Before You Start Believing the Left Wing Media

You should do your own research and find out who this wacko really was: a flag burning, Marx reading, flaming anti-semite, NOT a member of any group associated with or connected to the TEA Party or 9-12.

As Arizona Shooting Story Unfolds, Media Already Blaming Tea Party/Sarah Palin

Andrew Sullivan of the was early to attempt to link lunatic killer Jared Loughner to the Tea Party, but he wasn’t the only one. The Washington Post’s Sandhya Somashekhar immediately attempted to color the story as an example of the “militant rhetoric” of the Tea Party movement and Sarah Palin.

Liberals on Saturday blamed the tea party movement’s sometimes militant rhetoric — for example, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin’s advice to her supporters via Twitter, “Don’t Retreat, Instead – RELOAD,” or Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle (R) advocating “second-amendment remedies” for some of the nation’s problems. Palin had also posted a U.S. map depicting crosshairs over the states where she hoped to oust Democratic incumbents. That map no longer appears on the Web site of her political action committee.

Additionally, within minutes of the attack, hard left-winger Paul Krugman of the New York Times asserted that the reason Giffords was shot was because her seat was not turned over to Republicans. Despite that no political motive was at all known, Krugman immediately asserted that it was the fault of the Tea Party and Sarah Palin.
As to Andrew Sullivan, on his DailyDish blog for the Atlantic, Sullivan posted an unconfirmed and anonymous claim from “a reader” who claimed to have heard people in a store callously saying that they were glad that a Republican could be appointed to replace the wounded Giffords. This “reader” also claimed that one of them said, “Well, that’s to be expected when you’re so liberal.”

Sullivan’s disgusting attempt to smear conservatives went on even as it was emerging that the killer’s ideology seems incoherent and not legitimately anchored in the left or the right.

Sullivan’s next idiotic attempt to smear the right was to conjure a connection between a campaign photo for Jesse Kelly — who is a Marine and was Gifford’s opponent recently — to using “violence” to further his political career because his campaign photo showed Kelly as a Marine holding his M16.

How many political candidates hold an automatic rifle in their open crotch in order to demonstrate their ideological bone fides? The conflation of conservatism with the willingness to use violence depressingly deepens.

Then, when this hack finally noticed that the killer’s book list included the Communist Manifesto and Hitler’s Mein Kampf, Sullivan tried to back track a bit saying that Loughner was, “Not exactly a Tea Party purist.”

Not exactly a Tea Party purist? Not a Tea Partier at all, more like.

The propensity of the leftists in the media, and in the government, to immediately blame all violence on the TEA Party, Palin supporters, and Glenn Beck is breathtaking. The speed with which they relaease all manner of false information within hours of the event is the most egregious violation of the public trust and shows a complete lack of any principles and makes me wonder if this was more than just a lone nut wacko.
