Unfortunately, Kyle's murder has brought out the worst in many of the usual suspects, those who have nothing better to do but spew hate for those who defend their free speech right to be fools, as well as the gun grabbing crowd.
Former Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul scraped the bottom of the barrel, sending out a tweet that read, "
Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make senseJonn at This Ain't Hell wrote:
Yeah, that’s the guy I was supposed to vote for in the last election because he was the only veteran in the race. See, that the danger of thinking that an OB/GYN in the Air Force is actually a veteran worthy of my vote just because he wore a uniform.
First of all, people who suffer from PTS (no D, please) don’t normally become violent. that’s the Rambo myth – y’all are confusing it with Hollywood’s diagnosis. you’d think a real doctor who had been in the military would know that, wouldn’t you? Secondly, blaming Chris Kyle for his own death is the height of ignorance. Obviously he’d done this before without it ending like this. Range time is what keeps me sane, and I’m sure a poll of this group here at TAH would get some light applause for the idea.So maybe RuPaul should talk to some vets before spewing his ignorance about going to a shooting range. Oh, and what does a doctor who looks at vaginas know about PTS anyway?
Aaron Worthing at Allergic to Bull was one of those on Twitter who heaped a good dose of criticism to RuPaul when he was attacked and RuPaul defended by Shirley Phelps-Roper, one of the Westboro morons who protest at military funerals.
To which Aaron responded with:
Well, the Westboro cult are about as Christian as I am a Buhhdist (which means, they're not). But leave it to RuPaul, mr Blame-America-First to have such an insane group as Westboro defending him.
