Jane Fonda Blames Giffords Shooting on Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and the Tea Party
Jane Fonda has blamed Saturday's tragic shooting spree in Tucson, Arizona, on former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, and the Tea Party movement.
Obviously possessing no facts about the alleged shooter, the liberal actress and activist tweeted the following moments ago:
Actually, Giffords is not a Progressive. Wikipedia lists her as part of the Blue Dog Coalition.
But that wasn't Fonda's only mistake, for moments later she added:
It would be nice if Fonda knew how to spell Beck's first name, but since she's likely never seen his show or read anything he's written, it's not surprising.
Actually, she's so clueless about the proper spelling of his name that she moments later tried to tweet him again misspelling Glenn:
Nice job, Jane. You're quite a rocket scientist.
Alas, she wasn't done, for moments later Fonda doubled down:
To be sure, the Left's predictable and groundless finger-pointing whenever these kinds of incidents happen in our nation is not at all surprising. As Matt Lewis observed at Politics Daily, the Netroots are way ahead on this blame Palin meme.
Yet, from what we can glean concerning alleged shooter Jared Lee Loughner, he doesn't at all fit the right-wing mold.
A video that he posted at his YouTube channel features a flag burning, certainly not what one would expect from a conservative. Loughner also listed his favorite books including "Mein Kampf" and "The Communist Manifesto."
Liberals love to claim Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist Party were right-wing. However, as Hitler wanted total governmental control of industry and healthcare, his views were quite opposite of what conservatives in America currently stand for, especially Palin, Beck, and members of the Tea Party.
Of course, it is not all surprising liberal media members won't let such facts get in the way of their unfounded accusations.
After all, they never do.
