Are too stupid to understand the answers. Even as they recite all of them.

Little is known yet about this shooter’s history — and I refrain from using his name, since infamy is part of what these shooters seek — but so far, he fits the profile of those who’ve come before, the rage-induced young men we first encountered through Columbine and later Sandy Hook, Aurora, Charleston, Virginia Beach, the STEM school shooting in Colorado, Charlotte, the Poway synagogue shooting in California, the Louisiana shootings in two parishes, the Sebring shootings in Florida (those last six this year alone), the Mercy Hospital shooting, the Thousand Oaks shooting, the Tallahassee yoga studio shooting, the Jacksonville Landing shooting, the Art All Night shooting in New Jersey, the Santa Fe HS (Texas) shooting, the Nashville Waffle House shooting, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS shooting — and far too many more to mention, but all with one thing in common.

The ever-incubating mass shooter, these young men nurturing their anger through first-person shooter games, violent pornography, through racism and a fascination with guns and violence, is our greatest, most stubborn and pressing threat — more so, I would argue, than Islamic terrorism or Russian hacking or immigration or trade wars.

They (every one of them needlessly on the same psychotropics) certainly can’t be angry about the “Russian” delusion, the decline, the IMMIGRATION, the budding Sharia, nor the usury, the sodomy, the obesity, the stupidity, and the diversity. Nope. Must be Trump’s fault. The “clips.” “Racism.”

If you’re one of these idiots, and the present levels of violence offend you, then consider removing to a desert island before the coming show starts.
