Hmm… So whatever happened to that so-called “new civility” we needed in America?

The DCist reports:

Paul Craney, the executive director of the D.C. Republican Committee, got quite the surprise when he came into the office today — someone had shot out the windows of the party’s headquarters at 1275 K Street NW with what appeared to be small caliber pellets.

“All I can say is that whoever did it either is targeting glass windows or the D.C. Republican Committee,” said Craney in an email this afternoon. Craney told us that the damage occurred around 1:30 a.m. last night, when the building’s security company left him a message about a glass break — but he didn’t notice the damage until he went and got lunch today, at which point he tweeted about it. Craney said that the headquarters’ neighbors were not hit by any of the projectiles.

Police were contacted by the building’s landlord and the incident is under investigation.

I am so glad that I moved to Washington, D.C. two weeks ago, because it appears we Republicans are being hunted around here, haha.

As Jonah Goldberg – from The National Review – pointed out: If it had been the DNC office that would prove the tea parties are [fill in the blank].”

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 RobertsonNicolas 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.

Shocking…

Wonder what you would find if you frisked some of the Democrat groups out there?

Answer: They are using Saturday’s shooting as a fundraising tool.

This is absolutely appalling. Warner Todd Huston – from Big Government – reports:

An extreme, left-wing Democrat group calling itself 21st Century Democrats has had the gall to send out an email blast using as a fundraising tool Saturday’s criminal shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona. Judge John Roll and four others were killed in the incident, one of them a 9-year-old girl, but these Democrats are ignorant enough to be using this incident to try and squeeze donations from its supporters. Some might think the action of 21st Century Democrats is itself a crime — a crime against decency.

The email blast sent out Sunday morning to its supporters tells members that “we don’t know yet” why Jared Loughner shot Gabrielle Giffords but goes on to lay the blame on Sarah Palin and Gifford’s opponent in the past election for using “violent imagery” in his campaign.

The email goes on to ask members to “join us in sharing your thoughts and prayers to the Congresswoman and her family by visiting our website where we have set up a page for you to do so.” Naturally once you click on the link you are taken to a page that prominently displays the group’s DONATE NOW button. It is not in the slightest way discreetly designed. As soon as you go to this so-called prayers page you see a large button asking for donations and another one underneath it urging visitors to “sign up” for email blasts and information.

Disgustingly, 21st Century Democrats is using this crime in a fundraising effort.

Don’t believe it? Here’s a screenshot just in case the group decides to scrub it off their website:

This group has no decency.

I suppose they are just following in the footsteps of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, because they are, in his words, not letting a serious crisis to go to waste. Unfortunately, if this group isn’t doing it then others sure are. According to Politico, some Democrats plotted to blame the Tea Party patriots for Saturday’s horrific shooting in Tucson, Arizona:

One veteran Democratic operative, who blames overheated rhetoric for the shooting, said President Barack Obama should carefully but forcefully do what his predecessor did.

“They need to deftly pin this on the tea partiers,” said the Democrat. “Just like the Clinton White House deftly pinned the Oklahoma City bombing on the militia and anti-government people.”

Unfortunately for the Democrats, apart from being incredibly insane, all of the evidence is pointing to the fact that Jared Loughner – the shooter – was more left in his political ideology.

*UPDATE* – January 11, 2011 – 10:45 PM.

What is wrong with Democrats? The Weekly Standard reports:

This afternoon Sanders sent out a fundraising appeal, seeking to raise money to fight Republicans and other “right-wing reactionaries” responsible for the climate that led to the shooting.

He writes:

Given the recent tragedy in Arizona, as well as the start of the new Congress, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few words with political friends in Vermont and throughout the country.  I also want to thank the very many supporters who have begun contributing online to my 2012 reelection campaign at www.bernie.org.  There is no question but that the Republican Party, big money corporate interests and right-wing organizations will vigorously oppose me.  Your financial support now and in the future is much appreciated.

Despicable.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the liberal mainstream media and their coverage of the Rep. Giffords shooting?

Answer: They cannot resist the urge to use tragedies in order to play politics.

First, click here to see some of the crucial facts that the liberal mainstream media has been ignoring.

In my blog post yesterday, I mentioned that it comes as no surprise that the liberal mainstream and others from the Left are trying to use this tragic event to play politics. Those who are blaming this horrible event on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Fox News, the Republican Party, and other conservative political identities are immature and irresponsible.

What’s the reason for all of this? Glenn Reynolds – from The Wall Street Journal – elaborates:

Shortly after November’s electoral defeat for the Democrats, pollster Mark Penn appeared on Chris Matthews’s TV show and remarked that what President Obama needed to reconnect with the American people was another Oklahoma City bombing. To judge from the reaction to Saturday’s tragic shootings in Arizona, many on the left (and in the press) agree, and for a while hoped that Jared Lee Loughner’s killing spree might fill the bill.

With only the barest outline of events available, pundits and reporters seemed to agree that the massacre had to be the fault of the tea party movement in general, and of Sarah Palin in particular. Why? Because they had created, in New York Times columnist Paul Krugman’s words, a “climate of hate.”

[…]

To be clear, if you’re using this event to criticize the “rhetoric” of Mrs. Palin or others with whom you disagree, then you’re either: (a) asserting a connection between the “rhetoric” and the shooting, which based on evidence to date would be what we call a vicious lie; or (b) you’re not, in which case you’re just seizing on a tragedy to try to score unrelated political points, which is contemptible. Which is it?

I understand the desperation that Democrats must feel after taking a historic beating in the midterm elections and seeing the popularity of ObamaCare plummet while voters flee the party in droves. But those who purport to care about the health of our political community demonstrate precious little actual concern for America’s political well-being when they seize on any pretext, however flimsy, to call their political opponents accomplices to murder.

Where is the decency in that?

I believe the last paragraph says it loud and clear. The Left is so frustrated that they cannot find any hardcore evidence against the Tea Party movement in order to use it against them and discredit their political ideology – plain and simple. Therefore, we can only expect a lot more garbage and nonsense to spew out of the enormous megaphone known as the liberal mainstream media. Heck, it has already started.

Here are some of the liberals who are trying to play politics with this tragic story (this list will be constantly updated):

Expect this list to grow quickly…

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Keith Olbermann’s special comments on the US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords shooting?

Answer: He blames the Safeway Massacre on Sarah Palin, Rep. Allen West (R-FL), the Tea Party, Sharron Angle, Glenn Beck, and Bill O’Reilly.

I am sorry, but this is absolutely pathetic and irresponsible. Perhaps the folks over at MSNBC did not hand Mr. Olbermann the memo, but there has not been any absolute motive reported so far. Also, it is interesting that Mr. Olbermann forgot to include these crucial details about the shooter:

  • He shot and killed a Federal Judge that was appointed by Republican President George H.W. Bush.
  • His favorite books included Hilter’s Mein Kampf and Karl Marx’s Communist Maniefesto.
  • One of his former high school classmates said, “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal.”
  • One of his favorite videos on YouTube was of a person dressed as the Grim Reaper burning the American flag.

I cannot speak for Keith Olbermann, but that sure does not sound like the typical Sarah Palin or Tea Party supporter. In all honesty, it sounds like someone that leans left of the political spectrum. Either way, the shooter – Jared Loughner – was more insane than he was anything else. I just wish Kieth Olbermann and all of the other irresponsible journalists in the liberal mainstream media would realize this.

Here’s an interesting refresher that some of these so-called journalists (Keith Olbermann, Paul Krugman, etc.) should take a look at:

The liberal mainstream media should learn a lesson from The National Review’s Jonah Goldberg:

I’ve been trying to follow the story today while balancing some other obligations. I’ve been reading the instant-reaction on Twitter and on the web and I’ve been trying to filter out the urge to vent my rage at those who immediately shoe-horned these awful crimes into their ideological prism. There have been some truly disgusting displays of opportunism out there. I will confess to having made those kinds of mistakes in the past and I try very hard to learn from those mistakes.

If I had my druthers, the news networks would ban political commentators of all stripes for the first 24 hours after these kinds of tragedies. The rush to be wrong first is just too hard for some to resist.  If anyone cares, my column on the 2007 Virginia Tech shooting captures pretty well my feelings about the day.

Anyway, I’m going to hold off commenting until we know more. My thoughts and prayers to the families of all concerned.

Until more details have been released, I just hope the so-called journalists, such as Keith Olbermann, would keep their hatred for the right locked away inside their demented minds.

Unfortunately, I am sure more garbage like this will pop up over this weekend. Oh wait… It has already started.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked a grocery store in Tucson, AZ?

Answer: U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and at least 18 others were shot.

FOX News reports:

Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is in critical condition after being shot in the head at close range  Saturday morning while holding a public event, Fox News has confirmed.

Initial reports said that Giffords had died but a hospital spokesman and three House sources told Fox News that she remained alive in a nearby hospital where she was undergoing surgery.

At least 19 people were shot at Gifford’s “Your Corner” event held outside a Safeway grocery store in Tucson, including three members of the Democratic congresswoman’s staff in Arizona. Five have died, including one of Gifford’s aides, and nine are in critical condition at the University of Arizona Medical Center.

A suspect is in custody. Authorities are looking for a possible second suspect.

Arizona state Sen. Linda Lopez, who is a friend of Giffords, told Fox News that Giffords is responding to commands and that she’s confident that she will survive surgery. But she’s sure what her long term prognosis is.

This is absolutely horrible. More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 4:16 PM

The shooter was a 22 year-old, white male. Fox News believes they have the name of the suspect but are not releasing the name until it has been confirmed.

Also, there have been multiple reports about a second suspect being arrested. More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 4:43 PM

The shooter has been identified as Jared Loughner. Here is his video that the News is taking his quotes from:

More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 5:25 PM.

Federal Judge John Roll was killed during a shooting. CBS News reports:

Appointed by President George H.W. Bush in 1991, Federal Judge John McCarthy Roll was shot and killed today when an assailant opened fire in a Safeway parking lot in Ariz., where Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz. was meeting with constituents.

More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 6:29 PM.

More photos have been released of the suspected gunman, Jared Loughner. More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 6:57 PM.

It comes as no surprise that the liberal mainstream and others from the Left are trying to use this tragic event to play politics. Those who are blaming this horrible event on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, Fox News, the Republican Party, and other conservative political identities are immature and irresponsible.

Liberals who are trying to play politics with this tragic story (this list is constantly updated):

I’m quite confident more garbage like this will be popping up this weekend. More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 7:26 PM.

The Business Insider reports:

A woman named Caitie Parker has been tweeting that she went to school with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ alleged shooter Jared Loughner and that he had met Giffords previously.

Also,” he was a pot head & into rock like Hendrix,The Doors, Anti-Flag. I haven’t seen him in person since ’07 in a sign language class” and “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy.”

More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 7:31 PM.

Apparently the Safeway massacare shooter, Jared Loughner, loved the books Mein Kampf and the Communist Maniefesto. The Daily Caller reports:

Jared Lee Loughner, the man believed responsible for the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of at least five others Saturday, left his MySpace friends a “goodbye” before his page was apparently taken down.

His YouTube page, in which he lists both The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf among his favorite books, is still operational. Incidentally, Congresswoman Giffords is Jewish.

More to come…

*UPDATE* – January 8, 2011 – 9:06 PM.

Hot Air reports:

There’s one other video on Loughner’s YouTube page — not a clip that he created, but one created by someone else which he “favorited.” It’s of a flag-burning.

I don’t know about you, but I find this video really freaky…

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Republican State Rep. Frank Pratt’s whereabouts on Christmas Day?

Answer: Beaten unconscious in his swimming pool store.

FOX News reports:

Police in Casa Grande say an Arizona legislator was sent to the hospital after being beaten and knocked unconscious at his business Christmas Day.

Rep. Frank Pratt, 68, was found by his wife about 8 p.m. Saturday at Pratt Pools in Casa Grande, said Mike Keck, criminal investigations commander for the Casa Grande Police Department.

Pratt had gone to the business earlier in the day to check on it and was confronted by someone who was already inside, Keck said.

Pratt was beaten and knocked unconscious, and left tied up inside the building.

[…]

Keck said Pratt was airlifted to a Phoenix hospital, where he was listed in stable condition with multiple cuts and bruises and at least one fracture.

Hmm…

Although it is tough to resist, I am not going to make any assumptions at this time.
