Shepard Smith is my favorite quisling.
Why is Shepard Smith allowed to make such irresponsible statements? Glenn Beck has clearly established that Von Brunn is a liberal and that this shooting was the fault of Obama and the Democratic party.
Definitely Smith. You can hear the Rage Twang that sneaks back into his voice whenever he's upset at his network.

Maybe your station should stop making money off of the people that report warned us about.
What political alignment are conspiracy nuts (the OMGZIONISTS and truther bunch) exactly?
We could have all the news networks duke it out over him being a leftist or a right winger, or we can call him a truther, blame Alex Jones, and everyone can go home happy.
Uh, Nazism is right wing? That's an established fact.
See, this is what I love. America's leftist violence is almost entirely limited to tipping over SUVs and getting gassed at WTO rallies. Right wing violence in this country is killing people performing legal medical procedures and marching through museums with rifles.
But we can't call it right wing violence. That wouldn't be fair. It might hurt their feelings. And, certainly, the left has violence, too! Look at it! Look at the leftists shooting people!
Well they're not the fucking same and he was a right winger. Those are facts.
It's part of the whole cognitive dissonance. Hatred of races and blaming them for problems (especially economic ones) is very right-wing. The right will blame the left for having bleeding hearts for minorities and say they all want to give them affirmative action and so on.
Yet then they claim that in spite of all that, the left are actually racists who would side with Hitler.
Doublethink. It's what's on AM Radio.
Also, don't forget that the right-wing deflection of responsibility of this sort of thing is basically different variations of "Well, it wouldn't have happened if people hadn't MADE THIS GUY DO IT"
If only Jews hadn't PROVOKED THIS by just STAYING QUIET
This just in, shooting people out of some kind of racist/nazi ideology is "weirdness."
"Yer honor, we find the defendant guilty of first-degree weirdness."
"Very well. The sentence is for a bizarre fate. Bailiff, take the prisoner down to the Jell-O tank and prepare the electric eels."
On Freep, when they realized they couldn't pin this guy on the left wing they all agreed that he was very mentally ill. They enjoyed a lot of his earlier work though.
I've dealt with people trying to tell me ALL DAMNED DAY that this guy was really a "left wing nut" and, when confronted on how bizarre a statement that is, proceed to tell me that "Nazism is left-wing extremism". You know, because it stood for "National SOCIALIST".
So, yeah, I've been having my head driven over by the logic train every time it jumps the rails like that today.
Sometimes....it sucks being the only moderate in the room. Shep here feels this pain. I love him.
