The Martian Rants: Politicians and Orlando.: 6/13/2016 23:35:08

Screw off, politicians. I don't want to hear more about your piss-poor immigration plan, Donald Trump. I don't want to hear more about restricting and banning assault weapons (they already are illegal), Hillary Clinton. I don't want to see how you twist a tragedy to fit your political agenda, news media. I want to know just who the hell killed so many in Orlando and I want to know why the hell he did it.

Instead of mourning the loss of at least 49 people at the hands of a radical Islamist madman who was on the terror list, it seems a lot of this god-forsaken nation is just seeing this tragedy as a nother topic in politics. Whether it is to put restrictions on immigration from nations or to crack down on guns, our wonderful politicians are not hesitating to push their agendas using the latest US disaster. It really shows how much they actually care for us.

The two guilty parties I want to quickly diss are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump used the lost lives of these people to further advocate for his plan to temporarily ban Muslims from entering into the US, and even banning immigration from entire nations and nationalities (which is actually more legal than his original plan). He pushes for these things despite our latest terrorist being a US BORN CITIZEN for f*ck sake. Not only does his plan still suck, but it doesn't even make sense to use this tragedy to push his mentally debilitating plan.
Hillary Clinton used the lost lives of these people to further advocate restricting and banning military-grade assault weapons from being owned. Little does she know that these weapons are already illegal and that the AR in "AR-15" stands for "ArmaLite" and not "Assault Rifle." Dumbass. She also went on to say that maybe letting people who are on the terror watch-list have weapons might not be a good idea, which makes more sense than what she says most of the time, but the terrorist in question was not on the watch-list when this tragedy occurred, so again, it doesn't make sense to be using the worst shooting massacre in US History to push that agenda.


Thank you to all around the world who have Orlando and her lost ones in your thoughts and prayers: http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/12/world/gallery/orlando-shooting-reaction/index.html.
I must say, however, that there is one thing in many of those pictures I have linked that I feel sad about. In many of said pictures, you will see the colors of the "Gay Pride" movement, and phrases like, "Rest in Pride." It seems to me that some equate this tragedy as an attack on only the LGBT community. While this was an attack on the LGBT community, this was also an attack on America. The LGBT community lost 49, but the US lost 49, as well. Let us all who are American remember that.

Don't be a f*ckwad.

Agreed, but one nitpick - despite our latest terrorist being a US BORN CITIZEN for f*ck sake. .
His parents were refugees, so without them, it wouldn't have happened.

The thing is, in order to change anything and stop this from happening more it HAS to be politicized. Otherwise it will remain status quo and keep right on happening

Also, given that the AR15 was originally designed for military use and is effectively a variant of the M16 I think it's safe to call it a 'military grade assault weapon' regardless of what the AR stands for

Agree with Richard Sharpe, but we have to keep in mind that the victims aren't pawns. There's a very thin line between caring about how to prevent future massacres like this and just using these deaths to congratulate yourself or promote a political agenda- the former is sympathetic and a proper way to move forward, but the latter is just callous and seemingly oblivious to the nightmares that at least 50 families and communities are facing right now.
