MSM Promotes Left-Wing Fantasies of Right-Wing Violence

Left-wing blogs have made much of the death of Bill Sparkman, a Kentucky census worker found asphyxiated next to a tree (to which he was tied) in eastern Kentucky.  Based on a “unsubstantiated claim that ‘fed’ was ‘scrawled’ on his chest,” they’re convinced “every outspoken conservative activist and advocate for limited government” are responsible for “a murder that has yet to be determined a murder.”

Of course they are; they harbor fantasies of right-wing violence so we can fit the caricatures they’ve created of us, a caricature created without them every having studied our movement or considered our ideas.  Just as they presume the person who murdered Sparkman (if indeed he was murdered) listened to Glenn Beck’s TV show and read Michelle Malkin’s blog, they presume we’re racists who engage in violence at our rallies.

The eagerness with which they rush to conclusions about Sparkman’s death provides a window into the worldview or the accusatory left-wingers:

What’s uniquely disgusting about stories like this is the eagerness, to borrow Ace’s perfectly apt description, to find an ideological motive with which to bludgeon one’s opponents. The human life involved is reduced to the crudest sort of political prop.

But, while they’re busy accusing us of supporting violence and promoting racism at our rallies, as if the violence alone made it incumbent upon them to decry the demonstrations, they don’t seem to get all that upset when self-styled anarchists protest capitalism at the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh.  Some of those folks seem to have come dressed for violence, wearing “helmets and safety goggles.

Don Surber reminds us that, in “Pittsburgh — as at every economic summit in the last 20 years — rocks are thrown and the riot police have to come out,” offering:

The same Fourth Estate that was wringing its hands over the harsh words of those tea-bagging pooopy pantsers takes violence by the left in stride.

Tigerhawk suspects “the mainstream media are completely in the tank for the Democrats, and want to help them push the talking point that the tea-partiers are both extremists and typical Republicans (neither of which is generally true).” (via Instapundit).

I guess for them, reporting just doesn’t matter, their narrative suffices.  I mean, why else would “right-leaning journalists” regularly get “rude and offensive emails from reporters in the mainstream media“?

NB:  Due to some commentary about a double meaning hidden in the first sentence, I tweaked it a bit, adding a detail for clarification.  😉



  1. #49: “The original song is titled “Jesus Loves the Little Children.” Who’s the bad Christian now, Sean? Heck, even that “librul” teacher who forced the songs on her class, she knew what the song’s title was!”

    So, you don’t dispute that the teacher lifted lyrics from a song that praises Jesus Christ, and inserted them into a song praising Barack Obama. Got it. And william, I have a problem with anything in the public schools that comes between parents and children regarding political issues, no matter what the ideology. I also support students’ free speech rights and the right for them to pray on school grounds if they choose to do so. But this isn’t a free speech issue. Obviously, you think it’s okay for a government employee to decide that because she supports Obama and his policies, then she has the right to force children to sing songs praising him. You call it “benign” because you believe it’s benign, and if a child’s parent disagrees, well then, he or she is just some hate-filled crazy. That’s the difference. I condemn teachers instructing children to sing songs praising George W. Bush OR Barack Obama because it is up to parents to decide how to raise their children and what values they want to instill. You’re only willing to condemn the instruction of children on political matters that you disagree with.

  2. Well, whaddya know. A poster depicting Obama as Hitler at a townhall meeting has been linked to a Democrat/Union plant:

    Wow. Never saw that coming.

  3. I knew it was only a matter of time before that fiery paranoia reared its’ head. Watch out, Evil Obama’s trying to brainwash our children!!! And he hates white people!! And, back to the original post’s main point, with delusion and idiocy like this at the “mainstream” of conservatism, it’s no surprise that violence has been creeping in at the edges. You and the likes of Stormfront, more and more, you’re all spouting the same talking points. But since it doesn’t appear that anyone’s interested in acknowledging anything but their own victimized outrage, I guess I’ll leave you to your atrophied echo chamber.

  5. And when asked to, you know, back up his information, our latest little letter person’s reply is “I’m taking my ball and going home. How dare you ask me to back up my statements.”
