REPORT: The Left’s Obsession & Promotion of Prescription Medication Has Led to Most MAJOR Mass Shootings
For years, the left has been in bed with Big Pharma, empowering those greedy purveyors of a ruthless industry by putting more and more kids on unnecessary prescription medications. Rather than getting to the root cause of the problem in that person’s life, everyone from Hollywood to Washington, D.C. to the fools in charge of the mainstream media have promoted taking pills to combat all of the natural human experiences you may encounter, from anxiety to depression to restlessness, the left’s answer to your woes comes in the form of a pill.
Despite their promise of better mental health, so frequently, lives collapse and crumble and, just like the sanitariums of yesteryear, you wallow in a misery that you consider ambiguous and distant, when in reality the source of your problem stems from the pills that you take every day of your life, by doctor’s order.
Mental health in America is “all the rage” and we created a pop culture out of mental afflictions. This means that we are entering a period of massive saturation wherein countless Americans are taking pills to solve phantom problems in their lives. While everyone on the left screams about gun laws and silencers and other nonsensical things, they are missing perhaps the most important silent element behind mass shootings: the pills.
Disclaimer: Not all mass shootings are triggered by prescription medication usage, obviously, and not all people are going to react psychotically and violently if they take prescription medication, obviously.
Prior to the 1990s, mass shootings were few and far between in the United States, and prior to the 1960s, most mass shootings were either familicides or felony related killings. Today, the shootings are extremely bizarre with vague motives, and they are triggered by something psychologically strange and for some reason, we cannot seem to pinpoint where the logic is in the insanity.
If we take out the obvious political mass murders, from Islamic terrorism to partisan political terrorism or racial terrorism, we are left with much more vague motives for our prospective killers. Now, consider another major factor: simple motives. Simple motives could range from your wife cheating on you, which leads you to kill a bunch of people in a mall, or your father beating you, which leads you go to school and kill all of the kids there. These are simple motives, they can be easy to figure out and are answerable questions, but they pose a much more curious question: so many people are bullied, or beaten, or cheated on, why do they not go and kill massive amounts of people at one time? One of the things we must consider is the prescription medication prescribed to help with the pre-existing trauma, which is frequently what is at play during mass shootings.
In the 1960s, prescription medication was pushed harder than ever, with Valium and Librium making their national debuts, countless other medical advancements relative to prescription medication began to become a part of the mainstream discourse. It took the nation by storm. The drug manufacturers realized the marketplace was ripe and that there were hungry buyers out there, so they ramped up their manufacturing and marketing. Public fear relative to the increase of prescription medication was quelled by a series of amendments and regulations ranging from the 1962 Kefauver-Harris amendments, which gave more power to the FDA when it came to the pharmaceutical industry, or the 1964 World Medical Association’s issuing of the Declaration of Helsinki, which would set standards for clinical research, among others things.
Despite all of this, drugs have consistently been, historically, substances that must be looked at time and time again and reformulated, reconsidered, and redeveloped. Martin Shkreli proved with the drug pyrimethamine, or Daraprim, that many of the drugs that were pushed on the populace were not conducive to fully solving the problem at hand. Thus, our faith in physicians and scientists must be as rationally shaky and under the same amount of scrutiny as any other group of individuals in any other profession, regardless of their supposed ethics. Daraprim is known for being horrible for the brain, degenerative, even, and Shkreli raised the price to find a better solution, something that countless drug manufacturers refuse to do. Research and development spending in the pharmaceutical industry sits around approximately 18% of their budget, which is absolutely marginal if you consider how much profit is constantly being made off of prescription medication. They are doing little, to no, research to make their ancient drugs any better. Daraprim, which is used to treat toxoplasmosis, was discovered in 1952 and put into clinical use in 1953 and the horribly volatile formula has sat untouched ever since. Men like Shkreli are the only hope for an industry with deep pockets and toxic greed.
In the modern American society, everyone from celebrities to collegiate hacks encourage the young and the old alike to open up about their mental health problems, which in theory is great, but this has created disillusionment, and every college kid who is stressing out over finals comes to think of themselves as clinically depressed and then they go and beg for medication because they are incapable of helping themselves, because society said it is okay to blame phantom factors for your inability to achieve.
The left loves medication. It dumbs down the populace, it makes them sedated, and just like so many of the other things liberals are “pro-“, prescription medication (specifically related to passing psychological roadblocks like depression) makes it so that you do not have to deal with your own problems, you can hide behind a pill . . . Now if that is not a metaphor for “Big Government” . . .
Consider this, what if you stopped going to therapists, wherein you spend your time complaining about and dwelling on the miserable failures and shortcomings of your life, and instead bootstrapped yourself? What if you stopped taking the anti-depressants they keep telling you that you need to be a normal person and instead ate better and exercised more? What if you stopped listening to delusional and mentally deranged celebrities, and what if you were a bit more skeptical about the things you keep hearing? Perhaps, you would save yourself from an agonizing life. We only have one life guaranteed to us, why would you waste it complaining and taking pills that only enhance your instability and dehumanize you?
Disclaimer: Obviously there are individuals out there who truly do need medical help related to mental problems, this is not aimed at that demographic, but rather, the body populace at large.
Much like deviant political ideologies, like Communism, pills are a flawed form of regulation. They are like the State: slow moving, prone to failure, and volatile. These pills, much like Communism, can lead to violence and unrest, chaos and deviant thoughts, and even self-harm. You have been bamboozled by power-broker-esque figures in suits who you believe masquerade around in lab coats to protect you from yourself. You have been tricked. These pills do not cure your child, they destroy them, and they can produce mass murderers. You are ruling out the instability that is brought on by drug usage, period.
Featured below is a shortlist of killers that were prescribed medication by a trained physician:
Las Vegas, Nevada, October 1, 2017: Stephen Paddock, the man behind the most deadly mass shooting in American history, killed 58 people and left 498 injured. He was prescribed Valium.
Austin, Texas, May 1, 2017: Kendrex J. White, 21, stabbed four people with a large hunting knife at the University of Texas, killing one, wounding three. He had taken two “happy pill,” a.k.a. the antidepressant Zoloft.
Charleston, South Carolina, June 17, 2015: Dylann Roof, 21, murdered nine people and wounded one individual. He was taking Suboxone, a drug used to break heroin and narcotic pain reliever addictions, not unlike methadone.
Tallahassee, Florida, November 20, 2014: Myron May, 31, opened fire in the library of Florida State University, wounding three. He was taking an anti-anxiety medication known as Hydroxyzine and was also, according to friends, prescribed antidepressant Wellbutrin and the ADHD medication Vyvanse.
Seattle, Washington, June 5, 2014: Aaron Ybarra, 26, murdered one person and wounded two others with a shotgun when he opened fire at Seattle Pacific University. Ybarra was prescribed Prozac and the antipsychotic Risperdal.
Milford, Connecticut, April 25, 2014: Chris Plaskon, 16, murdered Maren Sanchez, 16, in a stairwell at Jonathan Law High School after she refused his prom invitation. He was taking ADHD medication.
Sparks, Nevada, October 21, 2013: Jose Reyes, 12, opened fire at his middle school, killing a teacher and wounding two classmates before killing himself. He was taking a generic version of Prozac (fluoxetine), which was in his system at the time of his death.
Fresno, California, April 24, 2008: Jesus “Jesse” Carrizales, 17, hit a Fresno high school officer in the head with a baseball bat. He was prescribed Lexapro and Geodon, and it was discovered that he had a very high dose of Lexapro in his system, which could have caused paranoia.
Cleveland, Ohio, October 10, 2007: Asa Coon, 14, marched through his school with a gun in both of his hands and shot four people, wounding all of them, before taking his own life. He was taking the antidepressant Trazadone.
This list can go on and on, but it must also feature one of the most horrific mass shootings in American history – the Columbine massacre:
Columbine, Colorado, April 20, 1999: Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, murdered 12 students and a teacher while also wounding 26 other individuals before killing themselves. Harris was taking antidepressant Luvox, and Klebold’s medical records remain sealed. Both of the killers were taking anger-management classes and underwent counseling. Harris had even been seeing a psychiatrist prior to the massacre.
The left knows what they are doing and they understand the ramifications of their actions: this is what they want. So, before everyone begins shouting after the next mass shooting about gun laws, they should first consider regulating and looking into something that is not a Constitutional right: pills.
