    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.

    Palinism

    "Palin’s distinct approach to politics is “Palinism.” To me, it’s basically a libertarian conservative world view, combined with an aggressive strategy to win elections and shape the general tone of the debate. Although some more careful – and fearful – conservatives may not like it, Palin’s combination is the way forward; at least for her.

    Although I have a record of criticizing Palin, I’ve come to respect her tremendously in recent months. The more she says and writes, the more impressed I am by her character, fearlessness, political intelligence and strategy. This is one dangerous lady – if you oppose her agenda, that is."

    I read this earlier. I would not believe ANYTHING that Democracy Now says – they are notorious at making things up, taking things out of context, or just plain lying. When I read this quote, it said the injured person was an aide to the Congresswoman. So, given that he is a Democrat, he might possibly be seeing things through the same lens of liberal-blame-game Alinsky tactics.

    Doesn't make it true, of course. But, as always, consider the source, and the person who is speaking.

    Apparently this creep was just arrested for publicly threatening the life of Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.
