Nutjob fears 'Zionists,' kills 4 cops, and an idiot liberal blames . . . Michelle Malkin?

Four dead in Pittsburgh:
Mr. Perkovic and other former classmates said they were surprised by this morning's events. Mr. Perkovic said Mr. Poplawski was opposed to "Zionist propaganda" and was fearful that his right to own weapons would be taken away.
Tim F. enlightens us:
How is that "orderly revolution" going, Michelle? How about that laundry soap rebellion, Erick? This is what Glenn Beck's citizen army looks like. People like Michelle Malkin fantasize about citizens rising up against the (Democratic) state. They stoke their followers' paranoia with bullshit that, mostly, they know is bullshit, for ratings and a shot at political traction. Did they expect the American revolution?
You know, Tim F., I've got better things to do with my life than to pay attention to liberal pretzel-logic like this, and I know Michelle Malkin doesn't have time to waste, either. So I'm just linking your idiocy in the hope that our commenters, or some other blogger like Kathy Shaidle, Dan Riehl or Jeff Goldstein, will do me the favor of taking a few moments to explain to you what a worthless waste of bandwidth you are.

UPDATE: Via Memeorandum, I see that Malkin has already blogged this story, with an appropriately curt dismissal of the idiot liberals. Just in case anyone out there is unclear, the fact that President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder, have been lifelong proponents of gun control is not an excuse to become a paranoid nutjob and start shooting people.

UPDATE II: Malkin responds at greater length to the Binghamton massacre blame game:
Look, I’m all for finding root causes.
But someone please explain to me how conservatives who espouse immigration enforcement and assimilation led a nutball of Vietnamese descent who reportedly could barely speak English to slaughter innocent people taking a citizenship test and trying to naturalize the right way?
Put the hangman’s noose down and try to make some sense.
Ditto. If you want to vent your spleen, go right ahead and vent, Alan Colmes. That's why Al Gore invented the Internet. But don't pretend that your idiotic attempts to politicize the crimes of nutjobs is Insightful News Commentary. I don't have enough snark to spare and experts assure me that we're seriously at risk of a pixel shortage.


  1. Whoa here Stacy, you might want to hold your horses.

    The intentions of the worthless piece of $hit that killed four cops is still unknown. Everyone, right and left included, are overlooking the plain and simple fact that his friends reported he was afraid that Obama would take away his guns or infringe on his right to bear arms. He wasn't hanging out of window screaming, "Come get them out of my cold dead hands!"

    He also recently lost his job. So does that mean left is to blame because their politics of economic fear has made everyone desperate?

    Did the lack of immigration reform piss off the Vietnamese guy in New York?

    Did the oppression of a welfare state make the black dude in Oakland lose it?

    This is a human tragedy, not a political one. It's about time everybody gets off their bull$hit soapboxes and realizes this.

  2. Surely the people these days ranting & raving about "zionists" are actually left these days? Just see any anti-Israel rally or so-called "peace" one.

    The lack of grip on reality from some of those leftist bloggers and commentators is quite impressive.

  3. If a batshit crazy psycho with a right-wing obsession goes on a shooting spree, the left claims it's proof that all right-wingers are batshit crazy.

    If a batshit crazy psycho with a left-wing obsession goes on a shooting spree, the left says "he may have had a point."
