6 of 10 Say Political Tone Had Nothing to Do With Arizona Shooting

Mugshot of a psychopath, Jared Lee Loughner


The Left and the MSM cynically are making political and partisan hay from the Arizona massacre by an evil psychopath, Jared Lee Loughner. Most reprehensible of all is the sheriff in charge of the investigation into the shooting, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who has been yakking non-stop to the media since the massacre, blaming the TEA party, Sarah Palin, and the latest, Rush Limbaugh!
Happily, most Americans have better judgment than Sheriff Dupnik and are not falling for the spin.
A new CBS poll out today finds most Americans — nearly 6 in 10 — have concluded that partisan rhetoric and bickering blamed by the Left for the shootings, did not drive Loughner to murder.

The CBS poll, conducted by phone Sunday and Monday, surveyed 673 Americans. The results are:

  • Of the 673 Americans who were surveyed, 57% said “the harsh political tone had nothing to do with the shooting,” compared to 32% who believe it did.
  • Republicans were far more likely to see no connection (69%) than Democrats who were more evenly split.
  • Even among the Democrats however, nearly half (49%) saw no connection; 42% did.
  • Among Independents, 56% saw no connection, vs. 33% who say words did play a role.

They will blame everybody but themselves. Here is a great article that depicts where the blame should lie!!!

It is well worth the read. I don’t want to take up too much space by copying & posting it here although the author gave permission. It is definitely something to think about!!!

I do think that violent rhetoric caused the BHO supporter, Arizona Killer Loughner, to murder Judge Roll et al, i.e., BHO’s incitement of his followers to commit acts of violence on his “enemies,” Congresswoman Giffords, Judge Roll and others.

Who said Demo-rats ever represented or knew what We the People wanted? (Left/libtards were just itchin’ to launch into “those poor deranged veterans… it’s all Bush’s fault” until they found the guy couldn’t even enlist.) Alkinsky-itis (crass political “there is only the fight” opportunism) doesn’t exactly endear them to folk either.

Hi Eowyn, Thank you so much for your concern and prayers. I just got back yesterday and am now playing catch up. I had a fantastic time and what surprised me the most is, even in the midst of frigid cold temps and snow, my pain level did not increase one iota as I feared it would. The Lord is sooo good! My youngest granddaughter is a real comic and I could watch her 24/7. Her little prayers were so precious to hear as I am sure they were to the Lord’s ears as well. I hadn’t seen her since… Read more »

I blame the Arizona shooting on the shooter.
But if you’re looking for someone who may have been an enabler in all this, you might want to start taking a really hard look at Sheriff Dipstick, who seems to be doing his damndest to deflect attention away from him.

Got that right Dave….he knew about this guy and the lunatic was able to get a gun? He’s a failure looking to cover his you-know-what.

You know…to further prove that the above article is true, when I went back home, I had a long talk with one of my daughters friends. She tried to commit suicide…twice… and they took away her kids. The story goes like this. She told her doctor she had been depressed. Her doc sent her to another doc who put her on a bunch of meds. That is when she tried to commit suicide. That is when her kids were taken. My daughter took all her meds and stayed with her while she withdrew from them and she came back to… Read more »

As for Jared Lee Loughner, I’d say he’d seen Taxi Driver too many times (definitely Travis Bickle-ish) but he’s probably too young to have seen it or have it on DVD. “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? …” (I’d post a clip from YouTube, but– per ’70s drama “realism”– everything memorable from that movie has DeNiro saying the F-word).

I don’t think political tone had a thing to do with this. However, if it did, fingers could be pointed in thousands of directions , ALL liberal.

The illogical and absurd stretch that is being made by the liberal media is another ongoing deceptive technique. At the National Judicial College, we were taught about an important concept called, “material fallacies.” These fallacies are an attempt to get a trier of fact away from the real issues set before a trier in fact. In this case, the triers of fact are the American people as to whether or not the deranged and/or possessed killer committed his atrocities as a result of “right wing” rhetoric. If this is the case as Linda points out, the fingers could be pointed… Read more »
