Skip to comments.Frank Rich Still Trying To Blame Right For AZ Shootings
Posted on 01/16/2011 6:41:00 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Like Rahm Emanuel, who didn't to waste a crisis, Frank Rich doesn't want to let a murderous rampage pass without trying to wring political advantage from it. By now, even most ardent liberals have had to admit that there was no nexus between conservatives and the manifestly psychotic AZ shooter. But there was Rich, in his New York Times column of this morning, still bitterly clinging to the accusation.
To be sure, Rich recited some disclaimers that by now have become standard. But by unlucky paragraph 13, Rich could restrain himself no more. Fulminated Frank: "Much of last weeks televised bloviation was dishonest, dedicated to the pious, feel-good sentiment that both sides are equally culpable for the rage of the past two years." This is a "false equivalency," he sputtered.
Two paras later, out popped what amounted to a flat-out accusation. After claiming there exists "antigovernment radicalism as rabid on the right now as it was on the left in the late 1960s," Rich argued:
"That Loughner was likely insane, with no coherent ideological agenda, does not mean that a climate of antigovernment hysteria has no effect on him or other crazed loners out there."
Translation: yeah, Loughner was crazy, but conservatives are still to blame.

Frank Rich still trying to blame AZ shootings on conservatives. Ping to Today show list.
Hey, Frank, I already believe that. Now, get outta' my face. Go back to your crazy guy oracle types and show buttcrack to each other in front of the fire ~ GAD!
Has anyone noticed that Loughner shaved his head AND EYEBROWS in that infamous mug shot ?? A lot of Muzzies shave their entire bodies just before their suicide bonbings to meet Allah and the 72 virgins . I found the eyebrow thing to be very curious .
Frank Rich—Loughner is a man under the influence of leftist ideology.
Pay attention, Mr. Rich. Leftist thinking is by nature incoherent, a condition resulting from the chaos of relativism.
Relativism, the bedrock of progressive ideology, asserts there is no ultimate truth, allowing leftists to engage in their common practice of asserting one thing today and then completely contradicting themselves tomorrow. (Like schizophrenics do.) Take it one step further and you have insanity, then chaos and destruction.
Progressivism is founded on the absurd belief that certain people can be given the power to give and to take away the rights of other people. This principle confirms to the sociopath that he is morally free to kill other people as he chooses.
Progressivism teaches that human life has no intrinsic value, and through liberal sentencing of convicted criminals, it teaches that committing horrible crimes such as killing other people will likely bring minimal consequences. Liberalism encourages the sociopath to kill.
There you have it, Mr. Rich. Loughner merely followed your own ideology to its ultimate conclusion.
Nice rosacea Frank! You working on that look or just hitting the sauce a little too hard lately????????

Here are Caitie Parker's (a former friend of the shooter) original responses to 3 different Twitter posters (the 'at' symbol @ = To: _______ )
Zach Osler (video at link): [pp] Zeitgeist Movement had a PROFOUND effect on shooter and how he saw the world
The Zeitgeist Movement is basically a global Marxism one:
For the safety of this nation, every liberal who parrots this line should be sent for psychiatric evaluation!
Given that the screw ball was a lefty, perhaps he shot Giffords because she, being a Conservative ‘Blue Dog’ democrat, wasn’t left enough for him.
Hey, Frankie--Logic 101: You can't prove a negative. But you're going to give it a try. Here, allow me to rephrase your drivel:
"That Loughner was likely insane, with no coherent ideological agenda, does not mean that the fact that the Arizona Diamondbacks finished last in their division has no effect on him or other crazed loners out there."
Its not what they say but what they do!
Frank Rich looks like a gay Karl Malden.
Karl Malden was of course known for his red shiny nose.
O.K., Frank, you lefties have had your fun beating this dead horse. Now it’s time to move on.org. (Unless you want to continue making jackasses of yourselves).

KOS: My CongressWOMAN [Giffords] voted against Nancy Pelosi! And is now DEAD to me!
