Classy: AP Runs Photo With Image of Gun Pointing Directly at Ted Cruz’s Head

Posted by on Jun 22, 2015 at 6:36 am

Just a little over the top, no?

The Associated Press currently has a photo for sale at its site showing a graphic of a gun pointing at Ted Cruz’s head. It has been there since early Saturday evening.

It would appear that Charlie Neibergall, the person who snapped this photograph, had to patiently wait for the “right” moment to take the photo in question.

Neibergall should be unemployed by this morning.

It seems worth asking, given that he submitted the photo just before 7:00 p.m. on Saturday (apparently Eastern Time), over 11 hours after the photo was taken at 7:47 a.m., if Niebergall waited to submit the photo until after all the adults, assuming any remain at AP, went home for the rest of the weekend.

I can’t wait to see a similar photo involving leftist Democratic Party 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who perhaps to many readers’ surprise, has to a fair extent been a supporter of Second Amendment rights.

Over four years after the fact we’re still hearing about the Sarah Palin target map supposedly used as inspirations for the Gabrielle Giffords shooting, which it wasn’t. Now, might this outrageous photo inspire a crazed gunman to go after Cruz?

Contrast this with eight years of Obama halo photos:

Why, yes, we can.

This comes after a weekend orgy of Democrats calling for — surprise! — yet more gun control in the wake of the Charleston shootings. Weird how Democrats are silent about this. Here’s AP’s flimsy excuse.

“Presidential candidate Ted Cruz,” Paul Colford, vice president & director of media relations, said, “was shown in a series of 14 photos taken by an Associated Press photographer at a ‘Celebrate the 2nd Amendment’ event Saturday afternoon, held at a shooting range in Johnston, Iowa. Five of the photos published by AP included images of guns seen on a wall in the background so that it appeared a pistol was pointed at Sen. Cruz’s head.

“The images were not intended to portray Sen. Cruz in a negative light,” Colford said.

Sure, that’s believable.

    Rusty Bill: This is beyond propaganda. It is pure evil. Yes, it is news. It is an outrage for conservatives. It’s humor for the left.

    They are not even pretending anymore. And they wonder why they are hated. Full on leftist propaganda, indeed.

    Said it on Twitchy, will say it here;

    Photoshop Obama in place of Cruz and watch the twittersphere explode with Leftist outrage. Then reveal the original photo and watch the Left become morally double- and triple-jointed to justify the original and still say the version with President Boyfriend is somehow not acceptable.

    If the photo had been of Comrade Hussein, the Secret Service would have carted the miscreant photographer away.
