...this 'blame game' you continue to play, while you rail against any of the conservative talkers, finding constant blame for all the ills of the nation, while your 'side' spews all the hatred and ignorance any deranged unstable loser needs to justify whatever they might concoct as their 'going out' tribute.
Even on this BB there is no lack of rants by you finger-pointers at the right. But you are so blinded by your white guilt, you can't see the forrest for the trees. May you forever rot in your liberal/socialistic views that will be the death of a once great nation.
Glenn Reynolds, writing in the Wall Street Journal about the media/left’s rush to judgment of Sarah Palin and the tea party movement after the shootings in Tucson:
American journalists know how to be exquisitely sensitive when they want to be. As the Washington Examiner’s Byron York pointed out on Sunday, after Major Nidal Hasan shot up Fort Hood while shouting “Allahu Akhbar!” the press was full of cautions about not drawing premature conclusions about a connection to Islamist terrorism. “Where,” asked Mr. York, “was that caution after the shootings in Arizona?”
Set aside as inconvenient, apparently. There was no waiting for the facts on Saturday. Likewise, last May New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and CBS anchor Katie Couric speculated, without any evidence, that the Times Square bomber might be a tea partier upset with the ObamaCare bill.
So as the usual talking heads begin their “have you no decency?” routine aimed at talk radio and Republican politicians, perhaps we should turn the question around. Where is the decency in blood libel?
To paraphrase Justice Cardozo (“proof of negligence in the air, so to speak, will not do”), there is no such thing as responsibility in the air. Those who try to connect Sarah Palin and other political figures with whom they disagree to the shootings in Arizona use attacks on “rhetoric” and a “climate of hate” to obscure their own dishonesty in trying to imply responsibility where none exists. But the dishonesty remains.
To be clear, if you’re using this event to criticize the “rhetoric” of Mrs. Palin or others with whom you disagree, then you’re either: (a) asserting a connection between the “rhetoric” and the shooting, which based on evidence to date would be what we call a vicious lie; or (b) you’re not, in which case you’re just seizing on a tragedy to try to score unrelated political points, which is contemptible. Which is it?Democrats are desperate these days, no doubt. They took a drubbing in the midterm elections, President Obama remains an unpopular President, approval of and support for Obamacare has all the buoyancy of a lead balloon and Democrat party identification is at record lows.
But that doesn’t excuse the attempts by the left to leverage the Tucson shooting into Barack Obama’s “Oklahoma City moment.”
