DavidL's Breakfast Scramble

Christina-Taylor Green, from Stephanie Innes, Arizona Daily Star:

Aspiring politician Christina-Taylor Green was born in the midst of tragedy on Sept. 11, 2001, and died Saturday morning while trying to meet Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

The strong-willed 9-year-old third-grader had gone to meet Giffords with a neighbor when she was shot. She died later at University Medical Center

The kid had spunk.

The Lame Stream Media, from Byron York, Washington Examiner:

On November 5, 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at a troop readiness center in Ft. Hood, Texas, killing 13 people.  Within hours of the killings, the world knew that Hasan reportedly shouted “Allahu Akbar!” before he began shooting, visited websites associated with Islamist violence, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces his enemy, opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam, and told a neighbor shortly before the shootings that he was going “to do good work for God.”  There was ample evidence, in other words, that the Ft. Hood attack was an act of Islamist violence.

Nevertheless, public officials, journalists, and commentators were quick to caution that the public should not “jump to conclusions” about Hasan’s motive.  CNN, in particular, became a forum for repeated warnings that the subject should be discussed with particular care.


Fast forward a little more than a year, to January 8, 2011.  In Tucson, Arizona, a 22 year-old man named Jared Lee Loughner opened fire at a political event, gravely wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, killing a federal judge and five others, and wounding 18.  In the hours after the attack, little was known about Loughner beyond some bizarre and largely incomprehensible YouTube postings that, if anything, suggested he was mentally ill.  Yet the network that had shown such caution in discussing the Ft. Hood shootings openly discussed the possibility that Loughner was inspired to violence by…Sarah Palin.  Although there is no evidence that Loughner was in any way influenced by Palin, CNN was filled with speculation about the former Alaska governor

Speaking of spunk, the lams stream media certainly has none.    How can you tell the media is dead certain the right wing,  tea party and Sarah Palin had nothing to do with the murder of Green et al and are not prone to violence?   It is simple, the media is not afraid to insult and impugn the right wing.  Whereas the same media is scared shat less to offend Islamists, lest one of the towel heads blow their tiny heads off.    The media is only willing to insult those who would not threaten their lives.

Hillbuzz smacks Fred Phelps, from Kevin Dujan0, Hillbuzz:

The Left does some truly despicable things in this world, but this is a new low for Democrats.

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:

Amusing, very amusing.  Phelps is not a serious person.   His theological rantings are totally impossible to either prove or disprove.   You can merely believe or disbelieve them.     Phelps does seem to be trying to corner the market in bad taste.

Pardon Fausta’s French, link:

“Global term” my foot. I’m a mother, dammit.

Yes, you are a parental unit, at least according to the State Department,‘Mother,’ ‘Father’ Changing to ‘Parent One,’ ‘Parent Two’ on Passport Applications

Well French is a Latin (Romantic) language.   However, just between you and me, I think Fausta got her body parts mixed up.
