A clarion call to ‘Stop the hate filled “Rhetoric”‘ but those who live in glass houses, should not throw stones !

In wake of the recent shootings in Arizona- the left is blaming “right-wing” for the Rhetoric which they claim led to the violence.

The Radically Left-Wing Daily Kos is accusing Sarah Palin of being responsible for the climate that led to the attempted murder of Rep. Giffords in Arizona. The reason: Palin’s use of the symbol “Target” .

What about their “Hate”? The Daily Kos has now removed this post:

But…what the media will NOT report is how Left-Wing Daily Kos placed a TARGET on Rep. Giffords and others in June of 2008:

And the Daily Kos is a website often used by left-wing politicians like: Barack Obama

Also in 2008, this is what Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Then in November of 2010- Obama said Latino’s should “Punish their enemies”

Pelosi had something to say when the political debate heated up during the Tea Party protests:


H/T- Right Perspective

In 2009 ,at the height of public resentment at bonuses being paid to Wall Street investment bankers, Obama said on March 30, 2009 that “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry.”

“I don’t want to quell anger. People are right to be angry. I’m angry. What I want us to do is channel our anger in a constructive way.”

Obama got very defensive when questioned about his inaction on the BP oil spill during an interview for American television on June 7, 2010 and said the following:

At a campaign stop on September 18, 2008, Obama advocated that his supporters “argue with [people], get in their faces”:

John Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate Conservative Republican President Ronald Reagan and was fixed on Actress Jodi Foster- should we now eliminate all Jodi Foster Movies?

And do not forget the other left-wing groups like:

The extremist Earth Liberation Front, or ELF, has claimed responsibility for a rash of fires in California, including a $50-million development in San Diego.

“The organization has never harmed a single person,” said former ELF spokesman Craig Rosebraugh….

Equally stealthy animal radicals also are turning up the heat with an escalating rampage of destruction. In all, these extremists claim more than $100 million of destruction across the country.

Animal rights activists bombed a Bay Area genetics lab and released 10,000 mink in Washington.

and of course, the infamous: UNABOMBER

Perhaps Franklin Graham , the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, put it best when he made this statement regarding the shootings and “political rhetoric”:

This weekend our nation experienced a horrible attack by a deranged man in Arizona. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families in their time of need and suffering.

As the American people grapple for answers to the question of how something as senseless as this shooting could happen, we need to be measured and cautious before we place blame.

Hasty accusations have already been made before much information is known and an investigation has occurred. I believe this is counterproductive and could in itself incite hatred. This is not a time for political opportunism.

Just because we disagree with someone from another political party does not mean we wish them harm. Furthermore, if something horrific happens to a person, it does not mean those who hold differing views are responsible for the actions of a disturbed individual.

What frightens me is that our country has accepted murder, violence and rape as entertainment that we see portrayed every day on TV, movies and video games. I agree with Sheriff Clarence Dupnik when he alluded to the fact that this country needs some serious soul searching. If we as a nation are not careful, we could see the destruction of the foundation upon which this nation was built.

Clearly our politicians and pundits on the left and right must also be careful. Their leadership and rhetoric must set an example for decency and civility.

My prayer is that God will put His loving arms around the families and victims in their time of loss and great suffering, and that they would sense His presence and comfort in their lives.
