Reflecting on a Possible Coincidence

The other day after another massacre in another country, a post on FB said, “Thanks Obama.” Other similar sentiments have been posted implying somehow that our president is responsible for the increased violence in the world as well as in USA.
But let’s reflect. What else is going on in the world this year that could possibly be adding fuel to the hatred, intolerance, anger, and frustrations of people who blame others for their lot in life? Hmm, let’s see what else it could be. . . .
Yes, I am waiting for you to think about this.
I didn’t listen to or watch the RNC but saw bits and pieces on the nightly news, FB, and other media locations. There was anger, hatred, blaming others, misogyny, racism, and bigotry. Just watching without the sound, it looked made, sad, and scarey.
Thus far, watching the DNC without the sound, there isn’t the same angry fervor. Yes, there looks like some adamant Bernie supporters doing some chanting (who wouldn’t?) but I don’t see the gestures of hate and anger.
So let’s see this summer we can hardly go a day without traumatic violence against peoples, and what I can definitely see a correlation.
Although correlation doesn’t always mean causation. . . but I think I may be on to something here.
