Democrat: Whether Political Rhetoric Was Involved In Tucson Or Not, It Will “Cause The Next Tragedy”

And so begins the shift on this issue. “Whether [political rhetoric] caused what happened in Tucson or not, it’ll cause the next tragedy,” says Rep. Brad Sherman on Fox News.

Thus with this talking point, as evidence mounts that Jarred Loughren wasn’t motivated by politics at all, Democrats can continue their innuendo.

Again, this is all about silencing dissent. If you’re dissenting you’re rocking the boat. If you’re rocking the boat you’re creating an atmosphere of hate. And if you’re creating an atmosphere of hate, you may well be an accessory if someone, somewhere engages in some political violence.

Thus, shut up they explained.

    Ignorance of cause and effect.

    If any laws result from this shooting in restricting speech, gun rights or symbols or increased security for legislators, then we all lose our liberty. You cannot protect against lunatics driven to commit acts of violence unless you have a police state and an absence of all civil rights. Stuff Happens, it is life, it is the price we pay for liberty; the more we demand and expect absolute safety from all harm, the more we surrender our liberty to a ruling elite and the more we destroy the America given to us by our Founding Fathers.

      Absolutely. Using the “logic” of the left (if you can call it logic), because a few people each year get mauled by bears in wilderness or park ares the logical thing to do is kill all the bears. Or, because a couple of kids get injured or even killed riding their bicycles each year, we need to ban all bicycles. Or people get injured or die in car accidents …

      Life happens. Bad stuff happens in life. Get over it. Freedom is messy sometimes.

        That’s right! You can’t paint all the people who dislike Democrats with the same crazy brush that you use on Jared Lee Loughner!

        Just be sure that you don’t paint all muslims with the same crazy brush you use on Osama bin Laden.

        Sarah Palin deserves praise for her stance against taking blame for this gunman. But equally she deserves to be called out on her stance against tolerance for tolerant imams.

          Wow, all that BS just so you could spambot for an anti-American rag. Just, wow.

        Each year, almost 100,000 people in the US are killed by guns. Murder, suicide and accidents make up that total. In addition, the US has by far the highest rate of violent gun deaths among developed nations. And, in terms of political assassinations, no other developed nation even comes close. Lincoln, Garfield, Kennedy were among the killed– Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and Jerry Ford were among the wounded. Then there’s Martin Luther King, George Wallace, Bobby Kennedy, Medgar Evers– and this is only a fraction of the list.

        A little common sense– and a lot less faulty logic– would save lives.

          100,000 people? Really? Care to prove that?

    “Whether Political Rhetoric Was Involved In Tucson Or Not, It Will “Cause The Next Tragedy”” And that is a direct threat against the people of America coming from Rep Brad Sherman. More inciting of violence from the Democrat Party.

    A shooter armed with devastating firepower purposely targeted a specific member of congress, then fired at the people around her. It seems likely that his beliefs, however twisted, resulted in an overtly political act of terrorism.
