Despicable beyond measure:
Filmmaker Michael Moore’s suggestion that showing crime scene photos of the children slain at Sandy Hook will hasten the demise of the National Rifle Association is not getting rave reviews in the shattered Connecticut community.
The left-wing social critic wrote in his blog Wednesday an item titled “America, You Must Not Look Away (How to Finish Off the NRA),” in which he recommended releasing the undoubtedly gruesome photos of the 20 children killed on Dec. 14, 2012, some of whom were shot up to 11 times. Moore said the fact that Americans have “done nothing to revise or repeal” the Second Amendment “makes us responsible.”
“ … and that is why we must look at the pictures of the 20 dead children laying (sic) with what’s left of their bodies on the classroom floor in Newtown, Connecticut.”
Moore predicted a parent of a child killed in the horrific elementary school massacre or another high-profile mass shooting would make pictures available, adding “and then nothing about guns in this country will ever be the same again.”
Jeremy Richman, whose 6-year-old daughter Avielle was killed in the attack by gunman Adam Lanza — a 20-year-old, mentally-troubled local man who later killed himself as police responded — said Moore’s idea is off-base.
“I would be very strongly against that,” an incredulous Richman said when being informed of Moore’s idea.
Another parent of a 6-year-old boy killed in the attack, in Newtown, Conn., was upset that such an idea would be proposed.
“You can imagine what my reaction to that is,” the outraged mom said, declining any further comment.
Can you blame them? I certainly don’t.
I wish like hell liberals would stop shamelessly using children as props, especially when playing dangerous political games with our Constitution. “Offensive” doesn’t even come close to describing it.
