Let's not pretend this place wasn't already a sewer long before this thread ever existed.

This is actually mild in comparison to the majority of "sewage" we've had to deal with over the last 2 odd years.

And now all of a sudden everyone is taking the high road?

Yeah, no.

If these were some MAGA kids, there would undoubtedly be mutlpe threads with the same old tiresome broad-stroking rhetoric. Not to mention it would be dominating the MSM.

Funny that I didn't even hear about this shooting until I opened this thread. Wonder why that is...

Isn't that the current theme?

Now everyone gets to take the high road, and hey, that's admirable! I admire those that stay above the fray! Not that I'm one of them or even pretend to be but I do admire them.

Then we have those that "shift lanes" from low road to high, based upon the situation.

The media is a perfect example.

There is very little talk about this shooting. The MSM has taken the "high road".

Now a MAGA hat wearing person will end up jaywalking or not pay a parking fine next week and all hell will break loose and CNN will have to do another series on Trump's penis and how evil Barr is, but until then. . . . . I guess I'll be the only one throwing mud.

I'm confused why so many people choose to spend their time in a quote SEWER.

It says more about those that choose to linger in such a horrible place than it does about the place itself.

Why settle for throwing mud, when you're in a sewer?

You really wonder why that is?

Probably because you have two people doing the shooting who are from groups it's politically incorrect to associate any wrongdoing of this sort with. So the press can't use this story it contradicts their narratives in too many ways, just like they don't talk about the many mass shootings carried out in the hood by gang members.

That's what I respect about you Cowboy. You're consistent and you stay true to yourself.

For a second I thought maybe the MSM just forgot to mention it because they were too busy or something.

Well, of course, it was far more relevant to talk about old news on Donald Trump.

The number of young people involved in these mass shootings are increasing and schools are often where these incidents occur. But why? Everyone wants to find some kind of reason for this but there are no reports on what motivates these shooters when they live and are caught. I often think bullying amplified by social media may be the reason when I hear about these rampages, however . . .

I was having a visit with a conspiracy minded buddy of mine today when we heard about it on the local TV news at noon. He immediately brought up how pretty much all the most popular online video games are 1st person shooter style games. He introduced me to Fortnight when it was in beta version, I guess it has become hugely popular since then, and used that as one example.

For some reason I have totally ignored the idea that violent video games are likely connected to violent behavior in today's youth. I guess I've heard so many people defending video gaming that I blank the idea out. I know that as a kid myself, some 40+ years ago, the "3 Stooges" and "Big Time Wrestling" were bad influences, but nothing like the violence involved in these shootings. I was in my 20s when I had access to video games that were 1st person shooter, like Castle Wolfenstein, and there were some sick ones back then if you could get them. Later, I often enjoyed Postal II. None of that was very realistic or online. It does make me wonder if there is any merit to the idea that realistic online video games could be one of the main causal influences of these incidents.

ETA: Our conversation made me think about how it would have gone down back in my old school days. If you wanted revenge, you'd target your person of interest. You'd jump them after school and beat them down or more likely you'd vandalize or steal something they own that they place value on. The idea of bringing a gun to school and shooting up the place never entered our minds ever.

Life has lost its value. When we teach our children that disposing of life is as easy as visiting the local PP or visiting a doc to have it all end (euthanasia, doctor assisted suicide), why should we expect them to get the message that anyone's life is a thing of rare value to be respected? Then you also have a society that is increasingly narcissistic where all that matters is you and how you feel. Now add in the empty self-esteem culture where everyone gets a trophy instead of accomplishments being real things you work to earn, even if it means that some kids will never realize them.

What I find ironic about this incident is, it was all over the local news last night, and even on the national news...UNTIL...it was determined there was a transgender and a trump-hating democrat involved...THEN...the story just vanished from the media altogether! This morning, there was nothing about it, like it never happened!!

Why is this??????

Note - That's a rhetorical question...we all know why this is!!

Answer: Left wing media bias and TDS!!

Oh, and if you think I'm making much ado about nothing...well, there was a much bigger story taking place here last night, a much more news worthy story, which should have garnered far more attention. This was the Mayoral election, which just so happens came down to a run-off. The election was nowhere to be found, but this story was all you could find on the local news...then POOF!

HMMMMmmmmmmmm!

The point is, the media and social media has spent so much time and energy associating these tragedies to certain ideological attributes that when it flies against their scripted narrative, then it no longer becomes a story.

Sad part is, it's a horrible story, a senseless and terrible tragedy.

Two sick people tried to kill others. Only one died in this mindless act of horror, but it cannot be discussed because the media would have to admit that it's not one specific ideology doing this.

Their problem and the problem with social media is that people get so invested with identity politics that any attack on an aspect of an ideology is seen as an attack on them.

They take each affront personally.

Nuts are nuts, except maybe in the transgender person in the article. People who are like that are attracted to far right and far left factions.

I think this is floating away in the press due to it not having the impact that it should. I think it was very weird that less then a day before people were worried and getting ready for a gun related false flag event, then this happened.

I said it years ago, and I'll repeat it now: "the Imperialists don't care about you. A group of children at school, a religious center holding services, people at a mall are all the same to them. We are nothing but an ends to a means for them"

I'm not saying that this event didn't happen. It did happen, but clearly it was planned by someone or some group. I'm wondering who started the rumors about a false flag event taking place before this happened, and if they had any connections to the people behind this shooting?

And conversely when the picture does fit or seems to, they attack everyone they perceive as being linked to that ideology as if they pulled the trigger.

I literally just turned on the tv then and CNN were in the middle of reporting on the story and praising the guy that tackled the shooter as a hero.

Mods, before I start, I know this is touchy with all sorts of issues attached, if you want to trash can this, then no hard feelings.



Okay!


The media won’t tell you this, but the two killers who shot up a Colorado high school were liberals. One was transgender, the other a registered Democrat, and both were Trump haters.

The two shooters who rampaged through a K-12 STEM school located in Douglas County were both liberals. Devon Erickson, 18, and a younger student who police first thought was a boy but later found to be a girl, were taken into custody after the shooting.

The named shooter, Devon Erickson, shows all the signs of a left-wing anarchist, Heavy reported.


Can we finally say, NOW. . . that the extreme hatred that the left has for the rest of us has caused bloodshed and death?

The irrational madness that has overtaken about a third of our country has caused death.

It's not enough just to beat up old men or children if they wear MAGA hats, no!

Now they have to start killing!

It's only just the beginning, in my opinion.


And any factual evidence of any of that, or is it just more pathetic infantile crap that is slushing through ATS at the moment?
