Arizona sheriff Clarence Dupnik says the growing hate and intolerance in American politics is to blame for the shooting of democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford and several others.
The assassination attempt on Giffords followed a widely-covered post by Palin on her political action committee’s page, Sarahpac.com, which showed gunsight targets on each one of the states Palin considered a “problem.” The site listed Congress members by name, including Giffords.
Palin also recently Tweeted prior to Giffords’ shooting, one of her catch phrases: “Don’t retreat – reload.”
The man who had most to do with the shooter, Loughner after his arrest, Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik, was clearly angered by what he heard from the assassin:
“When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government, the anger, the hatred, the bigotry … it is getting to be outrageous. And unfortunately, Arizona, I think, has become sort of the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”
The Akh is waiting for all white Americans to apologise for this act of terrorism.
