He Dies from Your Sins

He Dies from Your Sins

Who you gonna hate now
When there’s no one left but you
Who you gonna gun down
If you can’t kill the truth
That’s inside of us
It’s inside the blood
It’s inside a pulse

I am human, I am love
And my heart beats in my blood
Love will always win
Underneath the skin
Everybody’s got a pulse
(Everybody’s got a pulse)

Melissa Etheridge  – “Pulse”

I got some memes in my email today.

They’re described as shocking and offensive
and I wondered if I should post them.

But they’re no more shocking or offensive then
anything the people in the memes have said
and done?

If you spend your life inciting hatred and violence and
the inevitable ‘lone gunman’ acts on your word then you
are the shooter.

Examine these memes for yourself and decide for yourself if
they are shocking and offensive and if you don’t think so
then please pass them on.

The email credits them to Michael Sheldon.

I hope that he made them for people to share.

If not, all he has to do is say the word and I’ll take them down.

  1. Thank you for the credit and please keep them up!
    After I made them I wasnt sure if I wanted to post them. I’m glad I did as they seem to have struck a chord with so many people.

    1. Silence=Death; We survivors know that this is utterly true.

      Thank you for having the courage to make them. I log into twitter specifically to find the accounts of people who post them for re-tweets.

      With your permission I’ll post them to my Flickr blog.

  2. There is an old musical called, “South Pacific,” dealing with the roots of prejudice (but applies) “You have to be carefully taught.” Children are products of their environment and family, which creates loners but this young man sought out the wrong direction. My Dad was very much raised in a tough environment but he chose to rise above it. There are many who do. Thank goodness, somehow a teacher or friend raises their awareness! ❤ love is everything!

  3. I think this is a great post … the memes need to be out there. People need to see that his wasn’t a “lone wolf’ …. this is a “creation” of those who continue to incite division, hate and bigotry …. similar to yelling “fire in a crowded theater”. They should be charged …. ALL of them!! No passes to them …

    I think these memes are right on target …. pun intended! Even don’t I don’t want to sayhis name … but these people also had a finger on that trigger … #DontSayHisName …. it’s necessary here!!

    1. We have to say his name…it’s the only way to say theirs. The party of ‘accountability’ never takes any and when pressed deflects and blames everyone else. Obama is to blame for the shootings. Not these greedy hate spewing hypocrites who have no patience for their responsibilities as Americans to their community.

    1. I’m sick of giving these political bullies a free pass. I can’t pretend that they aren’t complicit in the civil and economic decline of the United States. They have gotten away with decades of using the most demeaning and abusive language to describe anyone who is either different from them or who disagrees with them. I’m sick of them and I’m sick of seeing them get away with murder. I suspect I’m not the only one.
