This just in: Republicans wrong about something…
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
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.
Mir Seddique, Mateen’s father told NBC News, that his son saw two men kissing in Miami a couple of months ago and this angered him, adding that it had ‘nothing to do with religion’.
US president Barack Obama has said the nightclub shooting in Orlando was an ‘act of terror’ and an ‘act of hate’.
He said the FBI is investigating the massacre as an act of terrorism, and added that no effort will be spared to determine whether the shooter was affiliated with terrorist groups.
‘This is a sobering reminder that attacks on any American regardless or race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation is an attack on all of us and the fundamental values and dignity that define us as a country,” he added.
‘This massacre is therefore a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, in a house of worship or in a movie theater or in a nightclub.
‘We have to decided if that is the type of country we want to be. To actively to do nothing is a decision as well.’
