Joan Walsh Doubles Down, Claims There Are No Violent Liberals [Clueless Leftist of the Year...?]
Newsbusters ^ | 04/21/10 | Mitchell Blatt

Posted on 04/21/2010 9:10:41 PM PDT by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

Joan Walsh was unable to name an extreme left-wing media figure yesterday while appearing on MSNBC and today she is digging in deeper on her blog.

Now she says that she wasn’t just talking about media figures, of which Keith Olbermann and Ed Schultz are just the most obvious examples, but that she was talking also about violent nut jobs who threaten politicians.

The title of her post is “There is no liberal Rush Limbaugh,” and I guess she’s correct if she’s talking about ratings.

The problem on the right includes extremists who've made death threats against Democrats like Patty Murray, Bart Stupak, Nancy Pelosi and, of course, President Obama. There's no one on the left posing the same threat to leaders on the right -- or if there is, I'd like to know about it.

Interestingly, she says:

(The whack job who threatened the folks who made the movie "Babe," along with Obama and GOP whip Eric Cantor, doesn't count.)

Why doesn’t the guy who threatened to Eric Cantor count? Because he’s a whack job? Why yes, anyone who threatens to kill someone is a whack job.

Norman Leboon did threaten to kill hundreds of people including President Obama, in YouTube videos, under the account “shiamuslimcantbestop”. He did donate to the Democratic National Committee. He is not any more representative of liberal threats against conservatives than the few people whom Walsh listed are of conservative threats against liberals.

In addition, there have been multiple instances of GOP offices targeted with vandalism in recent weeks since the healthcare bill passed. A brick was thrown through the Ohio Republican office windows with the message “Stop the right wing,” attached. On September 10 last year, the offices of FreedomWorks were evacuated when they received a bomb threat.

There are many more examples of left-wing violence cited in this Newsbusters post, and threats against Republican offices are certainly not limited to just this year.

There will always be some kooks out there threatening people, and there are kooks on both sides. It’s not because Democrats put out a map with targets on selected Senators or because Ed Schultz told his viewers that “Republicans want to see you dead.”

Oh, and why didn’t Joe Scarborough name Keith Olbermann as an extremist liberal media figure? Perhaps that’s because he works for a network that just suspended Donny Deutsch for including Olbermann on his segment “America the angry.”

Bill Ayers: “Kill all the rich people...break up their apartments, kill your parents, that’s where it’s at” - 4 goons in SEIU shirts beat a black man who was handing out free bumper stickers at a Tea Party gathering - “Stand up for what you believe, argue with your neighbors, get in their faces” - - - - - Barack Obama.......

The Drudge Report has reported left-wing Air America Radio aired a spot on Monday threatening to assassinate President Bush for trying to reform Social Security. Network yacker Randi Rhodes played the following “humorous” radio drop during her afternoon drive show:

A spoiled child is telling us our Social Security isn’t safe anymore, so he is going to fix it for us. Well, here’s your answer, you ungrateful whelp: [audio sound of 4 gunshots being fired.] Just try it, you little bastard. [audio of gun being cocked].

Rhodes then giggled when the spot finished playing.

Please refresh my memory - why should I care about anything that Joan Walsh does, writes, or cares about in the public arena?

Letsee, there was the liberal socialist that killed a security guard at the Holocaust museum, the SEIU thugs that stomped a black conservative, the Canadian liberals who mobbed Ann Coulter, American liberal students who routinely attack conservative speakers, John Walker Linh...Need I go on?

Who is she kidding?

Incredibly, virtually every slackjawed socialist yip-yop posting in response to her failed attempt at frenzied arm-waving, thus far.

Pitiful, ain't it...?

These Libs are committed 'kool-aid' drinkers. They are no different than those whom they 'imagine' they attack. They are disciples - they ARE believers and they are missionaries for 'change' they believe in. They mock the Faith of those religious; while they speak in mindless Liberal mantras. They mock the idea of God; while making their own and as well, imagining they are their own.

And so we have what appears, is a faith based Liberalism wrapped in a religion of narcissism (or vice-versa/lol) These Libs do see a 'god image'; but only when they look in the mirror. And as for as long as the 'god in the mirror' looks back at them; they will NEVER see the truth, that so escapes them.

And so it is, we must suffer their absurdities of reason; their absurdities of 'virtue'. And the whole world has suffered their missionary zeal - as they go about, doing 'good in the world'. the dangers as they do 'good in the world'.
