Family Research Council Shooting Unleashes Conservative Vengeance on Twitter
The Daily Beast ^ | Aug 16 2012 | David Sessions

Posted on 08/16/2012 5:51:34 AM PDT by scottjewell

A gunman who allegedly targeted the Family Research Council for its anti-gay marriage views gave right-wing pundits a chance to give liberals—who often are quick to attribute violence to conservative ideology—a taste of their own medicine.

Its amazing how even when a Liberal attempts to murder people in a conservative Christian organization, the story can somehow be spun into one of “conservative vengance.” Reporters need to take a break from the politics of everything and get a little perspective.

Right - the media are trying to turn this around as an example of conservative outrage unleashed but the true story is why there would be this sense of outrage and justice deferred in the first place. Imagine if the shooter had been able to carry out his true plans....They would be hard-pressed for spin in that scenario.

FOX News, conservative talk radio should give potential new media entrepreneurs a clue that a huge segment of our citizens want and are willing to support media not geared towards communism.

I am amazed more have not seen the tea leaves. We need more conservative outlets to balance the Marxists in the entrenched MSM (Mainly Socialist Media) and I would bet they would be very successful.

Look what just happened in the Chick-Fil-A dust up. The SSAD (Same Sex Attraction Disorder) crowd made a noise 10X their actual size but conservatives made a much more powerful noise with their quiet, peaceful, monetary support for what is right.

We can no longer afford the brilliance of the founders and the founding fathers being marginalized by the MSM.

” - - - A gunman who allegedly targeted the Family Research Council - - - “

From time to time it is useful to pause and reflect upon where we were as a Society in the recent past, and compare that to where we are today.

For example, the above quote would have been unthinkable back when Dan Quale was GHWB’s Vice President.

“Both” Political Parties strived back then to prove each news cycle how THEY were the true “FAMILY VALUES” Political Party.

Today, the Southern Poverty Research Council and the Huffington Post label the above mentioned Family Research Council as a “Hate Group.”

The trend is not the friend of the basic building block of our Society - - - The Family.

An LGBT is, by any non-PC definition, a person with a mental derangement and inherently unstable.

I, having as much authority to name “hate groups” as the SPLC or HuffPo,

name the SPLC and HuffPo as “anti-Christian hate groups”.

In the end, remember something about reporters.

They are all union. What do you expect?

Funny, I haven’t heard much about this story where I’m at.

It’s “All Penn State, All Day”.

And people didn’t hear much about the attack on the San Francisco church some years ago.

Bias by omission.

Now, isn’t this guy David Sessions a slick, slimy bugger?

Moonbats and libnutz get caught flat footed and red handed, and what’s old Davy boy do?

“Now, now, now your VENGEANCE seeking right wingers, temper, temper. After all, its mostly your fault this guy went off in the first place.”

This is the first, slight turning of the screw. As time goes by, these barking moonbats will bark louder and stronger.

SPLC is a terrorist propaganda group who’s mission is disinformation aimed toward the destruction of western civilization and the USA.

Waiting for zero to give a press conference any moment condemning the violence.

PREDICTION:

As time goes on, watch to see if daily kaz, moveon.moonbat et al. start pushing the idea that the shooter was actually a tea party operative who put in about 6 mos. volunteering for queers to gain ‘street cred’, and then bought his chik fil a bag to make it look even better, and KNEW he was only going to ‘wing’ the guard and not kill anyone.

ALL JUST TO MAKE THE QUEER NATION LOOK BAD.

(I’ll fall down if this happens)

I don’t doubt it.

I just wish this reality of the anti-Christian agenda of the left would be brought to the fore and recognized by both sides.

They are defeated when exposed, just as darkness is always defeated by light.

Conspiracy theories are always rife - would not be surprised if something such as your scenario took hold.

When the kiss in did not work. The perverted homosexuals will switch to violence. I guess this is not behind closed doors.

Of course. Let's not over look the undescribed "Southern Poverty Law Center" is referred to in calling "Family Research Council" a "hate group" as if that's a justification.

The media story: right wing hate group deserved attack, crazed gun-loving conservatives demand vengeance. Obama shows no leadership on "his side" of the issue. Then it's buried.

Now imagine this was an attempted attack at a Planned Parenthood abortion mill... same coverage and political reaction I'm sure. /s

If the FRC incident had gone according to the plans of the attacker the MSM would be dancing for joy proclaiming that the FRC folks had it coming. Remember that rude fact .
