Pilate therefore said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” – John 18:37-38
Well, one thing’s for sure: the truth sure isn’t what the Democrat rhetoric is spouting in the aftermath of the Tucson, AZ shooting that resulted in the wounding of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords among 19 shooting victims, with six killed.
I was amazed to see the thousands of hits an old article I wrote had recently generated. The reason? Democrats who had demonized Sarah Palin for her “targeting strategy” – which Democrats themselves routinely do – are now demonizing her again because one of the vulnerable districts Palin identified well over a year ago was Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ District 8.
As Democrats galore shrilly and viciously attack Sarah Palin for her “targeting,” what is conveniently ignored is that liberals not only targeted Gabrielle Giffords for defeat, but literally said “she’s dead.”
But “what is truth?” for these people? An inconvenient obstacle to be overcome, at most.
I was also amazed that the White House literally used Fox News to pass off clear and demonstrable lies associating a conservative organization with Jared Loughner.
Incredibly, the Pima Country sheriff – elected as a Democrat – without a single shred of supporting evidence, has repeatedly denounced conservatives as being somehow to blame for the shootings in blatantly partisan and irresponsible manner.
“What is truth?” Don’t ask Democrat Sheriff Clarence Dupnik.
And then there are the “Jared Loughner Facebook accounts” which “have all right wing books, websites, and people that he points to.” Just more false flag operations by Democrats to falsely associate conservatives with the psycho assassin.
This crap just never ends. It doesn’t matter to these lying propagandists one iota that if anything, Jared Loughner was a liberal, rather than any kind of conservative.
Here’s yet another depraved Democrat attempt to deceive:
Loughner “Republican” Voter Registration faked. Three points that demonstrate that.
Posted on 01/10/2011 6:14:13 AM PST by Lazamataz
This document is circulating, purportedly showing Jared Loughner is a registered Republican.
There are two reasons why the document is faked, and one official proclamation that undermines it:
- TUCSON is spelled TUSCON. People who live in a city do not mispell it’s name.
- If you go to the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission website and put in the address listed on this “registration” it comes up in Senator District 26. This fraud voter reg says District 27. (Hat tip, Brytani)
A blatantly partisan ideologue Newsweek “journalist” isn’t one bit disappointed in the sea of lies that characterize the Democrat response to this tragedy. Far from it:
“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” Rahm Emanuel famously said in 2008. The same goes for a shooting spree that gravely wounds a beloved congresswoman. Congress won’t enact gun control, as it did in the wake of the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, but perhaps something positive can come from this.
This little Joseph Goebbels minion basically wants Barack Obama to deliver a “State of the Reich” Address and demagogue this tragic shooting into a demand to round up all the conservatives and put them in camps.
The strategy that the little Newsweek rodent recommends has been successfully tried in the past – by one Adolf Hitler. Let us hope that the “new bipartisan Obama” (although there is this caveat) is now getting his advice from more humans and fewer rodents.
Democrats and their media lackeys are decrying the “angry” or “hateful” rhetoric which caused this shooting en masse. And, of course, they mean “conservative” and “Republican” “angry” or “hateful” rhetoric.
But why would anyone think that? Apart from the fact that they are ideologues and propagandists, I mean? There’s no evidence whatsoever that Jared Loughner EVER listened to “right wing talk radio,” or supported Sarah Palin, or was a member of the tea party, or even cared about charged political issues such as health care. The evidence is, rather, that he was severely mentally sick and living in his own twisted world.
They make the prima facia claim (with little or no supporting argument) that the angry partisan political climate can set off the mentally unbalanced. Which is itself a mentally unbalanced claim to make.
A few things, there. First, if this is so, and they really believe that, then how do they justify the eight incredibly angry years of “Bush derangement syndrome”? Why was it not true when Republicans were in power, but not true now that Democrats are in power? The mainstream media is far too pathologically biased and dishonest to show you that the WORST “climate of hate” comes from the left.
Second, why do Democrats, if they really believe their own crap, continue to make such bitter and polarizing comments if such comments can push the already unhinged over the edge? Take our liberal propagandist “sheriff, for instance:
“When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government — the anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country, is getting to be outrageous,” Dupnik said Sunday.
It’s clear who the sheriff has in mind. As he told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly: “We see one party trying to block the attempts of another party to make this a better country. … We as a country need to look into our souls and into our hearts and say is what we’re doing really in the best interest of this country, or is there something better we can do.”
Got that? The shooting was motivated by the rhetoric of “one party” — the Republicans — trying to stop the Democrats from making this “a better country.” Talk about “hate speech.”
Let me ask you, just for the sake of argument. Suppose that there is some crazed liberal out there in the wings. And said crazed liberal hears his law enforcement say, “We see [the Republican] Party trying to block the attempts of [the Democrat] Party to make this a better country.” And, of course, he’s aghast. What can be done to stop this evil Republican Party from keeping the Democrats from finally making this “a better country”???
Something must be done. Someone must act. By any means necessary. Including – maybe even embracing – violence.
How does this not follow on their own rhetoric???
Didn’t Obama command, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”?
The president beamed his command into my brain to bring a gun to the Republican congressman’s meet-and-greet.
Didn’t Obama command, “I want you to argue with them and get in their face.”?
“Yes! YES! Get in their face. With a gun! And then pull the trigger!”
Didn’t Obama tell his followers to “punish our enemies”? With said “enemies” being Republicans?
“My client says he had to punish those Republican congressmen. He says the president commanded him to kill those congressmen.”
Now, to set the record straight, having pointed out just a few of Obama’s comments, I don’t think Obama was calling for violence. Because, apparently unlike Democrats, I possess the moral intelligence to understand that he was using the same sort of common metaphors as Sarah Palin has when she has said, “Don’t retreat, reload.” And, on the flip side, I realize that if Sarah Palin is a disgrace, then the president of the United States is far more so, given the very office from which he has said these things.
A reasonable person can’t help but be confused at the constant double-standard that comes from Democrats. If this kind of rhetoric is wrong, if it leads to violence, then why do they keep doing it themselves??? And why do they denounce Republicans even while they themselves are doing the very thing they say is evil to do??? And how do their skulls not explode from containing all the contradictions???
Let me offer something that happened to me a couple of years ago to show how political rhetoric – whether “angry” or “hateful” or not – has little if anything to do with setting off an unhinged mind.
A very sweet lady in my church asked several of her friends to help her with a big garage sale she wanted to have. Being a sweet lady, she asked the police if it was okay to put out signs around town notifying drivers of her yard sale. Which most people just do. And, being a sweet lady, when the police told her people weren’t supposed to put out such signage, she didn’t do it. Which meant that her yard sale – with all the effort that went into it – was twisting in the wind.
So I made a nice, big sign that said “Yard Sale” along with the address, drove to the main drag in town, and waved that darned thing around to first the northbound traffic, then the southbound traffic, and so on and so forth. And when I came back a couple hours later, I was assured that my incredibly soul-numbing boredom had not been in vain: a lot of people suddenly started showing up.
I love sweet little old ladies. And don’t you dare mess with one while I’m anywhere nearby, if you like your teeth.
Well, all that was to bring up something that happened while I was holding that sign that merely said “YARD SALE” with a house address. A woman walking on the sidewalk came up to me, took a look at the sign, and screamed, “Yard Sale! YARD SALE!” And just went off on me in an uncontrollable rant for two or three minutes.
I never said a single word to her. There was no point. She was clearly not in her right mind, and there’s no point trying to argue with or reason with deranged people.
And the point is, anything can set these people off. Absolutely anything. Even the words “Yard Sale” on a cardboard sign, accompanied by the probably wide-eyes of a helpless man staring into the bulging eyeballs of the insane.
It’s not a matter of “avoid the anger.” Avoid everything. Shut down the economy. Close the stores. Stay in your homes. Shut off all the television and radio stations. Make tinfoil hats. Because even your very thoughtwaves can set these people off.
So this notion that Republicans and conservatives must “tone down the hate” – while of course Democrats may continue to feel free to unleash hell – is so paranoid and so unhinged that I can’t help but watch these Democrats and these reporters and see the face of that whacked-out woman going off on me about my yard sale sign.
Sheriff Dupnik saying that what people hear on the radio and on television makes them do the things they do could well come right out of the brain of Jared Loughner, who merely replaces “radio and television” with “government.” It’s equally insane.
I can easily picture the “sheriff,” and liberals like Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow cringing in lead-lined bunkers hoping that their tinfoil hats are thick enough to prevent Sarah Palin – who already lives rent-free in their heads – from taking over that final molecule and forcing them to do her evil bidding.
That’s basically the message of the left right now: “Put on your tinfoil hats, people! Because your all in danger of having your minds commandeered by rightwing hate!”
And, at risk of boring you, that was precisely what Jared Loughner’s disturbed and paranoid brain feared: mind control.
This Jared Loughner guy wasn’t livid over ObamaCare or the stimulus or anything based in reality; he was frothing at the mouth over the government being behind the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, he was furious over the government taking over our brains by controlling grammar, he was enthralled with his bizarre dreams, that sort of thing. He was as disconnected from politics as he was from the rest of reality. Loughner once confronted Rep. Giffords with a question that made no sense. And when she basically ignored it, his warped mind apparently fixated on her.
To make the Democrats’ despicable argument all the more so, based on their view, you could reasonably blame Gabrielle Giffords for the shooting. Jared Loughner was listening to her, and she clearly didn’t say the right thing – which incited him to violence.
Every single journalist and every single politician who demands that people – and particularly conservative people – tone down their political views should be immediately discredited as nothing more than despicable ideological hacks.
What we are seeing is the murder of seven victims. Not just six. The seventh is truth, which is now being contorted and ripped beyond the breaking point for the sake of partisan political ideology.
And I’ll end by saying this: the record of history could not be more clear: the worse monsters in political history have without fail been those who have demanded that their opponents be silent. The last thing we should ever want to follow is the political rationale that says, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
