This article starts off talking about the three yahoos who were arrested for threatening the life of Barack Obama. Then somehow it morphs into talking about Columbine. I guess because both involved guns and happened in the state of Colorado. However, it contains a great interview with Columbine principal Frank DeAngelis.
I’d like to address two great quotes made by Principal DeAngelis who is often the target of mutant harassment.
“Less than a year after the Columbine shootings,” Mr. DeAngelis was saying, “I was on a panel somewhere and I was asked, ‘What could have prevented Klebold and Harris from committing those murders on that particular day?’ I didn’t really have a good answer. The guns that they used were bought legally. An 18-year-old student went to a gun show in Colorado Springs and bought these weapons and gave them to Klebold and Harris.
I think Mr. DeAngelis is being too kind. The obvious answer is that parental involvement would have prevented Columbine. I’ve said it hundreds of times, if Harris and Klebold’s parents had just gone snooping through their own home they would have discovered what was going on. Whether or not they would have done anything about it is a different story. So maybe Mr. DeAngelis is right and Columbine was inevitable.
He also addresses the two cowardly scumbags’ motives and their mutant followers…
“Where I really struggle is, what caused so much hate in those kids’ hearts that they would kill their classmates and their teachers and they would kill themselves? You’re talking about kamikazes, but the kamikazes had a deep national and religious reason to do what they did. With Klebold and Harris, there was only this aspect that they had to do it so that their names would live forever. And you can go on these Web sites that are dedicated to them, and it’s like they do live forever.”
What caused so much hate is that they are one of those from their generation who believe that the world is fair and that the world owes them everything. It’s not and it doesn’t. And as far as their mutant followers are concerned they buy into every myth about their cowardly heroes, mainly the myth that they were bullied.
However, I think that they live forever due to their cowardly and violent legacy. Their mutant followers are just a mere footnote.
