Of course Republicans are attacking the articulate survivors of a mass shooting. What choice do they have, an open debate based on facts? Here’s a recent comment from Ted Nugent, NRA board member, Republican booster, and sexual predator:
The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies. I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless. To attack the good law-abiding families of America when well known predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless. These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the Republican Party. When Ted Nugent is denounced by other Republicans for literally discounting the humanity of people who disagree with him, post the evidence here in the comments. I won’t be holding my breath.
