Remember the shooting at the Family Research Council this week? The media has been working overtime to spin a narrative about the shooting that hides not only the shocking truth about the shooting but to spin the narrative in their favor.
More details have come out about the shooting and you won’t hear about them on the Jurassic media. What are those details and what is the media trying to do?
Friday, on Glenn Beck’s show, he interviewed retired United States Army General Jerry Boykin. Boykin was in the Family Research Council building when the shooting occurred. He saw the shooter right after he was taken down.
While the media was just reporting this as a shooting and the shooter had “Chick-Fil-A” paraphernalia, the truth is much more shocking. According to Boykin, the shooter had 15 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in his backpack and his plan was to go through the building and kill as many people as possible, dropping a Chick-Fil-A bag by the bodies.
Tony Perkins, the President of the Family Research Council on Friday held a news conference where he blamed the far left group, the Southern Poverty Law Center for labeling the FRC and other conservatives as “hate groups.”
The media immediately went into overdrive to denounce the claim. CNN went into a lengthy piece on its website talking about the SPLC. While not a negative word was to be seen about the SPLC, there were negative comments about the FRC and the obligatory mention of a white supremacist that killed six people at a Sikh temple earlier this month.
The rest of the media was mostly silent.
The shooter clearly stated he was motivated by the Family Research Council’s politics in statements he made as soon as he was taken into custody.
While the media has gone overboard to make certain the story of the FRC shooting was minimized, and the causal connection between the Southern Poverty Law Center’s outrageous comments is buried, they have been going just the opposite direction with conservatives.
This weekend marks the end of the Muslim holiday of Ramadan. MSNBC had to rush out with an article about how Mosques are being forced to raise their security levels. Why? Because of the comments conservatives are making about Muslims.
While no one is saying that the attacks are connected, many Muslim leaders and civil rights advocates see common fuel in the anti-Muslim rhetoric that they say has intensified during the current election cycle.
"When the rhetoric gets bad, the hate crimes and attacks go up,” said Ayoub, of ADC. "Unless the rhetoric changes, I feel there will be more happening before the election.
On the list of politicians he says are fueling bigotry is Michele Bachmann, who recently led the call for a federal investigation of senior State Department official Huma Abedin. Bachmann accused Abedin of using her position to influence policy in favor of Egypt’s Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.
The charge outraged many Muslims. Even some of Bachman’s fellow Republicans protested the attack, including Sen. John McCain, who defended Abedin as a "true patriot."
Another politician becoming well known for his persistent warnings about the threat of "homegrown radicals" among the Muslim population is Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., a member of the House Homeland Security Committee.
This is the liberal double standard. They can say anything they want about conservatives and if a far left wing activist does something like shooting one or more people at a conservative think tank, there is no connection.
If a conservative raises legitimate points about someone who may be a foreign agent or about a group that has proven ties to terrorism, even though there is no causal connection to any attacks, the conservatives are still responsible.
We are entering a period of political violence in America directed towards conservatives. For the last three years, the message that has been sent to the far left by the Obama Regime is you will be allowed to get away with violence. Now the violence is escalating.
Fortunately for us, the violent fringe on the left is a very small minority. Unfortunately for us, they are quite willing to use violence and we have not seen the end of it.
The left wing media and the far left establishment are aiding and abetting this violence. The overwhelming majority of Americans oppose not only the far left but also their radical violence.
We conservatives are going to have to fight back. The way we will have to do this is for conservatives to start taking the liberal establishment apart.
This will not happen overnight. When Romney wins this fall, we must get the Romney administration to eliminate the funding the left gets from the government. Then we must start taking apart the other sources of funding for the radical left, including corporate donation and money they get from foundations.
This is going to be a long fight. The left has shown an increasing propensity for violence.
We have two choices. We can surrender or we can do what our forefathers did.
One thing our forefathers never did was surrender to tyranny.
