The evidence in this case establishes beyond a reasonable doubt that the suspect, fueled by rage against Republican legislators, decided to commit an act of terrorism as that term is defined by the Code of Virginia. See Va. Code §220.127.116.11 The suspect, using a lawfully-purchased assault rifle and handgun, ambushed a peaceful assembly of people practicing baseball and began to fire indiscriminately in an effort to kill and maim as many people as possible.
First of all, of those who lost family in the 59 dead in a country music concert at Las Vegas, with over 500 wounded, how many of them do you think are gun owners, Democrat and Republican, and how did attacking them by association help at all? And how did they bear responsibility for this mass shooting? Specifically?
“They say it’s inappropriate to be talking about it because it’s too soon,” Kimmel said. “Well, maybe it is too soon for you because deep down inside you know — in your heart you know you bear some responsibility for the fact that almost anyone can get any weapon they want, and now you want to cover yourself until the storm of outrage passes and you can go back to your dirty business as usual.”
Deep down inside, Kimmel knows there’s writing on the wall.
It’s awfully kind of Jimmy Kimmel to reach out to the families of the dead and wounded with an obscene, overt act of public shaming in their time of grief, before they have even buried their loved ones. That you are personally responsible for the choice another man made with your life and that of your loved ones is exactly what you want to hear as you prepare funeral arrangements and struggle to contain the trauma and grief that same stranger(s) caused. You are one comforting motherfucker for survivors and family alike, Jimmy. A class act. Fuck your tears. Trump Supporters Deserved to Die?
In real life, celebrity opinions really don’t matter and if you don’t believe me, try giving that self-righteous public shaming act in the waiting room of a Las Vegas hospital right now. In hindsight everything is 20/20. If we could predict and prevent national tragedies, surely the nation would have acted, and Kimmel would have ended up as spare parts in an abortion clinic bargain bin with Chelsea Handler and the rest of their self-infatuated ilk, the low hanging fruit of punditry. Unfortunately, predictive science had yet to catch up with humanity’s loftiest ideals, so we’re stuck with them. Let’s start a dialogue about that.
