Here we are again.
Officials are calling this case “domestic terrorism” due to some tats the alleged shooter had on his body. A word to the pants-wetting, fear-mongering, fucked-in-the-head white folks who think that people of color are the reason this country is sliding down Shit Mountain and therefore, need to be obliterated from the face of the Earth with the help of high-powered weaponry — If you’re gonna go after people wearing turbans because you believe they’re responsible for your shitty lot in life and the September 11, 2001 attacks as well as the subsequent wars, DO YOUR HOMEWORK. The differences between Sikhs and Muslims are vast. And the similarities (peace, love & understanding) are not all that surprising. There are radicals in both religions, and in fact, in ALL religions.
Allow me to essplain one more time: Sikhs did not orchestrate and carry out 9/11. Radical Muslims did. Just because men from both religions wear turbans does not make them one in the same.
Once again, this country is witness to yet another senseless shooting. Once again, we will mourn, hang our heads in sadness and pray for the victims’ families, their communities and for ourselves. Once again, our elected officials will fail us all because they’re scared shitless of the NRA and hide behind the outdated Second Amendment. The shrugging of shoulders and “Oh well” attitude over the “Well, the right to own guns is in the Constitution” is tired and cowardly. As far as I’m concerned, gun control shares the third rail of politics with social security as the policy that no one wants to touch. Don’t know about you, but I’m a wee bit tired of guns having more rights than human beings.
So paranoid 30-something white guy, while you’re ordering your 6,000 rounds of ammo on the Internet, do a few more keystrokes and learn about the folks you’re pissed off at. Here’s to hoping your computer turns into a mirror.
