Chris Matthews, ripped into Ben Carson recently during a segment on Hardball. Carson recently said in an interview that the victims of the Oregon UCC shooting should not have just stood there letting themselves be shot. He suggested that they should have rushed the shooter instead.
Chris Matthews, like many of us, has had enough of Republicans fetishizing gun violence and murder as some statement of our “freedom” in America, and how they will do anything to take the blame away from the killer and blame the victims.
Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say ‘Hey guys everybody attack him! He may get me but he can’t get us all!’
Matthews is completely right in his assessment, and this is exactly what Republicans do every time:
They blame the victims of violence, and excuse guns, killers, the gun lobby and their owned Republican lapdogs in government.
Enough is enough with this garbage and Republicans have to be called out every time one of them chooses to just write off mass shootings as some sort of cost of having freedom.
