Shameless, shameless liberals

Liberals disgust me. The bodies weren't even cold in Tucson before they exploited the opportunity to put the blame on conservatives. Early signs point to the shooter being schizophrenic, but that didn't give the media pause. The talk shows this morning were obsessed with "tone" and "violent rhetoric." The spectacle yesterday of the Pima County sheriff refusing to answer question after question (he didn't know anything), and then giving a big speech about how all the bigotry must stop (he knows everything) was truly disgusting. Shameless, shameless people, these liberals.

If we want to turn this tragedy into a political discussion, let's focus on the naivete of liberalism. Congresswoman Giffords was repeatedly threatened, her office was shot up, and after the attack the sheriff said she could have had security at any time if she wanted it. But the dangerous liberal ideology that people are inherently good led the Congresswoman to continue to have meet-and-greets with absolutely no protection. Tragic misjudgment caused by an unrealistic ideology. I looked in vain on the talk shows today for discussions of liberal naivete.     

Liberals are a real treat. They sneer at anyone so foolish to believe that media (e.g., Hollywood) causes violence, only to turn around to make the exact same argument when the topic is political violence. What a treat.

Inductivist: "But the dangerous liberal ideology that people are inherently good..."

Except for conservatives and Republicans like Sarah Palin, Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh etc...

Jared Loughner lists his favorite books at his youtube site:

"Animal Farm, Brave New World, The Wizard Of OZ, Aesop Fables, The Odyssey, Alice Adventures Into Wonderland, Fahrenheit 451, Peter Pan, To Kill A Mockingbird, We The Living, Phantom Toll Booth, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Pulp,Through The Looking Glass, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha, The Old Man And The Sea, Gulliver's Travels, Mein Kampf, The Republic, and Meno."

It appears that many of the books on this list are the kind that students are assigned to read in school. I myself was assigned to read Animal Farm, Fahrenheit 451, Siddhartha, To Kill A Mockingbird and Alice's Adventures Into Wonderland.

"In conclusion, reading the second United States Constitution, I can't trust the government because of the ramifications: The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar. No! I won't pay debt with a currently that's not back by gold and silver! No! I won't trust in God!"
Jared Loughner: My Final Thoughts

Regarding mind control and brainwashing, it soumds like he is echoing the ideas of Orwell's 1984.

"Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth."
George Orwell

So maybe we should blame public schools and George Orwell for the shooting. Of course, that is ridiculous. But it is no less ridiculous than Olbermann blaming Sarah Palin, Beck and O'Reilly for the shooting.

In his statement yesterday Obama said they would try to find out what "provoked" the shooting, as if the shooter was caused to do what he did by somebody else. Idiot.

Anger Misdirection.


The Left has been performing Anger Misdirection techniques for years.

In fact, you can see Democratic Strategist Mark Penn state that President Obama needs a "Oklahoma City-like event" to reconnect with voters on Hardball NBC with Chris Mathews on video here:

That vid should leave no doubt in your mind about a stragegist like Penn. He is hoping that there will be an violent event attributable to a right winger so the left can use it as propaganda, and to go back on the offensive after the elections.


Everything is political with these people. Paul Wellstone's funeral was political with them back in the 1990's.

I, too, am disgusted by the fact that the left has completely shrugged off the real tragedy and looked at it as an opportunity to attack the right.
