Liberal activists vs liberal activists, reloaded

MizzouThe other day, we touched on the subject of how a liberal is supposed to act when one of the left’s favored classes (LGBT community is attacked by another favored class (Muslims).

Today we have the answer: Double Down.

Via Hotair.com’s Jazz Shaw:

A vigil Monday planned by several University of Missouri student organizations was supposed to honor victims of Sunday morning’s deadly shooting rampage in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla.

It turned into a blame session against Mizzou’s LGBTQ community for not being intersectional enough.

At the University of Missouri, a group of students staged a vigil in memory of the victims, standing in solidarity with the gay and lesbian civilians who were murdered by the now infamous ISIS supporter. Their planned memorial hit a sour note, however, when another student showed up to decry the service because it wasn’t focused on the correct demographic group. (The College Fix)

Jazz posed the same question that entered my mind: “Do you suppose that there’s any room left in our collective consciousness to realize that we are at war and facing an enemy whose brutality and utter lack of any semblance of humanity knows no bounds? We’re turning the worst radical Islamist terror attack on our home soil since 9-11 into a social justice debate. This is a 21st century version of Nero fiddling while Rome goes up in flames.”

My answer is “no.” Not if you’re a progressive special snowflake with a purpose. The leader of the disruptive petulance doesn’t care that most of the victims of the Orlando slaughter were Latinos like herself. All she cares about is why all of these white, gay vigil-goers weren’t out marching the streets, smashing storefronts and shutting down events for Ol’ Teddy Bear, Michael Brown.

In fact, the entire left side of the political spectrum is trying to turn an apolitical, ideological rampage into a ppolitical impetus to pass restrictive new gun laws. None of that would have done nothing to stop any mass murdering whacko from murdering en masse, but they don’t care. All of their proposals would necessarily infringe on the rights of law abiding citizens without due process.

First they deprive you of the right to arm yourself, then they deprive you of the right to speak out, and then they start depriving you of mobility.

Fortunately however, this little bruhaha at Mizzou shows that they don’t yet have their shit together. Can we pray that they never do, while we also laugh at the little snowflakes going at each others’ throats? In the wake of that tragedy; with the current administration showing no signs of addressing the real problem of growing radical islam violence, laughter may be all we have left until the real shooting war starts.
