The Blame Game, Redux

Discussion in 'Pandora's Box' started by auntiesocial, Aug 6, 2008.

  1. Last month a man entered a Unitarian Church in Tennessee and began shooting up the place. Sadly, it was a rather familiar episode of violence repeated by now in every State of the Union. But one thing is mysteriously missing from the carnage: Blame

    Sure, we can blame the shooter, and will, but there is always an out-lying reason for madness, right?

    Shouldn't there be pitchforks in route to Rockstar Games for releasing their latest version of GTA?--like http://www.theinquirer.net/en/inquirer/news/2006/09/27/gta-blamed-for-triple-murder>here and http://www.actiontrip.com/rei/comments_news.phtml?id=080508_4>here
    And where the fuck is Marilyn Manson? Surly, like Columbine this is all his fault!<O:p</O:p
    No doubt there are some rappers somewhere we can string up for sending this guy over the edge.....<O:p</O:p
    <O:p</O:p
    <O:p</O:p


    ..........but wait

    The shooter was an old guy. He was a "christian". He didn't play video games, or listen to rap or Manson. HOWEVER, he did listen to right-wing hate radio like Bill O'Liely, Hannity, and Michael Weiner(Savage). He bought their books and had scores of 'em, he bought their propaganda, he repeated their hatful words to police investigators when he explained he was there to kill the people who “voted for liberals and gays”, and he followed through on their not-so-veiled threats against what he (and they) pretend is the problem in America: libr0lz.<O:p
    <O:p
    Sean Hannity once said liberal Democrats should be tortured and killed<O:p></O:p>
    mAnn Coulter's problem with Tim McVey was that he didn't blow up the NY Times building after OK City!<O:p></O:p>
    Bill O'Liely asked for North Korea to bomb San Francisco<O:p></O:p>
    <O:p</O:p
    So if Ice-T, Marilyn Manson, GTA, Janet's titty,etc.etc.etc can be blamed when ever some maladjusted spoiled suburbanite shoots up home room. Shouldn't hate mongers be held accountable for the words they write and scream into microphones, too?<O:p></O:p>
    <O:p
    And before you get mad at me for deflecting blame from the actual perpetrator, remember who started this blame game. I'm good with Mr. Adkisson rotting away in a dark cell forever, but he -–being of an obviously limited mental capacity-- didn't come up with this War on Liberals by himself. Social conservatives can't have it both ways; either social influences can cause violence and be held liable for said violence, or it can't. They say it can, and if so there exist a clear social influence on Mr. Adkisson, right-wing hate mongers. <O:p></O:p>
