Meh.  It's just standard for Republicans to blame anything and everything on people they don't like.
 
I've heard people trying to blame the killing on gun control, music and video games.
 
I am sure others are blaming it on environmentalists, welfare, liberals, minorities, Obama, Democrats in general, and probably the French.

Annulments. Newton Leroy MCPHERSON never actually said those first two, nor did he cohabitate with them, nor did he have any children with them. Never happened.

That's why I blame everything bad on Ricky O'Brian from the 3rd grade. God I hated his stupid face.

Gingrich said. "I don't know that going from communion to playing war games, in which you practice killing people is necessarily an improvement."
 
If you want practice killing people, join the Army. Killing avatars in video games is not the same at all.
 
How many people play CoD, or Battlefield, or Halo, or whatever (pulls 50 million out of ass) and how many of those commit mass murders? Clearly there is a direct link to the two. 
 
Gingrinch needs biatch slapped and a swift kick to the groin. No, reverse that. See, there is a direct correlation between lying hack P.O.S.s and my desire for violence.
 
2012-12-19 04:18:11 PM
Gingirch is such a good Catholic that he believes we should abolish the death penalty, take care of the poor and sick, and not fight wars based on lies and not torture people.
 
Right? Because those are the policies of the Catholic Church.

nah... that's not true... Catholics are not godless... in fact, they have more gods than the Romans did...

With Catholics suffering so any casualties during this current War On Christmas, couldn't Newt back off on his criticism a bit? They've suffered enough already.
 
2012-12-19 04:37:41 PM
Because godless liberals promote gun culture... oh wait.
 
2012-12-19 04:37:55 PM
Until we have an idea of the motives of the shooter fols should shut up.

That's standard for partisans from both parties.
 
2012-12-19 04:38:46 PM
Huckabee later sought to clarify his remarks, saying he did not believe increased prayer in school would have stopped the shooting from occurring. "I'm not suggesting by any stretch that if we had prayer in schools regularly as we once did that this wouldn't have happened, because you can't have that kind of cause and effect," he said.

Oh for fark's sake...what would Mike Hickabee know about cause and effect?
 
2012-12-19 04:38:54 PM
Nobody wants to do anything about the shootings. I don't understand what people are still talking about it.
 
2012-12-19 04:39:27 PM
I wouldn't be surprised if the murderer was a sociopath. Guess who else is a sociopath Newton...

It had nothing to do with the shooter's mental illness. Nope, not one bit.
 
Newt, shut up. You're not helping.

Corvus: Because godless liberals promote gun culture... oh wait.


In fairness, guns are a way of showing just how pro-life you are.

"I'm not suggesting by any stretch that if we had prayer in schools regularly as we once did that this wouldn't have happened, because you can't have that kind of cause and effect," he said. "But we've created an atmosphere in this country where the only time you want to invoke God's name is after the tragedy."

Huckabee: I am not saying that because obviously it would be a stupid thing to say, I am just 100% implying it!!!

I love how Republicans can even find what they believe as being stupid but still believe it anyway.

At least the catholic church actually believes in helping the poor. You know like that Jesus guy said

Strobeguy: I RTFA. Where did it mention anything about Catholics?


It didn't. But the point is that he is saying it's because people are godless but the shooter was Catholic.

He also went after "Natural Born Killers," Oliver Stone's 1994 movie about two mass murderers, saying it had no redeeming social value. "How can you possibly justify dehumanizing people to that degree and what do you think it does to young people who watch it over and over again?" he asked. 
 
....does Newt know what year it is?
 
2012-12-19 04:44:32 PM

Thanks, I wondered why he stuck his nose into this.
 
2012-12-19 04:48:36 PM
So remember according to Newt:

Playing video games/watching movies with violence - "Godless culture of death. Leads to killing people"
Taking real guns and shooting targets that are in the shape of people - "Pro-life love of God. Leads to respecting of all life"
 
2012-12-19 04:49:36 PM
It's true. When you remove God and allow for a secular life filled with evil things called intelligence and choice, society can only decay in violence and hatred.
That's why the Taliban way works so well.

gregory311: Catholics not mentioned at all in the article, subtard.


If:
A is B (person B is godless)
B is C (person B is a Catholic)

A is C is too much of a mental leap for you?

Maybe he needs to watch the farking movie again, this time with the disk in the player, the TV on, the sound turned up, and while facing the screen. If he had done any single one of those the FIRST time, then he would have figured out what the movie is actually about.

And I agree with the poster upthread; way to stay chronologically relevant there, Newt. That was almost 20 years ago, is that REALLY all you've got? Can't wait to hear what you think about the impact of Operation Desert Storm.
 
2012-12-19 04:51:24 PM
I'm surprised he didn't blame it on the fact that there weren't any adult men at the school.

Was going to say...Newt is about as delusional and unapologetic as a sociopath gets. I'd really like to know what single shaky element in his brain is barely stopping him from going on a shooting spree.

No shiat, I lol'd at that. I just caught my kids watching The Human Centipede 2 (apparently they've also seen the first) on a laptop, Newt needs to update his derp a little.

Well, they DO have a point in that article...mass shootings ARE the price we pay,over and over again, in order to be able to keep King George III out of our homes.

He's doing what old bands do - releasing an older hit on a newer album, to juice sales. In 1994, you could say that NBK was the reason Teenage McWhitey #57915 shot up his school and get a week's worth of airtime. Newt's living in the past; an appropriate place for a history professor.
 
// if only we could make him archaeologically relevant somehow - he'd get his wish
