Here's none other than Cuba's Fidel Castro sounding exactly like the LGOMB (for the uninitiated, that's the "Local Gaggle of Moonbat Bloggers"), among many others, on the January 8th Arizona shootings:
The congresswoman was seriously wounded by a bullet in the head. Doctors were fighting to save her life.
She is married to NASA astronaut Mark Kelly. She was first elected to Congress in 2006 at the age of 36. “She is a supporter of migrant reform, stem cell research and alternative energy”, measures that are hated by the far right.
She was re-elected as the Democratic representative in the past elections.
When her father was asked whether she had any enemies, he replied: "The entire Tea Party”.
It is known that the former US vice-presidential candidate in the 2008 elections and Tea Party leader, Sarah Palin, published on her website, as the aim for supporters of her party, a map of the congressional districts of 20 of the representatives who had backed President Obama’s proposed health reform bill and she had them marked with the viewfinder of a rifle.
Here's a few samples from the LGOMB on the Giffords' shooting:
Probably just an isolated incident. Not related to the right wing terrorism that Beck and company have been advocating. Not at all related I’m sure.
She just won a close election against a guy who held a “target for victory” shooting event featuring fully automatic M16s to “remove” Giffords – so I’m sure that this guy was just a nut and not influenced by the GOP’s bloodthirsty philosophies regarding “2nd amendment remedies” to election results that they don’t like.
Arizona is starting to resemble Germany in the 20,s and 30,s, economic hardships tend to make the bullies lose control. This is probably the opening salvo in what will become a very ugly decade, the right wing noise machine will insure that violence is a viable option for the stupid to take.
She was on the famous Sarah Palin “Target List” and according to Tucson Citizen, Rep. Giffords was shot “point blank in the head.” That makes it a political assassination. I don’t think that it is hyperbole to say that Democrats are being targeted for murder for being Democrats.
Now, am I actually comparing the LGOMB to an authoritarian like Castro? You tell me:
Is this comparison unfair? Before you answer, consider whether the LGOMB would ask this very same question about someone in the opposite political direction. Since that answer is highly likely a "no," well, there you go.
Screw them. Hard.
