    I understand when a moderator takes this post down but this "theory" of white male privilege applied to this lonely looney tune killer at Sandy Hook is an out and out crock of shit.

    Blame it all on the white man. Idiots like Chris "Tingles" Matthews and Red Neck Ed Schultz are pushing this theory on everybody now. Try 60 years of liberalism shoved down our throats. It ain't workin'. More and more secularism, more and more violence. We need to try something else.

    I ask you the same question. Recommend something. It has got to be better than what we have been subjected to.

    @PoliticalSpice
    Are you telling me that whatever we have been doing is good for this country? It should be self explanatory to most. We need to have places of treatment for the mentally ill in our society. The liberal experiment of giving them total freedom to act as they wish with no accountability has not worked. We have attacked tradition in this country to the point where some secular idiots want to ban all religious holidays and even the mention of God in any public venue. Looking at the state of things in this country and now especially with a far left President, it appears we are headed down the slippery slope even faster than was predicted. We murder little unborn babies. While we don't take assault rifles to them, we use forceps and other utensils to crush their innocent little scalps, in order to suck them out of the womb. We are acceptable of conduct now that was deemed reprehensible for most years of my life. We allow pornography yet women protest about rape. When evidence clearly shows a correlation between porn and violent sexual crime, the civil libertarians rear their ugly heads and scream "censorship". I could go on and on but it is obvious we need a return to more traditional values in this country. The loony left has a stranglehold on this country and don't tell me you can't see where it is taking us.

    this is ridiculous let me guess whoever wrote this story I thought the president campaign didn't racially divide us enough.

    @Denizen_Kate We know almost nothing about mental illness and as near as I can tell, we are doing next to nothing about it.

    Somebody either forgot their meds when they wrote this one or dropped too much acid .... Never heard anything so stupid to try and explain something so tragic .

    Most likely forgot their meds. I've known many acid heads and used the stuff myself way back in my wild youth, and none of us were this stupid.

    Okay, let me get this right. So Adam Lanza felt privileged as a white male so he went and killed other white males? I'm scratching my head here. Hey, liberals, can one of you break this down for me. I'm truly stuck here.

    @stepped_in_it - But then liberals would have to label that Male Privilege. Specifically, why would he kills white people if he felt whites were privileged? And people wonder why I don't support expanding the mental health industrial complex.

    Don't be stuck. It means that white males have historically been way more privileged can other minority groups. But now that's all changing will the fast rising tide of latinos in this country and the election of Btrack Obama twice.

    The result is that white males are seeing their advantage slipping away and others catching up surpassing them which leads to the frustration of many of them and most noticeably Rush Limbaugh.

    @Laradian - I understand the moronic assertion of White Male Privilege. I just don't understand why one who thinks they are privileged as a white male would kill other white males. If this theory you proposed held an ounce of sense then white males would go after those who they feel are marginalizing them. So in that theory Lanza would have shot up a school of minorities. Again, I cannot support expanding the mental health industrial complex when they promote these ridiculous unproductive theories.

    @Neo_NtheMatrix

    This frustration is manifesting itself through violence perpetrated by these individuals. Their hopes and dreams have been stamped "Canceled" so they won't others to feel the pain but they are going through.

    PolitixDain--PLEASE post a follow-up to convince us that you've printed your article as a bad joke, or part of an assignment in a psychology course or desparation to meet a monthly quota--I really don't want to feel disdain for Dain!!

    I thought Dain's article was criticizing this ridiculous theory about "white male privilege," not endorsing it. I get that especially from the last line, "it's an odd kind of privilege."

    @marianjames
    Well, for starters, I feel that Dain's purpose is to provide a platform for meaningful discussion on relevant, substantial people, places or events. Perhaps I'm to close-minded, but his entire article seems to fall short of those criteria. Then, unlike yourself, I'm left to think he's neither endorsing or criticizing the theory of 'White Male Privilege'. He describes the concept as 'novel' and 'provocative'. Those are rather noncommittal adjectives. So, I can't see how's he's coming down on either side of the issue. Finally, I feel like he's concluding Adam Lanza is a questionable fit for the prestigious status 'privileged white male'. That's like Dain telling us he's made the astonishing discovery that water doesn't fuel fire well. One last thought; I doubt many mass murderers fit the personality type described.

    Hmmm..... It seems to me that liberals, especially white liberals, hate white people. White liberals love to point out violence committed by white folks but they completely ignore all the violence committed by non-whites. As a friend once told me, Liberalism is truly a mental disorder.

    Yeah i've had a pretty respectable opinion of most of your article's up to this point Dain. Uhhmm what can I say other than this is one of the stupidest articles i've seen in awhile. I would say Secularism and rampant Liberalism in this country are the root of the problem. Did you hear of any shootings like this in the 50's, 60's,70's,80's? Yeah that was rhetorical. Our country rejecting moral values and the traditional family are the base of this issue.

    @Calfkiller well, you're the one who mentioned it, so i thought that you knew something that i don't. if you're referring to a 'societal moral standard', by definition it doesn't exist. and i've net met one person who is rejecting family values.

    @dances-weebles no i'm just letting you unspring your own trap. I know the drill. you were hoping I would quote the Bible or something similar so you could take a shot at the Ten Commandments, i'm guessing. Or Conservatives in general. I'm more of a Constitutionalist than I am a conservative

    Is this a ploy to make cutting "entitlements" from the budget look like a good response to spree killings? I don't know how anyone could think that any little kids are responsible for cheating them out of their destiny. Seems to me that these shootings arise more from the focus placed on the importance of becoming rich and famous. Like the men (whose names slip my mind) who shot John Lennon and Ronald Reagan, they couldn't get rich without luck and lots of hard work, but they made themselves famous real easy. Witness the mugshots of surviving spree killers smiling broadly for the camera after their arrests. The suicidal ones made sure that their names were known after they died

    The Media makes sure these guys are permanently logged into the history books by just completely saturating the public with pictures, facts, dug up information etc....
    If they would stop making these guys legendary, they might not seek a way to end it all with a bright flash.

    Wow! Why can't people just take responsibility for their actions and quit blaming everything on someone or something , he was crazy, that's the only explanation there is , it wasn't because his parents had loads of money, and also those guns didn't load themselves and jump into his hands, and didn't tell him to shoot those kids !
  • #151

    Well this is the most idiotic theory about the shootings, so of course it will be deemed the most logical conclusion and rich white kids will become illegal.

    I said No; because the theory behind THIS guys definition of white male privilege isn't exactly right- and doesn't fit this particular shooter at all. I would want to say yes; white male privilege does explain mass killings (except in this case) but not because of the reasons this guy states to back up his theory.
    He says; "Every killer makes his pain another's problem," he writes. "But only those who've marinated in privilege can conclude that their private pain is the entire world's problem with which to deal." Actually, I'm not sure wtf he is saying.
    White males who decide mass murder is the best way to make a point (and alot who don't go to that extreme as well) don't think beyond themselves and what THEY feel; they couldn't care less what anyone else is feeling or dealing with .And god forbid someone else have more, or be happy - if he isn't happy then by god no one else is gonna be. Its more of a revenge thing maybe. They might feel that they got a shytty deal for whatever reason and that pisses him off, thinking; Who the hell do they think they are?! After all, "they" probably are responsible for the shytty deal he got dealt in the first place somehow or another,(or so he thinks in his selfish, miserable thoughts).
    Which, the more I think about it, maybe thats what that guys definition meant to begin with. So maybe I oughtta say yes.
