ARIZONA SHOOTING: How the Left Falsely Accused Conservatives (videos)

Posted by FactReal on January 16, 2011

THE LEFT = MERCHANTS OF HATE, LIBEL, MALICE
This past week, the Left (mainstream media and Democrats) decided to exploit the Tucson massacre to destroy those whom they hate and to advance their political agenda. They let lose the dogs of their own hellish madness to link Conservatives or the Tea Party to the violent act. Within hours of the shooting, there were reports indicating that the shooter might be insane. The Left decided to ignore the facts. They continued with their witch-hunt and pushed their narrative to re-write the facts. They blamed political rhetoric (of course, from the Right). More facts were being discovered indicating the shooter, Jared Loughner, was not a Tea Partier, but actually a registered independent, who didn’t vote in the crucial 2010 election, and who didn’t watch TV or listen to political radio. Friends claimed that Loughner was a liberal pothead influenced by the anti-religion, anti-Capitalist movie “The Zeitgeist”. There was no evidence that political rhetoric from the Right had contributed to the shooting. Liberals were not deterred – they were determined to obtain a political advantage out of the tragedy.

The Left saw an opportunity to further exploit the tragedy by attacking the First and Second Amendments. They re-directed the national discourse from repealing Obamacare and cutting government waste to gun control and censorship. Besides advancing their repressive agenda, liberals are trying to tacitly perpetuate the myth that the shooter was a right-wing extremist and not a demented person. On top of that, leftists are now pontificating about civility and bi-partisanship. These merchants of hate want Americans to forget their vitriolic past against Bush or against anyone who disagrees with them. They have no shame! They want to be our “Civility Police” and control our behavior and our speech. One question remains: How many people are going to fall for these tricks from the Left?

Here is just a sampling of how liberals blamed Conservatives for the Tucson shooting without any evidence:

ARIZONA VICTIM MAKES DEATH THREAT TO TEA PARTY LEADER

Posted by FactReal on January 15, 2011

KGUN9 News (Hat tip: GatewayPundit):

Toward the end of the town hall meeting [being taped for an ABC-TV special] Saturday morning, one of the shooting victims, J. Eric Fuller, took exception to comments by two of the speakers: Ariz. state Rep. Terri Proud, a Dist. 26 Republican, and Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries.

According to sheriff’s deputies at the scene, Fuller took a photo of Humphries and said, “You’re Dead.”

Deputies immediately escorted Fuller from the room.

Pima County Sheriff’s spokesman Jason Ogan said later Saturday that Fuller has been charged with threats and intimidation and he also will be charged with disorderly conduct.

Eric Fuller’s comments after the Tucson shooting:
Eric Fuller said in an interview with leftist Democracy NOW! (1/14/2011):

“It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target. Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls. There was a little girl named Christina Green, 9-years old, who is one of the deceased.”

Eric Fuller to leftist Media Matters: (1/14/2011)

“I would put Sarah Palin in first place there. I think, really, she should be incarcerated for treason for advocating assassinating public officials.”

SARAH PALIN’S & DEMOCRATS’ MAPS WITH CROSSHAIRS, TARGETS, BULLSEYES

Posted by FactReal on January 11, 2011

MILITARY METAPHORS IN AMERICAN POLITICS ARE NOT NEW
Liberals’ hypocrisy is only matched by their malice. They are using the Arizona tragedy to advance their agenda. The liberal media and Democrats claim that warlike metaphors used by Sarah Palin and other conservatives incite violence like the Saturday’s shooting in Tucson, Arizona. But these leftists intentionally fail to mention that both parties use military analogies and warfare metaphors in political campaigns and debates, e.g., “being in the crosshairs”, “bull’s-eye” map, “targeted districts”, “battleground states”, “targeting for defeat”, “air war”, “campaign”, etc. Who can forget “Clinton’s War Room” or “Obama’s War Room” referring to their campaign centers.

Caustic rhetoric and imagery are a tradition in American politics:
- John Adams called Alexander Hamilton “the bastard brat of a Scotch peddler.”
- Lyndon Johnson was regularly hanged in effigy.
- George Washington was sarcastically called “Saint Washington,” accused of overdrawing his salary, and compared to Nero and “a common pickpocket.”
- Andrew Jackson was regularly called “King Andrew” and accused of seeking to establish a monarchy.
- Abraham Lincoln, in an 1863 political cartoon, was depicted as a monkey handing the Emancipation Proclamation to a minstrel-show stereotype of a black man.

Saul Alinsky (Obama’s hero) and his Machiavellian book Rules for Radicals is full of warfare metaphors:
- Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
- You can miss the target by shooting too high as well as too low.
- Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.
- Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.
- The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

PALIN’S MAP with Cross Hairs Symbols
FROM SARAH PALIN’S FACEBOOK PAGE
The text accompanying the map is clearly about elections. The “cross hairs” map was part of Palin’s “Take Back the 20″ campaign in the 2010 elections, in which she urged Americans to vote out of office 20 Democrats who voted in favor of ObamaCare.

DEMOCRATS’ MAPS with Bullseyes/Targets Symbols
FROM THE DEMOCRAT LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE:
(http://www.dlc.org/ndol_ci.cfm?contentid=253055&kaid=127&subid=171)

FROM THE DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN COMMITTEE (DCCC) – Recovery for America:
The DCCC has been deleting their “TARGETED Republican” map, but here is an Archived version.
(The original links: http://www.dccc.org/content/recovery,
http://dccc.org/blog/archives/dccc_announces_12_house_republicans_targeted_in_major_grassroots_campaign/)

The DCCC announcement of their “TARGETED Republicans” map stated they were “targeting Republicans who opposed President Obama’s economic recovery bill.” “We will hold accountable those Republicans who continue to vote in lockstep against President Obama’s economic recovery plan for the American people…The site includes an interactive map that illustrates the job creation and tax cuts by state, information about targeted Republicans…”
(http://dccc.org/newsroom/entry/dccc_announces_12_house_republicans_targeted_in_major_grassroots_campaign/)

Each red target represents a “Targeted Republican” like these ones:
