Remembering the Tucson Massacre

Legal Insurrection has a great post in memory of the victims and the anniversary of the Arizona Massacre.  He has posted several videos, including the 911 calls, and a 60 minutes documentary on the shooting.

For me, I will never forget the speed with which the corrupt and biased media began their vicious attacks on Sarah Palin and talk radio as somehow causing the actions of one madman, who it later proved out had, if anything, left wing political leanings and never at any time had anything at all to connect him with any conservative politics whatsoever.

I was watching as this false political narrative unfolded in the leftwing media with a speed that it almost had to be pre-planned somehow.

The whole thing culminated in the sickening political rally called a memorial service that was conducted in Tucson.

See previous post where an unnamed democrat said in the Politico that “it should be pinned on the tea party” and how Sean Penn of the obama administration had said earlier that obama needed “an Oklahoma City moment” to “reconnect with the people.”  https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/01/11/is-arizona-massacre-obamas-oklahoma-city-moment/

“Memorial” service previous post:  https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/01/13/memorial-service-or-political-rally/

A lot of the footage of the media coverages has been scrubbed from the internet, evidence that they knew what they were doing.

In fact, the scrubbing of the internet began almost immediately, but a few screen shots remain due to the swift action of some who saw it coming, that proves it was the left that had actually targeted Gabrielle Giffords for political destruction, and by name up close and personal, because even though she is a democrat was not liberal enough for them.  (They are always doing what they accuse others of).

See previous post:  https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/01/10/finger-pointing-rampant-in-aftermath-of-arizona-shooting/

Professor Jacobson today writes as follows:

Also remembered will be the reaction from the left-blogosphere and mainstream media, which immediately and falsely attempted to connect Sarah Palin to the shootings.  My post that day, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, included ongoing news updates and copies of Tweets by left-wing bloggers.

…..

By the next day, it was a full blown media frenzy claiming Loughner was “right-wing” and again connecting Palin to the shooting, as detailed in my post, Two Sicknesses On Display in Arizona.

The media was in full attack mode on Palin, demanding that she speak out sooner than she did, and then when she did speak out about the shootings, and used the term “blood libel,” it set off even more vigorous attacks on her.

Some on the right, such as David Frum, also used the shooting as an excuse to go after Palin.  Here are my posts on the “blood libel” issue:

I summed up my feelings in the post We Just Witnessed The Media’s Test Run To Re-Elect Barack Obama, which was read on air in full by Rush Limbaugh.

The attempt to politicize the shooting in many ways overwhelmed the memory of the victims.  And that was another tragedy.

Further investigation revealed the Loughner lived in a non-political paranoid delusional world, and to the extent he ever expressed political leanings, they were not “right-wing.”  Loughner eventually would be declared mentally incompetent to stand trial, and remains in psychiatric custody.

The whole thing is a case study in a media hit job, and in the end, the American people did not believe them. https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/01/12/new-cbs-poll-most-americans-dont-believe-the-media-lies/

They tried hard though, they tried really hard.   Anybody who wants a good look at how the media, supposed to be a watchdog, is actually a left wing propoganda machine, just follow this one incident.  It goes far further than mere bias.

And it continues as is evidenced by the ABC debate last night.

How do you like that NEW TONE?

I am observing this with my mouth open.  We are seeing and hearing the entire democratic regime go off the rails.  But democrats are always emboldened because they know the liberal media will cover for them.  But not only cover for them, they participate with them as though they all got together and decided the word(s) they would use.

Quotes from Lawmakers:  http://dailycaller.com/2011/08/03/hostage-metaphor-is-liberal-commentators-new-talking-point/2/

It is bad enough when people who are not in government name call and attack those who disagree with their view of the world, but when democrat members of congress can’t quit saying hostage, hostage, hostage, not only in press conferences but actually on the floor of the Senate and House, it just shows their lack of respect and ignorance.  It also shows they have no tolerance for ideas other than their own.

Bigot:  A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs.

And all because the American People sent to Washington some duly elected House and Senate members who can’t be bought and are not playing the Washington game, who will address the awful state of affairs our country is in.  

It’s a little ironic that this is taking place around the time Gabby Gifford made her first appearance back in Washington after being shot in the head.  Even the president has been talking about republicans “holding a gun to the heads of Americans” only months after he lectured on the subject of civility in Tuscon.  And remember all that silliness about the republicans sitting with the democrats at the state of the union (which was designed solely for the purpose of the visual of a lot more republicans than demos in congress). https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/01/15/sit-together-never/ and https://bellalu0.wordpress.com/2011/01/25/children-are-running-the-country/

If violent rhetoric actually causes violence, then there will be a massive amount of violence that comes from the way these democrats are speaking and reacting.

I really think this is coming across as disgusting to voters and there’s going be a great “clean out” in Washington come 2012 even greater than 2010.

America has got to get rid of these entrenched politicians like Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, and Steny Hoyer, et al. 

They are going to eat these words they are spewing.
