When I mentioned that we should expect the blame for this to be directed toward the Tea Partiers and conservative policies, I really had no idea the extent to which the Progressive Media would stoop. Silly me!
Blame it on the Tea Parties? Blame it on Sarah Palin? Why not blame it on BoyBlue? Oh .. so you don’t know about BoyBlue? BoyBlue is a writer for the leftist website Daily Kos.
BoyBlue has had a rough life. He was a big time supporter of Gabrielle Giffords, claiming to have donated thousands of dollars to her campaign. Now there’s probably no need for me to go into his being gay, and his boyfriend (spouse) left him after he was laid off … so then BoyBlue puts a gun in his mouth and pulls the trigger, but survives. After months of physical therapy and mental rehab he’s back working for Giffords .. and so forth. So .. what did BoyBlue post on Daily Kos? Well he got mighty upset when Giffords was one of 19 Democrat members of Congress who did not vote for Nancy Pelosi to be minority leader. So on January 6 BoyBlue writes “Congresswoman Giffords is DEAD to me now.” Two days later she’s shot in the head. Nice Touch, BoyBlue .. but oddly I don’t see any liberals or media talking heads referring to your “DEAD to me now” post on a high-influential liberal website as possibly inciting violence. Find that sort of comment from a talk show host spouting conservative policies or a Tea Partier and it’s all over the place … but if you’re just writing for Daily Kos …
BoyBlue certainly isn’t alone in his violent posting. Perhaps you’ve heard about Jean Schmitt? Jean Schmitt is a Congresswoman representing the 2nd District of Ohio. She’s a Republican. Someone left a message on her answering machine. Ready? Here you go:
“Yeah, I’m glad the president passed health care. Yeah. Funky ass, racist-ass Republicans hate that, don’t you? Jean Schmitt, when you got hit by that car, you should’ve broke your back, b*tch. And Boehner, motherf****r that Mitch McConnell. All you racist f**king Republicans. Why don’t you just change your party name to racist? Cuz if one of those f**king Tea baggers had spit on me, I’d have shot all them in the f**king face with my f**king 9 millimeter. F**k all you racist motherf****rs.”
Now .. there’s a nice little threat … and a mention about shooting someone in the face! Have you heard about this one in all of the coverage of the tragedy in Tucson? Didn’t think so.
What about leftist hero Bill Maher? He joked on his TV show about Sarah Palin being one of the first “useless people” to be killed. Nice.
