Left Has No Shame
Disgusting Liberal Actions
I've avoided writing a hub about the Tucson tragedy in which U.S. Rep.Garbrielle Giffords was mortally wounded and left six other people, including a nine year old girl, dead from Jared Lee Loughner;s handgun. I've just been too angry (beside the obvious reasons due to the tragedy of so many people being shot and killed ) for two different reasons. One, the bodies were probably still warm when left-wing bloggers, MSNBC news analysts, certain Democrats tried to make political points by accusing the Tea Party, conservative talk show hosts, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and, of course, Sarah Palin of being responsible for the tragedy due to their "vitriol and rhetoric." In fact, Daily Kos especially went after Sarah Palin due to the bullseye targets she had over Democrats who voted for the Health Care Bill last year. Odd thing about it, Daily Kos had a member say "She is dead to me" in response to Rep. Giffords voting against Nancy Pelosi as the Minority Leader in the House. That remark was very quickly deleted (after the Tucson shooting) by those hypocrites.
The second thing that made me angry was the way in which the news media was trying to make political points for their task masters in the Democratic Party. There is supposed to be some vestiges of impartiality in the major news outlets such as ABC, NBC, FOX and CBS. All you heard about was this tragedy was due to the invective coming from the Tea Party types who dared to dissent from the carefree spending ways of the Democratic Party. Politicizing a tragedy in which six people are killed goes beyond the norm. This is far from being a political issue and the likes of Keith Olbermann of MSNBC should have respected that. I expected too much of even from the likes of him. He, of course, went after Sarah Palin over the bullseye targets. It is disgusting to me that we have people in this nation who are supposedly well educated, and yet, all they can think about is making a case against people exercising their First Amendment rights. I'm not sure how the left-wing media can ever recover from their actions immediately, and I do mean, IMMEDIATELY after this tragedy occurred. Any normal thinking human being should have first been appalled at what took place due to the actions of one sick individual named Jared Lee Loughner.
Is rhetoric too high in this country? Quite possibly, yes (although a new CBS poll disputes this). But, why wasn't this brought up before the Tucson shooting? People in the liberal media keep talking about right-wing rhetoric. How about the left-wing rhetoric? When asked in June of 2008 what he would do to counter Republican attacks, President Obama stated, "If they bring a Knife to the fight, we bring a gun." This coming (at the time) the Democratic Nominee for President. Speaking of which, remember how President Obama and the news media (which refused to print or say the name of the killer for the longest time) cautioned everyone should "Not jump to conclusions" after the Ft. Hood Massacre. Thirteen people were killed by Maj. Nidal Hasan in what I still believe qualifies as a terrorist attack. Where was the caution from the news media after the Tucson shooting? They threw caution to the wind gleefully as they went after Sarah Palin and the Tea Party. This is why I say the liberal news media will never recover from this. They have been exposed for exactly what they are now. This goes for certain Democratic Party members as well. Now, the sheriff in Tucson who is obligated to investigate this tragedy is agitating things even further by accusing Rush Limbaugh as being responsible for the Tucson shooting due to his "rhetoric." My question to Sheriff Clarence Dupnikis, "Sheriff, don't you have a job you need to be doing? Why are you in front of the TV cameras so much since the shooting ?" I wish someone would ask him that.
Now, we have Democratic Party members who are talking about curbs on free speech, specifically any speech which is in direct contrast to their agenda. The Fairness Doctrine (the most mislabeled act in history) is once again being raised by Democrats in an effort to shut down Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck. Democrats are warning Republicans not to bring up the heated debate over health care as we saw last year. I'm curious if this same warning applies to the likes of Democrats and the left-wing media who derided Tea Party people as being "bigots, nazis, teabaggers" and other names not worth mentioning. These people exercised their First Amendment rights. For that they were cussed, threatened, physically attacked and ridiculed by the left-wing thugs. Now, after the tragedy in Tucson, they are ready to attack the conservatives over their rhetoric ??? Hypocrisy by any other name is still hypocrisy. Until unbiased news media (which, I admit, doesn't exist right now on either the left or right) take to task the dominant media liberal bias, then there will always be vociferous rhetoric on both sides of the aisle. Liberals, you can blame conservatives all you want. But, you need to do as Pogo did and see the real enemy .
