Arizona Killer Fits Tea Party Profile Perfectly

By RightKlik and Jessica

Climate of Hate...

The striking similarities between Tea Party conservatives and Jared Lee Loughner:
Uncanny, isn't it?

For all their complaints about the specter of unfair racist profiling in Arizona, the left has provided an amazing example of obnoxious scapegoating with their unhinged reaction to Jared Lee Loughner.

Apparently, the Democrat-run media decided that Loughner was aligned with the Tea Party simply because he wasn't named "Mohammed," and he didn't scream "Allahu Akbar" while spraying bullets on the crowd.

To conclude almost instantly that Loughner was somehow a product of the conservative Tea Party mileu, the left must have been relying on some sort of generalization or profile. This chart shows how crudely and desperately that generalization has been applied.


Charles Krauthammer gets to the heart of this issue with a very good article: Massacre, followed by libel

  1. Wow. The similarities are unreal. Good thing the ever astute left was so quick on the draw to align the two.

    I'm just wondering lefties: How do you like your crow?

  2. These are lots of generalities on both sides, hope you didn't waste too much time on this chart. Your antithesis could also say that the "average" liberal doesn't eat red meat, when there are plenty of exceptions. Blatant generalities to prove or disprove something proves nothing either way.

    I'm not saying he was a Tea Party person, most people (even on the 'left' aren't), but most people are pointing to the climate that SOME Tea Party types (mostly the leadership) have appeared to promote at times.

  3. Steve - which ones? Which tea party leaders have promoted a "climate" that encourages violence?

    Very creative work, and thanks for linking to the Krauthammer column in The Washington Post. That article needs to be widely disseminated.

    I'm curious if you've seen anyone tie the emotional activity related to Sarah Palin to the word "persecution."

    I link to it at anti-Republican Culture. To me, it's an intriguing idea.
