The narrative starts: Hateful conservatives to blame for Knoxville shooting
Oh boy. Here we go again. Just like we saw after the Oklahama City bombings w/ President Bill Clinton blaming “hate radio,” we’re seeing today from an assortment of deluded lefties a clear implication – and in some cases outright accusal – that the shooter who gunned down 8 at a Unitarian church in Knoxville, TN, killing 2, who was a fan of Sean Hannity and other popular right wing pundits was your typical ‘angry conservative just willing to explode into a fit of blinding rage.’
Heck, the KnoxNews itself gets in on the act here:
Police found right-wing political books, brass knuckles, empty shotgun shell boxes and a handgun in the Powell home of a man who said he attacked a church in order to kill liberals “who are ruining the country,” court records show.
Knoxville police Sunday evening searched the Levy Drive home of Jim David Adkisson after he allegedly entered the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church and killed two people and wounded six others during the presentation of a children’s musical.
Knoxville Police Department Officer Steve Still requested the search warrant after interviewing Adkisson. who was subdued by several church members after firing three rounds from a 12-gauge shotgun into the congregation.
Adkisson targeted the church, Still wrote in the document obtained by WBIR-TV, Channel 10, “because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country’s hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of media outlets.”
Obviously, this is a tragedy, and instead of trying to engage the far left in a discussion about the history of left wing terrorism (scroll) (since they seem hell-bent on painting all conservatives as nothing but right wing terrorists in training), let me just say that my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims. Thankfully Adkisson was tackled before he could shoot any more people.
