The Left, Not the Right, Owns Political Violence
American Thinker ^ | January 10, 2011 | Michael Filozof

Posted on 01/10/2011 1:33:31 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

It took less than 24 hours for the political Left to seize upon the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people on Saturday to blame the political Right for the shooting.

Perhaps the most egregious example came from Paul Krugman of the New York Times, who wrote "We don't have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was." (The newspaper that published plagiarized and fabricated accounts of the "D.C. sniper" by affirmative-action hire Jayson Blair in 2003 is still publishing unsubstantiated suppositions without "proof," eh?)

"[Giffords'] father says that ‘the whole Tea Party' was her enemy..." continued Krugman, "And yes, she was on Sarah Palin's infamous ‘crosshairs' list." As if that was not enough, Krugman went on to invoke the specter of Tim McVeigh.

Well, we do have some proof now, and it's clear that the shooter was in no way connected to the Tea Party, the Republican Party, or any other movement on the political Right. Law enforcement officials have revealed that suspect Jared Loughner was rejected by the Army, kicked out of college, appeared to have mental-health issues, and was a reader of the "Communist Manifesto."

But since Krugman and the other members of the Leftist chattering classes have brought up the subject of politically-inspired violence, maybe we ought to remind them of the Left's protracted association with political violence.

We could begin over a century ago when William McKinley was shot by Leon Czolgosz. Czolgosz was inspired by anarchist Emma Goldman (today a darling of the academic feminists). Goldman's lover, Alexander Berkman, attempted to assassinate Henry Clay Frick because Frick was a prominent capitalist.

But it wasn't until the 1960s (when Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, and Ho Chi Minh became idols of the American Left) that the Left really ramped up the violence. Who can forget Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam? Or Eldridge "rape is an insurrectionary act" Cleaver and his Black Panthers? What about the bombings perpetrated by the Weathermen? Former Weatherman bomber Bill Ayers is, of course, a close associate of President Barack Obama. Ayers managed to escape prosecution (and proclaimed himself "Guilty as hell, free as a bird") but his wife Bernadine Dohrn served jail time for her part in the violence. Black radicals seized Cornell University at gunpoint in 1969, the same year the SDS and the Weathermen staged the "Days of Rage" riots. Race riots took place in Watts in 1965 and nationwide in 1968; leftists rioted at the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago in 1968. John Kennedy was murdered by a communist, and Robert Kennedy was shot by a Palestinian - hardly men of the Right.

The 1970s weren't much calmer. The Army Math Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was bombed by Leftist radicals in 1970. Heiress Patty Hearst was kidnapped and took part in and a series of armed bank robberies by the left-wing Symbionese Liberation Army. The SLA inspired Sarah Jane Moore to try to assassinate Gerald Ford --less than three weeks after Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, a disciple of Charles Manson, tried to kill Ford also. And what about the shooting of FBI agents at Wounded Knee by the American Indian Movement in 1975?

Since we're taking about violence against members of Congress, how can we possibly fail to mention the murder of Congressman Leo Ryan and the mass suicide of 900 people by the Leftist/Marxist Jonestown cult in 1978?

Does anyone recall that President Clinton pardoned members of the Marxist-Leninist inspired Puerto Rican terrorist group FALN? Clinton also pardoned left-wing radical Susan Rosenberg, who was imprisoned for her role in the murder of two police officers and a security guard in a robbery in 1981. She was offered a teaching job at Hamilton College, but public outcry forced her to decline the position.

More recently, we've seen anarchist and communist riots against the WTO in Seattle in 1999, and violent anti-Bush and anti-war protests. In 2007 Leftist playwrights in New York created a stage performance about killing president Bush.

The politics of the contemporary Left is absolutely intertwined with either tacit or overt support for violence. How dare the left-wing media attempt to pin the actions of a deranged individual in Tucson on the Right! To do so is nothing less than a calumny, a slander, and a blatant hypocrisy.

Remember when the progressive DNC called the tea party racists that incited violence and their Alinsky plan backfired?

They are trying it again trying to kill 4 birds with one stone with the horrific Az. shooting....

As Rahm told them never waste a crisis...

-Gun ban legislation

-TRYING TO silence the tea party by demonizing them (with the MSM helping)

-Heating up the hispanic/latinos even further to HATE republicans and vote democrat.

-Destroy Palin politically.

The dems are also attacking and angered in full force; as they cannot use the education system any longer to promote democrat politics promoting hate and inciting political war with white bad bad wolf Bush republicans.

Ethnic study classes (that were ceased thank God) in Az. were political pro democrat. If anyone doubts this just wonder why Obama incited racial political war in spanish to Latinos calling other fellow Americans that happen to be non democrat-republicans ‘the enemy’?

http://www.truth-out.org/ethnic-studies-classes-illegal-arizona-jan-166457

As well as... while all eyes are on Az. with complete media saturation someone better go check WHdot gov and see EO’s Obama may be firing off.He is implementing an internet user ID and the truth on ObamaCare WAS coming out in the news TODAY but AZ has the media front and center.

“How dare the left-wing media attempt to pin the actions of a deranged individual in Tucson on the Right! To do so is nothing less than a calumny, a slander, and a blatant hypocrisy.”

No mention of the fact such blame of their typical derangement syndrome is their standard operational procedure, or “SOP” known as “projection”. The Left does this all the time, and with great success.

If the Left is accusing, pointing the finger then one can bet whatever they are saying as they point the finger is a reflection of themselves.

John Kennedy was murdered by a communist

John Kennedy was allegedly murdered by a communist.

Approximately 20% of Americans now believe it was Vice President Lyndon Johnson who led the coup that killed JFK. Of course, with LBJ you get J Edgar Hoover, cross dresser pervert that would have been glad to join the effort to kill JFK.

LBJ killed JFK Link

The left has a near monopoly on assassinations and political violence. If the Founders were alive, they would be with the Tea Party.

The Founders knew how to do it right, not piecemeal like the Left.

Michelle Malkin has a great series of articles and posts on this going back years to the days when deranged Democratic operatives vandalized GOP campaign headquarters around the country in the 2004 election. Remember—one was even the son of a Dem Congressman? The examples are countless—remember the union thugs that beat up conservative protestors in Philadelphia (ultimately resulting in an Ed Rendell cover-up)? Remember the “Smoking Gun” mugshot gallery of felons wearing Obama t-shirts? This has been going on for years.

Jared Loughner: Driven to Kill by Right-Wing Extremists?

10 January 2011 06:11 John W. Lillpop

By John W. Lillpop

A sick, despicable coward named Jared Loughner turned an ordinary shopping center in TucsonJohn W. Lillpop, Arizona into a killing field on Saturday morning. This deranged monster murdered six innocent people in cold blood, including a nine-year-old girl, and inflicted severe injuries on several others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Unfortunately, the tragedy and sorrow of this awful day were magnified when, in some quarters, the events in Tucson were blamed on “right-wing” extremists.

The implication was that hard-edged rhetoric broadcast by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck had somehow driven the 22-year-old Loughner into the abyss of insanity and murder.

Unbelievably, some even tried to blame the carnage directly on Sarah Palin.

As one who has listened to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck for years and years, I admit that I have never—never!—heard any of these conservative superstars even come close to suggesting that any form of violence should be used to advance conservative principles.

For sure, Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck routinely express very strong opinions about the massive intrusion of government into the lives of the American people, spending by Congress which has exploded the federal deficit, and the socialist change advocated by Barack Obama.

Strong opinions and a call for resistance, yes. But violence of any sort? Never!

However, the Tucson slaughter has led many to call for an easing of the harsh rhetoric and hate speech.

I agree.

In fact, the following examples of outrageous rhetoric should serve as warnings to all:

Left Wing Host Jokes About Shooting George W. Bush

While Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck have never joked about killing Barack Obama, left-wing radio talk show hostess Randi Rhodes once suggested that President George W. Bush should be shot.

As reported in the media, Rhodes said the following:

“The (leader) is the president of the United States, so why doesn’t his father or his brother … take him out for a little fishing, and let him say some Hail Marys – he loves God so much. … You know, Hail Mary, full of grace, God is with thee – pow [gunshot sound] – works for me.”

Now THAT is reckless and irresponsible!

Congressional Democrats Say “F” the President

President Obama’s “deal” with Republicans to extend the Bush tax cuts to all, including the well-to- do, spawned extreme rage from those on the far-left of the Democrat party.

This leftist rage was reported in the media where congressional reporter Carl Hulse revealed that “Vulgar words were aimed at President Obama” during a closed-door meeting of Democratic House members, a fact initially reported by Roll Call.

To be precise, the words were “F*** the President.”

That sort of language directed at a sitting president could cause a barely- sane person to take insane action, and is otherwise the sort of rhetoric that should be avoided, especially by members of the president’s own party.

Bringing Guns to Knife Fights

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Candidate Barack Obama himself resorted to extreme rhetoric on occasion, including this quote:

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Surely a brilliant orator like Barack Obama could conjure up a less violent way to motivate his base?

This is even more dangerous rhetoric that should be avoided.

Republicans and Hand to Hand Combat

Barack Obama’s use of violent language did not end with his inauguration to the U.S. presidency.

In fact, on October 7 of 2010, President Obama said the following:

“A Republican majority in Congress would mean “hand-to-hand combat” on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy, President Obama warned Wednesday.”

Hand to hand combat? Is that sort of war-like language really necessary, Mr. President?

Is there not a danger that some unhinged soul might see your words as a declaration of war against fellow Americans who just happen to be Republicans?

Jesse Jackson: Cutting Obama’s Nuts Off....

Jesse Jackson: Cutting Obama’s Nuts Off

As reported in the media, the Reverend Jesse Jackson chose to use very graphic and violent language during the 2008 campaign to describe his disaffection with candidate Barack Obama.

“Jackson was caught on tape during a Fox News interview saying that he believed Obama was “talking down to black people,” remarking on recent speeches the Illinois senator made about fathers taking care of their children.

“I want to cut his nuts off,” Jackson later remarked.

Even though Reverend Jackson is of the same race and political ideology as Barack Obama, that sort of language is unacceptable for broadcast into homes where young, impressionable and unstable minds tune in.

It is also quite Un-Christian, Reverend!

In sum, the notion that vulgar, demeaning rhetoric should be reigned in is a good one.

Let’s start by slapping offenders on the left into shape!

Did Barack Obama Cause the Shootings Yesterday in Tucson?
Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, January 9, 2011, 9:30 AM

Townhall)

The media and democrats want us to focus on the nation’s “caustic political climate” after the tragedy yesterday. Maybe they should start with President Obama.
He may be the worst offender.

** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

If the media really wants to improve the “caustic political climate” they may want to start at the White House.

Did Barack Obama’s Violent Rhetoric Inspire Mass Murder In Arizona?

“In 2009, at the height of the heated town hall debates where America stood up and told the Obama regime they did NOT want government run health care, Obama gathered up his union thugs from the SEIU, and told them to “hit back twice as hard“!

The direct result of Obama’s violent rhetoric was the severe beating of Kenneth Gladney, a black man, at a ST Louis town hall meeting. Gladney was beaten by a large group of the purple shirted union thugs, and called a n*gg*r numerous times. Gladney was beaten so severely that he was confined to a wheel chair while he recuperated. Big Government has the nasty details of the results of Barack Obama’s direct call for violence, here.

Oh, and it gets better, an NAACP leader spoke out saying Kenneth Gladney DESERVED the beating that almost killed him because, get this, he wasn’t “black enough” and was acting like an “Uncle Tom.” You see, in the black community, and the democrat party as a whole, any deviation from the party line is simply not tolerated. You can read the details of the statement here.”

Durbin: Tone Down Violent Political Language

“The phrase, ‘Don’t retreat, reload;’ putting crosshairs on Congressional districts as targets – these sorts of things, I think, invite the kind of toxic rhetoric that can lead unstable people to believe that this is an acceptable response, Durbin said.”

Gee no rhetoric here Dick:

“If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners.”

Dick ‘Turban’ Durbin

Well, we do have some proof now, and it's clear that the shooter was in no way connected to the Tea Party, the Republican Party, or any other movement on the political Right. Law enforcement officials have revealed that suspect Jared Loughner was rejected by the Army, kicked out of college, appeared to have mental-health issues, and was a reader of the "Communist Manifesto."

The New York Times don't need no skinkin' proof...

Michelle Malkin has an excellent documentation of leftist hate on her site.

And now it starts today.

We will see many so-called news reports from the Obama media group of alleged threats to Democrat politicians.

My Fox Chicago
Representative Danny Davis Receives Possible Threat in Wake of Shooting

Updated: Monday, 10 Jan 2011, 8:39 AM CST

By Joanie Lum, FOX Chicago News

Chicago - Congressman Danny Davis reported that he received a possible threat after Saturday’s shooting in Arizona as Springfield readies for Inauguration Day.

Security will be tight at the inaugural ceremonies in Springfield, where Governor Pat Quinn will take the oath of office.

Davis said the threat came in an email to a staffer, calling it an indirect suggestion of a threat. It said “Could Danny Davis be next?” His office notified authorities.

AND don’t forget VAN JONES recent call for left to rise up and start a revolution! He mentioned a love for Che Guvarre, and that was a violent communist, whose killing, and control revolution in Cuba took away their freedom.

This shooter killed a REPUBLICAN JUDGE, so this isn’t all about the assasination attempt of Rep Giffords, it is about MASS MURDER by a maniac...and I would suppose with his Mein Kompf book, it may have an anit-semetic twist, as Giffords was jewish. It was his opportunity for 15 min of fame, and he didn’t have the money to target Wash, DC, so he used the local Rep, it was convenient act of opportunity. This nut, as substantiated by classmates, was a mass murder waiting to happen.

A large part of the Tea Party is evangelical christians, who in the Bible are described as Jewish by adoption, with Jesus as their elder brother. So trying to say the Tea Party is behind this is ludicrist, for Ms. Giffords was a blue dog (fiscal conservative), which would agree with the tea parties desire to stop increasing the deficit, and lower taxes.
There is a perverse thinking on the left, and their political accusations are like swiss cheese. The Healthcare Vote by this Rep was NO Doubt an arm twist by Pelosi, and she did NOT vote for the woman as leader in protest this term. The woman was a former Republican, who changed parties, and a centrist...not a target of Tea Partiers except in the election, to try for a true conservative.

Surprisingly, he didn’t show the reported the email as proof. As crooked as he is (and I know he is, I’m from Chicago), I don’t recall this crook speaking of threats before. Hmmm-I call BS.

Are these fake emails being sent by their leftist cohorts? I don’t believe it. Could it be the standard chain emails libs are know for? If he went to anyone other than the Propaganda Media, they would ask to SEE the alleged email as proof before printing this tripe.

Conservatives must not be cowered by these lies. We need to confront them and demand proof of accusations.

Off to listen to Rush. He will be on fire today!!!
