This is awful, just awful.  U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was shot.  According to the Tucson Sun she was shot in the head.  Here is coverage from HuffPo  and MSNBC:

 This makes me sick to my stomach.

Wait, "God sent violent veterans?" This "press release" might just be the weakest thing I've seen yet from them. He was not a veteran, he couldn't even get in the military. And, if God was sending him to specifically kill the "fag-promoting, baby-killing, proud sinner," (their words, not mine) Congresswoman, then why is she still alive? I thought their God's judgment was final and absolute.  It seems that she is in between life and death right now. If God wanted her to live, he's failed. I God wanted her dead, he's failed.

 

And, one more thing, wouldn't God have better ways to kill people than through someone else? After all, this is the guy that caused the great floods.

 

What a bunch of douches. I want to fight them. All of them. Especially the ones that will picket Christina-Taylor Green's funeral.

This is the sort of thing that makes me wish i had more money. I would buy us both a plane ticket.

According to tweeter @IntelTweet:

Al-Qaida's supporters on the web are cheering the attempted assassination of "the enemy of God" U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.


 

It is not surprising, she is a woman, a woman who has dared to lead a public life, she is Jewish, etc.  everything they hate

The man may have just been a very disturbed person.  We do not take very good care of disturbed persons in this country.  Yes the Left has had violent people, the Weather Underground, ELF, and others.  However I don't know of any politician, commentator or newsperson who has advocated their action, ignored their actions or condoned their actions. 

 

You have free speech but you can't yell fire in a crowded theater.  You also cannot encourage carzy people to kill other people you do not like.  I have been afraid of the comments coming out of the right for years.  They will not take responsiblity for their words. 

 

As a liberal and an atheist I have felt like I had a target on my back in my own community for years.  Now I feel that even more.

 

But I am not going to let fear shut me up. 

I wonder if the guy had one of these:
