Martin Luther King Jr. once said that he had decided to stick with love because “hate is too great a burden to bear.”
King was murdered by someone for whom hatred was no burden, and on this day, when we honor King’s memory and celebrate the inauguration of the first African-American president, I am sorry to say that hate is a growth industry in America.
It’s been over a month since the Sandy Hook Massacre and nothing has been done about the flood of guns in this country.
Yes, President Obama’s team came up with some noble ideas and he’s using his office to take some important steps, but the Republicans in Congress will never give an inch on any of the major concepts as they disgustingly cling to their bogus “Second Amendment rights” argument.
On Saturday a 15-year-old boy in New Mexico allegedly murdered his parents and three of his siblings using “multiple weapons, including a military-type assault rifle.”
After slaughtering his family, police say the boy loaded up a van with weapons and planned to drive to a nearby Walmart, shoot as many people as possible and then kill himself.
This latest atrocity happened on “Gun Appreciation Day”—honestly, that’s what the freaks called it—where gun lovers got together to celebrate how the endless supply of firearms somehow makes us safer.
Five people were accidentally shot at various gun shows that day.
The terrorists at the NRA called for armed guards in schools, a sickening image on its own, but these pigs sank even lower into their own filth when they used President Obama’s daughters in one of their insane advertisements.
Christ Almighty, even the Mafia doesn't go after children.
Oh, and by the way, a newly hired security officer at a charter school in Michigan left his unloaded gun in a school restroom “for a few moments.” So much for the "good guys with guns" theory.
There are people in this country who truly believe that Sandy Hook was staged, that no children were gunned down, and that the whole horrific incident was a fabrication created solely for the purpose of “taking our guns.”
These psychotics are so deranged they actually harassed a Newton, CT resident who had taken in four terrified children after they fled the bloodbath at their school.
They accused him of being an actor, posted his personal information online and tormented him via email and telephone. Stephen King couldn’t come up with a scenario like that.
Hatred isn’t a burden for these animals. It is mother’s milk, their lifeblood. And they couldn’t exist without it.
“We cannot mistake absolutism for principle,” President Obama said today, “or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate.”
I agree with every word, but we must remember that President Obama has been the target of such vitriol that there are people who continue to question his citizenship and his religion.
Nothing will change. Hating is what we do best in America and while I know I should be reflecting upon the words of Dr. King today, all I can think about is when will the next massacre happen and how many people will die.
