Seems like all the “hate” is coming from the left. Lets face facts, “HATE” is not the issue. SELF – CONTROL and discipline IS.
There are plenty of feelings. Who cares about FEEEEEEEEEEEEEElings!!!!?
I sure don’t. If you HATE me, I don’t care. It’s what ACTIONS you take that matter to me. Speech is a LIBERTY that is an American virtue. Why?
Do kids get asked WHY? in school? Have they gone through the mental gyrations and argued the points? Our schools are not teaching kids HOW to think anymore but rather WHAT to think. But that’s another topic.
Freedom of speech is important, however, THREATS are actionable. Thats what makes THREATENING speech different from your everyday exchange of information or ideas and concepts.
When once moves from the EXCHANGE of IDEAS, even ones that are OBJECTIONABLE to some, to another level that is ACTIONABLE, that is the LINE where THAT speech becomes an action.
The threat to life is a form of speech that is portending ACTION. These can’t be taken lightly in any circumstance. It used to be – over 25 years ago – that if one spoke of suicide that one would have the potential for arrest and institutionalized until the psychiatrist could assure the public that the person was no longer a threat to himself or anyone else. The logic there is, if that person is able to make a threat against his own life, then taking someone else’s life would not be a far stretch.
The left seems to suffer from many an ailment. One, inability to have control over ones own actions and two, the inability to fully reason a subject. I dare say that facts seem to elude them and chronology and history are irrelevant. Feelings are expressed without discipline. They seem to have issues with self control. Many of them are on drug like Prozac and other known agents of psychosis producing pharmaceuticals. It would be interesting to find out if this man was on one of these drugs or maybe some other drugs with similar effects for his leg wound.
All these years of the left screaming ” JUST DO WHAT FEEEEEEELS GOOD”, has brought up multiple generations, now, of people who have no discipline or self control. These are some of the unfortunate examples.
How many other unfortunate things have occurred in your life, because of lack of discipline or self control, whether it was your own lack of control or someone else’s? How many a divorce or “accident?” occurred because of unrequited FEEEEELINGS of this or that? Ask yourself if this is not just the overt examples of a society that has lost the courage to talk openly about discriminating between right and WRONG.
Tucson Shooting Victim Arrested For Threatening Tea Party
In the wake of the horrific Tucson shootings politicians have asked that rhetoric be “toned down,” and this is a reminder that that request applies to people on both sides of the political spectrum. James Eric Fuller, a victim of the Tucson shooting, was arrested yesterday for making a death threat at Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries. Fuller was in the front row as Humphries was interviewed on ABC’s “This Week,” and yelled “you’re dead” after Humphries suggested conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried.
Fuller had campaigned for Giffords during her re-election, and told reporters after the shooting, “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target.” He had been shot in the knee during Giffords’s “Congress On Your Corner” event, which he told the Times he attended to “give her a boost and to protect her from the Tea Party crime syndicate and to shout them down.” He has reportedly been calming himself after the shooting by writing out the Declaration of Independence, which he memorized 30 years ago.
Humphries hasn’t exactly taken the high road after the shooting either, telling the Daily News that worry over rhetoric is just “political gamesmanship,. He said, “The real case is that she [Giffords] had no security whatsoever at this event. So if she lived under a constant fear of being targeted, if she lived under this constant fear of this rhetoric and hatred that was seething, why would she attend an event in full view of the public with no security whatsoever?”
Fuller was arrested on misdemeanor disorderly conduct and threat charges, and was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation. As he was being led out he reportedly yelled, “What’s the matter-with you-whores!” Humphries said of the threat, “This is another sad piece to add to an already tragic set of events. My hope continues to remain that we as a community be allowed the ability to heal and focus on those things that will best help our city and its citizens recover from this deadly tragedy.”

If Humphries decides not to press charges, the charges will be dropped, Deputy Jason Ogan told KNXV in Phoenix.
In the days since last week’s shooting, Fuller has been spotted around town, visiting with reporters at the scene of the crime. Fuller also reportedly attempted to visit the parents of Jared Lee Loughner, showing up unannounced at their home on Friday. Though the Loughners were not home, Fuller took some time to speak to a local news crew.
