AZ Sheriff Blames "Vitriol" From Palin On Rep. Giffords Shooting - on Geraldo (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | January 9, 2011 | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 01/09/2011 7:37:05 PM PST by i88schwartz

Sheriff Dupnik continues to politicize the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords and the death of several aides and bystanders.

"When you have people like Sharron Angle in Las Vegas running against [Harry] Reid making outrageous statements such as we may need to resort to taking the second amendment in certain cases, for people like Sarah Palin to say we have people like Gabby Giffords in our crosshairs, they are irresponsible not without consequences and we be seeing the fruit of it here," Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said on FOX News.

I would bet serious money that this snit has been talked to by Obama.

This is unforgivable.

The left is totally unhinged. There can be no common ground.

Geraldo makes me sick. He presents the senile ramblings of a 74-yr old RAT sheriff as fact. It’s time for FOX to get rid of this tabloid RAT sleazebag.

It's one of the most irresponsible things I've ever seen in the face of tragedy. This makes the Welstone memorial look like Tea and crumpets.

I can't believe the Left hasn't back peddle all the way to their snake hole on this one. It's a marvel to watch albeit sickening at the same time.

Ok Mr. Sheriff - show me just where Sarah Palin has ever used the words Gabby Giffords and “crosshairs” in the same sentence. Then tell me what steps you took when you found out that the perp had made death threats to others prior to this event and we will talk about who had more culpability in this matter.

I saw the interview and he once again misquoted what Sharron Angle said about the 2nd amendment. He is so intent on promoting his belief, truth is out the window. Sheriff’s position must be partisan elections in Arizona.

This has become the new norm for the Left: double-down when you're caught in The Big Lie.

It's not as stupid as it seems, if you allow yourself to consider what is, for many of us, unthinkable: that the Left is already fighting CWII; they are speaking not to the country as a whole, but to their forces in the field. Their strategy is divisive, and is meant to be divisive... they don't care that half the country (maybe even more than half) is incensed by their lies, because they reckon they can roll over that half by treachery: changing the demographics of our nation, making common cause with our foreign enemies, undermining our Constitution, and taking away our rights to free speech, freedom of worship, and freedom of commerce.

That's the message sent to me by the "double-down" strategy we've seen so much of in recent years, from the President, from Reid and Pelosi, from the Attorney General and other Cabinet secretaries, and from academics like those behind global warming.

Sheriff Dupnik continues to politicize the shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords and the death of several aides and bystanders.....and should be immediately removed from office by the governor.

Something is going to give on this one. Bet on it. They’re pushing way, way too hard when it was one of THEIR OWN that did this. On another thread someone is saying Castro is speaking out and possibly that little fat ass from North Korea.
They’re coming way too hard, way to fast. It’s going to be an interesting week.

My email to the Sheriff

Actual Topic: Sheriff’s News Conference Yesterday

Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik

I think people such as yourself need to remember when you are so intent on blaming what voters have said as the cause for this tragedy, why not mention the rhetoric from Democrat politicians and liberal talking heads including:

President Obama:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

And “I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”

Or John Kerry who said on the Bill Maher show: “I could have gone to 1600 Pennsylvania and killed the real bird with one stone.”

Or Howard Dean “I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for…”

and: “This is a struggle between good and evil and we’re the good?”

and “we need to remember that the enemy here is George Bush, not each other.”

Or Senator Chuck Schumer who called a flight attendant a “bitch.”

Or the Florida Democrats who ran an ad calling for the assassination of Donald Rumsfeld

Or New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi who called for Senator Schumer to “put a bullet between the president’s eyes?”

Or Jonathan Chait who said “I hate President George W. Bush.”

Or singer Rickie Lee Jones who aid of President Bush “You’re an ignorant, low-class, opportunistic man, both personally and politically, who does everything for political gain and nothing for the wellbeing of the people, and you should not be in office, and the kind of fascism you’re perpetrating on our country we don’t want, and you’re out. We’re done with you. Ffffhgggmm.”

And when asked if she would be willing to take Bush out for the benefit of democracy? “If I say that, I might get arrested when I go back. And I have to go home.” She’s thinking it out carefully. “I guess the question is, would I kill anyone? And the answer is, no. But would I feel sorry if someone killed him? No, I wouldn’t. It would depend on who killed him, I guess.”

Or “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn” where they superimposed the words “Snipers Wanted” over an image of Bush delivering his acceptance speech at the Republican convention.

Or Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams who said she could kill President Bush?

Or Randi Rhodes who joked about killing the President?

Or Reverend Wright who called Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, Condoskeeza [sic] Rice.

Or England’s Charlie Brooker who wrote: “On November 2, the entire civilised world will be praying, praying Bush loses. And Sod’s law dictates he’ll probably win, thereby disproving the existence of God once and for all. The world will endure four more years of idiocy, arrogance and unwarranted bloodshed, with no benevolent deity to watch over and save us. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr – where are you now that we need you?”

How about three five-minute rounds?

Sheriff Joe would be stuffing Sheriff Dipchit’s head up his considerable lily white butt. You know those two have met and their opinions of each other would be worth the price of a cage match.

Maybe Dana White of UFC will sign them up, I’d pay $25 to see that.

I concur, they have already “begun the fight”. In good Tsun Tzu fashion they are trying to “take everything they can” before the violence actually begins. I will give them this, they have good generals.

I'm not gonna watch the video cause I can't stand Whoraldo and have already seen too much of dipsh*t Dupnik on TV already. This guy is one of those gun grabber types that would like to see the “assault weapons” ban reenacted. Blame the gun and blame those on the opposite side of the political isle. He's such a hypocrite that he probably doesn't realize he's doing the very thing that he accuses others of doing.
