Three Dead In Kansas Shooting; Wingnuts Heroically Scramble To Prove Suspected Shooter Not A Republican
Another day, another shitwit with a gun going off his nut and very publicly shooting a bunch of holes in a bunch of innocent unarmed people somewhere in America. Okay, this actually happens every day, but Sunday’s shooting in Kansas City is getting the media attention so let’s talk about it for a minute. The accused shooter is one Frazier Glenn Miller, who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Cross, and who has a long history of involvement with the white supremacist movement. Miller allegedly shot to death a doctor and his teenage grandson in the parking lot of the Overland Park Jewish Community Center and then an as-yet-unidentified woman at the nearby Village Shalom, a Jewish retirement community (the two dead at the JCC were reportedly Methodists -- for a guy who hates Jews, Miller sure sucks at identifying them). And as he was put into a police car, he shouted "Heil Hitler" for the cameras.
We’re pretty sure the wingnuts will call for arming all the residents of every nursing home in America any minute now, if they haven’t already. Because the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a palsied good guy with a gun. And regular target practice could be a nice activity for all the seniors, in between working on jigsaw puzzles and bitching that their children never visit.
Of course the most important thing we can do right now is send our prayers and support to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy....HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, we’re kidding. Obviously the most important thing we can do is identify Glenn Miller’s political party and stick him with that label, over and over!
Cue the shrieking howler monkeys of the right.
Wow, that’s something. A Democrat, you say? Let’s read the NBC News article ourselves and see what it says. Bolding is ours, because What. The. Fuck.
He even unsuccessfully ran in the Democratic primary for North Carolina governor in 1984 and as a Republican for a state Senate seat in 1987, the SPLC said.
We have been at this blogging thing long enough to not be surprised to see wingnuts lying, but it’s pretty damn egregious when the point one is trying to make is contradicted WITHIN THE SAME SENTENCE. That’s some spectacular lying, wingnuts. Kudos.
Miller’s most recent run for office was in 2006 when he tried to win the Democratic nomination for Missouri’s Seventh Congressional District, which had our friends at DailyKos rather upset. In Greater Wingnuttia, this gets translated as

Forty years ago the Instaputz would have been a homeless weirdo leaving his mimeographed screeds under the windshield wipers of cars in a community college parking lot before dragging himself over to the Union Mission for a free bowl of soup. America!
We’re glad the wingnuts have their priorities in order, as they always do after these sorts of tragedies. Most people would just offer condolences and shut the fuck up, but those people don’t know who the real victims are.
Follow Gary on Twitter. He finds it interesting that wingnuts think liberals are all a bunch of gun-hating weenies right up until someone goes out and uses a gun, and then they can't slap the gunman with the liberal label fast enough.
