Was it a jihadist or just a guy? So the seventeen-year-old girl asks, on hearing the news, landing at once on the central black-comedy question as the annals of American mass murder expand this morning. If the author of the at least fifty dead and more woundedthe word wounded, of course, fails to capture the extent of the maiming, just as the blank word dead fails to capture the dawning of grief for so many familieswas someone who had, even once, communicated with or been radicalized by ISIS, no matter how remote or long-distance that radicalization, or if he was merely a Muslim from a Muslim country, then a massive act of terrorism would have been committed and a militant response, including travel bans and broad suspensions of rights, would be essential. If it was just one more American psycho, then all we can do is shrug and, as the occupant of the Oval Office put it, send warmest condolences and sympathies... President Trump, deprived from birth by some genetic accident of all natural human empathyone should listen to a recently recovered tape of Trump, speaking to Howard Stern, in which he is actually boasting of his indifference to a man he thought was dyingspeaks empathy as a foreign language and makes the kinds of mistakes we all make in a second language that we have barely mastered, placing adjectives in places that no native speaker ever would...
Blah, blah, blah

We need lib-control.
Come and get them. Don't send .gov gunthugs - come personally.
Maybe bo truce w/AINOs!
Gopnik is a registered dumbest person in the universe. He can bite it and chew it.
Of course he didn’t do it, the gun did...
Yeah, ban liberals and their ilk that exist by trying to tear down the fabric of America. Ban all of them...to Cuba.
If Trump had no empathy, he would not have been able to connect with so many people on WWF, or his political campaign, , nor understand where the other side was coming from in business negotiations. Nor relate to Howard Stern's level of banal comedy. Trump relates to a lot of people at a lot of levels...having far more empathy than his opponent in the last election.
I suspect it is lack of instinctively embracing gun-control when faced with a tragedy that the author is selling as a lack of empathy....presumably the author would spontaneously conclude Trump had found this virtue if only he would agree with the agenda. Just as those who disagree with Leftists always do so because they lack virtue....which Leftists are of course free to think, since they really don't believe in objective standards of virtues thus define it themselves.
We have a crime that was almost certainly perpetrated with the use of a weapon gun controls already make illegal (without going through a very stringent process).
So what does the Left do. They demand more laws the criminal minded WILL NOT abide by.
Thus, they seek once again to disarm the public, knowing full well criminals will ignore any new laws, and arm to kill what will then be sitting ducks.
Take all our guns away and the criminal minded will still find a gun to kill with.
If not they’ll kill with a knife, a machete, a hammer, a screwd-driver... and on the list goes.
Liberals are a threat to themselves and others.
There can be no truce.
Government soldiers can kill 58 unarmed victims on the edge of a ditch in a minute and line up another 58 and kill them in the next minute.
There can be no truce with Communist a-holes
Shhh... nobody tell the lefties that when they campaign against the 2nd Amendment they sell more guns and lose more votes!
I wonder if these foul folk have any clue that they sound like National Socialists condemning "untermenschen"?
Come and take them, Gopnik!!!
Is that the pusillanimous little tw@t that wants to take our guns?
There can be no truce with Communist a-holes
That’s a fact.
>>one should listen to a recently recovered tape of Trump, speaking to Howard Stern, in which he is actually boasting of his indifference to a man he thought was dying
I’ve head total indifference from Marky Ramone engaged in an interview/argument with Joey Ramone on Howard Stern’s show (while Joey was dying of cancer). And Howard loved it.
Murder the innocent, attack the freedom of the remaining innocent.
This is the MO of the American Left.
The American Left has to go.
No more of these fascists.
