The Kentucky state police announced that the death of Bill Sparkman was an elaborate suicide made to look like a murder so that Sparkman’s son could collect on his insurance policy. Robert Stacy McCain has all the details and updates.
I’ll let others delve into all the sordid facts. What I want are some apologies from all the left-wing blog ghouls who danced on Bill Sparkman’s grave hoping to score points by blaming conservatives for the death, as detailed in my post Ghouls Preparing To Dance on Sparkman’s Grave.
The theory went that right-wing concerns over government power incited anti-government violence. Here are the bloggers specifically quoted in my prior post pushing this agenda:
- Think Progress,
- Steve Benen,
- Andrew Sullivan,
- Crooks and Liars,
- Richard Benjamin,
- Mark Kleiman and
- No More Mister Nice Blog, among many.
I’ll be following these blogs to see who owns up to their smears. And I’ll let you know.
