Another Mass Shooting Just in Time to Flip the Script


The truth is, we don’t even need to hear the gory details.
We don’t need to know the shooter’s name, his background, what psychotropic meds he was on. We don’t need to know the victim’s names and hear their harrowing tales recanted dramatically over and over on CNN, FOX, and MSNBC.
We don’t have to wonder why the shooter is dead now. We know dead men tell no tales.
If you are wasting your time looking that close at what the right hand was doing, you already missed the sleight of hand magic trick in the left.
All that matters is that stories about Putin calling the U.S.’s bluff in Syria and airstriking of the very ISIS terrorists that the CIA trained, armed, and funded have been knocked off of the mainstream U.S. media’s front page news in lieu of yet another curiously timed mass shooting.
