Police in Lafayette, Louisiana are evidently struggling to understand why the outspokenly misogynistic, racist and anti-Semitic John Russell “Rusty” Houser murdered two women and wounded 9 other moviegoers at a showing of “Trainwreck,” a film written by and starring Amy Schumer, a feminist comedian with a Jewish father, known for joking frankly about sex.

Rusty was “a white good ol’ boy” with a stellar background by Louisiana standards and the superintendent of police could be convinced, Tubularsock feels, that a motive like pop corn makes perfect “cents”!

    Well … motives are difficult to really understand with such limited information.

Because capitalism has magically solved all the problems of women and minorities, crimes against women and minorities can’t be politically motivated terrorism – at least according to the propaganda the corporate media force feeds us.
