Politics of Tragedies
« on: May 16, 2022, 03:11:16 PM »
Continued from these posts
Am I the only one who finds it so heartless when every Dem politician puts something about gun control in their initial messages? Are you really screaming politics when 10 families are grieving right now?
Ok I'll bite - people that believe (politically) in gun control don't think that this is offensive or insensitive; on the contrary, they feel they're properly commemorating the victims deaths by trying to avoid this happening in the future, and there's no better time to do it than when the paint is still wet.

And you feeling otherwise is because of your political beliefs. Hence: wrong board.
Both sides grab the first opportunity to capitalize on a tragedy to further their agendas. Democrats and Republicans are fairly equally shamelessly opportunistic. It's basic human nature to want to identify a cause of a tragedy and take action to make one feel like it won't reoccur. All humans do this with all tragedies. It's not just politicians.
This is real taking advantage of a tragedy. It does not accomplish what @Euclid wrote nor what @drosenberg88429 wrote. It is simply using it to be divisive and get clicks.

Do you find it heartless when they are screaming gender when families are grieving? 
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

It's not politics. Seatbelts were mandated on cars after people died over and over again.
 The mantra 'guns don't kill" is gaslighting. It's like the chelm story of building a hospital under the bridge without a guardrail, because building a guardrail was political.
