What’s most interesting to me about this article is that it explains something that I missed when people were posting about the chalk drawings with guns. Some protestors at a clinic drew a picture of a gun and wrote “Would it bother us more if they used guns?” Pro-choice tweeters and bloggers posted a picture of it, and that’s all I could see. I thought that it was probably some hipster kid who was trying to be creative but didn’t have any ill intentions. This article notes that another one said “What would Jesus do?” with a picture of a gun.
…That’s a little disconcerting and confusing, to say the least. I don’t think that one was so innocent.
They use scare tactics to make their followers angry and scared, then throw their hands in the air when somebody acts on it. They think they can distance themselves from the extreme consequences of their actions.
Perhaps, in their minds, they can. To the rest of the world? They absolutely cannot.
