Terroraktionen i Arizona spøger stadig. Der sker ikke så meget nyt i disse artikler, men jeg ville godt lige have dem med alligevel – Don Feder, Daniel Greenfield, Ezra Levant, Diana West og Katrina Trinko:
The Tucson Shooting – Round Up The Usual Hypocrites
By Don Feder – January 12, 2011
It’s difficult to say which is more absurd – in a loathsome sort of way – Iran blaming Zionists for the Christmas Day massacre of 21 Egyptian Christians, or the left blaming the Tucson shootings on Sarah Palin, Glenn Back, the Tea Party movement and everyone who watches FOX News.
The smoke had hardly cleared from the shootings at a constituent meeting that left six people dead and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords critically wounded, before the liberal smear-machine went into overdrive.
“These sorts of things (Palin putting Giffords’ district in crosshairs on her website during the last election) I think, invite the kind of toxic rhetoric that can lead unstable people to believe this is an acceptable response,” intoned Senator Dick Durbin. Speaking of toxic rhetoric, in 2005, Durbin compared the treatment of terrorist detainees at Guantanamo to the Holocaust, Soviet gulags and Pol Pot.

If Squeaky Fromme breaks out of her cell tomorrow and tries to shoot up congress again– we can still blame Sarah Palin
The Media’s Bloody Circus Ends
By Daniel Greenfield – January 15, 2011
This was what the political climate looked like back in 2006 when this was the DVD cover of a widely promoted movie featuring the murder of President Bush, as a way of discussing how awful Bush is. This wasn’t the work of a single lunatic. Roger Ebert, who is predictably outraged over Palin, praised the movie as “necessary to an understanding of George W. Bush’s role in the world today.”
“The scenario is a familiar one: What would happen if a much-hated world leader was killed in office? Since the failed assassination attempts on Adolph Hitler, fictions imagining how things might have changed with the elimination of one powerful figure have fascinated historians and the public.”
“Bush Jr., whose methods and ideology have been vilified as Hitlerian in real-life speeches and demonstrations that we’ve all seen already”

‘Climate of hate’
Left goes on the attack in an ill-informed political blamestorm
By Ezra Levant – January 16, 2011
U.S. President Barack Obama’s unofficial motto was coined by his first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Emanuel was talking about the banking crisis that Obama used to nationalize General Motors and health insurance.
And so last weekend when a lone gunman in Arizona killed six people and wounded 13 more, including a congresswoman, the Democrats saw their chance.
Clarence Dupnik, the Democrat who is the sheriff for the crime scene, knew what to do. The investigation was just beginning, but Dupnik declared the killer was motivated by conservative political rhetoric, and blamed talk show host Rush Limbaugh in particular.

The right’s pathetic reaction
By Diana West – January 13, 2011
The suppression of the facts is by no means the most dangerous aspect of any Big Lie. After all, facts don’t go away even amid efforts to suppress them. All sorts of inconsistencies, impossibilities and clues remain behind, and sometimes in plain sight, for anyone who cares to look. The real threat the Big Lie poses to society comes when it is not stopped in its tracks, exposed and trashed for what it is – a lie – but rather accepted, accommodated and, indeed, treated as if it were the truth. At that point, a Big Lie is a big success, having created an alternate reality that turns its very targets into hapless accomplices.
Unfortunately, that last bit describes most Republicans’ supine reaction to the reaction – the Big Lie – about the Arizona massacre.
Much has already been written about the heinous movement on the Left to blame conservative politicians, political groups and pundits – but mainly Sarah Palin – for causing the crime, for creating the conditions unique to the crime, with “heated rhetoric” and “violent imagery.” Without even examining the violence (note to liberals: I use the word metaphorically) this specious argument does to the First Amendment, I say this argument is a Big Lie.

The ten most inane comments connecting Sarah Palin to the Tucson shooting.
In the week since the Arizona shootings, much of the media’s commentary exemplified Palin Derangement Syndrome. It became a joke: On Twitter, one of the most popular “hashtags” was #blamePalin, which was used to, well, blame Palin for TV-show cancellations, malfunctioning toilets, and bad restaurant service.
Unfortunately, for all the joking of the Twitterati, liberals were serious. Here’s a list of the top ten most inane comments connecting Palin to the shootings.
