Those beautiful babies were not only tortured for up to an hour and 20 minutes before being slaughtered. They were also forced into being the only rational adults in this entire unforgiveable scenario. We should cry tears of deep shame.
The subject is gun deaths in America. The issue is a complex one. There is no single solution, and insisting there is just ensures and perpetuates failure in our search for a fix. But the subject is gun deaths. So, just as a logical matter, don’t you think the word “gun” would at least come up in, you, know, casual conversation? I watched Greg “Owned” Abbott sell his soul to the Gun Loonies and NRA Friday afternoon in Uvalde. He not only declined, he steadfastly refused to acknowledge that guns have any role in gun deaths. That’s like maintaining that hydrogen and oxygen play no role in water. Or that sugar and lard play no role in donuts.
Once again, let’s include truth, facts, honesty and reality among the casualties of this disgusting and violent pandemic. Yes, I used the word “pandemic.” This is a national public health issue. How is it not? Gun violence is now the leading cause of death for American children. Did you read what I just wrote? Gun deaths are now the leading cause of death for American children. And we’re told guns play no role?
It’s this detachment from reality—this cynical, evil, deliberate detachment from reality—that most enrages me as we await next week’s inevitable school shooting.
The following is not an exaggeration or a figurative assertion. It is a literal and quantifiable statement. These soulless sellouts love guns more than they love children. I said they love guns more than they love children. They personify guns and engage in anthropomorphism (Look it up, mouth breathers.) They imbue guns with human qualities including souls. They regard them as family members. They clearly develop sexual attractions to guns. (Wow. That would then be incest, right?) They worship—in every sense of the term—guns. They elevate guns to religious status. I’m wrong? Then why do we see so many political ads in which the word “Bible” is followed immediately by “bullets”? Why do we hear “guns” immediately followed by “God”? Where’s the link? The only common denominator is pious and intentional dishonesty.
Don’t tell me I’m wrong. I’m right. Your utter and intentional detachment from observable reality is not a “rebuttal.” Nor is just shooting me a possum-grinning emoji as a counterargument.
You have no argument.
You have no soul.
You have no decency.
And you are cowards.
And you share your genus and species with ostriches.
And please don’t ever tell me you are “pro-life.”
You love guns more than you love children. Your deliberate actions and deliberate inactions prove that.
Gaslight is the only form of energy available on the Texas grid.
