Establishment Media Demonizes Tea Party and Constitutionalists After Giffords Shooting
January 9, 2011
Get ready for the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to be used in a serious way against the Tea Party movement. MSNBC, CNN and the rest of the Mockingbird media are now attempting to portray millions of Americans as violence prone anti-government radicals.
Fox News attributes the shooting to anti-government sentiment.
In the hours following the shooting liberal bloggers blamed Sarah Palin’s mid-term election rhetoric for the Gifford shooting. Palin’s campaign organization, SarahPac, posted an adtargeting Democrat Giffords for defeat during the election. The liberal blogosphere is directly accusing Palin of stoking hatred against the Arizona Congresswoman that led to the shooting in a Tucson parking lot.
Daily Kos and FireDogLake have taken up the charge and are blaming Palin directly. Sarah Palin is not an anti-government radical – she is part of the establishment Republican party and to accuse her of calling for the assassination of Gifford is ludicrous.
The word “target” is a well established part of the Democrat-Republican political lexicon.
In a Tweet, suspected CIA operative Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos wrote sarcastically: “Mission accomplished, Sarah Palin.”
