The Left Exploits A Tragedy In Arizona

By now, most of you know of the horrendous occurrence in Arizona.

One man, possibly with the aid of an accomplice opened fire on a crowd in Tucson, Arizona gathered for a political meeting at a Safeway market with a semi-automatic pistol at close range. He shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, a 40-year-old Democrat in the head, seriously wounding her, and killed six other people including federal judge John Roll, chief judge of the U.S. District Court of Arizona. Also murdered was Gabe Zimmerman, 30, the congresswoman's director of community outreach, and a 9-year-old girl.

The assailant, Jared Lee Loughner, was finally tackled to the ground by two bystanders and arrested.

Even more shocking than this tragedy is the ghoulish way the Left is trying to make political capital out of it.

Because Giffords is a Democrat ( albeit of exactly the conservative,Blue Dog variety the Left loves to despise) they are literally frothing at the mouth blaming Talk Radio, FOX, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and other icons of 'right wing hate' for what happened.

The hypocrisy is astounding. In throwing down against 'hate speech and vitriol in politics' the Left is using exactly that kind of language to go on the attack...sometimes crudely expressed, sometimes with more subtlety.

Alinsky-like, they are willing to cynically use Giffords to demonize their political opponents. Frankly, it's exactly the sort of despicable behavior I would expect of them.

For that matter, Judge Roll was a Bush appointee and a conservative, who was at the event because he and Giffords were friends. Should the Right be blaming the likes of HuffPo, Kos and MSNBC and the language they habitually use for his death?

Giffords is a Jew, and took her Oath of Office on a Torah. Should we be blaming the Muslim world for her being shot because of the constant demonization of Jews that goes on there?

Sadly, the shooter Jared Lee Loughner was, as Arizona authorities are referring to him, a severely disturbed man. Among other things, his YouTube videos featured on of him burning an American flag, hardly a sentiment one would associate with the Right.

He was simply a loose cannon, and such people sometimes commit horrible acts.

The minions of the Left using his violence for their own ends have no such mitigating circumstances.They're fully aware of what they're doing.And reveling in it.

As for Congresswoman Giffords, she's in critical condition but her doctors are cautiously optomistic.

My G-d grant her and the other victims who were wounded a refuah shlemah" (a full recovery).

please helps me write more gooder!

I followed some of your links, and you're right, they are ghoulish. Even on left wing hate sites it's truly hard to believe what they are saying. As far as blaming Palin & Beck, I'm pretty sure most of the libs don't even know what Palin & Beck stand for. It's just knee-jerk reacting.
