Clyburn: Reading the Constitution provoked murder spree in Tucson, or something; Update: Referring to Birther outburst?

posted at 2:55 pm on January 10, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

In the race to see which politico makes the biggest ass out of himself over the shooting spree in Tucson, Arizona, we can report that so far the frontrunners appear to be Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina and former Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, both Democrats.  In a rambling interview on the radio with Ed Schultz, Clyburn complains about people attempting to “delegitimize the President” and suggested that the reading of the Constitution in Congress last week had something to do with the shooting.  Real Clear Politics has the audio [see update II]:

“All [of] this stuff taking place in the Chambers the other day, when the Constitution was being read — all that stuff is uncalled for,” Rep. Clyburn (D-SC) told the Ed Schultz radio program.

Clyburn says there may be a “direct link” between Sharron Angle’s “Second Amendment remedies” comment and the reading of the Constitution with the attempted murder of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords over the weekend.

Of course, no one has ever heard the Constitution without committing a murder spree, so obviously Clyburn is on the right track here.  As far as “All that stuff about delegitimizing the President of the United States, that was uncalled for,” one may wonder whether Clyburn was as particular about that in 2001 as he is in 2011.  Wonder no longer:

The November election points to serious problems in our voting process in America.  We consider ourselves the premiere democracy in the world and expect other nations to emulate our example.  Our government sends officials overseas to “monitor” elections to insure their veracity.  And yet, the 2000 election in America will go down in history as one so rife with errors that the true outcome will remain forever in question.

Unfortunately for Clyburn, Kerrey is making a strong run for the championship himself, as RCP again captures.  Kerrey says that the perp was “mentally ill and deeply troubled,” and therefore Kerrey said he would demur from making too much of his political beliefs — right after Kerrey announces that the attack was motivated by the upcoming vote to repeal ObamaCare.  Click the image to watch the clip from today’s Imus show:

Tomorrow they were going to vote to repeal this health care bill — and it’s not going to go anywhere in the Senate — it’s one of the reasons that this guy was angry and pretty obvious that he is, at least from me, where I sit that he’s mentally ill and deeply troubled.  I wouldn’t make too much of whatever his political views are.

Aaaaaaaand Kerrey knows that … how?  Does Kerrey have any evidence — any at all — that Loughner supported or opposed ObamaCare?  Or that he gave a tinker’s damn about Congressional procedure or symbolic votes?  No, but then again, Kerrey seems to have based his viewpoint on the same source that the media has used to claim that Loughner’s attack came from “heated rhetoric,” which is the collective nether regions of those who pine for attention.

Let’s hope that Clyburn and Kerrey remain the frontrunners for this prize, and that future contenders think twice before qualifying for the award.

Update: Clyburn is from South Carolina, not North Carolina.  My apologies for the error.

Update II: Radley Balko of Reason says on Twitter that Clyburn was talking about the Birther outburst during the reading of the Constitution and not the Constitution itself.  The audio clip at RCP doesn’t have Clyburn mentioning that, but that intent makes some sense in the context of what Clyburn said.  It’s still a stupid thing to say — claiming that a Birther outburst caused Loughner to commit mass murder and attempt to kill Giffords is every bit as absurd as claiming that a crosshair on a political website did it — but it’s important to get Clyburn’s intent correct.

He talks real good too don’t he now? I wonder if you asked him to elaborate as to what “stuff” he was talking about would he look down at the floor and say “oh looky…something shiny”!

sicoit on January 10, 2011 at 3:38 PM

The thing that bothers me is that the left is spinning out of control on this one. The facts are in about the killer and yet they are lashing out in all directions. Some explanations, like Clyburn’s, don’t even make sense but they must persist in the narrative- that this is the fault of conservatives. They don’t seem to be backing down as of yet.

I don’t know what to expect, but I don’t trust this.

I don’t understand why nobody is telling these idiots to shut the hell up, no wonder our country is going to crap. Look at the people who are supposed to be in charge. Everything that drips from their lips is either BS or insanity. Guam is going to tip over, there is a flag on Mars, Shara Palin is the master-brain behind a mass-murderer, the list just goes on and on, and these two morons just added to it. Why Ed Schultz is even relevant is beyond me, they guy is nothing but a blowfish. But I guess the crazies need a place to vent too. Once again they have managed to take something that needs to be delete with in a mature and adult manner and made it into a three ring circus.

I know I shouldn’t shocked by these complete demagogic clowns on the Left, but I have to admit I am still amazed at how totally and shrilly they lost their minds in the interest of demonizing conservatives this weekend, without even an ounce of caution or judgment.

That was out early this morning – I read someone made it up someone put up a link and said people could check for themselves he is registered Independent.

This must be the radical middle that Tom Friedman likes to go on about. He was a guest on Imus. He was talking trash about Independents after the Mid Terms election, because we shifted to the right.

Jared Lee Loughner is registered as an independent and last voted in the 2008

Doug Ross has a summary of information from various sources around the ‘net about the nutjob Jared Lee Loughner. On twitter, left wing nut jobs are passing around a photoshopped image of Loughner’s voting information. Of course, the only way one would obtain access to this information directly from the Secretary of State’s site would be if they had Loughner’s voter ID number or driver’s license number. As you would expect, the photoshopped image being circulated claims Loughner is registered as a Republican. Sadly for the left, their little lie has been exposed. Jared Lee Loughner is a registered independent, and hasn’t voted since 2008. This information was posted by Doug Ross (linked above), who quoted an Arizona newspaper. I trust the newspaper more than I do some pathetic attempt at photoshop by the left wing fringe.

This was not an act of politics. This was an act of a mentally disturbed young man hell bent on getting his 15 minutes of infamy. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department was aware of his violent nature and they failed to act appropriately. This tragedy leads right back to Sheriff Dupnik and all the spin in the world is not going to change that fact.

Sorry, OT, but Instapundit picked this up from Cholla’s blog.

Wethal on January 10, 2011 at 3:07 PM

I actually think this is right on topic.

It was the Sheriff that first said it was Palin’s fault.

The same sheriff who didn’t do his job and protect the public from this crazy, violent monster.

The Sheriff successfully got everyone to talk about “political rhetoric” rather than that he is the one who failed.

This Sheriff failed in his job and pointed the finger at anyone he could think of.

And the left-wingers (whose company Gifford pointedly avoided) grabbed the relay-stick, because they see it as in their best interest to smear the reputations of the innocent.

3)that individuals like Clyburn continue to get re-elected?

That is interesting. I watched the news program thing on this last night & from how they described her, I could probably realyl like her.
Some of her ideas may not mesh with mine, but she sounds like a Dem you could debate with.
Course I guess I don’t really know for sure.

This Clyburn fellow, he is base on with the intelligence of that Congressman who thought Guam was tipping over, who was that? I know that other guy was black. Oh I am so racist!
You know, I laugh when I hear this stuff. But insde, part of me cries bcs I cannot believe how much society has bought into this insane way of thinking.

The sad thing about this pathetic old hack is that when fellow Dem John Lewis, a veteran of the civil rights campaign, read out the Thirteenth Amendment, everyone applauded Lewis.

I’m not absolving him, but other than trying to tie Loughner’s acts to OCare he was saying to not politicize this. I would love to see Kerrey retract the OCare tie-in as thoughtless and wrong.

It probably won’t happen though. Sigh.

Repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it.

Liberals have started their anti-Tea Party, anti-Sarah Palin and anti-Republican narrative and they’re going to keep flogging it for as long as they can so that as many people as possible get the idea in their head that it’s true- regardless of how many facts contradict it.

Get the “information” out there as early and as often as possible to influence the greatest number of people (while they’re paying attention to the big story of the day). Add in a largely complicit media that won’t question the lies being spewed and you have a very effective method of smearing your political opponents.

Even UK papers like the Daily Mail are still running an anti-Palin, anti-conservative story.

It’s despicable, disgusting and shameless- but they’ll keep doing it for as long as they can get away with it.

http://mediamatters.org/press/releases/201101100014

On Beck’s radio show, he and Palin jovially mocked my concern. For seven minutes on air, the pair joked about my plea to tone down the rhetoric. Beck said it was “laughable,” “sad,” and compared me to the “smelly kid in third grade.” Palin giggled and said I was “silly” and that my argument was “pathetic” and “desperate” before ultimately concluding, “I stand with you, Glenn.”

That’s enough to send anyone over the edge.

If you listen more closely to the audio (and or review the text again) Clyburn says:

“All [of] this stuff taking place in the Chambers the other day, when the Constitution was being read — all that stuff is uncalled for,”

I believe he’s referring to the birther’s heckling outburst during the reading of the section outlining the prerequisites of being POTUS. As much as I don’t care for Clyburn, I don’t believe he meant the reading of the Constitution provoked this atrocity.

Clyburn has always been an embarrassment to South Carolina. He is in a gerrymandered district that insures his election. Bob Kerrey must be suffering from dementia. This insane twerp who did this shooting was listening to voices in his head. He was 22 years old and probably could not care less about healthcare legislation.

Jared Loughner has been making death threats by phone to many people in Pima County including staff of Pima Community College, radio personalities and local bloggers. When Pima County Sheriff’s Office was informed, his deputies assured the victims that he was being well managed by the mental health system.

I have to take pause with this story simply because the people he supposedly threaten have not uttered a word as of late about this. You’d think we would see the blogs or the news media light up with this story of him threatening many people if this was true. sometimes smoke is simply made with a smoke machine.

I cannot believe that clyburn does not appreciate the constitution. It is, however, the reason that someone does not own him right now.

Listen, I’m the first one to call these idiots out, but it’s possible that Clyburn was referring to that heckler in the Chambers during the reading of the Constitution.

Again, I’m just saying it’s a possibility. Read again: “All [of] this stuff taking place in the Chambers the other day, when the Constitution was being read — all that stuff is uncalled for.”

I’d say Kerrey wins this…

Check the update. Clyburn is an idiot but has been misinterpreted in this instance.

Re the update, this makes Clyburn no less nutty. The ‘outburst’ was a few words, not clearly heard, not that widely reported, and there’s no hint that Loughner cared about the eligibility of the Bamster. In fact I found it odd that in all the crap he wrote, Bammie was mentioned very little if at all.

MLK would be so proud oh his racist former lieutenant…NOT

Lesson, don’t engage keyboard prior to engaging one’s brain…Clyburn wasn’t one of MLK’s former Lietenants. He just reminds me of one…
