There is a very simple explanation as to why the country seems to be experiencing the gun violence of recent years. It basically comes down to one simple explanation, Liberals. Though I’m sure they’ll take exception to that, the reality is that we live in a society that has lost all sense of morality over the last sixty-odd years, leading to a societal breakdown. Brought to us by liberal politicians, liberal educators, and liberals in the entertainment industry.
As a child of the late sixties and early seventies, I grew up during the era of “free love,” “flower power,” “make love not war,” and “down with the pigs.” I witnessed firsthand what has been called traditional American values being tossed aside. Championed no less by liberals on the left wing of the American political spectrum.
It was liberals who preached to us that capitalism was corrupt and communism wasn’t all that bad. T-shirts with the image of Che Guevara were flying off the shelves during that era, and one can still find his image on posters and T-shirts nowadays. Even though the truth of what a brutal and despicable person he was is well-known and out there for anyone to see, as long as they choose to.
Che, the hero of the left was a brutal murderer who killed people he didn’t like just for sport. But to the ‘counter-culture crew’ he was just a ‘revolutionary,’ fighting against the corruption and evil of big business. Just as the truth about Che is ignored by liberals, so is the true nature of the Cuban regime of the Castro brothers.
Fidel has also been admired as a revolutionary, while he has brutalized the Cuban people now for decades. But hearing liberals talk, Che and the Castro boys represented ‘the people’ against ‘the man’ who oppressed and exploited everyone. More liberal theology. Heck, why not just open an embassy!
It was liberals who devalued human life by insisting on abortion on demand. Now we recently have discovered that the abortion industry is nothing more than a ‘baby bodies for profit’ enterprise. Not really about a woman’s right to choose at all.
Since the most innocent among us, the unborn, have found their lives devalued and only their lifeless bodies of any worth, we have seen on the streets of American cities a devaluing of all lives, with rampant violence, death and destruction. Thank you once again liberals.
While the old television programs like Ozzie and Harriet, Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver might have been a fantasized vision of reality in America, glossing over many of the societal issues of that day and time, there was nothing wrong with the ideals they portrayed. Unless being viewed through the eyes of liberals.
Instead of programs promoting traditional family values we are “treated” to the misfits on MTV’s ‘The Real World’ and ‘Jersey Shore.’ It seems that holding the standards of traditional morality and decency is now viewed as archaic and out of the mainstream. If you believe that way then you’re obviously a hater. At least that is what the liberals tell us all the time.
At one point in the not too distant past “Firearms Safety” and “Marksmanship” were part of the curriculum in many American high schools. Young people growing up were taught to respect firearms, taught how to properly care for them, and also taught that a great deal of responsibility came with handling a firearm. Lessons that only youths who mostly live in rural areas and who are raised by hunters and other sportsmen receive anymore.
But thanks to the liberals the lessons of responsible gun ownership and safety are no longer taught in American schools. Most youths nowadays receive their weapons training playing video games, or watching many of the violent movies Hollywood produces each year.
Where a joystick you control kills your enemies in a most visual way, with body parts flying off in all directions. Good guys or bad guys, it doesn’t really matter. The amount of carnage one can produce is how one scores points.
A far cry from the pinball machines of my youth, or the Roy Rogers westerns where bad guys got shot and you knew they were dead, but you didn’t need to see their innards to confirm it.
Yes, thank you once again liberals for reducing America to a place where traditional family values are scorned. And now a place where dysfunctional lifestyles are admired. Where respect and safety with firearms, along with character and honor is no longer taught in our schools, but in fact is deemed as evil or outmoded.
And a place where the value of human life has been reduced to how much money can be made off of the pieces of a dead baby.
