James Eric Fuller was one of the 19 people that were shot in Tuscon when a madmen unloaded his gun on Congress woman Giffords and many of her supporters. Within hours of the senseless shooting spree, many on the Left (including Fuller) decided to blame the Right for stirring up the violence even though the shooter had absolutely no connections to conservative beliefs. Sadly the blame game has led to Fuller being arrested Saturday for shouting out death threats to a Tea Party member.
Saturday, at a town hall meeting of victims and eyewitnesses of the attack in Tuscon, Fuller reportedly yelled out “You’re dead!” at Tuscon Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries. Fuller was arrested by police who charged Fuller with making threats, intimidation and disorderly conduct and then involuntarily committed him for a psychiatric evaluation.
Fuller is a 63 year old Democratic activist and former campaign volunteer for Congresswoman Giffords. On Thursday it was clear he was buying the Left’s blame game when he told Democracy Now:
It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. – Fuller
Fuller bought into the lies that conservatives and tea party folks spurred the Tuscon violence on. And Fuller believed it so much that he thought he should scream death threats at a public event. In fact the Saturday town hall meeting was being filmed for an ABC News special. When police escorted Fuller out he yelled,
You’re all whores!
It will be interesting to see how the media treats this story. Will Fuller be shown grace since he took bullets in Tuscon, or will people finally realize that the Left’s despicable attacks this week is what is actually stirring up hate and potential violence?
