Monday Reads: Another Day filled with White Male Murder/SuicidePosted: October 2, 2017
Yet another set of excuses for yet another white man that just “snapped” while having the mental and physical ability to stockpile and use multiple automatic rifles. Said rifles were used to kill at least 58 people and injure somewhere in the range of 515 plus people.
I don’t get why they can’t just jump off a bridge instead of taking the women and/or children in their life with them or some group of innocent bystanders. It’s never enough for this subspecies of mass murderers. They’re angry over some concept of entitlement denied. They can’t face their lives so they kill and blame others. It’s the same day in and day out. Some times the body count is just a bit more spectacular than others.
The brother of the Las Vegas shooter said that he was a normal guy who must have ‘snapped’ before carrying out the worst mass shooting in American history.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Eric Paddock said that ‘something happened’ to make his brother Stephen kill 58 and injure 515.
Eric said that there was ‘absolutely no indication he could do something like this’ and said that Stephen had no political or religious affiliation.
He said: ‘He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something’
The usual right wing cesspools think he must be antifa or “Rachel-loving liberal.” So, they misidentify the dude. 4chan did it first, btw.
The right-wing news site Gateway Pundit also picked up these rumors as fact in a now-deleted article. That article’s URL was still the top result for Danley’s name on Google in the early hours of Monday morning. The headline, still visible in search results, and remaining on the first page of results for Danley when I ran my 9 a.m. search, read, “Las Vegas Shooter Reportedly a Democrat Who Liked Rachel Maddow, MoveOn.org and Associated with anti-Trump Army.”
And of course,it’s way too early to talk gun control.
LAS VEGAS GUN LAWS: OPEN CARRY, CONCEALED WEAPON, MACHINE GUNS ALL LEGAL IN NEVADA
As a matter of fact, “Gun stocks up after Las Vegas shooting”.
Shares of Sturm Ruger () were up 6%, while American Outdoor Brands ( ), the company formerly known as Smith & Wesson, gained nearly 7%. Both stocks have tended to rally in the immediate aftermath of mass killings, which sadly have become more routine.
These companies massively fund the NRA.
You can read the gory–and I DO MEAN GORY–details here at CNN if you’re so inclined. I’m going to grade papers and hug on my dog.
This is all I’m up for today.
Oh, don’t forget our pathetic POTUS who has now bailed on his trip to Puerto Rico to head to Las Vegas instead. It’s just another one of those extraordinary “acts of evil” said the man incapable of empathy and basic human kindness.
