Because of it they are preparing to violently push back (would you expect anything less of Terrorists) blaming the attack on liberals and claiming the murderer is a "liberal lunatic".
"The left is coming and will hit us hard on this. We need to push back harder. The shooter was a liberal lunatic. Emphasis on both words," wrote Judson Phillips founder of Tea Party Nation.Putting aside the murderer's fear of government, pro-gold currency screeds which fit perfectly in a Glenn Beck monologue or a Keep Your Government Hands off my Medicare Tea Party Rally, The Tea Party and conservatives have spent the last 2 years vociferously creating a climate of anti-government and hatred for Democrats.
They openly and brazenly brought guns to political rallies. As Chekhov noted,
"If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired."Well, the guns and violence the Tea Partiers have hung upon themselves just went off.
Just recall the hundreds of signs at Tea Party rallies, "We Came Unarmed [This time]", "The Tree of Liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time...", "Let his days be few; and let another take his office." Their every rally was besot with eliminationist wordage, violent imagery, hatred and murderous intent if their political will was thwarted.
"That's because of the Tea Party movement, all these Tim McVeigh wannabes." ~ Sean HannityIt's a hallmark of Republican and conservative political dissatisfaction. They threaten violence always and immediately when not in power. And the last two years have seen a horrible toll. This most recent event obviously has captured every one's attention, but we've become so inured to the Conservative calls to Violence and Bloodshed a review of this timeline will make sense of the recent Tea Party Massacre. And cast a chilling light on every good American who now has to live in fear of Conservative Terrorism.
Sarah Palin, who bears a large responsibility for the Tea Party Massacre in Tuscon, has had her aide claim her gunsight targeting of Giffords and 19 other Democrats were "surveyors marks". "Don't retreat, -Reload" those surveyors marks? Of course, the hypocrites of the Right slavishly agree, no Equivocation is too ridiculous for conservatives.
Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik lays the blame right where it belongs on Sarah Palin and the Tea Party: "When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government," he said. "The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on this country is getting to be outrageous and unfortunately Arizona has become sort of the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry."
