It's always about 'hate' when you're a leftist.
If you click here you can read a transcript of Sarah Palin's speech.
Read it, if you care to, and see if you can find one line in there that
you think could reasonably be called "hate speech." Sure .. she said
something about Barack Obama and his teleprompter, and she said that we
need a commander in chief and not a law professor at a lectern. Neither
of those statements are hateful. Liberals could say such things and be
branded eloquent ... but here comes Shrum with this gem:
"What we heard tonight was more a masterful exercise
- masterful - in paranoid politics. I mean, she came across to me as a
merchant of hate with an oh gosh smile..
There you go. Sarah Palin was a "merchant of hate." That's all Shrum
could come up with? The typical and tiring old liberal line about
"hate?" We've talked here about this before. I can't really pin down
when this particular left-wing rhetorical tactic began, but there's no
questioning the game plan. It's simple: Whenever a conservative
criticizes a liberal or any liberal initiative you simply respond by
saying that the conservative is "full of hate" and engaging in "hate
speech." I guess the theory here is that once you've labeled your
political opponent or his ideas as "hateful" you are no longer under
any obligation to respond to that person or their ideas. You just don't
deal with hateful people, do you?
We've now come to the point
where liberals throw around the "hate" word with about the same
frequency as they toss in the "racist" word in a conversation. But
let's face it .. when these leftists try to engage their philosophical
opponents on the issues or in the arena of ideas; they lose. So they're
just doing what they have to do.
some of the statements TV-lands favorite liberals had to say about
Sarah Palin and the Tea Party convention:BILL
PRESS: "We were interested in what you get for $100,000. Not much, is
I'd have to say, you know. If I paid her that, I'd want my money back."
BOB SHRUM: "What we heard tonight was more a masterful exercise -
masterful - in paranoid politics. I mean, she came across to me as a
merchant of hate with an oh gosh smile..."RACHEL MADDOW: Tom
Tancredo who started the event off with ... a big loud racist bang ...
So the convention opened with a clarion call to bring back the literacy
tests for voting. And as you could hear, the tea party convention crowd
erupted in cheers at the suggestion, although, to be fair, it was sort
of hard to tell exactly what the sounds coming from the crowd meant.
They were sort of a little bit muffled by, you know, the white hoods.
