Last week a teenager in Santa Fe, Texas took his dad’s shotgun and .38 caliber revolver and went to school and killed 10 people. A national tragedy, for sure.
Maybe this is the new normal where the American youth, disillusioned with having everything, lash out at the village that gave it to them.
The same thing happened three months earlier in Parkland, Florida. A media frenzy ensued, lasting months.
Maybe it’s because many of the more affluent kids of Parkland where demanding that the society that gave them everything, except for maybe a system to keep them safe, take away their constitutional rights to protect themselves and their families from monsters like the Cruz kid that massacred their classmates and teachers in the future.
The kids from Santa Fe, (Sacred Faith, en ingles), almost as if living up to the name of their home, clung to their faith and prayed-publicly. And for the most part, blamed no one but the evil gunman. Maybe that’s why they didn’t get all that much media attention, 24/7 for months.
But we have seen this before, the media and the elites choose which victims they want to champion.
The “blue” kids of Parkland are more worthy because they have the right attitudes and ideas while the “red” kids of Middle America pretty much got what they deserved. That’s your just desserts for clinging to your guns and religion.
This same phenomenon is evident with Cuban migration. When President Obama, as was his right under the constitution, cancelled the special refugee status given to Cubans under the Cuban Adjustment Act in the waning days of his administration: Crickets. But when President Trump exercised the same executive powers by banning people entering the US from countries with terrorist issues: Mass media and Judicial Hysteria.
Probably for the same reason. Most Cuban immigrants, especially the historical exiles, don’t hold progressive, politically correct views. Plus its payback for 2000 when 537 domino playing, cigar smoking Cuban refugees gave W Florida and the Presidency.
