Hypocrisy Thy Name Is Paul Kanjorski

Dem Congressman who called for GOP Gov. to be put against a wall and shot now pleads for civility

Source

This is what former Congressman Kanjorski (he was defeated in November) said in the New yourk Times today.

Therefore, it is incumbent on all Americans to create an atmosphere of civility and respect in which political discourse can flow freely, without fear of violent confrontation.

Now flash back to October 23:

"That Scott down there that's running for governor of Florida," Mr. Kanjorski said. "Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he's running for governor of Florida. He's a millionaire and a billionaire. He's no hero. He's a damn crook. It's just we don't prosecute big crooks."


I really have nothing to add to this.

My only goal here is to keep this up until we see some balance. We have had decades of the fringe media attacking the right for it's hateful comments while ignoring those from the left.

We spent 8 years, ending 2 years ago, of continuos, hateful, and dangerous speech against George Bush that was virtually ignored by the media. Following this we had attacks from the right on Barack Obama that have gotten nowhere near the tenor of the attacks on Bush and we are, according to the media, a bunch of gun-toting, violent racists.

We have spent the days since the shooting hearing about Sarah Palin's crosshairs yet the same media talking about this has ignored the fact that the Democratic Leadership Council did the exact same thing in a previous election to target Republican candidates.

Finally, as usual we can expect no semblance of validity from the New York Times. The paper that ran this story from Paul Krugman when he had no evidence to back up what he was saying, and was quickly shown to be wrong, will see no irony in today's editorial by Mr Kanjorski.

Hypocrisy most foul. The lie that the vitriol comes mainly from the right is still being fostered this morning on shows such as Morning Joe on MSNBC.

The left must be suffering from selective amnesia if they can't remember the horrible things they said about Presidents Bush and President Reagan.

Sure, they inevitably counter that
Clinton received vitriol from the right, but they forget that Clinton broke some basic rules of proper presidential behavior and deserved the opprobrium. Even so,
none of it rose to the level that
was focused on Bush.

Forgot to mention the quote from Alec Baldwin about Rep. Henry Hyde:

"If we were living in another country, what we, all of us together, would go down to Washington and stone Henry Hyde to death, stone him to death, stone him to death!" said Baldwin. "Then we would go to their house and we'd kill the family, kill the children."

Yeah, that's not hateful or intolerant.

I know you better than this … I know you’re only pretending surprise.

If the words double standard and hypocrisy ever applied to anyone, it has to be democrats.

Sheriff Dupnik is so busy railing against the right that he is oblivious to the fact he is propagating extremism. He does this as nitwits line up in the House of Representatives to offer proposals restricting free speech, gun ownership, and thinking … it is a mass movement of sheer lunacy, led by communist senators and so-called journalists.

Within a few hours of the shooting, before anyone knew anything about the shooter, Linda Lopez (D-AZ) announced that the shooter was a veteran. A lie. But it does seem to reveal remarkable consistency among the looney left in Arizona. Didn't Napolitano tell everyone that veterans were right-wing extremists?

There can be no question about what we’re dealing with here: they have shown us their spots, and we can see socialist totalitarianism for what it really is.

Cube, I don't think we have ever risen to the level of what you saw and heard during the Bush years

As far as Baldwin, he's an idiot.

Mustang, that hurts. I was genuinely surprised at this.

I was about to say i can't believe he said that, but then again this is the left. And i should add it was a rare moment of honesty from that leftist, putting his opponents up against a wall and finishing them off. Like in the ol days of stalin, mao and pol pot.

"My only goal here is to keep this up until we see some balance."

May i say that it is because we seek balance that we end up getting kicked in the face, seek to defeat and scatter them and perhaps then you might get some balance.

Chuck said...

MK, good point. Maybe balance isn't the right word. We need to fight for the destruction (peacefully) of the leftist media.
