I don't have time to write anything profound today. So I'm going to spout off about something I know very little about.
Apparently Antonia Zerbisias made a joke about Dick Cheney taking a shot at Michelle Malkin. The right-wing is all in a rage while the left-wing is saying it was a joke and how come the right-wing has forgotten all of its widespread calls for assasination emanating from dreck like Ann Coulter and the "smalldeadanimals" crowd (who once lamented that Palestinian rockets missed Louise Arbour when she was visiting Israel).
I haven't read the actual "joke" and I don't intend to. If it really did call for someone to take a shot at Malkin, then it went too far. If her words have been twisted from something purely nonsensical and harmless, then that only compounds the gigantic hypocrisy of vermin like Blogging Tories host and Preston Manning sychophant Stephen Taylor.
I'm sorry, but there have been incidents of verbal violence and eliminationist rhetoric coming from the right-wing over the years that are too numerous to mention. This is an inarguable fact. If you disagree, then tell me (as I asked a while back) where are the leftist snipers and bombers? Where (in North America) has a leftist gone to a place where right-wingers are suspected of congregating, and shot the place up? Where are the buildings they've blown up? Where are the cops they've shot dead?
Off the top of my head, there's the Unabomber and the FLQ. One guy, living alone in a cabin somewhere and a radical separatist movement from forty years ago.
If I'm wrong about this, then please provide me with the evidence.
