The Left Needs to Back Off on the Rhetoric Against the Tea Partiers

They won. Their issue passed. For the love of God, with all the nasty rhetoric from the Left aimed at the Right and tea partiers, you would think they LOST their beloved health crap issue. Seriously, this is how winners behave?

Updates below: And the Obama lapdog media needs to own their part of this as well.

For those of you not paying much attention, it's getting ugly out there. The hypocrisy from the Left on this issue is simply over the top.

"Tea Party Racists Get Caught"
in the Kansas City Star.

"Spitting and Slurs Directed at Lawmakers"
in the New York Times

"Racism simmers below surface on health care"
in the Chicago Sun-Times

"Threats, Violence Against Democrats Who Voted For Healthcare Bill"
in the LA Times

"Lawmakers concerned as health-care overhaul foes resort to violence"
in the Washington Post
(describes violence perpetrated by people on the Right)

"Hurled bricks, threats surround health overhaul"
in the Philadelphia Inquirer
(describes violence perpetrated by people on the Right)

"Health-bill anger escalates to vandalism, death threats"
also in the Philadelphia Inquirer

"Fear strikes out as the House passes historic health care reform bill"
in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Tea Party Thugs"
in the Denver Post

This is Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN): stop the threats, stop the vandalism, and stop smearing law-abiding citizens who are simply exercising their First Amendment rights.

The Leftist media has spent an entire week reporting on Congressmen getting "spat on" and called "Nigger" and "faggot" by Tea Partiers. With no proof, the lamestream media went with the story: Tea Partiers "menaced" the Democrats, spitting on them and "heckling" them. Never mind that Pelosi and crew taunted people with her deliberate perp walk through the crowd, she carrying her gigantic mallet and laughing all the way. Does anyone think that she and her minions weren't trying to provoke an incident?

When they couldn't do it, not really, then they described their walk through the crowd using inflamed rhetoric, knowing full well that the leftist media would pick it up and run with it. Rep Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) said he was "spat on" by a protestor; Rep James Clyburn (D-SC) told Obama's lapdog press that he was "shocked" and that he hadn't experienced such treatment since leading protests in South Carolina in the 1960s.

Never mind that, with all the video cameras rolling, no one was able to come up with video of the incidents, particularly the "spitting" on Rep. Cleaver. Until now. Although Cleaver has backed off of his "spat on" statement just a bit. He later described the incident as a man "who allowed saliva to hit my face." Are you kidding? So that was the worst thing they could come up with--a boorish, overenthusiastic protestor yelling at Cleaver. HotAir has the video: "This was supposedly also around the time that tea partiers were shouting racial slurs at Cleaver, John Lewis, and other black congressmen. Listen closely and you . . . won't hear any." Wrote Andrew Breitbart: "Is it really possible that in 2010, in a crowd of 30 or 40 thousand people--at the center of a once-in-a-lifetime media circus--not one person's flipphone, Blackberry, video recorder or a network feed caught a single incident?" Breitbart has called for anyone to email him with the evidence if they have the smoking gun.

As I have said over and over and over, the left has one trick that it will use again and again when its back is in the corner: shout ‘racist’ in a crowded country.

On Saturday, during the peaceful and patriotic tea party protest at the Capitol, the Democrats staged a series of symbolic acts meant to manipulate the media to do its bidding. The Congressional Black Caucus pulled the Selma card and chose to walk through the crowd in the hopes of creating a YouTube incident. . . . The walk in and of itself — with two of the participants holding their handheld cameras above their heads hoping to document “proof” — was an act of racism meant to create a contrast between the tea party crowd and themselves.

It's Saul Alinsky, baby, a man who perfected the art of teaching people to stomp their feet and turn blue until they get their way.

Update. Per Gateway Pundit, just a little something left on Twitter for Sarah Palin. Lamestream media? Silent.

And as GP says, don't forget: when leftist commedians crack rape jokes about Sarah Palin's teen daughter--well, that's a laugh riot.
