I just wanted to let my followers know that I have a new website, Progressive Insanity and I hope you’ll visit me there. Still working out the kinks (can’t figure out why http://www.progressiveinsanity.com won’t go the same dang place!) but at least the blog is up. See ya soon!
–Mark Steyn said that the definition of a nano-second “is the time between a mass shooting and some guy from the left blaming it on talk radio, or Sarah Palin, or Fox News.”
Why is it that every time a lunatic goes on a massacre, the left immediately start with the ‘it must be a right-wing lunatic’ bit? We heard it with:
Gabby Giffords shooting – It must have been Sarah Palin’s ‘target-like’ icons on her web page that caused this. Keith Olbermann thought that maybe O’Reilly and other conservatives should be held partly responsible. Paul Krugman decided it was a Tea Partier. Seriously?? Actually, the maniac behind that was Jared Loughner, who left behind a manifesto endorsing Hillary Clinton for President, defends Barack Obama, agrees with gun control, and left a litany of praise for several leftist political propagandists. Sure doesn’t sound like a right-winger to me! He bought his gun and ammunition legally. Though he seemed to certainly have mental health issues, he had never been declared mentally unfit by a court so it’s doubtful that an extended background check would have even slowed him down.
Treyvon Martin’s shooting – Immediately it was blamed on a racist right-winger, before any facts at all were known. AFL-CIO Executive Vice President Arlene Holt Baker said it is “conservative, right-wing policies that are to blame” for Trayvon Martin’s death. She was referring to the “Stand Your Ground” bill, which is not a conservative policy. The bill was passed in Florida with 100% unanimous senate approval. Every Democrat, save one who abstained from the vote, voted for the bill. Then, NBC gets caught red-handed doctoring the 911 tape to fit their leftist agenda. Not only is Trayvon Martin’s shooter not a racist, he was a registered Democrat! Whether or not Mr. Zimmerman shot in self defense is for the jury to decide, but whatever they decide, it had nothing whatsoever to do with a right-winger, a racist, or the Stand Your Ground bill. Zimmerman bought his gun and ammunition legally, and had a conceal & carry permit. An extended background check would have done nothing whatsoever to stop this tragedy.
Colorado Movie Theater shooting – Brian Ross, of ABC, explained that the alleged shooter, James Holmes, was a Tea Partier. Wrong! James Holmes described himself as having “middle of the road” political leanings. That’s a long way from a conservative. Peter Dreier of www.truth-out.org says that it’s Wayne LaPierre’s fault because LaPierre, like many Americans, advocates gun ownership, the “Stand Your Ground” law, and concealed carry. Mr. LaPierre is the Executive Vice President of the NRA (National Rifle Association). When did the media start blaming anyone other than the actual perpetrator of a crime? It’s seriously getting ridiculous. To be fair, an extended background check may have prevented this tragedy.
Boston Marathon Explosion – Before the blood of the victims had even begun to dry, Chris Matthews started blathering about how “ … domestic terrorist people tend to be on the far right …”. Which terrorist(s) is he referring to, exactly? As if that weren’t bad enough, enter David Sirota, writing for Salon.com, who wrote a piece stating, in part, that white men are usually behind “those shootings” actually titled his article “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American”. As we know now, the bombers are not right-wing, they are Chechnyan (Chechen?), Muslim terrorists. Wow, that’s a huge surprise. And, I heard this week that they didn’t have the permits for the guns they used, either! Can you imagine that? Muslim terrorists didn’t care about the gun laws? That background check law would’ve surely stopped these guys, right?
Joseph Stack flew his plane into the IRS building in Austin, Texas – He was angry at the IRS and was as far away from right-wing as I think you could get. That didn’t stop Chris Rovzar of New York Magazine from proclaiming
He was mad at the IRS, and left what CNN reports was a suicide note on a local website, detailing his trials with the agency. In fact, a lot of his rhetoric could have been taken directly from a handwritten sign at a tea party rally.
He left behind a manifesto that blamed capitalism, President Bush, the healthcare system, government and the IRS. Naturally, the leftist media decides that since he railed against the government, healthcare and the IRS, he MUST be a right-winger/tea partier. Wrong again!
Amy Bishop opened fire on her colleagues in Alabama – It didn’t take long before we heard the same ole, same ole from the left. Reuters Foundation Fellow Jonathan Curiel wondered aloud “Does racism explain the tenure shooting and the Tea Party movement? Amy Bishop was a liberal to the core. She was described as being a “far left political extremist obsessed with President Obama”.
James Lee took hostages at the Discovery Communications Headquarters – Thinkprogress, a typical leftist website, wrote that Lee’s manifesto bore a “troubling resemblance” to “anti-immigrant” groups. If you actually took the time to read the manifesto, you couldn’t help but come to the conclusion that he was a crazy ass eco-terrorist who thought humans needed to die to save the planet. Yep, sounds like a Tea Partier to me!
Faisal Shahza attempted to bomb Times Square – New York City’s Mayor Bloomberg said the perpetrator was probably ”a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health-care bill or something.” Robert Dryfuss of The Nation said the bomber was “either a lone nut job or a member of some squirrely branch of the Tea Party, anti-government far right. Which actually exists in Connecticut, where, it seems, the car’s license plates were stolen.” Not to be outdone, the Daily KOS (big surprise!) joined in the bash-fest with
The reality is that in this country there seem to be essentially two scenarios that can unfold at this point when we hear about terrorism, two kinds of people/groups that typically end up being involved. And that says quite a lot in and of itself. If I were the Tea Partiers, I wouldn’t be too quick to dwell on the question of why Americans might think they’re involved in terrorism. I don’t think that’s a discussion that’s going to go well for them.
I bet you can figure out where this is going, can’t you? Maybe the perp’s name gave it away? Yep, he’s a Muslim terrorist.
It seems every time there’s a tragedy with a perp behind it, the left starts with their blame the right game. I know there have been right-wing nutjobs who took lives due to their ideology, but there haven’t been many. There most certainly havn’t been nearly as many as the left would like you to believe.
Wake up America! You’re being lied to over and over again by the media, Hollywood, even the pResident! Hmm, maybe I should tackle Oblamers list of lies next. What do you think?
I came across this quote a year or so ago but have no clue who wrote it, so if you do, please leave me a comment so that I can attribute it to him/her.
“Arguing with liberals is like playing chess with a pigeon. It doesn’t matter how good you are at chess, the pigeon is just going to knock over all the pieces, crap on the board, and strut around the table looking victorious.”
I check quite a few conservative websites/news sites/blogs, etc. daily and I force myself to check a few left leaning sites a few times a week. I seriously do not understand the leftist mindset.
I read about a study that came out a few days ago proving that there is an actual brain composition difference between the conservative and the liberal brains. Considering that I am dumbfounded by how liberals can actually think the way that they do, I am inclined to believe it.
I was watching a YouTube video earlier today in which Piers Morgan argued with Dana Loesch about gun control. You can find the YouTube video here.
He asked her “ … is there any reason why a civilian would need a magazine clip, uh, magazine drums as it is now, of a 10 round limit or more?” Her reply was that she had just read a story today in which a man was attacked by a “gang of men” with bats and tire irons. His response? “What’s the point of that, of that anecdote?” Uhm …Piers, do you not recall the question you JUST asked her, to which she is now replying?? Hello?? Then he goes on to say “But Dana, Dana, why do you tell that story?”
Then he says that he’s watched the video of the attack, that the victim was attacked with “a bar of some sort” (remember, it’s a tire iron!!), and says “ … but he’s alive, he didn’t get killed.” He asks her if her “suggestion” is that “someone should’ve pulled a gun out and shot somebody.” Well, apparently he’d rather be beaten with bats and tire irons, but I will tell you right now, if I’m attacked in the middle of the street by a gang of men wielding weapons of any type, I’m not going to think twice – damn straight I’d shoot!
And about gun control, would you give me a break with your red herrings! Shut up about tanks, that is not even part of the discussion you nitwit! The simple FACT is that tightened gun control has not lessened crime in any state that has tightened them. Another simple FACT is that a criminal, or a mentally deranged person, is not going to give a damn about the law. The only people who are going to care are your law-abiding citizens, who will then be without protection (oh, wait, we could use our whistle!!) when the lawless attack us.
I seriously don’t understand how the left brain works. I go to the left blog comments and it’s full of hate and vitriolic diatribe aimed at the hateful, government hating, intolerable, racist right. I read the right blog comments and, though there are always ass wipes in every group, the vitriol is aimed more at why and how than who.
Most of the hate-filled, mean, filthy stuff said on conservative forums is directed toward leftist “trolls”. Maybe that’s rose-colored glasses, but I’m tellin’ ya, I seriously see a huge difference in the way that people are talked about between the left and the right.
Most of the hate-filled, mean, filthy stuff said on progressive/liberal forums is directed at everyone who doesn’t see things their way. Who’s the intolerable one again?
Stop with the red herrings and the name calling already. Act like civilized, mature adults. I can absolutely guarantee that you aren’t going to get me to even listen to your point of view if you can’t stick to the facts. Start with the leftist ploys of distract and attack and the “argument” is over. You lose.
