Anyway, REPRESENTATIVE DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ (her Facebook page HERE), chairman of the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE, is recycling old accusations. Representative Schultz, on January 11, 2012, blamed the Tea Party movement for the shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords last year by nut-job Jared Lee Loughner last year. Apparently she turned a blind eye, as the left routinely does, to the facts about Loughner that came out later. He has no political affiliation whatsoever. His best friend Zach Osler, said, “(Loughner) did not watch TV; he disliked the news; he didn’t listen to political radio; he didn’t take sides; he wasn’t on the Left; he wasn’t on the Right.” (SOURCE: I know Wikipedia can be a flawed source, but this entry is well source and footnoted. That’s why I used it this time). Loughner is an atheist. Loughner’s list of favorite books ranged from Mein Kampf to the Communist Manifesto. Loughner is drawn to unorthodox political ideologies, but due to his mental problems, is not able to “reasonably sustain any of them” (SOURCE). Loughner is a diagnosed schizophrenic (SOURCE).
I don’t think, though, you will hear Representative Wasserman-Schultz or any other leftists making such comparisons. As we get closer to this fall’s Presidential election, look for the attacks from the left to get much uglier and dirtier.
