Shameless: NY Times Still Blames Sarah Palin for Giffords Shooting, Downplays Scalise Shooting

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017 at 6:39 am

If you needed a reminder that the media is hot garbage and why they have an approval rating just north of ISIS, look no further than this insane editorial in light of Wednesday’s assassination attempt in Virginia by a deranged Bernie Sanders fan.

Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.

As there was no link to Palin, this is just and outright lie, it was long ago debunked and there’s absolutely no basis in reality.

Conservatives and right-wing media were quick on Wednesday to demand forceful condemnation of hate speech and crimes by anti-Trump liberals. They’re right. Though there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack, liberals should of course hold themselves to the same standard of decency that they ask of the right.

No sign as direct? Um, all you had to do was take a cursory look at Hodgkinson’s writings and it’s plainly clear he despised Republicans, President Trump and was an avid fan of leftwing radicals such as MSNBC degenertae Rachel Maddow. It’s absolutely nuts to say there was a stronger link with Loughner than with Hodgkinson.

Honestly, you cannot be any further from reality, but hey, it’s the Times we’re talking about.

And they just don’t care. They must protect their warped narrative at any cost.

And now they use this targeting of Republicans to advance their discredited anti-gun agenda. Now along comes Times tool Jonathan Martin with this madness:

Yeah, because why allow Americans to protect themselves from frothing liberals bent on killing them?

If they think people plan to roll over and “come together” with the left they’re sadly mistaken. The left has declared war on Republicans. They should be prepared for them to fight back.

Now that’s 100% accurate. We all know how this would play out. Just like it did in January 2011.
