Crazy is as crazy does. You're trying to shoot kids in the face I really don't care why you are doing it.
 
2013-12-16 11:28:06 AM  
small but important correction: I don't care why you think you're justified in doing it.
 
2013-12-16 11:31:07 AM  
As facts come in, the desire to connect shooters to their political ideologies quickly erodes, as the same anti-depressant taking, left-wing, occultist profile emerges.

Okay. I don't normally read Infowars articles, but I think I'll make an exception for this one.

For the lulz.

While the news should definitely not speculate without facts, only one party has a fetishistic attachment to firearms, so you can see why their minds might have lead them, incorrectly, in this case, to that assumption.

Really, however, I don't care why a mentally ill person acts out, I care about how to help them so they don't act out.

Nobody said that all mentally ill people are on the political right. What we said, correctly, was that all people on the political right are mentally ill.

Big difference.

Facts from Infowars? I mean, it's right there in their name. They have a war against information.

'Water the tree of liberty! Second Ammendment solutions! We came unarmed this time! Obama's gonna steal your guns! Put me under Sharnia law and I'll show off my second amendment! Surveyor marks for all!'

-shooting happens-

'Why are you all looking at me!? I'M the REAL victim here!'

Please, everybody, let's settle down! Conservatives are not the culprits behind every shooting that happens in America. They're merely the enablers.

Go and listen to a show from like 6 years ago...this guy is a fool..but he's turned that into 35million a year take home, so he has that going for him
 
2013-12-16 12:50:45 PM  
Well infowars said it so it must be true.


Whatever happened to "what does it mean?" Those links were always a trip and a half
 
2013-12-16 12:51:59 PM  
And then the facts start to come in

And by facts, we mean some kid's opinion.

And you know what?  You could prove that this latest killer was the reincarnation of Lenin, Max, and Che Guevarra, and you know what: I still want sensible gun control.  That's not going to change, conservatards.  Deal with it.
 
2013-12-16 12:59:36 PM  
Wait, so is this real unlike the Sandy Hook hoax?
 
2013-12-16 01:00:00 PM  
You can tell when a mass shooter's a right winger. They shoot up a Sikh temple to prevent Sharia Law from taking over, or some else similarly off.
 
2013-12-16 01:00:02 PM  
Politics aside, the media (and general public) try to fit the shooters into a neat little box, create a narrative, and spread misinformation.

Someone recommended Dave Cullen's "Columbine" on a Fark thread when Sandy Hook happened and I have to recommend here. At the very least, it does a pretty good job disputing the narrative that has followed the event.

It also does a pretty good job disputing some of the common cliches that people throw around after mass shootings (bad parenting, bullied, etc).

The Jared Loughner linked article actually says THIS:

How often have you witnessed a "tear partier," an anti-government activist or a conservative engage in any of the following behaviors, all of which are confirmed to have been conducted by Loughner.

FTFA: The same profile - occult obsessed, leftist mass murderers - can be traced back to countless others from Son of Sam, to the Night Stalker, to National Socialist Adolf Hitler.

Yes, celebrated leftists Son of Sam, the Nightstalker and Adolf Hitler.  Holy shiat....

I'll go out on a limb and say that people that "go crazy" and "start shooting up schools" are from every political stripe, roughly correlated to the percentages in the population.

If Info Wars reports that the Denver Post was scrubbing socialist and communist from his classmates descriptions of him in their articles, nobody will believe it.

Yeah, they're always thinking about them and can't shut up about them, and they invarioubly equate ownership of them with masturbation and penis size. Sounds like a real fetish, not the throwaway word often used but the actual dictionary definition, there.

You are talking about leftist democrats, right?

Fart_Machine: Wait, so is this real unlike the Sandy Hook hoax?


Now I know what "crisis actors" are and that these could very well be hoaxes since something and like such as.

Because infowars also thinks there are crisis actors here. And, really, that's why there's so many shootings in Denver. Most of those actors live there and it's easier to pour hydrochloric acid directly into your eyeballs than it is to believe infowars.
 
2013-12-16 01:07:53 PM  
Where "facts" here means "political right bloggers who attempt to link the shooter to the political left."

The great thing about being on the right is that the word "facts" can mean whatever you want it to mean.
 
2013-12-16 01:08:08 PM  
The goddamned media always tries to link shooters to the right, but we're here to do better by linking them to the left.

The guy was anti gun. You can read his rants on his facebook page.
He obviously wanted to sacrifice himself and his victims in the name of more gun control.
He wanted to be a martyr.

Its totally relevant.

Liberals are prone to violence. I get death threats every other thread.

Most of these spree shooters have been left leaning.

What do you expect of people willing to Cuisinart fetuses in the womb. You ever watch a sonogram of them dissecting a fetus with the abortion apparatus? The fetus doesn't seem to enjoy it. It looks quite painful.
