I am thinking these shootings of late are, in some ways, the result of our nation being too PC (politically correct) – of folks being too afraid of calling ‘shitheads’ for what they really are. I would love to think it is all just this simple, but it only begins here, and goes way deeper.
Lawyers: We are too afraid to hammer some dirt-bag, least he or she comes back at us with a lawyer! Can’t fire assholes anymore, so we promote ’em. From school through the workplace, we can’t report on slime-balls lest we (might) face a lawsuit. Can’t call ‘pukes’ for who and what they are anymore – so they flourish.
Fitness Reports: Can’t report anything ‘derogatory,’ lest we offend them. Or, face a lawsuit ourselves.
The “PC Card:” Again, can’t “offend” anyone. (I am soooo happy I have never bought into this shit! I don’t care about being PC at the expense of being “authentic.”)
The “Race Card:” EVERYONE shrinks from this one. We are being played folks – by certain blacks, by certain muslims, by anyone with even remote ties to some “minority” group or another. Well be advised, I harbor no “white guilt.” Never have. You will be treated by me as you treat me – probably better, but certainly no worse.
So, because we “coddle” the low-lifes” of our society they continue to flourish – and our concept of “the American Way of Life” continues to decline…
Why should anyone be surprised? We are doing it to ourselves. I have often said: gangs exist because we chose to allow them to be. Ever heard of a gang in Singapore? There ain’t any! They are just not tolerated. Of course, that’s the nation that “caned” one of our fine, innocent little boys when he “keyed” a car… in spite of Clinton’s interference. Maybe we might consider public floggings?
