SOURCES: Gunman With Chick-Fil-A Bag Opens Fire At Conservatives
FoxNation.com ^ | 8/15/2012

Posted on 08/15/2012 6:27:52 PM PDT by GVnana

A security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.

The gunman entered the lobby of the organization's Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 and expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions, Fox News has learned. When the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.

“The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. ”He did his job. The person never made it past the front.”

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. Sources also said the gunman may have been carrying a bag from Chick-fil-A, the embattled fast-food restaurant whose president came under fire from gay activists after he said he did not agree with same-sex marriage.

Sources told Fox News 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."

(AP) WASHINGTON - A man suspected of shooting and wounding a security guard in the lobby of a Christian lobbying group had been volunteering at a community center for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

A law enforcement official has identified the suspect arrested in Wednesday's shooting as Floyd Corkins II of Herndon, Va. Investigators were interviewing his neighbors.

I’m just happy that we didn’t get to see more of him in the photo.

Nothing wrong with him that a straight jacket and a padded cell couldn’t take care of.

Isn’t it interesting the more the left gets, the more angry and violent they become. They have the president on their side, gay marriage in many places, yet they now want to exterminate the church and all conservative groups. As “haters”.

James McJunkin, the head of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, said authorities do not yet know the gunman's motive.

Just can't figure it out.

And right there is the extent of Liberal reasoning.

“Those people are so intolerant, they need shot. And if I hit an “innocent”, it’s not about him, it’s just about what the place stands for, therefore I don’t deserve his retaliation.”

And, for the Liberal there’s not one moment of cognitive dissonance in the whole fracture, convoluted thought.

Now, to wait for the tweets praising the man and saying that the organization got what it deserved, along with more condemnation of “hate chicken”.

you’re kidding yourself if you think this clown will get any serious jailtime. He’s headed straight to the psycho ward and this will be blamed on medication.

There no way this sees a criminal trial.

Without the Internet to keep the MSM “honest”, I doubt we would know any of this.

An original AP article on this guy was headlined: 'Shooting suspect was volunteering at LGBT center'

When you search Google by that headline, you see that it was run in all kinds of online venues:
* Miami Herald
* Boston.com
* USNEWS.com
* MyFoxHouston.com
* MSNBC.com
* 13ABC.com
* etc.

Then, when you click on the same AP article at these venues, you see that AP -- and all these venues and more -- changed the headline to: 'Official: Suspect criticized group before shooting

The shooting itself almost becomes an afterthought to what AP deems the most important part of the story: That a certain group needed to be 'criticized'

And, of course, 'tis not PC among the liberals to associate a shooter with the LGBT movement...so, of course, that headline was dropped in favor of almost blaming FRC.

Outrageous AP...

So, is Barack the conniving Bolshivik or Brian Ross gonna fly in and console the victim and give a big speech about how violence is not the answer and that we absolutely must retain civility?  Is anyone in the MSM gonna blame left-wing propoganda for inciting violent behavior?  Is anyone in the MSM gonna blame Richard Trumpka, Occupy Wall Street or the radical homosexaul agenda?  Naaa.  Didn't think so.

So, it's not about the person you just shot? It's about what the institution stands for? What do you have in mind for all of us who stand behind what that institution stands for?

Seems to me a lot of people with wicked minds have a lot of violence planned for those of us who disagree with them. His comment is VERY revealing. We are in for a lot of VERY bad problems in this country because of the way the leftist folks are thinking.

The failure of leadership to appropriately punish those committing these crimes only leads to more of them being committed.

Looks like a SKINHEAD to me. Why is that term only used for “racists” and “neonazis”? There are Socialist-Anarchist skins and the “sharps” who still like to rampage.

Calling one side “fascist” is no excuse for Commies to riot and rampage without charge.

This is where all the race baiting and hatred leads to. The left, through the main instigator, Barrack Obama, is trying to incite a civil war.

We won't rise to the bait. But we will literally kick their asses in November.

If you go to the Advocate, under this news story, click on the readers comments. They are terrible. Here is a few of them.

Jan Baekgaard Pedersen: Unless of course we can swoop in and kill all the hatemongers in one big swoop and simply eradicate them....sometimes it takes a little sacrifice for the common good;-)

Derek M. Silkebaken · Subscribe
what goes around, comes around... FRC: your hate begets hate! personally, I think whomever shot the security guard should have waited for tony perkins to come out of their compound... I have no tolerance for religiously psychotic hate groups like FRC, Exodus International and others... they can all go to hell!

Ty Fancher
We give Martin Luther King and “nonviolent social change” most of the credit for the civil rights movement, but it was people like Malcolm X and the Black Panthers who scared enough people that things finally changed. We have asked nicely for far too long with virtually no progress. I am sick and tired of whiny wimps saying “violence is never the answer” because it is the answer when anti-gay people and groups continue to attack us! FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE! Fight back, it’s time to stop being such sissies and bash back! How many more stories of violence, torture and murder against gays and lesbians will you tolerate? The bigots need to feel fear, real physical fear, just like they try to do to us and I say...FINALLY! I wish he had gotten the leaders!

"Don't shoot me. I'm just a liberal who is killing conservatives. That's allowed." Who else says crap like that? Muslims, about infidels. Liberals really do think like muslims, at least when it comes to who is allowed to kill whom.

Yes, indeed. Individual shareholders of GM were supposedly not targeted, at least if they made less than $250K/yr, but the institution and car market was the ostensible target, for the benefit of redistribution to their buds in the unions.

They have the gall behind such action to think po' folk will recognize innocence (ha!) and beneficence [sic] of the attack on the institution, as if not only will the little folk stay their hands in retribution or arrest, but they'd vote for and side with the revolutionary when they would truly come to understand from one of the risk-taking pioneers. Truly demented Leftist thinking that, which can only lead to much bloodshed.

Boy is he fortunate he attacked a Christian organization that is willing to show mercy. Elsewhere, he might not have gotten off so easily.

It seems our federal government has become extremely comfortable and proficient in promoting Civil wars in many other nations.

I fear this is but the start of measured violence and assassinations conducted by the left upon the Tea Parties and Conservative. This is to cause so much confusion that the elections can be cancelled. I fear some nut case might even assassinate Mitt and Paul! I put nothing past them. When they lose—it will get worse! Lets hope I am wrong.
