Left-wing terrorist attempts to assassinate guard at conservative organization

RJ~PWCM~JLA 2012/08/15 16:56:27

A security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C., was shot in the arm by a gunman who sources said expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions.


The guard, who was not identified, was conscious after the shooting and was being treated. The shooting occurred in the Chinatown neighborhood Wednesday morning. The gunman was apprehended and was being questioned by the FBI, sources said. Sources said he is in his twenties and may have been posing as an intern.


The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard," a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot.

Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism.


“The police are investigating this incident," Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said. "Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.”


The FRC is a conservative nonprofit that seeks to advance "faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion," according to its website. The group weighs in on policy, and has often sent representatives to Congress to weigh in on the social effects of policy matters.

    Marxist Liberals are violent. However, they always accuse the Tea Party of doing what they do.

    Conservatives typically see leftists,liberals,and progressives as ignorant,misinformed or simply wrong. THEY,on the other hand view the right as evil,and something to be destroyed. You are proof of that,and I truly feel sorry for you in your sickness.

    Now where in this article does it say "Left wing terrorist"? I don't see it. Is this another sly attempt to get at liberials or just an out and out lie? Probably the latter.. Good luck with that..

    *** sits back; and waits for all the liberals to tell the conservatives, to not jump to conclusions; even though, they seem to do it all the time….. i.e. anyone remember the “tea party” guy who shot up the theater?***

    On a side note, how could this happen? Guns are illegal in DC, aren't they?

    Can't wait for the LSM to start claiming a conservative radical attacked the Conservative Group.
