The Far-Right Response To The El Paso Mass Shooting

Whenever there’s a terrorist atrocity committed by Islamic fundamentalists you will never cease hearing far-right trolling mothefuckers such as Tommy Robinson or Carl Benjamin loudly denounce Islam as being the devil incarnate threat to western civilisation & endlessly criticize the Muslim community & bang the racist drum for all Muslims to be deported from our shores, yet when a White supremacist commits a terrorist atrocity as happened this past weekend in the Texan city of El Paso where a White supremacist scumbag terrorist shot dead 22 people & injured 20 plus others at a Walmart store, Carl Benjamin posts a video in the aftermath saying we need to empathise & understand why young White males are carrying out such mass shootings because maybe they have legitimate grievances. The El Paso mass shooting being carried out by a White supremacist scumbag fuck, this isn’t the first time Carl ‘rape tweet guy’ Benjamin has posted a video on YouTube in which he reprehensibly attempts to justify nazi cunts going on killing sprees as a sneaky but utterly crass means of attempting to move the Overton-Window further to the far-right, he did likewise following the mosque shooting in the New Zealand city of Christchurch earlier this year, oh & by the way neither the latest video where Benjamin is repugnantly justifying the far-right terrorist attack in El Paso or his previous video repugnantly justifying the mosque attack in Christchurch have been demonetised, what the fuck YouTube I thought you were going to demonetise all Carl Benjamin’s videos due to him being rape tweet guy, YouTube are you sure your advertisers are going to like having their products associated with videos espousing ‘hug a nazi terrorist because they’ve legitimate grievances’ whether those nazi terrorists have killed 20 or 50 innocent people.

Carl Benjamin

As ever with Alex Jones it was the usual antisemitic bullshit we’ve heard time again from the bigoted hatemongering shock-jock propagator of fake news in the aftermath of just about every horrific mass shooting there’s been in the United States over the past few years, which of course is the bullshit it’s a false flag prelude for us commie Jews to come steal his guns. We’ve indeed heard the same bullshit time again from Jones in the aftermath of every mass shooting to hit the headlines from the Aurora theatre mass shooting & Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 to the Parkland High School shooting in 2018 to now in 2019 with the mass shootings in El Paso & Dayton, Jones propagating these are false flag events with the objective of being used as an excuse for the ‘globalists’ to come steal his & his ignorant redneck wacko listenership arsenals of firearms, yet after Sandy Hook through to Parkland there’s been no massive gun coinvestigation orchestrated by the US government, in fact there’s been fuck all gun control legislation enacted in response to any of these mass shootings, yet despite this Jones keeps on getting away with profiting from propagating the same fake ‘the feds are coming for our guns’ bullshit after every horrific mass shooting because sadly yes there are rednecks in the flyover states who are that ignorant.

Alex Jones

The only mass shooting where response from Alex Jones was somewhat different was back in 2016 when 50 people were murdered at an Orlando LGBTQ nightclub, he then claimed it was the fault of the LGBTQ community for being anti-gun, oh did I neglect to mention Jones as well as being antisemitic & generally racist/xenophobic is also a misogynist & rabidly homophobic/transphobic. Hmm I wonder what most reasonably minded rational people would find more disturbing two people of the same gender identity loving one another or Jones the mass shooter’s favourite shock-jock who constantly uses his talk radio show to push stochastic terrorism against various sections of society coupled with fetishizing the Second Amendment because he’s a bigoted gunsexual buffoon who can’t get sexually aroused unless he’s fondling an AR-15 assault rifle. 

Candice Keller is GOP Ohioan state representative who has blamed ‘transgenders & homosexual marriage & drag queen advocates’ for the mass shooting in El Paso & the subsequent mass shooting in Deyton.

(Please excuse the interlude whilst Sophia bangs her head repeatedly on her desk)

I’m not going to dignify Keller’s attention seeking homophobic/transphobic Westboro Baptist type bullshit with a response, other to say along with Donald Trump blaming videogames for mass shootings occurring at the frequency they’re happening in the United States it’s symptomatic of the dance of denial & deflection going on in avoidance of tackling root cause as to why mass shootings keep on happening in the United States something which I’ve already covered in the previous article to this one.

Maybe it’s not videogames which Donald Trump should be blaming for the El Paso mass shooting but himself & the racist shite he’s said, considering the White supremacist terrorist nazi scum fuck who killed 22 people in El Paso this past weekend quoted racist shite Trump has said over the past few years about Mexicans in their ‘manifesto’ as to why they were going to go on a murderous rampage in a city near US border with Mexico, in other words this nazi scum fuck went on a killing spree because he had a sickening hatred for Mexican immigrants to the point he wanted to kill them all & he used quotes of racist shite said by Donald Trump as means of supporting his killing spree.

Katie Hopkins

Donald Trump has in the recent past endorsed shite professional hatemonger Katie Hopkins has tweeted, I’m currently unaware if the most vile of vile bigoted cunts has tweeted or said anything in response to the El Paso & Dayton mass shootings, but the reason I mention Hopkins is that if any far-right hatemongering troll is sickeningly reprehensible enough to blame the victims or blame immigrants for these most recent mass shootings it’s fucking Katie Hopkins, because Hopkins already has form in espousing such repugnant bullshit in similar circumstances when in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue last October she blamed the “Chief Rabbi & his support for mass migration”.

The Dance Of Denial & Deflection

In the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso & Dayton this past weekend, for President Trump to be blaming videogames for the reason there are mass shootings the United States is just symptomatic of the dance of denial & deflection there is about the route cause as to why there are mass shootings happening in the United States at the frighteningly regularity they seem to be happening these days.  

Donald Trump dancing the dance of denial & deflection in blaming videogames for mass shootings in the United States

Nothing new for politicians on the right of the political spectrum in the United States to be blaming metal music or videogames as a means of denial & deflection as to why mass shootings are such a frequent occurrence in the United States. Hey if Donald Trump or any other rightwing politician in the United States are going to blame Marilyn Manson & Grand Theft Auto for mass shootings being such a frequent occurrence in the United States, fuck it why not blame the fucking Teletubbies because aren’t there nutty rightwing Christian fundamentalists who reckon the Teletubbies are a satanic influence on the young & because it’s just as a ludicrous means of bullshit denial & deflection to blame the Teletubbies as it is to blame Marilyn Manson & Grand Theft Auto as to why there are mass shootings. The reason I know it’s just ludicrous bullshit with no foundation what so fucking ever for political right in the United States to be blaming either the likes of Marilyn Manson for mass shootings as has happened in the past particularly with the Columbine High School massacre or now with the blame being put on videogames for mass shootings becoming such a far more regular horrific occurrence in the United States, is due to the fact that here in the UK plenty of people listen to Marilyn Manson & metal music as well as play videogames such as Grand Theft Auto or Doom or Mortal Kombat yet we very rarely have mass shootings on the scale there are mass shootings in the United States, hmm I wonder why the fuck that it is, nah it couldn’t be because we have extremely strict gun control laws.

Oh how fucking dare I imply the root cause for mass shootings happening at such a frightening frequency in the United States be lax gun control laws enabling emotionally unstable individuals with grievances to have easy access to firearms, how dare I blaspheme against the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution ‘the right to bear arms’ the most holy of holy amendments of the US Constitution & not blame Heavy Metal & videogames or anything which doesn’t fit in with a bigoted conservative waspy perspective of how America ought to be despite the fact that First Amendment of the US Constitution is meant to guarantee the US government make no law to abridge freedom of speech & so shouldn’t those conservatives who say they are strict constitutionalists be just as fastidious in defending free speech & free expression you know defending heavy metal musicians & videogame creators as they in using the Second Amendment in preventing the US Congress or state legislators enacting gun control laws no matter how common sense those gun control laws happen to be.  

Donald Trump blaming videogames for mass shootings was kind of reminiscent to me of when the Chief Executive of the National Rifle Association Wayne LaPierre held a press conference in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 blaming videogames pretty much in the same manner for Sandy Hook & other mass shootings, as I said above nothing new in conservative nutcases blaming videogames for mass shootings in the United States. Yet again bollocks that videogames are to blame for mass shootings & maybe what’s more to blame are Wayne LaPierre & the National Rifle Association lobbying politicians to prevent the introduction of background checks on anybody buying a firearm particularly an assault weapon, you know a common sense approach to gun control preventing criminals & the mentally ill getting hold of firearms. The NRA receive millions of dollars in donations annually from the small arms industry to payoff politicians to exploit the Second Amendment in a manner which the Founding Fathers never envisaged the Second Amendment to be used, because there’s an awful lot of profit to be made from people killing each other with guns. What’s the most common reason given not just by gunsexual rednecks in the flyover states to own an assault weapon other it being constitutional right for US citizens to do so etc, it’s because they need it for self-protection because some other fucker also has an assault weapon & you never know what their intent is for owning it, it’s this kind of bullshit paranoia which is a self-fulfilling prophecy & of course is good for business when it comes the firearms industry.

the pro gun lobby are far to blame for mass shootings in the United States then any videogame

The original intent of the Founding fathers writing the Second Amendment into the US Constitution was the United States didn’t have a standing army when it was a newly established nation after the War of Independence with the British & there was a real threat of British troops returning to reclaim the United States a British colony which a few years later British troops did in fact attempt to do & in the process burnt down the White House to the ground, but what was applicable in the late 18th century ain’t applicable or relevant in the early 21st century & certainly shouldn’t be exploited to bolster the profits of the firearms industry because that definitely wasn’t the original intent of the Founding Fathers in writing the Second Amendment, definitely not have it exploited for profit by the firearms industry at the cost of thousands of innocent people being killed annually in the United States due to firearms.

Not just political lefties who advocate for far greater gun control such as myself who are saying of the Second Amendment what was applicable in the late 18th century ain’t applicable or relevant in the early 21st century, a friend of mine who’s a conservative-libertarian & somebody who’s a political pundit on US talk radio told me today what was applicable then isn’t applicable now in regards the Second Amendment & said it’s the exploitation of Second Amendment by the firearms industry that is consequentially enabling criminals or the mentally ill easy access to firearms & surprised me by then saying background checks on people buying a gun wouldn’t be such a bad idea, yeah something of surprise considering conservative-libertarians are known to be the most gun polishing ardent supporters of right to bear arms as if the Second Amendment was written in stone, in fact they told me the Second Amendment isn’t carved in stone & could be you know amended if there was a will to do so & that there should be a will to do so.

If one conservative-libertarian can start to twig that lax gun control laws are the root cause for the frightening frequency of mass shootings in the United States I’d say there’s hope that attitudes on the right of the political spectrum in the US might be changing, in actual fact of polling on the issue of gun control has shown that the majority of US voters (including a majority of GOP voters) are in favour of greater gun control, but in the immediate nothing will be done when it comes to any common sense approach to gun control in the United States in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso or Dayton, just as there was fuck all action taken on gun control after Sandy Hook, Parkland, Orlando or any other place name now synonymous with the infamy of a mass shooting, Yeah no matter the shock & outcry there is the aftermath of any mass shooting in the United States, despite polling showing the vast majority of US citizens are in favour of there being greater gun control, politicians take no action rather they continue with the dance of denial & deflection as the root cause of mass shootings because for the politicians & the lobbyists & the arms industry there’s just way too much money to be made from gun deaths.
