It’s really easy to answer the question Ã¢â‚¬Å“Who is to blame for the Virginia Tech slayings?Ã¢â‚¬Â – the shooter is to blame. However, there are going to be many, many, many, many other people, ideas, and entities blamed for the shooting. To see where the tally is, I recommend checking out The Blame Game for an up-to-date count. Here are just a few (my comments in parentheses after each blame):
It’s the fault of violent video games. (I was expecting idiot Jack would make this claim – glad to see someone tracking this info)
It’s the first victim’s fault. (it is shameful that anyone would even suggest this one)
It’s the Second Amendment’s fault. (Hey, didn’t I already cover this? Why yes, yes I did)
It’s the GOP’s fault.
It’s the Democrats’ fault. (glad we have blame for the left and the right here)
It’s the fault that schools teach that the theory of evolution is fact. (sure – let’s just jump from blaming the schools and blame Darwin himself)
As I write this, the list is up to 56, and more additions are being made based on commentors’ responses. Drop by and see who or what is to blame. This will make it easier for you to join in discussions that avoid blaming the pathetic loser who made up persecution so he could die a cowardly death while believing he was doing something grand.
