The pictures coming out of Dayton and El Paso this weekend continue to be hard to watch.
I keep reading that you can become immune to it. About how it can be the new normal.
Not yet. Not for me.
Officials don’t know, or aren’t saying, what made the Dayton killer engage in mass murder.
There is no question about what propelled the killings in El Paso. In spite of the New York Times trying to put lipstick on that immigrant hating racist president, the killer was part of Trump’s MAGA militia.
As an aside: Did the Democratic Socialists of America really vote this weekend not to endorse any candidate to defeat Trump if Bernie is not the Democratic nominee?
The President of the National Education Association, Lily Eskelsen Garcia tweeted her prayers and thoughts.
But when at the last two Illinois Education Association and the National Education Association conventions, New Business Items were placed before the delegates to refuse to endorse those politicians who opposed gun control legislation, taking money from the National Rifle Association, the proposals received no support from the union leadership and items were defeated.
Here in Illinois, Springfield Republican Congressman Rodney Davis continues to be an IEA favorite in spite of a 95% Trump voting record and NRA endorsements.
