Lefty Threaten AZ Tea Party Leader

As reported on Gateway Pundit

While Trent was speaking at the event, an audience member screamed, “Trent Humphries, you’re dead!”

ABC News held a town hall event today in Tucson, Arizona. Local officials, friends and heroes were at the event. News anchor Christiane Amanpour was the host. The segment will air tomorrow. ABC gathered members from the Tucson community to discuss the tragic shooting last Saturday that wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and left 6 people dead.
State Representative Terri Proud was at the event sitting between Trent and the violent audience member. Terri was there to speak about the local gun laws. She described the scene to me just minutes ago:
Trent Humphries, the Pima County tea party leader, stood up to speak during the event. He was being very respectful. Trent told the audience that before we start placing blame on individuals we need to get all the facts. Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy… While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”
The ABC producer said he was not sure if they will show incident tomorrow, or not.
Trent was finished with his statement and sat down. Terri said she was concerned since she was sitting right between Trent and this violent leftist. Trent sat down and ABC continued with the taping. Two police officers jumped in immediately to remove the violent leftist.
Trent Humphries has been receiving death threats all week since the national media and their leftist cohorts began blaming the tea party for the shooting by the leftwing pothead. Currently, government officials are checking his mail for him due to the threats.
Please keep Trent and his young family and all the Tucson tea party members in your thoughts and prayers.
UPDATE….. The unhinged leftist J. Eric Fuller was charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

This is the same guy that Mr Bruce Fealk commented on over at Bonsai From the Right yesterday to somehow justify his argument that the conservative right somehow was responsible for the Giffords shooting one week ago.
Looks like this guy and the rest of the Progressive nuts (including Mr Fealk) just can't except that there is no puzzle for which to connect the conservative right to Jared Loughner.
Another witness has come forward of what took place at this town hall event.

YES, PLEASE keep the guy who wasn't shot or hadn't witnessed the affair in your prayers while you call the angry US military veteran who had been shot and wounded unhinged.

And of course Humphries would press charges after all there's nothing like sympathy for the real victims of this tragedy.

I wonder if PTSD is a viable legal defense?

I keep them all in my prayers.
However, Joe, he has no idea Jared's motive, but clings on to the lefts BS talking points.
You said it yourself... There IS NO connection. But this guy spews the same BULLSHIT that MSNBC and the NY Times spewed 2 hours after this tragic event.
Who knows what Humphries will do. But it shows the left are prepared to get violent with people WHO HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT WHAT SO EVER!

Joe you just can't do it can you? No matter what you blame the conservatives. Somehow you found a way to comment on Marks prayers rather then comment on what the post subject. You just keep protecting these crazy leftist Joe. Why is that? Joe if you were getting death threats and someone screamed out that you were dead I find it hard to believe that you would just sit their like a lump. Those death threat are real unlike the manufactured threats from the right. I think the left also need to look at the way this dialogue is being directed. Joe your intelectual dishonesty is as clear as the nose on my face. Can you hold the left to the same standard as you hold the right for a change Joe? Thanks.

Clearly the guy making the threats is under some duress and needs help. But to act like he is just some wacko is silly. He's obviously dealing with the tragedy poorly and should receive some therapy.

But for the Tea Party guy to act like the victim in this is uncalled for. As is calling him an unhinged leftist. The gentleman was injured and suffered from the event like others and he did handle the mental issues that arose from it well. Thats all.

1. Who are you to judge which death threats are real and which aren't?

2. Mark's calls for prayers, along with the name calling towards a victim of the Gifford's incident was nothing more than partisan BS. I am well within logic thought to suggest that and move on. nothing dishonest there.

3. What is dishonest about realizing that victims of crime and incidents like the shooting often react poorly and do incredibly stupid things because their brain is struggling to overcome itself? I didn't say it was okay, nor that i agreed with his actions, just that Mark was wrong to portray the Tea Party leader as the victim and the victim as unhinged.

4. I offered PTSD as a possible defense because i don't feel that from these actions in this context that he's unhinged, just that he's dealing with a serious mental trauma and poorly at that. Its not intellectually dishonest to believe that he deserves mental health therapy more than Jail.

1. HUH?
2. Victim or not, he made the threat based on false reports and ideology. FACT!
3. The TPP is a victim here in this incident, as he, nor ANY TPP did anything to cause Mr Fullers injuries. But he attacks verbally.
4. But Joe defends this guy by only his injury and perceived PTSD, with nothing to back it up.
If PTSD had anything to do with is, why did he NOT make the threat to anyone else in that meeting? He aimed his verbal attack on the Tucson TPP leader.

All your points, Joe, and this guys threat are a direct results of the immediate finger pointing by the left MSM hacks. The threat and rhetoric by the MSM incited this guys threat.

UNLIKE Palin's rhetoric had anything to do with Loughners actions.
Hope you understand the difference.
