**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Tonight, after I finished the Jewish Sabbath, I learned the news of the shooting of Democrat Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, a federal judge, and several others. Say a prayer for Congresswoman Giffords (who is fighting for her life) and her family and for the families of federal Judge John M. Roll and the five others who were tragically murdered.
Sickening: ABC News Blames Rep. Giffords Shooting on Arizona Immigration Law
Since Giffords is an Arizona Congresswoman who opposed Arizona’s law to enforce immigration laws and was the point man for Barack Obama’s plan to send more soldiers to the border, I wondered how long it would take for the liberal mainstream media to blame this massacre by a total nut on those of us who stand for secure borders and NOT for any form of violence like what occurred today. Well, it didn’t take long.
In fact, ABC News–in its very first report on the air–suggested that this was somehow related to the fact that Arizona has a “heated political climate surrounding its immigration law.” The network newscast then went into the fact that Giffords opposed the law and that she was Barack Obama’s opposition point man. And the anchor, David Muir, and reporters repeatedly stressed this point.
Um, evidence please?
In fact, there is no evidence that the shooter, this murderer, Jared Loughner, was anything but a nut. No evidence at all that this had anything whatsoever to do with immigration. It’s like me saying that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab picked Detroit as the destination over which to detonate his underwear bomb because of the heated climate surrounding Detroit’s corrupt former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick. One has NOTHING to do with the other.
This simply has nothing to do with the immigration law. And it’s absurd to pin this instance of craziness on that law or those of us inside or outside of Arizona who support that law.
Clearly, those–who do pin this on the law and those who support it–have an agenda. And ABC News needs to change is name to Los ABC Propagandistos. (I don’t speak Spanish, so forgive me for making that one up.)
And I’m sure ABC isn’t the only “news” outlet to do so. In fact, I’d bet most of them did the same. They all tend to toe the party line on this stuff.
This was a Leftist Hate Crime. The guy is an Anarchist/Far Left nut whose favorite books were The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf.
Exactly. How sad that ABC News just “didn’t get to that” on tonight’s newscast. Too busy blaming the immigration law. Like I said, sooooo predictable.
