashed wailing about the type of weaponry is ham handed and cloddish. As usual, they expect the majority of people to follow along. The NY Times this morning had "submachine gun" plastered in the title of the lead article. Naturally, when a drunk driver mows down a family, they go into great detail about whether the car was a hybrid, or if it was a diesel, or if it was front wheel or all wheel drive. The pathetic MSM is now not only going bankrupt, it is brazenly trying to control opinion with clumsy propaganda.
The call for 'more gun control' is the meme that the Power Elite wish to perpetrate. The CT shooting was in a 'may issue' state, and the school was a 'gun free school zone'. I see those signs saying 'gun free zone' and I wonder who they are for. It was impossible for anyone to defend himself, as all of the law abiding people were unarmed. The same thing happened in VA Tech a few years ago, and at Columbine HS in 1999. The push for 'more gun control' is as absurd as it is wrong. What more do people wish to control? John Lott has researched the effects of gun bans for years. He was originally a gun control advocate, but when he actually researched the topic, he found out that everything he had believed was wrong. His book, More Guns, Less Crime obliterates the the shibboleths that surround gun control. The founders had it right with the 2nd amendment. You are not free if you can't have private property, or the ability to protect that property. Your property begins with yourself, and if you are at someone's mercy to stay alive - you are not free. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Please notice - it says the "right of the people" and this amendment was seen fit to be second, right behind free speech.
Original post: Me: "and yet when I post about the 168 children killed by the Bush Obama drone attacks - nothing. Nada. Actually, that's not true. One person asked me to help them buy a rake in 'Farmville'."
MRM: it's all horrible...all of it and us. we create this mess then scoff at it
Me: It is horrible Michelle, but we didn't create it and we aren't horrible. Everyone who liked or commented on this post, and the age range is from 14 to 40, is a good, peace loving person who is a non violent law abiding American. Some of them I've known since 1986. Some I met this Sept. Our Overlords, the Elite who are parasitical and despicable, use events like these to rip freedoms away from regular folk, get us to bicker amongst ourselves, and have a Corporate Media Monolith to disseminate their message. Notice how every 'tragedy' is used to assault the Bill of Rights. It is 'they', not 'us' who needs to be ignored and rejected.
MRM: We ridicule, persecute, ignore ppl who are "not normal". We allow and praise the media when they do what they r doing. We herald the shooter, bicker like u said, and then continue as if nothing happened. How r we part of the solution? If we r not, what does that make us?
Me: I think we need to teach the younger people a few things. Independent thinking is at top of the list. Right behind it is the fallacy of authority. People do and think what they're told. This tragedy is the perfect case. The NY Times had 'submachine gun' as part of its heading today. When a drunk driver mows down a family, is it on the front page? Why not? Do they say if it's a Prius or an SUV? Do they mention if it was a diesel engine under the hood? No, of course not as it's irrelevant. But most Americans are having the 'gun debate' decided for them via a corporate owned Elite propagating mainstream media and they don't even realize it. Thinking for yourself, doing research, questioning authority are things you should show everyone you know who is under the age of 18. That's what you can do. I have my opinions, and they come from lots of reading and a pathologically independent mindset. The Ruling Class would prefer that we watch 'Toddlers and Tiaras', shout "tastes great - less filling" at each other, and worship our Overlords (gov't). Sorry - those things aren't my style and I explain to young people that you can be different and think for yourself.
Here's John Lott going up against a bought and paid for MSM propaganda piece. Watch how Lott uses logic and reasoning, and MSM puppet uses emotion and scare tactics to try to marginalize and sway opinion:
