Breaking political news before the news

Hot Reaction to Family Research Center Crime

August 15th, 2012

There was no time for reflection after today’s shooting of a security officer outside of the Family Research Council in Washington D.C. The shooting suspect is in custody, wrestled to the ground by the injured officer and others. The Family Research Council is a large advocacy organization that promotes the “traditional family unit” and a Judeo-Christian value system. Both sides are already trying to spin what happened into political leverage.

Based on twitter activity, some on the left seemingly are saying ‘it’s about time’ this group gets some payback. Others are expressing sympathy but reiterating they feel the FRC is a hate group. The right are seeing this a way to turn the “violence” rhetoric away from the tea party types and onto the radical left. Some even are saying the Obama administration appears not to care about an act of violence like this unless it is in their interest. The media is also taking a beating on social media as conservative supporters lambast CNN and MSNBC for their coverage. They are also going after ABC News who reported that the FRC is a James Dobson group. It was founded by James Dobson, but he hasn’t been with the group for a long time. What do you think?
