FBI probing shooting of guard at Family Research Council HQ
fox news ^ | 08/15/12 | staff

Posted on 08/15/2012 10:17:51 AM PDT by winoneforthegipper

A security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C., was shot in the arm by a gunman who sources said expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions.

The guard, who was not identified, was conscious after the shooting and was being treated. The shooting occurred in the Chinatown neighborhood Wednesday morning. The gunman was apprehended and was being questioned by the FBI, sources said. Sources said he is in his twenties and may have been posing as an intern.

The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard," a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot.

Holder has already ruled this out as not a hate crime.

Now what family-related policy would that be, that caused a gunman to shoot a token representative of the Family Research Council? Could it have been hard data about children needing both a mother and a father that result in FRC's support for traditional marriage?

No! Really? Those nice gay folks would never stoop to shooting someone, would they?

Is that true, or did you just omit a sarcasm tag?

I think you meant to type: Holder has already ruled this as not a hate crime.

I could not find it (at this time) on ABC news site. CBS has it but oddly (sarc) doesn’t mention that the shooter articulated disagreements with the groups politics (an ommission I’m sure they would make if it had been a Tea Party member shooting up some liberal group office).

I remember the shooting at Planned Parenthood in Boston. People actually were sad because the girls that got killed were “beautiful”. Well Nazi Death Camps had pretty girls working as secretaries too.

the money quote....

Sources told Fox New that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.”

BANG! Oh, sorry about that. I was not shooting at you, just what you stand for. Did I hit it? Hey, you hear me?

May have had something to do with FRC’s “I Vote Values” campaign and their Presidential Voter Guide and Congressional Scorecards - http://downloads.frcaction.org/EF/EF12F13.pdf

Hatred from the left manifesting itself in physical actions. The Left (and media) accused the Right of "inciting" the Gifford's shooting, it is now the Left (and a complicit media) inciting their own to violent action against the Right.

But.... the "news" media will claim the Right is inciting people to act out against it. We need to fight this as much as possible.

So will DHS add gays who hate their life to the list of likely domestic terrorists. Don’t count on it. DHS is more likely to add the security guard.

Thanks. Another thread said it has been classified as “domestic terrorism.” That means a slap on the wrist compared to a hate crime. Out in 6 weeks. My turn: /sarc

The Human Rights Campaign apparently thinks the Family Research Council is a "hate group", as labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center. I get the FRC newsletter by email and this characterization from the HRC web site appears to be a bogus smear campaign.

---

"Paul Ryan Speaking at Hate Group’s Annual Conference"

"...GOP presumptive VP nominee Paul Ryan will speak at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit next month. The gathering is taking place in Washington, D.C. and is drawing other anti-LGBT names including Michele Bachmann and Rick Santorum. Liberty University and the American Family Association are among the other groups sponsoring the event....The FRC has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. It’s a group that has advocated for the criminalization of homosexuality, called for LGBT people to be exported from the U.S., and has pushed dangerous lies trying to link being gay to pedophilia."

“has pushed dangerous lies trying to link being gay to pedophilia.”

THIS IS NOT A LIE. IT IS THE TRUTH!!! And by the way, studies of serial killers show that not only do they share in common a pattern of cruelty to animals, they also tend to be HOMOSEXUAL. The media will tell you about the first, but not he second. Guess why???/s

The problem I see....is if you are mentally deranged to start with (on meds, etc)....then the entire discussion for a hate crime is null and void. You could put this guy into the same jail as the Tucson or Aurora guys.
