BLACK EYE NEWS

Only in America can 20 people (then it was 50, then they settled on 49) be killed and left-right politics dominates the discussion. A June 17 Gallup poll found that 79% of Republicans blame “terrorism” for the shooting, while 60% of Democrats blame a lack of gun control. There’s also been a lot more “gay oppression” conversation in media and the blogosphere as a result of this episode.
The bottom line, just like with Sandy Hook, 9/11 and all these other government-orchestrated shootings, is that they rely on mass gullibility and inertia to pull them off. Conversations about gun grabs, homosexuality and boogeyman Muslims keep the meter moving among the American populace, so this shooting accomplished three things in one. But only the completely naive and U.S. government apologists believe this was a spontaneous event done by a “terrorist.” These five observations are sure to open your eyes if you read them objectively.
