Award-Winning Progressive Documentary Film-Maker Michael Moore knows who to blame for the killing spree in Santa Barbara.
We are a nation founded in violence, grew our borders through violence, and allow men in power to use violence around the world to further our so-called American (corporate) “interests.” The gun, not the eagle, is our true national symbol.
So the onus is on us, all of us. We won’t pass the necessary laws, but more importantly we won’t consider why this happens here all the time. When the NRA says, “Guns don’t kill people — people kill people,” they’ve got it half-right. Except I would amend it to this: “Guns don’t kill people — Americans kill people.”
That’s right, it were America what killed them people.
Shame on you, America… go to your room. You’re on Time Out.
