'Thoughts and Prayers' My Ass, We Need to Take Action on Gun Violence
"A student from the Florida high school that was the scene of a mass shooting Wednesday called out U.S. President Donald Trump over his offering of `prayers and condolences.`
The student, named Sarah Chadwick, who attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, responded to the president`s post on Wednesday evening, in which he wrote: `My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.`
I don`t want your condolences you fucking price of shit, my friends and teachers were shot. Multiple of my fellow classmates are dead. Do something instead of sending prayers. Prayers won`t fix this. But Gun control will prevent it from happening again."
The default response of politicians to natural and man-made disasters is to offer their "thoughts and prayers." After every school shooting that ends in the slaughter of innocent children, politicians offer their thoughts and prayers, twiddle their thumbs, and avoid taking any concrete action that could prevent such massacres.
If I had a dime for every time a politician extended his thoughts and prayers to a grieving community, I would be a cynical but wealthy man.
With all due respect to people of faith who believe in the efficacy of prayer, fuc* thoughts and prayers, the Almighty expects us to take action against evil.
The only time when thoughts and prayers from politicians isn`t hypocritical and cowardly is when they pray before they debate legislation that will curb gun violence.
Thoughts and prayers emanating from President Donald Trump is especially rich considering the buffoon has thoughts only for himself, and the only time he prays is when he begs God not to let him get caught when he screws a porn star or Playboy model.
Kudos to Sarah Chadwick for calling out Trump on his bullshi*, thoughts and prayers from craven politicians are like salt on a wound. Sarah no doubt welcomes thoughts and prayers from her family and friends, but the only words she wants to hear from Trump is what steps he will take to prevent gun violence.
Sarah spoke in a manner in which the vulgar steaming pile of shi* would understand; her words may offend the tender sensibilities of some but I hope they provoke action on the issue of gun violence.
