The roller coaster of Saturday's tragic event continues. And some of the most asinine rhetoric is coming from an individual that should be focusing on everything except political discourse. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik made idiotic comments during a press conference on Saturday after Jared Loughner's shooting-spree, but today made more comments about his opinions, not facts on the situation. And the blame game continued. He pointed directly to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
"The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgement, he's irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information. Attack people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior, in my opinion, is without consequences and I think he's irresponsible."
U.S. District Judge John Roll, nine-year old Christina Taylor Green and four others are dead and Congressperson Gabrielle Giffords is in critical condition in the hospital because of a raving psychopath, Jared Loughner. Not because of Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, the Tea Party, FOX News or anyone else sick and perverted liberals are trying to blame for the incident.
Additionally, nobody wants to hear Sheriff Dupnik's speculative opinion. It doesn't do anything to help the situation. It only gives Dupnik a national stage to voice his opinion during a time of tragedy. Instead of being a leader in his position, the Countdown with Keith Olbermann guest is acting like a political slob to come out against people that had nothing to do with this situation. It shows the left's obsession with dividing the country to enforce their radical liberal agenda.
To make this point clear, again, there is no evidence that Loughner's actions were political by nature. As we pointed out, someone who's favorite's books are The Communist Manifesto and Mien Kampf doesn't exactly lean to the right. The kid is a nut job, who, if anything, leaned to the left. His internet ramblings make even less sense, but that didn't stop liberals from trying to plant fake Facebook profiles listing Loughner as a Palin-loving conservative.
The loser was obsessed with lucid dreaming, which doesn't mix well with mentally unstable people. It's as if Loughner felt he was in the movie Inception and didn't have to face consequences for his actions because they were taking place in his dreams. Unfortunately, his actions were real and deadly. But again, nothing proves this was political.
Megyn Kelly at FOX News took Sheriff Dumbship to task over his comments - we feel he's appropriately earned that title. Around five minutes into the video (below), the sheriff brings up the Citizens United Supreme Court case that took place last year. This is beyond irrelevant, but it fits his agenda.
"When millions of dollars are filtered into the country to buy very vitriolic ads and they don't have to identified the countries that they're coming from or the people that are donating to them - I think it's time that we take a look at them. I think - free speech is free speech, but it's not without consequences."
That quote is directly connected to the Citizens United case. There is absolutely no place for this garbage from a die-hard Democrat after six people were murdered.
What we saw and continue to see can be summed up in one word: disgusting. Families and friends weren't even given a moment to grieve because liberals jumped in and began blaming Palin, Beck, the Tea Party, etc. because they saw it as a way to politicize a terrible situation. The worst part is that the narratives weren't coming just from the blogosphere, but major news networks and primetime TV anchors. Great job leading by example.
These individuals, including Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, should be reprimanded, fired or they should resign.
