So, in case you hadn’t heard, just a few days ago, a crazed gunman killed a hero in a small, rural state. This murderer claims to have been a lone actor, but we all know he’s really part of a larger conspiracy. We also know that he’s a religious extremist and was motivated by those fanatical beliefs when he took that hero’s life.

Those who share his extreme beliefs are claiming that they had nothing to do with this killer’s actions. They say they don’t “condone” what he did, but we all know they’re secretly thrilled that this hero is dead.

Unfortunately, the media has hardly paid any attention to the tragic death of this brave man.


What’s that you say? You say that there’s been non-stop coverage of the death of late-term abortionist, George Tiller?

Well, you’re right about that. The murder of George Tiller sure has gotten a lot of media attention. And sadly, yes, George Tiller is a hero to many sick people.

But I’m talking about the cold-blooded murder of a real hero.

I’m talking about the assassination of a young man who was murdered on a sidewalk in Arkansas by a Muslim extremist simply because he had decided to devote his life to serving his country and defending our freedom in our armed forces.

William Long, 23, died in this shooting incident just outside of a military recruiting center, and another young soldier, Quinton Ezeagwula, 18, was wounded and is in stable condition.

Where is the outrage in the liberal blogosphere over these shootings? Why aren’t they denouncing this killing and proclaiming it an act of “domestic terrorism?”

Oh, that’s right. They are a bunch of hypocrites and they don’t really feel that bad about a soldier losing his life.

Sorry… temporary lapse in memory.
