You know, those terrible, violent, tea partiers at the Restoring America rally.
Yet when it comes to these selfish, spoiled, unionized commies in Wisconsin their antics are covered with a free pass from the MSM.
What new tone? Left forgets calls for civility
Sarah Palin used a cross hairs logo -- an often-used image in politics, by both sides -- to identify Democratic districts Republicans could win, and suddenly she was responsible for the tragic shootings at a town hall meeting held by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., one of the Democrats Palin targeted for defeat. Or so the left claimed, even after that was proven untrue.
So we are really eager to hear what the liberals who denounced the so-called "rhetoric of hate" have to say about the acts of intimidation and violence, including numerous death threats, perpetrated by public employee unions against Republican state senators in Wisconsin.
After Wednesday night's vote in which Senate Republicans passed a bill to limit the ability of public-sector unions to engage in collective bargaining, union protesters stormed the state capitol. Republican Sen. Randy Hopper told National Review that protesters "were literally trying to break the windows of the cars we were in as we were driving away. I got a phone call yesterday saying that we should be executed. I've had messages saying that they want to beat me with a billy club."
Around 9:30 Wednesday night, Republican senators were sent an e-mail informing them that they were all going to be killed.
"Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks," the e-mail read.
A few weeks before these death threats were made, U.S. Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass., spoke at a solidarity rally in Boston for the Wisconsin unions. He urged union members to "get out on the streets and get a little bloody." Of course, Capuano was one of those calling for more civil rhetoric after the Giffords shootings.
The institutions of the left, from the Democratic Party to The New York Times to Moveon.org, called for an end to violent political rhetoric immediately after the tragedy in Arizona on Jan. 8. That was only two months ago. How quickly, and conveniently, those demands for civility were forgotten.
When liberals drop a load on the democratic process
You can always count on the flies coming around
Wasn't it the Messiah who once said, "We won you lost, now get over it."
That same principle does not seem to apply to the Governor of Wisconsin.
