You know the Left feels defensive about that Bernie supporter, Hodgkinson, who shot at Republicans. You know because the Left handles insecurity by throwing wild accusations at others, in order to deflect the discredit that the Left has earned.
- The New York Times has revived the Gabby Giffords blood libel against Sarah Palin.
Palin never incited Jared Lee Loughner to shoot Rep. Gabby Giffords or anyone, in 2011. And Loughner was, if anything, somewhat of a leftist; he counted the Communist Manifesto among his favorite books.
But NYT has, once again (as they did at the time), cited a non-existent “link” between Loughner’s actions and some obscure political actions of Palin’s in 2011. Palin is considering libel action against NYT.
- Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi calls her GOP colleagues “sanctimonius” over the recent shooting.
Most of us have heard that one, before. When an insecure leftie knows that she’s in the wrong and you’re in the right, she will feel/assume that you’re looking down on her. We would also accept “You’re so self-righteous”, “uptight”, “judgmental” as typical plays.
SCALISE UPDATE: He remains in critical condition.
I came across this clip of him today, in a recent public service ad against human trafficking. He seems like a nice enough guy.
I couldn’t quickly find which House bills he’s talking about (or what they would do about human trafficking), unless it’s this batch that was passed in January.
