The folks who envision themselves as the tea party are obviously upset that Gabby Gifford's father replied that his daughter didn't have any enemies except for anyone in the tea party. Next Sarah is issuing a statement of sympathy for the victims of the tragedy and taking down her take back the twenty website that had the crosshairs on the targeted Democratic Congressional members.
Folks who consider themselves liberals or moderates are keenly aware of the activities of the tea party from their inception as an aggressive group of people bent on stifling the town hall meetings of Democratic Congressional members. Their banners depicting the President of the United States with various forms of hatred, we're not talking about people expressing an opinion of actions or proposals but rabid tirades based on hatred and fabrication.
Loughner may or maynot be a conservative or tea party sympathizer, that's not the issue the point being made is that the political environment may have contributed to his feelings against government and public institutions.
I think Glen Beck is right, in an environment of vitriol there is the danger of being attacked; at least that is the impression I get from his comments of his email to Sarah Palin. I repeat, he apparently thinks that words focused against someone in the media can lead to their being assaulted. If it's against a leader of the Tea Party, guard yourself, if you're a Democrat guard yourself [all Democrats are liberals, aren't they? Even the conservative Democrats.] Vitriol against liberals is an attack against Democrats and can lead to their being assaulted.

Hey oldnotgiftedandwhite, Writing in ALL Capital letters makes it hard to read what you have written.

I guess you want to overlook that "tea party" protesters showed up to "a town hall" meeting attended by the President wearing guns and carrying signs calling for blood.

Without regard to actual the actual motive, clearly, the rhetoric has surpassed good sense, in light of the shooting.

Perhaps the only good sense I've seen from Governor Palin was her pulling down the map marked with crosshairs off of her Political Action Committee website.

Get the "Tea Party," as you say?

I certainly can live without people showing up to a debate wearing a pistol.

There is a longer timeline from 2007 when he first fixated on Giffords. He asked her a question she couldn't answer. Her office sends him a letter, he probably felt she knew who he was. He wasn't armed then. Over time he shot guns in the desert with friends.

Sometime he writes My Assignation on Gifford's correspondence from her office. Reports say his first gun was a rifle.

I think it was social political conversation that gave him the next idea how to hurt her.

Giffords got on Tv said her political office windows broken and she was targeted by the Palin graphic explaining those things have consequences. The killer saw that. He understood other people targeted her.

The Tucson Tea Party candidate with his M16. He promoted the public come shoot his weapon, target her seat. Giffords says they were protesting near her office. A crowd gathering to put hate on Giffords, he might have attended those meetings. Now he can see a lot of people hate her too.

The M16 gave him the idea better to spray with bullets, less chance to miss. He couldn't afford a M16. Giffords publicly said she had a Glock handgun. He remembered that. She wins re-election in Nov. last year after a heated campaign, he buys murder weapon end of November. Same gun she has and it will have a long clip like a M16. He can conceal that and still have a lot of bullets to shoot.

He goes through the time line above and gets close, he can see Giffords, then the tragedy occurs. He is mentally messed up but calculated enough to do this crime and planned it out. He carried around a copy of the Constitution said a report. There has been over emphasis, 2nd Amendment Remedies from a wanna be Nevada Senator became publicly known. 2nd Amendment reference that President Obama was going restrict guns immediately, taking office. Gun references enough, the killer assumed the crime could be a political protest.

There are bad reactions to words. The political news cycle is everyday, all hours. Some vehement hateful words in politics recent years. Shouting at politicians, threatening them with violence. Some people think that is way to protest and voice their anger, free speech. To brush off this killer wasn't influenced by hateful political talk is wrong.

ONE MINUTE AFTER THE SHOOTING 911 was called, i suppose he could have still been shooting as the call went in, i think i read he had 33 shots in the clip he used i am more than a little bit curious if he missed and still managed to shoot 19 in what appears to be 90 seconds AT MOST!!! i cannot get over how prominent liberals jumped on the tea party right away and kept on blaming the "atmosphere" in arizona when it was obvious that the congresswomen was not just meeting with hispanics. they wanted to use this tragedy to get the tea party, they could have blamed the nra as soon as they realized an assault weapon had turned as assasination attempt into mass slaughter, and they kept pouring it on. pres. reagan and gov. wallace were shot at with pistols and hinckley badly wounded poor mr brady but this was AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE WORSE AND CLEARLY SO RIGHT AWAY!!! SO THE LIBERAL ELITES SOILED THEMSELVES RIGHT AWAY AND THE CORPORATE RIGHT DEFENDED THEMSELVES AND RAN COVER FOR THE GUN CULTISTS SOILING THEMSELVES AS WELL!!! how do you run an ad campign for a weapon like the tucson gun? "REMEMBER THAT WARM AND FUZZY FEELING YOU GOT SETTING FIRE TO A ROW OF ANTS WHEN YOU WERE IN THE 7th GRADE?A GLOCK SEMI AUTO PISTOL CAN HELP YOU BRING IT BACK!!! WAKE UP AND SMELL THE OVERCLASS AMERICA!!!
