…and all I got was this T-Shirt:
With continued prayers for the further healing of Gabrielle Giffords and the others injured this past Saturday, with prayers for their families and loved ones, we must re-focus our efforts on the world at hand and the upcoming votes in the newly Republican-led House of Representatives.
Here is a link to a letter on the American’s For Prosperity website that I ask you to forward to your Representative and Senator. Sign up with AFP to stay up-to-date on current legislation and action needed to get our Federal Government headed in the right direction.
Now back to our regularly scheduled Memorial, I mean, Campaign Event. The outlandish actions of the attendees and organizers of the Memorial Service in Tucson, AZ on 1/12/11 are reverberating through the country today. From a “Together We Thrive” T-Shirt for all, to raucous yelling and hooting during the service, to booing the Arizona Governor, the attendees brought shame on the event and the country.
Lefties like Media Matters are trying to downplay the usage of a Memorial Service for a Campaign Event by, once again, attacking Right Leaning radio, pundits, and news services. But, again, right-minded (clear-minded) folks will be polled and assess the event as yet another tragic exploitation of a Memorial much like that of Paul Wellstone.
While the President’s speech was mostly eulogistic, he did break out his oratorical skills to raise the pitch of the adulation from already frenzied to near delirium. I could almost hear, “4 More Years” echoing through the hall.
And to those that booed at Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, you are scum for further denigrating the event in honor of fallen families, heroes, and citizens.
But, the President couldn’t help himself from raising the ire of your humble blogger.
I quote, “If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate — as it should — let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost. (Applause.) Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point-scoring and pettiness that drifts away in the next news cycle.”
The President’s words scold both Right and Left for their actions following the death and injury of those involved. Yet, the vitriol so decried was clearly initially advanced by the Left against Tea Party, Radio, TV, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. And, the simple defense against these unfounded accusations has been used as evidence for guilt (further accusations of vitriol) by the left.
I have yet to hear someone from the Right convict George Soros, Obama, Chris Matthews, or Keith Olbermann for their over-the-top rhetoric. I have yet to hear someone blame Mr. Maddow. I have yet to see Peter Lewis accused.
It doesn’t matter. Racism, Murder Accomplice, Vitriol, Politically Correct, Class Warfare. These are the tools of the left, and they will use them at will…
…even at the Memorial of those lost at the tragic events in Tucson, AZ.
Mr. President, don’t you dare scold me for the actions of the people who reside clearly on your side of the aisle!
But what strikes me the most is how the Left is just PRAYING for the white male bomber or killer to be a member of the Right, the Tea Party, a Republican. From Mayor Bloomberg with the Times Square bomber to anyone who told us not to rush to judgment over the Fort Hood killings… …the left can’t wait until they get their Tea Party Racist Hater Red Meat.
