Identify instances where the Leftist media tried to pin something on the Tea Party where it ended up being Muslims or Leftists who committed those crimes
Today, in the wake of the assassination attempt on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (which left 5 confirmed dead and over a dozen seriously injured, including the Congresswoman herself), the Leftist media tried desperately to pin this attack on the Tea Party movement and conservatives.
In reality, the would-be assassin was 22 year old Jared Lee Loughner, a confirmed Leftist who was upset Congresswoman Giffords opposed Nancy Pelosi and the Lefts open borders agenda.
What are other instances where the Leftist media attempted to pin some terrible event on the Tea Party or conservatives in general, where it turned out the atrocities were committed either by Leftist Democrats or Muslims?
We can think of a three others right off the top of our heads:
(1) NYC Times Square car bomb attempt: where Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Leftist media attempted to blame the Tea Party, but it was a Muslim who was responsible for attempting to detonate a car filled with makeshift explosives bent on murdering scores of people in Times Square.
(2) February 2010 IRS plane attack: where the Leftist media tried to claim the Tea Party was involved in an attack on an Austin, Texas IRS facility; turns out the pilot was a Democrat.
(3) Ft. Hood attack: where the Leftist media tried to claim the Tea Party was responsible for murders on an Army base; turns out it was a Muslim who shouted Admiral Akbar! at the top of his lungs while opening fire on his fellow soldiers.
Can you cite other instances where the Leftist media has tried its best to pin something on Tea Party members when in the end it turns out Muslims or Leftists were actually responsible?
Hat tip to luv2ndamend
The attack against a Muslim cabbie in New York City. It was perpetrated by a whitey liberal who supported the mosque while the cabbie turned out to be opposed to it. I swear within minutes the attacker was presumed by the state-run media to be a conservative.
Then there's the attack on the Holocaust Memorial in DC. Once again, the suspect was a whitey Democrat, but the state-run media tried to make it look like he was a conservative.
What about the numerous acts of vandalism against congressional field offices. These are almost always blamed on conservatives by the state-run media but almost always it turns out to be a Democrat doing the crime.
I’ll ping this and raise it to ping-a-linga ding dong...
Today its “tea party violence” but its nothing new for the left. How much time did they spend looking for two white guys in a van before capturing Malvo and Mohammad?
1995. Anti-government nutjob Timothy James McVeigh blows up the Murragh Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Bill Clinton blames it on El Rushbo fomenting a “climate of hatred”.
A lot of disappointed DUmmies today who initially were almost sure the assassin was a Palin protege.
Discovery channel guy
I don’t know....but it’s 11pm and FOX has on Geraldo (live) STILL trying to put the blame on the Tea Parties and Sarah Palin.
Discovery channel guy
JD didn’t let him, though
I dont know....but its 11pm and FOX has on Geraldo (live) STILL trying to put the blame on the Tea Parties and Sarah Palin.
And he gives that racist pig Sharpton a forum!
FOX is becoming a joke!
WHOREaldo is a disgusting sack of garbage(and I’m saying that in the nicest way possible) This is what the left is going to continue to do, see, they control the media, so they can basically say whatever the hell they want and get away with it..so they think if they spew this idiocy long enough people will start to believe it
A sin of omission, but applicable nonetheless.
1968. Palestinian immigrant Sirhan Bishara Sirhan guns down Presidential candidate Senator Robert F. Kennedy. In his notebooks and diary entries he states it is because RFK is too friendly with the Israelis.
Sirhan Sirhan is convicted of murder and written off as insane by the media and (except for the name) all but written out of history. He lives to this day in the CA penal system (now 66) but you’d never know it. Indeed, you’d think he is a native of Planet Zorgon. In Emilio Estevez’ movie: “RFK” the assassination is blamed on America’s culture of violence rather than an Arab anti-Zionist.
Fox News is becoming more left wing..I only watch them because its the only network I can stomach
Synthetic outrage and I am so looking forward to exposing it when people try to tie Sarah or Tea Party or Beer Farts to this heinous plick.
Almost the first thing Sen Lopez from AZ said was that the shooting was probably a result of Teaparty rhetoric. The sheriff speaking in the Tucson press conference today pointed the finger right at “heated rhetoric” and radio programs that “encouraged” hatred and discord.
So, I guess no matter what happens to this country and what is shoved down our throats, we are expected to just shut up and take it. If we dare protest we are inciting hatred. It’s time to push back—really hard.
And Lets not forget that Bill Ayers dedicates his book to Sirhan.
Remember the DNC shooter in Arkansas? Bill Gwaltney was shot three times. Everybody was blaming the right. Ended up being an employee he fired.
The teachable moment here is:
An American Woman Took down one of your tiny zib brethern!
An American Woman Stopped Jihad Nidal!
An American Woman Doesnt take shit off any two bit, mealy mouthed, American hating muslim.
A Woman, An American Woman, bested your guy.
This is what the left wants, reasons to attack the right. Some looney lefty is going to try something, I can see it happening now, they will use what happened today as an excuse to harm Sarah Palin and other Conservatives. I am SO sick of this liberal BS, we gotta continue to fight these bastards!
Rush Limbaugh credited Free Republic on this:
RUSH: I want those words in front of me. I've got them somewhere here. I had them segregated over here and I think I put that segregated stack somewhere, now I can't find it. But read the last two things you said. I know that communist manifesto, but what did he say about the capitalist manifesto? Say that to me again.
CALLER: From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.
RUSH: That doesn't describe capitalism to me at all. Gullibility and greed? Here it is. Here it is. Here it is. I found it. Somebody, one of our FReeper friends has got a great post with this guy's quotes, the anti-IRS screed from the Austin wacko Joseph Andrew Stack, and under a picture of Lenin is this: "The communist creed: from each according to his ability, to each according to his need. The capitalist creed: from each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed." That just sounds like gibberish to me, the second half of that. Now, under the picture of Michael Moore: "The recent presidential puppet GW Bush and his cronies in their eight years certainly reinforced for all of us that this criticism rings equally true for all of the government."
Here is what Rush was referring to:
1) The DC sniper Lee Boyd Malvo.
2) The Baton Rouge serial killer Derrick Todd Lee
The initial news reports had our attention focused on a disgruntled Soldier who had returned from Afghanistan.
This was on Foxnews.
This lasted about 2 hours.
They were wrong, all day long.
Don’t know about the other newsers. Can’t stand whatever that high pitched noise is when I turn on those channels.
Here, you can borrow this from now on:
They are losing their cache though
The big mouth bad-mouth Sheriff down there reminds me of Chief Moose. Probably just as competent too.
Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell.
Professor Amy Bishop was a big lib. She is the one that shot up the committee and also had murdered her brother when she was young.
Joseph Stack has already been mentioned.
Yep. The news business is always busy putting down conspiracy types and painting them as tinfoil wearing schizo’s.
But in the end these morons are no more than sensationalistic Conspiracy promoters and they never, never.... give any introspect and tell the audience “Boy, we sure got that wrong”.
Shep did but he is about as honest as a meth addict and ass transparent as cellophane.
He ain’t to with it and might be using a digger where there ain’t no dirt.
Whore-a-hole fits him to a T
Thought I saw some leftover lunch in that briar patch above his lips.
The left also tries to spin the OKC Bombing as an act of "Christian terrorism" even though Timothy McVeigh was an admitted agnostic.
The lefties went nuts blaming "crazy government-hating right-wingers" until it turns out the guy had cancer, had $600,000 insurance policy and a son deeply in debt.
Don’t forget that census worker that killed himself but tried to frame his suicide as a murder by an anti-government nutjob. The rabid media fell for it, hook, line, sinker—blaming it on some Tea Party member that was driven over the edge.
Ooh...just beat me by 4 minutes. :P
