Update on the Politician Who Facebooked the Obama Threat Saying Assassinate That F****ing N****r and his Monkey Children
The leftosphere had a field day saying the guy was “a Tea Party Darling”? At the time I asked, where? I never heard of the guy before.
Turns out, get this, he’s anti-Tea Party. He’s a libertarian atheist who had a site called SupportAtheism.com
The best coverage of this seems to come from a left-winger blog called Angry Black Lady Chronicles. Left-wing or no, the poster there did a good job tracking down all the particulars of the story and comes to the proper conclusion that this nutcase, Jules Manson, has no connection whatever with the Tea Party movement. As DeHavelle notes, Manson has statements showing him to be anti-Tea Party, even. Not only that but Manson was the editor of SupportAtheism.com. So, he’s not religious, either. This guy seems to be quite far from the Tea Party movement.
Sadly, what we see here are all sorts of bloggers and news sources leaping to a story, labeling a kook, but not taking the time to get down to the truth before hitting that post now button. We saw this when that criminal, mental case shot Gabrielle Giffords, as well. That shooter was labeled a Tea Partier even before anyone even knew his name. How one can claim they know a person’s entire history before they even know a name… well, that one was never explained to me.
