Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney was gunned down this morning at Party Headquarters in Little Rock. The shooter was apprehended, after being himself shot by police.
Authorities aren't releasing any information on the suspect. Let me do a little prophesying. This guy will turn out to be a divorced, unemployed, white male, perhaps a veteran, in his late 40s or 50s. He will be a homophobe but insecure about his own sexuality. He will be politically conservative. He listens to Rush Limbaugh every day. He watches Bill O'Rielly on Fox News. A small library of conservative, hate literature will be found in his small but tidy apartment. He will have a history of domestic violence and stalking of women but never challenges authority or those he is intimidated by. Many who know him will say he is a real nice guy. He will have a chronic history of job loss, due to his inability to get along with people of diverse backgrounds. He will turn out to be a big fan of Chuck Norris and Steven Segal.
The conservative talking assholes are going to once again deny that they advocate murder and hate crime violence in the furtherance of their cause. They will, once again, be lying. Every foul tactic that they employ to sway the mind of America is based in fear, terrorism and ultimately, violence and death for any who don't go along. They encourage disciples to threaten, intimidate, punish and perpetrate violence and death on those who do not follow the creed. They are foul, treasonous scum who pervert the values that they pretend to venerate and the religion that they pretend to believe in.
