Yes, exactly. If someone like say Sarah Silverman joked about nuking say Mississippi or Florida I doubt anyone here would care.
So if you find yourself genuinely outraged by a a shit joke, you have to ask yourself, is it dark humor you don’t like (that’s more than fair, lots of people don’t), or was it just my sacred cow that got targeted this time? Or in this case, is it who told the joke what one doesn’t like?
Don’t try to rationalize how one could possibly be ok because either the damage in your hypothetical would some how be less than in this one. Or that you are a nobody and so what you say doesn’t matter. (This guy is a nobody too, never heard of him.)
For the record I didn’t find either comment very funny, but at the same time neither were really outrageous, because I know what it is at his heart.
I think all of us are guilty at wishing harm on a group of people or place from time to time. coughFloridacough We probably shouldn’t. We certainly shouldn’t act like it is something only some monster would do. At least not with out some introspection.
Given their size, they are all open carry.
