Blame

So far I have seen the following people/groups blamed for the shootings in Tuscon:

  • Sarah Palin
  • Rush Limbaugh
  • The Tea Party
  • “Uncivil” people
  • Fox News
  • Glenn Beck
  • Sean Hannity
  • Bill O’Reilly
  • Republicans
  • Conservatives
  • Conservative Republicans
  • Libertarians
  • Gun Nuts
  • 10th Ammendment Supporters
  • Birthers
  • Michelle Bachman
  • John Boehner
  • Newt Gingrich
  • Jan Brewer

And I’m sure the list is very incomplete and will continue to have additions in the weeks and months ahead.

I’d like to point out two things.  First, this kid obviously had mental illness problems.  That is all over his background, including the fact that two different schools refused to let him attend without a mental exam and clearance.  He apparently existed on pot, which is always a good thing to help schizophrenia (NOT!).  In the past, we used to segregate those who were a threat to themselves and others from regular society in order to protect the sick person and society.  However, our twisted, politically correct America now puts everybody at risk rather than possibly, maybe incarcerate 1 single person who might not be as sick as everybody else.  Well, the “we don’t need asylums” people have lots of blood on their hands.

And secondly, there is one person/group that I know is responsible:

Liberal Fairy Tales

The modern take on some old ideas:

  • The socio-economically advantaged young woman and the pea
  • The visually challenged duckling and how stereotypes hurt us all
  • Goldilocks and her hurtful imperialist exploitation of 3 harmless bears
  • The pigmentally challenged lady and 7 vertically challenged men who are still fully capable individuals in their own right
  • The capitalist explotation and degredation of Rumpelstiltskin
  • Rapunzel and the negative body images of today’s young women
  • Sleeping Beauty and the environmentally unfriendly use of apples
  • The old woman who lived in a shoe and was deined access to proper pregnancy counseling and health care
  • Hansel and Gretel and their lack of compassion for women of a certain age
  • Jack and Jill and the heartbreaking lack of government supported health care for uninsured individuals who fall down
