Once again CNN is pissing me off by making this coma girl (remember the bets?) their top story, when the school shooting should really be there. Apparently 10 dead Native Americans on a poor reservation isn’t as big news as a vegetable in Florida who has had her feeding tube removed and inserted a dozen times for the past year and a half.
Brief side rant on coma girl: Plenty of the news photos shown have people holding signs saying, “Have Mercy on Terri.” Are these people for or against removing the feeding tube? Yeah, it’s a complex debate once you throw religion and all that crap into the mix, but after more than a year “living” in this state, I think “mercy” definitely means letting her go. Plus, IT’S WHAT SHE WANTED!
And in regards to the shooting, CNN just changed the headline at least a couple times in front of my eyes… First was something like, “10 dead in Native reservation shooting,” and then a few minutes ago it was, “School shootings suspect may have had neo-Nazi leanings.” This one caught my attention because this link has been floating around the internet all day, clearly showing message posts by the guy, detailing his neo-Nazi beliefs (not “leanings”). And literally 5 minutes later I refreshed CNN and the headline changed to, “School shootings suspect apparently had neo-Nazi leanings.”
*NOTE – As I finished writing this entire post, the headline changed again to, “Alleged neo-Nazi leanings of shooting suspect.”
Reading his message posts, and the responses, got me pretty pissed (as one would expect from a neo-Nazi message board) at the idiotic hypocrisy of a Native American siding with white supremacists, against African Americans and Jews. I won’t even try ranting any more about this because it turns out it was a self-correcting situation, with some unfortunate casualties.
Now, can we just set up a giant coliseum and put all of the neo-Nazis, white supremacists, black militants, Latino gangs, etc… in there together, and let them “discuss” their differences? Keep the rest of us out of it, and leave the fucking schools alone.
