    It's not about logic or loons; it's about making liberals/progressives/Dems/Kossacks deny any connection.

    Red State: "You guys at the Daily Kos were probably best friends with the shooter, who has sex with barn animals."

    Daily Kos: "What? Of course not!" [Many examples of why this is a political and ethical unlikelihood. Translation, courtesy RS: "Blah blah blah."]

    They got the first shot in, which leaves us denying (and factually so) any link. Averting our eyes does nothing to help us, but it doesn't discourage this stupidity and malice, either.

    We are better served by saying "It's a shame that Red State and its readers support a racist who thinks it's ok to murder a hard-working husband and father with a weapon he wasn't legally allowed to own."

      Classic rhetorical trap.  Best response is not to play: just say "Pfffft!"

      "I would say to you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!" Bzzzt! Sorry Barry, thanks for playing.

        Red State did allow him to publish (I am assuming some degree of agreement from posters, judging from what I've read). He is a racist. He thought murder was a acceptable course of action. The guard was a family man. Shooter was a convicted felon who should not have been allowed to own that weapon.

        These are facts. If RS posters are going to get in our faces with falsehoods, then we should answer with the facts. Haven't we (I mean posters) had the "fight back" discussion here many times? (Yes, this is a small skirmish and will blow over in moments, but the meme that the shooter was on the left is scary and false and we should rebut it.)

        I like you and your posts, Dallasdoc, but we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

          Free Republic, not Red State.  There was a diary yesterday aboout his screed - which had been well-received - being taken down by the "moderators" after the attack.

          When in doubt, tweak the freeqs.
