Obama: ‘If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring a Gun’ (June 14, 2008)
But the prize for insensitive slander, however, goes to Michael Daly of the New York Daily News. Under the headline “Rep. Gabriel Giffords’ blood is on Palin’s hands after putting cross hair over her district,” Daly wrote that Palin, by designating 20 congressmen as targets in 2010 for voting for ObamaCare, “added to a climate of violence.”
When Palin’s map became an issue, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, leader of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), rushed on MSNBC to denounce it, telling Chris Matthews:
I really think that that is crossing a line…In this particular environment I think it’s really dangerous to try and make your point in that particular way because there are people who are taking that kind of thing seriously.
Really, Chris? So what do you think about this map?
Then there’s this: In a video message posted Monday on the Web site of the rabidly gay-hating cult Westboro Baptist Church, cult leader Fred Phelps announced that he and his followers will picket the upcoming funerals of the six victims who lost their lives in Saturday’s shooting rampage in Tucson — even targeting that of nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green. “That child was not innocent,” the cult said in a press release. “That child is better off dead, so the cup of her iniquity will not overflow!”
There are no words to express how disgusting this group of real life nutjobs are. I’m hoping they aren’t coming and are just stirring up the pot.
Their disrespect for the dead is beyond the pale.
There is already a movement by Liberals and Conservatives here that are going to band together against these disgusting people. Good for them. I wish I could be their to shield the families but I have to work.
Pima County Loon Sherriff (who is a leftist Democrat and pro-illegal):
“The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information,” [Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences.”
Neither is your Sheriff, but I doubt you are intelligent enough to understand it.
But he tows the party line very well as always.
When liberals say we must civilize our discourse and watch what we say, they mean conservatives should shut up. We need not apologize for the Constitution or our free speech rights. Saying the Tea Party made him do it is not a rational explanation.
When Maj. Nidal Hassan shot up Fort Hood in 2009, everyone said don’t jump to conclusions and blame all Muslims. Yet they blame all conservatives for this shooting even though the alleged shooter is from their side of the aisle.
By all accounts so far he was a mentally unstable, pot smoking, leftist who worshiped skulls and whose favorite books were Mein Kampf and The Communist Manifesto. Not exactly Palin or Limbaugh material.
There were no liberal charges of inciting violence or creating a climate of hate in 2004 over Gabriel Range’s film “Death of a President” depicting the assassination of George W. Bush. In fact, it won an award at the Toronto Film Festival. Dissent is not hate, and demonizing your opponents is not democracy.
With all the Tea Party rallies and town hall meetings in 2009, there were no recorded acts of violence perpetrated by Tea Party members. It is they who are the targets of hate, venom and character assassination. Beck put half a million people on the Mall in Washington with not so much as a candy wrapper thrown in anger. (IBD)
But that doesn’t matter. Scoring cheap political “victories” with your base of nutjobs is all that really matters.
Even Hillary in Dubai talking to Muslim students, “We have extremists in our country,” Clinton said. “A wonderful and incredibly brave young woman Congress member was just shot by extremists in our country. We have the same kinds of problems.”
That’s you right-wingers and Tea-Partiers you’re moral equivalent to Middle Eastern Radical Muslim terrorists!
Not us Liberals though, we are as pure as the driven snow!
The political left is always prowling for ways to curb freedom and exert more government control over society. With six killed and 20 shot at a Tucson grocery store on Saturday, including the intended target, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, the left now has a tragic event to help push its agenda.
“Sensitivity” and “Compassion” go right out the window when it’s time to score cheap, childish, soul-satisfying partisan political points and push the Agenda forward.
After all, “targeting” a politician, say who is for ObamaCare, will be outlawed as hate speech. Or maybe Global Warming, or Cap-and-Trade.
The right to disagree with your government will disappear in puff of political where-there’s-smoke-theirs-an-opportunity!
Who cares if it’s true or not, they surely don’t. Who cares if it’s unconstitutional. They surely don’t.
It just feels good to blame Palin, Bush, Limbaugh,Beck and every conservative who has ever gotten your Liberal dander up.
It has to be their fault, everything else in life is why not this.
And it feels so good to HATE THEM!! 🙂
