Not surprisingly, we got this update today: Judge: Ariz. shooting suspect mentally incompetent. The guy was in no way influenced by Sarah Palin or any right-wing “extremists.” He was a psycho that should have been institutionalized. He loved the anti-Christian Zeitgeist movie.
But do you remember the reactions of the ghouls on the Left? The bodies weren’t even cold but they read from the “we hate and fear Sarah Palin so she must be destroyed” playbook and blamed her. They were completely unrepentant. And ever since they have ignored countless examples of hate and violence from the Left. Such consistency from the love and tolerance crowd! Even when it was obvious that this guy wasn’t conservative, CNN and others still debated the issue as if Palin had some impact.
I wrote this at the time:
Waiting on retraction from false teacher on Giffords shooting . . .
Yeah, I know I’ll be waiting a long time, but technically it could happen. Will false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie retract his attacks on Sarah Palin in light of the facts that the shooter was most decidedly not a TEA partier? See U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords Shot In Arizona; Supporter Of Health Care Reform (UPDATED) for the original ghoulish political opportunism, where the bodies weren’t even cold before the “reverend” used the deaths as a hit piece on Palin.
It turns out that the shooter was a liberal who doesn’t believe Jesus is the only way to salvation. Hey, he’s got the same worldview as Chuck!
P.S. Will Chuck point out how the Daily Kos had a “target” piece on Giffords as well? Of course not, as that wouldn’t fit in with his “we all need to be nicer — but mainly the Republicans” theme.
The shooter was a liberal whose fixation on Giffords appears to pre-date Palin’s arrival on the national scene. Chuck must be so disappointed.
Still waiting . . .
