WHAT WE CAN LEARN FROM LEFT’S REACTION TO ARIZONA SHOOTING

On January 8th, 2011, in Casas Adobes, Arizona (near Tucson), a disturbed young man by the name of Jared Loughner attempted to assassinate Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Loughner wound up shooting 19 people, including the Congresswoman, who lived. Six of those shot died.
This was a tragedy. I wish the Congresswoman a speedy recovery and extend my condolences to the bereaved.
Even before the facts were out, though, the shooting was used as a tool by the Left to discredit conservatives. It’s been blamed on “vitriolic rhetoric” and a “climate of hate” It’s been linked to the Tea Party, talk radio, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck.
As it turned out, Loughner was a disturbed young man and possibly crazy, was apolitical and hadn’t even voted in the last election.
