“Tucson Shooting Survivor Arrested for Issuing Death Threat to Tea Partier at ABC Town Hall”
The new civility continues!
Toward the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.
According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”
Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.
Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.
For the record, Humphries is the head of the Tucson Tea Party.
Right-wing extremism caused this violent outburst of left-wing extremism.
I eagerly await the breathless reports from CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC that tells us how Sarah Palin’s “eliminationist rhetoric” led to the Loughner shooting, which led to the wounding that directly led to a death threat issued by a member of the left against a TEA Party leader whose crime seems to be his connection with the violent eliminationist rhetoric the left is so bravely fighting against.
By, you know, issuing death threats.
These people are who we knew them to be. And it’s been great to watch them try to hang themselves. Now, if only the establishment GOP will stop rushing over to cut the rope
