In Wake of Tucson Shooting Rampage, Nation's Leaders Must Confront Political Hate and Violence

Interview with Frederick Clarkson, journalist and author, conducted by Scott Harris

The shooting rampage by Jared Lee Loughner in Tuscon, Ariz. on Jan. 8, which left six people dead and critically wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and 13 others, has sparked a national debate on the possible connection between toxic political rhetoric and violence. The attack, which claimed the lives of a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, shocked the conscience of the country. Story continues

this piece needs to be dissected for what it is. The megaphone echo of the SPLC over the media. Like the MIAC report they published.

ahem..

Toxic Obfuscation.

"The assassination attempt targeting Giffords,[ also the Federal Judge who was successfully assassinated, a critical progressive judge ] by the apparently was mentally unbalanced 22-year-old Loughner, may or may not [ that's some critical observation there, huh? ] have been directly related to the increasingly bellicose rhetoric of conservative politicians and activist groups like the tea party movement and other self-described "patriot" groups. [ uhh... this psycho was a Satanist and an advocate of the Communist Manifesto and hardly any possible association to the 'right' ...ha ha hah ] But the senseless violence in Tucson has caused some [ oh, you mean like you; without yet, any links that I can see, to support your empty conjecture? ] to speculate on the effect of extreme right-wing media commentators and politicians who label their political opponents as "traitors," "communists," and "America haters," [ wow man, that's a tremendous leap of logic into the void there Mr. Squeeky because that's like the majority of the pissed off American public towards the criminal corruption that commits treason daily, not just some " extreme right-wing media commentators and politicians"] and use gun metaphors. [ oh, and like this MK Ultra assassin and the police and the lethal arms of this criminal enterprise don't merit the avocation of being armed at all times? Come and git them ]

Since the election of Barack Obama, the United States' first African-American president, the Ku Klux Klan, [ mostly FBI and police ] neo-Nazis, [ same folk here as the 'KKK' on government payroll] other right-wing organizations [ sounds pretty scary to me already, huh? ] have experienced an increase in membership. In April 2009, a government report [ I love the specific sourcing this author uses! ] warned [ actually, he is probably referring to the MIAC report that the Ultra paranoid Israeli propaganda agency, the Southern Poverty Law Center, loves to use ] about the rise of extremist groups [ oh you must be referring to HLS, TSA, and all the the spawn of the Patriot Act, right? ] on the right and their recruitment of U.S. war veterans. [ meaning Oath Keepers, so we, my brothers and sisters in arms who raised our right hand to protect and defend against all enemies of this Constitution and don't have to fire on our own citizens ]. Conservative politicians and radio talk show hosts quickly condemned the report, causing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano [ think Gestapo ] to make a public apology.[ oh, that must have sure hurt ] Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with journalist and author Frederick Clarkson who has written about the religious right[ yeah he means Christians ] and tracked political hate groups for two decades. He looks at the toxic political climate in the U.S. which he believes has contributed to the increasing danger of domestic terrorism not seen since the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. " [ and since the OK bombing was another black opps from the same folk who gave you Waco, Ruby Ridge, the Ft Hood Shooting 11 Sep '01and now this tragic slaughter, we know exactly who you are typing about. ]
