…should that not behoove you to oppose immigration into the west? Think of the tragedies that could be avoided if people are kept well away from our deadly toxic western cisheteropatriarchy! If dad had kept the family in Afghanistan, there would’ve been no toxic western cisheteropatriarchal things like elves with boobplates or a 2:1 ratio of male to female adventurers to corrupt poor little Omar, and the shooting could’ve been prevented!
Look. If a guy in suit shows up with a Tommy-gun, says “Fat Tony’s got a message for ya”, and shoots up a diner, maybe, just maybe, we should look into this Fat Tony guy and his organization. But no, these idiots would start saying that unhealthy greasy spoon food and burned coffee are the problem.
Of course the discussion hasn’t been “helpful or productive“, because you’re pushing bullshit through people’s blood and are mad that people who share common ground with the victims are calling you on it. Trying to push the “gaming has a white heterosexual male terrorist problem” narrative right now is literally the least helpful thing you can be doing.
I’d really not wanted to even broach this subject, but this is one of those things where I feel like if I don’t say something, I’ll get an aneurysm.
Anyway, the Frisky Pagan has written up a lengthy and insightful piece on those who are trying to blame every little thing in the Orlando shooting but the killer and his stated motives. I suggest you read it.
