Why doesn't the left call out the race baiters and people who incite hate and violence?

Tea partiers are descendants of David Duke.

  • It is my understanding that the tea partiers are not against skin color, but being forced to accept socialized health care and a Socialist government.

  • Tea Baggers are not against skin colour!? That's the funniest thing I've read today. Sure, SOME are not....

    To the OP's question, I suppose either they are, but choose not to make a big media deal out of it, or because it's really nto happening, or they just expect people to defend themselves. I am left leaning, and I have done a lot of calling for an end to violence from both sides.

  • First, all 3 are op-ed pieces, which means they are mostly opinion with little or no fact to support them. In this case, no fact. Second, the third link is about how the people who made these claims have not been able to prove them, even though video evidence has come forward. And third, that Colby King? He is the racist. I read his column a few days ago. It seemed to only promote racial tensions by citing one instance of supposed racism that has yet to be substantiated and then reminiscing about the integration of public schools in the past. There are many reasons for people to oppose the HC bill, none of them being racism.

  • brook I see you completely missed the point. These types of comments are made daily on the left. They are meant to inflame and you see the ignorant people on here repeating it daily as nightphoenix just did above.

    You hear not a peep from Obama, Pelosi, or any of the others on the hill condemming this type of trash talk.

  • I watched your 3 links, or at least what worked. The first video stopped at two and half mins. So, this point I missed? You find that liberals and leftists are trying to get a rise out of me? Then, others post and repost it as fact. That I got. The last link was my favorite. That guy cuts people off just as much if not more than Glenn Beck. I do see all the hypocrisy. I also do not expect much out of those people you mentioned either. I find it ridiculous how opposing something that has nothing to do with racism has become a witch hunt to discredit the people protesting it. Going so far as to mention a 16 yr old at a walmart who did something very bad. They never connected him with the TEA party though.

  • Carpy the reason Night and some others defend that and and keep it going is because they have nothing NOTHIIIIIIING lol in their desperate quest to discredit folks coming together in opposition to the big spending and government control power grabs.There is nothing more to it..and even they know it,,unless they are just complete lock step hacks.

  • Well, with a liberal media, what can you expect? Here are some links to another site, admittedly conservative, but you won't find this on a MSM site.

    And, this one even has pictures! Funny how these pics are from more than a year ago, but they didn't make the MSM flinch at all.....

    I just love the selective memory. Maybe Obamacare will provide a remedy for that, but I won't hold my breath.
