LETTER: Left embarrassing, too

Commentary • Apr 2, 2010 at 3:07 AM

I don't think I can hold a recent letter writer too responsible, especially if he listens to the mainstream media and the leaders of the Democrats. They both have certainly implied, if not specifically stated, that all the violence and threats have come from Republicans. But isn't it ironic that, based on the information I have been able to find, there have not been arrests for many of these incidents so we don't know what side they are on. I guess we just assume they are Republicans because that is what much of the press and the Dems' leaders tell us.

It's funny, though, because what I have been able to find is that it was a Democrat who threw a brick through the window of the Democratic Headquarters in Denver. It was a liberal who bit off the finger of another during an argument over health care. The Hummers that were burned because they get poor gas mileage was done by leftists. Then there was Amy Bishop, an Obama fan, who shot her co-workers and it was SEIU thugs who beat down opponents at a health care rally. Recently, Ann Coulter was threatened by angry liberals in Canada. No doubt, there are Republicans making threats and taking other unacceptable actions, but only the GOP is embarrassing?

Only one thing more: Whom should I direct my "Shame on you" towards? The letter writer for believing a biased, mainstream media? That same media? Democrat leaders for their part in this? There's plenty to go around -- shame on all of you. Let's make an attempt to get the story correct next time.
