Posted on 08/15/2012 9:09:28 AM PDT by Palmetto Patriot
Two people, including one security guard, were shot at the office of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., this morning.
The police are investigating this incident, said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement on the shooting. Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.
The shooter was also reportedly shot, according to a local news report, which notes that the FBI is at the scene.
The Family Research Council is a socially-conservative non-profit that participates in cultural debates about abortion, traditional marriage, and religious liberty.
Yeah, it always comes down to Christ vs anti-Christ, ultimately.
But, it’s kinda fun to engage them once in a while and logically force them to be consistent in their espoused beliefs and show them the contradiction. But stand back, sometimes their heads explode.
Usually in their argument for relativism, they appeal to some form of absolute (consensus), and pointing that out to them leaves them spluttering.
By now in the Gabby Gifford shooting -
The democrats and the 99.9% democrat media were all blaming Sarah Palin and the “targets” (map symbols) on her website
6’3” and 250 pounds - sounds like he was better with eating food that using a handgun
Somewhere on this thread someone posted he had multiple guns and mucho ammo
I am surprised they did not use Ryan’s photograph and Obama’s baby pictures.....
SPLC IS A HATE GROUP, Biden and his speech yesterday promoted the hate which in turn promoted this violence
No, no, no. The correct MSM agitprop terminology is "high capacity magazine." Learn it, know it, love it, as this is where they are directing their future mission. When they start ululating "Whyyyyyyy should anyone be allowed to own a high capacity magazeeeeeeeeeen????" Then the correct response is: "Ask the Korean shop owners in Los Angeles why."
then these nuts and that site should be reported and if TV Pundits actually get some balls then they need to tell their viewers.
Also i’m off to CNN, NBC, ABC etc and asking them in no uncertain terms as to why they ae not reporting all of this and linking this to certain speeches which have been made recently and why they refuse to show the hate from the radical hate bigoted groups on the left.
their sites and their conversations have been getting more and mroe radical recently and our side have never done a damn thing, people like Hannity, talk radio, perino , Rove etc have left social issues alone thus letting the left spew their hate, their bigotry and their violence.
MMMMMMM DOJ, HOLDER WHERE ARE YOU?
Spoken like a true National Socialist! It's amazing - the same idiots that called our former President "Bushitler" and yet, they are the ones emulating the SS stormtroopers in NAZI Germany.
“Look what you made me do!” defense in 3...2....
"A suspect in the shooting of a security guard at the headquarters of a downtown D.C. conservative Christian lobbying firm criticized the group's anti-gay stance before opening fire, a source tells ABC7."
this alleged black man heard Joe Biden's warning that the conservatives want to put him in chains, and he decided to fight back.
...(Now taking off the lefty, hand-wringing, MSM hat I found in the gutter recently)
Yep and Holder’s ‘people’ in the black panthers that he refused to prosecute are now calling on blacks to kill white babies and people at the RNC convention. They want blood in the streets. I truly think we need to prosecute the SPLC for inciting this violence.
Well this pretty much assures that he won't be prosecuted by Holder's "justice" department.
Let me guess the shooter was wearing a Obama T-shirt or something like that, that is why we haven’t seen any pictures of the shooter.
they labeled it “domestic terrorism” so they can cover it up.
I thought it was the end of the beginning.
Or perhaps it is just the middle of the middle?
This is a political shooting, not a shooting of random people by an unhinged person.
This shooter is probably unhinged as well, but he was directed to the target by the drumbeat from the “gay” community that the eeeeevil FRC was a receiver of money from Chick-fil-a.
These Humanist’s are in fact dangerous, when their heads explode. Many of them can’t handle ANY conflicting facts, and if their world view is under threat, they will lash out.
I’ve always enjoyed getting them to say that “There is no truth”, I, of course reply with “Is that true ?”
I think most are simply misguided. They don’t know the evil roots of their philosophy, and somehow find a small “safe place” where they feel the can belong.
You are correct with regards to the Christ Vs. Anti-Christ position.
Their Christ will be our anti-Christ, and given how institutionalized Satan has become, I’m afraid the logical extension of our current trajectory is inevitable.
Don’t forget the VA Tech dry run and the Ohio thing/bridge, etc.
Not surprised....we’ll see this more and more and more.
Our decent into armed Fiefdoms is coming quicker than I thought, though of course a few incidents don’t show a tidal wave just yet.
Heavily armed “loyal men” will be needed everywhere for even basic safety.
This is the very slow start.... 10 years... I pray we don’t have a flood.
I don't get that at all. Can anyone explain this connection, which appeared the same in the Sikh tragedy?
Ever considered that they may be paid agents of the left, or one of the campaigns, even? Do I need to say which one?
This photo is alleged to be Floyd Corkins of Herndon, VA, according to this post on Pundit Press: Who is Floyd Corkins?
I agree. When O loses, he and his group are going to seek revenge. That is my prediction for post election. These are mean people
Peter Parker did the same thing in the new Spider-Man movie to sneak into a research facility.
As they should. If nothing else - it's definitely a hate crime.
Someone kick his butt so hard he almost lost his britches?! /s That is not a pretty sight!
NBC and ABC7 identified him as 28-year-old Floyd Corkins of Virginia. Fox News obtained photos of the man, apparently taken by a witness, that show the suspect in handcuffs and his bloody shirt fully unbuttoned.
The Associated Press reports that according to DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier, a man, later identified as Floyd Corkins, of Herndon, Va., walked into the Family Research Council and was confronted by a security guard. He then shot the guard.
AP reports the guard and others wrestled the man to the ground before FBI agents took him into custody.
According to Ryan Reilly of TPM, Corkins is not registered to vote in Virginia.
What do his fb and mylife pages say? (for those of us who don’t do Facebook)
MSNBC Klux Klan Family Research Council Shooter ID’d As Floyd Corkins, 28
An ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER at Tuckahoe Elementary School in Arlington. Confirmed through two law enforcement sources by NBC News. A photographer who saw the suspect being arrested describes him as a 6-foot-3, 250-pound black male.
"According to the news, he just bought the gun five days ago. He allegedly had thirty rounds of ammunition and Chick-Fil-A leaflets. He also said that he did it because of the FRC's stance on gay marriage."
He must be a radical, left wing homosexual?
Updated: Family Research Council shooting suspect may be licensed Virginia school teacher
It’s possible the licensed teacher is the suspect’s Father. There’s a Virginia elementary school teacher with a similar name, but older, pictured here. There’s also a blocked Facebook page associated with George Mason that’s been circulating, which I haven’t linked as no information is available there, other than the name, Floyd Corkins.
At Tuckahoe Elementary School our Physical Education program is one in which students are introduced to a wide range of skill themes and movement concepts (building a foundation). Each class is comprised of health and skill-related fitness activities. We provide a learning environment that is focused on Tuckahoes three Rs (rights, respect and responsibility). This enables all students to achieve success. The goal of Tuckahoes Physical Education program is for all students to appreciate and participate in physical activities for a lifetime.
According to web service, “My Life,” there is a Floyd L Corkins in Herndon, VA who would appear to be the appropriate age. A Floyd Corkins of Herndon, VA has been tentatively ID’d as the suspect.
Floyd L Corkins is related to Jacqueline Corkins, who is 52 years old and lives in Herndon, VA. Floyd L Corkins is also related to Floyd Corkins, who is 55 years ...

local TV news just reported the parents of the shooter were retired mil and his father was the teacher.
Sounds like it. I wonder what his Kos and DU screenname was and if he had a page on Obama’s campaign site?

I’ll save http://t.co/DDIcUhvw the trouble: Floyd Corkins isn’t registered to vote in Virginia.
"The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard," a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot. Sources also said the gunman may have been carrying a bag from Chick-fil-A, the embattled fast-food restaurant whose president came under fire from gay activists after he said he did not agree with same-sex marriage.
Sources told Fox New that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, "Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for."
Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism, although James McJunkin, the head of the FBIs Washington Field Office, said authorities do not yet know the gunman's motive."
UH....I'd say his motives were quite clear. He's homo, and he will not "tolerate" anyone disagreeing with him.
Phys ed teacher?
Doesn’t look like the guy in cuffs.

Well, maybe. Take off the glasses and shave off the facial hair.
...so in other words, do their best to bury any leftist motive, probably release the perp because he is part of that “largest civilian army in history” Obama was talking about [/sarcasm]
OK, that explains the picture differences.
Looks like a bicycle cop and his ride in the pic. I was trying to figure out the helmet and then saw the bike.
Thanks for the update I have been trying to read every single post to keep up. I hope they nail this guy to the wall. These little gay nazi’s need to be sent a lesson. I won’t hold my breath with Obama and holder in charge.
Looks like they’ve whitened it as much as they could.
Ha! One of this dirt bags 12 Facebook friends is a girl named Reagan Chaney. No doubt a Lefty, can you imaging the ridicule she must get from friends about her name.
Thank God wing nut liberals are as ineffective at mass shootings as they are at being productive members of society or this could have ended more tragically. What an abject failure...When these guys finally get violent en masse it will not end well for them.
