Sheriff Democrat Dupe-nik has been busy disgracing his badge, his county, his State, and the American people. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County, Arizona, has put himself front and center with his baseless accusations about people like Rush Limbaugh while making a stink about hate speech.
Naturally, long-time journalist hack, Tom Brokaw, was one of the first out the gate to applaud Dupe-nik and offer him encouragement. As Newsbusters reports:
…Brokaw thought officials have been “timid” in their criticism of violent political speech, in the wake of Saturday’s shooting. “The Pima County Sheriff is not,” he continued. “He is speaking out, and too few others have because they’re worried about retribution.”
Call me 'the Dupe' for short.
What is Dupe-nik speaking out against? Mostly Rush Limbaugh, and anyone who is critical of Dupe-nik’s fellow Democrat policies. For video and the story of the rest of the Democrat state-run media embarrassing themselves go here.
Sheriff Democrat Dupe-nik may well be shooting himself in the foot. Some are rightly wondering, ‘what did Dupnik know, and when did he know it?’
What sheriff records of young, demented, flag-burning, Leftist and pothead, Jared Loughner, might Dupnik be aware of. After all, Dupnik admitted that Loughner had made prior death threats against some other, unnamed person. James Taranto, of The Wall Street Journal has raised his eyebrow on Hannity.

“I’d like to make one additional point on Sheriff Dupnik. I think we’re missing the point when we’re talking about his political agenda. This man and this suspect has had previous contact with the sheriff’s office. It looks to me, we don’t have many details on this, but it looks as though he slipped between the cracks. I think what we really need to look into is what happened when he had previous contact with the sheriff’s office with their negligence here. And, I think the sheriff is trying to distract from that question.”
At a site called Cholla Jumps comes this accusation:
Jared Loughner has been making death threats by phone to many people in Pima County including staff of Pima Community College, radio personalities and local bloggers. When Pima County Sheriff’s Office was informed, his deputies assured the victims that he was being well managed by the mental health system. It was also suggested that further pressing of charges would be unnecessary and probably cause more problems than it solved as Jared Loughner has a family member that works for Pima County.
Blogger Doug Ross breaks the story down. After establishing the connections, he says, “The question arises, in part because of the sheriff’s odd behavior: did the fact that one or both parents worked in local government allow them to “pull strings” to protect a troubled child?”
He concludes with, “Perhaps some “professional journalists” could actually “investigate” this matter if they could take time away from inventing new lies about Sarah Palin.”
Sorry, Doug, but that would mean actually having to earn their bloated salaries.
Meanwhile, a friend of Loughner’s, Bryce Tierney, opened up and gave an interview about his pal, confirming again that Loughner was a very troubled fellow who was obsessed with Giffords since 2007 when he met the congresswoman at a rally.
Over at City Journal, the great Andrew Klavan writes about “The Hateful Left: Where incendiary political rhetoric truly resides in America”
But while little useful can be said about the murders themselves, the rush to narrative of our dishonest and increasingly desperate leftist media does have to be addressed. The Left—which has been unable to discover any common feature uniting acts of Islamist violence worldwide—nonetheless instantly noticed a bridge between the Tucson shooting and its own political opponents. The Chicago Sun-Times ran a slavering editorial blaming “the right.” MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and theWashington Post’s Eugene Robinson suggested that the killings were inspired by right-wing rhetoric. Politico’s Roger Simon did the same.
[...] But all that might be tolerable to leftists if they weren’t starting to lose control of the one weapon in which they have the most faith: the narrative. The narrative is what leftists believe in instead of the truth. If they can blame George W. Bush for the economic crisis, if they can make Sarah Palin out to be an idiot, if they can call the Tea Party racist until you think it must be true, they might yet retain power in spite of the international disgrace of their ideas. And though they still mostly dominate the narrative on the three broadcast networks, most cable stations, most newspapers, and much of Hollywood, nonetheless Fox News, talk radio, the Internet, and the Wall Street Journalhave begun to respond in ways they can’t ignore….

Yes, the hypocrisy of the Left never fails to stun. As always, among those who never fails to humiliate himself, either, is the slobbering, always brain-addled Chris Matthews.

After the Ft. Hood shooting, Chris Matthews went out of his way to find reasons other than radical Islam for the shooting. And he had a representative of CAIR on his show for the express purpose of keeping people from jumping to conclusions about the Muslims.
Today, in stark contrast, Mr. Matthews assigned motive and direct cause for the Tucson shooting (on the right).
To round off the coverage, Atlas Shrug’s Pamella Geller, published her own exposé reminder of the Left’s long, filthy, and sordid love affair with hate – The Face of Hate. She includes many photos and remarks that the state-run media either forgot or entirely ignored. Usually the latter.
It’s a good compliment to Michelle Malkin’s piece yesterday, The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010″.
The final word goes to Rush Limbaugh, who, along with Sarah Palin, has been most singled out by the Leftist state-run media for attack.
