Only 32% of Americans Feel Political Rhetoric is to Blame for Jared Loughner Tucson Shooting Massacre
Once again Liberals, Democrats and yhe MSM find themselves on the wrong side with the American people …
57% of Americans believe that political rhetoric was not to blame for the murderous acts on Saturday by gunman Jared Loughner. Only 32% believe rhetoric was to blame as many jumped to conclusions and fueled their political agenda like Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. Many Democrats, Liberals and their complicit liberal mouth pieces in the media were quick to exploit the Tucson shooting massacre by Jared Loughner that left six dead and critically wounded US Rep. Gabby Giffords. It is obvious that Americans have rejected the MSM’s rhetoric propaganda. Is it any wonder why so many have left the MSM in droves and consider them a credible news source anymore. Even Democrats polled were split on the issue, 49 percent saw no connection; 42 percent said there was.
The face of crazed murderous evil, not political rhetoric
It is truly despicable that any one would have and continue to use the death of a 9 year old little girl for your political gain. Have you no shame? Continue and the backlash will be harsh.
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.
In the wake of the shooting, much focus has been put on the harsh tone of politics in Washington and around the country, particularly after a contentious midterm election. Rhetoric and imagery from both Republicans and Democrats have included gun-related metaphors, but the majority of the country isn’t connecting the shooting to politics
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.
As stated at Hot Air, the public has been able to disseminate spin from facts in the case. As the facts came out in the case, it became obvious to most fair minded people that Loughner was a lone crazed gunman who fixated and targeted US Rep. Gabby Giffords all on his own, even though individuals wanted to play politics with the situation like Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.
The Gateway Pundits brings up an interesting Rasmussen poll, where 45% worry that Obama opponents will turn to violence, down from 53%. Obama’s opponents do not need violence, they have the ballot box.
