Foment This

The tired cries of foul concerning allegedly overheated rhetoric in opposition to the president’s agenda are so pathetic that in sensible times they wouldn’t be worth the effort to refute.

But these are clearly not sensible times. Thus what follows, which is based on items in an e-mail whose links check out, is necessary (with some editing and clean-up by yours truly):

Recent violence/threats against conservatives and others for their beliefs and/or societal roles:
- Anti-abortion Protester Shot Dead
- Military recruiter Shot Dead
- Pentagon Shooter: 911 Truther, Anti-Bush Loon & Registered Democrat
- Leftist Issues Death Threats to Palin & Family
- Leftist Death Threats Against Bush Link includes death threats on network TV and in award-winning plays. For extra added fun: a death threat issued by a Nobel Peace Prize laureate is documented.

Leftist Hate Crime Hoaxes:
- Here
- Here
- Here
- Here

Other threats and intemperance:
- Leftist Throws Tomatoes at Palin Of course, being a leftist, he couldn’t aim for sh*t & hit a cop instead.
- Montel Williams hopes for a violent death for Michelle Bachmann
- Vandals Strike Military Recruiting Center
- Leftists Attack UC Berkeley Chancellor’s Home

Leftists Vandalize Churches:
- Here
- And Harass Christians
- Even the NY Times Realizes it
- Leftists Bully an Old Woman over her Prop. 8 Contribution
- “Burn their f—ing churches to the ground, and then tax the charred timbers,”

Then there are the peace & love leftists who were going to use their peaceful molotov cocktails at the Republican National Convention (also noted at Powerline over the weekend).

We’ve got your Bush-as-Nazi here.

And, of course, when gov’t worker Bill Sparkman turned up dead with the word “FED” written on his chest, the MSM made the immediate assumption that it was anti-gov’t conservatives who murdered him. The guy killed himself. But he wanted to make it look like a homicide so his son could collect on his life insurance policy. It would have worked if it was the MSM and lefty bloggers investigating his death. Fortunately, the police aren’t as bigoted and let the evidence do the talking (Yours truly noted that the AP and others have never retracted their original reports — Ed.)

Over the weekend, Glen Reynolds did a great job mimicking a “hate-filled eliminationist rhetoric” theme

- Along with a small sampling of the double-standard two-step

- Ooooh, and some leftists are angry at Rep. Jean Schmidt, so they left a “polite” voice mail outlining their disagreements with her (along with threats of gun violence).

Now we have wire reports of use of the N-word reported despite total lack of evidence in the presence of numerous cameras, taping devices, and microphones, and a bogus claim of deliberate spitting that wasn’t (*). Spare me.


(*) – If you want real, documented examples of spitting, which loony lefties still deny, go here. Remember that the loons’ standard of proof over Vietnam-era spitting was and apparently still is photographic evidence from an era when the only people who had video cameras rolling were in the press. Numerous testimonials from independent events and unrelated people mean nothing to deniers.



  1. I don’t even care what the left says anymore, they’ve been so involved in so many ugly incidents that their crying over “tone” means nothing. I’ve said it before, if you want to know what you aren’t and what they are, listen to what the left calls you.
