    I agree with all but the bolded. We know he was a liberal and not a friend of the tea party before the shooting. We can't say that the lies from the media afterwards had anything to do with it. The guy also had mental problems before the shooting stemming from his time in the military from what I gathered. I think he might be a timebomb and I hope he's getting help. The shooting itself is probably what triggered him to make a death threat. Quite ironic considering he was railing against perceived violence from Sarah Palin and others.

    You MIGHT be right, however, with the amount of "it was the right" blame game taht went on... color me cynical.

    Seems like a clear case of believing lies to me.
    Media blames tea party. Guy makes threats against tea party.

    Where did you connect media and guy? As far as I know, the guy didn't say he did what he did because of the media.

    Yeah, he's been in a bubble since the shooting.

    Look, I'm not trying to defend the guy, I think he's where he should be now (taking this on Barbbtx's word from before), but you're not really making a case here.

    There's nothing that ties this guy's action to the what the media has been saying. You're just speculating.

    It's everyone ELSE (news personalities, commentaries, etc) who are out of line - not someone who actually suffered physically for someone's insanity.

    I feel bad for the living victims - and I will not hold anything against them because of this.
    Except of course...he is venting hatred at the Tea Party which had NOTHING TO DO with this. So...if someone was a victim of assault by...say...a black man...then they would be justified at shouting at random black people that they wanted to kill them?

    The same place the media connected the tea party Loughner.
    The only thing is, there is no connecting the tea party to Loughner.
    Fuller can be connected to the tea party. Media or not.

    Re: Shooting Victim Threatens Tea Partier

    Color me amazed. 8 days later...and we are not only STILL having this discussion but there are still people blaming Palin and the Tea PArty for an act they had nothing to do with AND justifying a 'victims' hatred of people NOT involved with his actual shooting.

    Wow.
