Shooting at Family Research Council: The suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire …”

Posted by on Aug 15, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Obviously the suspect must be a Tea Partier.

A security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C., was shot in the arm by a gunman who sources said expressed disagreement with the conservative group’s policy positions.

The guard, who was not identified, was conscious after the shooting and was being treated. The shooting occurred in the Chinatown neighborhood  Wednesday morning. The gunman was apprehended and was being questioned by the FBI, sources said. Sources said he is in his twenties and may have been posing as an intern.

The suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard,” a source told Fox News.

Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism.

“The police are investigating this incident,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said. “Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today.  Our concern is for him and his family.”

More here. If this was a leftist outfit by now the entire right would have been condemned.
Update: From a leftwing blog:
Hmm. The Southern Poverty Law Center, always one-stop shopping for the media int he wake of high-profile shootings.  I wonder what they’ll have to say?
Naturally, the commenters at this website show their concern for this victim of leftwing hate.
Such caring.
Oh, OK. I guess it was staged.
Conspiracy theories already abound:
Unlikely, but feel free to indulge yourself.
Naturally, there’s a Chick-Fil-a angle:
Meanwhile, over at the Huffingandpuffington Post:
Well, there, he deserved it!
Even Bible-thumpers agree!
Hey, maybe it was an inside job!

    Well, rest assured if there were any political hay to be made on behalf of Barack Obama in this, Krugman, Friedman, Froma Halfwit and the other “voices of reason” would be all over it.

    …that’s right.

    It’s the people being shot down and murdered who are the ‘haters’.

    What was it He said?

    P.S. I have to wonder about the political affiliations of the mass murderers Holmes (Aurora Theater) and Page (Sikh Temple).

    If it was Republican or Tea Party, as ABC and others lied about Holmes, you can bet we’d have heard about it. So I suspect the silence indicates they were ‘Progressives’ or at least ‘Liberals’.

    Chuck:

    Page was a Neo-Nazi and it showed through his abhorrent participation in skinhead-type musical groups that was clearly on record. SPLC actually had a file on him. The Army certainly didn’t want him at some point and couldn’t wait to discharge him from PsyOps. The attack was probably not against Siiks in specific but against non-whites in general, similar to the Jewish center attacker in LA some years ago.

    Holmes is more of a mystery: there were rumors that he was part of Occupy, but unsubstantiated (or airbrushed, if you’re the conspiratorial type). There’s nothing else to go on, as he quite deliberately kept his social media profile very low. I don’t think Holmes had a specific political agenda as we’d recognize it, but something more like what the Columbine shooters had – a burning desire to go out in flames and be famous.

    RE: Page

    I was aware of Page’s background with regards to the Army and his white supremacist beliefs.

    I’m curious as to his voter registration. As it wasn’t likely to be Republican, I’m wondering if he was Democrat or Independent/Unaffiliated.

    I hope we make a huge stink about this. It’s normal for conservatives to have the wherewithall to see this sort of thing as an isolated incident, but seeing as how the cocksuckers on the left contrive to make every incident of this sort a “right wing” transgression, we should take pleasure in making the left squirm.

  7. SteveAR on 15/15/12 at 3:56 pm

    Has Obama called the guard or those who were working at the FRC office at the time? I won’t hold my breath that he will.

    Given the upcoming event intended to rub the media’s nose in their burial of the OWS terrorist plot in Cleveland, ABSOLUTELY.

    “Word has it” that this guy was paid to do this by Harry Reid. And there is a 6’3″, 250 lb man listed on the New Black Panther Party website. So there you go eriKKK Holeder…all the evidence ya need. Douchenozzle!

    Why scurry off to these leftist sites to ogle their idiotic venom? Is some prurient craving being served? We all know what they’re going to say before they say it.

    Let’s focus on annihilating them in the political arena.

    I think we can all take comfort that the average murderous liberal psychotic can’t shoot worth a damn.

    Meme confirmed.

    RE: Heh

    So you suggest MKULTRA is ‘alive and well’.

    Interesting theory. And, in light of these two other attacks, e.g., Page at the Sikh Temple and this character coming close on the heels…..

    ….it might be gaining traction. Especially if this latest clown acts like he’s suffering from amnesia, like Holmes did.

    We’ll have to keep an eye on it.
