The aftermath of this act will be felt for sometime to come. It is the end of perhaps two eras here in the United States.
In America, though we might have differences, there were always certain things we could agree on. Conservatives and liberals could discuss and debate issues. That era is gone and the aftermath of today’s shooting is the official obituary for political civility in this country.
Although there was no proof the shooter was involved in conservative politics or the Tea Party, the left went nuts. Immediately after the shooting, the left went after the Tea Party. The Daily Kos went on a rant. On the Hill.com, one of the comments in the story about the shooting was from someone called “AC.” He said:
The Tucson Tea Party will be made to pay for the blood on their hands. An eye for an eye. You want a civil war, you got one. KILL Jesse Kelly for his role, then KILL Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Gleen Beck(sic). Whoever puts BULLETS in ther HEADS shall be a NATIONAL HERO.
On twitter, leftists were going after Sarah Palin in particular. Tweeters castigated Palin because during the election, she had put cross hairs on Giffords’ district, which was closely fought. They were then upset that her Webmaster took the image down. At Tea Party Nation, we were on the receiving end of some of this vitriol from the left.
Someone named “Kathlovestennis” tweeted: @teapartynation Your Hitmap, your hatred, your racism, your anti-semitism, your homophobia have created this hateful act. #repgiffords
Paul Krugman, who is generally an idiot, lived up to his reputation by trying to tie the Tea Party into an incident that has nothing to do with politics.
Traitor to America, Jane Fonda had to add her twitter to the list, blaming both Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck for the shooting, as well as the Tea Party. Why isn’t she in prison for what she did to American POW’s in Vietnam?
The left has simply gone too far. There can be no civil discourse with people as crazy as those on the left are. What that says for the future of this country is tragic.
The second era that may have ended today is the era of easy access to our leaders. America has had a tradition of easy and open access to our leaders. Indeed, Congressman Giffords was at a meeting she called “Congress on the corner” when she was shot. With the exception of the Speaker of the House, neither Congressmen nor Senators have Secret Service protection. They will frequently come to events and meet the public with zero security. That has been the beauty of America. That also may have died today.
Every Senator and Congressman is now reevaluating their personal security, as they all should. The easy contact Americans have enjoyed with their representatives may be a thing of the past. In the future, town hall meetings maybe held in secured locations, such as Federal buildings or over the Internet. Even the political events they attend may become subject to the same strict security we see when the President is speaking.
For today, we can say a prayer for those who lived through the shooting in Arizona, those who did not and their families and for America. Thanks to the hard left, America can now say goodbye to any type of political civility.
UPDATE: In a shocking development, people who knew the shooter are saying he was a ..... liberal.
It wouldn't hurt or politicians to have 2 or 3 well trained body guards nearby. Any Secret Service agent would have picked out this loon in a second.
We've had these incidents happen before, and with time, things return to normal. We will always have the nuts out there, we just have to be on our guard.
SECOND MAIN REASONS:
REMEMBER WHAT AND WHERE DID OBAMA WENT TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERISTY ?.
OBAMA WENT TO FIRST COLLEGE WAS "OCCIENDTAIL COLLEGE AND UNIV. HARVARD" (OBAMA SAID HE WENT TO COLUMBIA UNIV. BUT LIED TO PROTECT WELL KNOWN UNIV. HARVARD'S NAME AND OBAMA'S RECORDS ISN'T IN COLUMBIA UNIV. ! )
REMEMBER BOTH OCCIENDTAL COLLEGE AND HARVARD UNIV HAS RECORED FOR COMMUNIST INFLUENCED TO MANY AMERICANS AND OTHER COUNTRIES STUDENTS ! THOSE TWO UNIV. AND COLLEGE STILL CARRYING "BOOKS OF MARXISMS" AND TRAINED STUDENTS. MARXISMS NOW WEL KNOWN AS "COMMUNISTS AND SOCIALISMS" AT BOTH COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY !.
Michael, good to have your comments. And you are absolutely right! The government corruption has made a mockery of what our wise founding fathers wanted and hoped for throughout their arduous task of composing the foundation for our country's governance. With much prayer and heated debate they came together for the good of this nation, based on the premise that our Creator made us in his image and likeness. That responsibiliy weighed heavily upon them before the pen met parchment in our Constitution.
Why our leaders have discarded the deepest truth of our credo is both puzzling and sad. Eliminating God is the biggest mistake any society can make. Needing Him is not "anthema" to our beliefs. On the contrary, separation of church and state was intended for the freedom to worship God freely, unlike the corruption they fled from in Europe,where men had deemed themselves beyond the need for such a "crutch" as dependence upon their Creator.
That's why I love this place of reason, where many gather under the mantel of Deism to seek the common ground of intent for the good of our nation.
To you, Michael, I extend an echo of your wishes for us--peace, joy,love.
fortunateson, I believe in the true definition of Deism. Deo is a latin word. it means "God"
Adding "ism" to a word is defined as , "belief in".
I am sure you realize that my intent was the truest, most literal sense of the word.
Bless you, brother, and thanks for the verses you shared. More proof that God is not a sissy, nor does He yearn for us to be. Cowards use violence to achieve their ends. Heroes stand firm in truth against violence, being examples through refusal to depart from truth....and we do not hate or fear truth here!!! I think He's raising up His army of brave truthers before my eyes!!
For the Liberal Leftest Press to have chosen to "run"with this story assuming it was a right winger influenced by the Tea Party movement - this has to be extremely embarrassing to know everyone is seeing and reading this idiot's own words. He doesn't even mention the Tea Party. In fact - he's all about feeling betrayed in having discovered that politicians lie, cheat,
and betray. This shooting is about betrayal by a Liberal politician and a Liberal supporter. (In his perception,anyway). This time he wanted suicide by police and would induce it by a senseless act of anger and hatred towards the Congresswoman. In the process, he killed several others and gravely wounded her - and was arrested and not shot and killed by police.
The Liberal Left's attempts to tie anyone it dislikes, no matter how wrong they were to jump to conclusions - can only be seen as more of the same insane anger and hatred in this guy. There is no difference.
The Liberal Media, by jumping to conclusions and attacking the TEA PARTY (which is, "We The People"), has made an ugly assult against innocents and doing the same thing this young feller did. They're inciting violence. They don't give a hoot for the truth. They know what they're doing. It's irresponsible and no less dangerous than yelling "Fire" in a crowded theatre. Dan Rather wanted to use his position and reputation and tried to lie about a story and he was fired for it. After reading the excerpts of the shooters own words above - I can't imagine a sane
How sorely desperate the Left is revealing it self to be ..........
I do not care a rats a z z what the so-called left thinks, says or does.
These witless wonders have little to no input, or impact on my life in general.
Wringing hands over their flatulent ramblings is a waste of time
