Liberal activist filmmaker and nutjob Michael Moore declared Friday that being American is the root cause of mass shootings in this country, reports CNS News.
Moore took to Twitter to share an article that says, “80 percent of mass shooters showed no interest in video games…” to which Moore even took it a step further and said that the problem isn’t with violent video games, but with America as a whole.
“Sorry, fellow Americans, it’s not mental illness & it’s not the video games. It’s just simply us,” Moore said. “Every other country has mental illness & video games. 80 percent of mass shooters in US showed no interest in video games, researcher says.”
As his proof, Moore tweeted a link to a CBS News story quoting a psychologist claiming a statistic that only one in five mass shooters have an interest in video games – with no additional detail or documentation:
“But psychologist Patrick Markey’s research shows 80 percent of mass shooters did not show an interest in violent video games.
“It seems like something that should make us safer so it’s a totally understandable reaction,” Markey said. “The problem is just the science, the data, does not back up that they actually have an effect.”
The only other comment by Markey in the article is a claim that crime actually drops when a new video game comes out:
“In fact, Markey said his work shows when a new violent game is released, crime actually drops.”
Instead of looking at any other facts or just common sense, Moore decides to blame all of America for the problems we are facing with mass shootings and gun violence with younger people.
Moore has once again demonized all of the honest and legal gun-carrying citizens of this great country, that Moore is only so lucky to live under, who understand that under the constitution have the right to own a gun if they desire too.
Liberal fanatics like Moore might actually be more of a contributing factor to gun violence, what with all of his divisive rhetoric and lies, than all of America as he claims.
