Wonder what you would find if you frisked the liberal mainstream media over the past few days?
Answer: As Bill O’Reilly points out, the “Merchants of Hate” have been unleashed.
The news coverage over Saturday’s tragic shooting has been one of the lowest moments for the mainstream media and Bill O’Reilly hit the nail on the head last night:
Liberals are furious that their far-left vision is falling apart so they’re using a terrible tragedy, using it, to attack their perceived political enemies. That’s what this is all about – the failure of the far-left agenda.
First of all, those on the left side of the political aisle are the ones who are exploiting this tragic event to feed their own political agenda – period. Are there some conservatives out there using this towards their political advantage? I am sure there are a few, but it is no one with a loud voice within the conservative movement.
Let’s face the facts. When liberal columnists first heard that a Democrat congresswoman was shot, they immediately stormed to their computers to type up their deranged fantasies (e.g. Paul Krugman) that the shooter was some radical right-wing individual who went on a rampage. These types of desperate and despicable attempts to deceive the American public flooded the airwaves, twitter, and other internet news sites just moments after tragedy struck the city of Tucson, Arizona.
Truth is, through the liberal media’s lies and political agenda of criminalizing conservatism, we were unable to fully grasp and grieve over Saturday’s tragic event. Instead, conservatives were forced to go on the defensive.
Unfortunately, instead of focusing on possible ways of uniting the American people around this tragedy, we were (and still are) forced to point out the vicious lies that are being circulated by the powerful left.
We have journalists, celebrities, and public officials going down their recycled political enemies list: Governor Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Rep. Allen West (R-FL), Bill O’Reilly, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Sharron Angle, and plenty more. Some Democrats even had the nerve to toss the United States Constitution on their enemies list!
According the far-left, Governor Palin is responsible for Saturday’s shooting, because her website used a graphic design with (imaginary) “cross-hairs” that represented vulnerable congressional districts. Rep. Bachmann (R-MN) and Sharron Angle are responsible, because of certain political metaphors that they chose to use in the past. The others are responsible, because of their so-called “violent” rhetoric.
Nothing could be further from the truth! It is our job to hold the media responsible.
So if anyone is asking themselves, “Why can’t America just unite as one and put politics aside over this horrendous event?” The answer is clear: The far-left and some in the liberal mainstream media didn’t want us to. Instead, they wanted to prove that they were right along about the Tea Party movement. They desperately want to prove their narrative that the Tea Party is filled with a bunch of loose cannons ready to go off at any second. Once again, they were wrong.
Sadly, it is the left who is The Rack of public and political discourse.
