There are many things that everyone wants to know about the Las Vegas shooting, but one thing that almost no one is actually talking about. One man that was there during the concert shooting called into Rush Limbaugh’s show to remind us all of that one thing, and it is a harsh reminder of what we fail at quite often while we are digging and looking for answers to make things like this horrific shooting make sense.
Many on the left have made disgusting comments about how the concert goers were all Trump supporters so the shooting was okay, or the victims deserved it because they were all white Trump supporters. This concert goer who is referred to as only Tim, wants us all to remember one very important fact.
The concert-going crowd that night was extremely diverse. People of all colors and backgrounds just wanting to have a fun night of entertainment. This stereotype that only white Trump supporters like country music is insanity.
According to Yes I’m Right :
The Las Vegas shooting is already being politicized.
Liberals have latched onto the tragedy as an excuse to bring up gun control. Their insistence has forced conservatives to go on the defense. Instead of focusing on what the country can do to heal, Washington has been forced to parry questions about the second amendment.
A survivor was so disgusted by what he was hearing that he called Rush Limbaugh.
“Hey, I just want to let you know that I was at the concert over the weekend. I was there Friday, Saturday, and on Sunday. I was on ground close to Jason Aldean near a barrier, and I saw, you know, and felt the terrifying event. I’m shaken as I talk right now,” a man identified as Tim told Limbaugh.
“But what I really wanted to say was, you know, to me it was good people that were there — black, white, Hispanic, Asian, you name it, good people enjoying a great time, great music. Not one time did I see somebody wearing a Trump hat. Not one time did I see anybody wearing a Trump shirt. We were just there having a good time —“
A few liberals have tried to be funny by suggesting that the festival-goers deserved their fate because country music is enjoyed by a lot of President Trump’s supporters. The joke is both cruel and based on false information. People of all colors and creeds were enjoying the concert.
“You know, the last two days have been kind of a blur, you know, and lack of sleep and just dealing with what I witnessed. But I did read a couple of articles,” Tim continued.
“I don’t remember exactly where, where I had heard somebody referencing country fans… as being Trump supporters, so in a way, it wasn’t that big of a deal or we deserved it… You know, I happen to be a Trump fan, but you know what? I love America first.”
The world has become a callous and uncaring place. There were 59 people who lost their lives. Not 59 white people, not 59 black people. Just 59 human beings, who had families and lives ahead of them. 59 people out for a night of fun and dancing. 59 Americans.
So while the left spews hateful rhetoric that they deserved it or the Democrats spew their ignorant gun control agendas, let’s try to remember the one important thing here. Americans were murdered in an attempt to create terror in a place that our country has always felt safe and excited to go to just to let off steam from daily life. That should never happen.
While everyone continues to throw their hate at each other, the survivors are trying to heal, to mend, and to come together to comfort each other. That is the real American spirit, and that is what we all should be doing. Left, right, white, black, it doesn’t matter and shouldn’t matter when it comes to these attacks on our people. Stop politicizing everything and reach a hand out to someone who is suffering or who may just need to talk. We are creatures born of compassion and kindness, yet we allow the ugliness of other people’s agendas to erase our true values as human beings. It has to stop.
