The Loughner story and all the accusations surrounding it are being discussed to excess, but I will add a few things to what I've already said.
First, a lot of commentators around the web have noted how very quickly the condemnations from the Left (from the media, but they're the same) started flying. With the news just coming in, how was it that the condemnations of the Tea Party and Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck were being made so quickly? There was little that was known about the shooter at first, and even now, little is being released about his 'reclusive' family and his background.
The swiftness with which the media and the leftist politicians started pointing fingers suggests, as one possibility, that they had already concocted a strategy of seizing on the next big shooting spree or mass killing and blaming 'right-wing hate' for provoking it. What's their avowed slogan? "Never let a good crisis go to waste"?
I think they had this line of attack already planned. We've heard how the news media have pre-written obituaries for certain noted people ready, so that when the death occurs, the obits can hit the wires. So I think this 'story' was all ready to be deployed when the next spree shooting happened, especially with a white suspect. I mean, when a black or other minority runs amok with a gun, they already have the old race card ready to deal. But I think a White suspect in a shooting spree presented an opportunity, especially since one of the victims was a prominent Democrat.
Of course the fact that the shooter was in no sense 'right-wing' and not exactly the left's favorite culprit, a heartland White guy, sort of threw a wrench into the works, but that didn't slow them down. They just kept on keeping on, and plowed full speed ahead. Don't let the facts get in the way of the ''narrative'' or the party line, is the left's motto.
And in addition to having this tactic of attacking and blaming our side, they probably have a number of people they wish to slander and discredit. Beck and Palin are the best-known, but their mentioning Jared Taylor seems to hint that they want to discredit and marginalize him further. And in doing this, it would seem that they are probably hoping to divide the right, with the usual 'respectables' distancing themselves from Jared Taylor and anyone like him, namely, anybody explicitly pro-White. And sadly I think this is the result they will get; the middle-of-the-road Fox News fans and other such 'respectables' will then denounce the 'far right' or anyone just to their right. The left will be the winner if that's what happens, because they will have succeeded in splitting the right even more, and moving the Republican Party to the left. Remember how the Tea Party, in response to the race card, started trying to prove their anti-racist credentials and embracing 'diversity'? I fear this may happen yet again with this tactic by the left.
This is not the time when the right should start fracturing and pointing fingers at the politically incorrect right -- as if they don't do that already.
One more thought, which I've expressed before, as have others probably, I think the leftists are knowingly pushing our buttons, hoping finally to provoke somebody on the right to lash out. That is what they would really like to see happen. It would provide the pretext that they want, and they could claim that our side started it.
