Shock and anger have broken out as additional details have emerged about the horrific mass shooting that claimed the lives of 19 children and two adults at a Texas elementary school, particularly regarding the conduct of the local police department which reportedly failed to intervene for over an hour, squandering the chance to take down the shooter in the early stages of the bloody slaughter.

The Uvalde Police Department is under heavy fire for its inaction and failure to engage 18-year-old Salvadore Ramos despite the standard practice being to immediately confront active shooters in order to minimize the loss of life, an inexplicable failure that some see as being the fault of greater failings in modern American society, including Jason Whitlock of the “Fearless” podcast who slammed the California “pansies” who control social media and have waged a war on masculinity.
Whitlock appeared on Thursday’s edition of “Jesse Watters Primetime” where he opined on what could be the main factor in the culture that is contributing to the rise in mass shootings, particularly in schools.
“Cowardice, fear and cowardice,” he said. “Our culture is controlled by fear and cowardice, masculinity, traditional male values are under attack. It’s not any mystery why young boys are confused, angry, confused about their identity, angry at the world. Their natural instincts have been under attack probably the last 50, 60 years and most acutely in the last 15 to 20 years, since we turned over our culture to the pansies in northern California and their social media apps.”
“They’re imposing their view of the world, their standard for manhood on the rest of us, and we men have been cowered and have taken it,” he added.
“And people are wondering why the police didn’t do anything, didn’t run in,” Whitlock continued, “they exist in a culture totally controlled by fear and cowardice.”
“We haven’t created a culture that supports men doing what comes natural to them protecting women and children,” he said. “That’s what comes natural to us when we’re allowed to be men, but this new culture we’ve built is set up to totally annihilate, eliminate our natural instincts and make us think oh, the people in northern California know better than God about what a man is and what a man should do. Men, boys, under attack, they are acting out angrily and we are too cowardly to do anything about it.”
Later in the segment, Whitlock said, “Mental illness is running rampant in America. Depression, kids are committing suicide. Kids are overdosing on drugs. It’s our smartphones. It’s the Big Tech companies in Northern California trying to reprogram us from God’s natural order, that’s what they’re doing.”
“We’re spending all of our time making sure there’s a safe space for Lia Thomas to swim against girls in the Ivy League. Social media, obsessed with making sure that George Floyd, hyped up on drugs, we’d better send a limo and two women to go give him a reach-around and escort him to jail as politely as possible,” he added, taking a jab at the career criminal and drug addict who perished while resisting arrest, becoming a martyr figure to the “woke” left.
Whitlock also mentioned Floyd in a tweet about the “cultural rot” stemming from a culture that glorifies a violent thug who once pointed a gun at a pregnant woman’s belly.
I'm not defending the actions of the officers. But we've demonized law enforcement to the point that there are far fewer rewards for being a hero, for taking risks. When your culture makes George Floyd the hero, real heroes stand down. Cultural rot has consequences. https://t.co/1YvYt121qt

“I’m just sorry, this is a mistake this is not what we should be focused on. We have to allow young boys to develop into grown men and understand their responsibility as grown men as leaders,” he said. “You look at that police force I feel somewhat sympathetic for them, but our culture is so hostile toward policing, we’ve run our natural leaders out of leadership positions across corporate America, throughout law enforcement, our culture has dramatically changed.”
“Jesse, I look 20 years ago, 21 years ago, a bunch of men, mostly, ran up into the World Trade Center towers knowing very likely they’re gonna die,” Whitlock added. “If that happened today, I don’t think men would stand up and do what those brave men did on 9-11, our culture has changed so much. They sit down and sit out and contemplate for several hours and most of them would check out and not do a darn thing.”
Meanwhile, the Uvalde Police Department is taking heavy fire on its Facebook page.
One user responded to a post offering condolences to the community.
“You all sat out there and scratched your butts while forcefully blocking parents from doing the job you refused to,” he wrote.
Another user added, “The cowardly and ineffective police department in the US right now is the Uvalde police department, who would prefer tackling grieving parents to the ground over protecting a school full of children.”
“Every officer involved needs to resign including the chief. This is absolutely ridiculous,” a user wrote.
“The cowardly and ineffective police department in the US right now is the Uvalde police department, who would prefer tackling grieving parents to the ground over protecting a school full of children,” added another.
There were also a number of memes critical of the department posted on Facebook,
Whitlock, who has been a frequent critic of leftist social media platforms and their ruinous effects on society, just may be onto something.
