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/

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).

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.

President Obama honors the deceased, the recovering, the heroes

President Barack Obama in Arizona

…..at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are not talking with each other in a way that wounds.

…..

But what we can’t do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another. As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations…..

I hope the MAINSTREAM media was listening as I am sure they were.  What they did  for three days was to “lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently” and they should apologize to Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, and talk radio, not only apologize but a CORRECTION of the record is in order. Will they do it?  I am not holding my breath.  Corruption never admits it is wrong.

Somebody was kind enough to post the entire speech in the comment section of my previous post.

We should take President Obama’s speech and Sarah Palin’s response to the vicious attacks against her personally and consider what each has said.  The words that have been used since this tragedy truly did WOUND.  They wounded her and they also wounded her supporters.

And we will continue to disagree with the direction our country is taking, we will continue to speak.  We will never compromise our strongly held beliefs and opinions.

IT NEVER should have  happened that accusations were made against innocent people.  Sarah Palin NEVER should have felt she had to defend herself by making her speech.  Her name NEVER should have even come up in the coverage of this case.  The Tea Party and talk radio NEVER should have come up in connection to this case.  It was so wrong and I wish our president had led by coming out early on and ask the media to tamp it down.  He has done that previously, advising us not to jump to conclusions, to wait for the facts.  He should not have sit by and watched his fellow-Americans falsely accused in the manner they were.

The applause and cat calls from the audience were very disrespectful and out of place for a memorial service.  I wonder who was doing that?

P. S.:  And in some quarters, it has not stopped.  Chris Matthews just night before last featured Mark Levin and Michael Savage as TARGETS of his wrath.  Levin (who is a lawyer and a very brilliant man) said last night the very next time he is falsely accused and that his name is smeared he will SUE for libel, he will sue all involved starting with the corporate bosses right on down to the commentator, he will depose them all, and he will not settle.  It will go before a jury.

A commenter at the Washington Post:   “The mainstream media will never again be able to create a narrative that is contrary to the facts. Their day, for the most part, is over. The internet and talk radio, among other things, serve as a kind of modern day Paul Revere sounding the alarm whenever we are fed a load of BS and act as a necessary corrective.”
