Tucson shooting victim blames Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Sharron Angle (*BARF*)
Politico (where else) ^ | 1/14/11 | Kendra Marr

Posted on 01/14/2011 9:50:08 AM PST by markomalley

A wounded survivor of the Tucson shooting that critically injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck, and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.

“Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls,” he added, referring to the death of Christina Taylor Green.

I was wondering how long it would take for the media to find somebody to act as the spokesman for the victims. Apparently, they just found him.

Oh, yeah, this guy. He's reported as having campaigned for the Congresswoman KNOWING full well her pro-gun rights position.

Now he's kvetching about it?

The guy is senile.

If he was there to see Giffords, the chances are that he wasn’t a Palin fan to begin with.

Its OK. The more they attack her, the higher she rises. She has become the lightning rod for all their fevered fantasies, and she just shrugs it off.

It looks like Mr. Fuller finally received his DNC talking points. Thank God he's recovering and that his life was spared by the insane shooter.

The SHOOTER is to blame, nobody else. Period.
They can’t wrap it up and call it Christmas.
They are looking to deflect the blame anywhere but there.

This situation presented a perfect opportunity to demonize conservatives, and they know it.

Instead of thanking God for being alive, he’d rather break a Commandment.

And, he’s going to help muddy the waters for the prosecution. But what does that matter...he gets to use his fifteen minutes of fame to vent his spleen against those he hates because they do not share his political ideology.

Pathetic.

They never know when to stop. That is why this is going to backfire on them.

Too much piling on tells the tale.

Look, they probably just got done putting a band aid on his butt and he couldn’t wait to get to the mic.

Victim shopping for sure.

The corollary is: what responses from the other victims are being suppressed to make this victim's response appear representative?

Well Fuller.

If several bystanders hadn’t been exercising their 2nd Amendment rights that day, Jared could have come back and finished you off.

Think about that.

And if you - a veteran - had been carrying a gun that day then you - a veteran - could have done something about this madman instead of becoming his victim.

Cindy Sheehan syndrome. Somebody whispered in his ear that there was money to be made by playing the victim card and pointing fingers. He's just another useful idiot.

I'm almost certain this is the same nutty jerk who went to the home of the shooter's parents, "to try to forgive them."

No doubt he is a liberal kook wanting to blame the world for everything since his birth.

Fuller, a 63-year-old veteran, had campaigned for Giffords during her re-election and was at the supermarket for her “Congress on Your Corner” event.

Why would he campaign for someone who supports the 2nd Amendment? Is it maybe because a "D" was after her name?

Maybe if Mr. Fuller had made a decision to exercise his 2nd amendment rights, he could have defended himself and stopped the shooter sooner.

He drove himself to the hospital.

agree, anyone who does an interview and or knows Amy Goodman knows that this is far left and should not be taken seriously.

However, I am stunned. We are witnessing stuff you read in the history books. Its quite frightening. Its not Sarah P. , Rush, Beck etc they are going after it is the Tea Party and what we did in the last election. They are trying their damnist to scare people away from acknowledging the tea party, associating with tea party, denouncing tea party etc. I will say it again we are smack down in the middle of page 121(just random page) in the history books.

If Sara Palin was the shooter, there would be a lot more dead and a lot fewer victims talking about it. I'm pretty sure she as an alibi as to her location at the time of the shooting and unless someone is postulating a second gunman theory I think we know who is responsible for the shots fired.

If one is looking for the root cause for the lack of civility in the civil discourse, perhaps it would be fruitful to look at those who falsely accuse their political rivals of homicidal acts.

...by this madman that was so vigorously exercising his Second Amendment rights.”

Randomly shooting passersby is the antithesis of our 2nd Amendment rights. If on the other hand you had pulled your own weapon in self defense, then you would have been "vigorously exercising" your 2nd Amendment rights.

I just LOVE how they accuse we ‘conservatives’ of getting our ‘talking points’ and marching orders from Fox...

This WHOLE thing is a CLASSIC example of THEM doing that very thing - STANDARD operation for them.

To blame Palin and especially Beck! ANYONE who WATCHES Beck knows that he REGULARLY, if not DAILY will STRONGLY make the point that ‘violence’ is NOT the answer; to “Don’t let them suck you into it..”, etc...

It reminds me of how I regularly get ‘schooled’ on how awful Christians and Christianity is by people who hate them... not knowing that I’ve been one my whole life. Yeah,.. they SCHOOL me..

This is just a natural extension of the "if you oppose Obama, you a racist meme."

The Obama firewall has been raised a notch. Now, if you oppose Obama, you are a peddler of political vitriol and are responsible for the AZ shooting.

If someone nearby had pulled a gun of their own, there might have been less carnage. The one young man who valiantly ran to help didn’t need to use his—but someone closer could have stopped this much earlier. Fools like this can say what they want, but one more gun might have meant life instead of death for some of these folks.
