Come on, Columbine was a fair fight. Think of all the ball point pens in all those desks. They must have easily outnumbered the guns Harris and Klebold carried.

Oops Uber, there you went and did it. You talking about a past historical event that jeanfart knows nothing whatsoever about. Remember Uber, those really ignorant and illiterate trolls like jeanfart and loonlois have NO knowledge whatsoever of American history or ANY history for that matter.

Heck, wasn't one of Kerry's purple Hearts for a similar injury?

...Ah, but maybe there's a ball point pen in the desk...

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
