    And is fueling the right-wing talking points.

    Fuller didn't threaten anyone's life. They were talking about gun control, he was using the camera as a stand-in for a gun and pointing out how quickly your life is over when you are faced with a gun.

    That man is getting fucked over and is galling to watch Dkos help the MSM and the Repubs turn him into a joke.

    Fucking think before you shoot off your mouth.

      •  Did you read what I wrote? (0+ / 0-)

        Or did you just read the subject line?

        Cause it seems like the latter.

        •  Your suggestion that the camera (0+ / 0-)

          was a stand in for a gun is not based on any evidence.

          Humphries was asked about gun control, but his answers had nothing to do with gun control; they were mainly talking points (applause, media, etc.).

          Fuller is clearly troubled and said something that is totally inappropriate and reacted badly to Humphries and his statements.

      •  I have more to say (3+ / 0-)

        The entire discussion was about gun control because Humphries turned it into that and whenever he got called on it, he cried that the left was making it political. His neighbor, that he supposedly loved is dead, and he's on television and giving interviews trying to score political points and bagging on Giffords in interviews.

        And why does Humphries supposed pain mean more than the guy who was there and shot?

        Seriously, what is wrong with some of the commenters here. Now we're defending Tea Partiers? This place has really turned to shit.

        •  Not true. (0+ / 0-)

          Read the transcript.  Watch the video.

          No one's defending the TPers.

          And I am not going to make stuff up to cover for what Fuller did.  He said it, he shouldn't have but there are extenuating circumstances.

          He had PTSD before the shootings, and he himself was shot twice last week.  I'd be pretty upset too.

          But....threats are not the answer.

          From anybody.
