The wounded were not even at the hospital before the left began its attack on the Tea Party movement.
The leftist sheriff of Pima County was one of the first to start in on the liberal attack. He said, "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. And unfortunately, Arizona I think has become the capital. We have become the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry." This is the same guy who announced he would refuse to enforce SB 1070 (The Arizona Immigration law) because it offended him.
McClatchy Newspapers repeated the standard liberal talking points. They said Conservatives were upset because she supported health care reform and during the debate her office was vandalized. Although no one was ever caught, the liberal media still feels it appropriate to blame this on a conservative.
For the Tea Party movement, we need to get ready because this week, the attack is going to intensify. Despite the fact that his friends from high school have described him as being quite liberal, the media is still going to be pushing the line that this is the fault of the Tea Party movement.
The hotheads on the left have been using Twitter, Facebook and other social media to spout off for the last 24 hours. Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas fired off a tweet saying, “Mission accomplished Sarah Palin.” Hotheads like him will fade. Next week we will see a more serious attack from those who are the masters at the dark arts of media and politics.
This attack has already started and you can see the liberal meme forming. They will say the tone and rhetoric from conservatives and the Tea Party is responsible for this crime. In Politico today, first an unnamed “Republican” (read RINO) Senator said, “tone matters.” Politico then quoted an unnamed Democratic operative who followed the same “tone matters” line, blaming the “overheated rhetoric” for the shooting, then saying Obama should “deftly pin this on the Tea Partiers,” just like Clinton placed the blame for the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
In 1995, Clinton then tried to blame conservative talk radio, especially Rush Limbaugh, for the terrorist bombing. The tactic worked then, backing conservatives off and possibly helping to ensure a second Clinton term.
The line we will see for the next few weeks is going to be that rhetoric and tone of the message from the Tea Party is responsible for this attack. Let’s ignore the fact that this guy was not only nuts, but also a card carrying liberal. The hard left is going to try and silence the Tea Party movement by blaming us for this.
In a decent world, we could all take a moment to mourn for those killed by a liberal lunatic. Political civility is long since dead and the left will not let us do this.
So be it.
The left is coming and will hit us hard on this. We need to push back harder with the simple truth. The shooter was a liberal lunatic. Emphasis on both words.
WE must use this ocassion to prove to everyone that the liberal media has no interest in fairness or honesty.
WE must show that the liberal media is the cause of this because of their dishonest reporting. It is high time we go on offense folks. We are in a fight for our very existance.
Keith, yiou raise a very valid point. Tea party patriots have a history of reacting, responding to the power grab going on in Washington. Would it not be more effective to be proactive in our endeavors? Establish our own agenda of adhering to the constitution; establish,strengthen conservative political activites, engage in community organizing with a focus on supporting individualism (give someone a fish, they will eat today, teach them to fish and they will eat every day), responsibility and accountability.
We are indeed in a fight for existance as is our country as defined by the constitution.
Did you bother to read what the left said yesterday? The wounded were not even to the hospital when the started the attacks. What would you prefer we do? Stick our heads in the sand? Perhaps we should just let the libs shut us up? Maybe you would prefer that. The left is going to use this to blame the Tea Party for the murder. I am not going to let them get away with it and I suggest you wake up and help with the fight.
FYI, it is a war. the left wants to take over our country and destroy the freedoms that we have.
We contact all the reps, and demand that they hold the FBI Director accountable for his words!
The truth has come out that lougher is a leftist nut. And that both libs and conservatives have condemned the lies about us.
It's up to us to call, email, and visit our reps demanding justice.
