Leftwing Activist Arrested for Planning Assassination-by-Immolation of Governor Scott Walker:
Media Curiously Uninterested

Political violence is terrible and we must vigorously condemn it where ever we even suspect it; thus is the rule for all those violent-minded Tea Partiers. We must make it clear to them that political violence is unacceptable. And those who don't make that clear -- opinion leaders on the right, for example, who don't condemn the idea of political violence upon command -- are aiding and abetting the violence, encouraging it through their silence, their tacit approval.

So: What then of the Silence of the Left, and the Silence of the Media, on political violence planned by the left? By their own terms they tacitly encourage it.

A man was arrested for planning to throw Molotov cocktails at Scott Walker at a public speech.

A search of the manís apparent Twitter account reveals deep sympathies for Palestinians, support for other liberal and far-left causes, and claims of previous felony charges. Smith has also expressed support for the newest leftist movement, which previous Occupy supporters are beginning to flock to, named "Idle No More." Less than 24 hours before being arrested, Smith stated on Facebook: "I'm in support of the Idle No More Movement."

What is "Idle No More"? Internet references so far are confined to an aboriginal peoples (that is, Indian) movement in Canada, but I'm pretty sure the US version of it means terrorism -- after all, if you are calling your previous protests a type of idleness, what would constitute no longer being idle?

Why, violent protest, of course.

I cannot repeat it strongly enough that the media, and the left, claimed the entire Tea Party and entire Republican Party was complicit in the shooting of Gabriel Giffords for not making it plain enough to a lunatic (who was not a Tea Partier, and in fact was more left-wing than anything else) that violence was unacceptable, thereby encouraging him.

Yet every time we have a left-wing terrorist in the news, the media does its level best to bury the story, and to pointedly not deliver the stemwinding condemnation of political violence they demand from their political opponents.

Again, by their own predicates, this is effectively an endorsement.

MikeyNTH quoted something in the last thread, "Fen's Law," which states that "The left believes none of the things they lecture the rest of us about."

I can only find a few references to that law on the Internet, but it seems to be deserving of greater exposure.
