Update: Fuller arrested for threats of violence! IRONY...
His status as a victim is, as we know we can expect from the Collective, being exploited. The barking-mad end of the political spectrum has made very large with his outrageous statements, made on tape, following the shooting.
Listen VERY carefully to this "report" from "Democracy Now" (which is a fundamental Collectivist outfit). See how many lies you can count during the "report", and then listen to Mr. Fuller--
Here are a few of my impressions from the Fuller statement:
1. He had worked to elect Giffords, but was not real happy with her (note what he says about his questions for her).
2. Giffords' is swing district, and Mr. Fuller is certainly on the fringe of her supporters.
3. He is not really bright, much less attached to reality. (Note that he refers to a single notice for a fund-raising event by Jesse Kelley [Giffords' GOP opponent] as a "campaign slogan").
4. Note that during the interview he reads a screed he wrote, indicting everybody who is not Nancy Pelosi, and accusing them of wanting to kill nine-year-old girls.
It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled—senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even nine-year-old girls.The priceless part about this "report": it was followed immediately by an interview with Frances Fox Piven, of Cloward-Piven fame, who is making a call for renewed efforts to bring down our nation...including mob action.
“So where are the angry crowds, the demonstrations, sit-ins and unruly mobs?” she writes. “After all, the injustice is apparent. Working people are losing their homes and their pensions while robber-baron CEOs report renewed profits and windfall bonuses. Shouldn’t the unemployed be on the march? Why aren’t they demanding enhanced safety net protections and big initiatives to generate jobs?”He also appears to have given an interview to Media Mutters (to itself, in a dark basement), where he doubled down on his own hate and madness--
Asked if he thought Palin or other media commentators had an impact on the shooting, he said:
"Definitely. Let's say through some fluke Jared Loughner never ever heard of Sarah Palin or [Glenn] Beck or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity and the rest of the crime syndicate, and dreamed it all up on his own, that he'd go over there and wack her.
"There are still plenty of demented people that are in need of a good spanking who are out there and plenty of access with the gun shops to assault weapons thanks to the son of privilege letting that expire. There is the matter of the media attention to it. It is going to make this even more desirable yet.
"If you are going to scream hatred and preach hatred, you're going to sow it after a while if you've got a soap box like they've got. We've got a surplus of demented dingbats, wackos."
Fuller went on to criticize national media outlets that allow violent rhetoric on the air: "I would put Sarah Palin in first place there. I think, really, she should be incarcerated for treason for advocating assassinating public officials. That map I saw that she published on the Internet had crosshairs on it and one of them was meant for Gabrielle Giffords."Loughner needed a good spanking? How about an enema?
As with all the Collective, cause-effect relationships are just too hard for Mr. Fuller.
I feel about Mr. Fuller as I did about the tragic wreak of an exploited human being, Cindy Sheehan. They are very alike in many ways. I hope Mr. Fuller has people who love him, and can help him avoid the fate that Sheehan experienced. Get him under control, and don't let him be exploited by these ghouls...for pity's sake.
