Spanky offers thoughts and prayers

Hit rewind. Press play:

A man with a vendetta against an Annapolis newspaper fired a shotgun through the newsroom’s glass doors and at its employees, killing five and injuring two others Thursday in a targeted shooting, according to police.

The attack appears to be the deadliest involving journalists in the United States in decades.

Local police said the Capital Gazette was targeted in the Maryland incident that prompted heightened security in newsrooms around the country.

A bulletin emailed to Maryland law enforcement officials identified the shooting suspect as Jarrod Ramos, 38. Police were searching an apartment in Laurel, Md., late Tuesday that is tied to Ramos.

Ramos in 2015 lost a defamation case he brought against the paper over a 2011 column he contended defamed him. The column provided an account of Ramos’s guilty plea to criminal harassment of a woman over social media.

And to accompany the generic cartoon, the generic response:

Which means wait a couple of weeks and rerun the whole thing again in a different city with a different body count.

Because Spanky and his gang and the entire GOP are NRA whores. As long as people keep electing them, nuts with guns are going to kill.

Oh, and remember the korrupt krimson klansman did this a couple of days ago:

Three thoughts on the NRA terrorist group and its GOP buttboys

Thought No. 1:

Thought No. 2:

Thought No. 3:

To stop the NRA, you have to stop the GOP. Otherwise, the shootings will never end. Because you only get bullshit like this from Republicans:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick blamed Friday’s massacre at a high school near Houston in part on “too many entrances and too many exits” on the campus, prompting some to mock his perspective as “door control.”

“From what we know, this student walked in … with a long coat and a shotgun under his coat,” said Patrick, a Republican who has an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association. “It’s 90 degrees. Had there been one single entrance possibly for every student, maybe he would have been stopped.”

They will limit the number of doors, but they won’t limit the number of guns.

More NRA death. More of the same.

The NRA terrorist organization strikes again:

Ten people were killed in a shooting Friday morning at a high school here in Southeast Texas by a student wielding two of his father’s guns, authorities said. Police were also investigating explosive devices found at the school and elsewhere in the community.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) said that in addition to the 10 people slain, another 10 people were injured in the rampage at Santa Fe High School, about 34 miles southeast of Houston.

Most of those killed in the carnage were students, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, who said the shooting occurred shortly before 8 a.m.

And we later find out this:

This piece of shit needs to be in jail with his miscreant son. Of course he supports the NRA and Fox News.

Mental illness and terrorism

The leaders of the NRA terrorist group have a saying. You know it. It’s a lie, as this cartoon proves:

Because this happened:

James Shaw Jr. single-handedly wrestled an AR-15 from a man at a Waffle House who had just gone on a shooting rampage in Antioch, Tenn., early Sunday, killing four people.

Shaw said he didn’t consider it heroic when he rushed at the man, took his gun and pushed him out of the restaurant. Shaw was getting breakfast with a friend at the time.

“I’m not a hero. I’m just a regular person, and I think anybody could have did what I did if they are just pushed into that kind of cage,” he said, growing emotional, at a news conference Sunday. “You have to either react or you’re going to fold, and I chose to react because I didn’t see any other way of living, and that’s all I wanted to do. I just wanted to live.”

So this takes care of one lie on the right. Here’s the other lie:

THERE WERE plenty of warning signs about Travis J. Reinking. He once told police that music superstar Taylor Swift was stalking him and hacking into his phone. Another time, he barged into a community pool, jumping into the water wearing a woman’s pink housecoat and challenging lifeguards to a fight. Then there was his arrest by the Secret Service for breaching White House security because he wanted to meet with the president.

Yet there he allegedly was early Sunday morning — just nine months after his White House arrest — at a Waffle House outside Nashville, in possession of an assault-style rifle that authorities say was used to kill four people and wound several others.

This is the typical “white guy is mentally disturbed” mass killer explanation. But look at the names of the people he killed:

Joe R. Perez, 20

DeEbony Groves, 21

Taurean C. Sanderlin, 29

Akilah Dasilva, 23

This is a racially motivated shooting. If Travis J. Reinking has Muhammad as his first name and the victims’ list consisted of Janet, Chrissie, Jack and Mr. Roper,  the pussygrabbing Orange Utan would be rearing himself up on his haunches and screaming “TERRORIST, TERRORIST, TERRORIST” to appease his inbred base. But he doesn’t make a sound. Reinking is a right wing gun nut terrorist, encouraged and motivated by the NRA.

Don’t pretend it’s just a mental health issue.

And while we’re talking about mentally disturbed white guys, here’s the latest from Toronto:

The Globe and Mail spoke to three of Alek Minassian’s former classmates who described him as being socially awkward, believing he may have suffered from a social or mental disability. 

Minassian kept mostly to himself at school, and seemed to constantly rub his head or hands – a sign of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), they added.

Other classmates suggested he had never exhibited any indication of possessing extremist views or violent tendencies and was described by one couple as being “friendly”.  

One student said Minassian did not interact particularly well with other students, but would not describe him as a loner. 

And this:

At a news conference Tuesday, Detective Sgt. Graham Gibson said that “the accused is alleged to have posted a cryptic message on Facebook” minutes before he began his attack. The Facebook post referred to a misogynistic online subculture for “involuntarily celibate” men.

If you want to say he’s crazy, fine. But the last paragraph indicates a hatred of women. If he acted out of hatred for women, he’s a terrorist.

The terrorist label in the American media seems to be reserved for brown people. The mentally disturbed label is usually applied to whites. Either call everyone involved in mass murder a terrorist or call them mentally disturbed. Don’t stereotype groups because it serves a political purpose.

The generic gun massacre cartoon

The terrorist organization called the NRA just killed two more kids:

A 15-year-old boy armed with a handgun allegedly walked into a rural high school in Kentucky and opened fire on his classmates early Tuesday, authorities said, killing two students and wounding a dozen other people before being stopped by a sheriff’s deputy.

At a news conference, Kentucky State Police Commissioner Rick Sanders said the boy walked into Marshall High School in Benton, Ky., shortly before 8 a.m. and began shooting.

Gov. Matt Bevin said a 15-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the school and a 15-year-old boy succumbed to his injuries at a hospital. Twelve other people were shot, and five people were treated for other types of injuries sustained during the incident.

Guns don’t kill people. People who don’t do anything about guns kill people.

Christmas incident at Nakatomi Plaza

This from WSMH19 in California:

Police, SWAT, and FBI are surrounding Nakatomi Plaza at this hour after a police officer was reportedly fired upon. The police officer had stopped by the building after receiving what was initially reported as a false fire alarm on the 32nd floor.

A short time later in what was at the time believed to be a prank, a call was received by local police. The caller speaking on a restricted police band had stated that terrorist had taken over the building and had killed a hostage.

This prompted sending an officer for further investigation. The officer initially had radioed that the situation was cleared, but then immediately reported shots fired. Though unconfirmed at this time, reports say that the officer also reported that a body was thrown from an upper floor window.

Details concerning who actually may be in the building is sketchy at this time, a Nakatomi Corporation Christmas office party/ building construction party was reportedly taking place on the 30th floor. We attempted to contact Nakatomi Corporation executive Joseph Takagi for comment but have thus far been unsuccessful.

Sources tell us that a man named Hans Gruber has radioed the police with a set of demands. Again, details are unconfirmed at the time. Here is the unverified transcription of the radioed demands from Mr. Gruber:

 

“The following people are to be released from their captors. In Northern Ireland, the seven members of the New Provo Front. In Canada, the five imprisoned leaders of Liberte de Quebec. In Sri Lanka, the nine members of the Asian Dawn movement.”

Here’s a closed circuit image of Gruber:And word is, someone who thinks he’s a cowboy is running through the building, because police have picked up this interchange through the building’s security system.

The NRA adds Christians to its list of murder victims

Because this happened today:

A gunman shot and killed more than two dozen people and injured many others Sunday inside a small community church here in South Texas, and he was found dead several miles away from the scene after fleeing, authorities said.

The mass shooting happened during morning services at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, a small town in the countryside more than 30 miles southeast of San Antonio, and it claimed the lives of people ranging in age from 5 to 72, authorities said.

Witnesses described the shooter as a man in his 20s wearing all black clothing and a tactical vest.

Here’s a story from 2015:

Using numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we found that from 2001 to 2013, 406,496 people died by firearms on U.S. soil. (2013 is the most recent year CDC data for deaths by firearms is available.) This data covered all manners of death, including homicide, accident and suicide.
According to the U.S. State Department, the number of U.S. citizens killed overseas as a result of incidents of terrorism from 2001 to 2013 was 350.
In addition, we compiled all terrorism incidents inside the U.S. and found that between 2001 and 2013, there were 3,030 people killed in domestic acts of terrorism.* This brings the total to 3,380.
Those are numbers from 2013. We are in 2017 and we’ve lost count of the number of Americans killed by guns since then. But let’s be clear on this. The NRA has murdered more than 100 times as many Americans as al-Qaeda and ISIS and MS-13 and every other boogeyman the Republicans have thrown at the pump truppets and their enablers since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
The NRA is a terrorist organization, and a pretty damn efficient one at that. Because it’s fluffers in the GOP aren’t going to do anything to put an end to its reign of carnage. All they’re going to do is this:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement that his office stands ready to assist local law enforcement as needed: “The thoughts and prayers of all Texans are with the people of Sutherland Springs as tragic reports come out of First Baptist Church.” 
More thoughts and prayers while the deadly reign of the NRA continues. That’s all Republicans ever offer.
