    Only in America is the solution to, too many guns…more guns. Somehow the lunacy has to stop and hopefully something may come of the movement which has begun as a result of the efforts of the student survivors of the latest carnage. The adults have failed miserably, its time to give the kids a chance.

            And the mutual jackoff continues. But hey, I remember when you once said that Trump was a means to an end for your anti-globalist viewpoint. But now we all know you for what you really have in your heart.

            That. And there was this one time I was in Chad. Abeche. And I saw an 11 year old boy get his skull cracked open with the butt end of an AK47 and then – to shut him up – his brains blown out by a local militia guy. It was an effort to provoke a response right outside a UN peace keeping base of operation. So you’ll never know true depths of disgust I feel about firearms and their place in any society.

            What’s the worst thing you ever observed Bodge?

            And you were there? Actually there? Man. Because I was in Chad, Rwanda – albeit years later – CAR most recently, DRC, Liberia and Cameroon during Ebola, and god knows where else.

            DeKloot, then you must know things are not always what they seem to be or reported to be. Said with respect.

            The fact that Bodger is allowed to post and comment on this kind of BS casts the credibility of this website into major doubt.

            You’ll find your safe space on Joe.ie or any other main stream outlet that lies to you on a daily basis

            Are Bodger and jusayinlike suggesting that people who are disgusted at them declaring every gun massacre in the US fake and attacking the survivors and the bereaved are faking it? Do they think we know those attacks are faked and everyone involved is an actor and we’re just going along with it? I would very much like to know if this is Bodger’s position about commenters who find this disgusting. Is he saying we are knowingly complicit in this alleged fakery?

      I have to admit, and I’m not too proud to do so, that I was wrong last week when I said you or people like you would soon be attacking the bereaved families of victims of the shooting. You’re actually attacking the survivors of the shootings. Congratulations. You’ve gone from swallowing asinine alt-right conspiracies to proudly standing up for the feckin NRA. That includes you, Bodger. Now, give us a short cryptic code-word response or some such thing.

          The usual ‘if I say they’re not real they’re not real and you’re supposed to believe me when I say they’re not real because i said they’re not real and that means I don’t have to empathy.’

            He’s right though – you are an even bigger gobspoo than he is himself. He’s a transparent gobspoo whereas you are a flim-flam, song and dance man

          2. Nigel

            Well I can’t read you mind, so whatever you have to say will have to struggle through the windmills of your own brain.

    2. realPolithicks

      Lol, I actually feel sorry for people like you and Bodger. You’ve bought the BS that these morons are selling hook, line and sinker and frankly it’s pathetic.

    1. anyone

      You know kierannyc had a very valid point about broadsheet allowing the likes of the conspiracy nonsense floated by the bodgers and the jusayinlikes of the world, beyond parody for a so-called ‘serious’ news site

      However let’s not forget it’s Clampers who is really at fault here, he started the weekend on Thursday!

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        He did, though I didn’t necessarily agree at the time. I may have rethink that.

        And this place does become… stagnant at the weekends. I usually put it down to a lack of content, so we’re left bickering over the usual nonsense/watching clamps and nige lobbing wordy insults in lieu of anything else.

      2. jusayinlike

        @ anyone

        When kieran left your avatar was Pat Kenny’s wife, why were you banned from the site under that avatar?

    Are you saying that 17 children shot dead by a gunman Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida did not happen and is a complete hoax?

        One of my favourite shows when I was a tiddler, I think Hawaii 5-0 came on next on UTV back then iirc?
        Now, what’s your point caller?
