Paris Attacks Expose The Narcissists of Mizzou

People tell us who they are, but we ignore it. Because we want them to be what we want them to be. --Mad Men

You can't make this stuff up.

Concerned Student 1950, the group that seized public ground for private use at the University of Missouri has a new concern today. It seems the kiddos are upset that ISIS deigned to steal the headlines by killing 120 to 150 people in Paris, wounding 200 others.

narcissism

As news of the horror in Paris unfolded, the narcissistic, privileged, spoiled, petulant children of Mizzou's protest movement took to Twitter to demand the spotlight return to Columbia.

Here's the story on Right Scoop by Soopermexican. Because many of the tweets have been deleted (maybe on the advice of a sympathetic Mass Media instructor at Mizzou?), here's a sample of narcissism run amok at University of Missouri:

It's black kids trapped in their rooms at #Mizzou but y'all talking about #PrayforParis. Fuck Paris #PrayforMizzou --Sleaze Rich Porter (@Sleazemontana)

 

Paris is all over my local news but I didn't see shit about the KKK threatening #Mizzou ????? --@masturbad

 

I do pray for Paris, but people need to start seeing what's going on in our own country. I BARELY saw anything about #Mizzou. Quite sad --@jkleimz

 

Now people are desensitizing #BlackLivesMatter and #Mizzou for what's happening in Paris, have you no common decency? --@Alasia_Justine

 

Don't use the tragedy in Paris to try and undermine the awful things that are happening at #Mizzou. Both of these events are terrible. --@curvyyandcurlyy

People tell you who they are. I have no doubt each of these people is sincere. The kids on the quadrangle at Mizzou truly believe their plight is the equal of the victims in Paris.

We call them "kids" for a reason. They haven't lived. When they say stupid things, we say "that's not really who they are."

But we're wrong. They're wrong. And some adult should say, "you are wrong, child. You are wrong."

Now you know who #ConcernedStudent1950 is: a spoiled, privileged, child mired in the quicksand of extreme narcissism. With a little race hatred and fascist control-needs on top.

Hope your 15-minutes were worth it, kids. Just like the kids at Yale.

Do the Irish hold the cure?

Thoughts on Boston Marathon Bombing

. . . What Your Definition of Terrorism Is

I heard a lot of people giving their opinions of what constitutes “terrorism.” Here’s the United States Code:

Definitions ... the term 'terrorism' means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents;

Let’s stick with that one. To be terrorism, all of these five elements must be present. You can use it as a checklist:

  Premeditated
  Politically Motivated
  Violent
  Perpetrated against noncombatant targets
  By subnational groups or clandestine agents

 

Two bombs don’t make it terrorism, and no bombs don’t mean it’s not.


The Real Tragedy Was Apparently in Hollywood

With everybody focusing on the victims in Boston, few took time to pray for the other victims. I’m speaking, of course, of the B-List celebrities compelled to inform the world via Twitter how the events in Boston ruined their days.

It’s nice of the pretty people to acknowledge terrible events. It would be nicer, though, if they could do so without begging for sympathy over how bad they feel.

I’m not talking about all celebrities. Some, like Ben Affleck, focused on the people of Boston, mentioning himself only in the context of conveying love to the people back home.

It’s difficult to know what to say, but “this really screwed up my day” just doesn’t feel right.


I See Good People. They’re Everywhere

As always, the positive stories trump the negative ones. I don’t know how many people were involved in perpetrating this evil, but already 11 12 acts of selfless heroics have hit the news. Hundreds of Bostonians opened their homes to anyone who needs them, for instance.

People are good and can be trusted to do the right things when called upon. Some cannot, but they are few.

Seek out the stories of good. Read five positive stories for every negative you read.


Motives Matter

Motives matter, as does logic.

Someone name Chance Tate tweeted

I am so ashamed that "Saudi" and "Muslim" are trending. You didn't see "white" or "Christian" trending, after sandy hook.

The comment is logically flawed.

Recent history shows that Islam is a motive in many terrorist attacks, but no one claims that Adam Lanza’s motive was to kill the enemies of Christianity. Or whiteness. Lanza’s motive was apparently bat-shit craziness. So was Loughner’s. And James Holmes in Aurora, Colorado.

Motives matter, and the COEXIST bumper sticker on his Prius doesn’t absolve Mr. Tate of the need to think beyond his own prejudices. It’s people like him who encourage terrorists to kill and kill again.

This Is What Evil Looks Like In Action **UPDATES**

This is a Vine clip of the first explosion at the Boston Marathon. Fox 25 in Boston reported moments ago that organizers confirmed that bombs caused the explosions. Clearly many casualties.

“For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”
