Frank Rich has a blood lust as do many of those pushing the false meme that opposition to Obama equals racism and violence, as witnessed by Rich’s latest polemic in the NY Times today, The Rage Is Not About Health Care.
As happened with the Bill Sparkman “murder” (turned out to be suicide), the Amy Bishop shooting, the IRS Plane Crasher, the Fort Hood attack, and the Pentagon shooter, mainstream media types like Rich desperately want there to be blood on the ground attributable to Tea Partiers or other Obama opponents to give substance to their self-generated racial hysteria.
But it hasn’t happened, and hopefully never will happen.
So instead Rich invents supposed widescale violence from what amounts to a handful of anonymous threats or acts of vandalism which were just as much directed at Republicans as at Democrats.
Michelle Malkin Doug Powers has it right:
Frank Rich and Friends have more in common with what they accuse tea partiers of being than with the civil rights pioneers whose principles they claim to be standing up for—people who endured similar baseless blanket statements, idiotic and ignorant stereotypes, generalizations, false accusations and yes, even sophomoric homophobic slurs.
Some of us, regardless of our color or sexual orientation, aren’t going to watch our country turned into yet another failed socialist utopia on the ash heap of history without saying a word about it — regardless of the color or sexual orientation of those who are trying to do so. If the only “logical” rebuttal Frank Rich has to people concerned for the future of their children is “racism,” then I’m more positive than ever that I’ve chosen the correct side.
The days of people like Frank Rich having the only say-so are over, and that’s what Frank Rich and the MSM fear most.
