    Salon gun control loon blames Dallas rightwingers for JFK shooting

    Salon (the “real” news website, not the hilarious parody Twitter account), published an infuriating piece on the Kennedy assassination that adds some unbelievably off-kilter context to the president's murder: It was all the fault of gun-toting right-wing proto-Tea Partiers.That’s the argument put forth by Heather Digby Parton, a progressive opinion blogger and winner of the 2014 Hillman Prize for Opinion and Analysis. Texas conservatives were very mad at President Kennedy, she writes, and then he was killed, and now we should be afraid that maybe conservatives are trying to hurt President Obama. What else are they going to do with their guns?


    Read Digby’s history lesson for yourself:


    "The morning of Nov. 22, the Dallas Morning News featured a full-page ad “welcoming” the president to Dallas.  After a preamble in which they proclaimed their fealty to the Constitution and defiantly asserted their right to be conservative, they demanded to be allowed to “address their grievances.”  They posed a long series of “when did you stop beating your wife” questions asking why Kennedy was helping the Communist cause around the world. ...


    You get the drift. And you probably recognize the tone. The subject may have changed somewhat but the arrogant attitude combined with the aggrieved victimization is a hallmark of right-wing politics even today.


    As we all know, later that day the president was gunned down in Dealey Plaza. The entire world was shocked and traumatized by that event and the course of history was changed."


    Maybe Digby missed something. I'm not sure—I'm not a Hillman Prize winner, or anything—but wasn't Kennedy murdered by a self-described Marxist and communist sympathizer who had attempted to defect to the Soviet Union? Lest you think I'm exaggerating the extent to which Digby lays the blame for the Kennedy assassination on the right, she actually chides Second Amendment supporters for organizing at the site of the assassination, a place that "should be a monument to right-wing ignominy," according to Digby. (As if limited-government and gun-rights supporters had killed the president, rather than a Marxist assassin!)

    Bonus idiocy; Digby even  cites to ."..the anti-communist fanatic Gen. Edwin Walker, a zealot so far to the right that he even believed Eisenhower was a communist, fanned the flames of anti-Kennedy hatred."


    Did,  or did she not,  know that Lee Harvey Oswald attempted to murder General Walker, with a rifle shot through his home's window , just months before Oswald killed Kennedy?


    So....the rightwing nut General Walker is responsible for JFK's death, even though JFK's assassin, a leftwing nut,  tried to kill Walker, too!!!

    Facts cannot stop the emotionally charged progressive. Their hate cannot be contained by logic and perspective. You can tell them that the head of the UN IPCC saild climate change is not about climate, its about redistribution of wealth and you are called a denier and that you are concocting wild-a55 conspiracies.

    I guess Lee Harvey Oswald was a time-traveler. Having been exposed to bible-toting, gun carrying, right wing Chirstians, he cleverly worked with Dick Cheney and Halliburton to create a time machine and assumed a false identity as a Marxist.

    Well, instead of going with a time travel conspiracy theory, to keep from accepting the reality that a fellow collectivist did it, deluded leftists went with an even less credible idea: JFK didnt want to fight in Vietnam, so the CIA and military committed treason and killed the President...

    Speaking of right wing Tea Party gun nuts....

    A Pennsylvania police chief says that a doctor undoubtedly saved lives after he shot a gunman who opened fire Thursday in an incident that left a hospital case worker dead.

    The gunman, Richard Plotts, of Upper Darby, opened fire at Mercy Elizabeth Hospital, just outside of Philadelphia, shortly after entering an office with the case worker, the Associated Press reports.

    Witnesses said that when they opened the office door after hearing shouting, they saw Plotts with a gun. The witnesses closed the office door and called 911. Minutes later, they heard gun shots.

    Plotts had shot and killed a 53 year-old female case worker. He sustained several critical gun shot wounds himself from the gun of a hospital psychiatrist. The psychiatrist suffered a graze wound to his head. Plotts was taken into custody.

    “Without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives,” said Yeadon police chief Donald Molineux, according to the Associated Press.

     Did the doctor ignore the sign on the hospital door that 'weapons are not allowed'?
