Sarah Palin, Gun Fetishism

  2. Yeah how are those Second Amendment remedies workin for ya?

  3. A law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that the handgun used in a shooting that killed a federal judge and wounded a U.S. congresswoman in Tucson, Ariz., was purchased legally.

    The Washington Post reported late Saturday that Loughner purchased the gun Nov. 30 from the Sportsman's Warehouse in Tucson.

    The problem is not the gun but the subliminal suggestion by Palin's PAC that people who the public health care option be targeted.

    As a second amendment supporter, the idiot could as just as well drove a big ass gas guzzling SUZ into the crowd and then come out swinging an ax.

    I am sure that the shooting will all but end Palin's run for the WH in 2012.

  4. Steven Hart has a good post about this.

    "There’s going to be a great rush to quarantine the alleged shooter as a loner, a weirdo whose Internet rambling in no way link him to the little tinpot warriors of wingerdom. It’s going on right now, in fact. And it’s garbage. There have been other gun-crazed wackos who get their news and opinion from Glenn Beck and all the other bottom-feeders. This Arizona shooting is just the latest example of what happens when a political party and its attendant propaganda channels make crazy into their lingua franca."

  5. Except that post seems to ignore the indications that the alleged killer was a left-wing nutcase instead of a right wing nutcase.

    Why are liberals so violent?

  6. The chicken of left-wing terrorism has come home to roost.

  7. Steven Hart's dumbfuckery:

    So, I guess we can’t use the term “teabaggers” anymore. It’s no longer appropriate. They’re bodybaggers.

    Ah, the irony. Condemning venomous rhetoric, by spewing venomous rhetoric at those on whom he blames the venomous rhetoric. I'll bet the stupid piece of shit doesn't even see the hypocrisy.

  8. The by far most important thing here is to be sure to shine the spotlight on those who would exploit this atrocity to attack the Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms, and treat them as the traitors and mortal enemies of this nation that they are.

    Hold them to account, along with any who try to protect them from the consequences of their treason.

  9. By the way, when are we going to hear you blame the Daily Kos, for putting Giiffords on their "target list" (their term), for being a "Blue Dog"?

    Well, I'd argue that we can narrow the target list by looking at those Democrats who sold out the Constitution last week. I've bolded members of the Blue Dogs for added emphasis.

    Giffords, it should be noted, is one of the "bolded" names. Don't wanna talk about that, do ya'?

  10. FWM, Thanks for removing your first comment. I saw it in the e-mail.

    Zorro, you're working hard to spin this your way. That's a pretty good link showing the the King Liberals over at Daily Kos used the word "target."

    I think that's a bit different than putting cross hairs over someone's name or picture, something you know about as I recall.

    It's also a lot different than the words used by O'Reilly about the abortion doctor and the words used by Beck about the Tides foundation. These were unequivocal instructions to do violence, at least in the minds of the sick and deranged gun owners you like to defend so much.

  11. People who like to claim that Blue Dog Democrats have sold out the Constitution really need to get a clue. George W Bush and all his abuses of power while in office were classic examples of how politicians fail to uphold the Constitution they are supposed to uphold.
    Besides the amount of money corrupting the American political process, the National Security Act of 1947 and the creation of the CIA as well as the NSA have done more to undermine the US Constitution. Both political parties because of their willingness to sell out for money from defense corporations and other elements of the MICC have undermined the US Constitution.
    The NSA of 1947 has allowed the executive branch to become more powerful over the last 60 years and the never ending wars the US finds itself in are a direct result of this. The wars in Vietnam and Iraq are a result of an Imperial Presidency and the failure of the Congress to perform their constitutional authority to declare war. The shooting in Arizona can be looked at by anti-imperial political scholars as another consequence of militarism in America.

  12. Oh, also, do any of you "Blame Palin" geniuses care to respond to this? Where were you then O, Masters of Pious Sanctimony?

  13. All right, Zorro, let's see if I understand your point. Looking around the internet these days, the number of "Palin blamers," is what, in the hundreds? Among them are many legitimate and respected personalities of politics and journalism. You're comparing that outpouring to the images you linked to?

    I'm starting to think that my denying you the use of that nickname you gave me is acting like kryptonite upon you. You're just not the same lately.
