I regret the casualties of the loner loser who needed to display his madness by killing innocents. But I have had it with the idea that this is all the fault of the Right Wing, talk radio, Sara Palin, or whatever. This is truly disgusting.
For the most part, I do believe that the people who occupy the Left side of the spectrum are decent people who want to help others, but are sadly misinformed and ignorant of what they do. I could just as easily say that the Left is intent on the destruction of my country, ala Cloward-Piven, but I don't. On the other hand, when I listen to Joe Klein, Kieth Olbermann and others on the TV today, their vitriol is simply dripping as they rub their little hands with glee that they have a hammer with which to silence all of their enemies, I am forced to reconsider how malevolent the Left may actually be.
There seems to be a concerted effort to demonize all things not Democrat using this loser, pothead, stoner, madman as the vehicle. Paul Krugman, Ezra Klein and Markos Moulitas display their contempt for facts and logic here. Even a member of Congress as well as Andrew Sullivan are only too quick to take advantage of the situation. And it's not just individuals acting recklessly, the "news" services are jumping on as well.
Of course, when it was Major Hassan who opened fire killing twice as many innocents at Fort Hood, the call was for everyone to not overreact. Or the guy who was the Discovery Channel shooter, he was also given a pass.
Let's face it, this is not an example of the Right making anyone act a certain way. This is a boon for those on the Left to attack and try to silence those who disagree with them. It is wrong, and it is un-American to use these sort of false accusations when you can't win the public with your argument. It is tempting to sink to their level and act like the Islamist bastards and start to make snuff videos of innocent Leftists being beheaded. Apparently, that is "legitimate" violence that must be appeased as opposed to the idea that belief in limited government and fiscal responsibility should ever even be discussed.
As angry as I am with the slander/libel of the leading lights of the Left, I do realize tthat there are some who would deplore the violence without limitation. Lanny Davis is the only one that comes to mind at the moment. It's possible that there may be one or two others. But for the most part, their deliberate use of the tragedy for political purposes is beyond contempt. If they don't denounce these sort of baseless accusations, I will no longer hold their opinion worthy of consideration.
The Olbermanns, Krugmans, and Kos kooks can all just go to Hell until then.
UPDATE: I had forgotten about the Holocaust Memorial shooter and the guy who flew his plane into the IRS office a while ago. And don't forget the murder of two soldiers in Arkansas. All of these were committed by leftists. In order to stop the violence, we need to silence the Left immediately. Anything that they say can and is being used by these deranged lunatics as an excuse to murder people. When, oh when, will the Left finally acknowledge that their hatred is so dangerous?
UPDATE 2. As bad as it has been, now a Democrat group is using the Giffords shooting as a fundraiser. Have they no shame?
