Behold Eric Greitens, who is running for office in Missouri by advertising his ability to fire really big guns.
He’s getting millions in donations for his campaign.
Now here’s Daisy Ridley, who attended an event that recognized the victims of gun violence, and wrote this:
Thinking about how lucky I am like……… Serious bit: as I sat in the audience yesterday tears were streaming down my face at the tribute to those that have been lost to gun violence. I didn’t get a great picture of the incredible group that came on stage but they were so brave. It was a true moment of togetherness. We must #stoptheviolence
Weeping at the useless deaths of so many people so strongly antagonized NRA fanatics that they hounded her off instagram.
I want to live in a world where the Eric Greitens are laughed at and don’t have a chance of being elected to office, and the humanism of the Daisy Ridleys is appreciated and praised.
This is not that world.
