Tweets Regarding The Arizona Shooting Tragedy

-By Frederick Meekins

An assassination attempt was made against an Arizona Congresswoman. What freedoms will Americans be coerced into surrendering as a result? In a press conference, the sheriff there has already blamed talk radio for the tragedy.

A Fox News talking head made a fuss about Gabrielle Giffords being the first Jewish woman elected to Congress from Arizona. Would the assassination attempt be less tragic if it had been on a Christian man?

In analyzing the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, blame is not placed on the gunmen for this evil deed but on politics becoming “too personal”. But aren’t the liberals the one that made it that way in their efforts to control every facet of existence?

Maybe political rhetoric would not have grown so intense if the government had done its job of securing the borders and minding its own business as to what type of toilets we have in our homes, what kind of lightbulbs we decide to illuminate them with and what kind of food we decide to stick in our mouths.

The shooting of Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords is tragic. Too bad there isn’t as much outrage over illegal aliens murdering, raping, and looting the average citizens of that state. Perhaps the Speaker of the House ought to make a statement that an attack on any run of the mill American is an attack on all Americans, not just when these horrors befall the ruling elites.

An ABC news report reveals that the shooter of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords listed The Communist Manifesto as one of his favorite books and didn’t make it past the urinalysis in his attempts to enlist in the military, essentially meaning he was strung out on dope. It has also been learned that the gunmen had constructed an occult altar on his parents’ property. Seems he has more in common with Obama voters than members of the Tea Party.

A fuss is being made that the gunmen’s Satanic altar was in a camouflage tent. Would the hyperfeminized media have pointed out its coloration if it had been pink with lacy frills?

If all men are created equal, the murderous Arizona scumbag deserves no more of a stiffer sentence for killing the federal judge than he does for the young girl or senior citizens he murdered.

Is Congress really postponing scheduled business to focus on the tragedy or merely using this as an excuse for an extended weekend that few will have the gonads to question?

Will the tragic AZ shooting serve as the Reichstag Fire in the attempt to abolish the Internet, Talk Radio, and the First Amendment? Of course, in the New World Order that will likely spring from this, merely raising such a suggestion will likely get one incarcerated in the near future.

Stenny Hoyer claims Gifford’s astronaut husband wants the nation’s political rhetoric toned down. News flash to Hoyer, while sympathetic to the Congresswoman’s plight, this isn’t the 1950’s anymore. There is no reason compelling Americans to defer without question to the preferences to an astronaut.

If astronauts are going to preach to us from the Space Station as to what we can say, does that mean preachers can now run the space program from their pulpits?

And what if we refuse to “tone down our rhetoric”, which means conservatives are expected to silence ourselves. Not many ways legitimately around “Congress shall make no law…” unless you plan to repeal it.

Does the government intend to establish a Bureau of Verbal Tone & Infliction to objectively determine what rhetoric “needs to be toned down” or has crossed the line?

An Associated Press story claims the scumbag shooter was noted for being “confrontational, nonlinear, and obsessed with how words create reality”. So basically, he was indistinguishable from the average postmodernist university literature professor.

If Congresswoman Giffords had been 15 to 20 years older than she is now, the policy wonks behind the Obama healthcare legislation she voted for might not see her worthy of the heroic actions taken to save her innocent life.

If the Arizona Tragedy is to serve as justification for additional gun control, does that mean Gabrielle Giffords should have her gun confiscated because someone else shot her?

The crazed Tucson sheriff claims that the shooting of Representative Giffords was a result of the Arizona ID law intended to crackdown on illegal alien criminals. So basically, citizens thinking that those the world doesn’t come to a screeching halt over when befalling a horrible tragedy are as valuable in terms of their basic humanity and thus worthy of the same protection as the vaunted members of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government are the ones responsible for this act of terrorism.

It has been projected that energy bills are expected to triple. Before it’s all over with, overheated rhetoric is about the only warmth Americans may be left with as no one will be able to afford gas or lights.
