As some of you may know, a man named Jim David Adkisson, an unemployed truck driver went berserk and shot up a Unitarian Universalist church in Knoxville Tennessee. He murdered 2 people and injured about 5 others while they were performing a musical called Little orphan Annie. Adkisson claimed he did it because he was angered by liberalism and in particular, homosexuality.
According to a sworn affidavit by one of the officers; "During the interview Adkisson stated that he had targeted the church because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country's hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of major media outlets. Adkisson made statements that because he could not get to the leaders of the liberal movement that he would then target those that had voted them into office. Adkisson stated that he had held these beliefs for about the last ten years."
Of course anyone who is around the political scene and who lives in liberal states like Maine, New York, Massachusetts, California or DC, knows that liberals have ruined everything nice about America. If you've been on our blog long enough you will also know this as well. Despite this, everyone knows that killing them is not the answer. It will just make them martyrs in the eyes of the media as this tragedy already has done. Had the shooting taken place in a conservative church you can count on it the media and everyone else would be dead silent.
Such is the case with attacks on conservative activism and protests by left wing agitators like the incident in Philly where anti gay activists were locked up and threatened with 12 years in prison under bogus charges while the gays were breaking the law and obstructing sidewalks and signs. Such was also the case during counter demonstrations at anti war rallies where conservatives braved harassment and even assault while the media portrayed the counter demonstrators as bigots and screaming fanatics. Liberal moon bats like those cows from Code Pink disrupt speeches and events. Had this been done by conservatives they would have been maced, beaten and locked away. When another deranged man shot up a church in Colorado, 10 years ago, the media was largely silent as well.
The incident in Knoxville was even worsened by allegations that conservative talk radio was the culprit. Even though liberal news outlets have acknowledged that there is no info on what really triggered the shooting, (Many even acknowledged that Adkisson was a nice man who no one imagined would do such a thing.) Many Leftists such as Bill Moyers and others pinned the blame on conservatives based on the fact that he had books by conservatives such as Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity and Mike Savage. Immediately the liberal media went on the attack against conservative talk radio. The most shameful of these attacks were on Tax payer funded Public TV with Bill Moyers show Bill Moyers Now.
Using the funds of taxpayers, Bill Moyers and several others launched ad hominem attacks against radio "shock jocks" for their views on homosexuality, gays, the war in Iraq and others. Mike Savage was especially a target with his view of liberalism as a mental disorder and his view that Autism is being over diagnosed. Many of these remarks were taken out of context and instead of stating the facts based on some of these remarks, (See Also my previous article on Savage and Autism) and painted them as foaming at the mouth racists and extremists. The left is also making allegations that Adkisson hated minorities, in particular blacks and hispanics. Despite there being no evidence of this, the left has begun to parrot this about on the Internet and elsewhere.
Bill Moyers show also interviewed liberal radio jocks such as Al Franken and others claiming that Conservatives have too much power over the media and that they were responsible for hatred. Emails to Moyers program also advocated the so called fairness doctrine which would suppress free speech even possibly the Internet as well as hate speech laws. These so called hate speech laws which are used in Europe and Canada make it illegal to so much as criticize a certain group. These laws are also selective and they at times ignore attacks by groups such as black supremacists and Muslim extremists. Despite these so called laws, anti Semites and racism are common in Europe as well as Canada. All that has happened is that there is less free speech and less liberty.
The fact is that the reason conservative talk radio and publishing is strong is because of the fact that they are popular. The majority of Americans want to hear the truth, the facts and want to know about taking back America. They are not interested in socialism, atheism and other liberal garbage. This is why conservatives are strong and why liberals do not have that advantage. Despite this there is still available plenty of leftist garbage, The New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA times, The SF Chronicle ETC. Therese also PBS NPR and Internet sites that cater to liberals such as Daily Kos, Democratic Underground, Storm Front, Brady campaign, Code Pink and ANSWER.
Before closing I should want to mention that liberals are even more guilty of inciting violence than liberals. Take a trip to certain liberal forums and you will find them advocating violence everywhere. At Democratic Underground for example, there were posts advocating the assassination of Bush, as well as the murder of columnist Michelle Malkin. They even posted her address and a satellite photo of her residence. Go to liberal rallies and see the violence for yourself. They advocate killing anyone who disagrees with them. (Also view my past article stories of left wing tolerance in Maine) A friend of mine went to a peace rally in Portsmouth NH that advocated violence against those who were pro American and pro Israel. One of the participants was a skin head he had gone to school with who stated that 9/11 was orchestrated by the Mossad and that Jews flew the planes in the WTC.
In addition Liberals advocate abortion, the murder of unborn children, they advocate environmental laws that restrict economic growth and cause famines and poverty in the developing world, they advocate restricting the sale of firearms to defenseless victims making them even more defenseless. Criminals regardless get guns anyway. Liberals support Our enemies and support our surrendering the war. Clearly liberals are a true threat.
Moyer is preoccupied over “conservative Christians.”
I can’t stand watching more than a few minutes of the loon, but I was watching an interview he was conducting with some liberal offical, and he kept trying to get her to blame “conservative Christians” for Sarah Palin. She patiently refused to take the bait, and schooled him on rural politics. He gave up his lne of questioning grudgingly.
The guy is a nut case.
Phew... When will that old drunk Moyers just go away?
...And defund NPR too! They are really communist! Even more than PBS!
