You have got to be kidding me. What the hell kind of crap have I been reading for the last 8 years on Kos, HuffPo, and the SFGate comments section? That's the highest order of hypocrisy.
I haven't listened to Limbaugh for almost 15 years and got a few snippets of Beck on YT to get my head around this recent situation. I don't know if I could watch too much of Beck, even if we share some political sentiments. Poplawski linked a YT video of Glenn Beck on Stormfront, and that is enough to blame Glen Beck for him then shooting three cops. The left blogosphere kicks into action, almost as if there was some email chain triggering all the coordinated and compounding viewpoints.
The illogical elephant in the room is that Poplawski was posting on Stormfront, a neo-Nazi associated group. Nazis were leftist/socialists. Just about every lefty idiot at a 'peace' rally or blog associating Nazi with Bush or conservatism seems to forget that. Irony, the gift that keeps on giving.
The irony abounds. For years, the left blogosphere has been blowing hyperinflated rhetoric about Bush/Nazi/Fascist and the taking of rights and government control of security and loss of rights. Any call to put themselves in check results in increased volume of the narrative, meaning then ends justify the means.
Now that the left's idolized savior has ascended to the seat of power, any criticism of their chosen one results in overheated rhetoric about overheated rhetoric critical of their chosen one. Even valid observations about increased government control, socialism, or fascism is lumped together with the most crazed conspiracy theories of Poplawski and Alex Jones. The ends justify the means indeed.
Joel Rosenblatt of Newsbusters couldn't have put it better:
Post facto commentary: Let's be clear what these attacks on folks like Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity are all about -- the left-wing in our nation want to silence ALL opposing voices in the media, and they will do it using all tools at their disposal INCLUDING blaming journalists and political commentators for the criminal behavior of others.
As much as the Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Congress are leading America down the path of irreversible socialism, their minions in the media -- particularly those in the liberal blogosphere -- are doing everything in their power to eliminate opinion not in lock-step with the revolution.
Those who disagree with the direction our nation is heading better be willing to stand up and fight or there will soon come a day when you don't recognize the land you live in.
Be afraid, America. Be very afraid.This statement in whole is very powerful and has much truth to it. I can see now how the Kos minions will use statments such as these, based in objective observation, as evidence of overheated rhetoric that inflames right wing conspiracy theories and inspires the wackos to shoot cops. Very scary times indeed.
Wait, I said it was very scary times. Maybe I'm fomenting right wing conspiracy theories too? I thought the left was all about free speech.
Just a thought: it seems that there's been an uncoordinated effort to turn conservatism into a bad word with negative connotations, much as liberal or liberalism has been. Instead of making liberal a good word, they have taken the easier way out and decided to redefine conservatism. Good luck on that.
