In light of the D.C. shootings yesterday, trust a liberal to get out in front of this with a political agenda, that is as incorrect as it is revolting in this time of loss. Nevertheless, D.C. mayor Vincent Gray blames the shootings on, believe it or not, the sequester.
Via The Washington Times;
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said he wondered if budget cuts had something to do with a gunman getting onto the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, killing 12 before being killed himself.“As I look at, for example, sequestration, which is about saving money in the federal government being spent, have we somehow skimped on what would be available for projects like this and then we put people at risk,” Mr. Gray said on CNN’s “New Day” on Tuesday morning.
The shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords immediately had liberals running to Tea Party blame, which turned out to be incorrect as well as targeting Sarah Palin because she wanted conservatives to 'target' districts for Republican wins. Again, grossly inaccurate and politically motivated. Oh, and morally wrong in addition to factually wrong.
Liberals it seems, can't let a tragedy go to waste. Most conservatives won't blame this on say violent video games or other conservative concerns the way liberals jump to conclusions. We tend to realize that this is the act of a sick mind (or minds).
But Liberals are all to eager to cast blame in conservative directions because they know they won't generally be called out on their vapid accusations by a tacitly complicit media. There's no cost to throwing out unfounded accusations for them so they feel emboldened to spout ridiculousness. That's not changing any time soon, which is unfortunate because it is politics at its worst.
