The atrocity seen in Tucson, Arizona yesterday, January 8, 2011 is the talk of the media, just as we would expect it to be. In what we have come to expect, such tragic events inspire the political left to lash out at political opponents and Sunday’s talk shows are no different.
Barely mentioned are that 6 people, including 9 year-old Christine Green lay dead and a pro-second amendment Democrat fights for her life after being shot through the head by a young man identified by friends as a “liberal” who obviously suffers from some extreme mental derangement.
Without hesitation, we saw pundits begin assigning blame to Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, conservative talk radio and the Tea Party who stood up for our rights last year although there is absolutely no evidence of any connection between the accused shooter, 22 year-old Jared Loughner.
But, since when do activists allow facts to get in the way of their hateful agenda?
Moveon.org, a leftist group that is among the top of the leftist agenda promoters sent out an email just today where they say,
“The tragedy in Tucson has shaken us all to the core. Facts are still coming in, and we all must be careful not to jump to premature conclusions.”The authors of the groups email continue with, “But the terrifying fact is that this act of violence falls into a pattern that has emerged over the past two years in America and in Gabrielle Giffords' district in particular,” even after saying they must not jump to conclusions.
“But in the wake of this disaster one thing is clear: We must put an end to the rhetoric of violence and hate that has exploded in America over the past two years.”
Reading the email we would be left to believe that this sort of rhetoric is something new, happening only after the election of Barack Obama, which they helped accomplish with much hateful rhetoric of their own. Also ignored by Moveon.org was 8 years of Death Threats Against President Bush at Protests Ignored for Years.
Subtlety pointing blame again at the conservative right, the email concludes,
“There's reason to believe that this individual may have a mental issue. And I think people who are unbalanced are especially susceptible to vitriol... When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous.”I am only left to ponder just when will they or any of the left-leaning media pundits crying out so loud today apologize or condemn;

Those of you on the political left talk the talk, now it is time for you to walk the walk.
As in most political rhetoric and blame today, if you really wish to ratchet it down, it is your side where it needs to be ratcheted down.
Or, as many of us suspect, this I just one more of your efforts to silence opposition and the fact that 6 people, including a 9 year-old child lay dead and a pro-second amendment Democrat fights for her life after being shot through the head by a young man identified by friends as a ‘liberal’ is just one more tool in your playbook.
The links above are just the tip of the iceberg of the hateful rhetoric and vitriol thrown out daily by leftist media in America against conservatives. This has been ongoing for a lot longer than just the last two years as most who were listening throughout the years of Ronald Reagan's presidency can recall news anchor Sam Donaldson appearing after every speech or appearance of Reagan's on TV telling us what “he really said.”
Have you liberals no sense of decency or shame?
