Gabby Giffords was an Obama preening Democrat who became a hero to all Democrats and people who hate the 2nd Amendment by surviving a bullet in the head from a would-be assassin several years ago.
You’ll recall that the Democratic Party went off on Sarah Palin because she had published a map of the U.S. with crosshairs on targeted districts that Republicans could win, and Giffords’ district happened to be one of them. Sarah was branded a “murderer” for the ad. Never mind that Democrats were doing the same thing.
Anyway, the shooting gave Democrats the opportunity to demand more “common sense gun control” and howl about “right-wing nutcases.”
Well, it didn’t turn out so well for them because the shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, turned out to be a registered Democrat college student who had been identified by college authorities as a dangerous nutcase and they didn’t follow up with authorities.
Loughner has been a target of Democrats and gun-grabbers since the shooting and he’s decided to fight back.
Loughner pleaded guilty and is serving seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years, for the Jan. 8, 2011 shooting that killed six people and wounded 13, including former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
The lawsuit names Giffords and the Bureau of Prisons and seeks $25 million for emotional and psychological distress. It was filed in federal court in Arizona on Friday, March 18.
Is the suit real?
There’s some suspicion that the suit is a hoax, but personally, I’d like to see it move forward if only to tie up the time and money of Democrats who would have to defend against it.
UPDATE: From Fox News:
Cosme Lopez, with the U.S. Attorney’s Office District of Arizona, said attorneys for convicted killer Jared Lee Loughner notified the court that Loughner didn’t file or authorize the lawsuit.
Tucson News Now reported that Dalton’s fake lawsuit and the Arizona suit both bare similar traits. They both have the same three stamps in the right corner, similar handwriting styles and are postmarked in Philadelphia.
The two-page complaint obtained by the news outlet said Loughner is innocent and was “hand-picked” to be an assassin.
“My incarceration is illegal. I am actually innocent. I was framed,” the complaint says.
It claims the government put a chip in his head to control his mind, and that Giffords was not actually shot. Instead, it claims she is part of a “global plot to take away our civil liberties” and it was all an act she learned by watching Ronald Reagan movies.
The complaint also refers to “the Illuminati,” which it claims Giffords is a member of, and says he is being subjected to “microwave testing” and waterboarding “on defendant’s direct orders.”
This idiot had a career in comedy writing, but threw it all away to become a Sociopath Democrat… A-hole. Douche.
