Memorial (?) Thread
And: A White House Spokesman Assured ABC's The Note That Obama Would Not Sully This Solemn Occasion With Shabby Politics

This has nothing to do with photo-ops. All memorial services and funerals have their own slogans and t-shirts these days. Didn't you know that?


Here's the program. No word if additional merch will be available after the show.

Unfair: Actually, I don't have any evidence the t-shirts were put out by Obama's people. I suspect they were, but it could have been Brewer's people. It could also have been Giffords' family or supporters.

For all I know Obama is just going along with this and might even have objected himself by saying, "T-shirts? Really?"

But while I have no evidence it's Obama's fault I'm sure he is just the same.

I learned that from the MFM.

The Idiot Killer's Records Released (?) Oddly enough no mention of those death threats Dupnik had mentioned. And in fact no reports at all from 2008-2010, until that one traffic stop on the day of the massacre we don't know about.

So the file is... all clean and tidied up for public consumption.

(That's a dog-whistle, yes.)

Translation: the son-of-a-bitch will shamelessly talk about the "need for civility in our discourse," knowing full well civility had nothing to do with what happened in AZ, not to mention the fact he and his ilk have been uncivil beasts for the last decade.

And oh yeah, the next day he'll drop that it's all Rush's fault. Been there; done that.

In 2002 Senator Wellstone in MN was killed just before the election. The Dems held a Memorial that was turned into a campaign rally, to the disgust of thinking people. The Republican won the election over the substituted Dem candidate based on that revulsion.

In late October, 2002, Senator Paul Wellstone (D, MN) died in a horrible plane crash. This happened about two weeks before the Senate election, in which he was running for a third term.

In short, the Dems took the opportunity during Wellstone's funeral to make it a campaign event for Democrats. It was fucking disgusting.

There are many stories about this sickening stunt by the Dems - I'd start with this story in the Weekly Standard if you wish to read more.

75 Um, guys. It is worse than just shirts on seats. They actually passed them out to those waiting in line earlier today:

Some people spent the night outside McKale to ensure they got a seat
inside for the “Together We Thrive: Tucson and America.” Others will
watch Obama speak on a Jumbotron screen set up nearby in the University
of Arizona football stadium.
By 2 p.m., two lines into the McKale building were 12 blocks long and
appeared to be growing a block every 10 minutes. The sun is shining
and many people are wearing T-shirts and shorts. One group is handing
out blue T-shirts with the name of the event emblazoned on them.

Wellstone wase a senator from MN. i believe he died in a plane crash before the election.
Anyway, the memorial was televised. It was held in a stadium or something. There had to be thousands if not ten thousand people there. A veritable who's who of democrats. I think Clinton and others were there two. It was done in a tv show awards format, with a stage, microphone and speakers.
It became a very macabre political rally with chants, virtriol, etc. Even Wellstones kids got involved. I remember watching it with my mouth open thinking that this couldn't be happening.
Norm Coleman ended up winning the elections.
look for it on youtube.

115 What if the speech is really good?

I highly doubt the speech can be considered good by everybody. If he doesn't attack Republicans, his base will be pissed at him. If he does attack Republicans, well, nobody but his base will particularly like that.

If history is any guide, this speech will be principally about himself and how wonderful his election was.

126 Has anyone addressed the concern that the way the media covers shootings and other unfortunate/tragic events is going to lead to a "Life of David Gale" type situation, where a deranged, but unknown, liberal creates a paper trail that indicates he/she is a hard core conservative, assassinates a politician or commits another atrocity, and then is tried, convicted and sentenced/executed as a TRUE PATRIOT type?

It seems unlikely, but that's pretty much what the media is encouraging.

Did this kind of thing happen after Leo Ryan was assassinated in the Jonestown massacre or when Larry McDonald was on KAL 007 when it was shot down?

And now, the Native American blessing:

"Great spirits, for some
bizarre reason, we red men are here at the behest of a black/white man
to crazy glue the impression of spirituality onto a service for mostly
white Jews and Christians. And no, I did not just hit the peyote before
showing up tonight. This is real. I never saw anything nearly so fucked
up as this when I was doing that stuff."

Dorwin Stoddard, 76, was a church volunteer. When the shooting started, Dorwin tried to protect his wife, Mavavell,by laying on top of her when the shooting started. She was wounded in the attack.
Dorothy Morris, 76, moved to Oro Valley from Las Vegas after her husband George Morris retired as a pilot with United Airlines, according to Bill Royle, a good friend of the Morris family.George Morris remains in intensive care at the University Medical Center.

connecting with the whole “memorial” concept = dead people.

346 Disgusting display in Tucson right now. Cheering is not appropriate in this circumstance but I don't expect the scum down south to know that. The opening speaker, Mexican and Yaqui ( his own words ) doesn't claim he's an American. God forbid. And of course the crowd cheers him when he states he's Mexican and Yaqui. Stupid white kids cheering those who want to rub them out. No wonder our country is fucked. Now he's rambling on to "father sky" and "mother earth". Why am I not surprised that they didn't open the ceremony with a Christian prayer? The six who were murdered were most likely Christian. Instead we get a shaman and a feather. Good job Tucson, you have embarrassed us all.

That would be giving in to the oppressive white, European, male dominance hierarchy and not celebrating the true truthfulness of death, which is related to the sky father and the earth mother, which gives us flowers and things that slither under the earth...which push up the flowers.

A bunch of politicos getting some face time -- that was all those soldiers got, and precious little of that.
It did not go over well. Neither did Obama's paying his respects -- they realize their comrades were swept under the rug.

1088 This is what's called having it both ways:

But what we can’t do is use this tragedy as one more
occasion to turn on one another. As we discuss these issues,
let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather
than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion
to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more
carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind
ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound
together.

1230 The Non-Accusatory Case for Civility
Rich Lowry

The pep-rally atmosphere was inappropriate and disconcerting, but President Obama turned in a magnificent performance. This was a non-accusatory, genuinely civil, case for civility, in stark contrast to what we’ve read and heard over the last few days. He subtly rebuked the Left’s finger-pointing, and rose above the rancor of both sides, exactly as a president should. Tonight, he re-captured some of the tone of his famous 2004 convention speech. Well done.

It is tough to figure out Sauerkraut the schizo – one segment he will rip B.O. a new one, the next he can’t contain himself over the brilliance of him.
He will blast anti-capitalist measures, the bailouts, the massive debts and takeovers, our declining world status, the fudamental transformation of America, etc..by BO - yet, would no doubt vote for BO overa conservativelike Palin - all the whileappearing onFox as a conservative.
He often points out how distructive BO and his administration has been, how we are heading unreluctantly toward a european style gov with BO and the Dems, and we voters said NO to this in Nov.Then says we will vote BO back in if the unemployment goes down? WTF

1246 You really get what you pay for with the Rosetta stone language courses . If you’re looking for other benefits, consider that fact that you don’t have to commute to college in order to learn a foreign language. Rosetta stone’s lack of compatibility with PDA’s is not a very serious drawback, especially if you don’t want to drive or walk to school anyway. If you intend to study a language entirely at home, then Rosetta stone is the best alternative to sitting in a class room. Another benefit of utilizing this powerful language learning tool is in preparation for a college course. You can use the software to learn the language and then fly through your college course, get a letter A grade, and apply the credits toward a degree or certificate. I think you will have interests to see rosetta stone discount
