The Left Handed Guns

It didn’t take the Radical Democrat Left long to take political advantage of the attempted assassination of one of their own.

Shortly after Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords collapsed outside a Safeway in Tucson, critically wounded in a hail of bullets that killed six and wounded 13 others, the Democrats began their stampede to blame Rush Limbaugh, the Republican Party, Sarah Palin, Fox News and the Tea Party.

Why blame the real criminal, 22-year-old Jared Lee Loughner, a loner with a long history of psychological and emotional problems, when you can score points against your political opposition? In the words of that great pillar of Democrat fascism, Ralm Emmanuel, you should never let a crisis go to waste.

I’m surprised the Democrats didn’t try to excavate the body of Ronald Reagan in an attempt to prove he was the actual triggerman.

Blaming Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin for the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords is the same as blaming Paul Revere for the British marching on Lexington and Concord.

Nonsensical ramblings of the disingenuous lunatic Left.

Within minutes after the attempted assassination of Giffords – indeed, at a point when it was still erroneously reported in many news sources that the Congresswoman was dead, and the identity of her shooter was not publicly known – many Liberal commentators were already pointing a bloody finger at the Right.

Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times political hack, Paul Krugman blogged Saturday: “We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was.” Once again, further proof that it only takes a belly full of Radical Leftist bile to receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, a mentally deranged partisan Democrat in his own right, was among the first to jump on the media band wagon. Dupnik argued that the “vitriol” of the country’s harshly polarized political climate was to blame for the shootings, arguing that unbalanced individuals are uniquely “susceptible” to vitriol.

Of course, “unbalanced” implies Tea Party activists, Conservatives and anyone else who doesn’t see Barack Obama as Christ incarnate. Dupnik further added, in an interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly: “We see one party trying to block the attempts of another party to make this a better country.” If Sheriff Dupnik had his way there would only be one party running this nation. How is that for unbalanced.

When asked by Kelly if he had any evidence Loughner was in any way influenced by political “vitriol,” Dupnik offered none. “That’s my opinion, period,” he said.

It’s hard to tell who is more unbalanced, Sheriff Dupnik or the lunatic who went on a psychotic killing spree. Perhaps this tottering old Democrat hack is feeling the pangs of guilt because he wasn’t able to weed out Pima County resident, Jared Lee Loughner, before he went on his shooting spree. Loughner apparently had an obsession with Congresswoman Giffords dating back to 2007. In fact, Loughner’s mental problems and sociopathic outbursts were well documented in the community. Maybe if Sheriff Dupnik had paid more attention to doing his job and less attention to partisan political politics the events at the Tucson Safeway may have turned out differently.

Krugman’s hate inspired blog on Saturday linked “the rhetoric of Beck, Limbaugh, etc.” to “the violence I fear we’re going to see in the months and years ahead,” and added: “Violent acts are what happen when you create a climate of hate.” But in reading the lunatic ravings that Loughner posted on the Internet, the college drop out and Mark David Chapman wannabe made not a single reference to talk-radio, Sarah Palin, Fox News or anything else that Krugman ranted on about.

Of course, when did facts ever stand in the way of Liberals and their agenda of lies, hate and hypocrisy?

Speaking of hypocrisy, Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J., found conservative lawmakers and Fox News at fault. The eight-term lawmaker told the Bergen Record Saturday: “There’s an aura of hate, and elected politicians feed it; certain people on Fox News feed it.” As opposed to the aura of hate that is emitted from Keith ‘Mad Dog’ Obermann, Rachel Maddow, MSNBC, CNN and all three major networks?

Aura of hate, indeed.

Rep. Bill Pascrell certainly has a great deal of inside knowledge of Fox News, having appeared as a guest on Fox News at least 159 times dating from a January 2002 appearance on “The O'Reilly Factor” (“Honor to talk to you,” Pascrell told host Bill O'Reilly, at the end of their segment) to an appearance last month on “Your World with Neil Cavuto” – 38 days before the Tucson massacre. “The nation needs to be united right now,” Pascrell told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” last Jan. 28, nearly a year before he blamed the network and GOP politicians for the attempted assassination of Giffords. “We don’t do the nation any good by simply dividing amongst ourselves.


Sen. ‘Dirty’ Dick Durbin of Illinois, the number-two Socialist…uh, Democrat in the United States Senate, invoked the "don’t retreat, reload,” a phrase from a well publicized Twitter message sent by Sarah Palin during the last election cycle, as the kind of “violent” sentiment that can provoke incidents like Saturday’s. “These sorts of things, I think, invite the kind of toxic rhetoric that can lead unstable people to believe this is an acceptable response,” Durbin said on CNN’s “State on the Union” program.

Durbin is certainly an expert on toxic rhetoric, having provided several sewage plants worth in his time in the Senate.

Juan Williams, the liberal Fox News analyst, said Sheriff Dupnik “speaks for a lot of people” who would like to see the tenor of the American political debate dialed down a notch. “People realize that in the era of Obama, a lot of highly charged vilification of the president has been going on, particularly during the health-care debate,” Williams said. “So people are alert for anything that could possibly be tied to the highly polarized political environment.”

Williams recalled the “bump” in public opinion polls Clinton received when, in the wake of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, Clinton took advantage of the deaths of innocent children, women and men to launch a diatribe against his New Media opponents, most notably Rush Limbaugh. Williams, to his credit, cautioned Democrats to avoid using similar smear tactics this time.

“Some on the left are taking cheap shots,” Williams said, “to try to keep Republicans on the defensive. In all honesty, I don’t see any direct connection between any Republican group and this shooter … who is a psycho nut-job.”

Peter Wehner, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, called the comments by Krugman, Durbin, and other liberals “sickening."

"People were taking a terrible human tragedy and using it as a political club, and there wasn’t even a moratorium of 24 hours, or even 24 minutes,” said Wehner.

Wehner went on to say it would have been “legitimate” if the Tucson massacre had provoked a dialogue about gun control, because conservatives often seize on terrorist incidents to frame national security debates. But he also saw a double standard at work. “When (former Rep. Alan) Grayson called his opponent ‘Taliban Dan’ (during Grayson’s losing re-election campaign last year against GOP challenger Daniel Webster),” Wehner said, “I didn’t notice the left being concerned about an atmosphere of violence.”

Wehner’s observations are right on target, so to speak.

Krugman, Pascrell, Durbin, Pelosi, Obama and their trained circus monkey, Sheriff Durnik of Pima County, all worship at the same altar of radical Progressive fascism that celebrated the 2006 movie, Death of a President, which dramatized, with apparent glee the assassination of President George W. Bush.

Vincent Bugliosi, of Manson Family fame, can write a medium sized box of toilet paper disguised as a book, which he so fairly titles, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, and he gets a gold plated invitation to appear before a Congressional subcommittee to further promote his mental illness of Liberalism.

This is the same group of haters that called for the separation of the motives of the Fort Hood mass murderer, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, from his Radical Muslim Imam. I guess when he was screaming “Allah Akbar!”, while murdering innocent American soldiers, he was just expressing his ACLU protected right to practice his cultural beliefs.

Let us not forget The Huffington Post, which is just another in a series of Progressive propaganda platforms backed by foreign money. I guess if it keeps Arianna off the streets at night it’s a good thing, eh?

As always with the Progressive New World Order fascists, the only side of the debate that matters is the side they can manipulate into their own toxic stew of hate, mental derangement and anti-Americanism.

The Radical Liberal Left will happily sacrifice America and Her freedoms to advance their agenda, as they merrily skip down the blood stained road to the Land of Oz, where Karl Marx is their god behind the curtain. While chugging down a vodka laced Red Bull in one hand and keeping a lit medicinal bong in their other hand, the hypocritically, maniacal Left will happily throw the mangled and broken bodies of American citizens under the mass media bus.

Any sacrifice is worth the advancement of their Socialist agenda. No innocent victim is too large or too small not to be trivialized by Leftist political sophistry and a sixty second sound bite. In the end the only gunfire that matters is the gunfire fired from the left handed guns.
