Today in the news the report came over that a gunman killed six people and critically wounded three at a Sikh temple during Sunday services before police shot him dead. Police stated that the attack is being treated as a domestic terrorism act.
My instant thoughts were of an article a while back where an ultra-conservative “Arizona Wing Nut” man shot and killed a Sikh man outside his Quick Shop Store in Arizona because he felt justified in killing one of those “Rag Heads” who flew a plane into the World Trade Towers. Are we dealing with this same kind of thinking again here today in Milwaukee, WI?!?!
Yes the shooter was so ignorant he thought a Sikh Indian man was the same as a Muslim and that was all he needed for his justification for killing that poor innocent man outside his own store.
I will close with one of my favorite lines from the movie “Hair Spray” made by the John Waters’ character, “Motor Mouth Mabelle,” because I think it applies well here.
“You better brace yourselves for a whole lotta ugly comin’ at you from a never-ending parade of stupid.”
