I saw this posted in Facebook and I could not believe it. I went to Twitter and I made my own screen capture and I still do not believe it.
This is recycling from back in the Clinton years. Back then there was not a “scientific” study to back up the idea that simple mortals, paragons of nice and virtue would become rabid killers of orphans and babies the second they touched a gun. I guess the best equivalence of touching a gun I can give you is this scene from the movie Heavy Metal when the witness plays with the Loc-Nar (green marble thing). Go to directly to 1:24 if it does not cue.
This will probably sink on the weight of its own stupidity as its predecessor did 30 years ago.

Yeah, this is from an article done up by an “anthropologist” at Dartmouth College who studies Haiti. It was published in the Pacific Standard magazine.
RTWT if you can stomach it. It is illuminating.
This idiotic idea comes from the medieval superstition of the Deodand. It’s that a thing, an inanimate object has moral agency and can exert control over the human mind.
I kid you not, she’s actually either that stupid, or thinks the readers (or whoever is approving her funding) are. I wonder how much she’s soaked us taxpayers for the past 12 years or so she’s been doing her “studies”.
To see this crap-for-brains drivel written by a purported Ivy League intellectual only confirms the decrepit state of current ‘higher education’.
OK so her three primary examples were, in American terminology, gang-banging thugs in the middle of a turf war but it was the gun’s fault.
And if you disagree w/ her, you’re racist.
What? You think brown people are capable of independent agency, personal responsibility, and moral choice?
Are you some kind of racist?
So, how does she explain police officers that I have worked with, compassionate, Christian, service driven? How did they resist the Lock’load-nar?
Lock’load-Nar… I like that ! 🙂
