Addressing Looney Left's Attacks After Arizona Shootings

Looney Left
Tragedy In Tucson Will Not Deter Congress From Carrying Out Their Duties
Sen. Republican Leader McConnell was in his home state of Kentucky [the Senate is in recess until Jan 24th] and spoke to students in Shelbyville about the tragic shooting in Tucson and how Congress will move forward. McConnell said, "When an elected representative is gunned down in the very act of exchanging ideas with his or her constituents, democracy itself is attacked."

The AP covered the event and reported; “At the start of his meeting with a group of students at Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelby County, McConnell denounced the shooting as a ‘heinous crime" that ‘will not deter any of us from carrying out our duties. A strong democracy depends on a free and robust exchange of ideas.’

“Later, a student asked McConnell if he felt his safety had been compromised since the Arizona shooting. “McConnell responded that attacks against members of Congress have been rare in the U.S.

“‘We obviously always think about something like this in the wake of an event like the one that happened Saturday,’ he said. ‘We’re going to be taking a look, in the wake of this, at the way security is provided and be talking about it.’  But he added, ‘We don't want to get into a situation where elected representatives don't feel comfortable interacting with other people they represent. And I don't think we will end up in that position.’”

Jared Loughner Was Not A Republican
Gary L. Bauer:"Yesterday a fake voter registration document circulated online purporting to show that Jared Loughner is a registered Republican. It was a well-done fake, except that the left-wing dope who produced it spelled Tucson incorrectly!

Loughner registered to vote in 2006 as an independent. He voted in 2008. We don't know for whom, but I doubt it was for the McCain/Palin ticket. Interestingly, in 2010 when Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords ran for reelection and was challenged by a Republican candidate strongly supported by Tea Party activists, Loughner did not even bother to vote!

Here is more evidence of the media's bias: CBS was so eager to gauge the impact of its "spin machine" that it has already conducted a poll asking who or what is responsible for the Tucson shooting. The good news is that the results were a big disappointment to Paul Krugman, Keith Olbermann and their ilk.

According to the poll, 57% of Americans do not believe that "overheated" or conservative political rhetoric was responsible for the attack on Rep. Giffords. Unfortunately, 42% of self-identified Democrats did buy into the smear, which is a sad indication of how far paranoid extremism now reaches into that party.

A Dangerous Turn
Bill Wilson in a lengthy article discussed the dangerous turn that is being rhetorically promoted by the Left over the Arizona shooting.  "A mentally deranged individual commits an act of unspeakable violence. Within minutes the professional Left starts efforts to place blame on conservatives and Republicans, piously demanding some solution that — surprise — gives them tactical advantage in future policy fights. Let’s call it for what it is: a shameless, callous attempt to use the tragedy of others for gain, political or otherwise. This renders these people as contemptible as the shooter. But it makes these self-appointed moralists something else; it makes them extremely dangerous. [Full Story]

Democrat Group Using Gifford’s Shooting For Fundraiser!
Warner Todd Huston: An extreme, left-wing Democrat group calling itself 21st Century Democrats has had the gall to send out an email blast using as a fundraising tool Saturday’s criminal shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona. Judge John Roll and four others were killed in the incident, one of them a 9-year-old girl, but these Democrats are ignorant enough to be using this incident to try and squeeze donations from its supporters. Some might think the action of 21st Century Democrats is itself a crime — a crime against decency. [Full Story]

Lame blame game from the left
George Will in an article makes the following insightful point: "It would be merciful if, when tragedies such as Tucson's occur, there were a moratorium on sociology. But respites from half-baked explanations, often serving political opportunism, are impossible because of a timeless human craving and a characteristic of many modern minds.

A characteristic of many contemporary minds is susceptibility to the superstition that all behavior can be traced to some diagnosable frame of mind that is a product of promptings from the social environment. From which flows a political doctrine: Given clever social engineering, society and people, can be perfected. This supposedly is the path to progress. It actually is the crux of progressivism. And it is why there is a reflex to blame conservatives first." [Full Story]

Anonymous Robert W. McDowell, Jr. said...

A lone man with a gun, since reported by a number of sources to be mentally deranged, walked into an open 'sidewalk' meeting being held by a female Democrat member of the Congress House. It has been reported that he patiently waited in line to get to speak to her or ask a question and upon reaching nearly the front of the line pulled out his 'autoload' pistol and shot her in the head then shot dead five more present and wounded several more, some critical who later died.

Thankfully, it now appears that she will survive and be able to return to normal activities.

However, one of those killed was the Republican chief justice of
the local Federal District Court, a reported to be very respected and admired judge appointed by President Bush 41 (George H. W.) and thus has been on the bench for at least twenty years. Another victim is reported to be a nine year old girl who was born on September 11, 2001, and was very interested in politics and government.

Sadly, the county Sheriff has gone public blaming 'talk radio', the
'Tea Party Movement, 'Sarah Palin' for putting the idea into this man's head. He seems to have forgotten that his own office had received numerous complaints about the strange behavior of the killer, even having been expelled from a school until he had a mental evaluation. Some of those who made complaints have been quoted as saying that they were told that the office "had him under watch". The sheriff also ignores that the behavior of this man began before Sarah Palin was known in the 'lower 48' or that the 'Tea Party' operations even were thought of.

As we have come to expect, the national media has immediately
jumped on the bandwagon of 'right wing' blaming and those in the anti-gun ownership movement have renewed their screaming for more controls on gun ownership and limitations on the amount of ammunition we would be allowed to have. They all seem to ignore the provisions in the Constitution that protect these rights, by those who choose to obey the law.

All the while those same screamers shout blames on the law abiding, Constitution loving, citizens who quietly go on their honest way with deep sympathy for the victims and despising the perpetrator.
