Last night’s Paris tragedy, the worst terrorist attack in the Western Hemisphere since 9/11, exposed the darkness of humanity and sent many in search of compassion. However, the hurt did not stop some politicians from using the events to spread their agendas.
Ben Carson, for example, called for the U.S. to block Middle East refugees from its entering its borders.
The attacks were a bleak reminder of the Charlie Hebdo tragedy from January, after which Donald Trump sent out an inhumane tweet.
The tweet was recirculated in the wake of last night’s attacks and again angered many. The normally reserved Frank Ocean responded to the tweet, and sent his thoughts to Paris on Tumblr.
ON THE REAL THOUGH DONALD TRUMP. HOW IS IT ‘INTERESTING’ THAT THESE SHOOTINGS HAPPENED IN A COUNTRY THAT’S TOUGH ON GUNS? TELL US DON? BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE THAT VACUOUS OBSERVATION WAS ABOUT GIVING YOUR NRA-LOVING CONSTITUENCY A HANDJOB AND SPINNING A TRAGEDY FOR POLITICAL GAIN AND I’M THINKING MAYBE USING A SITUATION WHERE DOZENS OF INNOCENTS HAVE JUST BEEN MURDERED IN THE STREETS ISN’T THE BEST TIME. NO?
LOVE TO PARIS AND ANY INDIVIDUAL OR FAMILY WHO’S LOST LOVED ONES TO EVIL ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD. CHILL W/ THE ANGLES.
Last night’s horrific events left at least 128 dead, and flooded Parisian emergency rooms with wounded victims. France is in a three-day period of mourning.
