Democrat ‘Progressives’ Now Using Giffords Shooting for Fund Raising

From Emerging Corruption and Warner Todd Huston:

Unbelievable: Democrat Group Using Gifford’s Shooting For Fundraiser!

January 10, 2011

An extreme, left-wing Democrat group calling itself 21st Century Democrats has had the gall to send out an email blast using as a fundraising tool Saturday’s criminal shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona. Judge John Roll and four others were killed in the incident, one of them a 9-year-old girl, but these Democrats are ignorant enough to be using this incident to try and squeeze donations from its supporters. Some might think the action of 21st Century Democrats is itself a crime — a crime against decency.

The email blast sent out Sunday morning to its supporters tells members that “we don’t know yet” why Jared Loughner shot Gabrielle Giffords but goes on to lay the blame on Sarah Palin and Gifford’s opponent in the past election for using “violent imagery” in his campaign.

The email goes on to ask members to “join us in sharing your thoughts and prayers to the Congresswoman and her family by visiting our website where we have set up a page for you to do so.” Naturally once you click on the link you are taken to a page that prominently displays the group’s DONATE NOW button. It is not in the slightest way discreetly designed. As soon as you go to this so-called prayers page you see a large button asking for donations and another one underneath it urging visitors to “sign up” for email blasts and information.

Disgustingly, 21st Century Democrats is using this crime in a fundraising effort.

This frenzie of neo-Marxist opportunism at the suffering of a politician has begun to remind this webziner of the infamous 2002 memorial for Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota and of the long tainted and unfortunately named “Democrat-Farmer-Labor Party.”  Maybe I’ll feature a video of that here, after a while.  Not yet, though.  I’ll ponder that.
