Mutants and Crime

||Let’s see them try to spin this mutant
as a ‘white guy.’
My point here really isn’t to be snarky. It’s to point out that the MSM is always quick to point out white-on-black crime, but never black-on-white or black-on-black crime. Why? You know; the agenda of racism. Not that any of us know what the motive was in this tragic episode. And, no, I’m not comparing Zimmerman to this psycho; Zimmerman was defending himself — it was the media that tried to paint him as a ‘white man’ looking to kill a black man.
It wasn’t so long ago that a Black pundit claimed that all mass shootings were committed by whites. She conveniently ignored such killers as Colin Ferguson and the ‘DC snipers,’ et al.
Do a search on Google for something like, “mass shooters are all white” and you’ll find a slew of liberal tripe affirming that idea.
Frankly, mental illness isn’t confined to any one flavor of race or ethnicity. It can strike anyone — Gosh; if only we could figure out how and why and prevent it — and there’s little you can do to prevent a psychotic from doing something, well, psychotic. That doesn’t present an excuse to curtail the rights and liberties of the other 99.9% of the population that doesn’t have a screw loose.
Still, it will be interesting to see — once more factual details come out — how the MSM (Main Stream Media, almost totally liberally biased) spins all of this.
Update: According to one news source the shooter, Aaron Alexis, only came to the Navy Yard with a Biden endorsed shotgun. He obtained the other guns at the yard somehow. Maybe he broke into a weapons locker there, or took them from the MP’s he killed.
That, of course, isn’t stopping the usual suspects from demanding more gun control and, no doubt, banning “assault weapons,” which in this case would mean from military bases.
Another update: David Frum is an asshole.
