Just When You Think They Can't Go Any Lower

By now, most of you have heard about Bill Sparkman, the census worker who was killed and hanged from a tree in Kentucky with the word "FED" scrawled on his chest. Right wingers, apparently fearing that the crime will be traced to hatemongers stirring up fear of the government, particularly the census, are struggling frantically to pre-emptively blame the grisly killing on someone or something else. So you have this guy, saying it must have been illegal Mexicans, because sometimes gangs grow weed in National Parks, and Mexican gangs grow weed, so there you have it.

But for sheer vileness, it's hard to beat Dan Riehl,* who theorizes that the murder victim may have been a child predator. His evidence? "No teaching degree, no full-time means of employment and no wife or kids so far as I am aware. But he certainly did gravitate towards children."

And we know this because....Sparkman was a Boy Scout leader and a substitute teacher.

Turns out, however, that Sparkman DID have a teaching degree, and a son, who we was raising as a single parent. But in the perverted minds of someone like Riehl, that's probably just more evidence he was a nasty child molester who deserved to be killed and hung from a tree.

The thing is, it's all so unnecessary. It would have been easy for a sane person to simply go, "wait a minute, we don't really know that much about the crime yet, including whether or not it was actually a homicide. Not to mention the fact that anti-federal government sentiment in that area far predates Glenn Beck, teabaggers, or Michelle Bachmann. In fact, a state trooper who worked in the schools with Sparkman warned him:
"when you go into those counties, be careful because people are going to perceive you different than they do elsewhere.'"

But nooooooooo...these sick fucks think everything is the fault of the Meskins or the Gays, and they're willing to smear a murder victim to make that "point."

Don't ever forget, though: it's the liberals who are filled with hate.

*(I did not, as is my normal practice, link directly to Riehl's blog. I'm not giving that asshole another web-hit if I can help it).

The object is to create heat, not light; mud, not clarity.

What small cramped souls.

This topic was raised in a Washington Post political chat today. The reporter disgraced himself by lumping the child molester claim in with the options law enforcement is considering, even though there's not a shred of evidence to support it. More of the Post's "fair and balanced" coverage, which has devolved into allowing both sides equal time to say what they want, providing little context as to which way the actual evidence trends.
