Wonder what you would find if you frisked some of the Democrat groups out there?

Answer: They are using Saturday’s shooting as a fundraising tool.

This is absolutely appalling. Warner Todd Huston – from Big Government – reports:

An extreme, left-wing Democrat group calling itself 21st Century Democrats has had the gall to send out an email blast using as a fundraising tool Saturday’s criminal shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona. Judge John Roll and four others were killed in the incident, one of them a 9-year-old girl, but these Democrats are ignorant enough to be using this incident to try and squeeze donations from its supporters. Some might think the action of 21st Century Democrats is itself a crime — a crime against decency.

The email blast sent out Sunday morning to its supporters tells members that “we don’t know yet” why Jared Loughner shot Gabrielle Giffords but goes on to lay the blame on Sarah Palin and Gifford’s opponent in the past election for using “violent imagery” in his campaign.

The email goes on to ask members to “join us in sharing your thoughts and prayers to the Congresswoman and her family by visiting our website where we have set up a page for you to do so.” Naturally once you click on the link you are taken to a page that prominently displays the group’s DONATE NOW button. It is not in the slightest way discreetly designed. As soon as you go to this so-called prayers page you see a large button asking for donations and another one underneath it urging visitors to “sign up” for email blasts and information.

Disgustingly, 21st Century Democrats is using this crime in a fundraising effort.

Don’t believe it? Here’s a screenshot just in case the group decides to scrub it off their website:

This group has no decency.

I suppose they are just following in the footsteps of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, because they are, in his words, not letting a serious crisis to go to waste. Unfortunately, if this group isn’t doing it then others sure are. According to Politico, some Democrats plotted to blame the Tea Party patriots for Saturday’s horrific shooting in Tucson, Arizona:

One veteran Democratic operative, who blames overheated rhetoric for the shooting, said President Barack Obama should carefully but forcefully do what his predecessor did.

“They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”

Unfortunately for the Democrats, apart from being incredibly insane, all of the evidence is pointing to the fact that Jared Loughner – the shooter – was more left in his political ideology.

*UPDATE* – January 11, 2011 – 10:45 PM.

What is wrong with Democrats? The Weekly Standard reports:

This afternoon Sanders sent out a fundraising appeal, seeking to raise money to fight Republicans and other “right-wing reactionaries” responsible for the climate that led to the shooting.

He writes:

Given the recent tragedy in Arizona, as well as the start of the new Congress, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few words with political friends in Vermont and throughout the country.  I also want to thank the very many supporters who have begun contributing online to my 2012 reelection campaign at www.bernie.org.  There is no question but that the Republican Party, big money corporate interests and right-wing organizations will vigorously oppose me.  Your financial support now and in the future is much appreciated.

Despicable.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the liberal mainstream media and their coverage of the Rep. Giffords shooting?

Answer: They cannot resist the urge to use tragedies in order to play politics.

First, click here to see some of the crucial facts that the liberal mainstream media has been ignoring.

In my blog post yesterday, I mentioned that it comes as no surprise that the liberal mainstream and others from the Left are trying to use this tragic event to play politics. Those who are blaming this horrible event on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Fox News, the Republican Party, and other conservative political identities are immature and irresponsible.

What’s the reason for all of this? Glenn Reynolds – from The Wall Street Journal – elaborates:

Shortly after November’s electoral defeat for the Democrats, pollster Mark Penn appeared on Chris Matthews’s TV show and remarked that what President Obama needed to reconnect with the American people was another Oklahoma City bombing. To judge from the reaction to Saturday’s tragic shootings in Arizona, many on the left (and in the press) agree, and for a while hoped that Jared Lee Loughner’s killing spree might fill the bill.

With only the barest outline of events available, pundits and reporters seemed to agree that the massacre had to be the fault of the tea party movement in general, and of Sarah Palin in particular. Why? Because they had created, in New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s words, a “climate of hate.”

[…]

To be clear, if you’re using this event to criticize the “rhetoric” of Mrs. Palin or others with whom you disagree, then you’re either: (a) asserting a connection between the “rhetoric” and the shooting, which based on evidence to date would be what we call a vicious lie; or (b) you’re not, in which case you’re just seizing on a tragedy to try to score unrelated political points, which is contemptible. Which is it?

I understand the desperation that Democrats must feel after taking a historic beating in the midterm elections and seeing the popularity of ObamaCare plummet while voters flee the party in droves. But those who purport to care about the health of our political community demonstrate precious little actual concern for America’s political well-being when they seize on any pretext, however flimsy, to call their political opponents accomplices to murder.

Where is the decency in that?

I believe the last paragraph says it loud and clear. The Left is so frustrated that they cannot find any hardcore evidence against the Tea Party movement in order to use it against them and discredit their political ideology – plain and simple. Therefore, we can only expect a lot more garbage and nonsense to spew out of the enormous megaphone known as the liberal mainstream media. Heck, it has already started.

Here are some of the liberals who are trying to play politics with this tragic story (this list will be constantly updated):

Expect this list to grow quickly…

NeverForget

Where were you when you first heard about the 9/11 tragedy?

Me: I was in high school just getting done with gym class when the teacher’s TA rushed in and told everyone.
