DO THE 24 HOUR NEWS STATIONS WHICH TURN VIOLENT MURDERS INTO REALITY ENTERTAINMENT NEWS SHOWS CONTRIBUTE TO THE RADICALIZING OF THE CRIMINALLY INSANE AND DISORDERED AND THAT THE GUN ISSUE IS SECONDARY? I REPORT AND YOU DECIDE!
We are learning that the deadly shooting in Oregon was an act of terrorism against Christians once again! CNN reports:
"The Umpqua gunman
targeted Christians specifically, according to the father of a wounded student.
After shooting a professor, the gunman asked students one-by-one to stand up,
and asked each of them, "Are you a Christian?"
This, according to Anastasia Boylan, 18, who relayed the account to her father
and brother before she was taken into surgery."
I am appalled at yet another deadly shooting. I am in favor of limiting the purchase of guns only to people who are qualified and have no serious mental illnesses. But we all know that acquiring guns by the criminal element will happen even if all weapons are illegal. Just think prohibition and the many ways that alcohol flowed during that period!
Yet, this killer was radicalized and no doubt he was radicalized because of mental illness or mental deficits. We don't know who radicalized him and that is the rub. Some would say that he was radicalized by the gun culture, others by Islamic terrorists which used the internet to radicalize him.
I would say that it is the Mass Media that radicalized him and others in all its forms that now needs to be regulated and censored for sex and violence as it was in the USA up until about the 1960's with the Catholic Church being at the forefront of this censorship for the common good! Movies had to make sure that crime stories did not have the criminal winning--that there was always justice of some kind at the end. But even more was censored to include graphic sex and violence and if you watch older movies you see what a benefit it was for society not to be radicalized by the media!
When we watch television and movies today, we know that writers and producers have the moral aptitude of an ally cat. They are stuck in adolescence and strive to corrupt the morals of the young and old to include children. We even see where radical homosexuals are trying to corrupt elementary school age children with their propaganda.
The liberal media needs to put a spotlight not only on how Muslim extremists are radicalizing the disordered in this country but how the liberal mass media itself is a culprit by are doing it with the sex and violence of even family hour prime time television not to mention video games and all that is available on the internet in terms of violence and sex.
I can remember that no one even saw photos of President Kennedy's gunshot wound to the head until about 30 years after the assassination. It was kept from the public because it was too graphic.
Only in the last couple of decades was the Zapruder film shown unedited on national television and in slow motion with the President's head being blown open and skull, brain and blood matter spraying forth. It is this kind of violence shown over and over in the media that radicalizes the criminally insane or disordered.
I contend the liberal media is the blame for radicalizing the criminally disordered in this country that leads to these mass shootings and that everyone including the government must do something about it. It isn't just about gun control--it is controlling the media.
