Is the GOP or the Tea Party responsible for the shootings in Arizona? No, they aren't.
Is FOX News, and all of their venom that is spewed on the airwaves responsible? Nope, they aren't either.
Is a mentally ill man who likely suffers from paranoid fantasies and was just looking for a target responsible for the shootings? Yes, he is.
Despite the fact that no political or media outlet is directly or indirectly responsible for this tragedy, should we allow America to continue on it's vitriolic and destructive path? I'm going to go with no on this one.
Should we instead take this moment to rethink the current public discourse before a politician or media outlet can be directly or indirectly blamed for violence? I'm gonna say yes.
Even if it means not taking easy potshots at FOX News? Damn it. Still yes.
I hope everyone else agrees. I hate taking the high road alone.
