Michelle Malkin graces us with her latest article, on her website and on Townhall, in which she outlines how the left-wing manufactures and trumps up incidents of hate and violence to further their own agenda.
I’m still on semi-vacation, but the Left never takes a break from falsely accusing the Right of fomenting hatred and violence through political speech. The MSM never takes a break from whitewashing leftist intolerance, death threats, and extremism — and engaging in selective reporting (or rather, non-reporting) of the long history of leftists’ manufacturing of hatred for political gain. My syndicated column fills in the missing context. In related developments, Glenn Reynolds takes a look at a new dubious report of rock-throwing. Erick Erickson shreds Josh Marshall’s specious incitement accusations. Patterico reports on the latest Twitter death threats against the Palin family. (Here’s a reminder about the one a Toronto Star columnist posted about me, which was laughed off by her editor and ignored by her colleagues). Here’s Mary Katharine Ham’s reminder that 7 of the 10 violent incidents during the summer town hall protests were brought to you by Obama-bots and union thugs. And in case you need a quick refresher on the routine liberal ugliness that will never be decried by the civility police, see here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here here.

Apparently the Democrats in the House have been picking up on some of the ire against their shenanigans. Deem and Pass will not be used, and there will be a direct vote on Obamacare in the House.
The vote on Obamacare draws neigh, and the blogosphere is abuzz with analysis, commentary, and rebuttals of all the latest developments as the Democrats make a final bribes bid push for the votes they need, and the Republicans intensify their opposition.
As a follow up to my previous post on the whole Massa mess, here’s some of the latest.
Massa did not rescind his resignation, and did in fact resign his seat, despite his claims he would consider rescinding his resignation if his claims to have been framed became a big national story. It did. He still resigned. I’m still inclined to believe that there is something more going on here. He announced his resignation before he knew what he was being investigated for. Yet he’s talking about the alleged sexual harrassment openly, and doesn’t seem to be too worried about it, and apparently the story was widely known in Democratic circles. So why would he be so worried that he would resign? What else is he worried about coming out? He didn’t try to fight it, and assumed that whatever was coming would be really bad, and while the sexual harrassment claim is bad, it doesn’t seem to be bad enough. We’ll see what else comes out.
Meanwhile, the White House is decrying Massa’s claims of being forced out for opposing Obamacare. Given Obama’s history of forcing political opponents out of elections, I think I could buy the setup story, especially given the timing of the investigation. But I could also buy that Massa is just trying to cover his own ass. Read the rest of this entry »
