The Party of Personal Responsibility

Remember when it used to be considered a bleeding-heart pansy liberal thing to say that "society" was to blame for people becoming criminals or whatever? And remember how conservatives used to howl about personal responsibility and how no one is to blame for the crime except the criminal himself? I miss those days.

AFA News Director Says Liberal Churches, Media Share Responsibility for Colorado Shooting

Fred Jackson, the American Family Association’s news director, while discussing the Colorado movie theater shooting today said that liberal Christian churches and liberal media helped contribute to violent incidents by supposedly deemphasizing the fear of God and the Bible. During AFA Today, Jackson had on as his guest Jerry Newcombe of Truth in Action Ministries to discuss his column on the AFA’s OneNewsNow blaming the shooting on a waning fear of God and Hell, and blamed the American Civil Liberties Union for destroying the public school system by supposedly forbidding students from reading the Bible. “You wonder why all these terrible things are happening to us when there is no fear of God,” Newcombe said.
Jackson maintained that unlike in the communities of forty years ago, liberals in the media and churches, along with movies and the internet, have “have come together to give us these kinds of incidents.”

Also unlike 40 years ago, nuts now have easy access to military-grade assault weapons. But I'm sure that's just a coincidence.

But seriously, if only our culture put more emphasis on the fear of God and Hell, this young man's brain chemicals would never have turned on him and he would never have become a paranoid schizophrenic or whatever it is that convinces a young person that the audience at a Batman movie must be destroyed.

Because obviously this is the sort of man who weighs the pros and cons of his actions before proceeding. I'm sure he would have weighed the possibility of going to Hell against the chance that the Batman audience was all out to get him and made the wise decision.

R. Emmett Tyrrell: 'Brain Dead' Liberals are to Blame for Colorado Shooting

Yesterday, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association blamed liberals for the movie theatre shooting in Colorado:
But Fischer is not alone in assigning blame to the left.
R. Emmett Tyrrell, the founder and editor of The American Spectator, spoke to Fischer yesterday about the Colorado shooting and told the Religious Right talk show host that “a country that is being forced to turn away from God because of the liberals gets things like the Colorado massacre in abundance.” 
 Because it was Brain-Dead liberals who decided that gun manufacturers should be completely free to sell any kind of weapon to any lunatic who wants them. I believe it was Saul Alinsky's idea!

Culture of Death and the Batman Shooting

Today, children are reared in a culture that glorifies – even worships – death and violence. But brutal crimes such as this are not the cause of our culture of death; they are merely a symptom. . . 
Just one example, though a big one, is America’s ongoing capitulation to the horrific abortion violence carried out under cover of manmade law each day – an equally evil phenomenon.
Beneath the euphemistic banner of “reproductive choice,” hundreds of women elect to have their own babies slaughtered in the womb daily. Children – those who dodged the abortion bullet anyway – aren’t stupid; they’re just young. From this, they can only deduce that, according to our culture, human life is cheap and meaningless.
So why are we surprised when people like the “Batman killer” act accordingly?

 They certainly couldn't learn that life is cheap and meaningless from an administration that sent thousands of their peers to their deaths in some god-forsaken desert for no discernable reason other than to funnel taxpayer money to KBR and Blackwater.
And I'm sure that no one would get the idea that life is cheap by a culture that says "you want a military-class submachine gun? And you're batshit insane? Here ya go, son!"

Now don't go committing any mass murders, kiddo!

Fischer: 'We've Tried It the Liberals' Way for Sixty Years Now and What Do We Got? We Have Massacres in Aurora'

Today on Focal Point, Fischer specifically blamed liberals and opposition to posting the Ten Commandments in public schools for the shooting, lamenting, “we’ve tried it the liberals’ way for sixty years now and what do we got? We have massacres in Aurora.”

Aw, shit! No one told me that "don't kill" was a commandment! 
If only they'd been posted at the courthouse!

Flip Benham Declares CO Shooter to be 'Spawn of the Ideology of the Democratic Party'

Flip Benham of Operation Save America has decided to join the cavalcade of blame being unleashed by the Religious Right over the tragic mass shooting in Colorado last night, declaring that the suspect is "an Occupy Wall Street guy" who is "the spawn of the ideology of the Democratic Party:"

So apparently, the shooting is the fault of: Liberals, abortion, The Democratic Party, Secularists, Liberals, Occupy Wall Street and Liberals. Everyone except the man who pulled the trigger. And guns. Goddammit, you better not try to blame gun violence on guns! Because what ever happened to personal responsibility?
