Loving the "New Civility" - Reno Edition

Well, that didn’t take very long, did it?

A collection of some of the thoughts of the “reality-based” community over at HuffPo, following the tragedy in Reno:

The P-51 Mustang is a WEAPON OF WAR. IT HAS ONLY ONE PURPOSE. IT KILLS. THAT’S ALL IT DOES. STOP THIS MADNESS. BAN THESE TERRIBLE MACHINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am sure many of the people in the area that was hit will turn out to be casino guests. Big money must have had a reason to thin the herd.

I say we kill the Air Shows. It is a waste of fuel and a dim and dangerous spectacle. The air show is not just a display of the vulgarity of speed, it is a pornographic illustration of the grim utility of modern weapons of war

There are other human values besides greed. They really need to simply cancel the races. No way should they go on after this.

airshows bad for the environment and deadly to people.

I yearn for the good old horse and buggy days.

This is a horrible incident & worthy of lawsuits against the fairgrounds, the show organizers, the city of Reno & the state of Nevada in the coming months by the victims (understandable), the families of the dead (again, understandable) & many others in attendance who were irreparably psycologically effected.

As I’ve said, there really is no debate to be had with people like this. To their way of thinking, the sooner their perceived intellectual inferiors are eradicated, the better.
