Tucson Tea Party Leader Threatened At ABC Taping, Democrat Eric Fuller In Audience Screams: ‘Trent Humphries You’re Dead!’

At the end of the town hall meeting Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.” He also claimed Beck, Palin, etc caused shooting .

Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.

“I would put Sarah Palin in first place there. I think, really, she should be incarcerated for treason for advocating assassinating public officials,” Fuller said in an interview with Media Matters. “



ABC News held a town hall event yesterday in Tucson, Arizona. Local officials, friends and heroes were at the event. News anchor Christiane Amanpour was the host. ABC gathered members from the Tucson community to discuss the tragic shooting last Saturday that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and left 6 people dead.

State Representative Terri Proud was at the event sitting between Trent and the violent audience member. Terri was there to speak about the local gun laws. She described the scene:

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.”

Trent was finished with his statement and sat down. Terri said she was concerned since she was sitting right between Trent and this violent leftist. Trent sat down and ABC continued with the taping. Two police officers jumped in immediately to remove the violent leftist.

Trent Humphries has been receiving death threats all week since the national media and their leftist cohorts began blaming the tea party for the shooting by the leftwing pothead. Currently, government officials are checking his mail for him due to the threats.

The unhinged leftist J. Eric Fuller was arrested for threatening to kill a tea party leader live on national TV and was charged with with threats and intimidation.


Tucson Victim "Outraged" Giffords Was Shot

Eric Fuller was shot in Tucson Ariz. Saturday during the rampage Jared Loughner is accused of carrying out.

Fuller, 63, a military veteran, former limo driver and avid tennis player, is a strong supporter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

He cut a tennis game short Saturday so he could hear her speak, only to be shot in the leg and hit in the back with bullet fragments. He drove himself to the hospital and was released Monday.

On "The Early Show" Tuesday, Fuller said he's "doing fine, physically. Miraculously, feeling very lucky. I'm outraged that someone like Gabrielle Giffords was attacked."


ABC isn’t reporting this “event” that occurred in THEIR OWN STUDIOS!!!???

ABC World News Reports Threat at its Tucson Town Hall Meeting, Omits That The Threat Was Made To a Tea Party Member

A survivor of last week's Tucson shootings issued a death threat to a Tea Party member Saturday in the middle of a taping for a town hall meeting to be aired on ABC's "This Week."

For some reason, ABC World News Saturday in its report about the gathering chose to omit the seriousness of the threat and that it was made to a Tea Partier. ABC's David Muir says "he mumbled what seems to be a threat"


Wild Thing's comment........

This is all very concerning!!!! Sheriff Dupnik is also responsible for this mess and Obama too with his "get ikn their face" and other threats he has made. .

Evidently this Fuller guy also tried to visit with the shooters’ parents:

Fuller told 12 News that he was there "to forgive them and possibly their son," but the couple wasn't home. The younger Loughner remains in jail and has been denied bail.

Here's a statement concerning Fuller and the shooting.

“He said earlier this week he was hit by a bullet when he dove to the ground to play dead. He decided that because he didn’t have any medical training to help others, he walked to his car and drove himself to the nearest hospital.”

Fuller is the one who claimed he was hit by a bullet at the meeting. He claims since he didn't have medical training, he didn't stay to help others...a coward who only thought of himself. He just casually walked to his car and drove himself to a hospital. I would think if you're hit in the knee, it would be difficult to walk. And, I would also think that the news would be reporting of a victim who drove himself to the hospital.

I seriously wonder if Fuller was even shot at the event that wounded and killed the others? He wouldn't be the first person in history who shot, stabbed, or maimed himself to gain notoriety. Being a victim of this tragedy will give him a moral superiority to act like the jerk he is.

Also, can any of you here see a honorable military veteran not staying to help others?

Bob, to begin with not all Military Veterans are honorable, Mr. Fuller is obviously one of those few who are not.

The real point of all of this is that the Press and Media continues to agitate and stir the pot of Public Opinion. We are witnessing a classic example of fact manipulation with a whole lot of innuendo added, in order to make a point that is totally wrong.

Think of any powerful Government/Dictatorship in History and you will see that the same exact technique has been usewd to strengthen the position of those in power and weaken or in some cases destroy, any opposition.

Sean, I well understand that. That's why I made the statement "honorable military veteran". This Fuller person is definitely not honorable in any shape, fashion, or form.

And, speaking of, did anybody wonder about all the applause and cheering at the supposed Memorial Service conducted by Obama. Here's the reason why.

Well so much for obamas speech on 'Civility'. So how does the media spin this. How 's this Sarah Palins fault?

Posted by: Mark at January 16, 2011 12:33 PM

Are jumbotrons now SOP at memorial services? Did the news show or mention the jumbotron? The MSM is so deeply embedded in covering obama's butt that it is almost embarassing.

Any innocent person shot just a week ago might well be angry, and understandably, but one like minded or so swayed politically can easily misdirect his anger as in this instant case.

This is another clear example of how liberals in public office like Sheriff Dupnik turn their own citizens against each other, instead of simply fulfilling his sworn duty as a law enforcement officer in an evidence oriented and fact seeking position within the law's ongoing pursuit of justice.

That's my take on this.

Relativism is an integral and dangerous component of liberalism:

-that only serves to further cloud the mind:

It may well be the time for this nation to got to the streets to settle this. Being a 5th generation Texan, I am seriously in favor of Restoring the Lone Star Republic. The United States has clearly violated the intent of the Union that we once joined willingly and once were forced to rejoin.

I'd like to see a scrap between Texas and the Chicago political machine. Hint: We won't bring knives.

Ah, those wacky left/libtards! It's still Bush and Palin's fault-- if the the TEA Partiers weren't so hateful by having a different opinion they'd have never incited Fuller to the point he couldn't control his fat mouth! (What a douchebag.)
