Learning To Think Like A Progressive

If you are a progressive, you believe that Sarah Palin shot Gabrielle Giffords with campaign literature targeting her district.

But you have no problem with Farrakhan calling for black people to murder cops.

Being a progressive used to be known as “being insane.”

  1. As an aside, the image with bull’s-eyes that explicitly was “targeting” politicians was put up a year before … by the Democrats:

    Of course, they killed the site right away after the Giffords shooting, so they could blame Palin for the leftist/nihilist/Democrat campaign worker’s murderous actions.

    Just as today, the NRA is being blamed for inciting the assassination of the police.

    • MrX says:

      Yeah, Democrats used that symbolism all the time. Everyone does. A political target. Sales target. Targeting land you want for development. On and on. By Palin uses it. Oh noes. OTOH, the inciting of violence and hatred toward cops is an entirely new level and no liberal is backing off. They’re all defending this.

      • It almost seems to be, sadly, heading for this:

        Republican mantra: “Don’t rock the boat; go along to get along.”

        Tea Party mantra: “We hold these truths to be self-evident…”

        Democrat mantra: “Whudda we want? Dead cops!”

  2. It is also true that some Progressives like Lena Dunham’s abused sister Grace have taken a more sophisticated and nuanced stand on cop killings. It is in fact so nuanced that I don’t understand it:

    cops’ lives are worth no more than anyone else’s. or, rather, all lives are more important than worth.

    I will now retire to study her thought and pray for America.

    One thing progressives do well is the spin. It’s a 24/7 job.
