On Thursday night, after the shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, in the middle of the night on Wednesday in which at least 12 people were killed, CNN’s Chris Cuomo offered his perspective on the shooting and decided to mock those who offered thoughts and prayers, stating, “You mock those who lost loved ones.”
Cuomo then said condescendingly, “’First, I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers.’ Because that’s what you do when you offer, (sneers) thoughts and prayers. You mock those who lost loved ones because if you gave it any thought at all you would never walk away from any of these without figuring out a better way to deal with them. And prayer, you think leaving it to God is the answer? We pray for strength; we pray for wisdom; for resolve, but we clearly don’t want to act on any of those here so what are you praying for.”
Cuomo then offered a horrific scenario in which children of influential people were slaughtered:
What would it take? How about a stadium full of children of the most influential people in our society all holding puppies? What if they were all shot and killed, would we act? “Oh, don’t be ridiculous to suggest something like —” Is it? is it ridiculous? More ridiculous than doing nothing time after time? Listening to these people pouring out their pain, crying along with them, saying you care?
The utter insanity starts at the 2:40 mark …
