Hmmmm....

Hmmmm...

Hmmm...

In case you had any doubt, yeah, he likes being a dickbag towards "Tea Baggers" at rallies.

I am "hmmm..."-ing this because I'm not prepared to go as far as Gateway Pundit; there is smoke, but not solid evidence of fire.

It is interesting, though.

The media is once again is embargoing stories that undercut their beloved Narrative, that the Tea Party is a clear and present danger to democracy itself, and no one on the left, apparently, ever says a single out-of-line thing or behaves in a violent manner.

For example, check out this Angry White Man cursing out an elderly Holocaust survivor at a Ground Zero Mosque protest.

One of his fellow lefties attempts to restrain him in his hate, and he unabashedly continues, vowing no one has the right to "censor" him.

Will the real face of leftism be revealed? Of course not.

Note his final bon mot regarding the Holocaust survivor -- "Obviously he didn't learn his lesson."

Now, it's not quite fair to say that he's saying Jews should have "learned their lesson" from the Holocaust to remain "in their place." The full quote makes it (reasonably) clear that he means that Jews first and foremost should be concerned about "tolerance" for a religious minority. (I put "tolerance" in quotes; this is his thought, not mine.)

And yet... Is this not, let us say, a touch insensitive? To declare a Holocaust survivor should have "learned his lesson" from the Holocaust?

Particularly since maybe he did "learn his lesson," eh? The lesson of "Never Again"?

And a Jew certainly has reason to be concerned about an Imam who hobnobs with foreign clerics and apparently supports Hamas. As was noted when Mohammad Abbas was revealed to be a Holocaust denier, one commentator said that for Palestine, that did make him a moderate.

See, she said, the awful truth is that in Palestine, if you deny the Holocaust you're a "moderate."

If you're a non-moderate you admit the Holocaust... and endorse it.

Just seems strange to me that we have an awful lot of lefties saying some decidedly angry, insensitive things, but it's only the right that apparently has the standard put upon them that at all times they must speak as measuredly and softly as Jean Luc Picard at a performance of The Mikado.

And this other guy...? This "Ripper McCord"? He's an unperson; the story is an unfact.

MinTruth stylebook guidance is that political-oriented violence can only be committed by the Tea Party/racist right and if it wasn't committed by the Tea Party/racist right then it wasn't committed at all.

And oh, by the way, the guy who flew his plane into the IRS building was an "anti-government" rightwinger, and you know he's a rightwinger because his suicide note contained a condemnation of capitalism and a paean to communism.

And oh, by the way, at a "Peace" rally in 2005 Cindy Sheehan declared "The enemy is the government!" and I don't remember anyone in the MFM being terribly upset by the implications of such an anti-democratic, hateful, violence-charged utterance. And she has, as the MFM decided, "Absolute Moral Authority," so if she says the enemy is the government, then by God, the enemy is he government.
