sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer (Default)
Urghh I am so mad about the Charleston shooting -- I already ranted about it a little bit on [community profile] daily_liberal this morning, so I feel like I shouldn't add a second rant, but during the 15 minutes I was home this evening I heard Fox News doing their dance of bullshit, covering all the stereotypical talking points:

  • It isn't a pattern, it's just a single isolated incident!

  • He's just a kid! Therefore it's not his fault.

  • He was probably mentally ill! You know, with voices in his head! Therefore it's not his fault.

  • This is mysterious and no one can explain why it happened! Therefore it's not society's fault.

  • Racism was definitely not a factor.
