To paraphrase that infamous political operative Rahm Emanuel - “Never let a good (crisis) tragedy go to waste”. Rahm was reminding his Lib/Democ foot soldiers in their War on America that, regardless of the abject horror of any situation, there is always some political advantage to be gained.
Well I guess “poor taste is better than no taste at all”. Rahm’s media sycophants (aka "tragedy profiteers") listened and learned.
The Party That Cares (about winning elections) was mobilized within minutes of the Connecticut school tragedy. The sounds of the police and EMT sirens were still wafting thru the Sandy Hook community when the liberal drive-by media began their oh-so-predictable “it’s those crazy right-wing gun-nuts fault.....”
Here we go again:
On the Left - Blue America
“Those millions of aborted babies”..... aren’t “real babies" (?)
On the Right - Red America
“Guns don’t kill people”..... but crazy people with guns often do. (!)
From that baseline it gets really bee-zarre.
Our world / our society, is an ever increasingly complex drawer-full of Gordian Knots
. If you don’t know the historical significance of a Gordian Knot then imagine a mountain of millions of unsorted socks and you have to separate and sort them.... and they are all either black or navy blue..... and you are wearing oven mitts..... and its dark and its raining. A bunch of screamin’ lunatics are standing over you yelling HURRY UP.
Beware the all-knowing fool who screams – “It’s simple. All we have to do is _______.”
..... Or the pollyannas who bemoan - “why can’t we all just get along?”
..... Or the toxic haters who is certain – “it’s all ‘their’ fault!”
Toxic haters come in all partisan shades of toxicity with many different definitions of “their”.
The grim reality is that America and the world are an ever leaning Tower of Babel. As the tower tips ever closer to totally collapsing we are all screaming at one another in so many “unknown tongues”..... screaming and pointing fingers.
This Connecticut School Shooting set a new record for mainstream media foolishness. Within two hours of the first report, USAToday’s website had a headline – Lebron James’ Reaction to Connecticut Tragedy
. Lebron James’ reaction was headline-worthy??? ..... to be fair to Lebron, that article had tweet quotes from a dozen other pro athletes. Thankfully, all dozen think it was a very horrible thing to happen. Jeeezzzzz.
No doubt somewhere in the cyber universe The Kardashian Klan, Carrot Top, and Flo The Progressive Insurance Shill were expounding their deepest thoughts. Carrot Top and Flo ..... ??
If it was ever God’s intention that we “all get along” and there be no unexplained evil in this world, that possibility was shot to hell (literally) when Eve ate the apple. You “don’t take the Bible literally” folks can go with that however you please.
Soon after Lebron (and The K-girls et al) had gone public with their shock, the Center For Overused Adjectives declared total gridlock relative to words in the English language for shock, sorrow and sympathy.
If there is a Diogenes out there searching for one person NOT shocked and sorrowed by this horrible tragedy, I don’t envy him his assignment.
Make no mistake about it – this latest tragedy will NOT go to waste.
Elected demagogues are furiously practicing their ability to tear-up on cue and reviewing hurriedly crafted DEMANDS that “Something MUST be done and done NOW !!! Accompanied, of course, by the obligatory harrumph, snort, fist shake and podium pound.
The targets of those “somethings to be done about” are, of course, those damned aforementioned “them”.
The ubiquitous Tragedy Profiteers are always the "second responders". TV-Documentarians are already shooting b-roll. Chroniclers are scrambling for advances on the plethora of post-tragedy books sure to be published. Production assistants for The View are booking every grief-stricken family member in Sandy Hook and/or outspoken gun control advocate.
Don’t worry Rahm...... this latest tragedy will NOT be wasted
