As we go on a media blitz with the "deadliest massacre in US History", there is so much coverage it is almost as if we are watching a Beyonce promotional tour.
Isn't it interesting after all the ammunition exploding into Iraq, the deceptive Patriot Act, the color-coded anxiety alerts also known as terror alerts, "contagious" violence in hip-hop, poor Mexican immigrants invading our country, degenerate homosexuals—our threat to Americans is a 23-year-old man who was depressed? After all "they" claim to be doing to protect America we have the worst massacre in US history on a college campus in Virgini...this must be a "child left behind".
Isn't this a terrorist attack? If the murderer was of Middle Eastern descent (wouldn't matter if he was Muslim or not) it would most definitely be labeled a terrorist attack. Do you think Cho Seung-Hui was inspired by President George W. Bush, "Smoke 'em out!" Seung-Hui left a note saying, “You made me do this”—I’m sure that’s what Bush said about the people of Iraq. Maybe Seung-Hui was inspired by the rock music he listened to, which his roommates discussed on CNN, such as Led Zeppelin, Nirvana and Collective Soul…oh, no; those artists are more artistically relevant than 50 Cent. Maybe he was a Communist (he is from Korea!) and left a note, which pointed out "rich kids," "debauchery" and "deceitful charlatans"...hmmmm, what media spin can be put on this stint?
I'm just looking forward to the fabulous scare tactics that can be pulled with the "deadliest massacre in US History". Nonetheless, no one is going to deal with the main issues, like gun control in our violent country. I know—this never happens “here”, we aren’t in Haiti, the Congo in Africa, or a favela in Brazil…this isn’t a third-world country…yet. Check out the wonderful gun control laws in Virginia:
1. No gun registration
2. No mandatory waiting period to purchase weapons
3. Limit of one gun purchase per month
My heart goes out to all of the people who have been deeply affected by this act of violence. The victims have crossed all backgrounds--black, white, Latino, upper class, middle class, men, women, freshmen, seniors, straight and gay.
