Tucson Shooting Victim James Eric Fuller Will Undergo a Mental Health Evaluation after Arrested for Making Death Threats in ABC’s An ‘American Conversation Continued’ … Will MSM Blame Themselves for His Actions?
As if the situation could not get any more strange with the Tucson, AZ shooting and the days that follow … So much for civil discourse and will the MSM blame the LEFT, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik and themselves for J. Eric Fuller’s actions?
Talk about bizarre beyond all comprehension. J. Eric Fuller, a Tucson shooting victim of the hideous Tucson Massacre, has been arrested for make a death threat to a Tea Party spokesman during a taping of ABC’s an ‘American Conversation Continued.’ He yelled “YOU’RE DEAD”during the taping to Trent Humpries of then AZ Tea Party. J. Eric Fuller will also under go a mental health evaluation.
A Tucson mass shooting victim was taken into custody Saturday after yelling “you’re dead” at a Tea Party spokesman during the taping of an ABC-TV town hall event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Office said J. Eric Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to an undisclosed medical facility, NBC News reported. The Associated Press said he was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
He faces charges of threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct, according to Tucson TV station KGUN.
After all the comments to refrain from harsh rhetoric, to try and be more peaceful, during ABC’s an ‘American Conversation Continued’ town hall meant to move on from the terrible happenings of one week ago … J. Eric Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.” WHAT!
KGUN reported that Fuller took exception to comments by Republican state Rep. Terri Proud and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.
Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN reported.
Fuller took a picture of Humphries and shouted, “You’re dead.”
Some media reports said Fuller kept booing and making other remarks before deputies escorted him from the church.
So let’s understand the craziness. We have a gunman in Jared Loughner who by all accounts is “bat S#it” insane where numerous people have stated that he was a menacing individual and they feared that he would one day bring a gun to class. We have the evil Jared Loughner who was kicked out of a community college after doing the following VIDEO, yet he was never made to take a mental health eval. This evil punk then went on a shooting rampage that leaves 6 dead. We then have a bias sheriff who is agenda driven provide his opinion, rather than facts and evidence that it was political rhetoric from the RIGHT that was to blame, even though he had and there was zero proof.
Now we are witness to one of Loughtner’s shooting victims at a town hall setting meant to move on threaten another with death threats and he is sent for a mental health evaluation. Can it get any stranger? As Powerline states, ”isn’t the only untreated mental patient on the Left. And we haven’t even started talking about the New York Times’s columnists”.
So what will come from J. Eric Fuller’s verbal death threats? Will the liberal MSM blame themselves for his actions seeing that ever since the evil acts of Jared Loughner, they have blamed the Right, Republicans, talk radio,Sarah Palin, Rush and Glenn Beck.
So who is to blame for J. Eric Fuller’s death threats … can you say J. Eric Fuller!!!
From the LA Times, US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) taken off ventilator. Fantastic news from such a tragic event. With all the negative news, speculation, false accusations, and hideous and senseless acts of violence by gunman Jared Loughner … it is great to se this uplifting and positive news that Gabby Giffords is well on her way on the mend … good luck Gabby and our prayers are with you.
Doctors in Tucson take shooting victim Gabrielle Giffords off a ventilator, which means she is breathing on her own.
Surgeons at Tucson’s University Medical Center removed Rep. Gabrielle Giffords from a ventilator Saturday and inserted a tracheotomy tube into her neck to assist her breathing, according to the center.
Removing her from the ventilator, which means she is now breathing on her own, allows the medical team to assess her ability to speak and is another step toward stabilizing her condition so she can leave the intensive care unit and be moved to a regular hospital room.
J. Eric Fuller, Tucson Shooting Victim Arrested at Town Hall Meeting For Threatening GOP Rep Terri Proud & Tea Party Spokesman Trent Humphries At ABC Taping … “You’re Dead”
One week after the Tucson, AZ tragedy and there is an arrest at a town hall meeting for death threats … So much for that call for peace, calm and tranquility in the aftermath of the shooting last week at the hands of Jared Loughner.
Tucson shooting victim J. Eric Fuller threatened Trent Humphries, the Pima County Tea Party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. J. Eric Fuller started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” Oh and by the way, J. Eric Fuller is not a Tea Party member, he is not a Republican, he is not a conservative and he was not inspired by Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck Rush Limbaugh or bulls-eyes … HE IS A LEFTY! I guess it’s safe to say that J. Eric Fuller did not receive a “Together We Thrive” t-shirt at this past weeks memorial/pep rally.
How bizarre and ironic is it that one week from the terrible Tucson tragedy that left six dead and 14 injured, including US Rep Gabby Giffords (AZ-D), that one of the shooting victims would be arrested for making death threats in what was billed as a continuation of the Town hall meeting, after there was a memorial where there was a call for civility. Bizarre indeed.
J. Eric Fuller
The theme of the event was “An American Conversation Continued”– the idea being to continue the conversation that a madman’s brutal rampage had interrupted. So it was inevitable that the conversation would eventually turn to politics. It did, toward the end, with Amanpour leading a discussion on a very touchy but obvious topic: gun control.
That’s where the atmosphere turned tense. When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated. Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, “You’re dead.”
When State Rep. Terri Proud (R-Tucson) rose to explain and clarify current and proposed gun legislation in the state, several people groaned or booed her. One of those booing, according to several witnesses, was Fuller. Witnesses sitting near Fuller told KGUN9 News that Fuller was making them feel very uncomfortable.
The event wrapped up a short time later. Deputies then escorted Fuller from the room. As he was being led off, Fuller shouted loudly to the room at large. Several witnesses said that what they thought they heard him shout was, “You’re all whores!”
Fuller, age 63, is a political operative who specializes in gathering petitions for ballot initiatives. Before the program began, he passed out business cards to people sitting around him that read:
“Expediting Initiatives since 2006
“J. Eric Fuller
Leftist J. Eric Fuller was charged with with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct. Outspoken Leftist propagandist Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik could not be reached for comment as to who he could falsely blame. As Protein Wisdom states, “the new civility” from the Left continues.
A Peek inside the Mind of Tucson Gunman Jared Loughner …”We are examining the torture of students” and “This is genocide in America”
From the LA Times, come a VIDEO peak inside the like, times and evil mind of Tucson, AZ gunman Jared Loughner. The video was made by Loughner as he walked around his college campus. The video is also responsible for Loughner being booted from his community college. A campus police officer who saw the video and ”positively recognized the voice and the reflection in the window as student Jared Loughner … the same officer had removed Loughner from his biology class after a disruptive outburst.
Yup, just another “Tea Party” member who was brainwashed by the conservative right. Maybe the liberal MSM, Democrat party and Leftist blogs would like to try to put forth another lie. Much more at The Other McCain, ‘Obligatory: Video in Which Tucson Killer Jabbers About ‘Illegal Wars’ Like Your Average DKos Diarist or Cindy Sheehan’. Touche.
“We are examining the torture of students”
YouTube video that prompted the suspension of Tucson shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner in September was released Friday by officials at Pima Community College and included rambling statements such as “We are examining the torture of students” and “This is genocide in America.”
The video, no longer on the website, was released to The Times following a public records request and offers the extended example of Loughner’s voice.
A campus police officer who saw the video “positively recognized the voice and the reflection in the window as student Jared Loughner,” according to a school police report. That same officer had removed Loughner from his biology class Sept. 23 after a disruptive outburst.
”Pima Community College School – Genocide/Scam – Free Education – Broken United States Constitution”
In the video, Loughner states, “The war that we are in right now is currently illegal under the Constitution”; “This is my genocide school. Where I’m going to be homeless because of this school”; “I haven’t forgotten the teacher that gave me a B for freedom of speech”; “This is Pima Community College, one of the biggest scams in America”; “If the student is unable to locate the external universe, the student is unable to locate the internal universe”; and “Thank you…. This is Jared … from Pima College.”
As Weasel Zippers states, this is yet another example of how the media wants us to believe that a guy who thinks the date is being manipulated by mind control was driven to mass murder by a target map released by Sarah Palin.
President Barack Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton and many others gathered at Washington’s Kennedy Center pay pay tribute to Richard Holbrooke at Memorial. Hmm, did they sell t-shirts at this memorial as well like the one earlier in the week that Obama attended in Tucson, AZ following the Jared Loughner shootings?
World leaders gathered at Washington’s Kennedy Center Friday to honor the legacy of Richard Holbrooke, a legendary figure in the world of foreign policy and a forceful diplomat who brokered peace in Vietnam and Bosnia.
Among those attending the ceremony were President Obama, President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton.
Holbrooke had been serving as the Obama administration’s Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan when he suddenly took ill last month after a meeting at the White House. He died several days later.
The Return of the Jedi … Radio Host Mark Levin To MSNBC and Leftwing Smear Mercahnts: “I’m Going To Drag Your Asses To Federal Court.”
It’s about time some one stood up to these libelous and slanderous hate merchants …
Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levin has taken all he can and he will not take any more. The usual LEFT-wing hate merchants, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik and the MSM have tried to falsely accuse those on the right for being complicit in the actions of the evil Jared Loughner and the mass shooting in Tucson, AZ that left six dead last Saturday. Even though there is no proof of the hateful accusations, in fact the evidence proves just the opposite, Mark Levin stated that “who accuses me of inciting mass murder in Tucson, Arizona is going to be sued. Period.”
Chris Matthews, Ed Shultz, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Joe Scarborough and David Frumm … Test Me!
Radio host Mark Levin is fed up with claims that heated political rhetoric of the sort found on talk radio shows like his are in some way to blame for the shooting in Arizona that left six dead and Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords injured.
And Levin is putting his money where his mouth is by threatening to take MSNBC hosts and contributors like Chris Matthews, Ed Shultz, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Joe Scarborough and David Frumm (“you little weasel”) to federal court for accusations tying Levin to Loughner’s rampage.
“I don’t care if they’re bloggers,” Levin announced. “I don’t care if they’re television hosts, I don’t care if they’re radio hosts. I’m going to drag your ass into federal court. Oh, you’ll have due process. It’ll all be nice and legal.”
Talk about typical Left-wing hypocrisy, the Leftist MSM has called for more civility in political rhetoric and tone it down, yet they are falsely accusing others of mass murder in Tucson, AZ without any proof and are doing so with malice and forethought. As stated at Jammie Wearing Fool, they have messed with the wrong individual in the Great One, Mark Levin.
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.
First Lady exploits Tucson tragedy to target McDonald’s Happy Meals, tolerance.
First lady Michelle Obama took the opportunity to send an open letter to parents in the aftermath of the Tucson, AZ shooting “targeting” how we deal with one another and tolerance. Huh? Let us rephrase that, Michelle Obama exploits the Arizona massacre. As stated by the Gateway Pundit, Jared Loughner, a deranged mental case, who was booted out of his college for his bizarre behavior, goes on a shooting spree in an attempt to assassinate US Rep. Gabby Giffords (AZ-D) after years of fixating on her a Michelle Obama want to teach children about tolerance? Didn’t her own husband, President Barack Obama, state at the Tucson Memorial/Pep Rally that the shootings had nothing to do with the political discourse in the country? Yes, he did.
In the days and weeks ahead, as we struggle with these issues ourselves, many of us will find that our children are struggling with them as well. The questions my daughters have asked are the same ones that many of your children will have – and they don’t lend themselves to easy answers. But they will provide an opportunity for us as parents to teach some valuable lessons – about the character of our country, about the values we hold dear, and about finding hope at a time when it seems far away.
We can teach our children that here in America, we embrace each other, and support each other, in times of crisis. And we can help them do that in their own small way – whether it’s by sending a letter, or saying a prayer, or just keeping the victims and their families in their thoughts.
We can teach them the value of tolerance – the practice of assuming the best, rather than the worst, about those around us. We can teach them to give others the benefit of the doubt, particularly those with whom they disagree.
What on earth does what happened in Tucson, AZ have to do with tolerance? Maybe you would like to tell children that there are some mentally disturbed people in this country and there is sometimes no explanation why they do, what they do. That some people need to be committed for their bizarre behavior is all others around them feel threatened. Gee, why didn’t the first lady also take the opportunity to tell children to stop going to McDonald’s and getting Happy Meals while she was at it?
Tucson Memorial Service/Pep Rally, President Obama Refutes Far Left & MSM Assertion of Shooting Responsibility … “It was not”
Was the shooting caused by toxic political discourse, Obama said, “IT DID NOT” last night …
Presidents Obama’s remarks at last nights memorial service in the wake of the Tucson, AZ shootings were good, hit the mark. During his speech Obama properly addressed the terrible tragedy that left six dead and 14 wounded, including Arizona US Rep Gabby Giffords. President Obama stated in the political portion of his speech that he did not politicize to his credit, “We can do better”.
The speech only works if you mean what you said and walk the walk …
President Obama called for a greater civil political discourse in America, if not for ourselves, then for our children and Christina Green, the 9 year old girl who was murdered Saturday at the hands of evil. However, if we are trying to make a world that our children would be proud of, wouldn’t it start by not placing a mountain of debt apon them?
And in Christina…in Christina we see all of our children. So curious, so trusting, so energetic and full of magic.
So deserving of our love.
And so deserving of our good example. If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate, as it should, let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost. Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point scoring and pettiness that drifts away with the next news cycle.
However, much to to dismay of the far LEFT, the liberal MSM and Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, President Barack Obama refuted the inaccurate and purposeful politicization of the LEFT in that the cause of the evil perpetrated by Jared Loughner had nothing to do with politics or civil discourse.
…But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.
Scripture tells us that there is evil in the world, and that terrible things happen for reasons that defy human understanding. In the words of Job, “when I looked for light, then came darkness.” Bad things happen, and we must guard against simple explanations in the aftermath.
For the truth is that none of us can know exactly what triggered this vicious attack. None of us can know with any certainty what might have stopped those shots from being fired, or what thoughts lurked in the inner recesses of a violent man’s mind.
So yes, we must examine all the facts behind this tragedy. We cannot and will not be passive in the face of such violence. We should be willing to challenge old assumptions in order to lessen the prospects of violence in the future.
Civil political discourse … some one forgot to tell those at the memorial service. During the service there was inappropriate cheering during parts that were far from, well appropriate. There was also booing of AZ Gov. Jan Brewer, that’s appropriate. The hooting and hollering from the crowd was bizarre. This was not a pep rally for Barack Obama, it was a memorial service were the dead, a get well for the injured and a thank you for the heroes. At least it was not supposed to be; however, it really did seem like a pep rally, complete with a logan and t-shirts, “Together We Thrive“. How many memorial services are branded with their own slogan? Michelle Malkin nails the analysis by saying, right speech, too late and strange setting.
I will end by saying this for now. Was the speech good, yes. Should President Barack Obama come forth sooner and quell the far LEFT and MSM libelous accusations sooner, yes. Does talk provide leadership, NO. Obviously, the tone and remarks from President Obama and his slap back to the LEFT came from poll numbers that showed that very few thought Jared Loughner’s evil acts were a result of political discourse.
Leadership is walking the walk, not talking the talk … unless Obama shows leadership in this, all the words mean nothing.
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.
