I’ve heard all kinds of crap about right wing violence over health care. I haven’t SEEN any violence; I haven’t seen or heard a shred of evidence caught on tape; but I’ve certainly heard bogus charges.
House Democrat Black Caucus members deliberately went through the crowd of Tea Party protesters hoping to create an incident - and video recorded their passage just in case their deliberate provocation incited something. They certainly didn’t have to walk through that crowd. You know who else did that? Nazis, hoping to create an incident when they went through Skokie, Illinois, home of many Jewish death camp survivors. Which is to say, the Black Caucus literally used a vile Nazi tactic.
There’s no evidence of it, no tape, no video, no cell phone footage, but when the Tea Party people didn’t give them what they wanted, Black Caucus members invented it for them: they screamed that someone in a crowd of tens of thousands of people used the N-word.
Rep. John Lewis is one of the main figures saying he heard the N-word. Should anybody believe him? He’s a documented race-baiter. He accused John McCain of being tantamount to segregationist Alabama Governor George Wallace. If John Lewis wants to encounter a racist, he need only look in the mirror.
One thing: Wallace was a racist, all right. He was also a DEMOCRAT. It would have been nice if Lewis had actually been able to find a right wing racist if he wanted to demonize the right wing as racist.
The left has tried to falsely demonize the right as racist before. At a Sarah Palin rally during the 2008 presidential campaign, a reporter claimed he heard someone shout “Kill him!” regarding Barack Obama. The Secret Service – which takes such threats seriously – thoroughly investigated the case and specifically concluded that no such threat had been made.
Glenn Beck had the following to say about where the REAL violence has come from from the very outset:
The media, they’ll spin it. CNN was doing more today on the violence of the right. Why would they do that? A, to set you up; B, to stop you from talking about health care and what are you going to do to stop it. They are setting the trap to make anybody who is against this bill an enemy of the State, a traitor, a terrorist, a violent killer.
Let me ask you this: The tea parties have been peaceful and, yet, they’re dangerous killers. Peaceful but, yet, dangerous. Let’s look at the bricks through the window. When there’s been actual violence, the democratic headquarters, this is the first brick that went through the window. In Denver, there was a brick that went through the window. Who did it? It was a lefty, democratic operative that threw a brick through the democratic window. It was a lefty that did it! Where was the press on the liberal who bit off a man’s finger in a health care argument? Bit his finger off. That wasn’t somebody on the right. That was somebody on the left. How about the media on all of the damage done by the G 20 protesters? That wasn’t a protest from the right. That was a protest from the left. How about the stories of the radio tower that was torn down, blown up, in Seattle? That was done by the left. How about the Hummers, because they get bad gas mileage? That’s from the left. How about Amy Bishop, who shot coworkers? She was from the left, an Obama fan. How about the SEIU thugs that beat down opponents at health care rallies? Intimidation? You want intimidation? How about that? How about the SEIU members that the media decided not to cover and you have it on tape as they are beating down a black man, calling him the N word?! How about Ann Coulter?
Note: I supplied the links.
There’s more violence by the left. Here’s footage of a Tea Party bus getting egged by Harry Reid supporters. Andrew Breitbart got out to question the lefties. One starts saying “Get him out of here, or I’m going to go to jail” (for the violent act he is going to commit on him):
Now we have a story about Norman Leboon, Sr., an Obama financial donor, being arrested for making death threats against Rep. Eric Cantor. Should I mention that Cantor is Jewish?
Here’s video of Karl Rove shouted down and forced to leave a book signing event. Hundreds of Rove fans came to have him sign their books and hear him speak; but a tiny group of protestors shouted him down and forced him to leave:
You could call this Stalinist, or Nazi, or fascist; they’d all be correct. It is the LEFT that despises free speech, and it is the LEFT which routinely shouts down speech with which they disagree in clear demonstrations of hate and wild disregard for our democracy.
The mainstream national news media has been a collective of Joseph Goebbels wannabes, as is their usual custom. They fell all over themselves to point out that conservatives had called Bart Stupak with hateful messages after he announced he was going to vote for ObamaCare. What they DIDN’T bother to report was that Bart Stupak got hateful messages from liberals during the period when he said he would vote AGAINST ObamaCare.
The media intentionally provides the false narrative that violence is only coming from the right; if anything, it’s only coming from the left. We’re not saying don’t cover the anger: what we’re saying is stop being partisan about it. Cover BOTH sides. Put the story into context. Stop the propaganda. Stop covering only one side of the anger through a narrow, partisan viewpoint intentionally manipulated to demonize the right. If you’re going to cover Bart Stupak receiving hateful phone calls after saying he’d vote yes for ObamaCare, cover Bart Stupak receiving hateful phone calls throughout the period he said he’d vote NO for ObamaCare.
The anger, rage, and even acts of violence isn’t something that just happened yesterday. It’s been going on for months. And the documented incidents are coming from the left.
If you want to see real hatred, and real acts of violence, look at the left, because that’s where it is.
If you want to see the worst kind of demonization and demagoguery, also look to the left.
