NPR and other leftist news outlets are blaming the right -- Sarah Palin in particular -- for Arizona's nut-case political assassination. Oh, they don't come right out and say it; they do it under the guise of "what others are saying". But it's there. And it's there because it's where they're at. It fits their world-view and their agendas. They are hoping -- oh, how they are hoping -- this guy turns out to be a tea-partier.
Fact is, when they were suggesting it, they had no idea if this guy was fueled by intemperate right-wing rhetoric. Just like NYC's Mayor Bloomberg, and his wishful hope that the Muslim attack in NY was some white guy disaffected with Obama's healthcare. Another leftist wishful hope dashed.
During the bad, evil Bush presidency I recall hearing more than one high-profile liberal suggesting that America would be better if Bush was "offed". Don't recall hearing any NPR concern or editorializing then about the dangers of intemperate leftist rhetoric.
Here's what we do know at this point in time:
* the guy has been described as far-left by a classmate. Oops.
* the guy hates God. Hey -- didn't the last guy who shot up a bunch of people - the darwinist killer -- also hate God?
If NPR and these other outlets want to hawk an agenda, why not this one: the common theme behind the latest public killing sprees: ardent atheism.
At least this one has, you know, a bit of empirical evidence to support it.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
PS -- No photo on this post. I'm in Africa and internet resources appear to be strictly rationed. I'm getting 0.5 - 2.0 kbps -- and that's when it's not flat-lining on zero!
