When Will We Have the Guts to Link
Fatherlessness to School Shootings?

PJ Media, by Susan Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/18/2018 4:40:09 AM

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.

When will we have the brains to realize that giving psychotropic drugs to children will addle their brains forever. Virtually everyone one of the school killers are on psychotropic drugs.

It´s almost impossibly for a good father to raise a psychopathic kid. Trying to do so would ruin most marriages. Psychopathic kids grow up to be psychopathic men, who leave a trail of broken relationships, failed employment, frequent entanglements with the law, and violence.

About 1% of all kids are psychopaths. No treatment is effective. we much protect ourselves from their anti-social behavior accurately diagnosing them, tracking them, and by preventing them from handling weapons.

We live in a time where free sex and hook ups are the norm. The Kardashians are the role models for our youth. Our entertainment is full of violence and sex and we allow our children to watch and wonder. Men are no longer needed according to the new culture. They are so wrong and we are all paying the price.

Indeed, half the children in America are raised without fathers mostly due to divorce and children born to unmarried women. Then they are "raised" while glued to their ipads and video games that advocate death and destruction. Then you have the TV sitcoms and commercial ads that portray the husband as the doofus. Then you have the family lifestyle here so high-strung and stressful, there is no quality time by single-parent or two-parent families to properly nurture their children. Then we have the dims, aka as the party of hate and its msm advocating chaos and death to a president.

Then every time there is a mass shooting, the pubbies, dims, and msm slug it out to see who can control what we think the best.

No wonder America is in a mental health crisis. Beautiful innocent children were robbed of their entire lives because of a lack of adult responsibility. Just calling it like I see it. Do we have the guts to clean up our act? Time will tell.

Not until we get over the notion that discipline harms children and hard work is beneath them. It doesn´t always take a birth father to raise a well-balanced child but somebody has to fulfill the role.

The Left, as usual, doesn´t want to let this crisis go to waste, and are using it in another attempt to rip away the 2nd Amendment. The truth is that there are multiple factors contributing to the moral rot in this country, almost all of them attributable to policies championed by the Left. Until we as a country find the fortitude to face this truth, nothing is going to change. But as I frequently post here, being a libtard means never having to admit you´re wrong or having to say you´re sorry, so don´t count on this being solved any time soon.

Fatherlessness certainly could be a factor. But I really don´t know what we can do about forcing couples to stay together. How about other contributing factors that we CAN do something about? How about taking a good hard look at the entertainment industry?
Hollywood screams for gun control while glorifying violence for profit. Movies, songs, TV shows, and video games ALL lack a moral point of view and they fail to show the true cost of violence. Our children live in a world of violent films, sexually explicit lyrics and video games filled with murder and mayhem---while they aren´t allowed to ride their bikes or put on skates without being helmeted.
Somebody should start a #StopItHollywood movement and demand that studio executives STOP making products that contain graphic violence. It´s an approach that hasn´t as yet been tried; what harm could there be in trying?
Post-Weinstein, Hollywood has shown that they are not afraid to speak up. Perhaps the timing is right for a little more self-examination?
I realize I could be doing some pie-in-the-sky thinking. But really, I never thought I´d see the day when Hollywood turned against sexual predators in their midst. So there´s always hope.

We will pay a woman for every illegitimate child she has - unless there´s a father involved.

Welfare - for the most part - is a fatherless trap.

This massacre was the result of schizophrenia - - a disease embedded in human genetics.

It has nothing to do with society, culture, or being fatherless. Poster #2 is mostly on track - - but he uses "psychotic" when the proper term is "schizophrenic."

Schizophrenia can be treated. People with the disease can lead near-normal, productive lives. The disease has very little effect on intelligence - - so significant recovery is very likely with treatment.

Yes - - it helps to have a loving father. But that´s true for mentally healthy people as well as for the mentally ill.

Please use this tragedy to learn more about schizophrenia. You will be enlightened - - and your opinions will be much better informed.

Wrong again!! The writer doesn´t dig deep enough. It´s not fatherlessness; it´s GODLESSNESS!

And I´m NOT talking about having more morals or ethics. That satiates no one, nor does it keep people from evil (ask the apostle Paul)!

Fatherlessness is third only to (1) mind altering drugs (being pumped into our young boys to keep them docile for teachers) and (2) desensitization of violence (an entire generation of children being subjected to near constant stimulation through gory movies and violent games). On their desensitization of violence, kids used to play "army" or "cowboys and indians", but only for short periods and never with the total immersion of senses kids get today through hours upon hours of killing they do in video games.

Argue against it all you want, but today´s generation really has been desensitized to violence. Add that to the various psychosis on the warning labels of the "stabilization" drugs given to kids by the handful and the absence of father figures and what do you get? Shooters like those found in Sandy Hook and Parkland. Even with fathers in the house, the other two factors become overwhelming to a growing number of kids today.

If you want to give a father to the fatherless, and restore sanity -- the common sense answer is to put Bible reading and prayer back in homeroom. Our fifth column is the obstacle.

King Nebuchadnezzar ate grass like a cow until he acknowledged his need for repentance.
Medical doctors find no ADD or ADHD in Mennonite communities.

#13 is correct, there is a dirth of godlessness in America and the world... the left has no use for God.

I sent an email out to friends last week with this list.My point was to make it clear that GUNS are not the problem, social mores are:

Mom and a dad at the dinner table
cultural degradation
opioid abuse
availability of marijuana and other hard drugs
ADHD drug abuse
Trannies in any bathroom they want
No Pledge of Allegiance in school
No 4th of July celebrations
trophies for everyone
"safe spaces" on campus

Just for fun the other day I counted the number of people killed by the character John Wick (Keanu Reeves) in the first John Wick film.
He killed 86 people in less than 90 minutes, most being shot in the head. All because they killed his dog. I am not sure about Reeves´ stance on guns, but I would bet that he is very anti-gun, as well as most of the other people involved in the making of that film. I don´t have time to count the number of people shot by Reeves in the Matrix trilogy.

It isn´t just lack of a male in the household, plenty of baby daddies livin´ rent free on the taxpayer´s dime. It is the lack of a Father and Mother in the household.

I also believe that more kids these days have some genetic issues from their parents past and present drug and alcohol use.

#6 is right in portraying TV sitcoms and commercials composed by liberals as fraudulently portraying fathers as being doofuses.

But those TV simcoms and commercials have now gone further by using race as a basis to portray White characters as being doofuses as they fraudulently portray leftist favored minority group characters and their cultures as being progressive and all knowing.

If you arrived in the USA from Mars yesterday and started watching those TV sitcoms and commercials you would think that especially the Black population group in the USA was the dominant, smart as a whip, and majority population in the country these days, when that population is really a distinct minority group numbering only about 12.5% of the entire US population, much of which is uneducated, and that contains a very violent feral trait that leftists won’t talk about, that is dangerous to both Black and White people alike, as they are told by leftists and go about believing that they are victims of the greater White culture in the country.

When rational explanations are myriad and inconclusive, others should be considered.

Christianity has been declining in our nation. In many places, an active hostility has emerged that even openly dismisses prayer as praise and entreaty to a loving God. Where the spirit of God is unwelcome a vacuum is created and spiritual warfare results. A troubled and vacant spirit desires fulfillment, and God´s enemy is happy to fill that role.

Look at the eyes of Cruz.

Rolemodellessness, other than wreaking havoc on my typing fingers, is a huge disadvantage from every kid´s get-go. Having nothing or no one decent to look up to is way more than only likely going to wind up the reason every kid is headed for trouble or at least a heaping helping of wrong decisions. Unfortunately maturity doesn´t make its debut overnight. Customarily it´s a long, drawn out process. Who better than your father or mother to tell you about the birds and bees? And even more important, which fork to use at the dinner table? Admittedly, in some families those two facts of life might best be rearranged. Whatever, a child deprived of a common sense source is probably a child destined for trouble. Whether they know it or not, kids are needy. Don´t let that happen! Round up the usual suspects. Teachers, ministers, aunts, uncles, cousins, other family members who care, others who care as well. Cherish them all!

In his book "Faith of the Fatherless" Paul C. Vitz finds deep roots between fatherlessness and athiesm. The breakdown of family life has serious consequences that are not being acknowledged. There is no substitute for the plan of God. Totalitarian govt seeks to weaken the family leaving the individual alone before the all powerful state. Those interested in maintaining centralized control of a population see this as a good thing but it is very damaging.

Sociopaths are born, not made, although I´ll stipulate that sociopathic behavior can be encouraged by environment. There are plenty of male orphans who are not sociopaths.
We should spend our resources on identifying sociopaths and removing them from society, not on fruitless quests for ideal family circumstances, and not on hopeless "treatments" or "care" or "cures", none of which will ever convert a sociopath into a non-sociopath.

What 10 said in spades. LBJ´s war on poverty created a culture of slothfullness. We´re paying the price today. Jessie Lee Peterson, amazing Christian black pastor and brilliant thinker states the problem with the black community today is due to a fatherless family, no education, and no faith in the creator. That recipe makes for a lot of anger and resentment.

In the Daily Mail the other day, probably fake news, but they reported that Cruz, and his brother, may have been brought from Russia to Florida when they were babies, where they were adopted by an older American couple. The article speculated that a numbers of the Russian babies brought to the USA to be adopted during those years were later found to have all sorts of medical and mental situations that were not disclosed until after they were adopted in the USA. Who knows?

Certainly not defending absent fathers but you should expect it when all of these women have sex with a different guy every night. How about some responsibility put on them? All of these children with no father figures could be reduced by offering free sterilization for these women. Their decision, sterilization or absolutely not one penny for any of her kids. They wouldn´t give up all the free stuff, believe me, they would be lined up for the surgery.

In one of their brave bursts of rage at the police state they live in, Democrats are now up in arms about voter suppression. They compare it to the days before the Civil Rights Acts and the civil rights movement. Nonwhites in the South were kept from the ballot by heavy poll taxes, tests laden with arcane bits of knowledge, or the threat or reality of actual violence. Those were cases of people who were longing to vote, but deprived of the franchise by malice aforethought. Today, things are about as different as you can imagine. Today, the supposed problem

More Americans are satisfied with the country’s direction than at any point during the Obama presidency, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. The survey found that 38 percent of the population is content with the way things are going — the highest rate since 39 percent of the country reported they were satisfied in September of 2005. The satisfaction rate, which Gallup began tracking in 1979, is also back in line with the historical average of 37 percent. And it’s the first time since 2005 that Gallup has recorded consecutive months with satisfaction above 35 percent. Last month, 37

Decades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world´s highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind. Fluorescent tents, discarded climbing equipment, empty gas canisters and even human excrement litter the well-trodden route to the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak. "It is disgusting, an eyesore," Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. "The mountain is carrying tonnes of waste."

It was an extraordinary sight—as the queen and Meghan Markle sat on chairs watching a performance by a group of schoolchildren on Thursday, Meghan leant over and whispered something in her grandmother-in-law’s ear, and the monarch chuckled. Her Majesty then made a canoeing action, in friendly imitation of the kids’ performance, and laughed again. The queen has a fairly simple policy on public emotion which is to not show it, ever, and this is not because she is some unthinking adherent to the principle of the stiff upper lip, but just because it makes life simpler, and avoids people being upset

Liza Minnelli is lucky no one bought her Andy Warhol collection two years ago — she’ll end up much richer by selling off the paintings one by one.

It was one of three portraits of Judy in Liza’s collection, which also includes four portraits of herself and three of her father Hollywood director Vincente Minnelli. I reported two years ago that Liza was asking $40 million for the entire collection, trying

And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border — a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties. Did you get that? It actually received a majority backing. This Haley amendment

(Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied both the Old and New Testament, and what is being

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of
