Vitriol To The Left Of Sanity
All day long the news has been about the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. As more comes out about the shooter, it appears that Lee Loughner did not appear to have a "right wing agenda".
This despite the fact that Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, a Democrat, also found a political element in Saturday's bloodshed. Dupnik argued that the "vitriol" of the country's harshly polarized political climate was partly to blame, arguing that unbalanced individuals are uniquely "susceptible" to vitriol.
Actually friends of the shooter said Jared believed the U.S. government was behind 9/11, and worried that governments were maneuvering to create a unified monetary system (“a New World Order currency” one friend said) so that social elites and bureaucrats could control the rest of the world.
Will the press make a lot of hay about these facts rather than the constant cries that this is all "Sarah Palin's fault." Doubt it.
I find it interesting that much has been made of the whole Sarah Palin targeted district map. Personally did not like the map but then again I didn't like this classic "targeted map" from the Dems.
This map appears on this page of the Democratic Leadership Committee website (dated 2004 during the Bush years). Would you say that "Behind enemy lines" might be considered a bit militant?
Sandra Bernhard promising to having Sarah Palin gang raped by her big black brother. (Frankly I found that a two fer one hat suggests that blacks are rapists at heart and that rape is the perfect punishment for someone who has philosophical differences with you.)
Or how about that wacky fun loving movie that won the International Critics Prize - Death of a President
DEATH OF A PRESIDENT follows the investigation of the fictional assassination of President George W. Bush in October 2007. Combining real archival footage with a credible but fictional story, "Death of a President" presents a fascinating and thought-provoking political thriller.
Yeah it's thought provoking alright. It provokes me to ask why was such a movie celebrated?
Then there is this little gem from former talk show star Montel Williams when he encourages Rep. Michele Bachmann to slit her throat. Certainly no one could possible see this as violent rhetoric.
Honestly I'm just sick of it. Sick of it all and I think many Americans are sick of it too.
If you head on over to a certain Democratic website feel that the media is now denying the obvious "facts" that this was all because of Sarah Palin.
What is your proof? What is your proof?
Just because you are a Republican does NOT make you a racist. It does NOT make you a wack job. It does NOT mean you hate the current President. This doesn't mean I agree with him and everything he does but I don't hate him.
The Vitriol needs to stop and it needs to stop now.
Perhaps Sheriff Clarence Dupnik should have spent less time making such inflamatory comments without facts to back them up and spent more time responding to death threats the suspect made in the months leading up to Saturday’s rampage.
his department was well aware of Jared Loughner’s mental instability and may have been slow to respond to death threats the suspect made in the months leading up to Saturday’s rampage.
