The Left Created This Violent, Degraded Culture: Take a Look in the Mirror, Libs, Before You Blame Guns

The Left Created This Violent, Degraded Culture: Take a Look in the Mirror, Libs, Before You Blame Guns February 19, 2018

Andrew Klavan over at PJ Media begins his article with a Bible verse:

“For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” Hosea 7:8

It’s not your ordinary conservative versus liberal argument that invariably shows up after school shootings.  He writes:

The left wants to defend gangstas and “transgressive” art and antifa thugs — but when the shooting starts, they blame the guns.

The left wants to get rid of feminine modesty and masculine protectiveness and social restrictions on sex — but when the abuse and rape and harassment rise to the surface, they start whining about toxic manhood. Perhaps they should have listened to the Catholic apologist G.K. Chesterton, who wrote about the difference between reforming society and deforming it — a passage that was neatly paraphrased by John F. Kennedy: “Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up.”

Now the left wants to legitimize disrespect for the flag and for Christianity. They want to ignore the rule of law at the border and silence protests against Islamic ideas that are antithetical to every good thing the west stands for. They should look to Europe where all that’s been accomplished. And now, when European women are molested in the public square, the gormless authorities advise them to behave more modestly lest immigrants get the wrong idea. When Islamic knives come out and Islamic bombs go off, the police rush to harass — who? Those who questionthe dictates of the Koran.

He’s not even close to done.  (I’d advise you to read the whole thing.) He even points out that liberals want us to be shocked at Donald Trump’s sexual problems, even though they’ve spent years — decades — defending Bill Clinton.

Klavan was writing this piece, of course, in response to the school shooting that took another seventeen lives last week.  Of course, liberals immediately began blaming guns.

However, the left has created and celebrated a culture of violence and hate in America, through movies, television and music.  And when people with mental illness who were raised on this diet snap, the left blames the weapons. 

Instead, they really ought to look in the mirror.
