Yesterday a gunman attacked the headquarters of the Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington DC. The gunman shot a security guard who was able to prevent him from harming more people. FRC is a pro-life group that also opposes homosexual marriage. They believe in traditional marriage as defined since creation, that being a marriage is between one man and one woman. The gunman is a volunteer at a LGBT community center in DC. Thus this is an act of domestic terrorism. But of course don’t expect the left-wing media to call it that. There will be no somber speech from the President. This act of terrorism will be swept under the rug.
Not only will the left ignore this act of terrorism, they’ll attack the victims. Within three hours of the shooting the Huffington Post called FRC a hate group. They’re getting the marching orders from the notoriously left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center. SPLC pretty much declares that anyone they disagree with is a hate group. Some of that is fine, no one would argue with the KKK or the Neo-Nazi’s labeled as hate groups. But FRC, give me a break. FRC has an honest policy disagreement with SPLC and the left, that doesn’t warrant the designation of a hate group. Of course in the world of the SPLC, liberals and liberal groups can never be labeled with the term hate.
Of course the only reason why the Huffington Post calls FRC a hate group is to justify what a liberal did. They won’t condone it of course but they will let their readers get away with making an excuse for it. We’re to walk away from this thinking “I don’t agree with what he did but I understand why he would attack a hate group.” In the post-modern world of progressive liberalism, this sort of logic is typical. I’ll give credit to the homosexual groups who are distancing themselves from this shooting. But the fact that the liberal press feels the need to unjustly label FRC as a hate group for no other reason than a left-wing outfit called them as such does little more than make an excuse for the fat homosexual who shot a FRC security guard.
Just last year the media was quick to blame Sarah Palin and Tea Party rhetoric for the Rep. Giffords shooting. Just last month ABC was quick to blame the Tea Party for the movie theater shooting in Colorado. Conservatives and Tea Partiers had nothing to do with either of those shootings as the facts quickly showed. But that didn’t stop the speculation from the left-wing media. They have been silent about the FRC shooting. MSNBC devoted a whole 17 seconds to the shooting and claimed it wasn’t politically motivated. A LGBT volunteer shoots a security guard at a left-wing labeled “hate group” while carrying a Chick-fil-A bag. Yeah, that’s not politically motivated at all. Sure MSNBC. Chris Matthews at least had the sense to ignore the shooting rather than make such an absurd argument.
What the media will not discuss is the left’s hatred for conservatives. Yesterday’s shooting is but one example. The media would go wild if a conservative shot a guard at GLAAD. But a liberal shoots a guard at a conservative group, it’s ignored and well, the group is a “hate group” so no one cares if they get shot at. Last year the violence at the Occupy Wall Street protests was largely ignored by the media. Yet the media routinely accused the Tea Party of violence yet there was never any documented act of violence. OWS saw thousands of arrests, there hasn’t been a single arrest at any of thousands of Tea Party events over the last four years. The media ignores or makes excuses for violent liberals, they unjustly attack conservatives without a shred of evidence.
Yesterday we saw the hate of liberals in action. We saw it in the actions of a fat homosexual LGBT volunteer who shot a security guard at a conservative organization’s headquarters. We saw the hatred of the Southern Poverty Law Center which laughably calls everyone they disagree with a hate group. We saw the hatred of the media in citing SPLC, as though FRC’s designation of a hate group somehow made shooting their security guard acceptable or understandable. There is a lot of hate on the left, so much so that when liberals attack they call the victim a hate group.
