This is what the www.democraticunderground.com and MSNBC had in mind when it comes to toning it down. No matter what proof comes of this shooting the left-wing wont give up this inflammatory rhetoric. It is obvious that the left-wing hate conservatives. Don't they even see that they are partaking in the rhetoric they say the right-wing is doing? Why are these liberals doing everything they can to inflame the left? Are they trying to push a copy cat killer? If they believe that it is rhetoric that killed all those people then why are they doing it? It just doesn't make any sense to me. If I only listened to the MSM I'd think this murderer Loughner was Innocent and it is the conservatives that need to pay for this crime. It seems as though the left-wing are working for the defence of this murderer. It is what it is. As long as the members of the Democratic Party and the President doesn't get into this witch hunt the left-wing and the MSM will give it up. If the President and the members of the Democratic Party follow MSNBC and the Democratic Undergrounds lead, instead of the way the Presidents speech lead us to believe. Then we know what we are dealing with. If they start with the inflammatory language they say is causing weak people to go crazy and kill we will know what their true intentions are. To inflame the weak,their words not conservatives. If they go that route we have every right to question their intentions of this country. And if the left rise up, or the right we will have every reason to blame them. But that's a lot of "if's".
As I write this, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) is in critical condition in a hospital in Arizona after being shot in the head by a deranged psychopath at a political gathering in Tucson.ReplyDelete
Six people were killed in the assault last Saturday, including a Federal judge and a 9-year-old girl. In a strange twist of fate, the child, Christina Green, was born on September 11, 2001. We extend our deepest sympathies to all of their families. Our prayers go out to them, as well as the 14 other people who were wounded in the assault, allegedly committed by a 22-year-old mentally ill person named Jared Lee Loughner.
The shooting was a tragedy. But what happened next was an outrage.
No sooner had the airwaves carried the news of the attack than the Left tried to blame the right for what happened. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, whose vicious tirades against conservatives know no bounds, ranted on national TV that “the climate of hate” created by Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and their ilk was responsible for the assassination attempt.
Within hours it was revealed that the gunman was a misfit and no friend of conservatives. He was an angry nihilist who said his favorite books included Karl Marx’s The Communist Manifest and Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
How about that — two of the top 10 books on my list of The Worst Books Ever Written were among his favorites. (If you missed that column, click here to see it.) Clearly Loughner is a creature of the Left, not of the Right. But that didn’t stop the hate-mongers in the media from piling on.
The New York Times set the tone for the rest of the mainstream media with an article, “Bloodshed Puts New Focus on Vitriol in Politics.” Most of The Times’ examples of vitriol, you will not be surprised to learn, came from the right. Major targets were Tea Party members, Sarah Palin and virtually anyone who opposed Obamacare.
The Times’ Pulitzer-winning columnist Paul Krugman, who leans so far to the Left he’s in danger of falling over, joined the chorus with a column blaming conservatives for fostering “a climate of hate.”
Politico, a popular website about all things Washington, said that “a veteran Democratic operative” immediately advised the White House to “deftly pin this on the tea partiers.” I would have suspected Rahm Emanuel (he of the “never let a crisis go to waste” fame) of being the source, but apparently he’s too busy running for mayor of Chicago.
In an effort to tar Republicans with Loughner’s murderous assault, someone even created a fake voter registration document for the guy, purporting to show that he is a registered Republican. It looked pretty authentic — obviously, whoever did it used a genuine card as his model — except for one thing: The Leftwing dope who did it misspelled Tucson!
All of this reminds me of another tragedy that rocked the nation — the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 22, 1963. If you were an adult back then you remember that the airwaves were full of allegations that the President’s murderer must have been some crazed Right-winger. After all, the killing took place in Texas, right? A state that’s full of dangerous Rightists.
It turned out, of course, that the President’s assassin was a dedicated Marxist named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former sharp-shooter had even spent time in Mother Russia before returning to the U.S. and crusading for Fidel Castro.
The shooting in Tucson has provided another opportunity for the liars on the Left to blame patriotic Americans for what happened. Frankly, we probably should be used to it by now. For all of my adult life, patriotic Americans have been attacked and ridiculed by those on the Left as religious extremists, intolerant bigots, dangerous racists and worse. While the truth is, it is almost always people on the Left who advocate violence or make excuses for it, and try to smear their political opponents with the brush they themselves wield.
My fellow Personal Liberty Digest columnist Ben Crystal hit the nail on the head when he wrote two days ago:ReplyDelete
“Nonetheless, while the Democrat Party urges its supplicant media to find a way to pin the murder of six people on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party and the GOP by proxy; the facts reveal a vastly different picture. It’s a picture of the ultimate expression of Leftist rage, fanned by monsters like Markos Moulitsas, raging idiots like Olbermann, violent union thugs from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), and possibly the anti-semitic roaring of characters like former President Jimmy Carter.”
Thanks, Ben, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
Ben’s column (which you really should read; go here to see it) also quoted these gems from the current occupant of the White House. How about these examples of fanning the flames of violence?
“If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard.”
Or this one:
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
Thanks, President Obama. You’re sure setting a wonderful example of calm, dispassionate, moderate leadership.
Over on Capitol Hill, things are almost as bad. Representative Jim Clyburn, the very liberal Democrat from South Carolina, said the real culprit was Sharron Angle, the feisty grandmother and outspoken Tea Party advocate who ran against Harry Reid in Nevada. Another Democrat congressman, Robert Brady from Pennsylvania, used the murders as an excuse to promote legislation that would make criticism of elected officials a Federal crime. Guess if Brady had his way, I’d not only get groped by Transportation Security Administration screeners every time I fly; I’d risk going to jail for some of my Straight Talk columns!
I just saw the results of a recent poll. It says that 57 percent of Americans do not believe that “overheated” or conservative rhetoric was responsible for Loughner’s murderous assault last week. That’s the good news.
Here’s the bad: 42 percent of respondents (most of them self-identified as Democrats) bought into this decades-long smear. It’s a sad commentary of how some people will believe anything — and say anything — to make their opponents look bad.
It’s not hate that motivates the Tea Partiers I’ve met. It’s love — love for this country and the principles upon which it was founded. Love of freedom. And yes, even love for our fellow man (and woman).
Like the incredibly brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence, many of us are willing to risk our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to protect and promote the blessings of liberty. So I guess we can stand a little more name-calling. In the life-and-death struggle for freedom, what are a few more scurrilous smears?
Until next time.
You need to slow down brother.
Some of the left is being irresponsible and still attributing the violent rhetoric as contributing to the shooting, or at least the general atmosphere of political partisanship these days.
Your conclusions are disjointed and you seem pretty agitated. Is everything okay?
I don't feel that they are trying to free him, anymore than Conservatives are trying to allow him to plead insanity by talking about his "potential" mental disorders. Notice the president didn't say that he was "crazy, deranged, menatlly unstable". He said "VIOLENT."
Tragedies often end up in people using them for their own ends, and i think both sides are doing a fair job of that. From Clyburn's stupid attempt to revive a lousy idea, to the joker who instead of posting more armed and constantly trained guards and police around Congress wants reps with limited training to carry guns on the house floor, there have been more and more stupid ideas than should follow up a tragedy of this sort.
Chris, Cenk has it EXACTLY right. His "rant" is perfectly on point.ReplyDelete
While we may never know if the violent rhetoric of the righties was directly responsible for Loughner going on a shooting rampage, we can say for certain, the right-rhetoric is not this country living up to it's best ideals and Christina Greene would not be proud of the statements by Rush Limbaubgh, Sharron Angle, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity and I could go on and one and on with the list of right-wing pundits, radio hosts and TV hosts that use the imagery of violence against their political opponents.
What Cenk said is NOT what the President was talking about. There is NO equivalency between what the right has been doing with their hate speech directed toward liberals and what Cenk said, absolutely no equivalency and you, Chris, need to stop making it sound as if there is.
Stand up like a man and take responsibility for your fellow conservatives creating an atmosphere of hate and violence. You'll feel better.
Bruce, FUCK YOU and your ilk! Go cry on your socialist blog.ReplyDelete
I find Joe thanks for asking. But yes Joe the way the left-wing has handled themselves is agitating. From what I see it is the doctors and the people that knew him that are calling him crazy and insane. That is as obvious as the nose on his face. Now criminaly insane is for the courts to decide. But if you can't see that he is crazy, then are you fine Joe? It kind of sounds like you are giving them a pass on what they are doing. That's cool as long as you do the same for the right-wing.ReplyDelete
Yeh Bruce and if candy and nuts were if's and but's then every day would be like Christmas. It's so cool how you can see into the mind of a killer. It sounds more like you and they are projecting. We conservatives are you liberals nuts and you can see why he did it. Wasn't it the Daily Kos that did a post on wanting this Blue Dog Democrat Giffords dead for being too conservative? Hum I wonder if you factored that one into your conspiracy theory? Bruce your first post on these murders said you wanted to bet that Loughner was a righty. You couldn't have been more wrong. Don't you agree? And what your saying now only looks like desperation to me. It's a shame how unhinge most of the liberals have become over this. They aren't even making sense and they are grasping for straws that aren't there. Maybe you should call up that Jesse whatevers show Conspiracy Theory and see if he could help you on this theory of yours. hahahahaha. Yeh yeh Bruce President Obama wasn't talking about the lefts rhetoric over this. It's the right-wing rhetoric about Loughner being a lefty that watch MSNBC all day. Bruce I have to say I love it when you post a comment. You always seem to make my point, wouldn't you say Joe? I bet Joe would like to see Bruce shut up because he doesn't help Joes points either.ReplyDelete
Bruce I have nothing but CONTEMPT for you and it has nothing to do with Ideaology. I am just glad that there are Liberals who have what YOU don't Common Sense and Decentsy! You are a Very SMALL minority and OUR Country is Better off for that!ReplyDelete
I just call them as I see them, Al. You and your ilk are why this country was in a steep and steady decline.ReplyDelete
You ought to be thanking god for liberals saving your butt and this country from going over the edge financially. I hope you say a prayer tonight for liberals saving this country's bacon.
Straight from a Tuscon shooting victim's mouth.ReplyDelete
A wounded survivor of the Tucson shooting that critically injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck, and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy.
“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW.

This guy is blowing SMOKE out his a$$. He keeps referring to guns, but what guns have been used by the “right” against the left politician in todays politically charged world.ReplyDelete
What attempt was made on a politicians life by some loon that was influenced by rights speech? Answer NONE!!!!!!
“Pick up your guns and do something about it. But they seemed surprise when people actually do”
UMMMMM no one ever said guns, especially the examples he gives in Rush, Angle or Michael.
But he puts that train of thought in to your head that they did say that.
This clown is a perceiving a notion that its happening. He sits there and exposes his delusional train of thought that the talk of the right is inflaming people to break the law.
But in our REAL world, we see None. Of. This.
Wonder what they are smoking on that side of the fence?
Bruce, where is his proof?ReplyDelete
It's an opinion based on Progressive talking points, but has no proof to back it up.
You and your brethren are losing this debate.
Hang it up, it's over.
Taking Tragedy of this Magnitude and bringing it into politcal arena and ignoring the FACTS was not greatest move MSM ever made. A Mad Man was The reason for this Terrible Event that you seem to be using for talking points to strenghthen your ideaology BUT all your doing is showing what a SMALL person YOU are and What a Danger the Far Left is to this Great Nation. You and your Ideaology are your worse enemy. When far left speaks VENOM does not impress Citizens! Citizens are alot smarter than YOU and That Bruce is Your Weakness.ReplyDelete
Al, lets not forget this.ReplyDelete
And I invite you ALL to read this.
Now, let it go! the progressive have lost this debate and we all need to move ON!
Mark made a great point. "Where is the proof of what you are saying Bruce?" It's all in your mind Bruce just like it was for Loughner. Do you have a "condition" that might be causing the irrationality? I would like for all of you to read Marks blog last two posts. Bruce you will see how debate with liberals should happen. I just can't imagine what's in that hea of yours Bruce. It sounds a lot like Loughner to me, but I'm not a doctor. Bruce do you have the Anarchists Cookbook or have you read it by chance? What about The Communist Manifesto?ReplyDelete
Don't forget less then 20% of Americans say they are liberal. That is just a fringe group. The problem is some,oops I mean many just look at the numbers, in that finge are dangerous. I think many on the left see themselves as Loughner and that is why they are reacting the way they are. Maybe we need to start doing the same. It is obvious that Joe is not part of that far left ideology. But even though Joe is a liberal he can see what the liberals are doing is wrong. And that is the differnce betweeen Joe and the other liberals. It seems as though there are two kinds of liberals out there.ReplyDelete
Chris 20% are Liberal but I bet its 6 to 8% that are BRUCE which to me is a different SUBJECT. My liberal Friends I have KNOWN for years. Its that 6/8% that want to Change OUR Nation that Concern Me.ReplyDelete
Regarding debating Bruce Mark is correct its like taking Exlax you KNOW what your going to get!
Bruce, Looks like your Eric Fuller guy, for which you post a comment on... Is in trouble with the law for threatening a Tea Party leader in AZ today.ReplyDelete
