Thanks. Haven’t been that pissed off in awhile.
You are at your best when you are pissed off!
As always, good piece. Sadly, many of the com mentors can’t get it. Michele Malkin has a good composition of leftist Hate http://michellemalkin.com/2011/01/10/the-progressive-climate-of-hate-an-illustrated-primer-2000-2010/
and of conservatives being blamed for leftist violence. http://michellemalkin.com/2011/01/14/blame-righty-a-condensed-history/
None of this is new to me. In 1995, I was dating an Israeli girl in college. She broke it off with 3 words, “You killed him”. We were out for dinner, on our way to a concert. Unfortunately PM Yitzak Rabin had been assassinated that day. My date held me accountable for the assassination because I was (and am) a Revisionist Zionist, who considered the “Peace Process” suicidal folly. We generally did not discuss it, as she would always end such discussion by stating that as an American who had not served in the IDF, I had no standing. I understood that she had an emotional investment. Nonetheless, I was shocked to be held accountable for an assassination in another country. My response that assassinations of an elected leader are both evil and counterproductive got an even worse repsonse of “Oh, you’ve planned this through”.
Such monumental emotional stupidity is understandable in a 20 year old. The reaction of adults in NYC is not.
Ron, it’s a case of pure projection. That’s how they would do it: plan it through and use proxy for their dirty deed.
Wow Karol, I just looked through the comments on that WNYC site and these people are NUTS!!! Essentially they just want conservatives to shut up.
