What is it with some on the progressive left?
They’re so desperately trying to connect the dots between the assassination attempt of Representative Giffords, Jared Loughner and the political right like Sarah Palin, Michael Bachman, Tea Party Patriots, Rush and Fox News opinion shows and conservatives, for their so called ‘hate speech’.
Let’s look at these ‘dots’, shall we?
Dot 1: Rep Giffords: Here we have an elected official who was out pounding the pavement, and talking with her constituency about todays everyday issues. She was, at one point, a Republican, but changed parties just a few years ago. Fine, great, no problem. She is considered a Blue Dog Dem. Most folks on the right tend to agree with some of a Blue Dogs opinions and principles. So no real problem there.
Dot 2: Political Right: You then have the political right, who by most accounts, again, have no real political issue with Representative Giffords. Maybe her vote on Obamacare, and other intrusive policy. But for the most part they can work with her. Nothing, from this bloggers standpoint, have I seen any vile attacks that could be even remotely considered ‘hate speech’ lobbed towards Rep Giffords from the conservative right.
Dot 3: Jared Loughner : Here you have an individual who is deranged in some form or another, and as Charles Krauthammer put it last night, ‘He, by all accounts of his behavior brought forth to this day, is a classic Paranoid Sycophantic.’ By the way, Krauthammer, is a license psychologist. It has been reported by many who know, or have known Jared that he holds no political views and also is a registered independent that dabbles in devil-worshipper in some form, along with being Anti-Flag / Anti-Global economy. And at this point there is NO proof he read anything from Sarah, Rush, Sean, Bill, me, etc.. or ANYONE.
So three dots. 1 & 2 that connect, 1 and 3 that have connected, but no connection of all 3.
So what could this be that the progressive left is up to?
Could only be what Bunni at Amuzing Bunni commented on her blog yesterday. “liberal smear machine”
Liberal Smear Machine is a full-scale demonization campaign against conservatives, free speech, and the Second Amendment. Many have jumped on the bandwagon to silence the likes of Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck.
And if you are conservative, you’re next.
As I see it, it is an attempt by the progressive left to triangulate this incident in hopes to win the debate the progressives have come to realize they are losing with the American people.
Many of my conservative blogger friends have chosen not to post on this whole situation with Rep Giffords shooting and the progressive smear campaign against conservatism.
Why? I don’t know. And that’s OK, I have chosen to fight back, indirectly on their behalf.
