We've been hearing from the media for a year now that the Tea Party movement has been inciting violence.
Well, as Samuel L. Jackson's character said in the movie Pulp Fiction...allow me to retort.
A couple days ago, the FBI arrested Norman Leboon for threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor (R-NY). It appears Leboon was an Obama campaign donor. Leboon posted his threat against Cantor the day after a gun was fired outside Cantor's campaign office and a bullet went through one of the windows. The left-wing media universally poo-pooed the threat (do you think they would have done so had it happened to a Democrat ?). --- A couple days ago, a Code Pink mob shouted down Republican Karl Rove and ended up shutting down his book-signing event. Code Pink has disrupted many events, including the Republican Naitonal Convention. --- A few days ago, at a Tea Party event in Harry Reid's hometown of Searchlight, Nevada, pro-Reid people egged Tea Party buses and threatened conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart. --- About a week ago, conservative columnist Ann Coulter was forced to cancel her speech at the University of Ottawa after she was threatened by about 2,000 student protesters who were egged on by left-wing professors. You may remember a Coulter speech at Columbia University a few years ago, where audience members threw things at her and stormed the stage. Columbia was the same university where students sat quietly and respectfully to listen to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called for the destruction of Israel, among his many other insane beliefs. --- A left-wing nut who goes by the name of Jason Brown has issued numerous online death threats to Republican Sarah Palin. Brown is a BIG fan of MSNBC (hatemongers?) Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow. Here is an example of Brown's sweet, reasoned rhetoric - "Death 2 Palin family them retarded hillbillies take teabaggers w/ you hateful b*tch," and "@Palin360 you need 2 b assassinated soon we ll settle 4 one of the family if not u!." This nut wants to take out some Tea Party members too, as follows - "maybe it takes a murder or 2 2 get the point across take aim at radical TP members." Yet, I never hear ANYONE tell Keith Olbermann to stop inciting violence. Weird, huh ? --- Now get a load of some of the sweet, reasoned hate mail and death threats conservative blogger Michelle Malkin receives. She gets it by the boatload, and I have to apologize in advance for the following sick, ugly language. If you are easily offended, stop reading NOW. The editing of profanity is mine.
Here's one from Greg Diaz - "times up you ugly motherf*cker make sure sure your husband signs that policy b*tch."
Another from Jim Sneller - "What the f*ck are you?? A f*cking Jap or what?? If you f*cking don’t like the the USA, get the F*ck out!! You have nothing good to say about anybody !! You are a F*cking Idoit !!!! In your own Country you would be put to death!! You are one stupid f*cking C*nt!!!!!!!! You don’t like how I talk?? F*ck you !!!!! Get out the f*ck of my Country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You f*cking a$$hole !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
A third from Steven Frankel - "Go back to what ever Asian hell hole you came from, you’re not an American no American would cheer a defeat to America…get the f*ck out now you stupid c*nt before we drag you out by your Pubic hair..out damn twat!!!"
Nice, eh ? But, according to liberals, it's the Tea Party movement that is racist. Mmm-hmm. Whatever. --- Left-wing anarchist protesters and other left-wing protest groups broke store windows, threw bottles at the police, and set trash cans on fire at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh. --- Left-wing eco-terrorist groups like Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front have launched hundreds, if not thousands, of attacks, ranging from property destruction and vandalism to arson, firing rockets, and blowing people up. The Unabomber was one such eco-terrorist. --- During last summer's townhall meetings, where the media was obsessed with the alleged violent behavior of the anti-ObamaCare people, of the 10 documented violent acts, most of them minor, 7 were committed by Democrats. --- In february, the University of Alabama professor, left-winger Amy Bishop, went on a shooting spree because she was denied tenure. She shot five colleagues, killing three. She also killed her own brother in 1986 and is suspected of planting a mail bomb. She was, according to family members, "obsessed" with Obama. --- Last June, James Von Brunn shot two guards at the Holocaust Museum. Von Brunn left many writings on the internet. Among his beliefs - he hated Bush, McCain, neoconservatives (read: jews), was a 9/11 Truther, and voiced his approval for socialism. He was also a white supremacist. Yet, the left-wing media tried to portray him as a right-winger. Sure. Whatever. --- A 2008 report said there had been 50 attacks on army recruiting centers between 2003 and 2008. "The peace protesters are not peaceful," said Catherine Moy of Move America Forward. "They are violent." --- I could go on and on and on with more examples, but I'm hoping some will see my point here. The point is that the left has been engaging in intimidation tactics and disruptive violent protest for as long as I can remember. That's just what they do. I've seen it from the 60's forward. It has never stopped. What I can't remember is even one time where those protesters were painted as a systemic danger by the media. I also can't remember the media ever citing liberal speech as the reason for the violence. Yet, when conservatives and independents finally emerge to protest the unsustainable economic path our federal government has put us on, aka, the Tea Party movement, the media falls all over itself to paint the movement as a danger, and falls all over itself to say conservative speech is inciting violence.
It's an absolute disgrace, and perhaps the clearest example of media bias I have seen to date.
