Presidential hopeful Bobby Jindal responds to the Oregon shooting by attacking the shooter's father.

Piyush "Bobby" Jindal
So apparently Piyush wrote a missive on his campaign website (Caution you may have to blow off the cobwebs to read it.) where he rants about the Oregon shooting, the decay of society, and of course President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

He starts off warning us that this is going to be a sermon, but since I am an Atheist I don;t have to sit through that crap anymore, so I will skip most of it.

(Trust me you are not missing much, as he pends most of the first part throwing spitballs at the President.)

However then Piyush comes the important part which he labels "The Brew of Decay." (Ooh spooky!)

And you can tell it's important because he puts bullet points next to each of them.

So I will include them all, cause I think I kind of have to.

Here they are:
  • We glorify sick and senseless acts of violence in virtually every element of our pop culture, and we have been doing that for at least a generation. (Yes because earlier generations certainly never spent all of their time watching war movies and detective and cowboy shows on TV or anything.)
  • Our movies and TV shows feature a continuous stream of grotesque killing of every kind imaginable. And this is true of virtually every genre, from horror to drama to comedy. (Hey!
  • We celebrate and document every kind of deviant behavior and we give out awards to producers who can push the envelope as far as possible. Rape, torture, murder, mass murder, all are cinematic achievements.  (Does he mean like "The Godfather," Apocalypse Now," and Clint Eastwood movies?)
  • Our music does the same thing, we promote evil, we promote the degradation of women, we flaunt the laws of God and common decency and we promote it all and we flood our young people with it. (Okay he's got a point there.)
  • We have generations of young boys who were raised on video games where they compete with other young boys around the country and the world to see who can kill the most humans. We make it so fun, so realistic, so sensational. (Actually studies show that violent video games do NOT make kids more violent.)
  • We devalue human life, we have no regard for the sanctity of human life in any regard, from the unborn, to the old, and to every single person in between, we devalue it and act as if we have almost no regard for humanity. (Does he mean like starting wars based on false information and then sending our young people to die and murder for a lie? I'm kidding, he is talking about abortion of course, which as we know is the driving force behind most school shootings. Right?)
  • Our families are a complete mess, and we have raised tens of millions of young boys who will never become real men because they have no values whatsoever, they have no truth in their lives, and they have no regard for common decency. (What young boys is he hanging out with?)
  • Oh, we make sure that we stop them from bullying at school, but we are completely fine with them watching people get murdered and raped on the internet after school, and we are willing to let them go to the basement and join a fantasy world where they pretend they are killing people for 2 hours after school. (So to be clear, bullying an actual live person at school is fine, but shooting at groups of pixels on a screen or playing D&D in your basement leads to a murderous rampage? Perhaps Piyush should read some of the reports about what motivated some of these school shooters.)
  • And who is it that generally commits these evil acts of mass murder that are becoming routine? It’s almost always young men who have either no father figure in their lives, or a broken relationship with their father. Is this just a coincidence? Of course not. (Oh he wouldn't go there, would he?)
  • Now, let’s get really politically incorrect here and talk specifically about this horror in Oregon. This killer’s father is now lecturing us on the need for gun control and he says he has no idea how or where his son got the guns.
  • Of course he doesn’t know. You know why he doesn’t know? Because he is not, and has never been in his son’s life. He’s a complete failure as a father, he should be embarrassed to even show his face in public. He’s the problem here. (Yep, he would.)
  • He brags that he has never held a gun in his life and that he had no idea that his son had any guns. Why didn’t he know? Because he failed to raise his son. He should be ashamed of himself, and he owes us all an apology. (Holy shitballs! What kind of POS attacks a grieving father like this? This man did not provide those guns for the massacre, his mother did.)
  • When he was asked what his relationship was with his son, he said he hadn’t seen him in a while because he lived with his mother. Case Closed.
 So I think this is where Piyush drops the mic and walks off stage.

Which I hope is somewhat less awkward than when he walks up to a podium.

You know I am all for fathers being involved in their children's lives. I actually hope that both parents are equally committed to raising and supporting their kids.

However to make a blanket statement like the reason behind gun violence is absentee fathers is so incredibly ignorant that it does not warrant an actual response.

And attacking a father, who is grieving the loss of his son, for speaking out as is his Constitutional right, well that is beneath contempt.

Simply put the obvious reason for this shooting and ALL of the others is easy access to guns. As Piyush Jindal might say, case closed!

I would suggest that this might be why Jindal is currently polling at a whopping one percent, but then again this is the GOP race and this kind of ignorance probably plays well with them.

In the interest of full disclosure I should mention that I was raised by a single mother. Not once did it even occur to me to shoot up a school.

    Thank you for putting up his real name. "nikki" haley has also changed her name to sound more merican.

      Nimratha, loosly translated, is the female form of Nimrod. Thank me later.

    My teacher had me bring my mother to school to tell her "your daughter couldn't possibly be worse" (and it was only January).

    This was in the 50s and guns for hunting were a common sight in my small town. Somehow, it never occurred to me to go shoot people.

    Does this twerp actually believe this sick shit, or is he getting paid in chicken feed to deflect criticism from the NRA? Either way, THIS is why I am not a conservative. THIS is why I'm no longer a christian.

    I think tripp is the one kid ge referred to who will never grow up to be a real man. As well as trig. Ive got no use for either one.

  5. Anonymous5:20 PM

    Yes, like passing open carry laws, celebrating open carry parades, and glorifying guns to the point where they become a representation of manhood and toughness instead of deadly weapons that rob families of loved ones and people of their lives. That's what Jindal does. The rest of us just have to live in that sick culture.


  6. Anonymous5:44 PM

    Uhm what was the name of the one in Chatanooga - didn't his dad buy him the gun as a birthday gift?

    And Dylan Klebold (from a NY Times s article, post Columbine: The Klebolds describe the day of the shootings as a natural disaster, as a ''hurricane'' or a ''rain of fire.'' They say they had no intimations of Dylan's mental state. Tom, who works from home and saw his son every day, had spent part of the previous week with Dylan scoping out dorm rooms for college the next year.

    Some one please type this up to send to Piyush .

      Mom hasn't been seen in public since this happened, and a bigger nut than he was. Living here, I can tell you that Oregon has some strange custody laws and this is soooo not the dad's fault.

      I raised 3 kids on my own.. While they raised hell drinking and drugging they NEVER had a gun. None of them would have thought of shooting up a school, theatre or anywhere else. If one of them had collected the arsenal that Oregon guy did, I would have sought mental help for him. Who can afford that many guns? Who needs that many guns, even for self defense?

  9. Anonymous6:12 PM

    Jindal, you are pure scum

    Saying such vile things about the father, blaming him for this massacre. It's revolting. And it's only because of his stance on gun control

    If the father was one of the idiots saying the same rehearsed line "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" then Jindal would be calling this father a salt of the earth patriotic American

    And for the record, I grew up without a father as well. And the biggest brush with the law I've ever had was a ticket for running a stop sign

    And yes, thank you for referring to him as Piyush "Bobby" Jindal. Because these are the same people who insisted on making sure everyone knew our president was named Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

    Slightly off topic. This is just me being a troll, but another thing I like to do is to call Michelle Malkin by her maiden name Michelle Maglalang-Malkin. Oh that pisses off her and her mindless little drones. I can't tell you how many times I've had said to me "You racist!!" But then I always ask the question: How is this different than using Obama's middle name? And the only sound I hear after that is crickets chirping

    So....young Tripp will grow up to be a mass murderer? Is that really what Governor Jindal is saying?

    1. Anonymous7:10 PM

      Tripp is going to be hell on wheels.
      Mark my words.

      I think he already is. Maybe the teachers requested Bristles take him on vacation!!

    3. Anonymous5:49 AM

      Just wait until the other kids start taunting Tripp about his manicures and pedicures!! I would not want to be a parent of any kid in his school. Also, too his many 1/2 brothers and sisters. His perpetually pregnant mother. So much material has been created by the PayMes for these kids to have to live with. When the money runs out they will have to deal with reality.

  11. Just the kind of POS that conflates "flout" with "flaunt." Or maybe that was a Freudian slip vis a vis "the laws of 'God'."

      "Rat-faced MoFo"

  13. Anonymous6:52 PM

    In addition to all the comments above, the Oregon shooter was 26 years old. How many parents of a child in his mid-20s know what he or she is doing from day to day?

    We don't know what kind of father the man was until two years ago, when the mother and son moved from California to Oregon. This man was suddenly thrust into the spotlight, and said what he felt and believed.

    Perhaps one of the causes of his divorce was the mother's love of guns, which seems to have verged on the pathological.
    Who's to say? And who's to say what elements of the son's life added up to cause his hatred and anger?

    Jindal, like the rest of them, is shameless. Stuff happens.
    Carson's going to go to the next mass shooting tragedy; he doesn't have time for this one, and he's sure there will be another.

    This was not what the Founders meant when they wrote the Second Amendment: not "everyone arm himself and shoot at each other in public places and private homes." They wanted a civilian militia, which we have with the National Guard. That's all. They would abolish the Second Amendment now, as it's been perverted, and make their wishes known to all the gun nuts who have made our country hostage to their immature and violent craziness.

  14. Anonymous7:12 PM

    He has disproven his own point regarding popular culture. In order to "know" what kind of content kids are exposed to he has to have seen, heard and experienced it all first hand. otherwise he's just using hearsay as evidence for his argument. So either he's too lazy to do his homework, or he's about to go on a murderous rampage.

  15. Anonymous7:38 PM

    Do other countries not have the same video games, music, etc? Yet only american boys shoot up schools. Hmmmm

  16. Anonymous7:45 PM

    The "pro-life" people and comic book collectors are exactly alike. As long as it's in the original wrapper, it has value. Once it's out of the wrapper, the product loses its value.

      Great analogy.

    That pic of Jindal looks like he farted

  18. Anonymous9:23 PM

    I also disagree that an absentee parent is to blame for these shootings. That is an absurd generalization. Shame on Jindal for laying false guilt on the father of the Oregon shooter who clearly is opposed to guns.

    I will disagree about violence experienced with video games though. My young grandsons who have been exposed and playing them shock the rest of the family by their enthusiastic talk of cutting off heads, thrusting play swords into visitors crotches blurring the lines of game playing and acceptable behavior. I do hold the parents accountable for allowing this gun, sword and knife to maim people as if it is manly or real boy (versus homo) evidence. It is disturbing to hear kids six and eight get joy from even cutting a penis off.

    Just saying this grandmother would like to remove the games and weapons then introduce them to who Ghandi was!

  22. Anonymous8:25 AM

    Whre did Jindal get the idea this was some absent father. He had joint custody, and it was only a couple years ago the mother and son moved to Oregon. Before that, everyone lived in California (the mother having moved away, not the father) Lucy

    This jackass knows nothing. One good parent is all any child needs. There are plenty of single parent families where the child excels. Bill Clinton and President Obama to name two.
