The left is trying to exploit the tragic shooting for it's own political gain

Sunday, January 9, 2011

What the many on the political left are doing is reprehensible. Look, the shooting of Rep. Giffords and others in Arizona yesterday by a madman was an unspeakable tragedy. But many on the left including Keith Olbermann want to exploit this tragedy to make political points against the right and against the Tea Party. Do people like Olbermann have no shame? I guess not.

Now is the time for us as a nation to come together in the wake of this tragedy. It doesn't matter what political leanings if any the shooter might have had. We all know that there are crazies on both the left and the right. But is it fair to blame a whole class or people over the actions of one madman? Of course it's not.

If the shooter had been an Arab immigrant then I am sure that we would not have heard a peep out of people like Olbermann. But since it happened to be a young white man, then all hell has to break loose. This is such a hypocritical double standard that it is just pitiful.

My heart goes out to all of the families of the victims of this tragedy. And of course I wish a speedy and complete recovery to all of the injured. Let us all pray for them.

And while I'm at it let me say this. After a fair trial, I hope that the crazy shooter is executed. He deserves no less than the ultimate punishment for what he has done.
