FTT Off-Topic: It Works

A very small and obvious point about the Arizona shooting of a moderate Democratic Congresswoman, and a slew of innocent men, women and children...

Why, exactly, should the right-wing media and political machine have to curtail its use of inflammatory speech?

It's working for them.

See, when my side has crazy people who become unhinged and do dumb things in this country, we wave paper-maiche puppets in public. Maybe we throw paint at people wearing fur, or eggs at a limo. If things really get out of hand, we throw stuff through the windows at a Starbucks or a McDonald's.

When the other side has crazy people, they kill people.

And if that offends any of my countrymen who don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as a few extremists...

Well, get thee to a mosque, and go hang out with people who have been similarly wronged. I hear there's one in lower Manhattan.

Moving on...

Perhaps you haven't seen the latest, but this nut job leaned to your side.

Based on what, some faked Facebook screen shot? Next, you'll be telling me that Palin's staff was using surveyor's marks, rather than gun sites. Or that when Sharon Angle calls for "Bullets Not Ballots", that's just metaphorical.

The other side likes guns. Mine, not so much. Kind of an advantage when you want to win your argument, and don't care how.

"The other side likes guns. Mine, not so much".

Come now Shooter, you are much smarter than that. Sides of the isle don't really matter much when it comes to guns. It only matters as to whom is allowed to keep guns. The bad guys will always have guns, yadda yadda yadda......

Look, this guy was a crackpot. It is all simply too convenient to lay this on the feet of some political actors and say they are responsible. You know who is responsible for this? THE NUTJOB WHO PULLED THE TRIGGER. I don't care what his politics were, who he read, who he slept with. He was responsible. You know who ended the shooting? A responsible concealed carry permit holding citizen.
