    Being A Crime Victim Is Not A License To Make Up Facts

    Being A Crime Victim Is Not A License To Make Up Facts

    And does not immunize you from criticism when you do.

    From Democracy Now, Tuscon shooting victim Eric Fuller says:

    It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled—senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even nine-year-old girls.”

    Apparently, this finger pointing was not present in an earlier interview.

    I wish you a speedy recovery, but you are wrong for all the reasons most of the rest of the world has come to understand in the last few days.

    P.S., yes, you will be used by those who will hide behind your victim-status since they have no facts to support their theories:

    Cue the right-wing waaaaaahmbulance. I wonder if Megyn Kelly or Bill O’Reilly will bring Fuller on Fox to browbeat him as they did Sheriff Dupnik for expressing the same view.”

    Update:  Aaron Worthing thinks the Democracy Now presentation — and how the statement is being used to support the claim that Palin et al. were responsible — may present Mr. Fuller’s comments out of context, because the question was how he felt at the time of the shooting, not necessarily how he feels now.

    Proof positive that the victims of such events are not saints, heroes, or even decent human beings. To declare that this guy is an expert on political rhetoric and its effect is like calling me an expert on the space program because I sometimes eat lunch at the Wendy's across the street from Johnson Space Center.

    The Intellectual dishonesty of the left is utterly amazing. Aren't they the ones who claim to be so freaking smart?

    It's amazing how the Left continues to sink to new lows

    Yes, everyone knows that the Right's position is that insane Felons should have access to as many guns as possible.

    When the system fails, you don't ask for more system. You refine it.

    "Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can
    succeed-and no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law-maker
    Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy."- John F Kennedy
