Monday Big Blue Smurf Blogging: What They Said
Posted by Jill | 9:02 PM
Today's honoree: Blue Girl, who has had quite enough of the media drawing false equivalency between the merely opinionated left and the batshit crazy violent right.

Money quote (it's a long one, but go read the whole thing and show BG some love in the comments...or even better, donate over there:

So I have some questions for Howard.  

I wonder if he would care to share some information with us that he seems to have in his possession that the rest of us have missed. How many fringe lefties who hang on every word of Maddow or Olberman have walked into Holy Roller churches and opened up on the parishoners with a shotgun because they "hate conservatives"? Where is our Jim D. Adkisson, who was a die-hard O'Reilley and Hannity devotee? I missed that story, somehow.

And remind me how many lefties have gotten into shootouts with cops? Where is our Richard Poplawski? He's the man in Pittsburgh who armed himself to the teeth, donned body armor and laid in wait.  He met the two officers who responded to his mother's domestic violence call at the door, and he murdered them in cold blood, shooting both of them in the head, then he shot dead the policeman who tried to get to his colleagues and help them.   Two more police officers were wounded.

During the four-hour standoff, hundreds of shots were fired and neighbors hid in their basements until the suspect, 23-year-old Richard Poplawski, was taken into custody.  

His best friend was interviewed and said that Poplawski feared "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon."

Or how about Jerry and Joe Kane, the so-called sovereign citizens who died in a shootout with the police in Arkansas after killing two law enforcement officers? Yep...right wing, anti-government zealots.

Where is the left's James Cummings? He was the Maine man who was shot dead by his abused wife before he could make and detonate a dirty bomb. That was in January 2009 - he went over the edge as soon as Obama was elected, and set his plot in motion before he was even sworn in.  After his death, four 1-gallon containers of 35 percent hydrogen peroxide, uranium, thorium, lithium metal, thermite, aluminum powder, beryllium, boron, black iron oxide and magnesium ribbon were removed from the residence, as well as the instructions to assemble a dirty bomb.

Or how about Byron Williams? Last month the paroled bank robber from northern California loaded up his mom's Toyota Tundra with guns he stole from her safe, donned body armour and headed for San Francisco where he intended to kill staffers at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU to "start a revolution" because he was sick of Congress shoving their "left wing agenda" down America's collective throat.  Where is our Byron Williams, Howard?

Or how about Timothy McVeigh? He murdered 168 people in cold blood because he hated the government as soon as a Democrat was elected. He said he was set off by Waco, but if that hadn't happened it would have been something else.

Where is the lefty who has done any of those things, Howard?

Don't bother looking, you fucking asshole. There isn't one. Not a one of them has a left-leaning counterpart. And so long as that remains the case, Kurtz and the rest of the Village Idiots will not merely remain part of the problem, they will be the arsonists pouring accellerant on an already raging fire.

Thank you! You said it all in the opening...I have had quite enough. Maybe it's because I just got Network off Netflix and got all fired up and mad as hell, and I'm just not gonna take it anymore!

BG and Jill,
Violent nuts are violent nuts - pills won't help. I often wonder why everytime a right wing nut pulls off some deadly action many on the left shrilly yell "See? See?" Any murderous bastard, whatever their twisted personal convictions, should be dealt with to the fullest extent of the law. That means "right wing nuts," leftist revolutionaries, Mohammedans, or anyone else.
Good Evening.

I think I'll swing by and let her know, if I can remember my password.

BTW, thanks fer spreading it around honey.

It is funny how the right is given a pass on these things. Somehow, no one in the MSM seems to take note that just about all the acts of domestic terrorism have been committed by RIGHT-WINGERS...

Like they get a pass on other things, too: Drugs? Clinton: BAD. AH-nuld, who was filmed smoking dope: IOKIYAR!

Sex? Clinton again: Bad, bad, impeachable BAD! Ah-nuld again, who bragged of being involved in gang-bangs? IOKIYAR!

There a double standard and only the left can do wrong....

According to many on the "left" there is no destructive violent groups that could be labled as "leftist." A little history lesson is in order. Lets see there is the "Unabomber," SLA, Weathermen, (which changed its name to Weather Underground-after all even terror groups of the left need to be PC it seems),Earth Liberation Front, and the Black Panthers (although not the "New" Black Panthers, at least not yet). I am sure I am missing some. Can we include Muslim terrorist groups and violent individuals? After many on the far left seem to have some sort of love affair with them. Not sure what that is about frankly but so it goes. Incidentally it is quite interesting that many on the far left seem to have something in common with neo nazi and Klan type groups - a strange affinity for Muslims at the expense of Jewish people. Not me saying this just to get a rise, this is fact. Research it and see. For instance the Nationist Party of America, a white racist "political party" finds common ground with the black racist Nation of Islam when it comes to Israel and Jewish people in general. Funny isn't it as the NPA probably believes the NOI to be untermensch but there is definately common ground. Maybe they should hold a joint rally in defense of Hamas. If that is not weird I don't know what is. Can anyone explain this in a rational manner?
