I might like to imagine that EVERY one that takes the lifetime of one other being is ” mentally ill ” …. it is arduous to conceptualize sane human may commit such a hideous crime. BUT I’m sorry Donald Trump this positively is a ” GUNS SITUATION” I’m aghast by the response of my newest put up , it’s fully superb to me how defensive and in denial this nation actually is! You aren’t centered on the horrific tragedy I addressed however extra angered that I’m placing a BIG brilliant highlight on the actual fact it was a “WHITE AMERICAN MALE” terrorist that walked in & killed 26 folks (together with youngsters) leaving 20 severely injured ! All of a sudden …. ” we are all equal ” “human is human” “skin color doesn’t matter ” (NOW neither does gender) “makes no difference if they were male or female” …… BUT these issues completely matter when … somebody fully reliable is working for president (versus somebody who is not) , when a automobile runs over harmless folks whereas professing their love to a GOD totally different from yours , it positive issues to the cops after they beat and even kill harmless folks of shade , it even issues on the airport/on an airplane or in immigration when of us are fully profiled & judged for his or her background . NOW it does not matter if somebody is a person or girl? Well that is information to me and the HH basis as a result of it has been years of preventing for gender equality and the correct to be the intercourse you determine with or marry the one you like! There has ALWAYS been a problem with these topics till NOW. So since this tragedy has occurred (coming off the cusp of Vegas, one other terroristic act by a white American male) DONT START to be all harmless! Gender , race , & faith HAS and continues to matter for all of the incorrect causes & that is solely the start of how backwards this nation is! All of you might be so centered on defending your self, you have fully forgotten that you simply’re not the one one which has to stay on this nation or on this planet! Aren’t you exhausted? Because to be trustworthy I’m fucking sick and uninterested in beginning on a regular basis with tears and in mourning! Let’s unite! Trump by no means wanted to construct a wall for us , we have executed it ourselves! Love!
