This weekend brought plenty of new lows, aside from the murders themselves. We saw a law enforcement official drawing conclusions before an investigation had even begun, and the left of course blamed Sarah Palin’s “bullseye” over Giffords district for the shooting — even though one of the main peddlers of that accusation had done the very same thing (selective memory loss on full display).

In spite of all that, however, there is one issue on which everyone can find common ground: loathing these animals:

Former three-time Democrat gubernatorial candidate Fred Phelps Jr. (commonly called just “Fred Phelps”) and his Westboro Hate Group have announced plans to disrupt the funeral of 9 year-old shooting victim Christina Greene.

Christina was murdered by Jared Lee Loughner yesterday in his assassination attempt on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. The little girl was born on September 11th, 2001, so her parents have been cursed with a horrific trifecta of high profile trauma: their daughter born on the worst day in our generations’ lives, their daughter murdered in an assassination attempt on a member of Congress, and Democrat Fred Phelps aiming his hate machine at their family during their daughter’s funeral.

Is there a rubber-hose wielding psychiatrist in the house?

Also, as the left is in their “blame the right” mood this week which will no doubt spill over into the criticism of the WBC whack-jobs protesting funerals, remember that the Phelps family are in fact Democrats from way back.

According to Newsbusters, Phelps Jr. has run as a Democrat for governor of Kansas three times, mayor of Topeka twice, and for the U.S. Senator once. He was an Al Gore delegate when Gore ran for president in ’88 and was invited to the Clinton/Gore inaugurations in ’93 and ’97.

You won’t hear about that in the coming week as the media no doubt parrots the WBC as “extreme right wing” (paging Diane Sawyer) because it goes against the pre-written script for reporting about — and sick attempts to politically capitalize from — a horrible crime.

    Whenever the political affiliation is left off in a MSM story, you can rest assured it was a Democrat.

    The local talkshow host here looked up the WBC`s financing of their travel expenses (who could afford to travel and protest that much on their own dime ?)……as you might expect, they sue people who stand up against them, charging "infringement of 1st amendment rights, etc." So, they go to funerals, etc. to cause trouble and sue people who cause them trouble !!? Evil !! Sick and evil !!

    It`s encouraging to see that good folks will form human-shields to keep the WBC protesters outside the venues !

    So who`s dipping the lowest, the WBC associating with Albore, or the other way around ? Bumping heads ?

    You know what, from now on, every single time I see some leftist media hack post somewhere attempt to connect those WBC lunatics with the right, I will leave a link to THIS post.
    I am so sick of the non-stop lies about us nice normal conservative folks that the left keeps spewing!
    And Fred Phelps can rot in hell, if I were near AZ I'd be happy to join the Patriot Riders to keep those crazy bastards from getting anywhere near the funeral of that little girl!

    For shame !! What did those poor tires do to anyone ? Such violence !! And mean ol` tire guys wouldn`t serve these fine practitioners of free speech ! What is this world coming to ?! SARC / OFF

    They should feel lucky that "counter-protesters" stopped with the tires !!

  10. L Ross on January 9th, 2011 4:13 pm

    New media "policy" – Don't mention the political affiliation if democrat. Don't mention the race unless the accused is WHITE. America is many things to many people. When anybody preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other through class warfare, race hatred or religious intolerance. You know that person seeks to rob us of our freedoms and destroy our very lives.

    Working together to produce an ever greater abundance of material and spiritual values for all. That is the secret of American prosperity.

  11. SignPainterGuy on January 9th, 2011 4:37 pm

    At my age, I`m looking forward to ROTFL and CGU (Can`t Get Up) !! Oh, goody !!

  14. SignPainterGuy on January 9th, 2011 7:26 pm

    Thanks, OK, I`d not thought about him in a while; he`s just in the way !

    Don`t sheriff`s have to swear an oath to uphold and defend the constitution and our laws ? He`s obviously violating that oath !

  15. Nanny on January 9th, 2011 8:03 pm

    He was just on Fox and is outright accusing conservative talk radio of causing this. He should be identified as Sheriff Dipshit instead of Sherrif Dupneck. When the merry band of hate spewers from WBC show up – how is Sheriff Dipshit going to defend these loyal Democrats?

  16. OK_Loyalist on January 9th, 2011 8:11 pm

    "He should be identified as Sheriff Dipshit instead of Sherrif Dupneck."

    That works for me ! LOL

  17. SignPainterGuy on January 9th, 2011 10:19 pm

    Scrub the title of Sheriff ! Keep it plain and simple !

    Ah the modern American Conversative – refusing personal responsibility for anything.

    1. Tea Party leaders use violent gun rhetoric to rally people against Democratic officials
    2. "Normal" people warn this could lead a few extremists to actually take violent actions.
    3. Tea Party cries and pouts
    4. Extremist shoots and kills several at a Democratic Congresswoman's public appearance. Included in the murdered are a 9 yo girl and a federal judge.
    5. Media notes that targeted congresswoman was one Sarah Palin had LITERALLY targeted in crosshairs on her website.
    6. Tea Party cries about media and liberal bias (the broken record).

    Take some responsibility for your actions people. Try it on for size. It's not so bad.

  19. OK_Loyalist on January 10th, 2011 1:25 pm

    Too bad a partisan idiot like you would know NOTHING about "Normal". Now go to your welfare office, your food stamps are ready Pasha.

  20. Doug on January 10th, 2011 1:31 pm

    Want to see some violent rhetoric?

    http://michellemalkin.com/2011/01/10/the-progress

    The more you pretend "your side" doesn't lead the pack by far when it comes to violent rhetoric, the greater of a joke you become. But if it's easier to blame somebody who was fishing in f-in Alaska when people were killed in Arizona, feel free.

    And if you gave a damn about "personal responsibility" you'd be blaming the guy who shot those people.

    Keep those blinders on!

  21. OK_Loyalist on January 10th, 2011 1:35 pm

    This troll really is a miscreant

    Notice the leftists forget “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Barack Hussein Obama June 13, 2008.

  22. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2011 2:05 pm

    Excellent point !

  23. SignPainterGuy on January 10th, 2011 2:13 pm

    Excellent response Doug ! And to think I just commended Nick`s decent side on your "Autism ….." blog !? (shakes head in disgust)

    Nick is still mired in deep stupidity !

  24. republicantkilla on January 11th, 2011 5:52 pm

    Gee, wasn't Joe Liebermann a "Democrat" before becoming a right-wing fanatic? Pictures from 1988 probably prove that too.

  25. Zilla on January 12th, 2011 9:01 am

    That ID craziness is why I now have DISQUSS instead. :) I just couldn't take it anymore.

    I've been referring to Dupnik as DuPINKO, seems apt given his behavior.

    Joe Liebermann is to the right of most liberal left-wing fanatics, but he absolutely IS NOT a "right-wing fanatic" !! Not on this planet !

    It literally means nothing that they are Democrats. The Democratic party is the most gay-friendly party between them and the GOP. Plus, the WBC believes Obama is the anti-Christ. So don't try to pretend like them being a part of the Democratic Party means anything negative towards Democrats or Democratic ideals. the only reason people assume the WBC is right-wing is because they hate gay people, and the GOP is the least gay-friendly of the two. it may not be a correct assumption, but it makes the most sense of the two to an average person. Basically, this argument is as dumb as people assuming Kansas citizens are just like the WBC. the only people you should be insulting are the WBC themselves.

    My point is, both parties don't like these people so everyone needs to stop acting like anyone else should be looked down upon because of the actions of this cult. that's just childish.
