The prospect of American citizens using freedom of speech and protest to derail the Left is too much for the Statist crowd.
Moonbat Mike Malloy calls for the deaths of Limbaugh, O’Reilly, and Beck.
Hat Tip to Brain Maloney at Radio Equalizer.
MALLOY (31:30): It took these filthy Republicans about 48 hours- 72 hours to come up with the ‘oh, yeah, well, you know, we’re getting bad phone calls too, yes we are.
And then this John Boner, this John Boner [sic] these guys created this. they created this atmosphere, they did it because Limbaugh and Beck told them to!
MALLOY (36:25): Well, keep it up boys, just keep it up, um except for one thing: you rat bastards are going to cause another Murrah federal building explosion, you are. And then – what is Beck – maybe at that point Beck will do the honorable thing and blow his brains out.
Maybe at that point, Limbaugh will do the honorable thing and just gobble up enough – enough Viagra that he becomes absolutely rigid and keels over dead.
Maybe then O’Reilly will just drink a vat of the poison he spews out on America every night and choke to death! Because that’s what’s gonna to happen, that’s what they are pushing these right-wing, nut case, fringe, militia jerk-wads to doing!
Leftwingnutjob cartoonist portrays American patriots as ‘racist lynch mob’.
Editorial cartoonist Milt Priggee posted an illustration on MSNBC.com’s resident cartoonist, Daryl Cagle’s blog.
Hat Tip to Unequal Time.
……Priggee’s rough-edged scrawling depicts a mob of people holding vitriolic signs and standing around a tree on which the words “Health Care Reform” are written. From the sturdiest branch of the tree hangs a noose, the rope held by a man who says, “Well – if this is Waterloo… where’s the nigger?”
(The link to the cartoon in question is at the Unequal Time website)
The icons and language are effective because Priggee’s purpose is to malign a group that threatens to derail the agenda of the American Left. The mob is how the Left sees tea partiers, or at least how they want the uninformed public to see them. Tea partiers, having rallied around opposition to healthcare, might just want to kill the president while they’re at it, the cartoon clearly implies.
I do not claim to be a tea partier, but I did attend tea party rallies over the last year as a journalist and a concerned citizen. I never saw anything that even approached the kind of racism being alleged in a current wave of reporting by the mainstream media, a phenomenon not unlike passing vicious notes in middle school. In fact, one of my favorite photos from the tea parties is the one below in which an Asian-American man proudly and enthusiastically paced through a crowd of nearly one thousand in Bellevue, Wash., carrying two masts with historic protest flags, and the American flag raised higher than all others.
……The thing is, this isn’t the first time that Priggee’s particular brand of artistic offense has caused a stir. The people of Western Washington still remember what happened on the day after Thanksgiving 2009 when Maurice Clemmons walked into a coffee shop in Lakewood, Washington and brutally gunned down four police officers where they sat. Priggee’s first visual comment was an image of four bodies, laying lifeless on a café floor, with blood spattered everywhere. Written on the backs of the four corpses were “Huckabee’s Presidential Future,” “Arkansas Parole System,” “Pierce County Bail System,” and “…If Only They Were Armed NRA Mentality.” A more brazen and disgusting example of a man using the tragic deaths of others as a convenient billboard on which to make a political statement is hard to find.
Michelle Malkin has a sampling of leftwing thuggery and the MSM slander campaign.
The MSM never takes a break from whitewashing leftist intolerance, death threats, and extremism — and engaging in selective reporting (or rather, non-reporting) of the long history of leftists’ manufacturing of hatred for political gain. My syndicated column fills in the missing context. In related developments, Glenn Reynolds takes a look at a new dubious report of rock-throwing. Erick Erickson shreds Josh Marshall’s specious incitement accusations. Patterico reports on the latest Twitter death threats against the Palin family. (Here’s a reminder about the one a Toronto Star columnist posted about me, which was laughed off by her editor and ignored by her colleagues). Here’s Mary Katharine Ham’s reminder that 7 of the 10 violent incidents during the summer town hall protests were brought to you by Obama-bots and union thugs. And in case you need a quick refresher on the routine liberal ugliness that will never be decried by the civility police, see here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here. For starters. See also: Unhinged.
……If you can’t stand the heat, manufacture a hate crime epidemic.
As November draws closer, and the Tea Party gains more momentum, the leftwing hate campaign will increase in proportion. Bring it, Malloy. We won’t back down.
