I was shocked and horrified by the news of that a deranged wackjob, whose favorite books included Mein Kampf, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and The Communist Manifesto, shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killed six innocent people. Please don’t misunderstand. I am revolted by the attempt to use these murders and the attempted assassination of this member of Congress for their own political reasons, and I am not joining the moronic search for a political or ideological motive. Let me speak slowly so our liberal friends can understand: he is JUST PLAIN NUTS!! Having visited Jared Lee Loughner’s YouTube channel, and read his psychotic, incomprehensible writing, I am not prepared to join the predictable LSM chorus, solemnly lamenting the “vitriol” in our politics. Translation: the following, in the following order, are responsible for this crime: the gun, Sarah Palin, and Fox News. Inevitable, and ridiculous. As we learn more about this shooter, I am confident that he will be described by the LSM as a “troubled” young man, and not accurately as yet another casualty of the Left’s 40-year project to eliminate the guardrails that in the past often prevented these sad marginal individuals from harming themselves and others: the traditional family, a reverence for human life and a belief in a higher power that most of us call “God.” It’s ironic that the people who have done all they can to destroy the fabric of society that served as a safety net are once again trying to use this horrible incident to serve their own short-term politically expedient objectives.
Rahm said it best for the Left: Never let a crisis go to waste.
