Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to hold myself up as being morally superior to anyone.
But I refuse to rush in and dance up and down on the dead before the bodies are even cold.
I find it disgusting and perverse.
It’s why I didn’t rush here to Patriot Retort immediately after the ISIS attack in Manhattan last week.
And it’s why I said nothing yesterday about the grisly shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
Frankly, I don’t know which is more troubling to me – the monster who murdered twenty-six people. Or the ghouls and parasites who can’t wait to take advantage of what that monster did.
These ghouls and parasites are like the looters after a hurricane. Despite the tragedy and loss they crawl out of the woodwork to enrich themselves.
And I refuse to play a part in that.
Like I said, that refusal has nothing to do with feeling morally superior. Because I’m not morally superior.
My refusal to play along with the ghouls and parasites is born from empathy.
How would I feel if people I loved were brutally murdered by a monster. And within moments the ghouls and parasites descended like vultures to pick the meat from their bodies?
As I said after the Las Vegas mass murder, too many treat this like it’s a parlor game.
Maybe Find the Scapegoat.
Or, perhaps Pin the Blame on the Honky.
These ghouls and parasites scramble about with breathless excitement, treating the dead like bit actors in a story told for their entertainment – a sort of murder mystery game where they play junior detectives.
Or judge and jury.
The @NRA is soaked and bathed in blood. How do its adherents sleep at night?

I’m trying to imagine how the families of those murdered would feel seeing this odious tweet from an equally odious and loathsome woman.
And I can’t imagine it. To be so wracked with grief and pain and have to watch these ghouls and parasites swarm – eager to exploit the horrific murder of people they neither know nor care about.
Have we really become a society so devoid of human compassion?
Are we really doing this?
Not long ago, John Kelly asked if there is anything that is still sacred?
Well, is there?
Does our need to impose our own political agenda on absolutely everything supersede human decency, empathy and compassion?
Can we not — just for a few days — give the town of Sutherland Springs a chance to mourn their dead and grieve in peace?
Because if those were your loved ones lying in the morgue, wouldn’t you want that?
