Tucson Shooting Hypocrisy

More hypocrisy out there regarding the horrific shootings at Tucson, Ariz.

- MoveOn launches campaign against vitriolic language, despite its history of using vitriolic language

- Media pivots to blame gun laws; as a result sloppy reporting ensues

- By far, the ugliest rhetoric is coming from the institutional Left

- What will become of Salon's "War Room" blog?

- Media orgy misses what is important

- So there are people out there who really believe the Tea Party folks talk to this guy through an implant in his head or something?

- Blood libel from the Left that is being ignored (and was back then too) this week

- Sheriff who blames talk radio, conservatives for Tucson shooting, was asked by the Left to apologize for remarks about illegal aliens

- The reading of the Constitution made him do it? Nah....

- Oh my, remember my words about "red herring?" Apparently the high sheriff knew a lot about the alleged shooter's problems and threats to officials -- ahead of time. His attempt to mimic that scene from the Wizard of Oz? You know, "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" The intentional "deflection" that he is perpetrating . . . er, eh, ahem, I mean, the things that make you go hmmmm . . . .

- Oops, the media's bad! It wasn't Sarah Palin who pulled the trigger. Nope, it was Wayne LaPierre!

- On a related note, the Brady Campaign LOVES to use "target" symbolism in their advertising and fundraising too. Who is holding Sarah, Paul and company accountable for endorsing such disgusting tactics?

- A former dem congressman pleading for civility once called for a sitting governor to be put against a wall . . . and shot!

A sea of hypocrisy, my friends . . .

Now, another note. A friend with close family connections to Arizona ponders why more people at this event weren't armed, for pretty much everyone in Arizona carries a gun. Or . . . at least they used to. Maybe that sea change in the Tuscon area is why this event went on so long, and so many people were brutally murdered before the alleged shooter was subdued by hand . . .

For it is precisely the events where no one thinks anything will happen that crazy folks, and those bent on accomplishing an agenda, know they can do the most harm -- and get the most notoriety. Ready-made free-fire zones.
