Kidding Aside, Sarah, Here’s Your Chance to “Refudiate” Right Wing Violence

So, it’s been quite a weekend for those whom Sister Sarah likes to call “Tea Party Americans.” Shortly after the half-term ex-governor asked President Obama to “refudiate” the NAACP for its resolution condemning racist elements in the Tea Party, the Tea Party was, uh, forced to expel Tea Party Express Leader Mark Williams for posting a racist, supposedly satirical “letter” to Abraham Lincoln on behalf of “Colored People.” Nothing says “refudiation” like proving the NAACP right, I suppose.

But kidding aside, since we’re on the subject of “refudiation,” my good friend Oliver Willis posted this rather disturbing bit over at his blog:


A 45-year-old parolee, described by his mother as angry at left-wing politicians, opened fire on California Highway Patrol officers on an Oakland freeway early Sunday and was hit by return fire while wearing body armor, authorities said.

Byron Williams of Groveland (Tuolumne County) was taken to the emergency room at Highland Hospital, where he was in stable condition. Police did not describe his injuries. Two officers suffered minor cuts from flying glass.

Here’s hoping that Ms. Palin finds it in her heart to “refudiate” crazy right wingers who shoot at cops.

  1. A Glenn Beck (and other hatemonger) listening right winger, who'd been convinced that President Obama was going to outlaw personal ownership of guns and ammunition, amongst other lies, ambushed and killed three police officers in Pittsburgh in the spring of '09. There was not a single word of contrition from anyone on the right about that.
