Rush Limbaugh took to the radio airwaves yesterday to blast the media's response to the horrific shooting in Tucson, Arizona. In a lengthy segment on the topic, he called the media's reaction "utterly, childishly silly, and embarrassing."
Limbaugh went on to speculate that the liberal media will try to use the shooting - and the conservative movement's supposed complicity in it - to silence opposing political views.
Now today it is reported that the Sheriff is blaming Rush directly for the shooting.
It's amazing how all the vitriol rhetoric by our own President Obama is ignored. But then again there has always been a double standard for the liberals and their self justifiable and acceptable hate.
Although you are right, I certainly don't pity the Tea Party or Palin getting caught up in this, and I hope they do. They didn't succeed in blowing up Tom Perrielo's family. If they had, it would be a whole other story, don't you think? And that's just one of the acts of violence committed after the health care law was passed. That's what happens when you tell people that democrats are making death panels and plan to kill your grandma. Or plan to usurp the Constitution and install a socialist government.
If this doesn't stop the Tea Party and the talk show hosts then it is just a matter of time before one of them succeeds in killing someone, or blowing up someone's house, or a Federal building for that matter. The language and tone of leaders have consequences. THIS particular massacre was not caused by the hateful and violent tone of the extreme right, but you should not be surprised--or upset--that it has highlighted it.
Palin, Rush, Hannity, Levin and that's just for starters. Typically I agree with most conservative opinions; they have gone over the top and are beating a dead horse for the sake of publicity.
I see the right defending itself from false allegations by the liberals and thier hand puppet media. Show me someone on the right playing politics with this tragedy in AZ. Post the link please.
You never see right wingers try to make political hay out of nuts with guns: http://messages.finance.yahoo.com/Stocks_%28A_to_Z%29/Stocks_A/threadview?m=tm&bn=17627&tid=402939&mid=402939&tof=-1&rt=1&frt=2&off=1
Hope your shaved hair is growing back. The AT&T message board sincerely hopes FBI profilers don't find a large arsenal next to the computer where all your hate speech originates.
