Ironically the leftist outcry following the AZ shooting at Rep Giffords’ event over and squarely blaming “violent rhetoric” – exclusively from the crazy right if you believe the papers – backfires as Palin faces increased death threats from the tolerant left. Or did it? The left and their media lap dogs never leave any room to question how much they loathe Palin and her middle American values – God, family, country. By no means comprehensive, Michelle Malkin has detailed the illustrations portraying actual, direct violence against conservatives, including Gov. Palin by image or name. We have plenty of examples of actual violence perpetrated against those the left believes are a threat – Kenneth Gladney being just one example. Never heard of him? Probably because the media has tried desperately to spike the story.
The ABC article barley mentions the threats alluded to in the headline but instead spends most of the piece focused on Palin’s use of the phrase “blood libel”, willfully ignoring the entire other 8+ minutes. Palin brought the criticism on herself, ABC says.
Palin responded in detail today to the attacks leveled against her, but while her intentions may have been to shift the blame away from herself, she instead put her [sic] in the hot seat again.
The article never once attempts to examine the source, the validity, or bother to remark on how utterly more grotesque threats against Palin and her family are in light of the AZ murders. No discussion of anything else Palin had to say, or if perhaps she was elevating the dialog by appealing to the goodness in all of us, instead of harping on the negative. Beating a long dead horse, they wrap up with a quote from Rep Clyburn, reminding us the former governor of Alaska is stupid.
“Intellectually, she seems not to be able to understand what’s going on here,” Clyburn said in a radio interview.
This is the left’s idea of civil dialog. Conservatives should shut the hell up, because we’re not smart enough to engage with the intellectually superior left. If we won’t be silent, Clyburn will have his daughter on the FCC take care of us by regulating free speech out of existence.
