You told me the article you referenced was an Editorial in the New York Times, but you failed to provide the month, day, year, or author of that article. I very reasonably tried to run a search for it but that search failed. So I can only assume that because you refuse to give me a link, that means the editorial you mentioned either does not exist or does not confirm that the media and/or Democrats completely blamed Palin.

So you do not even know how to do a basic Google search now? Just how helpless are you?

There is no possible way you searched for this because it is the first result you get if you Google just the first sentence of the quote I provided. I then used several other search engines using “ In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot” as the search and guess what, it was the first result on those searches as well”

Here is the link to the now edited from it’s original:

There is no “anger” in me, I post on facts and common sense and logic, you keep trying to apply your own standard of thinking to rely only on your feelings to me and that is your mistake.

So getting back to the comment, the original story said this:

“In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear.”

Then they edited it to say this:

In 2011, Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl. At the time, we and others were sharply critical of the heated political rhetoric on the right.

I actually quoted from this same link and they softened their tone but they do admit they pointed to “political rhetoric on the right” after the shooting even in this edited comment.

But again, the man was an Independent, he had no connections at all to any Right wing groups, he had not even attended a single Republican event but on the other hand he had attended Democratic events and at one of those earlier events he was able to ask Giffords a question and several people have reported that her reply to his question pissed him off at her, he felt she did not take his question seriously and did not give him an adequate reply.

But all of this is you dodging the point, yes the Liberal media did in fact point to Republican rhetoric when Giffords was shot without any evidence at all that the shooter had even heard or saw the Palin advertisements or was even a Republican, they just assumed Republicans were to blame at the time.

But a lifetime Democrat, a man who had volunteered for Bernie Sander’s campaign and asked if it was Republicans on the field practicing and had a “hit list” in his pocket of only Republicans in his pocket, we can’t say this may was motivated by the political rhetoric of the Left?

Double standards.

Going back to your original claim, let me quote you being as you are being dishonest about what you have said:

Democrats didn’t imply that Palin comments caused Gifford’s shooter to go on a shooting spree

Yes they did imply it, the link I gave you as well as the two versions of the comment before and after editing clearly imply a connection between Palin’s rhetoric and the Giffords shooting.

And I know you will not have enough integrity to admit you were wrong, so go away.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
