Lunatics on the Loose

I just can't muster much concern or outrage in connection to the Arizona shooting. It's unfortunate and I'd rather it not have happened, but I figured the lefties would politicize it to such an extreme that such an event would best be left ignored (much as when the elites feel free to ignore when their policies lead to the deaths of those that they oversee). True to their vitriol, lefties and some congresscritters (or even worse, lefty congresscritters) seem bound and determined to bad mouth their enemies while putting the screws to the law abiding so as to help them hold onto power no matter what.

Karl Denninger notes some lines from the kook's website that should have let people know that he had issues:
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun” - “Argue with neighbors, Get in their face!” - “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard” - “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry.” - “Punish your enemies” - “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick." - “I’m itching for a fight.” “Hand-to-hand combat”.
Oh...sorry, those are quotes from President Obama.

Steve Sailer also notes the media effort last year to read out race as a motivation for an episode of racially motivated mass murder, but has taken the occasion this time to read in every person, place, or thing that they don't like as being at fault in the shooting, classy.

(Update: Drudge also notes the media whitewash of the Ft. Hood Muslim Murder Rampage. There's no low to which the slime in the media won't stoop. They don't care about the dead, only about being able to drag their carcases through town to flog their message. My hope is that the dead rest in peace with their families finding peace and that the perpetrator comes to a horrible end, though I doubt that either goal will come to fruition).

(Update Update: Steve Sailer also notes the media whitewash of the murder of Dutch anti-immigration Prime Minister candidate Pim Fortuyn in 2002 by a lefty assassinin. I myself will point out the shooting rampage at an immigration center in New York. At first lefties flocked to the idea of a right wing nutjob shooting up the place, but then promptly lost interest when it turned out to be someone that shouldn't have been let into the country to begin with.)
