Blame Righty


Pages: 1 2

I agree with President Obama. When it comes to politicizing random violence, he and his supporters have been “far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than” they do. Recognition is the first step toward reconciliation. It’s time to recognize the poisonous pervasiveness of the Blame Righty meme.

For the past two years, Democratic officials, liberal activists and journalists have jumped to libelous conclusions about individual shooting sprees committed by mentally unstable loners with incoherent delusions all over the ideological map. The White House now pledges to swear off “pointing fingers or assigning blame.” Alas, the Obama administration’s political and media foot soldiers have proved themselves incapable of such restraint.

In April 2009, a disgruntled, unemployed loser shot and killed three Pittsburgh police officers in a horrifying bloodbath. The gunman, Richard Poplawski, was a dropout from the Marines who threw a food tray at a drill sergeant and had beaten his girlfriend. Was this deranged shooter who pulled the trigger to blame? Nope. Despite evidence that Poplawski’s homicidal, racist tendencies manifested themselves years before Obama took office, lefty publications asserted that the real culprit of the spree was the “heated, apocalyptic rhetoric of the anti-Obama forces” (according to mainstream liberal Atlantic Monthly pundit Andrew Sullivan), along with Fox News and Glenn Beck (according to mainstream liberal journalist Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly online).

That same month, a sick, evil man named Jiverly Voong ambushed an immigration center in Binghamton, N.Y. Recently fired from his job, Voong murdered 13 people, critically wounded four others and then committed suicide. The instant psychologists of the left knew nothing about the disgruntled man of Vietnamese descent and undetermined political affiliation. But within hours of the shooting, liberal mega-website Huffington Post commenters had overwhelmingly convicted GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, the National Rifle Association, Fox News, Lou Dobbs and yours truly. Liberal radio host Alan Colmes pointed his finger at the “huge anti-immigrant backlash in this country” — never mind that tens of millions of legal immigrants and naturalized citizens have coped with hardship, overcome racism and embraced assimilation without going bloody bonkers.

In June 2009, a depraved, elderly anti-Semite named James von Brunn gunned down a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in D.C. Washington Post blogger Greg Sargent and lefty Center for American Progress think-tank fellow Matthew Yglesias immediately invoked the Obama administration’s report on right-wing extremism, leading to a wider chorus of condemnations against the tea party, talk radio and the entire GOP.

    Liberals and leftists hate the truth. When you research History and the Progressive beliefs their only hero's they seem to have are Mao, Ho Chi Mhin, Castro, Che Rivera,Stalin all just wonderful mass murdersl

    Don’t forget Charlie Manson, who was a psychopath at 13 and schizophrenic later on. His politics matched those of the radical left, and today he has a cult following of eco-fascists.

  • Soylent Green

    All of this currently in vogue talk about returning 'civility' to public discourse and 'calming down the rhetoric' does is imply that, evidently the Left must be correct in it's assertion, that violence is caused by Republican opposition to their socialist agenda and not by the perpetrator's own personal demons. And as Michelle says, WE will, THEY won't.

    Malkin could cite a million examples of such blind hypocrisy from the left and it wouldn't matter. Just one instance of a righty malefactor – real or assumed – is all that's required to preserve the liberal's bigoted stupor and kneejerk sense of self righteousness. They run on emotion; not reason. And they have a desperate need to feel good about themselves in the service of their own self-redemption. Maxentropy.com

    Right on! You could also add the black church burnings during the Clinton administration. These were bogus, but were supposedly indicative of a wave of intolerance and bigotry.

    Q for Michelle: Why are the Leftys not demanding a 2-state in Egypt – one for the Arab Muslims – and one for the original native Copts?

    These are seen marching against tiny Israel, demanding serial 2-states in Palestine – the land allocated for the Jews in the Balfour, even calling a 3-state as a 2-state today, so why not in Egypt? After all, serial 2-states in the same land is genocide – which says it all for these Leftys.

    IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO REASON WITH A BRAINWASHED PERSON! They are in a CULT! For twenty plus years, I have attended their meetings and now I get their email alerts and for twenty plus years, and here at FPM for about seven years, that if you want to understand what is happening to Americans, YOU MUST STUDY THE ROLE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY USA! Go to their site right now at CPUSA.ORG and then link on to other sites and you'll see the influence they have AND IT IS VERY POWERFUL BUT HIDDEN IN THE SHADOWS SINCE ANY EXPOSING OF THEM IS TABOO! Go to PWW.ORG and you will see the latest talking points in every issue including the Tucson shooting which they still blame the right and the Tea Party. THEY ARE THE SOWING THE SEEDS OF HATRED AND IF THEIR ARTICLES SOUNDS LIKE DEMOCRAT TALKING POINTS, CONNECT THE DOTS!!!

    Michelle needs a Medal of Honor for exposing the Leftist hate!

    I don't believe that there will ever be a resolution to the conflict between left and right. It has passed the point of no return. The only thing that can be done is for the left to be defeated at the ballot box, in the White House, the Congress, the State governments, and at the local level. They ave to be defeated, and this will require good strategy and tactics.

    And now, anyone on the Left who reads what I just wrote will say, "See! He's painting bullseyes on us!" "He's using military terminology!"

    However, believe me when I tell you that we mean them no physical harm, and they know it. It's merely part of their strategy and tactics …

    A MUST READ: Are Liberals Out of Their Minds? This book is the first systematic analysis of the political madness that now threatens to destroy the West's greatest achievement: the American dream of civilized liberty. In his penetrating analysis, Dr. Rossiter reveals modern liberalism's assaults on: The freedom of adults to make good lives for themselves by cooperating with others, The ability of families to raise children to be self-reliant and mutual, and The morals, rights and laws that protect our freedoms. Modern liberalism's irrationality can only be understood as the product of psychopathology. So extravagant are the patterns of thinking, emoting, behaving and relating that characterize the liberal mind that its relentless protests and demands become understandable only as disorders of the psyche. The Liberal Mind reveals the madness of the modern liberal for what it is: a massive transference neurosis acted out in the world's political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty. Author. Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D

    You folks are all paranoid nuts influenced by the rhetoric of the extreme right.

      Oh yes! It is all a vast right wing conspiracy just like the old post menopausal hag Hillary Clinton said it was!

    Leftist ideology is a pathology since it is not based on reason, logic, need or reality. A psychiatrist who has studied Oboma says he has eight of the ten symptoms of Narcistic Personality Disorder.

    This Jared Loughner fellow clearly held leftwing views. While those views may have not motivated his shooting spree (probably feeling slighted back in 2007 did), the Left using a deranged lefty to smear Sarah Palin and the right is reminiscent of the assasination of Sergie Kirov and Stalin's purges as the aftermath.

    In 1934, Josef Stalin had his Leningrad buddy, Sergie Kirov, killed (according to Robert Conquest) and used Kirov assasination to purge his alleged political rivals and anyone else he took a disliking to. It seemed at one point that every other person was shot or sentenced to Siberia. The Stalinist show trials — clearly frameups — were treated as models of fairness by such people as U.S. ambassador, Joseph Davies.

    Again, a deranged Lefty commits murder — even more than the murderer of Sergie Kirov — and again the Leftwing establishment blames their completely innocent rivals such as Sarah Palin. Today's Leftwing from Krugman, Olbermann, Matthews, Brock; etc., is merely repeating Stalin's playbook with charges just as ridiculous as Stalin leveled against on his targets, Bukharin (Bukharin was supposed to have put glass and nails in large sticks of butter; etc.).

  • Underzog

    (cont from above)

    Whether it be Rahm Emmanuel's government by Reichstag fire; i.e., "never let a good crises go to waste" or Paul Krugman's Stalinist smearing of political opponents a la the Kirov assassination, or American Left tactis are obscenly dirty with obscenly filthy ends (satisfying their powerlust).

    The ends justify the means for America's neo Commies and both are viciously evil!

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don抰 know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
