In the wake of the Arizona shooting some in the liberal and conservative media seem to be throwing gasoline on the flames. You hear Democrats and Republicans blaming each other for the terrible acts of an out of control individuals that had views that were unacceptable to most people in either party.
You hear people blaming the Republicans and Sarah Palin for her Cross Hair Map.
During the 2010 elections, on her Facebook Account Sarah Palin had posted a Cross-hair map of states and candidates to beat in the elections. And the Democrats have been using Bulls-eye maps to target states and candidates to beat in the elections.
The above map targeting Republicans was on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) website.
You hear people blaming President Obama for his Speech such as those listed by Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit in his short list of Obama’s “greatest hits”
** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”
As conservative or liberal kids there is only one map that we should honor and that map is the map of the United States. We cannot fall victim to the hatred being delivered by any politician, newscaster, columnist or blogger. As kids we must be able to recognize that there will always be hatred in one form or another. As kids we must be aware of what is going on around us but we must also understand that this tragic shooting in Arizona was not the fault of Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, the Democrats, Republicans, Conservatives or Liberals. This shooting was a violent act committed by one lunatic shooter a 22 year old whose name I will not even mention for he has already gotten too much press.
May God Bless America and tone down the Rhetoric.
