When news came last January 8 of a shooter in Tucson, Arizona, killing six people and wounding Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the media and the Left were quick to demonize conservatives and Republicans before we even knew anything about the killer. They quickly blamed “right wing hate rhetoric” for 22-year-old Jared Loughner’s killings, although it turns out that Loughner is a psycho whose motives for the massacre, while unclear, were not political.
A week later, before an audience of 14,000 at a memorial honoring the victims, Obama called for more civil political discourse in America:
“at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized…it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we’re talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds…. And I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.”
Obama’s words evaporated like dewdrops in the morning sun, instantly forgotten by the Left, if they even had paid attention in the first place. Self-satisfied narcissists that they are, they think his words applied only to those dastardly Tea Party conservatives.
And so, not only are the Left not talking to us “in a way that heals, not a way that wounds,” they’re ratcheting up the hate rhetoric to heights never seen before. The Left deliberately are provoking a race and class war in America.
This is Part One, on how the Left are itching for a class war. Part Two, on the Left provoking a race war, will be published tomorrow.
Exhibit No. 1
On his show “Real Time” on April 9, 2011, self-styled “comedian” Bill Maher — he of the permanent self-satisfied smirk — called for a class war in America. This is what he said:
“As long as we have three wars going, America needs to add one more: a class war.”
Exhibit No. 2
On August 21, 2011, Democratic Congresswoman and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi foments class warfare by claiming that “the rich” won’t pay taxes because “they want to be immortal,” and that the GOP “hates kids” and deliberately keeps wages low to force people to pay bank fees.
What the former House Speaker did not tell her audience is that she is one of the richest women in America. In 2007, Nancy Pelosi was the sixth wealthiest member of the U.S. House of Representatives, with an estimated average net worth of $62.5 million.
Exhibit No. 3
On August 26, 2011, as described by Buck Sexton of The Blaze, at a protest sing-along against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at the state capitol, a member of the Red & Anarchist Action Network (RAAN) held up a huge banner saying “Class War” and made this threat: “All you f**king Tea Party Baggers, It’s coming, get ready.”
To see the video, go here.
RAAN is a group with “a history of street protests and union pickets which turn violent.” The anarchist group even boasts on its website of having undertaken a number of confrontations with authorities and violence against political parties and banks. See the list here.
