Liberals use tragedy to push agenda


It was predictable! As soon as the Tucson madman shot Congresswoman Giffords and those other poor souls, the liberal media (CNN, CNBC, New York Times) began to point fingers at Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Republicans, and the Tea Party. Without the slightest investigation into who this mad man was, he was immediately identified as a radical Republican or Tea Party provoked assassin. Had they, (including the sheriff of Pima County) bothered to check they would have known he was a follower of Marx's Communist Manifesto and Hitler's "Mien Kampf." Hardly a Republican or Tea Party handbook.


The move in Congress now is to try to pass a law to shut down any voice that is raised in protest to what our government, led by the liberals, want to force on us. I wonder if they remember it was Congresswoman Giffords who read the Congress the First Amendment to the Constitution that already states in part "Congress shall make no law respecting the abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people to peacefully assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."


The shooter, Jared Loughner, was known among his associates as "dope-smoking crazy." He was kicked out of college because one of his teachers and the class felt threatened by him. How was it that the law enforcement in Tucson didn't have him on a watch list? The sheriff admitted they knew about him but couldn't explain why he wasn't being watched. It looks as if he preferred to shift blame to Tea Parties and the conservative media.


He, along with the liberal media, are busy demonizing a whole group of loyal Americans  who dare to speak out against the direction in which the democratic liberals are leading our nation. Yes, they would like to take our right to speak out and will even use this tragedy to push their agenda.


We must stand on our Constitutional rights and refuse to be herded like sheep to take away our liberties.


Stand up America. Speak up for your rights. God bless America.
