I can't help but ask the question: Why no calls for the left to tone it down? Every time some liberal pundit on the three old stream networks calls for a change in the tone of our political discourse,or for the debate to become more civil,etc,etc,etc what they are really saying is that the Right,and,the Tea Party,and by extension,the Republicans have got to quite down and quit opposing their socialistic agenda!
Well why is it that they seem to be so blind and deaf to the outrages on the left side of the aisle? Take for example the picture at the top of this page. When Bush was President they had no problem with nut cases on the left showing up at protests with signs like this. Could you imagine how tied into knots they would get should someone from the Right be seen carrying a sign like that referring to the "Anointed One"?
Even today the left -and leftist media- advocates violence against republicans consider these examples from Andrew Breitbart's Big Government blog...
"Martin concluded the article with a plea for Obama to emulate the violent tactics of the Prohibition-era Chicago mob boss Al Capone.
Obama’s critics keep blasting him for Chicago-style politics. So, fine. Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let ‘em know that if they aren’t with you, they are against you, and will pay the price.
The Huffington Post followed-up with their own call for gangland violence against Republicans with the publication on February 14 of a column by David Bourgeois with the title, Obama Better Start Breaking Kneecaps.
So much for toning down the rhetoric. The left is more than capable of saying things that-by their standards-could well incite violence. Here is a quote from 2008 in Right Wing News...
"Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, we've been watching intifada in Palestine, we've been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don't have an intifada in this country? Because it seem[s] to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream... giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and we're sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it's about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every-- They're gonna say some Palestinian being too radical -- well, you haven't seen radicalism yet." -- U.C. Berkeley Lecturer Hatem Bazian fires up the crowd at an anti-war rally by calling for an American intifada"This is nothing short of a call for violent revolution against the government. The left has been foaming at tje mouth over the Tea Party just suggesting we might have to have a second "American Revolution" which said revolution is a type of revolution that is a far cry from an "Intifada"!
Here is another glaring example of the hypocrisy of the left on this subject....
"A spoiled child (Bush) is telling us our Social Security isn't safe anymore, so he is going to fix it for us. Well, here's your answer, you ungrateful whelp: [audio sound of 4 gunshots being fired.] Just try it, you little b*stard. [audio of gun being cocked]." -- A "humor bit" from the Randi Rhodes showIt's a wonder some lunatic from the left wasn't inspired by that nonsense to pick up a gun and go after Bush!
These quotes just begin to scratch the surface check out these horribly violent leftist quotes being reported by Townhall.com...
"F*** God D*mned Joe the God D*mned Motherf*cking plumber! I want Motherf*cking Joe the plumber dead." -- Liberal talk show host Charles Karel Bouley on the air.
"..And then there's Rumsfeld who said of Iraq 'We have our good days and our bad days.' We should put this S.O.B. up against a wall and say 'This is one of our bad days' and pull the trigger." -- From a fundraising ad put out by the St. Petersburg Democratic Club
"...In an ideal world, American consumers could be convinced to do the right thing through an appeal to logic with public service messages like the 'What Would Jesus Drive?' TV campaign, but the kind of people who would buy a car that increases the risk to other motorists in an accident can't be reasoned with. They're selfish and stupid. It's unfortunate that drivers must worry that their SUVs are being targeted by insulting stickers and Molotov cocktails, but one thing's for sure: It couldn't be happening to a more deserving group of people." -- Ted Rall winks at ecoterrorism
Yeah the hatred,vitriol,and just down right meanness of the left is actually -in my opinion- unmatched.
So once again,considering these quotes- where in the world are the calls from the left wing media for liberals to tone down their rhetoric?!
