We've been mulling over the "goth" aspects of the Denver
shootings all day, and it's been obvious to us from the
beginning that the shooters were not goths but instead were
some kind of psychotic neo-NAZI rejects. It's amazing how
CNN/CBS/ABC/NBC/XXX wont do even RUDIMENTARY investigative
journalism anymore, or even basic fact checking, and how
they only focus on a few sensational details of a story...
in this case erroneous details.
The first tipoff that the goth angle was wrong is that even the earliest
reports about what was happening inside the school building included the fact
that the "Trench Coat Mafia" targeted minority students (as well as 'jocks').
The black trench coats should have been a tip off too. Black trench coats were
an intricate part of Hitler's SS uniforms. The SS were Hitler's secret police.
April 20, the day this all happened, is also Hitler's birthday. So that's a
lot of fucking Hitler evidence, don't you think? How much evidence is there
that these people were goths? Somebody said they listened to Marilyn Manson?
Big friggen deal--Charles Manson's followers smeared the Beatles' lyrics on the
walls of their victims. Did that make them mods or hippies? No, just a bunch
of fucked up psychos.
Maybe part of the confusion stems from the fact that most people have no idea
what the goth subculture is, or even that it exists--ESPECIALLY the mainstream
media. This evil incident has introduced goths to the majority of Americans...
something that even Jenny Jones couldn't do, despite several goth makeover
shows. And what an introduction it is. A complete misrepresentation; maybe
even undeserved. I will be the first to tell you that goths are VERY bad
people, but NOT THAT BAD. They are bad in a different, much less severe way.
Probably no worse than you or I, for that matter...
Pigdog has a reporter ON SCENE in the Denver area. However, he, and we, have
only limited resources. While we will do the best that we can to report what
we can, it will take a heavy duty news organ to address some of the real
aspects of this story... that means resources, big drinks, and expense
accounts. Somebody should DO something (HINT: somebody sponsor us or at least
buy us more beer).
Here are just a couple of questions...
What is causing this shooting rampage shit? Hasn't anyone else noticed that
this suicide/shooting stuff has moved from hi-tech companies to post offices to
high schools? Weren't there a whole bunch of high school shooting like this
on a smaller scale, last year? What next, Safeway? You'll be in line at
Safeway, and then a cashier will pull out an assault rifle and kill everyone in
line because the produce girl wont go out with him? Are aliens controlling us?
What about MK-Ultra? It's weird.
How the hell did these trenchcoat kids in Denver have so much ammunition and
explosives? Apparently they had tons of pipe bombs, perhaps hand-grenades, and
enough rounds to shoot a whole bunch of students and battle police for hours.
Where the hell did they get the money for that stuff? Guns and explosives are
almost as expensive as computer shit. Why didn't anyone notice that these
kids were stockpiling and manufacturing a means of war?
There are TONS of questions here... But it will take more than scapegoating
and sweeping things under the carpet to get at them.
