Rush: The Left's Embarrassment
Well, not really. And yet I am still agog at the brazenness of the left's tactics in the aftermath of what should be something - for God's sake - anything else but what they have tried to make of it.
Here's a partial list of some of the incidents the left has tried to pin on conservatives. The Columbine shooters. The 1995 Oklahoma City bombing (specifically they tried to blame me for that). The DC sniper. The New York City Times Square car bomb attempt. They tried to blame that on some Tea Partier angry at the health law, then we find out that was radical Islamists. The February 2010 IRS plane attack in San Antonio. Remember that? It had to be an anti-government clown that flew that plane into the IRS office, had to be. The Pentagon subway shooter. The Fort Hood attack. The Discovery Channel hostage taker. And this guy [John Patrick] Bedell who went into the Pentagon and wanted to shoot these people up. This guy, by the way, is a dead ringer for Loughner. Amy Bishop who shot her colleagues at that Alabama college.
The list goes on and on and on. They are countless. The list actually is never ending of incidents like this where the media is damn certain, damn well certain they can give Obama his OKC bombing. They can give a Democrat president some kind of massive murder or disaster caused by conservatives. That remains the number one effort. They sit around and they wait for these events to happen, hoping and praying that what they know are lies -- what they know are false allegations, nonexistent associations -- can somehow be made to be believed by the public at large. How come it took the media so long to discover that there is an altar in the Loughner backyard? This kid was into the occult. Was there God in this guy's life? The kid was evil. He was insane. Was God in his life? You can't ask that, I guess. A media army has been camped out in Arizona for two solid days. They didn't want to report that there is an altar with a skull devoted to all kinds of occult, odd things in this kid's backyard because that would undercut their message that this was a Tea Party-type guy. So they can't report some things here that be absolutely true, so hell-bent are they on perpetuating a fraud. It really is embarrassing. It's even beneath them.
But they want to shut down dissent, and today they see Jared Loughner's insanity, and the tragedy it has wrought, as the means to that end. And that right there is the biggest threat America faces today.
