The Left’s Script of Hate


Pages: 1 2

“As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy,” a former classmate, Caitie Parker, tweeted. “I haven’t seen him since ’07 though. He became very reclusive.” Parker later explained on Twitter, “He was a political radical & met Giffords once before in ’07, asked her a question & he told me she was ‘stupid & unintelligent.’” Loughner listed online The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf as favorite books. In addition to next year’s Armageddon, Loughner’s bugbears included a currency backed in precious metals, government brainwashing, and the illiteracy of everyone but himself.

Whatever Loughner’s jumbled political outlook, other incitements—namely, prolonged drug use and mental illness—seem far more plausible than radio shows he may or may not have listened to, television programs he may or may not have watched, and Tea Party rallies he may or may not have attended. A Loughner classmate termed him a “pothead” and a failed drug test apparently played a role in his rejection from the Army. A fellow student at community college confided that there is “a mentally unstable person [Loughner] in the class that scares the living crap out of me.” That school suspended Loughner, with readmission contingent on a mental health exam. Like the alleged shooter, pundits ignoring all this to politicize a horrible tragedy live in a fantasy world. Faulting the political criticism that harmed their political interests last November for multiple deaths in Tucson last Saturday is an exercise in narcissism. It’s not all about you.

Given the limited facts available, it might be reasonable for pundits to wonder aloud about the effect of drugs on young brains or why it’s so difficult to separate the manifestly deranged from society.  It certainly can’t be healthy to be so obsessed with politics to so quickly see political adversaries behind a crackpot’s shooting spree.

There’s something indecent about politicizing a multiple victim public shooting, particularly on the very day that it occurred. There’s also something pathological about reflexively assigning the political outlook of one’s opponents to those who commit evil. This speaks more directly to the motives of these slanderers than it does to the killer.

Like Joe Friday, the public is eager for just the facts. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, and his media imitators, keep force-feeding a stale narrative.

    I was remembering Pym Fortuyn, the popular Dutch opposition leader who opposed Muslim immigration and was for this reason vilified and defamed by the liberal Dutch media until he was murdered by an unstable "animal rights activist" earlier this decade. The elite who controlled the liberal media celebrated Fortuyn as a martyr after his death, but the Dutch people weren't fooled. They knew this was a genuine case of incitement to murder.

    Fast forward to today: The despicable Charles Johnson at LGF has directly linked Jared Loughner to the Tea Party because of Loughner's desire to get our currency back on the gold-standard. I kid you not. This is his "evidence". And we're seeing it throughout the liberal media. It is as hollow and hypocritical as can be, but what else is new?

    Timothy McVeigh supposedly represented the Christian Right when he perpetrated his act of mass murder in 1995, even though he was no Christian and in no way a traditional conservative. Liberals (including Georgetown's own super-dhimmi, John Esposito) have consistently drawn an equivalence between the singular act of McVeigh's and the tens of thousands of religiously-motivated acts of terrorism emanating from the Muslim world over the last decade…as if the former mitigated the latter.

    The "Christian extremist" is as essential to the liberal narrative as "right-wing hate speech". How else can the multiculturalist rationalize the daily carnage of Islamic Jihad?

    Remember how George Bush was demonized as "Hitler"?…How Dick Cheney was cast as "Darth Vader"? We're all familiar with the way conservatives who decry illegal immigration and creeping Sharia are regularly tarred and feathered as "racists" and "Islamophobes"…(as Fortuyn was before his murder). Yet, these hypocrites demand that WE tone down the political rhetoric.

    It's all nonsense folks, liberal bull**** at its most hypocritical. We're not buying…and neither is the American people.

    Wasn't it Lenin who said facts don't matter? The speed and intensity in which the Left has gone after this is no accident. It's the prime directive. Just like the BP incident–it was the perfect crisis to further advance the envirowackos' agenda to shut down drilling. This horrible shooting is to them the perfect crisis to shut down talk radio, FOX News, and conservative internet sites. Not to mention the golden chance to go after guns. Don't need "facts" when you've got a well-scripted agenda in search of a catalyst.

    • JRPetruk

      Yes, Lenin said "facts do not matter".
      Cheney said that "deficits do not matter".
      So there you have it. The positions of the left and the right.

    So I would like to ask you right wing nuts – why do you right wing wussies talk about armed violence and then when armed violence happens that links to the right wing you run away from it like panty wearing cowards?

    Why do you right wingers bring up images of armed resistance to the govt? Maintain the right to bear arms is for using it against the govt if it becomes tyrannical and thus bring your rifles to campaign rallies? Why do you show up with the "Don't Tread On Me" flag and slogan at rallies (the slogan is a threat of armed retaliation) and Why do you play act at joining militias on the right? War gaming against a future armed resistance against the govt?

    You were just kidding? Just posturing? Trying to look macho because you all are insecure about your manhood?

    At least the Irish IRA and Basque ETA and the Palestinian PLO had the balls to back up their political talk with political violence, but you American gun rights loving right wingers only talk a good game of armed resistance but in reality you are all impotent cowards who can't get it up and shoot blanks when you do.

    • tagalog

      In precisely what way was the right wing linked to this particular act of violence?

      Both the Left and the Right have taken their turns in engaging in talk (but not much action) of armed violence during the past 40 years. If I were asked to list violence on the Left and compare it with a list of violence on the Right, I am certain that the list of violent left-wing acts would be far longer than the list of violent right-wing acts.

      If you want to talk about having the balls to back up talk of political violence, I would like to refer you back to the events leading up to and immediately after May 4, 1970. Prior to that date, there was a lot of talk on the Left about revolution and "bringing the war back home," and all that. After the deaths of the four students at Kent State, the silence was deafening, and the Long March Through the Institutions got underway as America's leftist revolutionaries went back to grad school.

        You are a liar mattogilvie55 – the right wing always talsk about armed resistance to the federal govt if need be and you have members of the right wing show up openly armed with rifles at political rallies and you have signs that espouse armed violence against Obama's govt it it enacts policies the right deems against the constitution as the right wing views the constitution. All you have to do is google "Tea Party + Guns" to see the lies in your statement. So all those guns are for show? So don't be mad when people equate the right with political violence these days.

            So why do you right wing douche bags tote rifles and handguns to political rallies? What's the point if not an implied threat of armed violence?

            You can find me at The-Peoples-Forum online.

            Right wingers can't be toting guns at political rallies and spouting about 2nd amendment solutions to political problems and then squeal like girls when anyone takes you at your word. Why do you right wingers act shocked, SHOCKED! that people would equate violence with the right when you right wingers walk around political rallies like at the Tea Party rallies (and other rallies) openly armed, with signs that call for armed resistance to the Federal govt if need be, defending calls by your candidate for 2nd amendment solutions to political problems and other such behavior and language.

            I am attacking the faux outrage on the right wing at being linked to armed violence when armed violence is a talking point of the right – used as a rally cry and as a threat in political memes.

            Why do you run away from this armed image when confronted?? Are you armed 2nd amendment solution spouting types really cowards? Wussies at heart? You just like to fantasize about playing out the movie "Red Dawn" and not really armed and dangerous? (I have seen plenty of right wing signs and statements saying they were proud to be armed and dangerous at political rallies).

      Where was the shooter linked to anything right wing?

  • Wesley69

    Political rhetoric is heated, but that is the nature of our political system. It has been throughout our history. This didn't motivate the killer as we learn now. Those using this tragedy to point fingers without evidence and score political points are despicable and should be repudiated themselves. Those include Sheriff Dupnik, Keith Olbermann and Paul Krugman.

    While the bodies of the victims aren't even cold, Leftists seized on this moment calling for a wide variety of liberty-killing initiatives such as gun control, net neutrality. Considering that the killer wasn't influenced by the rhetoric of the Right, do you think for a minute the Left will apologize to the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, or Glenn Beck?? The Left is looking for any and all opportunities to destroy this movement that crippled their own.

    • Destro

      You right wingers can't be a gun toting at political rallies, 2nd amendment quoting, violence threatening ("2nd Amendment solutions) and then squeal like girls when anyone takes you at your word.

      • Chezwick_Mac

        Hey Doofy,

        Who "took us at our word"? Jared Loughner? He's got absolutely nothing to do with us. His favorite book is the Communist manifesto! It was apparently Marx who whispered in his ear.

        • trickyblain

          Well, it was on a list. Mein Kampf was there as well. And, of course, virtually every historian considered Hitler to be on the hard-right until modern "conservatives" (with no hisorical background) like Jonah Goldberg and Glenn Beck decided that they could lump Hitler, along with every other "bad" thing, on the left.

          Personally, I doubt this psycho read any of the books on the list – he was going for shock value.

          • jgreene

            @trickyblain, unless you've actually read both the Communist Manifesto (Hitler did) and Mein Kampf as well as KNOW your history you'll remain as ignorant as you obviously are.

            Hitler and Stalin were tow peas in a pod with different uniforms – they were both Socialists. The Nazi Party was the National Socialist Party and of course the Communist Party was Stalin's flavor.

          • trickyblain

            Don't talk to me about knowing my history when you are evidently unaware that Hitler hated communists second only to Jews.

            The word "socialist," in terms of Nazis, is meaningless, nondescriptive and oxymoronic. Sort of like the "Patriot Act" (which actually underminses liberty) or "Heathy Forest Act" which allows clearcutting).

Is all this talk of "Don't tread on me" BS designed to boost your fragile girly egos? If you don't plan on using your arms in a political setting except in some super extreme never will happen anyway scenarios – why do you use this armed imagery?

          • tagalog

            I answered your question: I said that both left and right have at times made gestures toward armed rebellion. The most credible threat of armed revolt came from the Left, during the 1970s. It ended in a rather craven balloon deflation that was entirely completed within 24 hours when it appeared that people were going to take them at their word in the spring of 1970. Lefties scurried away from "the light' like a bunch of cockroaches in a New York City walkup when the lights are turned on.

            The right took to posturing with guns at political rallies, and you would hear an occasional person piping up about the tree of liberty having to be watered from time and time, but it amounted to nothing like the "bringing the war back home" and "off the pig" rhetoric of the lefties of the 1970, when there were thousands of bombings and bomb threats by Bill Ayers, the Weathermen, and their ilk.

          • Wesley69

            The differences between Right and Left will never been settled. They never have. That is the history of this country and its political Parties. There are violent jackasses on both sides, but they do not represent everyone.

            As Americans, we must agree on certain things, why this country exists, citizen rights and responsiblities, how the system works. Violence is not a part of it. Political rhetoric, is and it is can be nasty as evidenced by our history. That means that we respect each others First Amendment rights. Whether you like the speech or not, speech is to be protected.

            The same can be said of gun ownership. The argument goes guns don't kill people. People kill people. A ban of guns harms law-abiding citizens because it leaves them at the mercy of gun toting criminals. In this age of political & religious unrest, guns provide a degree of security to those who possess them. I do not believe Liberals want a total gun ban, but if they did, I would want to know their reasons. A healthy distrust of a government is a good thing for maintaining liberty.

  • Wesley69

    Something that may have influenced the killer is our CULTURE OF VIOLENCE.

    Remember George Harrison of the Beatles and his song, "Piggies?" Charles Manson took the song's message and whacked Sharon Tate and others in the LaBianca murders of 1969. What Harrison responsible for Manson's actions? No, Manson and his sick mind made the decision.

    Look at our society today. You can see this culture in our movie theatres, on TV, in our music, on our street corners. Consider our fascination with vampires, satanic possessions, ghosts, homicides, police investigations, championship wrestling, a big hit in football games, fights in hockey games, the ultimate fighter. What is the newest TV show with the highest ratings – Hawaii Five O.

    When we start looking for solutions, we need to realize its bigger than political rhetoric, or gun ownership or targets on a map. My question, is, is Hollywood going to stop production on the Twilight series or will Warner Brothers not release Harry Potter & the Deadly Hollows due to their violent themes? Or The Rite about possession? Certainly not, there is $$$ to be made. Let's stop the hypocrisy

    Putting aside the issue of whether Gabrielle Giffords is jewish under strict jewish law, have Obama's ugly, negative policies on Israel created a climate where physical attacks on jews are more likely?

    We live in a desensitized society. Kids, young adults, haven't had the benefit of discipline their entire lives and we sit back and try to figure out why this maniac goes on a shooting rampage. Young people today are disconnected to reality and they don't believe there are consequences to their actions because they're not bright enough to figure out what happens on television is fiction and life doesn't work that way. This 22 year old 'kid', sounds like he had the mental capacity of a 5 year old…he didn't get his way so he's going to act out to get attention but his version of acting out cost lives. He had no fear of what consequences lie ahead of him. Much like the youth of today, he's living in the 'moment' and couldn't grasp the seriousness of the crime he was about to commit. Add in the fact that he was more than likely under the influence of narcotics, this just added to his already delusional thinking because he thought it would be 'cool'.

    The assault on a decent popular women like Sarah Palin is the lowest form of political sludge yet in vented. She charmed the masses where ever she went and cheerfully boosted many Tea Partiers into office. She is not a threat as an expected president.
