It's difficult to remain solemn and respectful in the wake of
yesterday's newest shooting at Fort Hood that claimed four lives and
injured 16 others. Certainly, the tragic subject matter doesn't exactly
readily lend itself to satire and snark.
That's why we have
people like Pat Dollard and Dana Loesch, "people", for want of a better
word, who sally forth, heedless of social conventions by going where no
wingnut has gone before, contemptuous of the Obama-era czars of basic
Because, according to former talent agent Pat
Dollard (Breitbart's Big Government, Big Hollywood, Big Douchebag, etc),
we should murder all the Muslims over this before the identity of the
shooter has even been ascertained. Steve Douchey of Fox and Friends With
Benefits wasted no time blaming Obama
for the Fort Hood shooting within the first 24 hours, even going as far
as quoting a mouth-foaming right wing moron like Gateway Pundit who
gave Douchey his talking points for the day like a moth-eaten Karl Rove.
Point in fact, the shooter was no more Muslim than the President was to
blame for this. The alleged shooter's name was initially reported as
being that of Army Specialist Ivan Lopez, an Iraq war veteran who served
four months in Iraq and was being treated for Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder. So, if you want to blame a Commander in Chief for this, look
no further than George "Don't Burn the Oil Fields" Bush.
course, it took Dana Loesch no time flat to show what a class act she
was by showing more sympathy for her fellow gun clutchers who won't
lose their guns over this than the 20 victims of this latest Ft. Hood
shooting. Cristina Hassinger weighed in on Loesch by saying... Well, why
don't I let the principals speak for themselves?
Undeterred, Dana then made herself the victim in true right wing
fashion after she got into it with TBogg, who put the results up at his
place, Panic in Funland
After sniffling that SHE was the one being harassed on Twitter by the
daughter of the slain Sandy Hook principal "for bring(ing) the victims
into this", the loathsome Loesch really let TBogg have it between
the eyes, uh, somehow, for something only she can tell us.
O, the inhumanity. O, the inanity.
So, the moral of the story, kiddies, is that it's always the black
guy's fault no matter what, we should slaughter every Muslim in America
for something a Latino does to people they don't even know and right
wingers should be allowed to attack whomever they want then whine about
being swarmed by the blue meanie birdies on Twitter when their targets
hit back. And feeling persecuted is sure a strange tack to take
considering loonies like Loesch have almost all the guns and ammo.
And every shooting becomes a referendum on the rights of gun ownership
whether or not the black guy said he wants to take away your guns. The
running theme in the gun control debate is that on the far right, more
sympathy is shown for gun owners, even those carrying out these crimes
(Yeah, Zimmerman, I'm looking in your direction) than for the innocent
victims of these crimes. And the fact that eludes these cordite-huffing
psychopaths is it's not us gun control proponents they have to worry
about but fellow gun-clutchers like themselves.
You know, Wayne LaPierre's "good guys with guns."
