Much of the same nonsense was repeated on the AP report on Yahoo as well. In fact it could have been written by the same person given the tone of it.
On CNN one “Reporter” said that the shooter was said to have been a Army Vet recently returned from Afghanistan but didn’t bother to check the facts to see if the individual actually had served in Afghanistan.
There is absolutely no record of this nutcase ever being in the military. According to Army records he attempted to enlist but was rejected but no reason was given but one can pretty much guess. Loner, living at home in mommy and daddy's downstairs, pot smoking , anti-religious.... As a former recruiter he would not rank high on my list.
Here is an example of the leftist jumping on the bandwagon with unfounded statements: From the AP---"Giffords has drawn the ire of the right in the last year, especially from politicians like Sarah Palin over her support of the health care bill. It's still not clear if the gunman had the health care debate in mind or was focused on his own unique set of political beliefs as witnessed in the Internet videos."
Always leave it to the left to somehow drag Palin or Bush into the topic which neither had anything to do with.
And from the loonier leftist in the comment section of the same AP article posted on Yahoo:
PALINIST KILLS - CHILD & ASTRONAUT'S WIFE CUT DOWN - SARAH OFFERS BRISTOL TO RUSH TO BIRTH MESSIAH
Teabaggers have been very casual with their thinly veiled calls for violence over the past two years. Obama is the anti-Christ, gather your armies, second-amendment remedies, cross-hairs on congressmen… the list is endless. And now that their bellicose rhetoric has blown up in their faces, they stampede to the blogs aghast in righteous indignation, crying “Who, US?”
Our nation’s problem:
People like Palin, Limbaugh, Beck, and the other cretins at FOX do not realize, or choose to ignore (for ratings and monetary reasons), the basic fact that the vast majority (not exclusively, but the VAST majority) of their followers are very weak mentally, and therefore extremely susceptible to violent actions by even the slightest insinuation towards violence, i.e. “Don‘t retreat, reload!”. Initiating violent actions gives these poor creatures a bizarre validation to their lives and a feeling that they are doing the “Right thing”, that they are only carrying out “What Sarah, or Rush, or Bill, or Sean would righteously do if they were only able to act and not be held back by the Socialist laws of this corrupt government.”, or something to that effect. One cannot possibly hope to clearly understand the thought processes of this type of individual, but the solution remains startlingly clear: Silence the Palins and Limbaughs of this world….
I just saw the murderer's video and he's spouting the Glenn Beck line about Big Government and the gold standard; the rumor that he's a liberal is patently false. Palin and all the Tea Partiers who are denouncing this event are hypocrites. Today they have blood on their hands. But I'm sure that will make no difference to any of the Republicans here; they consider hypocrisy and bloodletting a virtue.
You right wing sycophants are so bloody sad and predictable. Also completely full of ox dung. This shooting is purely a product of right wing talk radio propaganda, lack of gun control, and nut jobs like YOU, that buy and regurgitate all of the talking points, then absolve themselves of proper blame when the powder keg finally sets off.
NOW WE KNOW WHAT THE TEA PARTY REALLY STANDS FOR - K I L L I N G
OH, AND GIVE YOURSELVES AN APPLAUSE GLEN BECK, RUSH, FOX NEWS, OREILY, PALIN, REPUKE- LICANS. YOUR HATE IS SPREADING FIERCELY INTO THE COUNTRYSIDE. THIS IS YOUR FINEST MOMENT.........PATHETIC, HYPOCRITE SCUMS.There were a few comments on the Right that belong in the Lonny bin as well:
THE HATE IN THIS COUNTRY IS FROM OBAMA SHOVING NEW SH$T DOWN OUR THROATS FOR TWO YEARS. PAYING FOR THIS SH$T . AND DIDN'T VOTE FOR HIM . THIS IS THE START OF THE BREAKING POINT
Maybe libs will now realize the Tea Party means business.
That was just a very few out of over 23K comments, none of which were cut by Yahoo .
Loony tunes has just begun.
Just wait until the lonny’s in Washington start the posturing and finger pointing in Congress instead of getting on with the Nations business.
I'm waiting for Porky Pig to come on and say.... “Uh... Th ththThhhhat's all folks!!”
It is past time.
Good night Porky where ever you are since being banned for being politically incorrect.
