- Liberals And Violence
This is an interesting example of how liberals think about violence. Virtually all the political threats of violence and all the actual violence that we've seen in recent years has come from the left. Greek rioters kill three. Vast swaths of London are burned to the ground by leftists. Countless leftists protests damage US property and threaten US citizens.
Yet in the minds of the leftwing media, the Tea Party is portrayed as an angry mob, while the anarchists who stormed the Brooklyn bridge were peace loving victims. The Tea Party has never threatened violence toward anyone. Not only were they not destructive to any property, but they left the Washington mall cleaner than it was when they arrived. They were orderly, civil and polite - but to the leftist media, there was some threatened violence in that.
Meanwhile, it sometimes seems like you can't get three liberals in the same place without them setting fire to a parked car, throwing a brick through a window or attacking some innocent who they believe they can bully.
But it's actually worse than that. Dimwit Bill Maher thinks that if a brick went through Rupert Murdoch's window then Fox News would be kinder to the OWS mob. He believes that Murdoch would respond as he and other liberals have to the Tea Party - with fear.
I certainly can't speak for Rupert Murdoch, but I know that if a brick came through my front window I would have no hesitation at using violence to defend myself and my family. I don't like violence, but I certainly don't fear it. I grew up with it. I understand it. And although I'll avoid it whenever I can, when that time comes that I can't, I'll do what I must.
I've been saying for years that liberals... all liberals... are cowards. They react to threats of violence by surrender because they would rather be slaves than use force to stay free. But for people like me (and I would also wager this is true for the bulk of the Tea Party) violence is something to be avoided if possible but used to great effect if it's not.
