Tucson Newspaper Political Cartoonist Fantasized About Obama Sending SEALs to Assassinate Tea
Newsbusters ^ | 8/1/11 | Ken Shepherd

Today Tucson congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) cast her first vote since she was critically injured in a January shooting. You'll recall that in the weeks that followed, the media bemoaned the incivility -- supposedly predominantly conservative in nature -- of the political debate which had allegedly created a climate of hate. But there appears to to be no firestorm over how, just last week, Arizona Daily Star cartoonist David Fitzsimmons fantasized about President Obama sending a SEAL team to assassinate Tea Party-friendly House Republicans.

This, I think, would warrant a quaint visit by the secret service. Anyone have any friends in high places?

When I looked at and read the cartoon I thought it made Obama to look like a power hungry dictator wanna be surrounded by equally power hungry buffoons.

Well hell, Biden called them Terrorists after all. I guess the “new civility” only cuts one way...

Fitz was the first to blame Republicans for the Giffords shooting on national TV within minutes of the news breaking. He should have been fired right there and then.

When I am in charge, this idjit will be cleaning out my cat’s litter box.

Every day.

Yo yo yo, Fitz, draw me a cartoon about cat turds. Make it funnier than the one you did on the Tea Party reps. That one sucked major donkey dongs.

I thought Arizona was the land of squinty-eyed lightning-fast gunslingers, tough cowpokes, and Wyatt Earp. Since when did it become a hotbed of Communism? What the **** HAPPENED to you people???;)

If it was a Conservative Newspaper, the Secret Service and FBI would be all over this.

Besides the obvious, it’s a horrible insult to the Navy SEALS.

The Libs really seem to be stomping their feet like two year olds, goading their parents for a reaction. Unfortunately, the better analogy is ne’er do wells teasing the neighborhood dog who is limited by a chain in the ground, standing just outside of the limits of the chain....and then, one day, unbeknownst to the ruffians, the owner put a new, longer chain on the dog....

After seeing the cartoon at the link, it seems to me that the cartoonist is mocking Biden’s comparison of the Tea Party to “terrorists”.

“After seeing the cartoon at the link, it seems to me that the cartoonist is mocking Biden’s comparison of the Tea Party to “terrorists”.”

I gave the cartoon a second consideration after reading your take- but then I saw this from the same cartoonist, today:

Some of the comments after that one are a perfect example of why this Country will never be able to peacefully resolve its differences and restore our Republic.

Some people aren't just stupid, they are in effect anti-smart. They suck up logic and reason and regurgitate the most vile inanities ever dreamed of.

As someone here said, if liberals didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have any at all...
