Freddie Wants a Tax Cut
It was in the wake of the Gabrielle Giffords attack that a “new tone” was called for by the Left and their echo chamber of the main stream media. Giffords, a Democratic representative from Arizona, was at a supermarket meeting constituents, when Jared Loughner opened fire, killing six and critically wounding the congresswoman.
The Left was quick top jump on the tragedy for political fodder by labeling Loughner a “rightwing extremist.” After all, he had a copy of Adolph Hitler’s Mein Kampf in his personal library. Never mind that he also had The Communist Manifesto, Animal Farm, Plato’s Republic and other books across the political spectrum. Not to mention, he was a long time abuser of alcohol, marijuana, LSD, the hallucinogenic salvia and was diagnosed as a schizophrenic. All of that was irrelevant because it was beneficial for the Left that the narrative be that Loughner was driven to act by his right wing political beliefs. In memoriam of the Oklahoma City bombings that were blamed on Rush Limbaugh, the Left point accusatory fingers at Fox News, Sarah Palin and, again Rush Limbaugh and talk radio.
