Establishment Media Demonizes Tea Party and Constitutionalists After Giffords Shooting
Get ready for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to be used in a serious way against the Tea Party movement. MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the Mockingbird media are now attempting to portray millions of Americans as violence prone anti-government radicals.
In the hours following the shooting liberal bloggers blamed Sarah Palin’s mid-term election rhetoric for the Gifford shooting. Palin’s campaign organization, SarahPac, posted an ad targeting Democrat Giffords for defeat during the election. The liberal blogosphere is directly accusing Palin of stoking hatred against the Arizona Congresswoman that led to the shooting in a Tucson parking lot.
Daily Kos and FireDogLake have taken up the charge and are blaming Palin directly. Sarah Palin is not an anti-government radical – she is part of the establishment Republican party and to accuse her of calling for the assassination of Gifford is ludicrous.
The word “target” is a well established part of the Democrat-Republican political lexicon.
Arizona Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva denounced what he describes as a political environment poisoned by “anger, hatred, and division.” Grijalva blamed the Tea Party movement: “[When] you stoke these flames, and you go to public meetings and you scream at the elected officials, you threaten them – you make us expendable you make us part of the cannon fodder. For a while, you’ve been feeding this hatred, this division… you feed it, you encourage it…. Something’s going to happen. People are feeding this monster…. Some of the extreme right wing has made demonization of elected officials their priority.”
In other words when citizens victimized by a predatory and arrogant government angrily confront their so-called representatives, it is tantamount of calling for violence and assassination.
Editor’s Note MWFH’s: Jared Loughner is not a Teaparty advocate, nor a patriot. He is just an insane individual lost in his own reality as depicted in his bizarre video he himself created.
