Sometimes it’s very hard not to feel empathy for the progressive media; their arguments keep getting shot down rejected. While most Americans have been occupied with praying for the wounded or mourning for the loss of the dead respirationally challenged from that horrible Tuscon shooting perpetuated by the mentally imbalanced Jared Loughner, the progressives in the mainstream media have been occupying their time attacking placing blame on everyone and everything conservative.
Take NY Times columnist/MIT economist Paul Krugman for example. He wrote a piece that placed the blame directly on the right wrong side of the aisle, blaming the shooting on their choice of words:
..it’s the saturation of our political discourse — and especially our airwaves — with eliminationist rhetoric that lies behind the rising tide of violence.
Where’s that toxic rhetoric coming from? Let’s not make a false pretense of balance: it’s coming, overwhelmingly, from the right. It’s hard to imagine a Democratic member of Congress urging constituents to be “armed and dangerous” without being ostracized; but Representative Michele Bachmann, who did just that, is a rising star in the G.O.P.
A message to progressives: By all means, hang Senator Joe Lieberman in effigy.
Was Krugman being hypocritical? No way. Klugman’s a genius for God’s Pete’s; he won the Nobel Prize just like President Obama! He had to have made the charge claim knowing that it would seem hypocritical. I bet he had no other choice! In fact, I bet all of the progressives had no other choice.
Sometimes when a child gets hurt they strike out complain about the first thing they can. And usually it’s something of which they are frightened. The progressives felt so much pain over the shooting and deaths in Tucson this past weekend they needed to lash out at someone, and because they are most frightened about the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, talk radio, FOX News etc., racist haters, they lashed out with false claims against the things that gave them nightmares.
Though it may be a natural reaction, the progressives’ false charges are divisive and fight against make it difficult to have a political dialogue between the right and left. The left doesn’t really want to make false claims, they are simply immature not age appropriate and have nowhere else to go.
Being a unifier I decided to help by redirecting the progressive blame elsewhere. That’s right; I have developed other favorite targets issues for those progressives in the mainstream media, Congress, and even the dopey I.Q. deficient Sheriff Dupnik, to attack place blame on:
