Stephen Bowers – The Shipyard Shooter Not Terrorism?

Stephen Bowers has a quick observation on the Shipyard Shooter.  While there seemed to be a lot of confusion and disinformation about this jerk, the Media was quick to point out he was not a terrorist, nor was his act an act of terrorism. Just like the Fort hood shooter, who was also not a terrorist.

The Fort Hood creep was simply shouting “Allah Akbar” while gunning down his fellow soldiers as a result of “workplace stress.” He was forced into his shooting scenario due to blatant racism, anti-Islamic sentiment, sexism, Tail-Hook, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the failed “Cash for Clunkers” gambit, resistance to Obamacare and the generally nasty attitude of middle Americans against the rubbish foisted on us by the current administration. No wonder he flipped!

The “Allah Akbar” thing was just a fun ruse.

But he was NOT a terrorist (in spite of his subsequent admissions and court room shenanigans of beard growing and nasty pronouncements against his adopted homeland).

So, I for one am greatly relieved to learn the Shipyard Shooter is also NOT a terrorist. In fact he is  … ooops … was … a Buddhist.  The Administration’s experts over at FBI can tell these things by just looking at a stiff on a coroner’s table. So just keep moving. Nothing to see here.

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
