Get ready to be seeing a lot of this guy on MSNBC in the very near future.
A wounded survivor of the Tuscon shooting that critically injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck, and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.Wait, what?!
“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.
“Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls,” he added, referring to the death of Christina Taylor Green.
Fuller, a 63-year-old veteran, had campaigned for Giffords during her re-election and was at the supermarket for her “Congress on your corner” event.Clearly, Fuller is just one sandwich short of a picnic. Unless randomly spraying gunfire into a crowd is now considered tantamount to vigorously exercising your Second Amendment rights.
He was shot in the knee and the back in the tragedy that left six people dead and 13 wounded.
“I was in shock, and I just wandered out into the parking lot,” Fuller recalled. “And a woman was pushing a cart full of groceries out there. And I said to her, ‘I’ve been shot.’ And she just looked at me like I was crazy.”
Earlier this week, in an interview with CBS News, Fuller didn’t go as far to point fingers. Instead, he called the shooter, Jared Loughner, a “madman.”
“I hadn’t ever had any kind of trauma experience at that level before,” he told CBS. “And I didn’t know — I didn’t quite know how to react. I felt like we were in for more, and possibly to be given a coup de grace by this madman that was so vigorously exercising his Second Amendment rights.”
Seriously, how is anyone even supposed to respond to this kind of idiocy?
Fuller should take a deep breath and read WaPo's in-depth profile of Jared Loughner - then remind us again how Palin, Boehner, Beck or Angle had anything at all to do with Loughner's rampage.
Get a clue, moron.
