"Despite hitting rock bottom, he appears to be trying to dig deeper".
This ought to be a line on Jason Lewis' next performance evaluation.
The last several days he has been an incoherent fool, on his KTLK radio show, about the VT mass murder case.
The day of the killings, Lewis was ranting about how Cho Seung-Hui was corrupted by his liberal professors at VT, as evidenced by his rant against America's rich.
You had everything you wanted. Your Mercedes wasn't enough, you brats. Your
golden necklaces weren't enough, you snobs. Your trust funds wasn't enough. Your
vodka and cognac wasn't enough. All your debaucheries weren't enough. Those
weren't enough to fulfil your hedonistic needs. You had everything.
You have vandalized my heart, raped my soul and torched my conscience. You
thought it was one pathetic boy's life you were extinguishing. Thanks to you, I
die like Jesus Christ, to inspire generations of the weak and the defenceless
Why do zealots like Jason Lewis have to assign blame to a political party or ideology for heinous acts such as this?
He completely dismissed the religious overtones of the killers rant. While it would be easy to assign a political ideology to those overtones, it's not right.
The past few nights, his rant has expanded to include the "entire institution of liberalism".
Mount St Lewis erupted last night.
Pinning the VT mass murder squarely on the shoulders of liberalism.
The mental health community (a liberal bastion) failed this young man.
The liberal courts did not imprison this risk to society. Were these activist judges that failed in this instance?
The liberal professors at VT tainted the young mans mind with delusions of class warfare.
Liberals hating 2nd Amendment rights kept weapons out of the hands of students who could have defended themselves.
He went on and on...
Lewis likes to paint those that are left of insane with a broad brush. Difficult to do when one is hardly capable of painting by numbers.
The young man purchased these weapons legally. More guns will not solve the problem.
This young man was a victim as well, a victim of a national mental health system that failed. Students, faculty members and medical professionals all profess that this kid was suffering from some pretty severe depression.
It still does not give a 22 year old man the right to commit the largest mass murder in the history of the United States, but it sheds significant light as to why this young man acted this way.
Access to mental health care is a significant issue in Greater Minnesota. Because of limited resources and facilities, oftentimes metro cases get "outsourced" to Greater Minnesota facilities, leaving a shortfall of already scant resources for those of us in Greater Minnesota.
Lewis would call us "nanny state liberals" for talking like this.
How close is that to being a "compassionate conservative"?
Who needs Don Imus when you have Jason Lewis?
