It’s beyond the pale. We’ve had about four days now of stories coming from the left about right wing violence. Let me see now. How about some facts from the main stream media! They are either in the pocket of the left or they are just willing shills for the Democrats. O.k., they won’t give you facts only anecdotal evidence of how mean and violent we are? (Reminds me of the “anecdotal evidence” a.k.a. medical horror stories offered by the left during the ramp up to the health care vote.) Back to the facts. Here are the facts.
Fact #1-The only violent act that I have been able to document is a severed gas line at the home of a congressman’s brother. O.k. that guy should be arrested but he’s one guy!
Fact #2-No arrests have been made in any of the recent demonstrations by people againt the health care legislation.
Fact #3-Many congressmen, including Jesse Jackson Jr. videotaped their provocative walk to the capital with Nancy Pelosi out front leading them with her giant gavel. If anybody actually said something nasty it would be all over You-tube. And what was the purpose of walking through a group of protestors like that? Were they wanting something violent to happen that would serve their purpose? Hmmm.
Fact #4-Acts of real violence by the left:
- Eco-terrorism that has resulted in the loss of life and property
- Sarah Palin hung in effigy
- A movie produced about the “assassination” of President Bush
- The Black Panthers in Philadelphia trying to scare voters away
- The Bush/Cheney offices being vandalized during their campaign
- A bullet coming through the window of Eric Cantors office!
These were real acts. They happened on the left and you didn’t hear about them in the main stream media except for a little blurb here and there. Oh, and have you heard some of the recordings of messages left on Republican congressmen’s voice mail? No, you’ve just heard the “angry, violent, right wingers.”
Give me a break. If we can’t see that this is political exploitation of a bunch of average, every day citizens, that has only marched peacefully at rallies that you can take your kids to, than I don’t have much hope for us.
The truth of the matter is that they want to divide the right, by getting us to think, “Well, I sure don’t want to be a part of a violent fringe group!” Don’t take the bait. Let’s stick to the facts-something that the left is seemingly unable or unwilling to do.
