The internet has exploded with various tweets and Facebook post cheering the deaths in Las Vegas. These days nothing the left does surprises me, but I take some consolation from learning that one of these evil persons has been fired, from CBS.
Geftman-Gold wrote in a Facebook post comment how she didn't have any hope that Republicans, "Repugs," would "ever do the right thing," and that she isn't sympathetic to the shooting victims because country music fans are often "Republican gun toters." The Daily Caller was the first to report on her comments.
"If they wouldn't do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing," Geftman-Gold wrote on Facebook. "I'm actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters."
The woman, a graduate of Columbia Law School and current resident of Brooklyn, is clearly Jewish. I mention this not as some kind of anti-Semitic screed, but to point out how "fear of others" causes people to justify the most horrible things done to those others, just as ordinary Germans justified rounding up and slaughtering millions of their fellow Jewish neighbors. How ironic that the derangement should also strike a woman who likely lost family members to the very same phenomenon.
I can't vouch for what the Mainstream media's up to, but the sites I visit have begun profiling some of the victims shot Sunday night: a nurse who saved his orthopedic surgeon wife's life, a schoolteacher with "an incredible sense of humor", a minister's young wife who dreamed of starting her own business, a school bus driver described as "the ultimate give-forward guy", and so forth. In short, individuals. This CBS executive and her fellows on the left deny the individuality of the victims and cheer their destruction, all because of their fear and distaste for those they do not know. As history has shown, that's a dangerous place to go.
