Odious Media Keeps Blaming “Tea Party” for leftist insanity of Jared Loughner

[ It’s all over the (mainstream) news – as the liberal establishment stupidly blames “right wing” conservatives for the carnage done by one of their own… What breathtaking hypocrisy, esp. since it is now well-known Loughner was a far-left fruitcake — another “poster child” of the lunatic left.   How’s that for the kettle calling the pot black? ]


Washington Post Editorial Cartoon Blames Tea Party for Shooting

Posted on January 10, 2011 by Rusty Weiss

Well, it looks like the Washington Post just couldn’t help themselves. They couldn’t allow a piece titled, Stop Blaming the Tea Party for the Arizona Tragedy, to stand on it’s own merit. They had to subtely inject a political cartoon into the op-ed piece by Marc A. Thiessen, that has identified the true reason that Jared Loughner shot and killed six people over the weekend (h/t Tabitha Hale).

    The Left, Not the Right, Owns Political Violence
    By Michael Filozof

    It took less than 24 hours for the political left to seize upon the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people on Saturday to blame the political right for the shooting.

    Perhaps the most egregious example came from Paul Krugman of the New York Times, who wrote, “We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was.” (The newspaper that published plagiarized and fabricated accounts of the “D.C. sniper” by affirmative-action hire Jayson Blair in 2003 is still publishing unsubstantiated suppositions without “proof,” eh?)

    “[Giffords’] father says that ‘the whole Tea Party’ was her enemy,” continued Krugman. “And yes, she was on Sarah Palin’s infamous ‘crosshairs’ list.” As if that was not enough, Krugman went on to invoke the specter of Tim McVeigh.

    Well, we do have some proof now, and it’s clear that the shooter was in no way connected to the Tea Party, the Republican Party, or any other movement on the political right. Law enforcement officials have revealed that suspect Jared Loughner was rejected by the Army and kicked out of college. He appeared to have mental health issues, and he was a reader of The Communist Manifesto.

    But since Krugman and the other members of the leftist chattering classes have brought up the subject of politically inspired violence, maybe we ought to remind them of the left’s protracted association with political violence.
