Trent Humphries, the leader of the Tucson TEA Party was threatened, reportedly by Eric Fuller, a wounded victim of the Tucson shootings. Fuller was arrested, but obviously his threat will not be taken seriously, as Fuller is the “victim,” – the victim who allegedly shouted “Humphries, you’re dead!” The ABC producer is unsure whether the episode will be aired tomorrow. My guess, it will never be seen unless a citizen taped the incident and releases it. See a video below.
Of all people, Christiane Amanpour was the host of this ABC get-together to discuss the Jared Loughner Republican shootings. Humphries, who has told police he has been receiving death threats for a week or so, was scheduled to speak, and did so. Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit had this conversation with Arizona State Representative, Terri Proud (R), who was at the even as a speaker: (snippet)
…Trent then told everyone that one of those killed during the shooting was his neighbor and that he was affected like everyone else by the tragedy…While Trent was speaking- And it was planned that he would speak- One member in the audience and reportedly one of the victims of the tragedy started screaming, “Trent Humphries you’re dead!” The police immediately escorted him out. On his way out he screamed, “You’re all whores.”
I was hoping the culprit was misidentified as Eric Fuller, but apparently, that is not the case. From Gateway Pundit:
Fuller made news yesterday when he told DemocracyNow that Sarah Palin, Sharron Angle, Glenn Beck, and John Boehner, were responsible for Jared Loughner’s actions. Shameful – tried to give him some benefit of the doubt yesterday. Today, no. If this report is true, Eric Fuller is shameful.
Note in the video below, Fuller has the story of the shooting partially wrong. He says a woman came over to Loughner and knocked the other magazine clip out of his hands, then men came along and took the shooter to the ground. I mention this only because he apparently isn’t reading the reports about heroine Patricia Maisch, who agrees with Fuller that Palin, Angle and Beck are at fault, but corrected the record about the day of the shooting. Maisch said she fell to the ground and Loughner ended up next to her after two men attacked him. Loughner pulled the magazine clip from his pocket. Maish reached for it, and as she said “I got it.”
Fuller also besmirches Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords’ political opponent in the last election, Jessie Kelly, and characterizes him as a “fake candidate,” and with an inappropriate fascination with guns (my words). Updates as available. Gateway Pundit asks that we keep Trent Humphries and his family in our prayers. Tucson Tea Party
