The Lynching Campaign Against Women Doesn't Come Out of Nowhere

The epidemic of violence against women and girls in the United States and the terror that results from it is a form of lynching as practiced in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is time to fight against it and the media and social milieu that tolerates and promotes it. And it is promoted. Through TV and movies and video games.

Watching my nieces get on their school bus a few minutes ago and thinking of how they keep repeating that this murderer had no connection to the school or community who knows how safe any girl is in their school today? Listening to them talk about how he copied the murderer in Colorado I've got to imagine that this piece of slime found that as a worthy model for his obviously planned act of attention getting.

We have to realize that in the cable and TV audience, among those who are watching, trying to get the news, there is a lynch mob savoring every detail, every speculation that the on-air voices are broadcasting. The news conferences with the police, seen by normal people as news are like Entertainment Tonight for these degenerates.

We have to put an end to this kind of unintentional glorification of these monsters because there are other monsters looking at them as role models.
