A Jim Goad take on the gun control caterwauling in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
Before all the blood had time to dry, pro-government zombie toady scribes were shrieking for more “gun control” and insisting that “something” must be done NOW. They trotted out the tired meme that the “gun lobby” is very powerful and has a lot of money behind it—as if the government they dutifully worship doesn’t have far more power and money than the NRA. One went so far as to proclaim that “no person in the United States of America should own a gun, unless they’re a police officer or a soldier.” And of course, “white men” were blamed, albeit by one white man after the next.
Goad cites the mounds of multiple psychotropic drugs found in the systems of so many of these mass murdering maniacs. All those anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, and anti-obsessive crazy concoctions that Big Pharma and the Psychiatry profession push and pump into the systems of the neurotic and the mentally ill, such as: Fluvoxamine, Prozac, Paxil, Mirtazapine, Trazodone, Temazepam, Lexapro, Ambien, Xanax, and Vicodin.
But all prescribed apparently to no avail when it comes to the still-at-large and running free killing freaks of America. Or could it be that these pharmacologic mixtures that attempt to regulate the human mind are the possible cause of these calamities?
Maybe those who claim they’re earnestly seeking an answer to Friday’s bloodbath should focus less on Gunsville and more on Pillsville. But right on the heels of their howling about NO GUNS came cries for MORE PSYCHIATRY. I don’t expect these remnants of 1960s ethics to ever blame drugs for anything. But what puzzles me is their new-found blind support of government. How did they turn from being the harshest critics of “The Man” in the 1960s to being his most brainwashed advocates today?
