Wonder what you would find if you frisked the anti-Koch brothers protest in Palm Spring, CA last weekend?
Answer: Leftist protesters calling for the deaths of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Fox News executives, and Glenn Beck.
This is absolutely pathetic and disgusting. It is interesting that the mainstream media has no problem with blaming famous conservatives (e.g. Sarah Palin) and the Tea Party for the tragic shooting in Tucson, Arizona. Meanwhile, they blatantly ignore the actual hatred being spewed from individuals on the left.
So much for that new tone of “civility”.
Oddly enough, these leftist idiots were out in the California sunshine protesting Charles and David Koch for being conservative and rich. Big Government points out the protesters’ ignorance and hypocrisy:
Unfortunately several “haves” have missed the memo that you’re not to be both rich and conservative at the same time, and that bankrolling your pet causes is an extra no-no if you’re conservative—thus exempting left-wing billionaire philanthropists George Soros (from whom Common Cause has received $2 million over the past eight years) Peter Lewis, John Doerr, Julian Robertson, Nicolas Berggruen, and many others from being yelled at too.
At the morning panel event featuring UCI Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, activist Jim Hightower, Center for American Progress journalist and “Koch Brothers expert” Lee Fang, California Nurses Association co-president DeAnn McEwan, and President Obama’s former green jobs czar Van Jones, we were forewarned of the impending demise of both the environment and democracy at the hands of corporate lobbyists and their government shills.
There was eerily no mention of GE, AEP, Goldmann Sachs, Pfizer, Aetna, Alcoa, Xerox, Google, Motorola, IBM, or several other corporate giants who profit at taxpayer expense via their K Street connections to the Obama White House as well as the very economic and regulatory policies they lobby that these Common Cause panelists commonly endorse. But I’m sure that’s only because no one wanted to point out the obvious. Right?
It is sad that these people can’t argue the issues without resorting to demonization, racist remarks, and death threats. They should all be ashamed of themselves.
As for the mainstream media, the conservative blogosphere is still waiting for you to report this vitriolic hatred. After all, you are fair and balanced right?
*UPDATE* – February 7, 2011 – 10:02 AM.
Not even the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will defend Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. The Daily Caller reports:
The NAACP won’t directly address the racism displayed by progressive protesters outside a summit hosted by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch at the end of January in Palm Springs, Calif., but the organization did call for an end to all “vitriolic language.”
In response to The Daily Caller’s request for comment on a video showing progressive protesters calling for somebody to “string up” African American Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or “send him back into the fields” or “cut off all his toes and feed them to him one-by-one,” NAACP spokesman Hilary Shelton pointed to the organization’s recent resolution calling for a “civil political discourse.”
“Last summer, the NAACP passed a resolution calling for a civil political discourse,” Shelton said in an e-mail to TheDC. “We continue to call on all Americans to abandon vitriolic language. It serves as a distraction from the real issues our society need to address and distorts the challenges we as Americans have to confront to make our nation greater still.”
Shelton would not, however, address the content of the video directly.
