This is a perversion of our political system. Even if each and every nutty mass murderer was a mad hatter from thea Tea Party, that still would not justify shutting down free speech for an entire nation, or labeling all Tea Partiers criminals, or instituting vast new regulatory schemes. Not every local issue is a national issue.
But that point seems to be lost on the left. Bullying, a local problem, is now it’s a national issue, requiring federal assistance. Your toilet is clogged? Get your Congressman on the phone!
James Holmes’ actions had nothing to do with any particular political ideology. They didn’t have to do with the gun laws in Colorado – he ordered much of his ammunition from out of state. Until we stop painting the entire nation with the brushes of local villains like Holmes, we will continue living in the unreality of a left that is always anxious to see the national identity of America as a problem.
