Dawkins, other prominent leftists express contempt for Vegas victims

The evolutionary biologist and atheist Richard Dawkins tweeted his contempt for white Americans and the Second Amendment of the US Constitution after learning about the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

    “Durn tootin’, great shootin’. Cool dude sertin’ he’s 2nd Mendment rahts. Hell yeah!” Dawkins tweeted, attempting to mock a southern US accent. It appeared to be a reference to the country music festival where the indiscriminate killing of innocent mostly conservative white fans took place.

    He added: “Every country has its psychopaths. In US they have guns”.

    But before, Dawkins had noted his opposition to gun rights. In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in December 2012, he tweeted:

    “‘Guns don’t kill people, crazy people kill people.’ Can you believe anyone could be so STUPID as to trot that out, yet again?” In the case of Sandy Hook mass he rejected the idea that a psychopath could have killed people, but Dawkins seems to have changed his mind suddenly.

    His reputation is staked on his “rational” arguments against religion. Dawkins had no immediate reply to the massive wave of social media criticism his tweet provoked

    His tweet about the Las Vegas shooting came as police continued to update the death toll, and as the wounded fought for their lives in area hospitals, Breitbart reported.

    American late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel said: “they [Republicans] should be praying for God to forgive them for letting the gun lobby run this country.” But he could give no example of the shooter being linked to the National Rifle Association, the NRA, even though he blamed the NRA for the shooting. The gruesome attack killed at least 59 people and left more than 527 others injured.

    Leftists called for increased gun controls, despite the fact that the shooter used illegal weapons. The shooter had an arsenal of at least 42 guns, explosives and several thousand rounds of ammo, police said. Officers recovered 19 firearms, explosives and ammo from Stephen Paddock’s home in Mesquite, Nevada, hours after discovering 23 guns in the Las Vegas hotel room.

    Prominent leftists all over the US were in fact celebrating the killing of white Americans. The Daily Caller reported that a “top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold,” told her followers on social media that she was “not even sympathetic” with the murdered and hospitalized of the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday night. Geftman-Gold said: “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc [sic] country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

    CBS said in a statement Monday afternoon that the employee had been fired.

    Esquire columnist Charles Pierce blamed freedom and the Constitution for the shooting. “The Constitution is not a pact with the devil, nor is it a suicide pact. It is a formalized, legalistic ritual of blood sacrifice… The massacre of country music fans is…. the 273rd blood sacrifice to that one provision of the Constitution this year.” Pierce wrote, without irony.

    Black rapper “Lil B,” or Brandon McCartney, told his million-plus followers in the wake of the shooting that “white people” are “the reason why guns are a problem” and added that if they “put down the gunz” we’d “all be safe”. Currently black people commit a majority of violent and gun crimes in America, according to official US federal crime statistics.

    McCartney dismissed the facts and said that white people were “sheep” because they believed crime statistics. In his words, white people are “followers of imaginary science and numbers”.

    Because white people got all their wealth “from slaves”, that made them “loose [sic] all their cool points”. He nevertheless added that he wanted to enslave “sexy” conservative pundit Tomi Lahren and be her “master”.

    Monday on Fox News Rep. Trey Gowdy, a Republican from South Carolina, told host Martha MacCallum he was skeptical that Stephen Paddock, the alleged attacker, could have acted alone. “It’s an incredible level of premeditation that you don’t ordinarily see,” Gowdy said.

    Gowdy suggested that it was a huge arsenal for someone with no apparent motive.

    “And it is difficult to believe that a single person could have done this without detection. And so, I hope that what comes out of this is people – you know, lots of crime is prevented because a non-law enforcement officer says something. The weapons and whether or not it was altered to become fully automatic and the premeditation of picking a certain hotel room. I think we’re going to find someone along the way was suspicious they should have turned that suspicion into a phone call to law enforcement. It’s an incredible amount of premeditation to not go detected.”
