RECKLESS: NY Times Blames Sarah Palin for Giffords Shooting, GOP for Scalise Shooting?!
Yesterday a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to assassinate Republicans. Naturally the hate-filled New York Times used the incident to blame the GOP for everything. Editorial writer Charles Blow, wrote this gem last night. Today the Times issued some corrections because, shocker of shocks, people with IQs above 70 found some flaws. Mainly that Blow (bad puns incoming), in concert with his newspaper better used to line rabbit cages, blamed Sarah Palin for the shooting of Gabby Giffords.
Here's a fun little side-by-side. Remember, kids, the internet is forever.
Here's the before and after of the two paragraphs from the @nytimes editorial https://t.co/n8GJvHSl2C— Oliver Darcy (@Oliver Darcy)1497538925.0
Naturally Team Palin was miffed over this. Sarah Palin promptly denounced the NY Times for their baseless hatred and smear campaign.
With this sickening NYT's editorial, the media is doing exactly what I said yesterday should not be done. Despite... https://t.co/fqgkwvpKA8— Sarah Palin (@Sarah Palin)1497533457.0
The NY Times issued a correction in a classic case of covering their galactic posteriors with a single ply of toilet paper.

In other words they're "sorry" they got "caught" for tying Sarah Palin to a crime which she was never tied to, nor had any responsibility for whatsoever. Then the NY Times skipped right on back to pulling facts from their dark places and selling it as some kind of intellectual truth. Like blaming the Republican's devotion to the Second Amendment for shootings. Originality doesn't come standard with your subscription to the New York Times. You'd have better luck with a Barney and Friends coloring book.
Charles Blow Me Hard couldn't simply say "Hey, maybe let's stop calling the GOP a bunch of hateful Nazis and painting Trump as Literally Hitler." Nope. Charles Blowhard had to blame the GOP for everything, including when cheese goes moldy (except not that last part).
Republican personalities and officials in the wake of Barack Obama’s election had spoken openly about “Second Amendment remedies” and being “armed and dangerous” and “revolution,” but it was not possible to connect the dots between that irresponsible talk and the Tucson shooter. Now, here I am again, only this time extending the same condemnation to the right for doing the same...
Stop right there, Hoss. Your own editorial board not only claimed Sarah Palin was responsible for Tucson, they did so LAST NIGHT while claiming Bernie had nothing to do with this shooting. Look down at your paycheck then tell me about your condemnation.
This country has a violent culture, is full of guns, and our federal lawmakers — mostly Republicans, it must be said, because there isn’t any real equivalency — are loath to even moderately regulate gun access.
Rep. Mo Brooks, who got shot yesterday, already dropped the mic there. I know the NY Times and its Blowhard mouthpiece hate everything Second Amendment, but what likely motivated the socialist, one-percent-hating lard bucket yesterday wasn't his loathing of metal implements that go boom. He specifically targeted Republicans because they were Republicans. One reason he may have had? The constant blaming of Republicans for any number of GOP policies you falsely represent in the remainder of your OpEd.
And from hateful morons like you, Blow, whose job is to ejaculate GOP hate all over the internet.
I walk the sexual analogy back zero.
I believe Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress are attempting to do very serious harm to the country and its most vulnerable citizens, and I will never stop saying so in the strongest terms I can summon. For many people, this isn’t an abstract policy debate between partisans. For them, these debates — about repealing the Affordable Care Act, for example — are about life and death.
Ah, see. Here's more of the same. The left constantly blames the right using hyperbolic terms: THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IS ABOUT LIFE AND DEATH. THE REPUBLICANS ARE KILLING THE PLANET BY WITHDRAWING FROM PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD. But abortion is about "choice," you anti-woman bigot.
No, the Affordable Care Act is about government being where it shouldn't: the business of healthcare. That doesn't trigger as many gut feels, sure. So instead of being intellectually responsible in reporting, the NY Times doubles down in this editorial, saying Republicans are toying with people's lives when debating the repeal of Obamacare.
A real mystery why people distrust the media.
Last little pull quote before I sign off to bake my head:
But that has nothing to do with the promotion of physical violence; it has everything to do with protecting this country from administrative and legislative violence.
Administrative and legislative violence aren't actual things. Using the word "violence" to describe legislation you don't like MAKES YOU PART OF THE PROBLEM, Blow!
The vitriol the leftist media has for the right, which they put on full display not even 24 hours after the GOP is shot up by a socialist Berner, is part of the problem. Their constant maligning, their use of hyperbolic language to describe political policy, might influence these deranged killers to believe they're somehow Batman, enacting vigilante justice against Republicans. Who they believe are killing people through Obamacare repeals and Paris Climate withdrawals.
But please, let's keep blaming the GOP for everything, including when people mistake raisins for chocolate chips. BASTARDS.
Can we agree a large contingent of crazy resides on the left? Do we need any more proof?
