Political Hate & Vitriol Responsible for Jared Loughner’s Arizona Shooting Massacre Eh … Only 15% Say Yes
The US public has soundly rejected the liberal MSM, Democrats and Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik who have all tried to exploit and falsely claim that Republicans, talk radio and Fox News were responsible for the Arizona massacre that left six dead and US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D) in critical condition following suspect Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage. According to a recent Quinnipiac poll, only 15% say it was due to heated political rhetoric.
Saturday’s shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, in which six people were killed, could not have been prevented, 40 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Another 23 percent blame the mental health system, while 15 percent say it was due to heated political rhetoric and 9 percent attribute the tragedy to lax gun control.
American voters say 52 – 41 percent that “heated political rhetoric drives unstable people to commit violence,” the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Liberals rather than conservatives are more responsible for such rhetoric, voters say 36 – 32 percent.
Once again the liberal MSM’s attempt to falsely report a story and and contrive that it was conservatives political rhetoric has failed miserably with the American people. Which completely makes sense as to why President Barack Obama, who did little to quell the liberal accusation hate machine in the days following the Arizona massacre, had to finally call out the LEFT during the Tucson Memorial/Pep rally and states that the gunman’s action were a result of evil, not political rhetoric.
In a previously released CBS poll, 32% of Americans thought the mass killings in Tucson, AZ were a result of extreme political rhetoric. Which further shows that the more that the public hears the details and the news, the less they believe the liberal media’s attempt at creating a false narrative.
