Sheriff Dupnik Must Resign
rights of the innocent regardless of party affiliation, has made it clear he is
unable to carry out his duties in an unbiased manner. Nor is this the first
time he has shown himself unable to set politics aside in the performance of his
duty. When Arizona passed the bill dealing with illegal immigration, he refused
to enforce the law.
conservatives on radio and television and from the Tea Party led to nineteen
people being shot and six of them murdered. He called his own home state of
Arizona a “Mecca of bigotry and hatred.” Other Democrats are echoing the
slander, claiming that the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh,
and all conservatives are responsible for the deaths of our fellow Americans in
Given the spotlight, he could not bring himself to behave like a professional
law enforcement officer and stick with the facts. He used his fifteen minutes
of fame to lash out at political opponents by calling them bigots, racists, and
inciters of violence, lumping in the entire state of Arizona. He failed to
acknowledge that the only violence at a Tea Party event was perpetrated by
Democrat Teamster thugs against a black Tea Party activist. As a black
American, I think those who throw around the labels of “bigot,” “racist,” and
“hater” are guilty of the very thing of which they accuse others, and they do
our country a great disservice.
law-abiding citizens across the country while overlooking the calling cards of a
disturbed man. It is clear that Jared Loughner, in his demented condition,
rejected God and all moral absolutes. There was the discovery of his backyard
shrine — containing a skull with burnt oranges — and reports that his favorite
books included The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf. This
is all anti-Christian behavior. Should we blame liberals and the ACLU for
creating an atmosphere of hostility to Christianity, Judeo-Christian, values and
the God of the Bible?
must stop romanticizing and minimizing the risks of mental illness. We need to
get help for people who are a danger to themselves and others, not shut down
vigorous political discourse in our country. Liberals can make the process of
debate much less bitter by sticking to the issues rather than calling people
names. A good start would be for Democrats to ask Sheriff Dupnik to resign and
go home to take a long look in the mirror. Then maybe his Democrat colleagues
will do the same.
Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and all those involved in the senseless
shooting at her event. There is no place in our society for violent attacks of
any kind, especially against those who selflessly choose to serve in public
office. Our nation prides itself on civility. May God bring strength to them
and their families, and to our entire nation.
stopped to ask, “Are you conservative, liberal, heterosexual, homosexual, black,
or white?” Americans stepped in and helped each other. That is who we are.
The actions of one deranged individual should not be exploited to advance the
liberals’ political obsession with silencing their opponents.
demonstration of the greatness of our country. Real Americans do not ask how a
crisis can be used for political gain. We act in unity and common concern for
each other without regard to race, gender, or politics. We respond to crisis by
rising to the occasion, not lowering ourselves to using innocent victims as
pawns in a political game. The attack on conservatives and the Tea Party, or
the attempt to associate this unbalanced individual with them, is irresponsible
and beneath contempt.
entertainment industry makes billions selling violent movies, lyrics, and video
games, liberals consistently argue that these expressions are not to blame for
any crimes or self-destructive behavior. “Leave these ‘artists’ alone,” they
cry. However, because they think they can further their political agenda, they
enthusiastically claim that an act by one deranged individual was caused by the
“tone” of conservative rhetoric heard in the media. No reasonable person would
conclude that free speech should be illegal because some deranged person might
be incited to violence.
