[Ed. – Sure it is. Everything is.]
Comedienne Lena Dunham, following the murder of more than 50 people in Las Vegas, insisted on Twitter that the shooting was actually about her favorite pet issues.
Police say there is not yet enough evidence to identify shooter Stephen Paddock’s motive. The shooter’s brother likewise said he had no political or religious affiliations to speak of.
But Dunham opined that the attack on a country music festival was in fact about access to guns, and also about race, gender, and capitalism itself.
No way not to politicize this tragedy. It’s about gender & race as well as access to guns. Considering it random is comforting & dangerous.

In response to a tweet from a follower that added, “and capitalism,” Dunham tweeted affirmatively, “yes.”
Conservatives on Twitter remained unconvinced that a 64-year-old white man’s attack on a Jason Aldean concert was motivated by race or gender.
