    Or Conservatives don't have something "liberal," to pin on Roof, and thus it isn't about politics.

    If some liberal not job shoots something up a month (or 3 or 6, w.e) from now, conservatives would be blaming liberals and dems, make no mistake.

    None. "Crazy" is not a political lean.

    Sure it is. It's the Michele Bachmann wing of the Tea Party.

    The racist who did the shooting is responsible.

    Wait and see how his trial ends up.

    but but but.... that wouldn't be PC and it wouldn't fall in neatly with the liberal agenda. So unless you're willing to say that Islam is evil, you need to bite your tongue.

    Republicans. Sure the kid was a drug addict but still, if you have one party screaming on a daily basis "The Country is Being Taken Away by people who vote Democrat" it's not exactly rocket science who's to blame for random drug addict deciding to go kill "the people who vote Democrat".

    Republicans on a daily basis herald the end of the country thanks to Obama.

    Amazingly horrible question, why would a political lean be responsible for Charleston?

    I think it's disgusting and in incredibly poor taste that the left has decided to take what is a national tragedy and a very sad situation, AND POLITICIZE IT.

    There's something sick and sinister about the OPPORTUNISM on display by the left in this instance, and America needs to stand up and take notice.

    Re: Which political lean is most responsible for the shooting in Charleston?

    Roof's own psychological instability is the primary culprit. His radical racist ideology, paired with his drug abuse, was simply the catalyst it apparently needed to explode into homicidal violence.

    That ideology, while undeniably "Right Wing," was not, however, in any sense representative of mainstream American "Conservatism," or even necessarily "Southern" American culture. To the contrary, it was mostly representative of the kind of fringe extremism that Neo-Nazi groups and the modern KKK tend to espouse. It also - as evidenced by Roof's admiration for Apartheid South Africa and Rhodesia - appears to have been international in basis, rather than distinctly regional.

    I'm sorry, but in light of those facts, anyone who tries to spin this as being something that Southern culture or modern Conservativism need to "re-evaluate," "answer," or "apologize" for either doesn't have the slightest clue what they're talking about, or is simply blatant partisan slime attempting to capitalize on tragedy as a means of scoring petty political points. Quite frankly, they should be ashamed of themselves as such.
