Breaking: Tucson Tea Party Leader Threatened At ABC Taping,
Gateway Pundit ^ | Jan 15, 2011 | Jim Hoft

Breaking: Tucson Tea Party Leader Threatened At ABC Taping, Audience Member Screams: “Trent Humphries You’re Dead!”

While Trent was speaking at the event, an audience member screamed, “Trent Humphries, you’re dead!”

ABC News held a town hall event today in Tucson, Arizona. Local officials, friends and heroes were at the event. News anchor Christiane Amanpour was the host. The segment will air tomorrow. ABC gathered members from the Tucson community to discuss the tragic shooting last Saturday that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and left 6 people dead.

State Representative Terri Proud was at the event sitting between Trent and the violent audience member. Terri was there to speak about the local gun laws. She described the scene to me just minutes ago:

Trent Humphries, the Pima County tea party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy… While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”

ABC News might not even show it.

No biggie.

Its not like threats against members of Congress is newsworthy or anything.

On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”

I wonder if he was shouting at Amanpour.

Ah the gentle understanding left! This is the guy that blamed his being shot on the right and the Tea Party. Way to go jerk! Will the press downplay this? You bet!

Look for leftie pundits and the MSM (I know, I know - they're the same thing) to blame this on the Tea Party. They'll say something like "You guys started this", or "What do you expect in this climate of hate?"

Feel free to fill in the blanks. We all know their templates by now.

Actually, if he was one of the people shot, I bet they play it up, from the point of view he is justified.

Here’s a link to the article on azcentral.com. I’ve been feeling really weird about this guy from the moment I heard his story. I wonder if anyone has actually checked the facts of his account.

“You're all whores.” Why did he single out Ms. Amanpour? I thought she was only a B and not a whore. Before I decide I need to hear the opinions of Sheriff Dipshit and view the footage tomorrow on ABC This Week.

Trent Humphries, you’re dead!
I’m not dead.
Yes, you are.
I am not.
Well, you will be soon, you’re very ill.
I’m getting better.
No you’re not, you’ll be stone dead in a moment.

This may have broken on Fox News, but they sure buried who the perp was, very deep in the story.

You’d think it was newsworthy that the perp was one of the shooting victims—the one who blamed the shootings on Palin, Beck, and Rush. But you’d have to read this news release very carefully even to suspect that.

KGUN had a news crew at the meeting so they may show the video during their 5pm or 10pm newscast, which means the video should be posted on their site later this evening.

Fuller, who works as a signature collector for political initiatives, was about 10 to 15 feet away from Giffords, talking to her volunteers, when the shots erupted on Jan. 8. He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn't have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital.

You know - that is weired: he was shot, decided he couldn't do anything to help others, and drove himself to the hospital ??? With a gun shot wound ?

Well FOX has footage of Fuller at the shooters house. Some BS about healing with them.

If Fox tries to bury this they need to be called on it.
