    Arizona Sheriff Blasts Rush Limbaugh for Spewing 'Irresponsible' Vitriol

    Link

    Jan. 10, 2011
    The Arizona sheriff investigating the Tucson shooting
    that left U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically
    wounded had harsh words today for those engaging
    in political rhetoric, calling conservative radio host
    Rush Limbaugh "irresponsible" for continuing the
    vitriol.
    "The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush
    Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses
    partial information, sometimes wrong information," P
    ima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said today.
    "[Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against
    government, angers them against elected officials and
    that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without
    consequences."
    Limbaugh today railed against the media and Dupnik
    for trying to draw a link between the heated political
    climate and the shooting rampage, calling the sheriff
    a "fool." But Dupnik stood by his assertions.
    "The vitriol affects the [unstable] personality that we
    are talking about," he said. "You can say, 'Oh no, it
    doesn't,' but my opinion is that it does."
    You knew it was coming, didn't you? The lefties are coming out in droves now, probably we'll have anti-gun nuts all over now.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

    This isn't the basement, you're expected to actually debate the subject matter up here.

    This Sheriff has been saying the same thing on all the shows. This is the first time I've heard him mention Rush though. He's politicizing it for whatever reason - and we don't know what if anything motivating Loughner to start shooting. Give that this is all speculation from the Sheriff I'm not sure what he gets out of it.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's best that his friends won't defend him.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Well, at least he's leaving it at blaming the Rush's of the right, not the entire right, as was discussed in another thread.

    I really think the article should mention the sheriff's political association. He is a democrat. Whether that matters should be up to the individual reading the article. Instead, the reporter made that decision for all, and left the impression that there may not have been a political motivation to him blasting republicans. BTW, the shooter has now been identifed to be an indpendent - he was not a republican.

    You've got to be kidding me! After this jerk of a sheriff comes immediately out blaming the tea party with not one fact he has the nerve to say this!

    As I stated in a different threat - the media, some uber left blogs and some politicians are seeing what will stick. They threw the tea party and Palin out the first day and the tea party fell off right away, but Palin got some support and lots of others jumped on that bandwagon. A day later the Palin thing is starting to fall off given a ton of evidence now showing liberal blogs, politicians and even Obama have been using as bad and worse language indicating violence. So now the tactic is to either claim the guy was just a crazy nut with NO political affiliation or pick a few easy targets (tried and true) and let it wallow there for a while.
