Even the Leftist Huffington ComPost wrote that the gunman made negative comments about the group before shooting.
Anne Sorock, who writes at William Jacobson's Legal Insurrection, has confirmed that the shooter was volunteering at a DC area LGBT group.
It has just been confirmed that Family Research Council shooting suspect Floyd Corkins II had been volunteering at the DC Center for the LGBT Community for the past six months.
From the AP:
David Mariner is executive director of The DC Center for the LGBT Community. He says Corkins had been volunteering at the center for about the past 6 months. Mariner describes Corkins as “kind, gentle and unassuming.”
Corkins, in his late 20s, is the suspect in the shooting that occurred in the lobby of the Family Research Council headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C., Wednesday morning. According to law enforcement officials, Corkins made negative comments about the FRC prior to shooting security guard Leo Johnson in the arm. Corkins also reportedly had a Chick-fil-A bag with him at the time.
As of 6pm Wednesday evening, the White House has not released a statement regarding the shooting
So why hasn't President Obama, who has been so quick to attack alleged political incivility in the instance of the Tucson AZ shooting in January 2011 and the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra the Fluke controversy, taken the time to go after these uncivil leftists such as Corkins and the Occupy bowel movement?
Sorock noted earlier at Legal Insurrection that the FRC has been attacked as a hate group by the ambulance chasers at the Southern Poverty Law Center, and also been attacked by the pro-gay Human Rights Watch. No comment has come from any of those groups yet.
Richard Milhous Obama, your silence is deafening.
