Liberal Violence & Incivility Watch: A Single Day’s Headlines

Liberals claim to be perpetually outraged by what they say is dangerous rhetoric from conservatives. However, it’s hard to take them seriously when they have nothing to say about stories like this all breaking in a single day,

The head of one of the nation’s most powerful labor unions did not condemn the violent rhetoric in placards and signs held by union supporters demonstrating in Wisconsin despite two direct attempts Sunday to get him on the record declaring them inappropriate.

Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan predicted on Sunday that America faces imminent uprisings that mirror those in the Middle East.

“What you are looking at in Tunisia, in Egypt … Libya, in Bahrain … what you see happening there … you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door,” Farrakhan said in a booming voice, thousands of followers cheering in his wake.

The online activist group “anonymous,” which has used coordinated denial of service attacks — a crude but effective Internet weapon — to temporary disable sites belonging to foes ranging from Scientology to WikiLeaks foes — has turned its firepower on the Koch-backed conservative group Americans for Prosperity, making the group’s site intermittently unavailable tonight.

Fox News Mike Tobin hit by union thugs at Wisconsin capitol Madison — later union goons even threaten to break Tobin’s Neck

All of these stories would be front page news in every paper in America if Tea Partiers or prominent Republicans were involved. Heck, let John Boehner use “job killing” in a sentence or Sarah Palin say, “targeting,” and every liberal in America gets the vapors. But, all the headlines you’re reading above get a pass from those same people?

What does that tell you?

It tells you that all these people talking about civility are really just trying to shut you up. If they really believed what they were saying, they’d be speaking out today. It also tells you that the average member of the political Left has no problem with violent rhetoric, trying to silence their political opponents, or even outright violence against conservatives if they think they can get away with it.

The next time you hear liberals complaining about “violent rhetoric” or how scary those Tea Partiers are supposed to be, just remember the way the Left has behaved over the few weeks, roll your eyes, and tell ’em to shove it crossways.
