Mass Shootings And The New Generation Of Young American Zombies
JoeClarke.Net | 12/17/2012 | JoeClarke.Net

Posted on 12/17/2012 8:43:58 AM PST by joeclarke

Adam Lanza (Connecticut School Kid Killer), Jared Loughner (Killed and wounded, including Gabby Giffords), T.J. Lane (Recently killed fellow classmates in Chardon Ohio) ,Brogan Rafferty (Teen conspired to kill Craigslist job applicants), James Holmes (Shot up theater dressed as orange haired Batman Joker), SeungHui Choi (Virginia Tech Massacre), Anders Brevik (2011 Norway Attacks)

I cannot recall a time in U.S. history where there was such a proliferation of younger conscienceless males, who created so much death and destruction in one generation  in American society - outside of war.

Even during the Vietnam Era, many of us returning vets were admittedly "not quite right," but we were nothing like the description given to us by the liberal left as a bunch of  "psychos." Today, the U.S. has spawned a generation of teens-young adults, who have been systematically taught not to judge themselves with something called a conscience, as they have been simultaneously taught to ignore the notion of an overruling God.. "Thou Shalt Not Kill" is only one of those basic commandments that has been purged from school curriculum, because teaching such would "violate the (mythic) separation of church and state." The ACLU is perpetually threatening schools, which eventually back down, from doing anything that hints at being a religious endeavor. So, if there is any common conception about what may be termed "good" (from the word "God")," it is disallowed, and  anything that is not good, is encouraged. IOW Good is out, and Bad is OK in the government schools and other institutions.

Adding to the injury, American liberal churches are more concerned  about marrying gays or saving the planet through preaching Green sermons and other feel good platitudes, as opposed to preaching the depravity of man along with Heaven Sweet and Hell Hot sermons.

I will not excuse the young men for their murderous activities, no matter if they were diagnosed as ADHD, and therefore  exempt from school discipline,  but it should be obvious that most of these men come from broken families encouraged by liberal divorce laws,permissive church policies, and psychologists. It is so tragically ironic that the very same schools which have ousted God and prayer from the public institutions, are the very same which suffer the consequences of the conscienceless youth, who have been promoted by the socialized, secularized, liberal Left. The Left has convinced us that fathers are not needed as family participants, as custody is usually granted to the divorcing mother who is the court preferred provider and role model - even for boys. So, how's that been working out, Great Society?

After all, the Dems just publicly booed God, for whatever reason,  not understanding that the first line of prevention or inhibiting of  crime (sins), is the conscience, as directed by the God of our fathers.Thou Shalt Not Kill.

Its not just Christmas that has been more under attack by the libs, its the entirety of Christianity, including the injunction Not To Kill, or Not To Commit Adultery,  which have been  savaged by the socialists, who prefer man's remedies to God's. If life means so little to our brilliant academicians like Princeton's  ethics prof, Peter Singer, who not only believes that pre birth abortion should be encouraged, but that post birth "aborting" of troublesome living children could be ethical, how easy it is for this sort of morality to trickle down from the bloody ivory towers of our higher learning institutions - into the psyches of our  conscienceless youth?

I have been hearing on the cable news rubber chicken circuit that no other countries have this sort of problem - serial massacres at such a high rate as in the United States. I have to remind them that Islam  is way ahead of the United States in its demolition of school children, and Mexican massacres are more horrific - although those mass killings are aimed more at adults. Europe and Canada are more homogeneous,  so that non-differing cultures are more likely to get along with one another (as opposed to needing to kill each other), as opposed to the myriad of American cultures which are not quite melding as diversity engineers predicted. And, if you compared the millions of Europeans who "saved up," and went to war against other Europeans - twice in two world wars in the last century - the Europeans could be seen as more savage toward one another when compared to the U.S.. Taking guns from Americans will not make us more like Europe or Canada. We are too much different from them, sometimes for the worse, sometimes for the better.

We do not have to wait for a Zombie Apocalypse, our society has eclipsed into one.

Not to mention, fifty years ago, Adam Lanza would have been shipped off to the asylum as soon as his mental issues became clear. But according to our “all wise” courts, that's inhumane and unconsittional, so these people are free to roam the streets, (which is also much of the homeless problem) as their families can't handle them.

A State Hospital for the insane located in my general area was closed down about 40 years ago. Within a few weeks, one of its former inmates murdered a young, female college student.

Today, all over the nation, jails are the only place where the insane are incarcerated and that’s only after they commit heinous crimes.

Very well written. We're a sick society but have not always been so. Our local abortion mill (the only one in North Dakota) slaughters a grade-school class every week. Obama voted in the Illinois senate to allow abortion survivors to die. Now he is supposed to have the moral leadership in this case?!

I’m sorry if this offends, but this is where liberal logic can lead, even if they won’t admit it to themselves: If we had only aborted those kids before they were born, they wouldn’t have been the victims of a mass murderer.

I heard on the news this morning that teachers were praying with the children while the chaos was going on. Wonder if the ACLU will file a lawsuit.

Think about this folks. Watch your kids play video games, the first person war games that they love to play so much. They are very vivid and and the modern graphics are very realistic. They enter a building and kill everything that gets in their way and when they enter a room they kill everyone in it.
Does this sound familiar??? Almost all of our children who play these games understand that it is just a game. The majority of our children do not use the game as a simulator for a mass killing. BUT a few who are emotionally and/or mentally challenged do use them as a trainer for real life attacks. I have never posted an anti game post before. My own son loves these games and he is the most gentle soul I know of. I'm sure we all know many like him but all the kids out there playing these games are not like them. There are a few who do not disconnect and take these new skills into the real world. This is exactly what I believe happened in this last tragedy. The road the liberals are on is not going to work. They are not going to get gun confiscation legislation through the House and they are not going to control the people who commit these crimes. Nor will they begin to see that these video games in the hands of those who have a very loose grip on reality and normal relationships are just in training for the next big real world shoot. When the next tragic event happens, and it will happen, the gun owners in this country will be treated like criminals as they will be screaming to take away our guns. And the population that these killers come from will be patted on the back and treated as if they are no threat at all. Then mom and dad will take them to wally and by them a new game because it keeps them occupied and happy.

When you take away Sandlot baseball, and all other natural activities for young men, what do you have left but boredom and no way to release their energy.

When that is done, substitute artificial activity, "video games" to train their minds to do the unthinkable.

When they don't conform: some School administrator will tell the parents their child need Ritalin, and the parent conforms for if they don't the school will make sure they do via courts perhaps.

If Ritalin does not subdue them, find another drug.

Now send the complete out of control young boy or girl home for the parents to handle.......and the final results are.....tragic.

Adam Lanza at one time had a school psychologist, this alone will destroy any self esteem of any young person. All his classmates would know this and make fun of them. My gosh, what is happening? May as well have given him a sign to wear that said, "I'm crazy".

Not sure what to make of this:

(from Before It's News)

The father of Connecticut school shooter Adam Lanza, Peter Lanza, was the tax director for General Electric, a corporation that paid -0- taxes on 14.2 billion dollars in profits last year. According to Fabian4Liberty, Peter Lanza was scheduled to testify in the ongoing global LIBOR scandal.

In what could only be described an amazing coincidence, the father of Colorado Batman shooter James Holmes, Robert Holmes, was also a LIBOR witness in his position with FICO. According to the link at FICO, Robert Holmes was a ‘Fraud Scientist’.

I’ve seen an allged facebook for the CT shooter where he self identified as “anarchist communist” and read elsewhere he was a homosexual.

Anyone verify either of those? Thanks.

Yes that too, thank you for adding that one.

Bring back the sandlots, cowboys and indians games (sorry if that offends someone, make it cowboys and islamist), football, hide and seek, king of the hill, give them CHORES to do.

Whatever it takes to wear off their energy.

That in a nutshell is the whole problem, imo.

I guarantee you that if that were brought back, those kids would be in bed by 9 p.m.completely worn out.

but, then the parents would be charged with child abuse.

The problem is there will always be those anti-social kids who won't do those things with other kids....if 99.99999% of all kids are ok, it still takes just that one loose cannon to create a tragedy like this.

Antidepressant drugs and first-person shooter video games make a very bad combination. (The games themselves are not the issue - for reference, see South Korea...)

I’m wondering how many of the remaining liberals on my friends list would unfriend me if I pointed out that 50 millions babies murdered in the womb moves them not, but a few years after they are born, someone shoots them to death, ( I could call it post natal abortion, but that might be going too far) and they are horrified, and are gurgitating all of their worn out theories about gun control to prevent it from happening again.

Yes, that is true, one loose cannon. Yet that one loose cannon has always been in Society. Something else is happening and a growing trend.

When there is an anti social kid...it is the School that recognizes this and informs the parents to put them on some DRUG...if that one don't work, give them another.

Anti social does not mean anything, many people "loaners" can be classified as anti social, when they are not. They just mind their own business, not gossipers, or large parties, etc.

Many would say "What's wrong with them", truth is NOTHING, they are just not shallow people and want to be left alone, but society can provoke these people until they get mad and then society can say "SEE, we told you something was wrong"

the myriad of American cultures which are not quite melding as diversity engineers predicted.

Folks used to talk about a "melting pot" analogy. People came from all over the world -- but when they came here, they could be Americans. Sure, some brought Polka music, some brought Pizza, and some brought matzoh balls. But it all came together and added to what it meant to be American. And everyone looked up to the Constitution, and George Washington, and everyone understood that in December, you had a good chance of hearing people say "Merry Christmas!"

Now it's a Salad Bowl. Nothing melts together. This group hates that group -- always has. People get offended -- don't say anything that might offend them! It goes on and on. Being American means almost nothing. We're just a big old mean place and lots of tribes reside here, and the tribal leaders like to tell everyone why the other tribes are bad people.

The push for Diversity and Tolerance is driving this country apart. As it was intended to do.

Exactly right.

I would guess about 75% of FReepers, and 90% of Daily Kos posters, are "loner" types.

Does that mean FReepers pose a threat of shooting up a classroom, or a theater, or a mall? Heck no.

Now I would be a bit more worried about Daily Kos posters doing such a thing; but even with them, I think the likelihood is infinitesimally small.

OWS people, otoh, are a definite concern. As far as violence goes, we've already seen proof that a segment of OWS-ers are vandals and rapists, at a minimum. But then, OWS types might not be typical loners. (Not that I've ever met an OWS-er, but my suspicion is they're loud, gregarious types, like Abbie Hoffman.)

There's a fairly new book out called "Quiet" I've been meaning to read. It's about how we have turned into such a social society and, like you said, introverted, shy and others have been deemed to have a problem. This social society to me has become a noisy society. Everyone talks over everyone else and interrupts each other. If you don't really enjoy socializing every free minute, people think you aren't friendly.

I was called shy as a child. I pushed myself to become extroverted which was uncomfortable for me and caused me much stress and I've always felt clumsy socially.

I think the difference is we used to institutionalize violent psychos based on evaluation(s) by competent professionals. Now (typically), they can only be involuntarily committed (if the state has such a law) if a cop, doc or judge deems them an immediate danger to themselves or others - and even then - only until they are mentally stabilized. Then they can check themselves out back on the streets in most cases.

The other alternative is to wait until they snap and commit a crime. If ("if") they are convicted, they go to prison and *might* get some treatment.

Bottom line: In a rush to be more compassionate, caring and to avoid hurting their feelings, through lib-progressive, touchy-feely, politically correct policies & legislation, we've basically inflicted unknown numbers (I don't know if they are even tracked anymore) of potential lunatic time-bombs upon society.

I'm not saying everyone with mental health issues should be institutionalized, but I am saying that competent professionals should have that option, subject to some due process. However, if a competent professional deems someone dangerous and the family, friend, or other person (professional, Cop , Judge, *whoever*) argues against it and the time-bomb goes off -- then all those who argued against institutionalizing the lunatic should be held responsible. Fully. As if they committed whatever atrocity themselves -- which I believe they did via proxy (the lunatic).

Just my opinion.

You got my point Superbly. Thanks

We pose no threat although I have been tempted a few times. LOL

Such as when a relative vacationed at my house to long, or a neighbor who wanted to coffee cloche everyday, (go home and find something to do, leave me alone).grrrrrrr.

There is a definite problem with the Insane Left, DUer's, OWer's, etc. Mentally unstable for sure.

I must get that book. You have expanded well on what I was trying to get at.

""""If you don't really enjoy socializing every free minute, people think you aren't friendly.""""

So True, and I like quiet. Mainly because I grew up with a mother that was a non stop talker, same thing over and over. You could not get a word in edgewise, but then she asked me why I didn't talk to her. I said WHAT? WHEN can I? With that she went on talking like I never said anything. lol

One day I stopped her and said "Mother, how is it you can think of so many things to say, and what possesses you to say it after you think of it, how does your mind work?"

She said "Some things just have to be said", I give up so did my dad. Problem was she was really just insecure as was all her siblings, we just dealt with it.

Advice to you....be comfortable with who you are. I am, all the others don't care. They really just want you to be as miserable as they are, or as I call them GARBAGE Collectors (gossipers). lol

There is some major problems with all this. Not sure what a good solution would be, but if a parent feels their child needs help and backed up by some professional, there definitely needs to be some help available to them.

If the child is of age, and the parents suspect something, THEY should be able to go before a Judge and seek help.

Sometimes this is not the easy answer either, some parents may just want to get rid of their child and have them declared insane when they are not.

A psychologist can themselves make a person CRAZY. I'm not one, but I guarantee you that I can, with many questions and continuous suggestions, I too can DRIVE someone crazy and ready for the loonie bin. Only I would know the truth of what happened, and act innocent and protected by my Degree. Psychology 101, are you angry now? (not you)

Year ago, I read some of a psychology college book. My gosh, I thought at the time they have to be CRAZY themselves to believe all they are studying and then impose it on the public. WHAT POWER and control they have...and that is SCARY.
