They are normal people following a wicked ideology, often with their hearts closed but their minds wide open
Mr. Trump, with a somber face, read a long declaration against mass shooters calling them names. Not only does this not help — it’s false.
Hitler wasn’t stupid. He wasn’t crazy. He wasn’t a monster. Rather, he was a normal human being who chose to act on a heinous philosophy.
Also, don’t insult people with mental illness, dementia, rare body shapes or low intelligence. They’re completely innocent of such mass murders!
Besides, what value have “sincere” words by a notorious con artist?
Also, his warm, fierce, and sanctimonious (Trump is a known atheist) words are just empty pronouncements to distract from the fact that he has widely peddled in racism and is bought by the arms producers.
To blame the media’s “fake news” for the gun violence is a chutzpah comparable to a fox reprimanding chickens for not being vegan.
“Hate has no place in America” said the unrepentant chief hatemonger.
Worse, his feigned religiosity on prayer and God are dog whistles to White supremacists that he was obligated to reel off all these presidential words with a serious face but doesn’t mean any of it.
Worst, just know that the evil belief that sprouts racism is the same as the assumption that lies at the basis of this presidential condemnation.
All people are of equal worth. The racist says, there are normal people (us) and more primitive races and religions (them). This is very similar to pronouncing that there are normal people (us) and evil people (them).
Not true. Those who committed immoralities are not created morally inferior — they opted to act hurtfully. If they were inherently evil, they’d be innocent. Rather, they must be condemned because they chose evil.
To promise a swift death penalty for mass shooters is yet another sign of denying the humanity of them, trying to set them apart as subhuman.
Thus, the president also set himself apart from the murderers. But, though he never commissioned racist murder, his racism promoted it.
(The second murderer was a self-described anti-White supremacist, a lefty and a Satanist. Competing? Let’s see if I can kill more people? I do not think that hating everybody and killing anyone are forms of social justice.)
