Liberalism's Ugly Face
The American Thinker ^ | January 13, 2011 | Vasko Kohlmayer

Posted on 01/13/2011 2:30:11 AM PST by Scanian

While most normal Americans still reeled in shock in the wake of the Tucson shooting, liberals across the country were out in force blaming conservatives for it. Given how heart-rending the whole tragedy was, their reaction is truly mind-boggling. One can only wonder what kind of human beings would react in this way.

To liberals' eternal shame, it turns out that the shooter was anything but a Tea Partyer and that his "conservative" credentials are rather thin indeed. In fact, the information that has emerged since then would appear to place him in the leftist camp, if anywhere in the political sphere. But in truth, he inhabited the alternate reality of a deranged mind.

This is what it boils down to: A madman shoots a Democrat Congresswoman and a group of innocent bystanders and liberals want to blame conservatives for it. This is worse than outrageous or cynical.

Liberals' response to this atrocity is not a normal human reaction. Normal human beings do not think like that. The normal reaction to this kind of event is grief and tears. Only morally and emotionally deformed individuals could embark on a political smear campaign just moments after such a tragedy without possessing any facts whatsoever.

When I first heard the news of the shooting, I immediately assumed that Giffords was a Republican and it took me several hours to register that she was not. Not once during that time it occurred to me to blame liberals for the atrocity despite the hateful and vitriolic rhetoric which is the hallmark of their political discourse. (Do you remember some of the things they have said about Bush or Palin or conservatives in general?)

The guilty dog barks first. With all libs have done, they find it hard to believe we're not taking up arms against them. They, IMHO, hope we will. We've been better than even I could have hoped. We are stronger than they think. I guess it's from not doing drugs in the 60's.

Morally and emotionally deformed.

That sums up "The Left".
