I am rubbing my eyes in disbelief at the attempt to blame the Tea-Partiers and ‘the right’ for the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six others in Arizona by a mentally disturbed individual, Jared Lee Loughner. Even more outrageously, America’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has effectively equated this mentally deranged loner with the Islamists who committed the 9/11 atrocities:
In a television broadcast filmed before students in Abu Dhabi, Mrs Clinton was asked why the 9/11 terror attacks, the work of a handful of men, had been allowed to colour American views of a whole people. ‘We have extremists in our country,’ she said. ‘A wonderful and incredibly brave young woman congress member was just shot by extremists in our country. We have the same kinds of problems, so rather than standing off of each other we should work to try and prevent the extremists wherever they are from being able to commit violence.’
vast right-wing conspiracy
fruits of extremism
Inflammatory rhetoric draws real blood;
a mean spirit
left wing and quite liberal,
... is now dead to me!
The Daily Kos put a bulls-eye on the back of Congresswoman Giffords and other Blue Dog democrats in a story on June 25, 2008 asking, ‘Who [sic] to primary? Well, I'd argue that we can narrow the target list by looking at those Democrats who sold outthe Constitution last week. I've bolded members of the Blue Dogs for added emphasis.’ Congresswoman Giffords’ name was among those bolded. The author goes on to state that ‘Not all of these people will get or even deserve primaries, but this vote certainly puts a bulls eye on their district.’
