In a “Classic Display Of Tolerance” ®, an avowed far left wing democrat made a death threat against Trent Humphries, leader of the Tucson Tea Party, during a taping of an ABC “town hall’ event hosted by Christianne Amanpour.
The avowed left wing democrat in question is none other than Eric Fuller, one of the victims of Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage last weekend that left six dead and 13 injured.
Before you even think of giving me shit for describing Fuller as I have, understand that while I’m sorry he was shot, being a victim does not give him the right to spread malicious lies and then follow them up with death threats. Furthermore, what has been uncovered about Fuller’s life and activities prior to last week’s shooting support the assertion that he is, in fact, an avowed member of the far left.
But first, the story:
PHOENIX — One of the Arizona shooting victims was arrested Saturday and then taken for a psychiatric evaluation after authorities said he took a picture of a tea party leader at televised town hall meeting and yelled: “you’re dead.”
James Eric Fuller, 63, objected to something Trent Humphries said during the forum taped for a special edition of ABC’s “This Week” with Christiane Amanpour, Pima County sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said. Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN-TV in Tucson reported.
Fuller was arrested on misdemeanor disorderly conduct and threat charges, Ogan said. While Fuller was being escorted out, deputies decided he needed a mental health evaluation and he was taken to a hospital, where he remained Saturday evening.
The hospital will determine when he will be released, Ogan said.
According to State representative Terri Proud, who was at the event seated between Fuller and Humphries:
Trent Humphries, the Pima County tea party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy… While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”
Predictably, the left are already coming out in support of fuller. Commenter “Orange County California” wrote
Eric Fuller suffered enough already. The police should drop the charges. Tucson tea bagger Trent Humphries needs to get a life. He already caused enough suffering. I would have done the same if I was Eric Fuller.
Of course you would have, Orange County. That’s the whole point. This is what the left does. They are stupid, immature, and incapable of controlling their emotions.
I don’t know where this is headed….actually, that’s not true, I have a very good idea where this is headed – but it’s Obvious that Obama’s campaign stop Tucson memorial speech the other day has done nothing to slow down the smear campaign on conservatives coming from the insane left.
