Hillary Clinton Says Tucson Shooting Was Extremism Like The Al Qaeda

Clinton: Arizona shooting a form of 'extremism"


Hillary Clinton told CNN that she believes the shooting tragedy in Tucson, Arizona was motivated from “political extremism.”

“Based on what I know, this is a criminal defendant who was in some ways motivated by his own political views, who had a particular animus toward the congresswoman, and I think when you cross the line from expressing opinions that are of conflicting differences in our political environment into taking action – violent action- that’s a hallmark of extremism. Whether it comes from the right, the left, Al Qaeda, from anarchists, whoever it is.”

In remarks on the shooting in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, Clinton said the incident was proof there were extremists in the U.S.

"I think that when you're a criminal who is in some way pursuing criminal activity connected to - however bizarre and poorly thought through - your political views, that's a form of extremism," she said on Wednesday.

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

Good Lord! To compare what happened in AZ. to what the Al Qaeda is about????!!!!

When Nidal Hassan killed 13 and wounded 32 at Fort Hood in what by all accounts (those of first hand witnesses and those with prior experience with Hassan) an act of islamic terrorism - Obama and crew nearly bent themselves in half trying to disassociate his horrific act of terrorism from his ideaology. They IMMEDIATLY blamed EVERYTHING other than the reality that this pile of filth chose to kill his fellow soldiers in the name of allah.

Then this killer in AZ. who is a REGISTERED INDEPENDENT, who has NO history of political activism, and who has NO affiliation with right-wing causes is represented in front of our nation and by THE SECRETARY OF STATE IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE WORLD as an "extremist."

When will these people remove their collective heads from their collective asses!? There is no evidence the shooter was motivated by politics! An extremist may be quite sane but highly motivated and willing to die for a cause. This dude was just a nut-job!

He also was a left leaning Anachist, his fascination with Marx, Hitler, movies like Zeitgeist, and their spinoffs. His whole idea was to create chaos. This what they do, their ultimate aim is to instill some new radical form of government Preferably Communism. The same agenda as obama.

Right petesuj,
Hit the link and then go to the link for The Herald Sun, an Australian newspaper for a great article on our Media and it's bias in this case. Already Gifford's shooter is labeled a terrorist, DOJ is considering domestic terrorism charges and the Muzzie Maj., they can't even bring themselves to use the word terrorism. WTF?
