John F.: Progressive and Proud … results of 40-50 years of Progressivism (schools, media, entertainment, abortion, culture of death) produced the killer who shot the innocent church goers in South Carolina.
Me: John F., your complaint that 40-50 years of Progressivism (schools, media, entertainment, abortion, culture of death) produced the killer who shot the innocent church goers in South Carolina, causes me to take notice and disagree. What produced the shooter was a culture of hatred of African Americans, pointed racism, white supremacy and had nothing to do with education (Roof was a 9th grade dropout), abortion had nothing to do with his upbringing unless you consider his mother didn’t have one and he was a live natural birth, and the culture of death that you cite is also a ruse; most of his growing up years were during republicans holding power and Middle East wars that he was too young to participate in. Media and entertainment may be responsible for the constant fascination with Hitler film footage and first person shooter video games that may have also reinforced the shooters fascination with nazism, Rhodesian apartheid and zombies eating brains. Of course you have to factor in the home in which Roof was raised in, his father was an alleged wife beater, friends and family members were aware of Roof’s BIG plans which were tolerated and allegedly supported with the gift of a Glock … The shooter was not employed over or under the table, unless you consider spending hours crafting his plans, work. Roof was 21, he never encountered a slave or Jim Crow oppression. He didn’t grow up fighting in the Civil War between the States, he admitted that the KKK wasn’t much in SC in his writings, and he hated false patriotism directed at the flag. Really, John, your argument against Progressives is empty. Progressives didn’t create Roof, Southern racism and hatred for ‘uppity n****rs raping Southern women’ caused him to squeeze the trigger.
