In the cafeteria of Marysville Pilchuck High School in Marysville, Washington, at about 10:45 a.m. (Pacific) today, Jaylen Fryburg, a freshman at the school, opened fire killing another student before turning the gun on himself.
Four other students were also wounded and hospitalized. Three suffered head wounds and are in critical condition at Providence, while the fourth had lesser injuries and was transferred to Harborview Medical Center.
At 4:38 p.m., less than six hours later, abominable human being Anita Sarkeesian tweeted this:
As of this writing, none of the victims (aside from the shooter) have yet been identified. Two kids are dead. Three more are in critical condition with head wounds, hopefully they’ll all survive and make full recoveries, but at this point it’s unknown. Blood is still on the floor at Marysville Pilchuck High School’s cafeteria and Anita Sarkeesian thinks this is a good time to hijack this tragedy and try to make it into a gender issue and pigeon-hole it into her personal agenda against the ‘The Patriarchy ™.”
Not a single word of condolence is ever offered to the victims or their families.
I fully admit that I am a critic of Sarkeesian’s views, but I always thought that she was merely someone that I disagreed with and got too much of a free pass from the media. I know no one in the media will call her out on this either, and she’ll claim any backlash she gets as abuse against her. This is Rush Limbaugh levels of scumbaggery.
Sarkeesian and the trolls deserve each other.
Update, Oct 25: And right on cue…
Totally called it.
Truly, Anita Sarkeesian is the real victim here and not the community that was devastated yesterday which she then exploited for her own purpose.
What a miserable excuse for a human being.
