Three shootings in less than three days and people are focusing on what’s really important: being right. “It’s the gun’s fault!” “It’s the shooter’s fault!” “Well I blame Trump!” “I blame the liberals!” I even saw one person who decided to bring abortion into the argument for some fucking reason. I’ve given my opinion on why these shootings happen. Take from that post what you will.
The bottom line is that they’re not going to stop. We continue to give more airtime to the shooters and are more concerned about their motives than we are the victims. “A child that was only two died in the shooting, but let’s talk some more about why this person committed this shooting.” Who gives a fuck? He’s a piece of shit. Stop giving him the recognition.
That’s what’s wrong with America. We praise those we shouldn’t while mocking those we should. We no longer strive to be better. We strive to be famous or infamous. It’s just a matter of being well-known, it doesn’t matter what we’re well-known for anymore. No one cares that you fed millions of hungry people in a matter of days. Kill a few million people in a matter of days and people want to give you the cover of Rolling Stone and are trying their best to get a jailhouse interview with you.
I hate to sound pessimistic about the situation because it’s terrible when these shootings happen, but Americans are more concerned with being right about why they happen and screaming louder than the opposition instead of joining together to fix the problem. For Americans to claim to be the “greatest nation on earth” they sure don’t seem to give much of a fuck about the atrocities like this that happen in their country on a daily basis.
I guess all I have to say is continue to sit back and blame each other, point fingers, and do absolutely nothing since that’s obviously your idea of doing something.
