66. Loughners in training. Giffords' father said if she got hurt, it'd be by a Teabagger, since the...

Campaign against her was so vicious, even a black GOP official resigned because of intimidation at the time.

After she was shot, one of the shooting victims who protested a man yelling at a meeting about how Giffords' group should have been armed, was the one arrested and charged for disorderly conduct, not the belligerent bully.

Then came the call nationally from the right for her to give up her seat to someone who was competent, when the GOP has held wheelchair bound senile leaders in office for decades, or taken vacations for months on end.

From Sarah Palin's gunsights on Giffords' district after years of hate radio calling for all liberals to be killed, they achieved their aim, as a teabagger will likely take her seat. Stochastic terrorism works, and the thugs smell blood in the water of our consciousness. This won't stop.

From terrorist threats and acts against liberals nationally, Gabby's leaving is a victory for them. These are the same ilk that want to shoot immigrants from helicopters like hunters shoot wolves in Alaska. Like those who kill on video games and earn points, after a time, there is little difference between the game and the fantasy and the act itself. Like watching snuff porn, imagination will no longer satisfy, it will have to be carried out in real life.

Jesus said that what we feel in our hearts is what we will be condemned for, long before the act wanted is committed, or even if it is not. On some level, these people with the help of the GOP are making their reality ours, and we are being led like lambs to the slaughter.

Like cheering the death of the little nine year old girl by Loughner, posters on Sarah Palin's page said:

"It's ok. Christina Taylor Green was probably going to end up a left wing bleeding heart liberal anyway. Hey, as 'they' say, what would you do if you had the chance to kill Hitler as a kid? Exactly."

Written by young people, taken down eventually, but left there long enough for many of them to still feel the rush of victory over the evil liberals. The link to the blog with the screenshots has now been deleted by AOL, but the tenor of the time is described halfway down the page here at this link:

But, nothing to worry about. We have the editor of a paper in Atlanta calling for Obama to be killed, a child's pet slaughtered and other acts of terrorism. All of these people are rightwing, and it'll be worse as the election nears.

Just repeat after me:

There is no connection between speech and action, there is no such thing as a mob mentality. 'It can't happen here.' 'I try to believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'
