Tucson Tea Party Trent Humphries Leader Blames Gabrielle Giffords for Getting Shot

Tucson Tea Party co-founder Trent Humphries has disgustingly blamed US Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords for her own shooting.

“It’s political gamesmanship,” he explained to Britain’s Guardian. “The real case is that she [Giffords] had no security whatsoever at this event. So if she lived under a constant fear of being targeted, if she lived under this constant fear of this rhetoric and hatred that was seething, why would she attend an event in full view of the public with no security whatsoever?”

That’s not all. In addition to the six people murdered by gunman Jared Loughner last Saturday, including a nine-year-old girl and a federal judge, Humphries says there is another victim of the massacre: the Tea Party movement, and Humphries himself. He says the tragic killings are “evolving into a conspiracy” to destroy the Tea Party and silence criticism of the government.

Unfortunately, enemies of the Tea Party have been using the same militant, threatening rhetoric against Humphries as his organization is notorious for.

“Too bad it wasn’t your family that was killed,” one said. “We hate you and we’re going to stand against you and we’re going to use our First and Second Amendment rights to stop you,” vowed another.

The local sheriff has warned Humphries to avoid public places; he won’t be attending tonight’s memorial service for the victims of Saturday’s slaughter.

      … and conservatives claim “individual responsibility” as one of their paramount principles?
