MMFA Once Again Ignores Context In Arizona Shooting
"Yet, Fox Attacks Only Progressives For Tying Shooting To The Right"
Yesterday I explained how there is no contradiction in Fox News embracing Sheriff Paul Babeu while criticizing sheriff Clarence Dupnik, as the two made their differing political comments in completely different situations. To writ: Babeu said what he said in the proper situation, whereas Dupnik said what he said in a totally inappropriate, potentially harmful situation.
Similar logic can be applied to the latest false comparison by MMFA. Manfred said to Sid in Ice Age:
"I don't care who started it. I'll finish it."
In this case, Manfred is conservative critics and Sid is the left wing media. See, conservatives did not rush to smear the entire progressive movement on the DAY that the tragedy happened. Conservatives have never done that and hopefully never would do that. For example, John Wayne Gacy was a loyal Democrat and had associations with Jimmy Carter, but conservatives never smeared Carter for what Gacy did.
However, so-called progressives and their cohorts in the left wing media immediately smeared all conservatives-in particular, talk radio-for what Loughner did. Just like Sid, they claimed that conservatives created the climate that caused Loughner to go on a killing spree, so conservative political figures stepped in and cleaned up the mess by turning the tables on them and giving them a taste of their own medicine. Had the left not screamed "WITCH!", this story would be just another sad murder and conservative media figures wouldn't have blamed ANYBODY except Loughner himself.
MMFA and the left wing media started this blame game. And the conservative media is finishing it.
