Death Threat Against Tucson Tea Party Leader at ABC Town Hall Event

Posted by Dave Blount at January 15, 2011 6:24 PM

The moment Clarence Dupnik attempted to blame the Tucson Massacre on conservatives and denounced the people of his state, the tragic event began to turn into a carnival. Obama coming to Tucson to launch his reelection campaign from a pool of blood — amid raucous cheers, souvenir T-shirts, and boos for Republicans — turned it into a three-ring circus. Bring in the dreadful Christiane Amanpour to host a local town hall meeting, and you have something that makes Mardi Gras look somber and dignified.

A local ABC affiliate reports on the behavior of moonbat J. Eric Fuller, who was wounded by Loughner:

When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated. Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, "You're dead."
When State Rep. Terri Proud (R-Tucson) rose to explain and clarify current and proposed gun legislation in the state, several people groaned or booed her. One of those booing, according to several witnesses, was Fuller. Witnesses sitting near Fuller told KGUN9 News that Fuller was making them feel very uncomfortable.
The event wrapped up a short time later. Deputies then escorted Fuller from the room. As he was being led off, Fuller shouted loudly to the room at large. Several witnesses said that what they thought they heard him shout was, "You're all whores!"
A Pima County Sheriff's spokesman told KGUN9 News that they charged Fuller with one count of threats and intimidation, and said they plan to charge him with at least one count of disorderly conduct. Humphries told KGUN9 News that he does plan to press those charges.
The irony could not be more pointed, or painful. One of the issues discussed in the town hall meeting was the question of why no police or mental health professionals had ever intervened with Jared Lee Loughner, despite his increasingly bizarre behavior that had included disruptive outbursts.

Congratulations to ABC. People are finally going to watch the floundering Amanpour's This Week program. But good luck getting anyone to swallow the preposterous "mainstream" media narrative that this horrible story is about Sarah Palin and the Tea Party encouraging violence. Even ABC's own affiliates are starting to choke on the irony.

J. Eric Fuller: like Loughner, an unhinged moonbat.
