The motive isn't even known yet, but that hasn't stopped the Left from exploiting the tragedy.
I had been hearing about that club shooting in Colorado since yesterday. They referred to it as a Gay club. Drag shows, entertainment, etc.
Fast forward to this morning and I’m listening/watching John Roberts and Sandra Smith on Fox.
WOW……..they had Mr. Farrio (I think that was his name) on……..he was the hero who undoubtedly saved many lives………Smith and Roberts were overwhelmed by this incredible individual as was I. He was retired military…….served 2 or 3 times in combat areas. My God, what an unbelievable person. He said his training just kicked in and he grabbed the shooter and threw him on the floor and just started pounding and beating the guy. Smith and Roberts were so taken with this man that they didn’t stop talking about him……….I sat there stunned and proud.
"hate crime" is a wokester invention. no murder victim is superior to another. these poor people didn't deserve to be killed or injured, but for us to buy into the notion that any one group deserves more sympathy than another only perpetuates a divide-and-conquer scheme.
Hurray for opening up the comments! You're one of the ones at the top of the list when I can afford it :)
On a happy note, Brooks was sentenced to life (6 times!) for the parade attack. (CNN readers were probably left wondering who this person was)
Now that everyone on the Left side of the aisle has injected themselves with the brain virus known as Critical Theory, they've picked up all the ugly habits of Leftist academia, one of which is this same basic play they've been running since the 80s (bc no one has been able to defend against it):
Declare everything Oppression and everyone either an Oppressor or a Victim; declare anyone who disagrees with your platform a vile Nazi bigot and connect them to the worst people and crimes of their identity group (so all noncompliant White men become the recapitulation of everyone from Hitler to George Wallace); declare these people and their thoughts outside the boundaries of decent society and conversation, meaning all your opponents get smeared with the stink of the bigot and ideally delegitimized socially and politically; then rinse and repeat until everyone in any position of power, anyone with any platform, is either on your team, too afraid of your team to disagree, or cast into the outer darkness of society.
It's how they conquered the Humanities, then all of academia, then the entire cultural complex of the Anglosphere, and is how they've now achieved almost total control of American discourse.
This column represents one of the reasons I subscribed to your substack as a paying member. You're an eclectic, the only other one I've encountered here.
I am employed by a very woke university in Canada. We received an email about this hate crime today and you’d better believe we’ll be amping our activism for LGBTQ!
Read that before I read this, but the whole email stunk to high heaven. What a disgusting exploitation of a tragedy.
Great stuff, glad to see the comments are open. You're at the top of my list for next year
> The shooter was arrested a year ago for felony menacing and first degree kidnapping, but the defense attorney decided not to pursue charges
I assume you mean "district attorney", not defense attorney?
