Is the Shooting tragedy just what the left has been waiting for?

Right after the 2010 election, democrat pollster Mark Penn told Chris Matthews that what Obama needed to reconnect with the people was another Oklahoma City bombing.
Talking heads and reporters are promoting it had to be the fault of the tea party movement in general, and of Sarah Palin in particular.
Paul Krugman says the right wing has created a climate of hate.
Michael Tomasky of the Guardian claims Hate and Rage are encoded in the right wings DNA
So many other articles along this line can't list them all
Now Democrats in congress are using it to bring back calls for net neutrality, gun control and any other far left control tactic law they can think of
The sheriff is blaming Rush Limbaugh (even though I listen to Rush and never hear him incite violence)
One even is vilifying the reading of the Constitution as the cause.

Sounds like the crisis they have been waiting for.

  • a simple thought came to my mind last night as I watched and read some theories about all this. Christianity prospered the most when it was being opposed in the most violent of ways. I feel, conservatism will be the same to respond as the now defunct left tries very hard to climb back to the top.

  • Sometimes it seems that way. They certainly didn't waste time pulling those bills out of the drawers and dusting them off to bring to the floor.

  • Yes, we were all sitting around hoping this would happen. Talk about a horrible thing to say. If you don't think the right wing is spreading hate, then you haven't been listening.

    I listen every day. Perhaps you should try it instead of listening to the hate from the left.

  • After Ok City the left tried to blame Rush Limbaugh. Their smear campaign and lies in attempt to make a connection didn't work. Liberal media tried to connect the right to AZ shootings, even before a shooter was named. How f'd up is that?? Now they have been Proven wrong, and they still refuse to admit their error. It's sick.

  • I think it's absolutely absurd to blame anyone other than the shooter. Really? They really think Palin is to blame? Are they THAT intimidated by her??? Kind of sad.

  • Sorry, to answer your question....yeah, I do think they were hoping for something tragic to happen. A lot of people are at their weakest and most vulnerable.....they'll believe anything the authority says.

  • No one was HOPING something would happen, they just KNEW it would with all of the hate and rage coming out of *some* of the right wing. BIG DIFFERENCE.
