There is an Internet report that Liberal Radio Show Host Randi Rhodes of Err Amerika was assaulted and badly beaten while walking her dog near her New York apartment. Rhodes lost several teeth and will be out of work for at least a week. Let me start by saying that I pray she heals and that they catch the scum who did this.
I do want to address the idiots on the left who are, without evidence, accusing the “right wing hate machine” of trying to threaten and intimidate Liberal talk out of fear. Liberal talk accounts for about 10% of the programming on talk radio and Rush Limbaugh has a larger audience than all of Err Amerika’s staff combined. Of course, I do not know who did this or what the motivation was but I am willing to bet that it was not some Conservative looking to attack her. However, I will wait to see who they catch and what they say before I comment on the attacker. Let it suffice to say that, it is more likely that she was the victim of a random act of violence than a deliberate attack. It might have even been one of the poor drug abusers or violent criminals that Liberals like Rhodes want rehabilitated and released from jail.
Of course, in New York people are not allowed to carry guns unless they are police or body guards for important people. However, I will state this right up front so there will be no mistake abut it, open carry permits would not have helped Rhodes. She is a Liberal and does not believe in gun ownership (though many libs want to take that right from us while retaining it for themselves, like Dianne Feinstein). I cannot help but wonder if she will have a change of heart about being able to defend oneself when threatened. If Rhodes had a firearm, perhaps she would not have been beaten. Maybe now she will actually support the Second Amendment rather than oppose it and the unconstitutional assault on it and our citizens.
Regardless of all that though, the idiot who filled in for her was way off base blaming the right for this attack. This is not like saying that the crime of defacing the Vietnam Memorial was probably a liberal because a conservative would most likely not do this kind of thing. This attack on the right is not based in any rational thought. New York is full of criminals and an overwhelming number of the prison population (people who eventually get released) are Democrats. Conservatives are not usually involved in violent crimes. Of course there are some extremists in any group but by and large violent criminals are likely to be liberal and registered (if at all) as Democrat. I am not going to say what ideology the attacker had because I do not know though I know what it is most likely to be. This could prove wrong but we will only find out if and when the attacker is caught. This premature condemnation of the right only shows how ignorant and intolerant the left really is. Besides, we already kick their asses on the air, why physically harm them?
I also wonder if people who make a big deal about blaming Liberals for defacing monuments will go to these Liberal sites and admonish them for making accusations without evidence.
It is amazing that the comments from some on the left point to a right wing attack (though some sane people said that they needed to wait to get details).
Those very liberals were saying that they should cruise to the Free Republic to see if anyone is bragging so I went to see. There are more comments wishing here well and hoping that the attackers are caught than anything else.
To their credit, the folks commenting at Kos (from what I have read) are saying it looks like a random crime and they are not jumping on the right wing attack meme, as of yet. There are a few trying to infuse it, but most are not.
I am still having a problem with this not being reported in all the news outlets. It seems to be confined to a few websites and on the show of the loser who filled in for her. Did she really get attacked (and if so, why no news), Is this a publicity stunt? Did she have an abortion that got botched and she needs to be home a few days and the mugging sounded like a better excuse?
I just don’t know. If she was truly attacked then I pray she is OK. If not, just what is going on?
UPDATE: ooooh snap, it appears as if Randi Rhodes fell down while walking her dog and that is how she was injured. She does not know how it happened (maybe her brain had a bit of chemical alteration) but one thing is clear, if she was not mugged she was not mugged by a conservative right wing hate monger. I wonder how many apologies we will see from the ding dongs on the left. I knew that something was fishy when it was not all over the news. Seems the police heard all this stuff and called to find out why she had not reported it. That is when the truth came out from her lawyer. I wonder why Rhodes did not squash this when it first started?? New York Daily News
