Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

"You Pulled the Trigger!"

Yesterday's massacre in Tucson left 6 dead plus many wounded including:

Authorities said the dead included U.S. District Judge John Roll, 63; Christina Greene, 9; Giffords aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30; Dorothy Morris, 76; Dorwin Stoddard, 76; and Phyllis Scheck, 79.

A 9 year old girl, holy shit! The target of the shooting was Gabrielle Giffords, a Democratic congresswoman. The shooter, a crazy asshole named Jared Loughner apparently was targeting the congresswoman. Target, hmmm, where does that sound familiar? Oh yeah:

Notice the 4th name on the list and notice the rifle views on the map. Yes, that is Giffords and she is only one of two (other is Rahall) to get reelected. When you make a map for certain politicians, use something else besides a fucking rifle view finder, use a dot or a flower or anything else. But Sarah Palin is a hunter you betcha, so her "don't retreat reload" rhetoric could have lead to this. Giffords was the target of teabagger violence before the shooting, her office was vandalized. Sarah Palin led to this rhetoric, so she has blood on her hands. Sarah Palin, you pulled the trigger. It wasn't just one nut, but an entire community that added to the rhetoric. But to add to the list of co-conspirators, I will add:

Racists, homophobes, sexists, xenophobes, and Islamophobes. You pulled the trigger.

People who deny the existence of global warming and other anti-environmentalists. You pulled the trigger.

Right-wing media types, tv networks, websites, blogs, radio shows, newspapers, etc. You pulled the trigger.

Christian anti-choicers who oppose legal and safe abortion. You pulled the trigger.

Teabaggers who think they are adding to the debate when in reality are stupid idiots. You pulled the trigger.

People who oppose rational government regulations on big business, the "pseudo-libertarians." You pulled the trigger.

People who want the teaching of creationism in our schools. You pulled the trigger.

People obsessed with guns, not reasonable gun-owners, but gun nuts. You pulled the trigger.

Birthers and other conspiracy theorists obsessed with Obama. You pulled the trigger.

Union-haters. You pulled the trigger.

Warmongers, neocons, and idiots who wave the flag too much. You pulled the trigger.

Every Republican and conservative. You pulled the trigger.

This post might be received with rejection, but it's true. Conservatism has never added anything good to this country and it never will. It has only added bad things, including yesterday in Tucson.
