VNN's A. Linder Reads Between the Lines
[Comments in blue are what the Semitically
Correct conservative won't tell you or is too dumb to figure out.]
WHEN HATE SPEECH IS OK
by David Limbaugh
Can anyone fairly deny that when it comes to name calling, insults and innuendo,
conservatives are fair game? They are called racists and anti-Semites, and are said to be
worthy of death, but no one seems to consider such words hate speech or even inappropriate.
That's because the people who might care are the media liberals using the terms. They use
them because they are effective. They are effective because fat, complacent cons like you
and your brother are afraid to name them as the Jews they are.
Last Friday on CBS's "The Late Show with Craig Kilborn," a violent graphic flashed briefly
on the screen. The words "Snipers Wanted" was superimposed over footage of George W. Bush
accepting the Republican nomination at his party's convention in Philadelphia.
In response to complaints, CBS admitted that the display was "an inappropriate and
regrettable graphic" and that CBS and its program producer Worldwide Pants, Inc. "deeply
regret this incident" and would investigate it. Bush, in his usually gracious way, accepted
the apology, and said he looks forward to seeing the results of CBS's investigation.
To me, this is not a laughing matter. You can bet that no one would have been laughing had
Al Gore been the "target" of the "clip." Heads ought to roll at CBS.
Are you saying there's a double-standard applied to conservatives? Wow. That never
occurred to me before.
Is this not reminiscent of militantly liberal film star (excuse the redundancy) Alec
Baldwin's call to violence against Henry Hyde and his family on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien"?
"I'm thinking to myself if we were in other countries, we would all, right now, all of us
together ... would go down to Washington and we would stone Henry Hyde to death! We would
stone him to death! Wait! ... Shut up! No shut up! I'm not finished. We would stone Henry
Hyde to death, and we would go to their homes and we'd kill their wives and their children.
We would kill their families." You cannot credibly contend that with that language Baldwin
was kidding. Did anyone in the media or anyone else on the left condemn Baldwin for hate
speech? By the way, the enlightened, love-filled audience was cheering.
Wow. Liberals as hypocrites. I never thought of that. They openly hate conservatives,
advocate killing them, and get away with it. Whatever are we to do? Surely pointing out
their hypocrisy is enough.... When's dinner?
An arguably more subtle statement was made by CBS's Dan Rather in his recent commentary
about Al Gore's selection of Sen. Joseph Lieberman as his running mate. "The prevailing
logic in the Democratic camp has been, anyone who won't vote for a Gore-Lieberman ticket
because Lieberman is Jewish wouldn't have voted for it in the first place." I don't know if
Rather was speaking for himself there or other proud owners of "the prevailing logic," but
his statement bears scrutiny. Please read it again, carefully.
I ask you: How does it logically follow that those who won't vote for Gore-Lieberman
because Lieberman is Jewish wouldn't have voted for them in the first place? Let's break it
down. Anyone who won't vote for Gore-Lieberman because Lieberman is Jewish is (obviously)
anti-Semitic. They (the anti-Semites) wouldn't have voted for Gore-Lieberman in the first
place. The only people who wouldn't have voted for them in the first place are Republicans.
Therefore, Republicans are anti-Semitic. I see no other plausible explanation.
Wow. A nasty Dan Rather innuendo. Dan's not playing fair!.... "Mom!!!"
Am I reading too much into this, or is Dan Rather or those he cites in the Democratic Party
accusing conservative Republicans of being anti-Semitic?
No, you're not. I think you may be onto something! Wow, the sky is blue and I wonder if
the nation will tolerate this infamy once it knows!
On "The Early Show" Tuesday, Bryant Gumbel, referring to Lieberman's Judaism, asked his
guest, former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, "Do you fully expect Republicans, however quietly,
however strategically, to try to make it an issue?"
Anti-Semitism isn't the only charge, as we all know. Democratic National Committee General
Chairman Ed Rendell, referring to the Republican convention, said, "No four-day convention
can overcome decades of Republican neglect of African-Americans."
This isn't just a "sticks and stones may break my bones" thing. False charges of bigotry
and racism are very damaging. How did that come to be? So
are calls to violence, even if made by those self-exalting leftist brats in Hollywood who
seem to escape all scrutiny because of their allegiance to the politically correct ideology.
Typical conservative: ignore the Jews running the media, focus on
simps like Baldwin.
When you think about it, aren't these false charges of racism almost as odious as racism
itself? How can a word with no steady meaning be falsely applied?
Isn't the chief complaint about so-called hate speech that it incites people to violence?
Well, doesn't it appear that these false charges are doing the same thing, i.e., inciting
people to violence? Or is it OK if the objects of their calls to violence are conservatives?
I truly wish that someone on the left would either explain why it is acceptable to label
conservatives as bigots or publicly denounce those of their brethren who engage in this
I truly wish my brother would quit beating me to the big pork chop.
Nutshell analysis: It would be hard to find a better example of what passes for media
"analysis" among conservatives. They ALWAYS look at symptoms and NEVER look at causes.
Not in a million years would Bruder Limbaugh point out that the mass media is controlled by
Jews, and that anyone desiring electronic amplification must hew their Big Lie about racial
equality. No, conservatives are content, forever and anon, to prove the sky is blue: that
media bias exists. That is part of the reason they are such a feeble and feckless
opposition. Where is the conservative who can get beyond "No shit" analysis? He doesn't
exist. However poor their treatment, these spurious-opposition conservatives still collect
their paychecks, and to all indications that's all they really care about. A little
respectable remonstrating, and then on to the repast.
