So apparently New York’s Nanny Bloomberg was out and about, preaching his message of tyranny and virtues of victimhood yesterday, reading names of gun violence victims, when his group of petty tyrants referred to Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a gun violence victim. Ooops! An apology followed.
The organizers of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign on Wednesday apologized for including Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev among a list of shooting victims’ names that were read during a demonstration in Concord on Tuesday.
The apology came after several groups, including the New Hampshire Republican Party, blasted the Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign for included his name.
Alex Katz, deputy communications director for the Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign, said rally organizers relied on a list compiled by Slate.com of people killed by guns since the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., “and his name was on the list.”
His name was on the list. He was killed by police in a gun battle, after killing several innocents, including a child, and maiming scores of others. But his name was on the list.
No one bothered to read the list.
No one bothered to proof or prepare for a public recitation of murder victims.
They simply read the list – mindlessly – without giving thought to each and every name.
This cheapens their supposed cause – as if it wasn’t cheap enough. It negates their assertion that they care about each and every victim. Hell, they don’t even bother to think about the names, and that there were people who bore those names, whose loved ones miss them.
This doesn’t honor the victims of gun violence. It merely points out the mindless, droning, senseless political agenda of Bloomberg’s group – without thought to actual victims – without consideration to what may actually stop further violence – without thought at all.
Just another name on a list.
This is what Bloomberg and the Mayors Against Illegal Guns group thinks of those innocent people murdered by evil shitbags. Nothing but names on a list.
