It has been almost 48 hours since a liberal lunatic shot and killed six people and grievously wounded Congressman Gabrielle Giffords. The left immediately jumped into action, trying to blame this on the Tea Party. That did not work out too well when the killer was identified and his friends started saying he was liberal.
Then the message changed, not because the facts changed, but because Conservatives fought back. Remembering what happened in the past, conservatives refused to let liberals try to claim this was the act of someone on the right. Conservatives refused to let the lunatic left define us or this tragedy. And as it turns out, the killer was not a member of the Tea Party movement, so they’ve been forced to change the message. Their message became this tragedy was triggered by the “hate speech” and “violent rhetoric” from conservatives. Again, they ignore the facts, but since when have liberals ever let the facts get in their way?
The liberal hotheads have been flooding twitter and other social media outlets with claims that conservatives are “heartless” because we are talking about the facts. What the really mean is that they are upset with us because we are not simply rolling over and letting them define us or this tragedy to suit their agenda.
The danger is not from the hotheads who run their mouths on social media. The danger comes from those who are in a position to do some real damage and they are now starting to come out of the woodwork.
The first is Congressman Carolyn McCarthy (Socialist-NY). In 1993, her husband was murdered and son seriously injured by a gunman on a Long Island commuter train. Since then she has turned that tragedy into her personal platform to try and strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
McCarthy complains that the killer, Jared Loughner, should not have been able to purchase the gun because of his mental instability. Guess what? There are already laws in effect for that. What McCarthy really wants is to prevent Americans from owning firearms.
Congressman Robert Brady (Socialist-PA) wants to make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening to a federal official or a member of congress.
Perhaps this bill could be called the First Amendment repeal act.
Senators and Congressmen from the party of treason have a real problem. They do not like criticism. They do not want to be accountable to the people. Their definition of something that is perceived as threatening is simply disagreeing with them or calling for them to be replaced.
Does anyone remember the Health Care debate? When the members of congress from the party of treason decided to walk down the road to Capitol Hill to try and provoke the Tea Party protesters into doing something?
It did not work, so what did they do? They lied. First they claimed they were spit on and when video disproved that, and they claimed Tea Party protesters had used racial epithets against them. Funny, that got disproved too.
This type of lunatic legislation exists for one reason only - to try and silence political speech from conservatives. Liberals are quite willing to lie about these things, while conservatives have enough respect for America and the rule of law, not to lie.
Finally, the left is out to destroy Sarah Palin. We have known this for two years. Now they are trying to use this incident to end her political career.
With the possible exception of Rush Limbaugh, there is no bigger name in conservative political circles. The left wing media has gone after her, while ignoring identical comments from far left groups, such as the Daily Kos.
At Tea Party Nation, we know something about having the left try to destroy you.
A year ago, as we were preparing for the National Tea Party Convention in Nashville, a group of liberal journalists, led by David Weigel, now of Slate.com, tried to destroy our convention. Sarah Palin could have cut and run because of the heat. She did not.
Now is the time we need to stand with Sarah Palin against the left. If the left can use this incident to destroy her, they can destroy anyone in the conservative movement.
We need to keep turning the tables on the left and keep the pressure on them. This shooter was a liberal lunatic. Democratic operatives have already said they are trying to pin this on the Tea Party movement. We need to fight back and put the blame for this anti-conservative propaganda where it belongs.
The liberal left.
