Poll: Americans Reject Media Hoax On Arizona Shootings
Even a majority of Democrats say political rhetoric not to blame for the actions of a mentally disturbed psychotic

The establishment media campaign to crassly exploit the tragic Arizona shootings as a way to bludgeon the First Amendment and silence critics of the Obama administration has failed spectacularly, with even a majority of Democrats telling a CBS poll that “violent political rhetoric” was not to blame for the actions of a mentally disturbed madman.
Within minutes of Saturday’s shootings and before the identity of the gunman was even known, establishment mouthpieces like the New York Times and MSNBC, backed up by statist blogs like Huffington Post and the Daily Kos, instantly seized upon the bloodshed to blame the events on tea partiers and what they termed “violent right-wing rhetoric.”
This prompted leftist talking heads, enthusiastically backed by the Associated Press, to contrive a phony national debate about “toning down the rhetoric,” which as we explained, was a mere ploy to politicize the shootings to eviscerate free speech and dissent against big government.
This agenda was made brazenly transparent by the actions of Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who has been heavily criticized for giving a speech shortly after the shootings in which he accused “irresponsible political rhetoric of conservatives,” in particular radio and TV talk show hosts, for the murders of six people.
Even after it emergedthat shooter Jared Lee Loughner was a drug-using, Communist Manifesto-reading occultist whom his classmates had described as being left-wing, the effort to link the events with political opponents of big government continued unabated.
Unfortunately for the architects of this national hoax, a clear majority of the American people just aren’t buying it.
