Yeah, Truth Is Definitely Stranger Than Fiction

Saturday, January 15, AD 2011

One of the Giffords shooting victims, James Eric Fuller, joined in with the attempt of the Left to blame the Giffords shooting on conservatives:  “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller, a former campaigner for Ariz. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, told Democracy Now. “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled.”

Today Mr. Fuller was arrested for making a death threat: 

Toward the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”

Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.

Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

Among the dignitaries at the town hall taping were Mayor Bob Walkup, U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and former Congressman Jim Kolbe.

All this is somewhat explicable when one reads up a bit more about Mr. Fuller.  Go here to do so.

For anyone still misguided enough to think conservative politics motivated Mr.  Loughner, here is a video he made last year at his community college.  I think it speaks for itself.

  • Even left-wing ditzes, like Loughner, know better than to try shoot up a GOP event. We can defend ourselves.

    Stick with murdering unborn babes, courageous ones.

  • Krugman and Olbermann need to take responsibility for this.

  • I don’t want to detract from this tragedy, but may I mention an off-topic subject.
    Our friends in Australia are suffering from the worst floods in living memory. Fully one third of Queensland – a huge area – is seriously affected. Brisbane in cleaning up after the floods peaked Thursday, and though not quite as bad as the floods of 1974 are the worst there since, I think, 1889 in its scale. The town of Grantham in the Lockyer Valley just west of Brisbane has been wiped off the map.
    New South Wales has alson been deluged, and Victoria has just faced its worst flooding, again in living memory.
    Remember our Aussies brothers & sisters in your prayers, as I’m sure we all are for those killed in Tucson.
    Thanks and God bless.

  • Prayers for the Aussies Don! I’ve been following the floods down there and some of the scenes have been just devastating.

  • How about this sick fool takes responsibility for himself?

  • Mr Fuller, look at the swinging watch. Listen to my voice. “I will not make inane comments about politics. I will not blame conservative individuals for mass murders. I will re-enlist so I can serve my country with a right attitude. I will blame the leftists and liberals who are really responsible for the moral and spiritual decay of this great nation….

  • The utter lack of coherence is striking!!! It isn’t rambling such as I run into from those living on the streets who have mental health issues. Here, there is a repetition of a central thesis – unconstitutionality of government actions to limit free speech, leading to genocide and his eventual homelessness – to each and every thought that seems to occur to him. E.g. He receives a “B” in a course he is calling “free speech” and this is implicit of a conspiracy to restrict his free speech and leads to his being “homeless.” I assume that, by “genocide,” he is suggesting that the community college is “murdering” the spirit of his generation.

    It is fascinating. It is frightening.

  • And unsurprisingly the hate goes on.

  • His tone almost suggests that he knows he’s making no sense to anyone. I don’t know if anyone else saw the interview with his high school girlfriend, but she said she thought it was likely he was faking the insanity. Granted, it’s been a few years since they were close and Loughner could’ve snapped in the interim, but it certainly gives one pause.
