99. I don't believe a work you write.
Let me answer some of these points. I apologize that they're not in order.

You false patriots who bring assault rifles to political rallies, you hack politicians and media personalities who lied through your stinking teeth about "death panels" and "Obama is coming for your guns" and "He isn't a citizen" and "He's a secret Muslim" and "Sharia Law is coming to America," you who spread this bastard gospel and you who swallowed it whole, I am talking to you, because this was your doing just as surely as it was the doing of the deranged damned soul who pulled the trigger. The poison you injected into our culture is deeply culpable for this carnage.

Where are people bringing guns to apolitical rally; I also like how you use the scary word 'assualt rifles'? I own an arsenal but I would never bring any weapon to a political rally. I don't bring weapons anywhere but the range. You are implying that not only at this rally but at others, people are bringing guns. If that is truly the case and to be honest I don't believe it but nevertheless, where is security? If I saw someone with a gun at any gathering, I'd contact security or an officer if present ASAP and I would also get the people I love there out ASAP as well.

You who worship Jesus at the top of your lungs (in defiance of Christ's own teachings on the matter of worship, by the way) helped put several churchgoers into their graves and into the hospital. You who shriek about the sanctity of marriage helped cut down a man who was about to be married. You who crow with ceaseless abandon about military service and the nobility of our fighting forces helped to critically wound the wife of a Naval aviator who fought for you in a war. You who hold September 11 as your sword and shield helped put a little girl born on that day into the ground.

You helped. Yes, damn you, you helped.

The "mainstream" media is already working overtime playing up the "Disturbed loner" angle with all their might. There is no doubt, from the available evidence, of Mr. Loughner's transformation into a disturbed individual. But here's the funny part: all the crazy crap he spewed, about the gold standard (a favorite of Glenn Beck, the master of Fox "News" he can sell his gold scam to suckers) and government mind control and everything else before going on his rampage, is straight out of the Right-Wing Insanity Handbook. His personal YouTube ramblings were a mishmash of right-wing anti-government nonsense...the kind that attracts sick minds like Loughner, the kind that only reinforces their paranoia, the kind that finally pushes them over the brink and into the frenzy of violence that took place on Saturday. The kind that the likes of you have been happily spreading by the day.

It has been three days yet you have no problem casting aspersions everywhere you can to see if any stick. On top of that, I really object to your pseudo-intellectual writings. Do you have any proof at all or is it just 'feelings'? I'm sure I'm going to upset your Amen corner but too bad. I hate like hell to admit it but his (the shooter, not Will) ramblings aren't conservative, they're far left wing gibberish.

We need to eliminate this us VS them mentality. We need to work together and writings such as this, prevent this much needed dialog. Conservatives have a few great ideas, I just can't think of one at the moment. Our side also has numerous great ideas as well as the fact that we do things such as provide hot food for the homeless as well as have a grammar school at our local shelter (Loafs and Fishes). I support these efforts whole hardheartedly and I think we need to get these things noticed so they get more donations.

William, I usually like what you write but I think you missed the bus on this one.
