Liberal politicians and commentators have wasted no time blaming conservative talk show hosts (especially Beck and Limbaugh) and political leaders (especially Palin) on inspiring crazed gunman Jared Loughner. (Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders has actually seized upon the tragedy as an opportunity to send out fund-raising letters.) Nevermind Loughner cited Mine Kampf and the Communist Manifesto as favorite reading on his MySpace page. Nevermind that those closest to him say Loughner never watched the news or listened to talk radio.
The big elephant in the room, of course, is the inconvenient fact that the right is really made up of productive, law-abiding, principled families, while it is the left that regularly vandalizes the property of people they don't agree with calls for Palin and Bush's shooting. (This hypocrisy is certainly on display at every Tea Party rally and the whole California Prop 8 issue.)
Michelle Malkin has created a primer of the "climate of hate" created by liberals from 2000 to 2010 for those left pitifully uninformed by the media.
