The shooting that took six lives, including a little girl and a judge, and have seriously injured Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, is absolutely sickening. Pray for the full recovery of those injured, and for comfort and peace for those who lost loved ones.
Donald Douglas and Walter Hudson have great round-ups of details about the shooter, a mentally-disturbed, gold-standard loving, atheistic, paranoid, anti-government fan of The Communist Manifesto. The info contained therein puts the lie to the dishonesty and hypocrisy of those blaming the shooting on everyone from Sarah Palin to the Tea Party movement to the Religious Right.
This is nothing new - leftists defame conservatives whenever violence is inflicted upon one of their own, and even when it isn't. There's not much more to say about it that hasn't already been said, save reiterating the one thing everyone who hears this filth needs to understand.
This line of attack isn't sincere. Those pursuing it know better. They don't care what really motivates killers, or what conservatives do and don't say. They say it anyway because they're fundamentally indecent people. Period.
