Remember the "climate of hate" that the Left said was responsible for the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords? It turns out that the shooter was a nut who friends identified as Liberal. But that did not stop the Left as they went after the people they love to hate.
- Sarah Palin (for "targeting" Giffords for defeat in the upcoming election) by MSNBC's Keith Olberman, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas, Liberal political consultant and blogger John Aravosis. And, of course, every Lefty driven insane by the Democrats in their war on Conservatives.
- The Tea Party movement
Palin-led tea party movement had normalized a brand of violent rhetoric that stirs up voters. Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who called Arizona “the Mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”
- Talk Radio, Republicans: Paul Krugman accused Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and the entire Republican Party:
“Let me say one thing, because people tend to pooh-pooh this business about all the vitriol that we hear inflaming the American public by people who make a living off of doing that. That may be free speech, but it’s not without consequences.”
....Giffords’ weeping father, who said, when asked if the congresswoman had enemies: “Yeah…the whole Tea Party.”
“You know that Republicans will yell about the evils of partisanship whenever anyone tries to make a connection between the rhetoric of Beck, Limbaugh, etc. and the violence I fear we’re going to see in the months and years ahead,” Krugman wrote on the Times website. “But violent acts are what happen when you create a climate of hate. And it’s long past time for the GOP’s leaders to take a stand against the hate-mongers.”
But let a racist Black Muslim kill a couple of NY city cops after weeks of marches and inflammatory, racist and lying rhetoric encouraged by every political Leftist from Obama to Holder to De Blasio to Al Sharpton, and let that killer give his reasons for murder the deaths of several black criminals, and all the cockroaches who have been egging on these weak minded petty criminals scurry for cover. You can be sure that Olberman, Moulatsis, Dupnik, Krugman and every other Lefty who went after Palin, the Tea Party, talk radio and the GOP are going to deny that their rhetoric hand anything to do with triggering the killer. But their connection to the killer's motives could not be clearer. He gives their rhetoric and issues as the reason for his decision to kill the cops.
What do you get when you provide support for mobs that chant that they want "dead cops,"
What do you get when you tell people to shoot cops? You get what you ask for ...
