United States is raising a nation of savages

Fox's title, not mine. So blow me.

United States is raising a nation of savages

By Todd Starnes Published August 21, 2013 FoxNews.com



Christopher Lane was gunned down in cold blood – shot in the back as he jogged alongside a road in Duncan, Okla. His alleged attackers were teenagers who told police they were bored and killed the college athlete for “the fun of it.”

The 22-year-old was attending school at East Central University – an Australian native who played baseball.

Good Samaritans saw the shooting and immediately rushed to offer aid. One person called 911. Another tried to administer CPR. But it was too late. The young athlete with a promising future lingered for several minutes – gasping for air. And then he died – on a lonely stretch of an Oklahoma roadway.

Police Chief Dan Ford said they found a chilling message on one of the alleged killer’s Facebook pages: “Bang. Two drops in two hours.”
“I think they were on a killing spree,” Ford told Australian Associated Press. “We would have had more bodies that night if we didn’t get them.”
In other words – the teenage boys were hunting humans.

In Northwest Indiana, a 17-year-old boy is accused of hunting and killing three kittens with a bow and arrow. Police told CBS News in Chicago the teenager skewered the kittens on an arrow.

Investigator Michelle Dvorscak told the television station the boy posted the photographs on Facebook.

“He did confess,” she said. “He said he was bored out of his mind the week before school started and decided to hunt some kittens.”

In Brunswick, Ga. two teenagers are accused of shooting a young mother and murdering her 13-month-old child. Sherry West was taking her baby out for a stroll when the boys demanded she give them cash.

“A boy approached me and told me he wanted my money, and I told him I didn’t have any money,” the woman told reporters. “And he said, ‘Give me your money or I’m going to kill you and I’m going to shoot your baby and kill your baby.”

She pleaded with them to spare her child – but one of the boys took a gun and shot the 13-month-old between the eyes.

We live in a nation that celebrates and glorifies violence. The proof is in our movies, our music, and our athletic pastimes.

“Violence has become the new pornography of our culture,” noted author Robert Jeffress tells me. “One cause of the violence is the unprecedented and explicit violence in video games and cable television. It’s desensitized teenagers to the idea of taking a human life.”

Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Tex., said parents bear responsibility for raising a generation of thugs roaming the streets in search of their prey.

“Parents have absolutely failed in their most basic, fundamental responsibility as parents,” he said. “And that is to instill God’s moral law in the hearts of their children.”

The Good Book indeed says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

“As long as you continue to tell teenagers they are nothing but a biological accident, we shouldn’t expect them to act in accordance with a Creator-God who has basic laws concerning life and death,” Pastor Jeffress tells me.

It’s true that American culture has turned its back on God. As a result, we’ve lost our moral compass – replacing the moral absolutes of the Almighty with the moral whims of an all-knowing federal government.

Right is now wrong and wrong is now right. And under the leadership of President Obama criminals have become victims and their prey have become afterthoughts – ingredients for the surge in teenage violence.

“Our culture continues to deny or marginalize the existence of God,” Jeffress tells me. “We shouldn’t be surprised that teenagers would ignore the most basic laws of God – like thou shall not kill.”

And as the stench of our rotting culture sweeps across the nation, I’ve come to the conclusion that we have reached a moment in history when the make-believe world of violence no longer satisfies our bloodlust.

The United States is now reaping what it has sown – for raising a nation of savages.

Some of the games I play, you chop off heads and other body parts, blood flies, blood pools, it's pretty intense. Play something like Skyrim on a PC, and you can download mods to make stuff even worse. It's basically playing like playing an R-rated Conan movie.

The rap thing is a slippery slope. While I certainly believe that it's a negative force on every community (Black, White, Asian, Latino), there's Freedom of Speech involved.

While I'd love nothing more for than Gangsta Rap to be abolished, there were Christian Fundamentalists that wanted "Rock and Roll" to be abolished and banned in the 50's (and in many places it was banned) and that was of course, very wrong. Rap IS different, IMHO.

As a parent, I want nothing to do with it, whatsoever, and will certainly make my voice heard as my children reach listening age.
I don't want it banned, either. But exposure should be limited. Again, shitty parents will be shitty. I don't have an easy answer.

That's the biggest issue: They're not parents in the truest sense of the word.
Yep.

Let me ask you this - do you think the odds are greater that you'll be gunned down by one of the handful of mass shooters with an AR at your workplace, or that you'll be gunned down by one of the thousands of gang members infesting your city?

It's not complicated.

Wow, that's some ****ed up shit. I had no idea that video games were that graphic. We play Super Mario Brothers, Wii Sports and Mario Kart.

I have a very hard time believing that child murderers are popping up out of the blue due to video game violence and hate regulation, but parents should absolutely do a better job of monitoring what their kids play.

It has absolutely nothing to do with race for me, as I grew up on Freddie King, BB King, Albert King, Hendrix, Chuck Berry and Motown, not to mention the fact that my idol was Muhammed Ali as a kid.

It has to due with the fact that the lyrics aren't beneficial to society. It can't and won't be banned but if parents stop their kids from listening to and downloading harmful, hateful, violent rap music, it will go away.

This is a Skyrim screenshot. Granted, some extra mods are involved to make it look like this, but this is the game. Graphic violence, women with giant boobed hooker bodies in skimpy armor. IT ROCKS! But probably not for your elementary school aged children.

Is that really going to happen, though? For most of these kids who are going to end up incarcerated, dad isn't really in the picture and if he is, often mom and dad listen to the same thing.

Jay-Z gets to pal around with the president, and he built an empire selling songs like "Threat".

We're using instagram to fight crime and guns. So who knows.

The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night?

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

To answer your question, probably not.

Look at the grand theft auto series, every kid has played one of those. I mean, they are fun if you are an adult and appreciate that it's make-believe, but if you are a kid with an impressionable mind I think you do end up fantasizing about doing that kind of stuff.

My brothers and I would watch WWF when we were kids and then we'd be trying wrestling moves on each other in the basement, nothing has changed except what the kids are watching and what's shaping them has become so much more antisocial.

Those Grand Theft Auto games are ENORMOUS. They sell like $500 million dollars worth in their first week of release.

If kids were taking that fantasy to the next level on a regular basis, we'd have a million people gunned down a year instead of 12,000 (or whatever the homicide rate is per year).

Crime is actually way down and most of its done in the inner city. We really should reexamine our drug laws.
