In the aftermath of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., the American people are mad.
Mad at the FBI, which received a detailed and specific warning of the shooting but never followed up. Mad at the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, which visited the attacker’s home 23 times before the shooting and waited outside for several minutes before running into the high school. And, of course, they’re mad at the killer.
Progressive activists and many in the news media have rather different priorities. Their ire is focused squarely on a group that wasn’t tipped off, wasn’t a first responder, and had no affiliation with the attacker. Namely, the National Rifle Association.
I liked a funny Tide Pod meme my Facebook friend shared from Instagram and posted it on Twitter. It got a lot of retweets.
But a woman from Kentucky emailed that she created it and I should have given her credit. By the time I saw her email, Tide Pods were old newsbecause everyone moved on to funny YouTube videos about Lady Doritos.
If you didn’t understand the previous sentence, I envy you.
