The left and the ever slavish and obedient lame stream media have plumbed new depths of low political stunts. Trying to tie the Tea Party or the Patriot Movement to the tragic and senseless shooting of Arizona Representative Gabrielle Giffords.
Five others, including Federal Judge John Roll, were killed. A total of eighteen people were shot by 22 year old Jared Loughner… described as a leftist loner. Despite this, or ignoring it completely as they usually do, the lapdogs, intent on following the party line, are loudly condemning all things conservative.
Hey… we’ve been this route before. The left always uses tragedy as a launching pad. Just exactly as they did in 2008. Remember? Conservatives cannot let the liars of the left spew their poison unchallenged. This is going to prove to be a pretty good gut check on our young guns. Let’s see them take the message away from the Marxists for a change.
Yes, the shootings were tragic. The loss of life was appalling. Our prayers go out for the recovery of Representative Giffords and the rest of the injured. Prayers are scarce solace for those who have lost a loved one, but we offer them nonetheless.
Predictably, the left is going to attempt to ramp this thing up into a gun control issue, and attack the first amendment at the same time. Equally predictably, there are a couple of knuckle-headed DeMarxist Representatives moving to do that now as this is written. It smells a lot like the Brady Bill redux. That bill was unconstitutional from the day that it was proposed. These will probably get short shrift also, in the face of the new Republican majority.
The fact that the shooter was one of theirs is small satisfaction in that some seriously disturbed person, whether on the left or the right, would be ridiculously difficult to spot if they had no more track record than Loughner. After all, there’s no law against being a ‘creep’, as one college student who had a class with him said. So he was a little creepy and he was prone to disruptive outbursts in class. What I’m driving at is that everybody knows someone a little, or very, creepy. There simply was no way to determine that he was going to go off.
Maybe they’ll find he planned the whole thing very carefully. But why target the Congresswoman? Who knows what triggered his twisted mind as he plotted his deed? It remains to be seen how low the LSM outlets will go to demonize the conservative right, but if it’s anywhere near their ratings that could be very low indeed.
