Clyburn blames conservative rhetoric for Giffords shooting (Rat blames Sharron Angle, Tea Party)
McClatchy ^ | 2011-01-09 | James Rosen

Posted on 01/09/2011 9:13:22 PM PST by rabscuttle385

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Jim Clyburn on Sunday said Sharron Angle's endorsement of "Second Amendment remedies" in her losing Nevada campaign against Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid contributed to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Clyburn, the House assistant Democratic leader, said of Giffords' alleged assailant, Jared Lee Loughner: "It seems like this gentleman was not satisfied with the way the election came out. "There's no way you cannot make that connection (with Angle's rhetoric) unless you want to be stupid."

There they go with that middle name thing again. Do ALL assassins get special middle name privileges?

(Sorry, I’m just so disgusted with the MSM, Lib, Commie rhetoric that I’m getting snarky)

Okay, is it Sarah Palin’s fault or Michelle Bachmann’s or Rush Limbaugh’s or Glenn Beck’s or Sharron Angle...? When do they get back to blaming George Bush? For the love of pete! What about the Republican that was killed? Didn’t he count?

I tell you what, the lawyers for the defense are going to have quite a witness pool to call from. I can see a ton of subpoenas going out. I wonder if Pima county is going to have the money to hold this case?

No, we don't count. Nor does the fact that the gunman was a loose screw lib leaner with a tinfoil hat. But a requisite of liberalism is to rewrite reality on the fly if it doesn't fit what they want to see outside of their eyelids.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

One thing that the LORD Jesus Christ has to say to the hypocritical Liberals, the left, Main Stream Media , the Democrats .

Luke 6:42

Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother's eye.

I give it a 90% chance this idiot will be on PMSNBC tomorrow morning telling the audience of “Morning Joe” the same things.

They will be out in force to build the narrative for the upcoming news cycle. What’s hysterical is how this shooter, or what he did has NOTHING AT ALL to do with the right, Tea Party, or anyone else associated with Conservatives. This was all really about him being straight up batshit crazy. The Left is just projecting their feelings into all of this to create something that doesn’t even exist!(just like man made global warming)

What disgusts me is how I think the public at large will swallow the narrative hook, line, and sinker. I’d bet the farm that tomorrow morning, the sheeple at the office where I work will speak of this guy as if he were a member of the Rea Party. This is nothing more than a 2011 ‘Reichstag Fire’.

So Sarah Palin inspired a deranged Lefty to shoot a democrat who was to the right of the majority of her party? Tell me another.

The Democrats have no class trying to politically capitalize off such a tragedy.

In the case of Clyburn he has no credibility, no sense, no honor, and no decency. What a disgrace to the Congress he is.

Clyburn was quick to call for more funding for protection for congress critters today too, especially in conjunction with TSA. Could that have anything to do with Barry's plan to unionize the TSA? Hmmm...more funding for union TSA workers thanks to a crisis they won't let go to waste? Of course Clyburn took umbrage at being treated like everyone else at the airport too - he'll no doubt want VIP treatment so he can avoid the unwashed masses he and the other ruling elites reign over.

They always use the middle name to distinguish between them and the unfortunate person(s) out there who may have the same first and last name.

I actually think it’s probably a good thing on balance. For example, there are probably a decent number of “Mark Chapmans” judging by the fact that both names are reasonably common. By styling the murderer as “Mark David Chapman” it probably has a destigmatizing effect on the poor unfortunates who woke up one day to find out they shared a first and last name with a killer.

Somewhat off-topic, Obama, in his remarks, mentioned Gabby and said: “she was a friend of mine.” This is shortly after he said she was injured (and by implication alive). He had hours to get something ready, and they still goof it up?

Clyburn should know that we will not be made the scapegoats for this tragedy. And we will continue to speak up. He’s already branded his political opposition as “racist”, which is one of the things which poisons the political atmosphere. The problem is that some politicians will spread falsehoods, if it helps their cause.

Rep. Clyburn (Jerk-SC) continues his shark-jumping rhetoric.
I see no reason to ever host this “Most-High of African-Americans” on a news or opinion show again.

And I read that Jared had worked on Gabby’s campaign, how does that make him upset about the result of the election?
