Tea Party Movement Responsible for Giffords Attack -- GMAFB!

One of the first comments that I read in response to the early reports of the deranged gunman's attack on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was, "a major win for Sarah Palin and the NRA". That was followed by remarks, even by people who should know better, blaming Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and the tea party movement for the kind of heightened hostile political rhetoric that causes some people to "go over the edge".

Give me a break! If it weren't for the 'progressive' attack on our founding principles, their distortion of, and disregard for the US Constitution, we wouldn't even have a need for "heightened hostile political rhetoric", because there would be no (internal) threat to our constitutional republic.

The tea party movement, more than anything else, values the US Constitution, the rule of law, and holds these truths to be self evident: That all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. If anyone mistakes that political rhetoric for an exhortation to kill, then they truly are deranged, because none of these principles are compatible with a violent attack on a peaceful assembly at a grocery store.

Oh, and the NRA supports responsible gun use and ownership. A violent attack on a peaceful assembly at a grocery store doesn't constitute responsible gun use. Sane people would blame the perpetrator, and not inanimate objects.

Update: For all the accusations of hyperbole directed at conservatives, let's not forget:
It's lucky nobody attacked a Republican politician, or the 'progressives' would have been excoriated in the media! No, wait...

Update: Michelle Malkin pulls together a montage of unhinged hostile rhetoric from the left. Hello Pot? This is kettle! You're black!
