Maine's governor says Kiss my Butt to NAACP, Ben Jealous says that inflames racial tension.

Oh kiss my black ass.
Speaking to reporters Friday morning, LePage was asked to respond to suggestions from NAACP members and others that his decision not to attend ceremonies honoring Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was part of a negative pattern.
“Tell them to kiss my butt,” LePage said with a large smile, according to video by WCSH6. He then added: “If they want to play the race card, come to dinner and my son will talk to them,” a reference to his adopted son, Devon Raymond, who is black.

Dan Demeritt, LePage’s spokesman, had said the Republican governor was unable to attend a NAACP dinner honoring King in Portland on Sunday because of personal commitments and a NAACP breakfast in Orono on Monday because he plans to attend the funeral for a former state trooper.

But leaders of the NAACP pointed out in news reports published Friday that LePage had declined numerous invitations from the organization.

Rachel Talbot Ross, state director of the NAACP, told the Portland Press Herald she was concerned “we’re not welcome and we’re not part of the Maine” LePage is preparing to lead.

LePage dismissed such suggestions, however, and said the NAACP can look at his family picture for proof.

“They’re a special interest, end of story, and I’m not going to be held hostage by a special interest,” LePage said. “The fact of the matter is there are only so many hours in the day and so many hours in the week and so much that you can do.”

Demeritt also quoted an organizer of King events at the Muskie Community Center in Waterville as saying that LePage was a regular guest at the annual event, delivering the welcome address in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008.
Within hours of LePage’s comments, the national president and CEO of the NAACP, Benjamin Todd Jealous, issued a strongly worded response.

“Gov. LePage’s decision to inflame racial tension on the eve of the King holiday denigrates his office,” said Jealous, whose father is from Maine. “His words are a reminder of the worst aspects of Maine’s history and out of touch with our nation’s deep yearning for increased civility and racial healing.”

Jealous once again whines because someone doesn't bow down to the irrelevant NAACP demands. NAACP pulls out the race card whenever anyone doesn't behave like they are demanding and this is another example.

Plus for Jealous to say a tongue in cheek "Kiss my butt" comment inflames racial tension is an insult to the black community as if everyone will take up arms over it.

Lincoln Bus fight caught on tape, PLEASE DON'T BE BLAC....Damn it.

The two kids in the video need to be taken away because its obvious their mothers are unfit for civilized society.

Lincoln police said a bus brawl that was caught on tape all stemmed from a running argument over online postings.

Imani Collins, 20, turned herself into police. She was cited for assault, disturbing the peace, and child abuse. Authorities said Collins’ three-year-old daughter was on the bus at the time of the incident.

Marsha Lewis, 20, also turned herself in Friday for the incident. Lewis was cited for assault, child neglect and disturbing the peace by fighting.

I am tired of niggas making the rest of us black people look bad. Forget this BS about all one people and for our brothers and sisters. We need to start ostracizing and ignoring that segment of black people who are useless and worthless pieces of gutter trash.

Enough already.

(Pic) CAIR puts up then removes poster telling Muslims not to talk to FBI.

Stay classy CAIR. They got caught and trying to backtrack.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said it will remove a poster from the group's website promoting an upcoming conference that encourages people not to talk to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The poster, which appeared on the website of CAIR’s California chapter, features a sinister-looking FBI agent with the headlines “Build a Wall of Resistance” and “Don’t Talk to the FBI.” The poster was designed in the late 1970s or early 1980s and has been reproduced by various groups and activists since then in response to alleged harassment by the FBI and to protest grand jury subpoenas.

“I think it’s subject to misinterpretation,” spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told Fox News Radio when speaking about the poster. “We decided out of extreme caution to take it down.”

Gee. I wonder how you could misinterpret this poster?

Neighboring states gleeful over Illinois tax increase.

Start the stealing and make Illinois hurt.
While many states consider boosting their economies with tax cuts, Illinois officials are betting on the opposite tactic: dramatically raising taxes to resolve a budget crisis that threatened to cripple state government.

Neighboring states gleefully plotted Wednesday to take advantage of what they consider a major economic blunder and lure business away from Illinois.

"It's like living next door to `The Simpsons' — you know, the dysfunctional family down the block," Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels said in an interview on Chicago's WLS-AM.

The tax move inspired a day of taunts across state borders and finger-pointing between parties.

"Years ago Wisconsin had a tourism advertising campaign targeted to Illinois with the motto, `Escape to Wisconsin,'" Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said in a statement. "Today we renew that call to Illinois businesses, `Escape to Wisconsin.' You are welcome here."

Illinois state Sen. Dan Duffy, a Republican, labeled the tax increase "the nuclear bomb of jobs bills."

There was even some carping from Illinois Democrats. Chicago Mayor Richard Daley predicted jobs will start trickling out of Illinois with little fanfare.

"Businesses don't have press conferences like this and announce they're moving 50 people out, 60 people out, 70 people," Daley said at an event in Chicago.

But Illinois' governor rejected the idea that the increase would allow other states to lure jobs away. "Lots of luck to them, but that's not going to happen," Quinn said at a news conference Wednesday.

Businesses look at more than taxes when making financial decisions, Quinn said. They also look at whether state government is stable and able to provide good roads and schools.

"It's important for their state government not to be a fiscal basket case," Quinn said

Memphis school where 90 girls are pregnant...Please don't be black...

Pleaseeeee don't be Bla...ah damn it..
What would you say if I told you that there was a high school with 800 students where 90 of the girls are pregnant or already given birth?

Sadly, the only good news from this sad story is that the school is not in Milwaukee, Racine or Beloit.

Frayser High School, in Memphis, Tenn., touts the motto: “Excellence in our expectation….No excuses.”

Of the schools 800 students, 11% are pregnant. That’s an epidemic that can only have long-term problems. Nearly 100% of the school qualifies for free or reduced lunch.

So what is the school doing to fix this problem?

Well officials are rolling out a new initiative aimed at helping to combat the problem. Get this: The teen pregnancy rate in Memphis is between 15% to 20%, nearly twice the national average, and girls in the Frayser High School ZIP code is even higher than that at 26%

The blame falls on the community, the parents or parent and society in general for allowing this sort of behavior to run amok. Here is the sexist part that people forget in that there used to be a stigma attached to getting pregnant at a young age and boys would feel the wrath of their parents for helping getting a young girl pregnant.

Now that is more socially accepted and blame the problems on poverty or not enough sex ed then this is the result. Another blight on the black community.

Michelle Obama's highly political inappropriate open letter on tolerance.

I'm insulted she thought this would pass the smell test.
First lady Michelle Obama urged parents across the United States on Thursday to talk to their children about the Arizona shootings and use the event to teach them a lesson about American values.

Obama said children would struggle with questions about what such an event says about the world.

"The questions my daughters have asked are the same ones that many of your children will have - and they don't lend themselves to easy answers," the first lady wrote in an "open letter" to parents on the White House website.

"But they will provide an opportunity for us as parents to teach some valuable lessons - about the character of our country, about the values we hold dear, and about finding hope at a time when it seems far away," she wrote.

Echoing themes that her husband touched upon in his speech at the memorial service on Wednesday, Mrs. Obama said parents could teach their children to be opened minded even with people whose opinions they don't share.

"We can teach them the value of tolerance - the practice of assuming the best, rather than the worst, about those around us," she wrote. "We can teach them to give others the benefit of the doubt, particularly those with whom they disagree."

The guy who did this was a deranged nutjob were the normal rule of society cannot apply. To keep harping on tolerance of opinion is tying it to another unrelated topic on rhetoric which the left is pushing hard. Its a slick move but typical coming out of this White House.

NPR reporter Daisy Hernandez happy Giffords shooter wasn't Latino but was a "gringo"

Because if it was a Latino then the larger causes in her life more important such as easing up on immigration enforcement would have been harmed. A truly dispicable piece of writing that I would expect to show up on NPR.
It's painfully ironic that a gay Latino man came to the aid of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in the storm of gunfire. Daniel Hernandez, an intern with the congresswoman, ran to Rep. Giffords and helped to stop the bleeding. If a judge hadn't blocked provisions of Arizona's SB 1070 law, the intern's surname would have easily qualified him as a target for police under different circumstances on Saturday. As Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Pima County, Ariz., told reporters: "The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous, and unfortunately Arizona has become sort of the capital."

I admit sadly that it was only after I saw the shooter's gringo surname that I was able to go on and read the rest of the news about those who lost their lives on Saturday and those who, like Rep. Giffords, were severely wounded. I admit also that I felt some small relief in knowing that at least this shooting wouldn't be used as a reason for yet another backlash against immigrants, or at least that’s what I'm hoping. In this political climate, it's hard to tell.

The only way he would have been targeted you ignorant twit is if he was doing something wrong that would have led him to be arrested and checked up on by law enforcement. But good to know your more important concerns were not harmed.

On twitter redheadonfire2 says Sarah Palin should get shot.

It gets screen saved and posted along with other death threats on youtube. Then she has the nerve to complain about her privacy. Really? Are you that dumb?

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Media and American Left Mission accomplished. Palin getting "Unprecedented Level" of Death Threats.

When you have the feeling of self righteousness in your mind they will never admit that what they falsely accused Palin with their blood libel(BTW, the term was used perfectly by her) If something does happen, the mainstream media won't take the responsibility for putting her in danger.

The hell? Tucson Memorial Service is less memorial and more pep rally.

The whole thing seems out of whack for a memorial service and a tribute to the wounded. Too much cheering, whooping and hollaring.

Final thought: Obama put in a fine speech and acted as a President should in this event, lord knows everyone was waiting for him to act like he did during the campaign last November but the speechwriters were smart enough to rise above it.

I still didn't like the pep rally like setting but that is more on the crowd.

Muslim policeman shoots Egyptian Christian dead

The persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Northern Africa continues.
A Muslim policeman shot dead an Egyptian Christian on a train on Tuesday and wounded five others, sources said, less than two weeks after a church was bombed in Egypt's deadliest attack on Christians in years.

The shooting is likely to stoke tensions in the Muslim majority country, where Christians protested for several days after the Jan. 1 bombing of a church in Alexandria that killed up to 23 people.

Christians make up a tenth of Egypt's 79 million people and have long complained of unfair treatment. They have accused the government of not doing enough to protect them.

Mariam Salah, a doctor in Minya, south of the capital, told Reuters her hospital was treating five wounded Christians. She said one of them told her a sixth Christian was shot dead.

Arianna Huffington in movie about killing George W. Bush.

Just to add to the hypocrisy list of leftists who screech on television about rhetoric hurting the country.

While you’re reading all those HuffPo articles filled with hand-wringing sanctimony about the current state of Republican political discourse, keep in mind that according to New York Magazine, the founder of the Huffington Post filmed a role in a sci-fi fantasy film where the two heroes of the film attempt to rid the world of evil by assassinating President George W. Bush:

Mark Halperin says conservatives shouldn't respond to be smeared by the media.

A sure sign this smear campaign by the likes of the NYTIMES and left blogs is backfiring is this crazed answer by Halperin of Time magazine.

Despite claiming the media had behaved “pretty well so far,” Halperin seemed to agree with Scarborough’s assertion that “a shooting was turned into fodder to attack conservatives.” But he seemed to find more fault with how conservatives reacted to unfair attacks than with the original accusations.

“I just want to single out one thing. I think the media and the politicians have behaved pretty well so far. I’m worried about the anger of the right-wing commentariat,” Halperin said. “Fox and George Will and other conservatives are in some cases justifiably upset at liberals, but they’re turning this back into the standard operating procedure of ‘all this is war and fodder for content’ rather than trying to bring the country together.”

“Wait a second,” Scarborough responded. “I think they would say that you have that backwards, that a shooting was turned into fodder to attack conservatives.”

Halperin: “And, I already made that criticism, as well. They’re right, but rather than seizing on it and turning the other cheek, they’re back at their war stations. that’s not going to help us.”

Mcdonalds bringing awesome burgers to Japan, America gets 99 cents mcnuggets.

Come on Mcdonalds America, bring some of these special burgers here for a time.

TOKYO—Even as its U.S. parent bows to consumer demand for healthier products, McDonald's in Japan is ladling on the calories—an unusual strategy in a country known for its healthy diet and longevity.

Japan's top restaurant chain by number of stores, McDonald's Holdings Co. (Japan) Ltd. rolled out its Big America 2 campaign last week, featuring four burgers named after U.S. locales. The Idaho burger, which will make its debut by the end of this month, features a quarter-pound beef patty, melted cheese, a deep-fried hash brown, strips of bacon, onions and pepper-and-mustard sauce. The calorie count: 713.

Suck it.... Illinois House Passes Tax Increase .

Good luck to those in Illinois, have fun paying the taxes.
The measure passed by a vote of 60 to 57 and now goes to the Illinois Senate Wednesday morning, where its prospects are considered good. A new legislature, with narrower Democratic majorities in both houses, will be sworn in at noon.

Among the increases in the bill, the individual income-tax rate would jump to 5%, from 3%. That would cost a family of three making $60,000 about $1,080 more each year in income taxes, according to figures from the Illinois Policy Institute, a nonpartisan free-market think tank. The corporation tax would jump to 7% from 4.8%.

Gov. Pat Quinn came to the House floor to shake hands and congratulate lawmakers on the vote. "We've got a long way to go, so far so good but we have work to do, we've got to work with our senators," he told a reporter as he was getting into an elevator after the vote.

GM wants Pay for Unionized Workers tied to performance and financial health.

I doubt the union will do this because it may mean bleeding the company less than they are used to in the past.
— General Motors Co. wants pay for union-represented workers be tied to employees' work performance and the company's financial health—much like the way its salaried workers are paid—in what would be a major shift in how generations of auto workers have been compensated.

GM wants more flexible pay levels for workers as a way to encourage better performance and avoid locking the company into handing out big raises when the company isn't performing well, company executives say.

"They are trying to give hourly workers the same metrics as salaried workers," GM Vice Chairman Stephen Girsky said Tuesday at the Detroit auto show. "There is a big pay-for-performance element going through the company and there is going to be more of it."

Fight the war against using metaphors in political debate championed by idiots.

I agree with Ann Althouse. What next? Outlawing euphemisms? Sorry but this new tone and all this self righteous bullshit of cutting down on the language used in politics is ridiculous in nearly all cases. Politics in this country has always been a knockdown drag out fight and to claim now that this caused some deranged psycho to go on a killing spree is the American left trying to advantage of the shooting.

I am glad to see instead of people retreating they are taking on the left's nonsense head on.

James Clyburn wants special treatment at airports, fairness doctrine, free speech curtailed to his liking.

Clyburn has really stood out as a politician who is taking advantage of the Giffords shooting to push his agenda. The problem is its a porous playbook that may have worked in the 70s but its not working now except on black liberal radio demanding special treatment for him and other congress people in airports as not to mix with the public.(AUDIO)

or demanding the fairness doctrine back

or saying the shooting is Sarah Palin's fault.

Just a second class individual unworthy of respect.

Shocker: Obama's views on those who oppose his worldview.

Howard Fineman not saying anything that everyone else knew about Obama.

While it seems unkind, Matthews’ original question was whether the President thinks his opponents are “evil,” so the level of insult is somewhat relative.

“From having interviewed him a lot on this topic, and listened to him talk about the Republicans and conservatives who oppose him,” Fineman says, “he doesn’t think they’re evil, he thinks they’re, some of them are ignorant. That they don’t know enough, that they haven’t sufficiently been had the world explained to by somebody like him.”

Matthews then interjects, “That’s my church’s view on other religions.”

It sounds silly, but Matthews makes a good point. Most people who strongly believe something are probably equally convinced that those who disagree simply haven’t had things explained to them properly. He and guest Melinda Henneberger go on to call the President’s view condescending, but it’s worth noting that these are not direct quotes from Fineman, but rather, his own paraphrase.

Giffords shooting: Democrats excited about Barack Obama’s Oklahoma City moment

American left never letting a crisis go to waste. Sick. That is all the Dem operatives and their base is thinking right now is how to use this shooting to help Obama or how Obama could use it to his advantage.

“One of the things I learned from Oklahoma City is not to rush to judgment…We don’t know this Arizona animal’s motive,” said Begala.

“But almost irrespective of that, it wouldn’t hurt for all of us to tone things down a bit – myself included. If the President uses this tragedy to challenge us all to move to higher ground, it would be a welcome message. And if the right tries to demonize him for doing that, they will look small and petty and extreme.”

Veteran Democratic consultant Dan Gerstein said the crisis “really plays to Obama’s strengths as consensus-builder” and gives him the opportunity to build a deeper emotional connection with the people he governs.

“He’ll be active, but also very careful not to appear like he’s blaming or politicizing,” Gerstein predicted.

(AP) Jared Loughner: 9/11 truther, ardent atheist

Yeah.. He sounds like a tea party Sarah Palin supporter to me.
For a time, Loughner drank heavily, to the point of poisoning himself, the friends said. Once, during school lunch break as a junior, he downed so much tequila that he came back to class, within five minutes passed out cold, had to be rushed to the hospital and "almost died," one friend said.

Mistrust of government was Loughner's defining conviction, the friends said. He believed the U.S. government was behind 9/11, and worried that governments were maneuvering to create a unified monetary system ("a New World Order currency" one friend said) so that social elites and bureaucrats could control the rest of the world.

On his YouTube page, he listed among his favorite books "Animal Farm" and "Brave New World" — two novels about how authorities control the masses. Other books in the wide-ranging list included "Mein Kampf," ''The Communist Manifesto," ''Peter Pan" and Aesop's Fables.

Over time, Loughner became increasingly introspective — what one of the friends described as a "nihilistic rut."

An ardent atheist, he began to characterize people as sheep whose free will was being sapped by the government and the monotony of modern life.

"He didn't want people to wake up and do the same thing every day. He wanted more chaos, he wanted less regularity," one friend said.

The friends said Loughner told anyone who would listen that the world we see does not exist, that words have no meaning — and that the only way to derive meaning was during sleep. Loughner began obsessing about a practice called lucid dreaming, in which people try to actively control their sleeping world.

Dem congresswoman readies gun control bill after Giffords shooting.

Dem mindset: Never let a crisis go to waste.

One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday.

McCarthy ran for Congress after her husband was gunned down and her son seriously injured in a shooting in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train.

“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.

Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.

Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.

Another vocal supporter for gun control, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, told POLITICO that he hopes “something good” can come from the Arizona tragedy – perhaps discussion on a new assault weapon ban, sales at gun shows and tracing measures.

MSNBC's ED Schultz: Rip out Dick Cheney's heart and kick it around.

Yeah, liberal violent talk is only in anonymous comments. If the left wants to go down that line of stupid thinking then go for it. That is why this blame the right for the Giffords shooting is blatantly obvious by the likes of Michael Tomasky is insulting and shocking to those who don't believe liberals would be eager to use this shooting for political gain.

Liberal talk show host Ed Schultz would like to take the heart of former Vice President Dick Cheney —who is recovering from his fifth heart attack — and “rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him.”

On his radio show Wednesday, Schultz mocked conservatives who have attacked him for going after the health of the former vice president.

“You’re damn right, Dick Cheney's heart's a political football,” Schultz said in remarks recorded by the media blog Radio Equalizer. “We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him."

Shocker! liberal paper UK Guardian blames Giffords shooting on the "Right Wing"

and the sun rises in the east as well. The Guardian more known as a haven for radical Islamists commentary in their editorial and comment is free section. is just eager to jump on the blame conservatives bandwagon led by usual set of leftists over there.

Three shot at Brooklyn church baby shower.

The tea party or Sarah Palan not linked to it yet.

A baby shower at a Brooklyn church ended in violence early this morning when a thug shot three men after a dispute at the party.

The argument broke out among revelers celebrating at the shower inside a party hall above the Bethel United Zion Church on Dean Street near Washington Avenue around midnight, police said.

The fight spilled onto the street outside the church, and someone opened fire, wounding three men, cops said.

An 18-year-old man was shot in the leg and arm, a 19-year-old man was shot in the leg and buttocks, and a 22-year-old man was hit once in the leg, police said.

All three were taken to Kings County Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition and expected to survive, sources said. It is not clear what prompted the argument.

Rep. Robert Brady introduces bill to rip apart first amendment to "protect" lawmakers, officials

Lets go with this goofball's logic. Why is this protection not extended to all Americans? How are you going to enforce it? Who is going to enforce it? You can't arbitrarily spit on the 1st amendment with knee jerk stupid bills such as this to a tragic shooting.

Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, said he will introduce legislation making it a federal crime for a person to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.

Brady's decision to offer the legislation comes less than 24 hours after a gunman attempted to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona, in a shooting that claimed the lives of a federal judge, and a nine year-old girl, among others.

"The president is a federal official," Brady said in a telephone interview with CNN. "You can't do it to him; you should not be able to do it to a congressman, senator or federal judge.

"This is not a wake up call, this is major alarms going off," he said.

Brady is particularly incensed over a web posting by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during the 2010 election in which she targeted 20 House Democrats, including Giffords for political defeat. The posting showed a map of the United States with the 20 Democratic congressional districts identified by gun sights.

"You can't put bulls eyes or crosshairs on a United States congressman or a federal official," Brady said. "I understand this web site that had it on there is no longer in existence. Someone is feeling a little guilty."

Brady stressed he is not "pointing at any particular party" noting that there is Democratic rhetoric and actions at times that he thinks is out of bounds. "You can disagree without being disagreeable," he said.

As for support for the bill, Brady said, "Why would you be against it?"

Senator Durbin uses Giffords shooting to talk about gun control.

The playbook is so known now that this is not a surprise.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) called for an investigation into how the man who shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and as many as 19 others in Tucson, Ariz., Saturday obtained a handgun despite a “history of mental instability.”

The shooting has launched a fresh debate on gun control laws.

“How did he go through the process and end up with this gun and with this ammunition?” said the Senate majority whip on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think that’s a legitimate question.”

New York City: Abortion capital of America. Black women abortion rate 59.8%

An absolute disgrace has we see a culture that celebrates abortion instead of educating has the desired results. More unborn babies are dying and in the Black community this number should spark more outrage but even a couple of days later it hasn't of course.

41% of all New York City pregnancies end in abortion.

The rate for minorities is even higher.

Both sides say the high abortion percentage is a crisis.

"If 41% of New York babies are aborted, with the percentage even higher in the Bronx and among our African-American babies in the world, it is downright chilling," New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan said.

Broken down by race for 2009:

Specifically non-Hispanic Black's have a 59.8% abortion rate.

Hispanics have a 41.3% abortion rate.

Asians have a 22.7% abortion rate.

And non-Hispanic Whites have a 20.4% abortion rate.

Rep. Raul Grijalva say Sarah Palin should stay quiet, Tea Party's fault over Giffords shooting.

This is why Ann Althouse advice of not fighting back is wrong. Grijalva doesn't have the subtley to make this line of argument look anything but a way to score political points.
Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), who represents a district adjacent to Gabrielle Giffords's, said that Saturday's shooting is a consequence of the vitriolic rhetoric that has arisen over the past few years among extreme elements of the Tea Party.

"The climate has gotten so toxic in our political discourse, setting up for this kind of reaction for too long. It's unfortunate to say that. I hate to say that,"

Grijalva said in an interview with The Huffington Post. "If you're an opponent, you're a deadly enemy," Grijalva said of the mindset among Arizona extremists. "Anybody who contributed to feeding this monster had better step back and realize they're threatening our form of government."

Grijalva said that Tea Party leader Sarah Palin should reflect on the rhetoric that she has employed. "She -- as I mentioned, people contributing to this toxic climate -- Ms. Palin needs to look at her own behavior, and if she wants to help the public discourse, the best thing she could do is to keep quiet."

Thats why you can't let the smears go without fighting back. Its unfortunate but this is how callous people like Grijalva is to politics. Using this shooting to score political points.

Conservatives: Do not take Ann Althouse advice, fight back against the smears.

Via Instapundit:

Ann Althouse:
But whose interests are served by chewing up the wounded flesh in the meat grinder of political rhetoric and whose interests are served by pretending to be above all that? Liberals have an interest in creating a big distraction that might undercut the prevailing conservative momentum. To conservatives, I would say: Don't help them.

If this was just a small amount of people, I would agree but it is a concerted eager effort by mainstream liberals, the media and the Dem party has pointed below to use the Giffords shooting to quiet down the opposition. Its the Dems mantra of never letting a crisis go to waste.

They want the playing field all to themselves and this shooting is their way of trying to do so. Its vile but also predictable of the way the modern liberal twisted thinking has become in politics.

Fort Hood shooting: Don't jump to conclusions, Giffords shooting? Palin/tea party/conservatives fault

As pointed out on Hot Air, when it comes to Islamic terrorism the media is eager to protect but if it can be tied to anything to the right of their beliefs its full steam ahead.

Nothing else this is an eye opener for some on how the liberals in this country operate and how eager they are to smear anyone no matter how horrific the event in this case the Giffords shooting is to everyone else for political purposes.

Wasserman Schultz uses Giffords shooting to smear Allen West and tea party

I am not surprised(first Clip starts at 11:30) as she joins other Dems to use this shooting to push their own political agenda. This is the modern Dem party in a nutshell.

Politico: Dem operative demands Obama uses the shooting against tea party.

Democrats being Democrats never letting a crisis go to waste.
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.”

Another Democratic strategist said the similarity is that Tucson and Oklahoma City both “take place in a climate of bitter and virulent rhetoric against the government and Democrats.”

Liberals Keith Olberman, Eugene Robinson using Gabrielle Giffords shooting for bashing conservatives.

It took less than 24 hours for the liberal media and its biggest players like Keith Olbermann and Paul Krugman and eugene robinson to eagerly take this horrible shooting to use for their own personal political purposes.

The next couple of days look for more as liberals did ask months before if Obama could have his Oklahoma City Bombing moment as pushed by Joan Walsh and Mark Penn. That is where Clinton used the bombing for his own political purpose to bash conservatives and talk radio.

Instapundit has the roundup of this pathetic ploy by liberals to attack the right over this shooting.

BARACK OBAMA: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
