BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE
Freepers Crash freerepublic.com In A Frenzy Over Rep. Giffords Shooting

*headdesk*
I got a few clips of the postings - you can see them behind the cut. They're itching to lay the blame for the shooting on an 'illegal', a gang member, a liberal, or a Muslim. It is noteworthy that many of the postings I saw were offering condolences for the victims and were also saddened by this tragedy.

You, my dear, have a tougher stomach than I do. I simply can't read comments on news stories any more.

I can't handle it, either. It's painful to see such ignorance and prejudices on such callous display.

I see these comments as normal.

Because, you know, it must have been a foreigner, a person of a different race, or of a different political association.

It could not have been one of us. We're the good guys....

(So even if it was one of us, it really wasn't. Period. Lalalalalala! Can't hear you!)

That made interesting reading. All I can say is that in a country stuffed full of guns and weapons that more or less anyone can access, this type of thing is not surprising. Rather makes a mockery of all the stringent airport security. It will be interesting to see, in time, what the reason for the act actually was. What the government, and ours too, should be investing in is taking care of people with mental health problems. But then anyone can have a really bad day and turn into a nutter .. luckily most people don't though.

Let's not forget the 'pothead' angle.
He MUST have been a liberal because he smoked the tree.
Because a conservative NEVER smokes weed (heavy on the sarcasm here).

The same conservative pundits are shying away from his fascination with Ayn Rand. Yeah, cause she was a total liberal.
