Charlotte and Harriet Childress have penned an article for the Washington Post that is so bad, so devoid of anything even approaching intelligent, that it makes columns by David Frum and David Brooks seem worthwhile. This screed is so bad that Meghan McCain would mock it. Here are some lowlights, as in very dim bulbs
White men have much to discuss about mass shootings
Imagine if African-American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year. Articles and interviews would flood the media, and we’d have political debates demanding that African-Americans be “held accountable.”
Have these two ladies ever heard of Chicago? Black men and boys are slaughtering people, mainly other Black men and boys in Chicago. NO, most of the shootings are not “mass shootings” but the death toll is in the “mass” hundreds annually. And, the politicians, which these two nimrods think would be demanding accountability are silent. In fact most of the blame for “gun deaths” because being shot is somehow worse than being strangled or stabbed to death from politicians and the media is on law-abiding gun owners. Good grief, these two numb skulls disprove their entire theory in the first paragraph! No wonder the Washington Post could not wait to run it!
Oh and it gets worser and worser as these two buffoons keep digging in the Eternal Pit of Liberal Stupidity
If life were equitable, white male gun-rights advocates would face some serious questions to assess their degree of credibility and objectivity. We would expect them to explain:
What facets of white male culture create so many mass shootings?
So many? Seriously? There very, very few mass shootings in America. Of course the media sensationalizes them, and they are horrific but very rare. Far more common are Americans defending themselves with firearms, sorry I do not know the breakdown along racial lines, skin color is unimportant to me
Why are so many white men and boys producing and entertaining themselves with violent video games and other media?
Why do so many White men play violent video games? Well, because they are fun, certainly more fun than sloshing our way through the incoherent ramblings of the Childress sisters. Of course, to be fair, sawing your own thumbs off is likely more fun than reading what these two write.
Why do white men buy, sell and manufacture guns for profit; attend gun shows; and demonstrate for unrestricted gun access disproportionately more than people of other ethnicities or races?
Because there is a long tradition of gun ownership and self-defense here in America. Of course many women and many minorities also honor these traditions, and many White men oppose them, but the Childress Sisters of the Traveling Stupidity are too obsessed with skin color to note that obvious fact. Just yesterday, at the gun range, I was shooting next to two folks qualifying for the CHL’s. One was a young Black woman. Being a man, and therefore a sexist, just ask any Feminut, I noted that she was quite pretty. Two things stopped me from asking her out. First was that she is likely 15- 2o years younger than me. The second thing was that she is a better shot than me. And at some point I would likely make her angry, so….. I kid of course. I never feel threatened at the range. The young woman was entirely comfortable as well. Imagine that, a White man A.K.A. The Source of All Evil according to the Childress sisters, flirting with a black woman at a gun range! I am sure the Childress sisters’ heads would explode!
Why are white male congressmen leading the fight against gun control?
Hmmm, Like Ted Cruz? Tim Scott? Marsha Blackburn? You can bet that Allen West would be fighting against this too, as would Mia Love, if they had been elected last November. The glaring fact is that MOST of Congress are White men, and MOST of those fighting FOR gun control are White men too!
I guess that escaped the minds of the sisters too? Well of course
it did they are college faculty!
Harriet and Charlotte are consultants, authors, and college faculty who have researched, written, and spoken about issues related to social and political change for more than two decades. They have presented their work in person to thousands of people through more than fifty seminars or speeches in ten states. Charlotte and Harriet have published two books and eighteen articles.
Collectively, Charlotte and Harriet have:
• Earned eight college degrees, including one Ph.D. and four master’s degrees.
• Taught college for forty years: pharmacy, engineering, math, physics, chemistry.
• Received close to a million dollars in grants from the National Science Foundation to research math, science,
technology, and engineering education.
• Worked eleven years in R&D and manufacturing in Fortune 500 companies and NASA.
Charlotte and Harriet are identical twins who live near each other in Oregon. They are active in their communities, serving on boards of public and historic parks, schools, and neighborhood and community organizations. They enjoy long walks, camping, commuting by bicycle/walking/bus, organic gardening, cycling, dancing, reading, needlework, backpacking, and cuddling with beloved cats and dogs.
And, as children they fell out of the Stupid Tree, hitting every branch on the way down apparently! These two women are obviously highly educated, yet seem to be completely devoid of any common sense. Their “expertise” seems to be in engineering, math, physics, and chemistry. It certainly is not in the subject they are writing about here. Instead they feel, rather than think their way through what they write in the Post. It is like I say, they are educated beyond their hat size
