The Left’s “Ends Justifies The Means” Fakery

As a general rule, liberals in the mainstream media and blogosphere will, without the slightest hesitation, pass on stories about conservatives that they know are full of untruths.

However, the Left has now gone a step beyond their habitual dishonesty of the last few years. They’re now faking hate crimes and lying about their identity in an effort to openly deceive the American public.

Just look at the incidents that have occurred in the last month:

Fake hate crime alert: Leftists vandalize Denver Democrat HQ; Dems smeared Obamacare foes

….A 24-year-old arrested this morning on suspicion of smashing 11 windows at Colorado Democratic Party headquarters tried to conceal his identity while allegedly committing the crime, according to police descriptions.

…While Schwenkler does not appear in the state’s voter registration database, a person by that name in November 2008 received $500 from a political 527 committee called Colorado Citizens Coalition for “communications,” according to campaign finance disclosures.

The accountant for the 527 appears to be the same woman who handles the books for many other Democratic-leaning political committees.

A Maurice Schwenkler also signed an online 2005 petition to free anti-war Christian protesters who were captured in Iraq.

…Another non-surprise: Schwenkler was paid by the SEIU-related front group CCC, according to Colorado blogger El Presidente.

I was reading the Chron’s piece about Sheila Jackson Lee’s town hall, when something caught my eye:

One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee’s district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.

“I don’t know what there is in the bill that creates such panic,” she said.

In this video, Mayer claims to be a general practitioner, eliciting applause and even a hug from Queen Sheila:

I’m not sure why, but something didn’t smell right. So my colleagues and I did a little digging, and wouldn’t you know it? Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor.

But she is an Obama campaign volunteer.

Now, bloggers have raised questions about a left-wing activist who turned up at Barney Frank’s raucous town hall.

She’s Dr. Sheila Leavitt, identified in press reports as a “physician from Newton (MA).”

But the folks at AR15.com can’t find anyone licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts under the name “Sheila Leavitt.”

Kate at Small Dead Animals does the Googling the rest of the MSM won’t do and finds Leavitt’s trail of nutty, anti-Bush, anti-war activism.
Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit and Steven at Buck’s Right have more.

At Buck’s Right, a commenter who says he is Leavitt’s 16-year-old son says his mom did go to medical school — but “stopped actively practicing medicine 26 some odd years ago” to raise four children.

Update: It looks like Leavitt was channeling her husband’s persona. He’s a bona fide doctor currently practicing in Boston…

Obama Plant

Note the black man holding up the poster. This screenshot was used in reports by the MSM who painted the protesters as Nazis. Here’s the thing, though – that black man is a Dingell supporter! Last Friday, Frank Beckmann on his show broadcast on WJR 760 AM interviewed an eyewitness that said not only were union thugs let in through a side door before anyone else was let into the venue, but that he clearly saw from his vantage point that very Obama as Hitler poster in that back hallway after the union thugs took their seats. The interview was around 11:00am, but WJR chose not to post that audio (they only tend to select one or two clips a day to post). I thought it would have been bigger news, and needed more than just that to write a post, albeit an audio clip would have partially sufficed. In any case, I’ve been scouring YouTube and the web for more info, and have finally found some. Here is one account that was posted Monday over at FreeRepublic:

A couple that were at Dingals TH meeting said there was a black man outside with a sign comparing Obama the Adolf Hitler. After the meeting ended and when everyone was leaving this same man was handing out Dingal campaign flyers.

This sort of fakery is nothing new in politics. People on both sides have engaged in previously. Back in 2004, Kerry supporter Moby was encouraging this sort of fakery,

“No one’s talking about how to keep the other side home on Election Day. It’s a lot easier than you think and it doesn’t cost that much. This election can be won by 200,000 votes. You target (Bush’s) natural constituencies. For example, you can go on all the pro-life chat rooms and say you’re an outraged right-wing voter and that you know that George Bush drove an ex-girlfriend to an abortion clinic and paid for her to get an abortion.”

Then, from the Right, there was Ashley Todd back in October of last year,

Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter “B” in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.

…This afternoon, a Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Todd confessed to making up the story.

The commander added that Todd will face charges; but police have not commented on what those charges will be.

It’s worth noting, however, that there was more condemnation of Ashley Todd on the Right than there was from the Left for all of these fakers combined.

This acceptance of “anything goes,” “the ends justifies the means” politics by the Left is extremely dangerous. For democracy to work, there has to be a certain level of respect for the law, respect for the will of the people, and a fundamental level of decency. When you have one of the two major political parties in this country that is turning a blind eye to this sort of abuse, it is bound to get worse and spur retaliation. No matter how much the Left despises the Right or how stupid they think the American people are, they have got to be willing to draw a line in the sand and say, “We’re not sinking any further than this.” We have yet to hit that line apparently and the country will suffer for it over the long run.
