I would love to blame Glenn Beck for inspiring Richard Andrew Poplawski. I think Beck is a disaster in the making. One of these days someone is going to take him seriously and do something very, very bad. The problem with all of that is blaming “right wing talk radio” for the actions of evil people.
Poplawski, Jiverly Wong, Alberto Alvarez, and James Harrison are, or in Harrison’s case, were evil. People like to rationalize why monsters kill, all the while not wanting to admit that evil exists. Perhaps that is the problem we’re dealing with. Instead of simply accepting the idea that there is evil in the world and evil people who are going to do evil things to the innocents around them, our therapy-based society must come up with reasons for people doing things.
Alvarez couldn’t get a job. Wong had lost his. Harrison murdered his five children allegedly because he was out of work. Is that the going excuse now? No job, out of work, go out in a blaze of glory?
Poplawski, on the other hand, was a conspiracy freak, and a staunch poster at Stormfront. Dave Neiwert, who can be one of the most rational liberals at times, and one of the nuttiest, thinks it was all a 2nd Amendment thing. Don’t take my guns. Blame everything on conservatives.
Stormfront is neo-Nazi. I’ve been warning you about them for years. They would just as soon kill GWB and BHO. It doesn’t matter. They are into evil.
GIVE ME A BREAK
Richard Andrew Poplawski, who slaughtered 3 Pittsburg cops Saturday morning was a conspiracy freak. He was an evil person. Unfortunately, classy as always, liberals such as the Daily Kos are behaving like a bunch of asses.
“…UPDATE AT END OF POST: Moulitsas was less concerned about the four Oakland police officers killed just miles from his home two weeks ago.
Shortly before Markos Moulitsas blamed Glenn Beck for instigating the senseless shooting of three Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, police officers on Saturday, the proprietor of the far-left website Daily Kos said that conservatives would rather shoot cops than organize to win the next election.
He also wrote during the same Twitter discussion, “With no Veep to shoot people, folks are taking things into their own hands….Update: As many of you know, four Oakland police officers were senselessly murdered on March 21 by a lone gunman. As NewsBusters reported on March 28, the killings rocked the entire community. The funeral was attended by Senators Boxer and Feinstein, Gov. Schwarzenegger, and tens of thousands of Bay Area residents.
Moulitsas lives with his family in Berkeley which is Oakland’s neighbor to the north. Depending on where their home is, he could be as little as ten miles from where the March 21 killings occurred.
One of the fallen officers, Daniel Sakai, was a UC-Berkeley graduate, a former UC-Berkeley policeman, and his wife is training to be on the UCPD force.
From what I can tell by reviewing Moulitsas’s posts at Daily Kos as well as from a Google search, he never mentioned this shooting which occurred virtually in his own backyard. I can also find no evidence of him tweeting about it.
But, when three officers were killed all the way on the other side of the country by someone who apparently was afraid he might lose his Second Amendment rights, Moulitsas felt the need to comment….”
