The Teabaggers are Responsible for the Tuscon Shooting!: Poll Shows Americans Know Better

by the Left Coast Rebel

The establishment, legacy, Democrat far-left media establishment/personalities just don't get it. No matter how much they huff and puff and scream, "the tea-baggers did it, they shot Congresswoman Giffords and those people!" with nil evidence in sight, the more Americans -- for the most part -- see right through the charade.

The leftist progressive agenda is dying and after the November 2 election, leftists have never been more angry about it. And since they can't take it to the streets, burning cars and rioting as their friends do in Europe, they choose to enlist the most vicious group character assassination imaginable.

Thanks to rapid response conservative new media, the left can't get away with the dirty tricks of old. And with the truth at their fingertips spreading faster than a summer wildfire in Southern California, Americans can make a rational choice and therefore know better:

(CBS) Nearly six in 10 Americans say the country's heated political rhetoric is not to blame for the Tucson shooting rampage that left six dead and critically wounded U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to a CBS News poll.

Overall, 57 percent of respondents said the harsh political tone had nothing to do with the shooting, compared to 32 percent who felt it did. Republicans were more likely to feel the two were unrelated - 69 percent said rhetoric was not to blame; 19 percent said it played a part. Democrats were more split on the issue - 49 percent saw no connection; 42 percent said there was.

Independents more closely reflected the overall breakdown - 56 percent said rhetoric had nothing to do with the attack; 33 percent felt it did.

The left has been up to these games for a long time...but it has stopped working, even in 2002 (remember?).

  1. The other 40% are too stupid to think straight.

  2. Stop. Can we all just hold on for a minute??? The fact that there is even a poll is absurd. This is all absurd. What happened was a horrible horrible tragedy. But how can anyone suppose to know what was going through this man's mind???? He is an individual with mental problems. It's only been 3 days and no formal investigation has been completed. The poll is irrelevant because these are opinions of people who don't know this man. Even giving the poll merit is too much in my book. Sheesh.

  5. 60% of Americans get it, that this man was a deranged lunatic. Problem is that the 40% that believe this derangement is caused by the counter views of leftist views control the media, schools as well as the Senate, White House, and most of the courts. More than enough to make conservative thought illegal if the House has too many RINO's or spineless conservatives.
