Silence The Opponents Now Reaches America

The latest uproar over threats made to lawmakers is overshadowing the reality that most of the communication involved people who only cussed out lawmakers. The people who made the threats should be found and dealt with appropriately. We should also realize that whether they represent the left or the right (a distinction that has not been determined) they represent a small fraction of either side.

But a bigger thing is taking place. The left is using the recent comments as a method to shut down opposition and to marginalize those with legitimate concerns and complaints over the health care takeover that was signed into law.

Paul Krugman of the New York Times gets a laugh out of this and says that one can look but not find calls for violence from Democrat politicians. I have yet to see calls for violence from Republican politicians but Krugman has found them. He cites Sarah Palin’s map with rifle sights on targeted elections as proof of a call for violence. Her use of the word “reload” has also caused a stir among the left. How often have Democrats called political races “targeted”? Should we take that as a call for violence?

Krugman seems to have a short memory for it was Barack Obama who said that he was the only thing standing between AIG employees and pitchforks. It was the Democrat wing at ACORN who arranged bus trips to the homes of these people in order to harass them. It was Obama who said that if they bring a knife he will bring a gun and it was Obama who told his followers to get in their faces…

This is the Alinsky crowd working to isolate the opposition and keep it on the defense.

Pretty soon we will have to worry about an America that resembles Venezuela:

The owner of Venezuela’s only remaining TV channel that takes a critical line against President Hugo Chavez was arrested Thursday, raising concerns the government is carrying out a widening crackdown aimed at silencing opponents. Yahoo News

How long before this takes place? How long before the opposition is silenced? They are working on it now.

The call for the Fairness Doctrine to be reinstated is but one method being considered to silence the opposition.

But it will not work.

Never surrender, never submit.

    “We should also realize that whether they represent the left or the right (a distinction that has not been determined) they represent a small fraction of either side.”

    We also haven’t established if the attacks on Democrats came from green martians who hate human health care. That’s about as logical and supported by evidence as you suggesting the left is conspiring to make it look like the right is violent in order to marginalize opposition to health care.

    Next time a radical Muslim attacks the US I’ll be the first to remind you that it might just be an Islamophobe looking to stoke tensions and make Muslims look bad to marginalize opposition your side’s radical anti-Islamic agenda…

      You do that Adam, but in the meantime, I will agree that there have been many documented incidents of leftists actually attacking their own in order to “manufacture” the outrage and attempt to minimalize the opposition.
      The incident at the Dem headquarters comes to mind- as does the suicide of the census taker, in order to blame the conservatives.
      The lamestream media jumped ugly on those stories until the truth came out, then nary a peep from those rags.
