The hypocrisy of the Left has reached a level where it’s no longer hypocrisy. It is now a blindness about themselves which is the stuff either of moral perversity or mental illness.
Immediately after news broke of the Arizona mass shootings, before anyone knew who and what the shooter was, the Left and their complicit accomplices in the MSM already began pointing their fingers at “right wing hate rhetoric” as the culprit. Even after the facts began pouring in about mass murderer Jared Lee Loughner — that he was apolitical, who paid scant attention to the news, did not listen to talk radio, but instead is a drug-addled mentally-disturbed “loser” who worshipped at a skull-bedecked homemade altar — the Left’s scapegoating and demonization of Conservatives persist, undeterred by facts or the truth.
Now comes a video of “hate tweeds” directed at Governor Sarah Palin which is vicious even for the Left. Here’s NewsMax’s account, “YouTube Video Calling for Palin’s Death Spurs Outrage“:
A four-minute video montage of “hate tweets” on YouTube directed at Sarah Palin and calling for her death is creating outrage on the Internet. The video was posted on Tuesday, before President Barack Obama’s Wednesday address calling for unity in the wake of the Tucson shooting rampage, which killed six and injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 12 others.
The montage is set to Alice Cooper’s song “School’s Out.” Among the tweets:
- “Why couldn’t Sarah Palin get shot instead?”
- “I hope Sarah Palin dies an ugly death and takes her moronic hate with her.”
- “Can somebody please shoot Sarah Palin?”
- “I hope Sarah Palin gets cancer and dies in the next two years.”
- “Sarah Palin should be shot for her encouragement of fanaticism against Democrats.”
- “Join us in praying to God that Sarah Palin contracts cancer and dies.”
- “Sarah Palin is the single most dangerous threat to the future of the human race. Somebody bloody shoot her.”
According to Fox News, “attempts to reach some of the Twitter users who posted the messages were unsuccessful.” Twitter’s terms of service advise that “we may not monitor or control the content posted via the services and we cannot take responsibility for such content.”
One of the many posters responding to the video stated: “Such hate and yet the left feels totally justified in putting the blame on others for one idiot’s action.” Examiner.com observed: “Will this get condemned over at the DemocraticUnderground, or ThinkProgress? Maybe. Will they make as big a stink as they do about Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, and call on YouTube to pull the video and perhaps implore Twitter to pull the Twitter accounts?”
I can’t find the video montage on YouTube, but here’s an arguably even more shocking video:
An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor’s team has been talking to security professionals.
