The mainstream media is enthusiastically running with the story that heroic Democrats who courageously voted for healthcare are now the victims of "terrorism" perpetrated by angry conservatives.
We're a bit confused. When Abdulmutallab tried to bring down a jet with a bomb in his underwear, the media agreed with Eric Holder that it wasn't terror... just an "alleged" criminal act. When Nidal Hasan killed 13 soldiers and wounded 32 others at Ft. Hood, the media shared Barack Obama's opinion that we "shouldn't jump to conclusions" that it was terror. And, oh yeah, the attacks on 9/11? Those were "man-caused disasters"...not terror.
But now the media is reporting that Black legislators were attacked with ugly racial epithets from a white mob...even though video from the event shows no such thing, and a $10,000 reward for any proof that it happened has gone unclaimed. And reports that a rock was thrown through a Democratic congressman's office window fell apart when it was revealed that his office is 30 stories from the ground.
Have the Democrats received offensive and, perhaps, even threatening phonecalls from angry voters? We're sure that they have. And we're also sure that this is nothing new to public figures. What is new is the collaboration between the Democrats and the media to create a false narrative of imaginary "terror" in order to discredit any and all dissent about Healthcare.
So let's be very, very clear. No one on either side should ever promote or condone violence to their political opposition. And the only time the Democrats should be beaten like red-headed step-children is at the polls.
Okay, some death threats and hate speech are real
