Time Magazine: "Dead Man Walker,"
ConservativeAmerican.org ^ | 3/13/2011 | Peter Andrew

Posted on 03/14/2011 6:16:45 AM PDT by katiedidit1

Dead Man Walker?! Is that the kind of civility President Obama pretended to be in favor of? The call for a kinder, gentler political debate certainly did not last long as the democrat party’s Time magazine lashes out in this headline against Conservative American Governor Scott Walker.

What do you think? Did this go too far?

Like the race card, the call for civility is a complete joke. It's completely one way. It's a tool for the Left to beat their opponents. It cannot be taken seriously.

If I use inflammatory language, and a Leftist says I should be more civil, I would just laugh in their face. "Civil? Toward you? Are you kidding? You deserve nothing but ridicule and scorn. Now shut up."

The radical Marxist left, of which Time is a primary advocate, is purposefully instigating violence.

They will not like the results.

Especially the personnel of Time.

He did not mention Japan on his weekly address.

He's not "in the cross hairs" of Sarah Palin...
...but this image is hardly "civil" debate.
From newsbusters.org:

Wisconsin's Governor Wins But Is He Still Dead Man Walker?

The first paragraph wasn't any more delicate:

The state capitol of Wisconsin had taken on an eerie quiet on Friday. Gone were the throngs of protesters who occupied its marble floors like a campground in summer. The midnight honking of cars circling the white building had ceased.

The chalk "dead man" outlines etched with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's name on the sidewalks remained in dismembered parts, incompletely washed away by clean-up hoses.

You hadn't heard about these chalk outlines?

Well, that's not surprising. As NewsBusters reported Sunday, most media outlets don't think death threats or violent imagery are a bad thing when Republicans are the target...

It's pretty obvious at this point that the whole "civility" bit was just a lame attempt to shut conservatives up.

Imagine the outrage if he were a Dem and the Weekly Standard had used that headline...............

Then they'd be bumping coverage of Japan and northeast US floods for political psychologists wagging their finger at all Republicans and the anchors espousing their opinion that political speech has never been so caustic. Then they'd take breaks to give 4 minutes of coverage to natural disasters.

Time Magazine: Violent Rhetoric and Arizona Politics

Last March, at the height of the health care reform battle, Giffords' office was vandalized. She mentioned in an MSNBC interview that a Sarah Palin graphic had depicted her district in the crosshair of a gun sight. "They've got to realize there are consequences to that," she said. "The rhetoric is incredibly heated." The corner next to her office had also become, she said, a popular spot for Tea Party protests.

Like the race card, the call for civility is a complete joke.

What it really means is for us to “shut our pie holes” and do what we say. It’s their mentality. I sometimes with I could be somewhere I could not hear that constant, putrid whine coming from liberals and democrats.

Say what you will about Walker, but He stepped up and tried to deal with the debt. If the people of Wisconsin can’t see that then they are in the dark.

Mass media is pure Dem propaganda.

The issue in WI was about the middle class unable to pay for government freebies for union workers. No mainstream media ever even mentioned this fact.

Actually I tend to think it will be a case of overheated rhetoric getting inside the unhinged mind of an unhinged leftist or union thug and something spiraling out of control.

Basically their interpretation of the Arizona shooting - but this time for real. The left always projects onto us that which they themselves are guilty of.

I fully expect all this ratcheted up violence to one day take root inside some nutjob’s head and something will happen in a quite seemingly random fashion.

BTW I think this has a lot to do with how all the jihadis operate. You get the overblown stories of muslims as victims taking root in the addled brains of would be jihadis and next thing you know someone is getting in their SUV and running down college students at UNC to avenge the poor widdle muzzies.
