Violence has taken the nation by storm and I’m pretty certain it’s Sarah Palin’s fault, peppered with a generous dose of Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity and the rest.
Julie Powers Schenecker shot and killed her kids because they were “mouthy.” I always knew kids back talking the ‘rents was a bad idea. Turns out purchasing a gun 5 days earlier and then killing one’s children is a sure fire method of shutting them up, thus eliminating that whole “mouthy” thing. Her plan fell by the wayside after gunning down both her kids when she forgot to kill herself after killing her progeny. I have it on good authority Glenn Beck is directly responsible for this one folks – all that Christian stuff prolly, right?
Then there’s the Michigan man who on Monday found his house locked, his wife’s purse and keys where they should be, and the wife was missing. By Friday evening the wife and another female were found in a shallow grave, dead from multiple gunshot wounds. The alleged shooter is the cousin of the missing wife’s husband. This one is the fault of all that militia chatter and alleged hatred, purely on race mind you, of poor, much maligned President Obama. Turns out the shooter, one Junior Lee Beebe, had occasional violent outbursts. You’re kidding! Whatcha think happens when parents name their offspring “Junior?”
What of all the police officer shootings? All across the nation police officers are being shot, many killed and why? For crime? Ya might think, but not this time. This time it’s because Sarah Palin has riled folks up so much, don’t ya know. All that “Momma Grizzly” stuff has got folks scared and all. It’s only natural when people become frightened they would then attack the very people charged with securing their safety – that would be police officers for the dimwitted.
And it’s not just here in America either. A woman in the UK had a 9 inch toy soldier’s plastic gun confiscated from her as she tried to board a plane at Gatwick. The British authorities said the 3 inch toy gun was a hazard. She’d bought it as a joke to take back to Canada for her husband who’d just retired from the Toronto police department. The toy gun was on a 9 inch toy soldier statue the woman had purchased and the toy was wrapped and in her checked luggage, but still, you know guns kill, right? Apparently even 3 inch toy guns do.
In Oklahoma a 7 year old first grader was placed in “in-school” suspension for taking his forefinger and thumb, those vile digits, and allowing them to be made into the classical “gun” image as kids will so often want to do. The worst part, as the “Midwest City-Del City Schools spokeswoman Stacey Boyer” stated, “the young boy has repeatedly used his hands to simulate a gun.” I say we just go on and euthanize this little troublemaker here and now and get it over with. It’s only a matter of time before he does worse like kiss a little girl or something like that.
Back in February a Portland, Oregon miscreant brought a toy gun from an action figure to school to show it to another kid and he was suspended from school too. Even though the evil little bastard didn’t point it at anyone, he still violated the no tolerance policy. Gotta love those no tolerance policies, right? Even when adhering to them moves from the sublime to the totally ridiculous in short order, still, rules are rules.
I cannot fairly blame Palin, Beck or Limbaugh for the Canadian woman trying to smuggle the dangerous three inch gun in her luggage onto a plane in the UK – she’s prolly just mad at America in general because we are trying to repeal Obamacare, but that’s just an educated guess. But I am dead sure the two American children, the one in Portland and the one in Oklahoma, learned their violent ways from Limbaugh and Beck.
One must notice how the time lines for both the Oklahoma incident in January this year and the Oregon incident last February, took place after the Christmas….excuse me, the “Winter Break.” Coincidence? Any takers on the bet that both of those evil little boys spent part of their time away from school listening to Beck, Limbaigh or both? Add in that their parents are prolly Republicans, thus Palin supporters by default and there ya go! We must get a handle on all this violent rhetoric! It’s simply out of control.
It’s time we outlaw guns, real as well as plastic toys, as well as children. Clearly THIS would eliminate the potential for problems, right? No guns, no problem. No kids, no problem. See? Simple, no?
