The charge: The Tucson massacre is a consequence of the "climate of hate" created by Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Glenn Beck, ObamaCare opponents and sundry other liberal betes noires.
The verdict: Rarely in American political discourse has there been a charge so reckless, so scurrilous and so unsupported by evidence.
As killers go, Jared Loughner is not reticent. Yet among all his writings, postings, videos and other ravings and in all the testimony from all the people who knew him there is not a single reference to any of these supposed accessories to murder.
Not only is there no evidence that Loughner was impelled to violence by any of those upon whom Paul Krugman, Keith Olbermann, the New York Times, the Tucson sheriff and other rabid partisans are fixated. There is no evidence that he was responding to anything, political or otherwise, outside of his own head.
A climate of hate? This man lived within his very own private climate. "His thoughts were unrelated to anything in our world," said the teacher of Loughner's philosophy class at Pima Community College. "He was very disconnected from reality," said classmate Lydian Ali. "You know how it is when you talk to someone who's mentally ill and they're just not there?" said neighbor Jason Johnson. "It was like he was in his own world."

Um Charles himself went after Palin last night, he did let up just long enough to talk about how awesome Obama is.
It doesn’t matter if it is true or not, the propagandists of the left know that a large percentage of their minions will buy the smear. Its the “Republicans are racist” syndrome.
Just like a blood libel, eh?
That's not news, that's SOP for the "liberal" left.
The WEATHER CHANNEL was talking about that this morning and called Palin’s words anti-semitic.
Yea, I get that feeling every time I speak to a liberal.
Watching Kraut drool is just so pathetic.
"It was like he was in his own world."
But this describes Leftists perfectly.
"You know how it is when you talk to someone who's mentally ill and they're just not there?"
Yes! I do! That's exactly how I feel when I talk to a Leftist.
Isn’t the weather channel run by leftists?
Yes, yes it is. Or at least the current owners; the founder, who cashed out, has made lots of anti-AGW noises, which makes me think he is at least conservative-leaning.
And regarding the anti-semitic charge, I’ll let Alan Dershowitz answer that one.

All well and good, but the liberal media and the Left are going to go right on doing it. They figure it works.
I support the tea party folks’ goals. And I am tired of the small-minded leftists.
Yes, our comrades at MSNBC. The weathermen and -women had previously only been cheerleading for Hussein, now they’re doing hits for him.
Nobody can politically exploit disaster like the Demonrats, and their darling in the White House is the consummate POLITICIAN! Obama’s speech yesterday was a case of using his mouth as an open channel for Satan to talk.
This is right out of the liberal playbook....play the victim, ramp up the accusations, watch the right not defend itself so they can be seen as 'civil'.
Watch, in the next few days, the left will continue to savage Palin, Beck, Rush, and others and then cry when they get it back in their faces that the right didn't learn anything from Obama's speech.
Contrary to the opinions given by FOX commentators afterward, I did not witness the great unifying speech. Yes he did have a line in it about setting aside our differences and not playing the blame game, but within moments erased every good thing he just said by including the word “Vitriol”, which only brings us back to the accusations of the Sheriff.
The left hates jews who like Isreal. They like jewish born people like George Soros who himself hates jews ( actually proved it).
Regardless of the facts of the shooting there is one thing that is clear. Liberals see all of us non-liberals, Conservatives and Libertarians and Constitutionalists and Tea Partiers and all combinations thereof, as true enemies. More violence is expected from them on my part.
Just something to the effect that the words she used were considered to be anti-semitic, so yes. Got disgusted when I started seeing MSNBC/Weather cheering for Hussein instead of delivering the weather. Now they’re his hit team.
