Head Democrat Blames Tea Party for Shooting
Once again Liberal Democrats are trying to blame some of the violence that is going on in our nation on the Tea Party movement. Democrat Party Chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the latest example. She “has refreshed the false and disgraceful meme that the Tea Party is at fault for the tragic Tucson shooting in 2011 that resulted in the death of six people,” The Washington Times reports.
When Jimmy Hoffa Jr. said “Let’s take these son-of-a-bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,” a reference to the Tea Party, she didn’t offer one word of protest.
After the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the Left went into full blame mode by claiming that it was Tea Party rhetoric that led to a lone gunman to shoot Giffords and others.
One liberal group said, “It is fair to say – in today’s political climate, and given today’s political rhetoric – that many have contributed to the building levels of vitriol in our political discourse that have surely contributed to the atmosphere in which this event transpired.”
Giffords’s father was more direct. When he was asked if she had any enemies, he said: “Yeah, the whole Tea Party.”
It doesn’t matter what someone like Wassermann-Schultz says, whether she has any facts or not, the media will regurgitate her words as true because she’s as liberal as they are. They are Liberal Plantation journalists. They report what their masters want them to report. They are media Uncle Toms.
The violence in America is coming from Islamic extremists in our midst (e.g., the Santa Claus killer and the Fort Hoot Shooter), gang and drug killings (often related), domestic situations, and people who follow the survival of the fittest assumptions they were taught in government schools.
Public school children are taught that evolution – from nothing to something with no way to account for morality – is true. Some people act on these government-mandated assumptions.
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the Columbine shooters, justified their actions based on Natural Selection (see here). Harris was wearing “a white T-shirt with the inscription ‘Natural Selection’ on its front.” It was based on a video game of the same name. “The game’s World Wide Web site says it encompasses a ‘realm where anything can happen,’ a place for the ‘bravest of the brave and the fiercest of the fierce. . . . It’s a place where survival of the fittest takes a very literal meaning. . . . It’s the natural way, it’s Natural Selection.”1
It’s not just in the United States. Finland had its own mini-Columbine when
“at least seven people were killed when a teenaged gunman opened fire at a school in southern Finland on November 7, 2007 hours after a video was posted on YouTube predicting a massacre there. . . . The YouTube video, entitled ‘Jokela High School Massacre—11/7/2007,’ was posted by a user called ‘Sturmgeist89.’ ‘I am prepared to fight and die for my cause,’ read a posting by a user of the same name. ‘I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human race and failures of natural selection.’ Sturmgeist means storm spirit in German.”2
The shooter described himself as “a social Darwinist.”3
I would not be surprised that the person who shot Rep. Giffords saw no moral problem in shooting her or anyone else. He acted consistently with a worldview that told him that we are all animals. The species moves forward with the elimination of people who stand in the way of evolutionary progress. Only the stronger biological entity can make the necessary decision to “chop the cotton,” so to speak.
Barbara Reynolds, writing in USA Today, concluded her article “If Your Kids go Ape in School, You’ll Know Why” with these words: “If evolution is forced on our kids, we shouldn’t be perplexed when they beat on their chests or, worse yet, beat on each other and their teachers.” We can add to this, and shoot a congresswoman and bystanders.
