In a chilling final post on social media, the former Marine who massacred 12 people and injured many more in a bar in Thousand Oaks, California, ranted about the way people offer “hopes and prayers” in the wake of a mass killing.
"It's too bad I won't get to see all the illogical and pathetic reasons people will put in my mouth as to why I did it. Fact is I had no reason to do it and I just thought... f***it, life is boring so why not?
"I hope people call me insane (two laughing emojis) wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah... I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers' ... or 'keep you in my thoughts' ... every time ... and wonder why these keep happening...(two smiley face emojis)," he wrote shortly before Wednesday’s attack.
On Thursday, CNN's Chris Cuomo mocked those who offer “thoughts and prayers,” stating, “The only consensus there is, is in a canard and here it is: First, ‘I would like to offer my thoughts and prayers,’ because that’s what you do when you offer ‘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.”
MSNBC's Chris Matthews took the message a step further and said sending thoughts and prayers “should be outlawed.”
Friday on the radio program, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly and Stu Burguiere noted how the leftist who are mocking "thoughts and prayers" are unknowingly expressing and endorsing the killer's "manifesto."
"Every one of these leftists is going on television and reading his manifesto, just rewording it, and giving it their own endorsement over and over and over again -- all over the media," Stu said.
"Thank you Chris Cuomo and Chris Matthews for making the killer's manifesto, your own," said Glenn.
