The strawman assassination of our free speech

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The vicious attack by a locally well-known Tucson lunatic, Jared Loughner, upon Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and scores of others has brought to light the desperation of Liberal/Progressives in their never-ending quest to destroy the will of the American people.

Before the victims' blood dried in front of the Tucson Safeway, Paul Pathological Krugman, Economic Nobel Award winner, slimed whomever he could think of in conservative media and labeled them responsible for the Arizona blood letting without a scintilla of evidence. Incredibly, he was backed up by Pima County Sherriff, CYA Dupnic who failed to mention his long familiarity with Mr. Loughner and his psychotic history in regard to his unhappiness with his 2007 visit with Gabby. Ya think Dupnic might have got an officer or something out there just in case? Nah!

Within 24 hours of the massacre it was open season by the libiots. They blamed Palin, Rush, Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly and even me as accessories to mass murder.

How dare us right-wing pols, pundits and talk show hosts use those vitriolic words?!

Repeal Obamacare!

Stop the spending!

Protect our borders!

Keep captured al-Qaeda from being tried in NYC!

Prosecute black on white election crime as aggressively as the reverse!

Drill, baby drill!

Stop cap and trade!

Don't sign treaties that leave us vulnerable!

Let people vote union issues in private!

Stop the death panels!

Read the bills before you vote on them!

Give us better airport security by focusing on likely terrorists!

Stop governing by agency rules and executive order! That'll make you shake in your booties.

In doing column research though, I did pick up on some incendiary oratory:

If they bring a knife we bring a gun.

We need to know whose ass to kick.

Get in their face!

I don't want to quell anger, I'M ANGRY!

We will punch back twice as hard!

If (our opponents) win, it'll be hand to hand combat.

There's a lot of testosterone in my marriage --- I just wish some of it were mine

Where I come from (the South Side of Chicago) these were known as fightin' words. All this testosterone talk was attributed to one "commentator," the most powerful person on earth, President Barack Hussein Obama.

I don't recall one conservative from anywhere blaming Mr. Obama or any other progressive for the butchery in Tucson .

Even worse was the treatment of Palin.

You could count the well-trimmed nose hairs as the Washington elites turned up their snouts at Sarah. And that was from heroes Krauthammer and foes Matthews alike. Is that what they teach in those stuffy Ivy League Snobberies? I find it hard to believe how these supposedly brilliant people think, tainted by the geography of the schools they attended and the cocktail parties they imbibe at.

Palin, accused as an accessory to mass murder had no choice but to respond and respond well she did.

You know who agreed with Sarah and others who protested this blood libel? The American people, that's who!

In a recent Rasmussen Poll, 58% of the people surveyed said the Arizona shooting was a random act of violence by an unstable person. Just 28% said the shooting was the result of political anger.

If you stop making hay it could be the last straw

I see the President's memorial speech for what it was: an amazing piece of sophistry, a calculated bashing of the right for what it didn't say and a pass for the irresponsible violent rhetoric of progressive liberals, the MSM and himself.

It's a straw man argument.

Here's why. "Okay (us libs) will tone down the violent language if you righties stop pointing out our bad motives and agree to support our country-destroying policies." I back this up with all the times people were called racist for criticizing any of Obama's policies.

In the meantime, we'll (us libs) continue to shove things like the fairness doctrine, ban on drilling, cap and trade and card check down America's throats or up their other orifices.

Wake me when the left reverses THOSE POLICIES. That's when we'll know Obama and the progressives are serious.

And for those of you who yell profusely that last weeks' memorial service wasn't political, those free T-shirts were somehow inscribed with a phrase on Obama's website, Organizing For America: "Together We Thrive," February 11, 2008. Vat a coincidence!

I'll continue to align with this: "I am sick and tired of people who say if you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic and we should stand up and say we are America and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!" Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Now I can relax and watch the Jets play the Patriots where they never talk trash.
