Sonic Overload 1/10/11

I don’t even know where to begin with the recent events in Tucson, AZ—the assassination attempt on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords while she was meeting with constituents outside a supermarket. She survived even though she was shot in the head but she has a long recovery ahead. Among the six people killed were a federal judge and a 9 year old girl who was born on 9/11/01. I don’t have the exact number of wounded people but I did say 11 on the show.

Forgive my rambling at the start of the show—my thoughts probably aren’t articulated particularly well. We still don’t know much about the motives, background or mental state of the suspect, Jared Loughner. People on the left are trying to tie him in with the visceral, violent rhetoric that’s emerged from the likes of Sarah Palin, various talk hosts and politicians, to say nothing of the ‘tea party’ crazies. There’s been an attempt to say that people on the left engage in the same kind of rhetoric and that Loughner is a leftist because of having the Communist Manifesto and “Mein Kampf” by Hitler on his reading list. Right-wingers have been attempting to paint Hitler as being a left-wing extremist, which is absurd. Beyond absurd, in fact. All I know is when Palin circulates a chart that has gun-sights on various Congressional seats up for grabs, including Giffords, we’ve got a problem. I occasionally fly off the handle with my viewpoints but I’m not showing up at political rallies with guns or engaging in any sort of intimidation or physical threats. And the people I mentioned have a lot to answer for.

You get the idea. I don’t see the same vitriol from the left as I do from the right. That’s a simplification, perhaps, but I’m sticking with my opinion... my heart goes out to the victims and their families.
