Chairman Ann, now that she’s gotten over her insane infatuation with Chris Krispy Kreme Christie, is back to making sense.
In the wake of yet another Obama-voting insane nutjob hearing voices through the fillings in his teeth committing a massacre, she asks the pertinent question:
Tellingly, throughout the last three decades, the overall homicide rate has been in free fall, thanks to Republican crime policies, from 10 per 100,000 in 1980 to 4 per 100,00 today. (You might even call them “common sense” crime policies.) But the number of mass shootings has skyrocketed from 4 per year, between 1900 and 1970, to 29 per year since then.
Something seems to have gone horribly wrong right around 1970. What could it be? Was it the introduction of bell-bottoms?
That date happens to correlate precisely with when the country began throwing the mentally ill out of institutions in 1969. Your memory of there not being as many mass murders a few decades ago is correct. Your memory of there not being as many homeless people a few decades ago is also correct.
Amazing, isn’t it?
Now we’ll be the first to state that you should be very careful about correlation and causation, but it would seem pretty damn obvious to us that there just might be a problem in letting certified crazies roam the streets at will because keeping them under observation would be a violation of their constitutional right to commit crazy acts of mass murder as a result of their certified craziness. Thanks, ACLU. You really did a good job there.
If it saves ONE paranoid schizophrenic’s self-esteem, then it’s easily worth a hundred Newtowns.
But nobody wants to talk about that. Instead it’s all about how we absolutely have to punish hundreds of millions of NOT certifiably insane Americans for crimes they not only didn’t commit but also wouldn’t ever DREAM of committing because or their being, well, not certifiably and homicidally insane because what, exactly? Think of Teh Childernnnn™? Like the children of Sandy Hook? Oops, never mind.
Let’s face it. The only reason liberal fascists insist on letting psychopaths loose is that they need a body count. They need some blood they can bathe in and masturbate to while turning everybody else into slaves.
Perhaps we should let the psychos loose on the leftists?
