Left Wing Rhetoric as Reality

A Communist assassinates President Kennedy.  Decades later, Marxist pothead Oliver Stone produces a movie showing American business and the US military (the original “Right Wing”) responsible for Kennedy’s death.  Of course, Stone sells his lie as truth. 

Now, a left-wing pothead with apparent severe psychiatric disorders shoots a Democratic Congresswoman and a Republican federal judge.  This time, the lefties are much quicker to the trigger, claiming Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and the Tea Party (the “new Right Wing”) are linked and/or somehow responsible.  See, e.g. herehere, here.  As one of the fathers of the modern left once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”

Updates: NYT’s joins the fracas in a sadly predictable fashion. See here.  In contrast, Dr. E. Fuller Torrey in the WSJ explains the lessons we should be drawing from the Tucson tragedy.  See A Predictable Tragedy in Arizona.
