Adam Lanza's armed massacre of young students in Newton, Conn. is
being celebrated by the mainstream media. It's also being celebrated
by Obama administration officials who publicly shed a tear but behind
the scenes are no doubt high-fiving each other over the opportunity
to push their agenda of citizen disarmament.
The media celebrates mass shootings because they make for great
ratings. People tune in to watch the horrifying scenes and share
in the grief. This means eyeballs on the screen and that
translates into ad revenue for the TV news networks.
Over 33,000 Americans are killed each year in automobile accidents,
but those deaths warrant virtually no media coverage. Why? Because
individual auto accidents just aren't interesting enough
to attract a bunch of eyeballs to the screen. But a mass killing...
well, gee, that's interesting to view in a horrifying "train
wreck" kind of way. So that gets the air time.
glorifies psychopathic killers
What's even more
horrifying than the massacre itself is the way the mainstream media
now glorifies mass shooters, turning them into cult heroes
and even ranking their body counts as a sort of achievement score.
The Newtown shooting currently holds the "high score" according to
the mainstream media, and they have no problem pushing this kind of
junk journalism as long as their teleprompter-reading reporters appear
to be convincingly saddened for the cameras.
Never mind the fact that such local shootings
are largely irrelevant to the lives of Americans, especially given
the far greater relevancy of issues like the Federal Reserve's debt
creation monopoly, the deadly body count of prescription drugs (100,000+
Americans a year), the mass fluoride poisoning of the American people
and so on. Why did the media
spend hours broadcasting O.J. Simpson's white bronco slow-speed car
chase on the LA freeways a few years ago? Because it was bizarre,
not because it was relevant news. O.J.'s life is irrelevant to almost
everyone other than O.J.
shootings, you see, the killer victimizes the children once, and
then the media victimizes them a second time.
a good crisis"
Nowhere is the
celebration of school shootings more amplified than in Washington
D.C. where the federal government desperately wants to disarm the
American people. The higher the body count of children in a given
mass shooting, the more "moral authority" D.C. politicians will claim
to have in destroying the rights of all Americans by demanding they
turn in their guns.
Right now, there's a massive call among traitors like Bloomberg to
gut the Second Amendment and completely disarm perfectly innocent
American citizens who have done nothing wrong (and are actually upstanding
citizens who PREVENT crime).
Remember: Millions of privately-armed Americans are off-duty cops
and returning veterans who have been trained by the government
to carry weapons and use them to stop crimes. But people like
Obama and Bloomberg want to condemn them all as "potential criminals"
and strip away their constitutional right to carry a firearm. This
is the idiocy of the Washington agenda to ban all guns from private
The more mass shootings occur, the louder the call becomes for "gun
control" which actually doesn't work but it's a convenient scapegoat
for those who don't know any better.
This is precisely why Eric Holder and the Obama administration staged
Fast & Furious as a way to put guns directly into the hands
of Mexican drug gangs, with the hope that those guns would multiply
the number of violent shootings in states like Arizona, New Mexico,
Texas and California.
The plan worked: Those guns were used in violent murders in the USA.
But Eric Holder got caught, and now the Obama administration is busy
trying to sweep the whole thing under the rug.
School shootings are secretly welcomed by the Obama administration
because they create the necessary emotional impact that will result
in irrational public support for citizen disarmament schemes. This
is why the federal government keeps pushing for school
"gun free zones." Such signs posted outside schools advertise
those schools as easy targets for psychopathic killers. It's almost
like posting a sign that says, "All killers welcomed here!"
also welcomes school shootings
industry is at least partially responsible for many of these shootings,
as it is their own drugs which cause young males to become violent
and detached. The vast majority of shooters over the last two decades
have all been taking prescription medications such as antidepressant
drugs (which are known to cause violent, suicidal behavior).
But the real benefit to Big Pharma from the school shootings is that
such events traumatize other children who can then be "diagnosed"
psychiatric disorders which are invented solely for the purpose
of selling more prescription medications to children who don't need
shootings will be allowed to continue
you see, benefit the media, the drug companies and the power base
of the federal government. This is precisely why such shootings will
be allowed to continue.
