That didn't take long: Tea Party is blamed for Giffords massacre

As soon as I saw the news coverage about the shooting of Arizona congresscritter Gabrielle Giffords, I knew the first thing out of the mouths of the loony left would be to blame the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and the political right as a whole for Giffords' shooting.

And as surely as the sun rises in the east, I was right, and right, and right, and right.

Problem is, the background of the shooter is not cooperating with the narrative that the political left in this country so wants to pin on the aforementioned people and organizations on the right.

First off, as far as left-wing hate rhetoric towards Gabrielle Giffords, look no further than that hotbed of left-wing loonyism, the Daily Kos. I would link you to this article, but for some reason, the Daily Kos has scrubbed this article from their site. Good thing I screen captured it first:

What's that? Giffords is DEAD to you? So, apparently it was hateful rhetoric on the left that caused this shooter to do this? Not to mention, wasn't it our current left-wing president, Barack Obama, who, when speaking of how to engage with his political enemies, said, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun"? See how this works? The Left is predictably going to try to pin this crime on the political right no matter what the ideology of the shooter.

Speaking of the shooter's ideology, it is becoming more and more apparent that this shooter was far from being a Tea Party sympathizer.

A high school friend of his Tweeted earlier today that he was "quite liberal," "left-wing," a "pothead," and a "political radical." Yeah, he sounds like a real right-wing nutjob.

This is nothing new as of late. Most of the political violence in our country in the last few years has been committed by the political left, even as the left-wing news media does everything it can to laughably paint it as coming from the right.

In the meantime, I pray for Gabrielle Giffords' recovery, as I also pray for the souls of the 6 people killed and the 13 people wounded by the shooter, along with the families of the fallen.

The American Left is just sick. It's time we stop hoping they'll change into rational, decent people.

I'm with Darren.

I find it tragic that people are so stupid that they think someone who has copies of the Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf in their book collection, that they are right wing and conservative. Seriously? I'd expect that in the library of a Daily Kos reader.
