We've all heard the phrase "dumb blonde," essentially stereotyping blonde females as having little intellect. Of course, this is all in good fun since no one actually believes hair color has any influence over intelligence. Additionally, there is the phrase "all beauty, no brains" to stereotype pretty females as having low intelligence. Unfortunately, in one case, the phrase "all beauty, no brains" applies to former MTV celebrity Becky Griffin regarding her tweet after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
According to Breitbart:
Reporter-model Becky Griffin took to Twitter on Thursday and responded to Wednesday’s mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida by insinuating that alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz wouldn’t have carried out mass murder if his mother had aborted him instead of putting him up for adoption.
“Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions are wrong,” Griffin wrote, in a tweet that went viral on Thursday, adding the hashtags #Florida and #ParklandSchoolShooting.

The former MTV personality’s tweet was in reference to an Associated Press report that Nikolas and his brother had been living with a family friend after the death of his adoptive parents.
Griffin later tweeted, “This drew so much attention by ppl jumping to conclusions like I think adoption is wrong, when all I said was that a woman who was clearly unfit to have a child — did — did NOT raise him — and maybe it could have turned out better if she could have made a CHOICE.”
Cruz, 17, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. Another 15 were reportedly hospitalized for injuries.
Someone forgot to send the brunette airhead the memo on Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973 that States jumped on as "law" to allow women to murder their unborn children, meaning Nikolas Cruz's mother had a choice – an illegal choice at that.
Ms. Griffin needs a come-uppance.
Ms. Griffin, you are dumber than Beavis and Butthead.
First of all, abortion is murder since life begins at conception.
Moreover, a Supreme Court decision is not now nor ever has been law, meaning there is no "legal" murder of anyone at any age, particularly when speaking of the unborn.
However, since States jumped at the chance to allow women to murder their unborn children, Nikolas Cruz's biological mother had that choice. Apparently, no one remembered to give you that memo. Instead, his biological mother chose to give life to her child. However, enjoy that foot in your mouth. By the way, thank you so much for tweeting a study that shows the murder of the unborn does nothing to decrease crime. But, I digress.
Ma'am, it is terribly crass, wrong and an assumption to declare the shooter's biological mother as "clearly unfit to have a child." Do you or did you know her? More than likely, you did not and again, stuck the other foot in your mouth. Hopefully, it was clean and nicely manicured. If she felt she could not properly care for the child, she responsibly gave her baby life then placed him for adoption so he would have a chance at a proper home with two loving parents. Did he have that? No one in the news media has mentioned it except to say his adoptive parents are deceased – the father from heart disease and the mother from pneumonia just last November. And, the shooter had a biological brother, who was adopted into the same home, who so far, has not exhibited any mental health problems.
If the potential of any individual to suffer from mental illness is a reason to commit murder against the unborn, you, Ma'am, are no better than Adolf Hitler, who murdered the mentally ill and mentally challenged and sterilized women who might produce either. It wasn't just the Jewish people Hitler wanted to eradicate from the German gene pool. Read some history. Watch some documentaries on Hitler's solution to creating the "Master Race" then get back to us. A good place to start is Wikipedia, Nuremberg Laws. Lack of intelligence is strong with you. It's a good thing your mother chose to give you life instead of murdering you because of the possibility of low intelligence. Be sure and thank your mother next time you see her.
And, for your information, not all mental illness is genetic as you mentioned on your Twitter account. So far, only five have been identified as having genetic roots. As a reminder, the news media has not mentioned Nikolas Cruz's brother having mental health issues. However, if you believe that mental illness is genetic, you have to believe that intelligence is genetic also. Maybe a sympathy card is in order for your parents since somewhere in the genetic lottery, you lost.
No one is attacking you for your opinion. They are questioning your intellect to equating someone putting their child up for adoption as being a precursor to the child being violent, with the illogical conclusion to murder the unborn as a solution. For your information, if dozens of individuals comprehend your tweet in the same manner, the problem is with the communication on the transmission end, not the receiving one. Moreover, in your subsequent tweet, you did no better, as was mentioned earlier.
And yes, Ms. Griffin, abortion, murder of the unborn in the womb, is wrong and a sin. The Lord clearly commanded, "Thou shalt not commit murder." Murder is wrong and all nations have laws criminalizing it. In fact, when someone murders a pregnant woman, that individual is usually charged with two counts of murder – one for the mother and one for the unborn child. So, if murdering the unborn is somehow legal or "not wrong", the laws of society would not be written as such surrounding women killed while being pregnant.
Before you get all excited to tweet more unclear statements, implying it is acceptable for mothers to murder their unborn children because of a Supreme Court decision is about as insane as accepting that in Nazi Germany it was legal to murder Jews. There was no law in Nazi Germany legalizing the murder of Jews. Those who participated in murdering the Jews did so following instructions. Surely, you have heard of the defense used at the Nuremberg Trials, "I was only doing what I was told." No laws exist in the united States declaring it "legal" to murder one's unborn child.
One imagines you hastily tweeted for some grave need to have attention. Well, Ma'am, you got it. Unfortunately, it wasn't the type you craved. But, you did prove a couple of points – you don't have to be blonde to be dumb and intelligence is not always contained in a pretty package. It's hard to fathom how you got to where you are in your career. If one were to assume, as you seem to do about people you do not know, it would be safe to say you didn't get there because of your intelligence level.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
