Sarah Palin gave her video response to the Arizona madman's shooting on her facebook page today. You can find the video in the previous post. One of the things she had to say was that what the madman did must stand on it's own.
"Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election."
She is so right on this. If we were to spend our precious time in life, always pinning blame on someone we disagree with, we would have little time for anything else. The people who do things like this young man, did will be analyzed from here to kingdom come by any number of psycoanalyst's. But to blame others for his actions, is a particular form of evil. To take what someone has done, that is totally evil, and to try and pin blame on someone you don't like, is just beyond the pale.
The mainstream media us given us less and less reason to trust them, with anything, but this has shown that they have gone beyond being untrustworthy, to just plain lying. They did not wait thirty minutes, to even find out who had done the shooting, before they started blaming all the conservatives, who had a different viewpoint than they do, as well as Sarah Palin, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and others.
We need to pay attention to those beyond the media, though. I am afraid that while we are watching, and being outraged at what the media is doing, we really need to be watching what the government is doing. Barack Obama knows that he will not be getting support from the Republican Congress in shutting people up. So, what is he going to do?
He has, as a caller on Glen Beck's radio show, pointed out this morning, been awfully silent. We know that he is very good at using rules and regulations to get what he wants. We know that he seems to care very little whether it is legal or not. We know that he has already gone after some internet sites, all in the name of preventing copyrighted material from being sold, even if a few of those sites did not sell the material. He didn't get much outcry over that, in fact, the mainstream media, really didn't cover it at all. Where you did hear about is was on some of the tech sites and CNET.
Will he start shutting down conservative sites? I don't know! Maybe he will go after the airwaves. Glen Beck mentioned at one time that one of Obama's advisors had mentioned just putting big fines on Radio Stations to stifle the opposition. What will be the next step? We need to be very alert right now. There is a old saying about "The calm before the storm," Well Barack Obama's silence is bothering me. I am waiting for the storm!!!!!
