I was just over at yahoo.com and saw some comments on a story referring the mother of the CT. shooter as a prepper/survivalist and it was darn scary all the reasons they seemed to find for me to die. This is a short list of the most popular reasons of why I should die.
- I have listened to Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck any right wing radio host and fox news and I need to die!
- I voted for Romney and I need to die!
- I must be a tea party member or I have supported the NRA and I need to die!
- I prepare so I can have guns and food and then I will go to the homes of “normal” people and kill them! I’m not sure why a prepper or survivalist would do this and no reason was given, but I need to die!
- The Walking Dead is just a TV show! I’m not sure what this means as I have never watched the show but, I need to die!
- The mother was prepping for an “Economic Collapse” and that can never happen again in the USA. If I prepare for the same thing I need to die!
- You can prepare within “reason” for some disaster but nothing else or you are a kook. Nobody seems define what a normal amount of preps is within “reason”. I’m just guessing that my preps are not within “reason” so I need to die!
- Five guns is an arsenal as well as having hundreds of rounds. Fewer guns might also be an arsenal and I can’t seem to pin down what a reasonable amount of ammo on hand is in total rounds! See #7
- If the economy collapses these progressives say they wouldn’t want to live and I should feel the same or I’m a kook! and I need to die!
- I’m somehow an accessory to massacre that happened 3000 miles away to people I have never met because I own guns and prepare, and I need to die!
- I support the idea of homeschooling and I need to die!
- I don’t trust the government to save me in a disaster and I need to die!
- I’m disabled, a veteran and probably I will go all “Rambo” any minute or I’m using up to many limited medical resources and I need to die.
- I’m a Christian and white and believe in there is both good and evil in the world. I don’t believe in moral relativity or the “Ends justify the means” . I’m obviously a Bible thumping, bitter clinger as well as a racist and I need to die!
- I believe in limited government the Constitution as well as the Declaration of Independence. So I must hate all minorities, women the poor and I must die.
Last but not least I must just be paranoid! I don’t need a gun to protect myself, and also I need to die!
