Another Conservative Attack

January 8, 2011 at 10:10 pm Leave a comment

As documented:
– A Conservative man in Tennessee crashed his car into another car that had a child inside – because it had an Obama bumper sticker.
– A man intercepted before shooting members of the ACLU in order to ‘start a revolution’ was in a shootout with the California highway patrol.
– Conservative Christians were arrested in March attempting to kill 2 police officers and then bomb the funeral held to honor them. 
– Republicans show up at Democratic gatherings brandishing guns (legally, but clearly with the intent to intimidate and threaten).
– A Christian Conservative attacked and killed a doctor – during mass, shooting in church with women and children nearby.  
– A man went into a liberal church (one that “allows” gay people to worship God) and started shooting during a childrens performance
– Over the past year, multiple people and groups nationwide have been destroying offices of elected officials, making threats on officials’ homes (not just their workplace, but where their families are. This is an attempt at terror), and even threatening their lives. 
– Conservative pastors lead their churches in prayer for the death of President Obama and other Democrats. 
– Conservative preachers teach that voting for a Democrat should repent or leave the church, some going as far as saying Democrats will be sent to hell. (Great message to teach kids in church. Probably similar to what conservative Islamic clerics teach about their opponents).

And today, they’ve opened fire on Democrat congresswomen Gabrielle Giffords, shooting her in the head.  In the attack, the gunman also killed a nine-year-old child, an aide, and a federal judge who were attending her event.  But to terrorists, that’s just part of the plan – collateral damage is irrelevant, even necessary.  And of course, this occurred in where else…but good ole ArizonaWhat a shithole of a state.

Cheered on by rabid fear-mongers like Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh, conservatives continue to threaten Americans.  Their gutless and ignorant attitude of “If you don’t agree with my viewpoint, you are my enemy, and I will harm you” is not entirely different from the attitude of the conservative muslim groups.  Were these people living in the middle of a dessert in the Middle East, I would expect I would see them talking about jihad and where to attack innocent poeple to carry out their political agenda.

Gabrielle Giffords recently married Navy Commander Mark Kelly.  Giffords was recently elected to her 3rd term and served in the Arizona House and Senate before going to Washington.

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head Saturday when an assailant opened fire outside a grocery store during a meeting with constituents, killing a 9-year-old boy and a federal judge and wounding several others in a rampage that rattled the nation.

Giffords was among at least 10 people wounded, and the hospital said her outlook was “optimistic” and that she was responding to commands from doctors. The hospital said a 9-year-old child was among the killed, and a U.S. Marshal said a federal judge was also fatally shot in the attack.

Giffords spokesman C.J. Karamargin said an unspecified number of her staff members were injured in the shooting. Congressional officials said an aide to the Democrat was killed, but few details were released about the staff members.

A San Francisco man upset with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s support of health care reform pleaded guilty to threatening the Democratic congresswoman and her family, calling her directly on March 25 and threatening to destroy her Northern California home if she voted for health care reform.

In July, a California man known for his anger over left-leaning politics engaged in a shootout with highway patrol officers after planning an attack on the ACLU and another nonprofit group. The man said he wanted to “start a revolution” by killing people at the ACLU and the Tides Foundation.

Giffords herself has drawn the ire of the right, especially for her support of the health care bill from politicians like Sarah Palin.
