Here is part two of my coverage of the March For Our Lives rally. Let’s hope this rally will be the spark that ignites change. Sadly though it also appears to have fostered reactions of contempt, scorn and rage. The lead singer of The Eagles of Death Metal posted a scathing post on Instagram full of vitriol, hate and seething rage. If you are curious you can read this article.
It is one thing to not agree with the protesters that is understandable, but the level of anger and hostility is not
But how, does a healthy, wealthy, successful white American male who gets paid a lot of money to pursue a career he loves get so filled with rage? Who ever harmed this person? His entitled rage stems from where exactly? It is one thing to not agree with the protesters that is understandable, but the level of anger and hostility is not. You would think there would be a level of understanding after the terrorist attack in Paris. But sadly no.
And he is not alone. Then there is Laura Ingraham who tweeted mockingly about David Hogg getting rejected from multiple colleges and her annoyance at his posting about his frustrations online. Um, so with your tweet you are doing the very thing that you are complaining about.
I think both Laura Ingraham and Jesse Hughes need to complete a course in Adulating 101.
Yes Laura Ingraham is over forty but she works in media and should be fully aware by now how young (and the not so young) people communicate these days. So, who is the adult here? I think both Laura Ingraham and Jesse Hughes need to complete a course in Adulating 101. What say you?
The March For Our Lives rally was both inspiring and unnerving. It sheds light on a deeply divided country. I hear so often about the extremes. This always makes me wonder. There are certainly extremes on the right, but when it comes to the left I am never quite know what people are referring to. Yes there are full blown anarchists out there but they represent a very small minority and get just about zero airtime, rightly so as they are such a tiny minority.
I have many friends and colleges that have told me they have stopped watching the news all together. I have not quite done that, but I can empathize with the desire to burry one’s head in the sand
Most Americans on the left have no desire to formulate full blown anarchy. I mean we have all seen The Walking Dead, the break down of civilization is no picnic. So, what is the extreme left? Bernie Saunders? Is he the extreme left, wanting a decent working wage for all Americans? You got me I don’t know.
But we are divided thats for sure. I have many friends and colleges that have told me they have stopped watching the news all together. I have not quite done that, but I can empathize with the desire to burry one’s head in the sand. Or better yet, drop out and go live in a tiny bungalow on the island furthest out in the ocean in Key West. Just eat, sleep and soak up the rays. Hands up, whose with me?2
