Into the Woods…
I suppose you could say the media is complicit in allowing Il Douche the best and broadest platform with which to spread his hate-mongering rhetoric. One of those is still more responsible than the other. Can you guess which one.
(And yes, I totally ignored Ramirez’s implication that the bomber and synagogue shooter were totally coincidental and had nothing to do with Il Douche. Not going to touch that BS. It’s bad enough I can smell it!)
What fault, Ramirez?
The shooter was only doing his best to, you know, protect us from The Caravan.
‘Our’ president has told us The Caravan was organized and paid for by Soros and Jews and Democrats and constitutes a National Emergency.
What else is a Patriot supposed to do?
Now, now, we don’t want anyone to feel that people should be responsible for their own actions. Do we? Not anymore.
2 + 2 = whatever you want it to be?, Mr. Ramirez?
Meanwhile, totally unrelated to trump’s inflammatory remarks, hundreds of armed “militia” are heading to the boarder to protect us from the invasion. Why is it that I find that a scarier issue?
The fault lies with those that vote against their own best interest.. and are inspired by fools.
While we believe in free will, we are strongly influenced by our environment. Alcohol and other drugs temporarily alter our brain chemistry and we can see the altered behavior. Tumors can alter the brain structure and can our behavior. Strong emotions based on the information can also alter our behavior.
No one has caused himself: No one chose his genes or the environment into which he was born. Therefore no one bears ultimate responsibility for who he is and what he does.
I believe that people should take responsibility for what they do. I believe that Trump should take responsibility for harming the country.
What a hoot!! Chucky is talking about free will in the midst of being propagandized by a social movement led by a sociopath that HE HIMSELF is party to. It doesn’t get any richer.
If Chucky has free will, how is it that he has been hoodwinked by a con man? How is it he believes the constant stream of lies? The answer is that he has CHOSEN ignorance, fear, fake news, bullying, racism, and violence.
McChuck is a parody of himself. Claiming free will as he himself has been massively influenced by the Liar-in Chief. Some free will, Chuck. You are now free to be a racist. Free to be fearful. Free to bully and cheat. Yes, free will to praise nice Nazis. Free will to lock up toddlers. Free will to insult our allies and praise dictator. Yes Chucky, you are as free as a bird. You have not been influenced by the sociopathic psychopath. You were always free to reject violence. To reject bullying. To reject mentall illness. But you chose to follow, didn’t you? Your choice, Chucky. You own this man and the consequences of his actions.
You are free to choose truth, fact, collaboration, kindness, empathy, justice, fairness, reason, science, education and an ethical leader. But you didn’t. You chose fear and madness. You chose lies. You chose darkness. You chose evil.
Just like the MAGA Bomber and the murderor of Jews in Pittsburgh. Free. Free will.
Which shooter? There have been so many shooters.
Republicans don’t care about mass murder with guns at all because they get bribes from the NRA and arms makers.
The only way to get any sane gun law passed is to vote out every Republican.
How anyone that has lived in this world since the Columbine shooting can’t put the fact that massive news coverage of mass shooting causes more mass shooting is an idiot. These insane individuals crave attention and when they see the attention the press gives the shooter, you get more shootings.
^Is it attention-seeking or is it copycat? The moment of fame or the permission to shoot to solve problems? After all, some guy recently said it was OK to grope women because Trump said so…
Gee, Ramirez, why is it that we have laws restricting your freedom of speech in yelling “FIRE” in a theater? Your toon strongly implies that words don’t matter. No fault can be given to the guy yelling “FIRE”. Or “Shoot” or “JUMP” in those cases.
Ramirez has added very little to the discussion of these tragedies….
The shooter did not live in a vacuum. Although he bears all the legal responsibility, unscrupulous politicians and TV and radio talking heads helped to sway him with their fiery messages. The NRA enabled him as our country is awash in guns. And our culture—with its 24-7 parade of blood, violence, and gore (in the name of “entertainment”) on TV and in the movies is also partly to blame. NO shooter ever shoots alone.
“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, / But in ourselves. . .” William Shakespeare; Julius Caesar, Act 1, sc. 2.
TheMcChuck: So you believe you have free will and can choose your behaviour, do you? So if I take you to the top of the Chicago Tower and push you off, you can choose not to fall? And if you do fall, why?
Can we therefore conclude that you understand that human behaviour is subject to the principles of physics but you don’t yet understand how it is subject to the principles of psychology?
Hey! Have you all forgot the mass shootings that took place when all us young cowboys were watching countless TV westerns and movie westerns? Then going out with the other kids and bein’ heroes and taking out the bad guys with our cap pistols?
Oh wait, I don’t remember them either.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders made up the LIE that the media’s first response was to blame Trump. The truth is that Trump went right back to blaming the media and the Dems and the media refuted his BS. Ramirez is just repeating the SHS lies.
Find me a quote where the media says “it’s all Trump’s fault”. Idiotic quote.
Let’s see now. The Pittsburgh Killer said he didn’t like the caravan.
Now, who could have possibly given him the idea that the caravan was loaded down with bad, nasty people? MS-13 members coming to rape your wives and daughters? Disease carrying migrants? And Arab terrorists?
Who could have put those ideas in his head?
This time, let’s try to not make it the voters’ fault.
OK another Repuglican troll bot on the loose. Caring about your fellow human beings doesn’t make you a leftist. See Venezuela. THINK. Evaluate. VOTE for AMERICA!!!
The only “voter fault” for Trump lies with the secretive, appointed members of the Electoral College.
