Leftists: Have You No Sense of Decency Left?

Leftists: Have You No Sense of Decency Left?

Richard J. Little

Having seen the effects of violence first hand in my profession, my deepest sympathy goes out to the families of the victims of today’s attack in AZ. Please pray for them.

However, I am also saddened to see all the knee-jerk comments in our media and many others who are attempting to use this criminal action for political advantage.
I have one question for you who seek to distort this crime to push your political ideology: Have you people no shame?  Have you, at long last, no sense of decency left?
I have heard terms like “ignorant” and “hateful” to describe people who have not the slightest to do with this unspeakable crime and have done nothing wrong but have simply spoken out and acted peacefully in support of Individual Rights, Freedom, and Liberty.
What is “ignorant” and “hateful” is to spread unfounded rebuking and draw negative inferences about people you know not an iota about and who have not a thing to do with this senseless crime – as we have been inundated with these slanderous accusations all day long……
Many people who know nothing about the person who committed this crime want to impugn other people because it fits their ideological bias and their pre-determined narrative that anyone who supports Individual Rights, Personal Freedom, and Constitutional/Limited government must somehow be “violent” or “hateful”.
Or that by opposing actions by politicians which are unconstitutional or destructive of our society you must somehow be “creating an atmosphere of hate” if you exercise your free speech rights to speak out against such actions.
This is total bunk and is simply a shameful attempt to silence those who you disagree with.
Those who support individual rights and free markets are supporting a society based on voluntary association, choice and cooperation among citizens.
Conversely, those who advocate for government-based collectivist “solutions” for every conceivable ill in the world are in fact the ones who call for the use of coercion, and if needed, force to make others comply with their wishes.
As a factual matter, there is not a shred of real evidence that connects Ms Palin, conservatives, or the tea party to this act of violence. No, political ads with “crosshairs” aren’t even close to “proof” of anything as not only did Ms. Palin use this but so did the DNC and the Daily KOS!
If one must look for a political motivation from this deranged individual his listing of the “Communist Manifesto” is probably all you need to know about the alleged shooter’s political influences.
I know the implication that it is likely that this individual was a committed leftist or simply an incoherent individual greatly disrupts your chosen narrative, but hey, why let the facts and the truth get in the way of your emotionally based political ranting.
Jan LaRue notes:
Clarence Dupnik, the Pima County Sheriff, repeatedly ranted in his press conference about some radio and TV personalities whose “vitriol,” “hatred,” and “bigotry” has a bad influence on mentally unstable people, “enflaming the American public.”  Dupnik opposes the AZ immigration law, calling it “racist,” disgusting,” and “stupid,” and said he wouldn’t enforce it.  Apparently, he thinks that only “vitriol” expressed by conservatives has a bad influence on people.

Obama: Civility for Thee but Not for Me Our Lecturer-in-Chief demands we do as he says, not as he does

Obama: Civility for Thee but Not for Me

Our Lecturer-in-Chief demands we do as he says, not as he does. During his University of Michigan commencement address, Barack Obama assumed the professorial role and began lecturing Americans on how to behave: “Now, the second way to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate. … But we can’t expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down. You can disagree with a certain policy without demonizing the person who espouses it.”

While the idea of a civil debate is certainly appealing, Barack Obama has done more to damage civility in public discourse than any presidency in 40 years. Obama is the first president since Richard Nixon to personally launch verbal assaults on his enemies. His administration is willing to attack anyone who dares to stand up against them. They employ the shockingly un-presidential strategy of going after their critics by name. Robert Gibbs, the president’s acid tongue spokesman, attacked CNBC reporter Rick Santelli after less than a month in office.

Obama then joins Gibbs by personally lashing out at critics. Obama is even willing to go after his allies that don’t fall in line. “Don’t think we’re not keeping score, brother,” Obama famously told Rep. Peter DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon.

Obama has issued scores of scathing personal attacks. He attacked Mitch McConnell as being in bed with Wall Street. He claimed John Boehner was a healthcare Chicken Little. He said Sarah Palin is “not exactly an expert on nuclear issues,” and called Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh a “troublesome” twosome spreading “vitriol.”

Obama’s comedy also has a political bite to it. Rather than employing the strategy of most recent presidents of engaging in self-deprecating humor, Obama makes fun of others. He tells jokes mocking Sarah Palin, Scott Brown, John Boehner, Charlie Crist and Mitt Romney.

Landon Parvin, an author and speechwriter for Democrats and Republicans, and a joke writer for three Republican presidents (Reagan and both Bushes) says, “With these dinners you want the audience to like you more when you sit down than when you stood up. … Something in [Obama’s] humor didn’t do that.”

Even Nancy Pelosi has told Obama to cool his critiques of Washington, D.C. Pelosi and other Democrats in the House are concerned that he is throwing them under the bus to save his own reputation. Obama is more concerned about preserving his own image and re-election prospects than he is about supporting his party in 2010.

Even Obama’s most reliable allies, the formerly dominant mainstream media, are beginning to take notice. Josh Gerstein and Patrick Gavin of Politico report: “Reporters say the White House is thin-skinned, controlling, eager to go over their heads and stingy with even basic information.” When the friendly press takes notice, there must really be a big problem.

It’s easy for the president to lecture about the lack of civility in politics, but when his administration is one of the most vicious voices in modern history those lectures are hypocritical. If Obama really wants to raise the public discourse he ought to start the cleaning in his own White House.

Go AHEAD punks, make our day!

Go AHEAD punks, make our day!

Who let the dorks out?

Jason Levin, creator of crashtheteaparty.org, said Monday the group has 65 leaders in major cities across the country who are trying to recruit members to infiltrate tea party events for April 15—tax filing day, when tea party groups across the country are planning to gather and protest high taxes…

Levin says they want to exaggerate the group’s least appealing qualities, further distance the tea party from mainstream America and damage the public’s opinion of them.

“Do I think every member of the tea party is a homophobe, racist or a moron? No, absolutely not,” Levin said. “Do I think most of them are homophobes, racists or morons? Absolutely.”

Go ahead punks, make our day! Cameras will be rolling; police will be standing by.

Left Wing Filth and Hatred

Left Wing Filth and Hatred

Left-wing hate
Alan Colmes says the Right is “struggling to draw equivalency with Obama-bashing.”
There’s no struggle. It’s quite easy to find evidence of vile left-wing hatred and violence…it’s abundant, and it’s tolerated and accepted by mainstream lefties:

No, the left-wing hatred that I’ve seen is NOT equivalent to the peaceful and mild mannered dissent that I’ve witnessed at the tea parties over the past year. The left-wing hate is truly disgusting.
