Tuesday, December 8, 2009 | Kristinn

Posted on 12/08/2009 9:05:31 AM PST by kristinn

Headline at CBS News:

Sarah Palin Almost Gets Tomato in Face, but Jeremy Olsen Has Terrible Aim

Lede:

NEW YORK (CBS) Maybe Jeremy Olson should have practiced with a target first before attempting to pelt Sarah Palin with tomatoes at a book signing in Minn. Dec. 7.

The above was written at the CBS News page CRIMESIDER: The True Crime Destination From the Producers of 48 Hours Mystery

The article was posted by Carlin DeGuerin Miller.

Let's try a few alternate takes: If only he had better aim with Michelle Obama, or Nancy Pelosi, or Hillary Clinton, or even Barack Obama, Himself.

Think CBS News would be wishing for a success assault?

The vitriolic hate of liberals is infuriating. They demand compassion from Conservatives but don't do it themselves. I'd ask from them name one, just one, liberal group feeding the hungry or housing and clothing the homeless and poor (that is not including the guv’mint) ....

Ahh yes another b.s. hit piece from CBS. How many CSI shows do they air now because they have run out of ideas? 5? One city for each day of the week?

Their news division is a joke. An absolute joke.

Murrow, Severaid and the rest of them would be ashamed of today’s C-BS.

Interesting how there is so much talk of the climate of hate making left wing politicians targets of possible violence, etc yet Palin and Bush are the only ones to get things thrown at them lately.

It'll be very interesting to see who this thug really is:

Commander Stehlik said that there were still questions about why he had an alternate ID and that depending on where the investigation leads there might be more charges.

I checked the Minneapolis Star-Tribune for this story.

Had it been Al Gore, front page.

Nary a mention that I could find.

[[Will we ever see payback for all this animosity toward us and our like?]]

No- of course not- because hte GOP mantra is ‘don’t sink to their level’ while we’re being ripped to pieces and LOSING the battle for truth and morality. Apparently it’s better to fizzle into obscurity than to stand up for oneself agaisnt such viscious attacks

How long are these cretins going to get away with this shameless verbal assault on Sarah Palin with no consequences?

Is there not ONE person remaining in the LSM with a conscience?

Oh my God...I can hear the roars of laughter,taunting and foul jokes (Letterman woulda been in his glory)that would have emanated from the left,and the guy woulda been booked on 0prah,ABCCNNNBCCBS news shows,etc.,etc.,for the next six months as some kind of hero.
Gawker has already used "hero" to describe him,which is no surprise....
In other words,the left would have been acting as they normally do.

His very existence pisses liberals off. He’s a reminder of the kind of love they will never have or know, unless they have a change of heart and soul.

Tomatoes are known to make a splash.

I loathe the Pravda Media, especially the Viacommies at SeeBS.

OK...let's see...hummmmmmmmm...

Next big Tea Party we have in Washington, everyone bring a dozen tomatoes...it will help the farmers and the economy.

I'm not advocating anything, just wondering how the capitol building would look with a few thousand tomato stains on it. If they ask you why you have tomatoes, tell them "It's my lunch!".

That tomato thrown at Palin could have easily been some other object, including a bomb.

Time to fight fire, with fire. The left needs to understand that we are not going to tolerate these frat boy pranks at the detriment of our leaders.

The left likes to implement "zero tolerance" to control their interests, so it's about time we did that too. If their is one thing the left detests, it's having their own tactices used against them...because their arsenal is so limited, they run out of options.

I read someplace that this guy has “no fixed address.” In other words, your typical government hand out supprted leftist loon. I’m sure right now there are at least a dozen lawyers volunteering to take his case, and the loony left is probably already planning a fundraiser to support their new found hero. Just goes to show just how low the left really is when their heroer consist of either a loon with a shoe or a loon with a tomato.

The articles from CBS news and Gawker are despicable. Praising this idiot for attempting to assault a female? Showing remorse for him missing? I say we rally outside the Minnesota courthouse and pelt Jeremy Olsen with vegetables just to see how he likes it.

And by ‘vegetables,’ I mean used diapers.

CBS? What’s that, anothet alphabet agency the government snuck in on us?

If that is a TV network, I stopped watching years ago. IF I watch any TV, it is The Military Channel, The History (but not the Hysterical) Channel, Fox News (selectively), a few old movies and hockey games.

Palin is signing books tonight here in Colorado Springs. Hopefully the winter snow storm will be over by then. My guess is she'll be given a warm welcome by the Springs residents without tomatoes flying around. She has a lot of supporters here.

If he gets charged with assaulting a police officer Jeremy Olson will be in deep trouble. A hefty fine and some jail time would be good punishment for his juvenile antics.

"... at least one officer on stage with Palin certainly got a face-full of Olson’s "opinions" and now he faces charges of 5th degree assault on a police officer and disorderly conduct, according to Commander Stehlik."

Ironically, we said the same thing when Clinton was POTUS but, here we are again, with another juvenile masquerading as the president.

I know it's an impossible dream of mine, but if conservatives everywhere (40% of the poulation) began laughing at them outloud, this nonsense would end before January.

The MSM hatred is appalling and borders on psychotic.

Learning a valuable lesson in humility. From this point forward I pledge not to post putrid comments concerning the cretin quotient of Hilary, Michelle, Pelosi, Helen Thomas et.al.

Suffice it to say - they are a separate species.

When the armed revolution commences we will need to take over the media outlets. The local patriots in arms should go after cbs studiois first, as they are the weakest of them all and will not be a major loss to the left as even they know CBS is 100% irrelevant in today’s media. This SHOULD send a message to those outlets with more sway. However, if they refuse to cease enforcing the terrorist party’s policies to the masses, they too shall be taken over.

Just thinking ahead....

Either way when revolution begins, aim small-miss small, these hateful animals need to be neutralized swiftly.

There we go..if I wasn’t on any watch lists..I sure as hell am now.

But they know all hell is about to break loose. It’s exactly what they wanted.

The more the media keeps attacking her with baseless bullshit the more the common folk out there will think she is being unfairly picked on.

The issue is that the left would have nothing to worry about had they “let her go” after the election, but she intimidated them so much their vitriol has back fired upon them. Now they are giving her free press and allowing her to stay fresh in people’s minds.
