Gabrielle Giffords' father: 'The whole Tea Party were her enemies' (Yet the shooter was a Lefty)
The London Telegraph ^ | January 8, 2011

The father of shot American congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has said that her political stance made her many enemies.

Miss Giffords, a Democrat congresswoman, was shot in the head during a public meeting in Tucson, Arizona.

A lone gunman, described by witnesses as being a white man in his late teens or early twenties, fired into a crowd gathered for a "Congress in your Corner" event outside a supermarket.

Her father Spencer Giffords, 75, wept when asked if his 40-year-old daughter had any enemies.

"Yeah," he told The New York Post. "The whole tea party."

Miss Giffords had been named in March as a political campaign target for conservatives in November’s elections by former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for her strong support for the health reforms of President Barack Obama.....

"...sounds like he is nothing but a snot nosed wanna-be anarchist. Little bastard"

Yeah. That's my assessment of the shooter as well, thus far.

Bush’s fault? No after the crap I’ve read all over the place today I’m pretty sure the “somebody has to be blamed for this” baton has officially passed to Palin.

According to Jared Lee Loughner's Youtube channel (LINK):

"favorite books: ...The Communist Manifesto... Mein Kampf..."

His video "Introduction: Jared Loughner" on Youtube states:

"... a terrorist is a person who employs terror on terrorism, especially as a political weapon." but "Calling someone a terrorist is "Ad hominem".

"The government is implying {sic} mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar."

"No! I won't trust in God!"... and uses the "B.C.E." & "A.D.E" instead of the Christian "B.C." & "A.D.E"

Weak case for the sort of patriotic American rightwing Christian profiled by Napolitano & company as a terrorist.

Fine. I guess the next step is to round up all TEA Party members and interrogate them.

It’s Bushs’ fault.

I don't believe the suspect is an illegal alien.

THEY are the loonies. We are just trying to stay alive!

Gay athiest anarchist who loves the Communist Manifesto commits shooting atrocity.

If the left only knew how stupid they're going to look when they end up covered with the very poo they're flinging, they'd gladly glom onto the insanity defense and quietly bury this story as fast as they could.

Ever since JFK was assassinated (by Lee Harvey Oswald, an avowed communist) the left has successfully lied to the American people and claimed that ‘right-wingers’ are crazed assassins and will kill you if you disagree with liberal political positions.

Obama’s best bud and the leading leftist for (Re)education William “the bomber” Ayers made a dedication to Sirhan Sirhan (assassin of the leftists idol Bobby Kenedy) among other killers in one of his books, I believe it was “Prairie Fire”.

The nutcase took it upon himself to be a political enforcer for the Hard Left, so, no conspiracy theories. Yet this incident will be twisted by extreme pretzel logic. “Anyone who disagrees with the Hard Left is deranged and violent.” (Please note the quotes, it’s what I expect from Minneapolis Moonbats). Also any military veteran will be stigmatized by the Hard Left, never mind that this kook is very unlikely a veteran.
The Kos site has some very sick twisted people, if anyone remembers one KodKid who signed on to FreeRepublic, posted links to kiddie porn on FR his home page, and bragged about it on his own Kos page.
This is the deranged Hard Left we are dealing with.

The MSM does many horrible things in "doing their job," but few as despicable as exploiting a father's grief hours after his daughter has been shot and grievously wounded.

Certainly exploiting a father's distraught statement for political capital is mind-boggling.
