August 07, 2019 "Information Clearing House" - On the day after America’s weekend shooting rampage that killed 31 people and wounded dozens more in El Paso and Dayton, president Trump told the nation in a10-minute address, what he sees as the causes of and cures for gun violence in the U.S.
As causes, he mentioned:
“Racism, bigotry and white supremacy” adding, “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America.”
The internet and social media, saying, “We must shine light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start,” and he added “The perils of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored.”
Mental illness, saying we must “reform mental health,” including “involuntary confinement” of those posing a serious risk to society. He added that, “Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger, not the gun.” One might infer he meant to say that mental illness and hatred cause mass shootings, not guns.
“…the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace. It is too easy today for troubled youths to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately.”
“Red flag laws, also known as extreme risk protection orders”
Having “The Department of Justice… propose legislation insuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly, decisively and without years of needless delay.
Are You Tired Of The Lies And Non-Stop Propaganda?
Try to watch a football game without a warplane flyover, a tribute to a local military “hero” or multiple military recruiting commercials pitching a fun, exciting career.
Drive through any city and count the military recruiting billboards.
Count the number of holidays either directly for the military or usurped by militarism.
Ask how many visits military recruiters have made to your local high schools and if students are compelled to take the military aptitude tests on bogus claims they’re required.
As a final challenge to reality, Trump, who the Wall Street Journal said “has described an invasion at the border in more than half a dozen tweets this year, and in a May statement issued by the White House said ‘hundreds of thousands of people coming through Mexico’ had invaded the U.S.,” made nice and sent “…the condolences of our nation to President Obredor of Mexico and all the citizens of Mexico for the loss of their citizens in the El Paso shooting.”
