Shorter Michelle Malkin

I shot the Arkansas Democrat Party chairman

  • Somebody sent me an email blaming my so-called ‘hate’ for this horrible act of violence against a Democrat Party liberal. Here is that person’s full name and unredacted email address.

    I knew him. He just died within the past hour. Still not known why the guy shot him, and the shooter is dead too, so we may never know.

    The shooter was obviously a liberal Democrat conspiring to make conservatives look bad. We’ll know for sure if he had lots of books by Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter planted around his house.

    As for Frau Malkin, I only have to say that life’s a bitch when your eliminationist rhetoric comes home to roost. We can’t say for 100% whether or not this fellow was shot because he was a Democrat. What we can say, though, is that people think you helped percipitate this because you spew hatred and eliminationist rhetoric against Democrats.

    I don’t think it’s an accident that Democratic people get shot and Unitarian Churches are assaulted when the same is not happening with conservatives and Republicans.

    Wow. From the comments (among others bragging about tracking him down):

    “Has anyone emailed greg? I did. I asked him why jumped to such a conclusion, he replied by calling Michelle an ethinic slur and was acting like an internet toughguy to me. Then I let him know that I know who he is (I just mentioned his mother’s name to him). What a surprise – his tough guy e-mails stopped.”

    Yea, nothing like dropping someone’s mom’s name. Jesus, what the fuck is wrong with these people?

    Now it all makes sense.

    Meanwhile, police would not say if the suspect was the same person who walked into a nearby Arkansas Baptist State Convention after the shooting with a gun, according to CNN affiliate KARK.

    The man was “white as a sheet,” convention official Dan Jordan said.

    “I’ve heard he said something do to about losing a job. … He didn’t threaten anyone.” The man left through the front door shortly afterward, he said.”

    He obviously meant to attack the Baptists and seek sanctuary at Democratic Headquarters, but he got confused.

    Brilliant observation from the comments:

    My first thought was how conservatives would be blamed as they were in the Oklahoma City bombing.

    IIRC, it was them dirty Ay-rabs who were blamed for OKC in the immediate aftermath. And even after McVeigh was captured, I don’t recall anyone “blaming” conservatives. At that point, it become another “isolated incident”, no?

    Standard wingnut philosophy: If you don’t like reality, just make up your own shit.

    Michele plays the preemptive victimization card very well. Why wait until you are accused before crying “PERSECUTION!” Larry Craig perfected this tactec in the 80′s. One of her fans might not even have done it. The odds are barely 50%.

    Sooner or later they’ll mess with the wrong mom. Mine established a grass-ass/rusty-lawnmower paradigm early in my life. I’ve tested it. She meant business.

    In conclusion, my Mom can kick any of their asses or their moms’ asses.

    Yes, although it does sound like someone jumped the gun, so to speak, accusing her of influencing the shooter. We may not ever find out what motivated him, though I have to admit that I always suspect eliminationists’ fans would be the first to go for a gun when something bad happens like losing their job (if that was the same guy).

    if he’s smart, the person whose address etc. wash published by Malkin has contacted the Police & FBI. I’d like t see her face (and that of the commenter who threatened him) when a SWAT Team breaks her/his door down and shoots their pets. That is just for starters.

    HTML – just logged back on – yes, he was owner of Gwatney Chevrolet in Jacksonville, home of GWATZILLA.

    I knew him from his days in the state senate and generally liked him – he was a smart guy with a good sense of humor, though we did go toe to toe a few times. Such a shame.

    I think someone upthread had it backwards. My understanding is that the shooter went to the state Baptist convention headquarters first; after the shooting at Dem headquarters the police chase started. Still not able to figure out why they shot the shooter.

    Here we go:

    Officers said they pursued a white male that fled the scene in a blue Dodge pickup truck. Authorities say the suspect apparently stole the truck which was parked nearby. Police say the suspect was apprehended and shot following a high-speed chase that stretched into Grant County, about 50 miles south of Little Rock. Little Rock police, Arkansas State Police, Grant County deputies and Sheridan police were all involved in the pursuit.

    The suspect managed to evade a roadblock near the Sheridan city limits. Officers in pursuit managed a maneuver to cause the suspect to lose control and stop his truck. Police say the suspect then fired two shots at a Grant County sheriff’s unit. Grant County deputies and Arkansas State Police troopers returned fire, wounding the suspect, Police say the 51-year-old suspect died.

    The latest update still seems to be a little confused on the details:

    Before the pursuit, Hastings said, witnesses reported that the suspect entered a nearby Arkansas Baptist State Convention after the shooting and pointed a gun at an employee.

    The man was “white as a sheet,” convention official Dan Jordan said.

    “I’ve heard he said something do to about losing a job. … He didn’t threaten anyone.” The man left through the front door shortly afterward, he said.

    That’s my understanding – the guy drove off after shooting Bill, so that was before. The Baptist State Convention HQ is about five or six blocks up the same street as party HQ.

    The Baptist State Convention HQ is also on the next block from where I’m sitting. I’m pretty creeped out.

    If the shooter had any prior connection with the Democratic headquarters, he would have been identified by now.

    It could quite well have been an ex-employee in Bill’s Chevvy dealership, and probably a wingnut too. Lets be honest, you don’t go shoot your old boss because they fired you unless you REALLY hate their guts.

    If so, expect any political aspect to be played down, or outright denied.

    It does look like some form of personal grudge, because the target was definitely Bill.

So, in that respect, there is much hostility on both sides. I will venture to say, this kind of stuff will continue…unfortunately.”

    Sorry, I don’t know how to blockquote or whatever. This is a comment from Malkin’s site, and I do not get this. You are waaayyy seriously overinvolved in “conservatism” or “liberalism” or politics or, well, anything, if you hear something like this and get to a place where you can provide some sort of explanation for it based on how someone votes or thinks or feels. I mean, the whole “I wouldn’t do it or anything, but I can definitely see it”? Whoa.

So if some 61 year old lady with a Midwestern accent randomly stops you and with unblinking eye contact calmly says: “You better watch yourself, mister, or your ass will be grass and I’ll be a rusty lawnmower.” Well, first of all that’s my Mom and tell her I said “hey.” Then I’d suggest quick agreement and retreat because I don’t know what sort of quickdraw items she keeps in that fanny pack.

    I’m sorry. Little confused here.

    “The responsibility rests with the shooter”?

    Is anybody seriously arguing that the criminal is not responsible for the crime? I mean, I know people serving life in Pelican Bay, and they wouldn’t question that assertion.

    I think what we’re talking about is influence, the part around the margins where the pathetic fuck was pointed at the perceived root cause of his suffering.

    And if you want to deny that doesn’t exist, fine, but you better be prepared to be consistent all the way down the line. ‘Cause it either does or it doesn’t. It either always applies, or it never does…

    I didn’t know Mr. Gwatney personally, but I knew several people who had worked in the Democratic HQ office with him, and they are all personally moved by what’s happened.

    I didn’t know what to think, but I started to wrap my mind around a possible motive when I saw the “job” comment in the CNN story. I wish this wasn’t the beginning of a trend, but I can’t really see how it’s not.

    As for him going for Gwatney, I had heard that he was not a formal employee. It’s possible that he was at the dealership, but it’s also possible because Gwatney’s name had been in the new a lot and he perhaps became more a target because of that? As a symbol for Democratic Arkansans? To send a message? I don’t know.

    I hope that this all ends now, but I so very afraid that this is only the beginning.

    I always suspect eliminationists’ fans would be the first to go for a gun when something bad happens like losing their job

    Perhaps. There are any number of such cases to choose from, and what they all seem to share in common is that a disturbed and desperate guy loses his job, then goes after the most powerful person he can think of. In extreme cases, it’s the POTUS (see: at least two wierdos who have attempted to fly small planes into the White House for the very same reason). For less ambitious people, any nearby and accessible authority figure will have to do. (Note: this is distinctly different from the Tennessee church situation. That dude had a more specific scapegoat in mind).

    It will be interesting to see if the shooter had any personal connection with Gwatney. If so, the explanation will be fairly straightforward–he had a personal grudge against Gwatney. If not, then things get more complicated. Did the shooter target the Democratic Chairman because he was a Democrat, or simply because he was the nearest “important” man that the shooter could locate on short notice?

    True. My claim went more toward why the guy is disturbed and what he thinks is an appropriate way to deal with it.

    It will be interesting to see if the shooter had any personal connection with Gwatney.

    It will indeed. From what I’ve read so far, it seems likely.

    I wonder if Goober is really Jessie? It’s not like he’s working much.

    Anyway, so the population left of Malkin are whackjobs because after the anti-librul Church shooting, some (one in this case) suspect that perhaps it was another unhinged (gasp, I know registered TM, huh Michelle?) right winger who took to violence after fattening himself on her screed and those of her ilk?

    That’s crazy? I mean, the former shooter was an avid reader of fellow clown car passengers Hannity, Savage and her former boss, but lightning striking twice is beyond insane???

    What’s not crazy to Michelle? Claiming Obama’s 200k German crowd numbers were faked after swearing a 30k attendance figure for her Gathering of Eagles even though we can look at the photographs she posted.

    Thinking this shooter may have something against Democrats is nutty. Seeing a Fatwa in a Dunkin’ Donuts add? Sane and reasonable.

    Posting personal email addresses so your flying monkey readership can take the good fight to those you disagree with? Cool. Crying when it happened to you? Also cool, but let’s forget that ever happened.

    The real deal is, you elitist hate-filled coastal liberal elites are so full of hate that the very mention of someone’s mother is, to you, a threat of violence. This is because you are full of hate. What the brave Malkin commenter really did was to remind this unhinged maniac[1] that his mother would be shocked and ashamed of him. Why is that brave, you ask?

    If you ask a God-fearing, flag-waving, high-fructose Plugger from the Heartland to describe in single words only the good things that come into his mind about his mother, he’ll probably say words like “patriotic”, “motherly” and “religious”. Ask an elitist coastal latte-sipping Hawaii-visitor, though, and you’ll probably get shot a couple of times.

    So Obama is blameworthy because some dude who blew up a statue a couple decades ago was on the board of an anti-poverty group at the same time he was, and all liberals and liberalism itself are responsible whenever some crazy guy says something crazy, but conservatives are blameless unless they personally actually kill somebody, in which case it’s a fluke unrelated to their politics. And probably liberals’ fault, anyway.

    Well of course this is all Barry HUSSEIN Obama X’s fault. Him with his snooty Hawaiian observations about real Americans being bitter and clinging to their guns.

    Remember when Malkin, Schlussel, and the rest of them were so quick to conclude that the Va. Tech shooter was probably a Muslim of Middle Eastern descent or nationality? Even after it was revealed that the shooter was a Korean American who was raised in a strict Christian household, they still stuck to their guns, alleging that Cho was a fledgling Muslim and that he was anti-Christian despite the fact that he saw himself as a martyr who was “dying on the cross like Christ”. (And quickly, the MSM picked up that bogus meme, with David Brooks and Brian Williams describing Cho as “anti-Christian” in order to placate the beloved evangelical base, second only to NASCAR fans on William’s list of Americans Who Make Me Hard.) But just to be safe, Schlussel added that even if it turned out that the Va. Tech massacre wasn’t the act of a Muslim jihadist, the shootings would serve as proof to real jihadists everywhere that it’s pretty easy to massacre a few dozen Americans with just a few guns.

    So even when the killer is a just a delusional, angry kid whose parents’ idea of intervention was to go to their Christian church and pray for him, it’s still all about da Moozlims and their hatred of America’s freedoms.

    There is no arguing with these people.

    America is Mr. Obama’s problem… has he ever gotten misty-eyed over . . . the Wright Brothers and what kind of country allowed them to go off on their own and change everything?… John McCain carries it in his bones… That’s why people talk about the flag pin absent from the lapel… what about Obama and America? Who would have taught him to love it, and what did he learn was loveable, and what does he think about it all?…

Do not argue with them, just treat them like you would a demented old deaf person who won’t shut up. Pretend they can’t hear you and talk about them like they’re not even here.
