Oregon Teen wanted to be like the Columbine Murderers the Media turned into Celebrities

Week in Review

Sandy Hook, Aurora, Tucson and Virginia Tech were crimes caused by the Second Amendment.  Or so argue the Democrats.  Who want to use these episodes to press for their long-desired gun control legislation.  But the guns these people used weren’t the cause of their murder sprees.  Their mental health problems drove them to commit murder.  But instead of addressing the failures of our mental health system we focus on the guns.  Because the Democrats have long had a burning desire to pass gun control legislation.  Because gun bans will make the world a safer place (see Records: Teen wrote detailed plans for school plot by JONATHAN J. COOPER posted 5/28/2013 on AP).

An Oregon teen accused of planning an assault on his high school wrote detailed plans to “shoot and throw bombs throughout the school,” then kill himself before engaging with responding police officers, according to court documents released Tuesday…

At about 11:10, he would begin blasting music from the car while walking toward the school, a napalm firebomb in one hand and a duffel bag in the other.

“Drop duffel. Light and throw napalm, unzip bag and begin firing,” the notebook said. “Cooly state: ‘the Russian grim reaper is here.'”

The line is apparently a reference to the 2003 film “Bad Boys II.”

The plan went on: “Throw a smoke bomb prior to walking in. Proceed to enter the school, then shoot and throw bombs throughout the school. Kill myself before S.W.A.T. engages me.”

The detective wrote that the notebooks indicate that Acord “compares himself to both Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold,” the teenagers who killed 13 people at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999 before turning their guns on themselves…

On Monday, Acord’s mother, Marianne Fox, issued a statement through a Corvallis lawyer, Alan Lanker, saying the teenager struggles with a rare form of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

This was in Oregon.  Oregon isn’t even a red state.  It’s a blue state.  So if anything they must have an anti-NRA attitude there.  So it wasn’t a gun culture pushing this kid to a bomb crime.  It was mental health problems.  According to his mother.

Thanks to the Left’s relentless coverage of Columbine they turned those two kids into heroes for others like them.  Every kid that was ever pushed around by a bully now dreams of doing the same thing.  Thanks to the celebrity the media gave them.  They really need to stop making these people sound so awesome to others suffering from mental illness.  If they didn’t go wall-to-wall with coverage perhaps this kid would have never heard about that mass murder.  And never planned his.

Once again a person suffering from mental health problems chose a soft target for his crime.  A school.  Which is a gun-free zone.  Why?  Because he didn’t want anyone shooting back at him.  And once someone did arrive on the scene with a gun he would stop murdering innocent people.  And kill himself.  The lesson here?  If there were people with guns at our schools people wouldn’t make plans to murder unarmed people there.  Because all they want to do is kill a lot of innocent people before someone can hurt them.  This is the problem with taking guns away.  It doesn’t stop bad people from doing bad things.  It just makes it harder for good people to protect themselves from bad people.  Who are trying to shoot them.  Or throw bombs at them.

Tucson Arizona Shooting Rampage, Representative Gabrielle Giffords Shot in the Head

Posted by PITHOCRATES - January 8th, 2011

Attacks on Government often by Nutcases Acting Alone

Calm down.  Take a breath.  It’s bad enough we’ve had such a tragedy.  But we don’t need to politicize it.  Families have suffered horrific losses.  So back off.  Don’t use their grief to score cheap political points.

Here’s a thought.  Let’s wait for the facts.  They have someone in custody.  Appears to be a lone gunman.  He may have had a ride to the store.  It’s a little sketchy now.  So we wait.  And let the criminal justice system do its job.  Other politicians should take precautions as they see fit.  Or as their security people advise.  History has shown, though, that attacks on government officials are often by nutcases acting alone.  So if history repeats, as it often does, this horrid episode may be an isolated incident.  Little solace for the victims today, but at least it may be an isolated incident.

And speaking of history, let’s just take a look at some nutcases from our past.  To try and keep things in perspective.

Nutcases Acting Alone – A Rogues Gallery

John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln.  Booth was a nutcase.  His successful acting career went to his head.  He was very full of himself.  Pompous and arrogant.  And a bit flamboyant.  Life was a stage and he was always performing.  And he thought that he could change the world.  General Lee had already surrendered the Army of North Virginia.  The South was defeated.  And Lincoln was going to make their defeat as painless as possible.  He gave explicit orders to Generals Grant and Sherman.  There would be no reprisals.  No trials.  No executions.  Just peace.  And union.  But Booth hated Lincoln and abolition.  So he killed Lincoln.  And the South would pay the price during a difficult Reconstruction.

Charles J. Guiteau assassinated President James Garfield.  Guiteau was a nutcase.  He thought he was largely responsible for getting President Garfield elected.  He didn’t.  He wanted an ambassadorship.  Didn’t get one.  He then felt he had to kill the president.  And did.

Leon Czolgosz assassinated President William McKinley.  Czolgosz was a nutcase.  He had an unhappy childhood and blamed America for it.  Read a lot about socialism and anarchism.  Wanted to overthrow the American government.  And stick it to the rich.  So he started at the top.  And killed the president.

Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President John F. Kennedy.  Oswald was a nutcase.  The consummate loser.  Another one who felt life in America was unfair.  Read a lot of communist literature.  Defected to the Soviet Union.  But the Soviets didn’t really want him.  He eventually came home and was depressed when the press ignored him.  He tried to help the Cubans.  But the Cubans didn’t really want his help.  When they announced the route of the presidential motorcade was to pass in front of the building he worked in, he figured out how to right all the wrongs in his life.  He killed the president.  And he is now known as that pathetic loser that killed JFK.

See a pattern?

The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and Columbine

When Timothy McVeigh blew up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building the Left politicized it.  Said talk radio was to blame.  But McVeigh was a nutcase.  He wasn’t working for a larger organization.  If there was a larger organization involved, they would have stopped him.  Because the attack was stupid.  There was nothing to gain.  And everything to lose.  Did the country change after the bombing?  Perhaps.  A little.  But not in any way McVeigh would have wanted.  The Big Government he feared just got bigger.

McVeigh acted alone at the site.  But he had some help carrying out his stupid plan.  Some friends who were as delusional as he.  Sometimes losers band together.  Like those losers in Columbine.  Pissed off at everyone for their pathetic lives.  So they went on a shooting rampage.  To get even with everyone who was well adjusted and happy.

There are only three sure things in life.  Taxes.  Death.  And nutcases.  Just waiting to do something stupid to get a little attention.

There are Better Ways of Getting Attention

I wasn’t in Arizona, but I can probably guess a few things about the shooter.  Probably unhappy.  Lonely.  Pissed off at the world.  And probably not all that bright.  If he was into politics, it was probably along the lines of a Leon Czolgosz or a Lee Harvey Oswald.  It would be more of a plea for attention than a serious interest in politics. 

But there are better ways of getting attention.  Like trespassing into a horse barn and videotaping yourself as a horse sodomizes you (true story).  Of course, that guy died from complications from a torn rectum.  But, boy, did he get a lot of national attention.  And the horse was none the worse for wear.  Now I’m not advising anyone to get intimate with a horse.  I’m just saying there are other ways of getting attention other than shooting innocent people.  The nutcases out there should just try thinking outside the box for a change.  Enough of the killing of innocent people already.

Our condolences go out to the families during this most difficult time.
