Witness, for example, the immediate blame laid for the Giffords shooting. If you think that many of the same people who participated in that didn't also assume that Zimmerman was probably a conservative Republican and a racist, then I don't know what to say.
    No, but with the Giffords shooting, there was the obvious possibility because she was a Liberal political figure, serving in her capacity as a representative. If martin were a political figure it would make some sense. Just as it is, I can see no connection between the attack and party affiliation.

    But ANY time ANY political figure ANYWHERE is attacked it is reasonable to first assume that it was a political attack.

    Not so much with the young Mr. Martin.


    I know lots of liberals, and plenty conservatives, too. And I can assure you that no one I know has made any such claim.


    And I would laugh in their face if they did.

    his personality is stereotypical Tea-Bagger.

    over-compensating, over-stepping his boundaries, wanna-be cop, angry at women, angry at youth, etc etc.

    Speaking of stereotypes, this one is "hit rock bottom and keep on digging." Or maybe that's just a cliche'. Either way . . .

    Well, I don't know what a "Tea-bagger" is, but, by your description, I'm guessing it's a group you belong to?

    No. Is your response that this is somehow worse/better because he's a Democrat?

    Not really, and even it were, to assume the political leanings of the attacker is not reasonable. Is it reasonable to assume that any assault against a Jew must be a Muslim?

    I didn't say they made the claim. It wasn't about that; it was about thinking it.

    Maybe it was because his goals were political? :/ Just a guess?
