Sounds like a hate crime. Let’s see Holder spin this as a minor misunderstanding instead.

Since it happened at the organizations HQ, it will be "workplace violence", just like Ft. Hood.

Nah, the left may portray this POS up as a stooge set up by the Family Research Council or other right wing “hate groups” to discredit the LGBT community. The conspiracy kooks among them beleive John Lennon was murdered by the CIA, and Fox News eats children and the JOOWS control the banks(OY,I should only be so lucky). Anyone wanna bet me they’ll try this spin?

No doubt. As soon as the guard gets out of the hospital, they should put him in the Gulag.

The media is trying their darnedest!

"According to the Washington Post, 'A security guard at the Family Research Council was shot and wounded Wednesday morning after a scuffle with a man who expressed disagreement with the group’s conservative views.'"

Note the passive voice, "was shot and wounded," as if bullets just happened to be flying around. And the terms "scuffle" and "disagreement." Pathetic. And predictable.

Clearly a hate crime, against the LGBT victim who was forced to defend him/ her/ itself against the bigoted security guard.....

I remember learning in Sunday School there would be a time when the non-believers would come to your door and cut your tongue out for loving Jesus. That time is here, time to buy more bullets and rid this scurge from the face of the earth.

I can do better than that:

"According to the Washington Post, a sentry at the headquarters of a right-wing hate group calling themselves the Family "Research Council" was superficially wounded by a bullet fired from a gun obtained legally under laws supported by the NRA, another right-wing hate group, after confronting a man who mentioned he had a difference of opinion."

Hummmmm? Is this before or after... ABC's Brian Ross identified the guy as a member of the Tea Party, an Elder at 1st Baptist and Ann Romney's horse trainer?

It's before, Bender... I'm still nailing down my sources.

This screen shot above was first.

Later it became this. Click link below.

You guys are amateurs.

"In yet another example of the need for radical and complete bans on all firearms, an unknown number of shots were fired from a weapon, discharged at the well-known hate-group called the "Family Research Council". A homosexual individual was gravely injured, and it remained unclear if the so-called 'stormtrooper' that was posted at the entrance was entirely at fault. Witnesses recall seeing the stormtrooper shouting, then fighting with, the identified gay victim."

Hire me MSM!!!

Not suprising that the liberals are becoming violent.

Conservatives believe in the rules of social order, but in the twisted mind of a liberal, 'diversity' means letting them have their way.......

or else!

Let a professional try this:

"A security guard press-ganged into service at the Washington headquarters of a right-wing reactionary group forced an unpaid LGBT volunteer to surrender his legal firearm at the group's headquarters on Wednesday.

Unnamed sources said the guard then used the firearm to injure himself in an attempt to discredit the volunteer, who was attempting to educate underpaid, anti-equality crusaders of the "Family Research Council".

The volunteer told investigators that he carried the firearm due to an undoubted 'need to protect himself in an atmosphere of hateful and oppressive homophobia'."
