As predicted many people can not resist the urge to play amatuer shrink in the VT massacre. When I was on the way home I heard media dolts blame this on Science geeks who can relate to lab equipment, but not humans. I heard another talk show host rail about gun culture on a sports station.
Stereotypes are for idiots who often try to advance an agenda or bigotry.Many of us were looking for a Muslim angle. We have seen the media down play the ethnicity of the LA airport killer and the Seattle office tragedy.
The killer was of all things an English major.The student was an foreigner and could have absorbed gun culture via the drinking water. A certain nameless blogger announced that there was a Islamic connection. Now certain people are running with the Islam theory and it is absurd. The killer was an Enlish major and the name Ishmael just happens to be in Moby Dick. Maybe the killer was obsessed with Mellville
trying to read too much into the minds of crazy people is a mistake. Granted people with severe emotional problems often seek solace in religions especially Islam. Islam is fairly popular in prisons, but many death row inmates have become Christians. The most extreeme example is the head of the Butt Naked Brigade is now a minister. On a personal level we have seen a deranged person with a history of inexcusable behaivior claim he is becoming more Jewish. Many people bought this act, but I don't.
The far left likes everything to fit into its diabolical playbook. Yet if we try to grasp at straws we emulate everything wrong about the left.
On a more realistic note, sometimes young people just don't know how to deal with adversity. They come from schools where everyone's esteem is coddled. Yet the most important of life's lessons is how to deal with adversity. Many people like TMW call on their faith and it is a good thing. Others like myself are just so cynical and expect life to throw them a hand grenade every now and then. I got the promotion, what's the catch? Yet in my office when several of my younger coworkers got shafted some of them took weeks off. Life doesn't owe anybody a thing, and sooner or later everyone gets a raw deal. Learning to deal with it with grace builds charachter. I didn't make it the last time but at least all those people are out of my way this time.
I am tired of Commies blaming guns, American culture, Science students and video games every time someone steps off the deep end. The same people do backflips to white wash Islam every time some Islamo Nazis commit an act of barbarism. We may never know what that reference to Ishmael was. However to blame it on Islam, Melville
or the seventeen laws of commas are absurd.
Lets let the investigators do their job.
Bernie Sanders has announced he wants to sponsor a bill to propose a seven day waiting period before people can buy or read Moby Dick. Libraries will be required to keep it in a glass counter under lock and key. Parents will have to sign trauma waivers before it is assigned.
