Amazing Fantasy

If you haven't been paying attention to the narrative the professional Left is pushing on the Tucson shooting, let me recap it for you:

Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Movement's use of inflammatory rhetoric and violent imagery has claimed its first victim. It directly inspired a potheaded, unemployed, occult-dabbling, 9/11 truther, quasi-anarchist, anti-war, parents'-basement-dwelling, likely schizophrenic to shoot a Blue Dog Democrat who recently deserted Nancy Pelosi to vote for someone else for Speaker.

Now, you might have thought that it would have been far more likely for the first shooter to be some redneck asshole, who would have taken a shot at Barney Frank, or Charlie Rangel, or Nancy Pelosi, but you'd be wrong.

And if you thought that the shooter's ramblings would be obsessed with patriotism and taking his country back and saving us from the socialists, you'd be wrong. No, the pawn of Palin and the Tea Party would instead rant about how much he despised "stupid" and "ignorant" and "illiterate" people when explaining why he did what he did... which sounds a hell of a lot like how the enemies of Palin and the Tea Party talk about them, but that's just proof of how devious the whole thing is.

That is the Truth, according to professional left. Please don't be so rude as to contradict them with reality. They've put a lot of time and effort into constructing their version of events, and why should we ruin their hard work?

Because it will cause their panties to get all bunched up and generally cause them to have the vapors when the facts of the matter are tossed in their face.

WildWillie:

I even think Obama knows there is absolutely NO political hay. I hope he doesn't even mention the stupid rumor the incompetent sheriff put forward. But, if he does, he loses the audience. Even if to say "We don't know if this person was driven to act out by the rhetoric that is floating on the airwaves". That will end him for sure in 2012. ww

I expect that barry will give a speech that gives lip service to the grief of the families of the victims and then takes an ill disguised and ill mannered cheap shot at the right. Just like with the tax bill compromise he will reluctantly say what is expected in the situation but be unable to contain the hate and rancor within himself.

Proof of Jay's accuracy in recounting the left's spin on the shooter:

The Wrath of Fools: An Open Letter to the Far Right

William Rivers Pitt is the boob who infamously predicted that Karl Rove was going to be indicted. He also laughably altered his prediction from "within 24 hours" to "within 24 business hours" when (1) he realized he foolishly made his prediction on a Friday and (2) the prediction didn't come true at any point the beginning of the following week.

GarandFan:

Personally I don't think that clown would know a Democrat or Republican if he fell over them. He, like Nancy Pelosi, lives in an alternate universe.

I think it obvious that he fixated on Rep. Giffords - and the only thing really "tying" him to her (that we know of) was what he perceived as a 'slight' -according to a friend - back in 2007; when she didn't answer a nonsensical question he submitted to her in writing at a congressional district meet and greet.

As to what finally set him off? Who knows. And if he held a grudge against Giffords, why did he shoot those other people? What did they do that 'pissed him off'?

Lots of questions, few answers.

astigafa:

So I'm waiting to be told, What does this have to do with Voldemort (since somebody has taken the [purely] dramatic step of not saying Loughner's name aloud)? Didn't he cite Marx on a reading list?

The point is this: Your rhetoric is violent. Sooner or later, you'll be pushing this pro-gun, anti-government rhetoric -- and PLEASE don't tell me you don't -- some genuine dingbat nutjub like Loughner is going to hear that and say, "Yeah, let's kill 'em all."

Reason says I'm right; experience tells me you're all out in the Republican echo chamber waiting to be told what to say to this sort of rational approach.

And good luck. No, really. Because there is no answer.

Asti, if you're going to play the cut and paste game (including taking one of my finer pieces seriously out of context -- here's the full context), here's another quote for ya:

"Silence! I kill you!"

My non-usage of the guy's name goes back years. I did the same thing on the VA Tech shooting and the Colorado church shootings. These assholes do these things for fame and attention, and I won't participate in giving it to them.

And if you're so eager to limit other people's speech, please lead by example... and feel free to shut the fuck up.

You're inciting a hell of a lot people here, asti. Perhaps I, as the responsible editor that I am, should silence your hateful, provocative remarks before you "inspire" someone to violence.

Jinx, it wasn't Pitt who kept telling us about the double-secret indictment of Rove, but Jason Leopold. But I owe you big time.

I had a piece half-written, went and read your link, and you COMPLETELY derailed that piece and set me off in a whole 'nother direction. I'm not sure if I should thank you, or be annoyed...

J.
