This Is Exactly Why ENDO Doesn’t Focus On Mass Murderers

Billy Johnson delivers:

Other gun bloggers can sleep at night, raking in advertising money talking about mass murderers and spree killers.  I’d rather just chill, focus on making fun of the derp, and other things which make me smile.

Those murderers were nobodies when they lived, and should have remained nobodies when they died.  Biggie Smalls said it best “You’re nobody til somebody kills you.”  I suppose the seemingly more true corollary of that in the cases where the murderer lived is “You’re nobody til you murder somebody”.  Name a couple of the victims who were murdered by any of those pieces of shit Billy mentioned in the video.  Oh you don’t know any of the victims?  Me either, and that’s sad.

Youre-nobody-til-somebody-kills-you

I’m not looking for a pat the back. I have ragged on Billy a lot lately for whining, but he really expressed exactly how I feel in this one and I thought it deserved a post.

This is Terrorism 101 – Gain publicity by doing something wrong that end up on the front page of the newspaper.

Billy is good at stating the obvious. If I recall correctly, doesn’t he own a marketing company? I wonder if that has anything do with it.

You are a breath of fresh air. Keep it light and comedic, which is why I stop on the daily. That and the Jody HighRoller references, coupled with your stylish shirts.

I don’t remember the names of any of these shooters, as I’m sure most people don’t.

Really? I remember every single one of their names because they said them 20 times per minute on the news when the incidents happened.

if only all the media, print/tv/??? collectively agreed that they would never mention a shooters name and just refer to them as “some prick”. perhaps focus on eulogizing the shootees whose families were agreeable to that.

I like most of Billy’s video’s, usually spot on and without dragging emotion into it.

Regarding people knowing the names of the murderers, and not the victims, you have only yourselves to blame. If you’re going to watch all the MSM reports enough times to have their names memorized, then you’re part of the problem!

The problem has nothing to do with the media, and everything to do with our society. The media only plays into OUR hand, they report what the people want to hear about. If you want to stop hearing so much about the mass murders and other violent happenings in our world, it’s easy, STOP LISTENING.

I can think of nothing easier than to simply stop watching, stop reading, stop buying the bullshit. Talk to people in your community about how you feel, help add value to our society, be part of the solution.

The MSM will gladly stop reporting on violence if society doesn’t want to watch it anymore. They are in business with one goal, to make money, that’s it. The only thing that will ever make them change anything, is to disrupt their income stream.

Remember, if it BLEEDS, it LEADS, because YOU wanted it to!

That’s a little bit of a simplistic and naive world-view, Jesse.

Sure, the media directs their own message to the lemmings but the rest of us free-thinkers have choices on where to get our news. Being a part of Society, and being of value to that Society means staying abreast of current events.

The simple reason the media refers to these shootings by the a-hole shooters’ name, is that it’s an easier tag-line than something like, “The Johnson family and Lincoln School Massacre.” It’s too bad that the victims are left on the sideline, as the a-hole gets the attention because I believe it creates the scenario of fame for the next a-hole.

I study these incidents as part of my job, but I also try to learn about the victims and honor their memories as well.

There’s an old ballad called the “Streets of Laredo,” and the Johnny Cash version his slightly different lyrics than most. It’s fundamentally about a young man’s dying wishes, and the pertinent part goes:

“But please not one word of the man who had killed me.
“Don’t mention his name and his name will pass on.”

There’s a powerful amount of truth to that; the sort of subsuming of the horrors of life that time and history envelop that Sandburg covered in his poem, “Grass.” The idea that beautiful fields the world over were once scenes of slaughter, but without the auguring pain of morbid obsession- wounds heal and behaviors adapt a bit. And maybe we get one less asshole shooting people who don’t have it coming.
