Similarity between Shooter and Tea Party

"...The Tea Party has often been called radical for their loud demonstrations, and holding their elected politicians feet to the fire. But are they anything like Jared Loughner, a liberal, who shot his own Congresswoman in the head for voting against Nancy Pelosi?..."

"...Jared Loughner and people like him are radicals; Sarah Palin, Ron Paul and others in the Tea Party movement clearly are not. Trying to put them in the same barrel is the job of the mainstream media, not intelligent liberals and conservatives..."

It gets better

They assigned him the same lawyer that defended Timothy McVeigh.

The Abuse of Greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power. - Shakespeare

Don't always agree with Rush Limbaugh but,

he noted that Loughner has been obsessed with the congresswoman since 2007 long before the Tea Party was a going concern.
Blaming the Tea Party which has no history of violence is just dishonest.

Was his interest in her other

than political? Kinda like a crush?

The shooter also

had views sort of similar to grammar Nazis. Stupid grammar Nazis going around shooting people.

Defend Liberty!

Wait, this happened outside a

Wait, this happened outside a Safeway... what is the connection between going to the Safeway and a council meeting or whatever?

I think one should choose their words wisely....

"Sarah Palin clearly is not"

Oh I think that issue can be debated all the way down to Sunday....

Palin inflames a lot of hatred on both sides with her rhetoric.

Palin in many ways is a neo-liberal.....Just like Ayers, John Kerry and even Little Boy Loughner.

Sometimes I wish Palin would shut up entirely due to how bad her rhetoric gets...

The good Dr has never given approval for Palin's witch hunts.

Sure, eventually she could be won over. But she and radicals like Keith Olbermann are no friend to liberty until they renounce their obvious agendas of hate...

Yeah They Should Shoudn't They...


“…(Emanuel) is a good old-fashioned Chicago thug just like Obama is a good old-fashioned Chicago thug. On the night of the Clinton election Rahm Emanuel was so angry at the president’s enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, Rahm Emanuel grabbed a steak knife, and he began rattling off a list of betrayers. And as he listed their names he shouted, ‘Dead! Dead! Dead!’ and he plunged the steak knife into the table after every name. This is not a bunch of people that are going to govern from the center.”

Yes but there is a difference

between saying things harshly and going on a killing rampage.

She said put targets on his seat...

...There's no way anyone would defend something that foolish.

Even if it was a joke it was way out of line given the recent shootings we've seen in the street..

on his seat

targets on his seat. If she wanted them dead, the targets would be on their homes. She wasn't speaking about anything other than mobilizing a political campaign, not a militia. She's speaking in analogy and people do it all the time. Her analogy went a bit outside the vernacular, but it was still analogy.

Their was a conversation on ronpaulforums.com that talked heavily of causing a blip on the RP2008 donations graph. It was heavily laced with talk of retaliation for media statements, strafing runs, attacking, blasts. It ultimatey resulted in an addition to the vernacular, "money bomb". It was an analogy for making a big impact from many small contributions. Was Glenn Beck not wrong for linking the term "money bomb" to some kind of terroristic implication?

Defend Liberty!

That's not what the rifle target sights looked like....

When you display rifle targets on TV, no matter what, everyone gets the impression of shooting.

It did look a little too outside the usual analogies

It just wasn't a call to arms. It was a call to mobilize a campaign.

Defend Liberty!

Being said at a....

Annual Gun fundraiser didn't help either, at that.

And Rahm Emanuel is just as bad...Only he said put a "stake knife" in all of them. Like a Chicago hood gone wild he went off cloud nine.

One question

Why was a US Representative meeting with a Federal Judge?

Personal, Constitutional or Criminal?

Free includes debt-free!

I see this as a Constitutional issue.


He was just leaveing mass and stopped by to see his friend. It has been answered and reported repeatedly. Are you implying that there was some evil or underlying reason for their "meeting" ?

same game as the OK city bombing

where conservative talk radio was blamed for inciting Tim McVey to commiting. This may well be a planned event to silence the opposition to big government.

Second Man?

FYI here is the cached version of BoyBlue's message:

Police looking for 2nd man:

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

RawStory is trying damned hard to tie us to the shooting

Paid lackies are trying to keep the commentary framed around conservatives being the guilty party, they are moving away from the Palin argument. There is sarcastic posts there as well, just a heads up.


can't make something

out of nothing.

will be plenty of issues about him getting a gun.

to keep registering and replying and fighting against false information.

and being responsible in our reporting and have facts for our posts.

too many posts are cut and pasts of questionable sources where we need to be dilligent in our efforts.

Good post

Don't just read the commentary on those articles

We need to fight the message.

It seems to me

that nuts can have any number of reasons for their nutdom. I'm sure that some people are going to get annoyed with me on this but there is absolutely no reason to try and toss the FBI or some other alphabet soup org into this sad situation. I don't care what the guy's political rants were or how he parted his hair. Both are irrelevant to the situation. He shot a bunch of people because he was crazy...period.

or on psychotropic pharmaceutical drugs,

many of which include violence as a "side" effect.

Do we know that

Has it come out that he was on medication, it wouldn't surprise me.

Apparently he tried out for the military but wasn't accepted.

I mean that in the nicest way possible.

I'm no Palin fan, but this hurts.


They are tearing up Palins facebook. It bothers me a lot when they make fun of her kids.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!
