This puts the lie to idiots like Dobson who countered that treating the "bullies" (school shooters) nicely wouldn't have helped. WELL SHIT SON AND EMMA BULLYING THE KID SURE AS FUCK DIDN'T HELP MATTERS ANY, NOW, DID THEY‽I didn't see anyone else discuss this, so fuck it, it goes in this thread.
Emma Gonzales, the shaved-head loon who's been making all the fucking rounds in the neoprogressive circuit screaming about how we need to exploit a national tragedy to establish firearm legislation that doesn't even make sense by the pants-shittingly bad standards of congressional Democrats had a rather.... Interesting outburst earlier:
The more perceptive among you might be realizing where this is going already, but since Poe's Law makes fools of us all these days, worry not, I'll piece it together for you:
There hasn't been any discussion of it in the mainstream press (because of course it's not being discussed), but it's apparently something of a bit of public record that Emma Gonzales and her associates had fucking mercilessly bullied Nikolas Cruz (the shooter that led to this) prior to the incident, to the point where the School was acutely aware that Emma Gonzales and other students were fucking doing so over a year before he went on his rampage. Hell, multiple outlets have interviewed students establishing the same fucking thing.
What this means, Kiwi, is that this story just got a lot fucking darker.
This new information suggests that we're looking at a situation where, much like James Alan Kearby, a mass shooter back in 1985 wherein his main reason for doing so was the school repeatedly failing to curtail his abuse, we have the School completely abdicating its responsibilities and allowing other students to harass a clearly-socially-isolated and vulnerable individual, allowing their problems to metastasize, and then proceed to try to capitalize on this when the child they themselves set up goes off the fucking reservation by using the incident to call for a gun ban.
Seriously who the fuck thinks they can bully a kid into NOT committing a school shooting? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Now THERE'S a "conspiracy theory" far more viable than any of the others (like fake ded kids at sandy hook, ugh) - Emma and company purposefully bully a kid to get him to snap and shoot the place up so they can call for gun control? IDK about you but I can totally see that being an actual possible thing.
"WE KNEW THIS KID!" ...and you thought being mean to him was a GOOD idea? The fuck? Yeah loon doesn't even begin to cover this kid's mental state.
