The YouTube Shooter

April 4, 2018

Yesterday, in a bizarre and tragic incident at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California, a shooter injured three people before committing suicide. And while what happened was strange and unpredictable, the reaction was as predictable as a show we’ve seen in reruns a hundred times.

President Trump, not yet having any details of what happened, simply tweeted that our thoughts and prayers were with the victims. Liberals immediately rushed to judgement and didn’t merely say that prayers were not enough but denigrated the entire concept and politicized the tragedy – no longer even bothering to try to finesse their exploitation of a tragedy but openly using the actual words, “politicize it.”

One prominent celebrity tweeter, using predictably profane language, predictably blamed the NRA and predictably called that group a “terrorist organization” (predictably, the shooter was not an NRA member.) He added that it didn’t matter who the shooter was, or that the shooter wasn’t an NRA member, it’s still their fault and we need to repeal the Second Amendment. So we can add “logic” to the list of fatalities, as well. (Warning: some pretty foul language at this link.)

As more details emerged, we learned that, in fact, the shooter was not an NRA member, and certainly not the cliché image of a white, male, Southern, rightwing “gun nut.” The shooter was Nasim Aghdam, a young woman of Middle Eastern extraction who wore a head scarf and had made a number of odd YouTube videos promoting her liberal passions, which included animal rights activism, veganism and environmentalism. Her father had reported her missing and warned she might be going to YouTube’s HQ because she “hated” the company after its recent policy changes demonetized her videos and severely lowered her web traffic.

Now, back to the predictable parts of the story: Police found and questioned her, decided everything was “under control,” and let her go. Hours later, she was dead from a self-inflicted wound after police showed up with guns. Her father said he had no idea she had a gun or where she got it. But somehow, she obtained it in a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the US.

Finally, one post-script to this sad story that’s the most predictable part of all: while the people getting the most media coverage were, of course, those blaming the NRA and demanding that all law-abiding people who had nothing to do with it be disarmed, one man who was at YouTube when the bullets actually started flying had this to say:

“I didn't have a gun on me, but I wish I did.” That's the thought people predictably have when it's too late to do any good.

I now offer two predictions of my own: YouTube will be flooded with videos demanding gun confiscation and repeal of the Second Amendment…and YouTube’s executives will hire more armed guards to protect themselves.

    Once again the liberal left attacks our second amendment. patriots need to understand that our battle is not against flesh and bone but the evil in high paces. One needs to know that Satan is going crazy with attacks because those that are God's are doing His will. Our President was selected by God, Satan and his demons are ever attacking those that are God's and the very idea of doing what God wants is coming under extreme attacks.

    GOV. HUCKABEE I HAVE BEEN HEARING LATELY THAT MANY OF THE SHOOTER WHO KILL OTHERS COMMIT SUICIDE.
    I WISH THEY WOULDN'T BE COWARDS AND PAY THE PRICE FOR THE MURDERS THEY CAUSE.

    These shooters always leave so many clues for people to report to the authorities and it seems nothing happens until they complete their threat! We need more communication and listening, as well as more mental health support. My husband and I support armed guards and dogs and whatever teachers want to be armed in the schools. We also are not sure about the Ak14 or whatever they are called. It seems we don't need guns that can spit out bullets a hundred times a minute except for the military. Someone mentioned that maybe a mental health class should be included in every student's roster. It could include what to look for and how to deal with mental health.
