The insane rage erupting following the defeat of Prop 8 in California is a perfect example.
Via Michelle Malkin:
Before Election Day, national media handwringers forged a wildly popular narrative: The right was, in the words of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, gripped by “insane rage.” Outbreaks of incivility (some real, but mostly imagined) were proof positive of the extremist takeover of the Republican party. The cluck-cluckers and tut-tutters shook with fear.
In fact, in the wake of campaign 2008 there’s only one angry mob gripped by “insane rage”: left-wing same-sex marriage activists incensed at their defeat in California. Voters there approved Proposition 8, a traditional marriage initiative, by 52 percent to 48 percent.
Instead of introspection and self-criticism, however, the sore losers who opposed Prop. 8 responded with threats, fists and blacklists.
…found on the anti-Prop.8 website “JoeMyGod,” are common across the left-wing blogosphere: “Burn their f—-ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers.”
Come on Krugman, where’s the outrage? THIS is the hate and rage the Left was predicting … and it occurred … by those on YOUR side, the Left.
Thousands of gay-rights demonstrators stood in front of the Mormon temple in Los Angeles shouting “Mormon scum.” The Mormon headquarters in Salt Lake City received threatening letters containing an unidentified powder. Religion-bashing protesters filled with hate decried the “hate” at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif. Vandals defaced the Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Calif., because church members had collected Prop. 8 petitions. One worshiper’s car was keyed with the slogans “Gay sex is love” and “SEX.” Another car’s antenna and windshield wipers were broken.
In Carlsbad, Calif., a man was charged with punching his elderly neighbors over their pro-Prop. 8 signs. In Palm Springs, Calif., a videographer filmed unhinged anti-Prop. 8 marchers who yanked a large cross from the hands of 69-year-old Phyllis Burgess and stomped on it.
And don’t try to tell me that those rioters and haters are a “fringe group.” People who take to the streets and riot are ALWAYS a fringe group. Most people have better things to do, families to feed, jobs to go to. But this is the militant arm of the Democrat party and of the Left in general. This is the spirit that animates it and drives its direction.
This is Krugman if he had the balls.
Corporate honchos, church leaders, and small donors alike are in the same-sex marriage mob’s crosshairs, all unfairly demonized as hate-filled bigots by bona fide hate-filled bigots who have abandoned decency in pursuit of “equal rights.”
Where is the media who was covering front pages with stories of church burnings that never occurred? That’s another branch of the Left that averts its eyes while telling us the latest outrage committed by “Christers.”
Meanwhile, that shrew Kathleen Parker has joined the Krugmans and the rest of the Left in demonizing Christians. Kathleen is putting on the martyr act for getting hate mail. While she poses for the Joan-of- Arc prize the people she reviles as “low brows, gorillas and oogedy-boogedy types” are subject to real physical assault. There is something worse than having an avowed enemy facing you and that’s someone who pretends to be your friend stab you in the back.
