Clearly TMZ is a biased, liberal, Sarah Palin hating website. Harvey, you're kind of a joke. Let's not forget, you live in California with the rest of the whackos who gave us Nancy Pelosi, and decided that an Austrian guy with a background in body building and acting was the best qualified candidate to lead you out of the debt ridden cellar that your state has been in for SEVERAL years now, and back into prosperity.

Do yourselves a favor folks.....NEVER listen to a Californian in the realm of politics. They typically don't know their anus from a hole in the ground in the political arena.

"Andy are you going to be the next shooter? What the HELL are you talking about???? Go read the history book dude. THAT revolution was for a good course. What GOOD COURSE do you see in a VIOLENT revolution NOW? "

@Janeny

The question was: 'Violent revolution -- ever ok?'

That word 'EVER' speaks volumes and most certainly includes the American Revolutionary War in its context.

My God - even TMZ is jumping on the 'let's politicize this based on no info' bandwagon. You folks should stick to gossip - this story should not be in your purview nor should this tragedy be reduced to your idiotic "polls".

Shame on you TMZ for pointing a finger on someone who has nothing to do with this shooting. The shooter was a liberal and he KILLED a republican Federal Judge on top of the fact that Gabby was a blue dog. I bet 90% of the people that read this don't even know what a blue dog is. Get your stories straight. I can't even stand sarah palin - but how dare you sensationalize this story and point fingers at someone who wasn't even there. If the shooter was a liberal why would he care who sarah palin wants out of office? The problem with this country is that most of the people who vote get thier political education from websites like this that don't know thier ass from a hole in the wall. DISGUSTED.

It is stupid to blame the TeaParty for this tragedy. The shooter was an obvious nutjob who needs help . What he did he did against freedom and our country. We all need to listen more when people are voicing their outrage !

It was an act of true cowardice imo.

My thoughts are with the victims and their families today.

Sarah is in no way responsible for this. The shooter was a far left nutjob.

"How in the world, can any United States citizen suggest "NO" to this question??? Our country was founded as the result of a "necessary", violent revolution. It must be easier to forget, when we are constantly re-writing the history books, or dismissing them altogether. Violent revolution brought necessary freedom to North America, and laid the groundwork for the current rights and liberty which we are afforded today.

JANEY ! ! ! READ THE EFFING QUESTION !!!!!!

"Violent revolution -- ever ok?"

The word "EVER" means something, as do most words.

Don't attempt to affix labels where they do not apply.

I am a very non-confrontational, non-violent person, by the way!!! Enjoy the remainder of your day . . .

I can't see how you would NOT be able to point fingers at Palin, after putting crosshairs on the US map. This person does not have her finger on the pulse of America! You simply don't do that, if you do, you incite this type of anger.
Prayers to All involved.

Ummm... is that all you got? They are targeting STATES. Sarah Palin targeted PEOPLE. Giffords was among them.

Ummm ... One would like to think that the Sarah Palin bashers are capable of puting 2 and 2 together … i.e. which STATES are represented by which PEOPLE and name the people as well as to work it out what policies they represent .. Or aren’t they? :-)

===============================================================
SO much hate in here!

People shouldn’t be too hasteful in judgement.
They may be accused of inciting the hateful campaign themselves even further !!!!!! Don’t give any more weirdos any more stupid ideas for the future, please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sheriff Dupnik revealed Jared Loughner had made previous threats to kill but not against Ms Giffords. 'All I can tell you is that this person may have a mental issue,' he added.
In one of several Youtube videos, Loughner described inventing a new U.S. currency and complained about the illiteracy rate among people living in Ms Giffords' congressional district in Arizona.
Postings included a number of bizarre anti-government messages and a picture of a handgun resting on a U.S. history book. He also claimed he was 'a mind controller... able to control every religion'. He is also a fanatical believer in Main Kamp AND .. a Mao communist doctrine! At the same time .. Etc etc

SO what do you make of that?!? Are you still blaming Sarah Palin ?!?!?!
And, yes! As much as some people wouldn't want to admit it - Democrats also used targets on their maps too. Fortunately nby has been shot then!!

Anybody who STILL lays the blame on anybody other then the actual shooter is off the rocker and wants the hateful campaign to go on and on and to score just a cheap political point only.

This is a time to pray for and think of the dead, the injured and of their families. Bless them all at this tragic time of yet another senseless loss.

BANNING automatic weapons isint going to resolve anything .Drugs are illegal u can still find them everywhere . PERHAPS IF PEOPLE EXERCISED THEIR RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS SOMEBODY COULD HAVE SHOT AND KILLED THE 22 YEAR OLD PERPERPETRATOR BEFORE HE SHOT AND KILLED A SIX YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL........................

What a stupid thing to say, especially in light of what has just happened. Nobody should be advocating for bodily harm to anybody.
