It’s amazing what I’m finding on the web tonight, seeing the libs and progressives jumping to conclusions about the motives of Jared Loughner, when nobody can really know what was in his mind. We do know, however, from other details, that he’s most probably not a tea party afficionado or devotee. Nevertheless, teh oh-so-tolerant lefites have some warm affection and love to send to the Tea Party conservatives.
I’ll begin with my favorite of all tonight:
“The Tucson Tea Party will be made to pay for the blood on their hands. An eye for an eye. You want a civil war, you got one. KILL Jesse Kelly for his role, then KILL Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Gleen Beck. Whoever puts BULLETS in ther HEADSshall be a NATIONAL HERO.”
That’s just from one commenter in a story in The Hill today. Here’s a screenshot of the entire comment – I’m hoping that someone will share this with the appropriate law enforcement personnel.
Here are some more gems I’ve found, with corresponding annotation:
On the heels of the mass murder and shooting at a Tucson “Congress on Your Corner” event with Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which left 6 dead and twelve injured, Democrat Sheriff of Pima County, AZ, Clarence Dupnik blames Jared Loughner’s mass slaughter on “vitriolic rhetoric” coming from talk radio. He says that we must all remember that psychos like Loughner are more susceptible to this vitriol coming from the “radio business” and the “TV business,” and its message about “tearing down the government.” (Read = Tea Party, Talk Radio, and Fox News)
He also says that all members of Congress, and really all elected officials, face a threat at some point or the other in their careers due to the contentious nature of the laws and bills passed, legislative decisions made, and that unfortunately, Arizona has become the “mecca for prejudice and bigotry” since S.B. 1070 passed. Since when is it the Pima County Sheriff’s countenance to deem what is socially right or wrong, especially when it’s spoken in ignorance of the law? And Sheriff Dupnik might want to reserve his judgment until all is discovered about this case, considering some of Jared’s favorite reads include “Mein Kampf” and “The Communist Manifesto.” Yeah… a real right-wing extremist, for sure.
Man, oh, man. This man is really starting to scare the crap out of me with this appeasement horse squeeze.
And on top of that, he never even answered the girl’s question. Believe me, Indians know EXACTLY what Jihad is, as its definition has been written in the streets…in blood…for decades. If anyone knows what Jihad is, it’s certainly the Indians. Unfortunately, our Commander in Chief can’t bring himself to admit it himself.
From a partial transcript, h/t Mediaite (I don’t know who did this transcript, but I tried to fix it as much as possible for spelling and punctuation errors.):
Barbara Walters: It’s why I sometimes have trouble here and don’t give my opinion because I’m also with ABC news. If you are a commentator and you’re giving opinions, you’re in one category.
Sherri Sheppard: Is that a pundit?
Walters: You can call it a pundit. If you are giving the news straight, you’re not supposed to give your opinions. Now, that’s changed so much. We’re in a whole other time now. Everybody has an opinion. If you don’t make more noise or scream louder or so on, you don’t get the ratings. So it is a funny blurred line. They said he’s a journalist, he’s a correspondent, and he’s not supposed to give opinions. But when he goes on another cable show like Fox and does it — so it’s a very blurry line. In the meantime, we hope he’ll come on with us and, if nothing else, give Joy and Whoopi 10%.
