davidfrum If Edward Snowden had published name of CIA chief in Afghanistan, we’d drone him, right?
Lileks “Overruled, son; we’re going to detonate an atomic weapon a few miles off the coast of a heavily populated area.”
Curious that Toure never mentions his privileged existence as an affirmative action admit to a tony prep school from kindergarten 2 grade 12
Why is #UCSB killer called a gunman when he stabbed three people? Shouldn’t he be a knife man?
Whenever there is a mass shooting I go to the store to buy more ammunition. You won’t take my rights from me.
You should blame virginity before you blame guns for #ucsb shooting.
@txmagca how do we know he thought of himself as white and why should that matter?
Why do people believe that by not covering mass shootings we will get fewer of them? Do they think that fame is a primary motivator?
Should Twitter stop mass shooters’ names from trending? #UCSB
Why do so many shooters tend to have so much unused ammunition? Where does this ammo go once they are dead? #UCSB
@AdamKissel I don’t think we could have standards for things we don’t see as normal.
Why do so many school shooters kill themselves after their rampage? Can our laws really deter madmen?
Mass shootings, like the weather, defy explanations. They may be truly random event. But we always look for someone to blame…
#UCSB shooter chose location where he could “slaughter” girls like animals. Do you think he would have seen them that way if they shot back?
Father of #UCSB shooter asked in 2009 film why religious people commit violence. Maybe he should have asked his secular son.
Do you think media would have aired or commented upon a father who said he wished deceased son had had a gun instead of blaming NRA? #UCSB
Why is it okay to mock #UCSB shooter for being privileged and yet we try to get to “root causes” of Islamic terrorism and don’t mock them?
Would it have been wrong of #UCSB shooter’s parents to buy him a prostitute? Why or why not? Why is a luxury car for a 22 year old okay?
If parents of #UCSB shooter were worried about him & his mental health why did they let him & have a BMW?
Kind of interesting how media isn’t focusing on how #UCSB shooter is product of divorced home. (I’m assuming because he has stepmom.)
As a millennial I’m so bored by boomer effort to make every issue about race & civil rights. We’ve moved on, professional racists.
Why is half Asian-half white #UCSB shooter now only white? Why is Obama only seen as black?
So many culture debates seem to be won by whoever can plausibly claim victim status & label enemies “privileged”. This is weird & boring.
Why are white men always the villain in the racial morality play of our time?
Why did both mixed race #UCSB shooter & George Zimmerman suddenly become white after they got media focus? Isn’t that racist toward whites?
Isn’t it interesting how mixed race #UCSB shooter is now suddenly white so that professional race studies people can say he is privileged?
#UCSB shooter writes in manifesto that he used to play Halo. Ban Halo, not guns.
Obama slips into Afghanistan to visit troops. Such a Bush move.
Surprised to see father of the dead attacking NRA. Why does no one blame BMW for making the car or the knife maker for designing knife?
Todd__Kincannon No idea how my son will die, but I know it won’t be cowering like a bitch at UC Santa Barbara. Any son of mine would have been shooting back
There are far too many specialists who specialize in defending their fiefdom, rather than advancing knowledge.
Our age lacks a sense of humor.
So #ucsb killer loved American Psycho. It’s time to ban Christian Bale, not guns.
