Eric Fuller, who was shot in the knee during Saturday’s massacre in Tucson, has been making the media rounds this week. And as the week went on, his blame has gone beyond accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner.
“Early Show” co-anchor Chris Wragge was among the first to talk with Fuller on Tuesday. Since, he’s been interviewed by “Inside Edition” and NBC caught up with him as he showed up at the home of Jared Loughner. “I thought I would try to come over here and try and forgive him,” the 63-year-old disabled veteran said, adding, “I know that sounds crazy.”
Well, today Fuller went on the progressive news/opinion show “Democracy Now!”
Fuller, who was a volunteer for Giffords’ campaign blamed the right.
“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Fuller told hosts Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez. “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled.”
TVNewser talked with a member of the media who is covering the scene in Tucson and who also talked with Fuller, who says, Fuller “is about as far left as you can get.”
