We get it: Bobby Jindal is desperately trying to be relevant. But man has he chosen a horrible way to do it. The Louisiana governor blamed the Oregon community college shooting on video games (we’re desensitized to violence), abortion (we don’t value human life) and bad parenting. And what he had to say to the shooter’s father, who is dealing with a great deal, is just cruel:
“This killer’s father is now lecturing us on the need for gun control and he says he has no idea how or where his son got the guns.” … “Of course he doesn’t know,” Jindal said. “You know why he doesn’t know? Because he is not, and has never been in his son’s life. He’s a complete failure as a father, he should be embarrassed to even show his face in public. He’s the problem here. He brags that he has never held a gun in his life and that he had no idea that his son had any guns,” Jindal continued. “Why didn’t he know? Because he failed to raise his son. He should be ashamed of himself, and he owes us all an apology.”
So much for a compassionate conservative.
Team Blackness also the murder of yet another trans woman of color (that makes 18 this year), more stupidity out of Ben Carson’s mouth, and Obama’s apology to Doctors Without Borders.
