More examples of Liberal Hate Speech

Jeff Jacoby, the Boston Globe's token conservative has his year end wrap up.
Here are some highlights:

Former Vice President Al Gore referred to GOP activists as "brown shirts." Newsday columnist Hugh Pearson likened the Republican National Convention to the "Nazi rallies held in Germany during the reign of Adolf Hitler." Linda Ronstadt said that the Republican victory on Election Day meant "we've got a new bunch of Hitlers." Chuck Turner, a Boston city councilor, smeared National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice as "a tool of white leaders," like "a Jewish person working for Hitler."

It has increasingly become a habit of leftist argumentation to simply dismiss conservative ideas as evil or noxious rather than rebut them with facts and evidence.

That is why there was no uproar when Cameron Diaz declared that rape might be legalized if women didn't turn out to vote for John Kerry. Or when Walter Cronkite told Larry King that the videotape of Osama bin Laden that surfaced just before the election was "probably set up" by Karl Rove.

Fantasies of murder likewise animated British pundit Charlie Brooker, who ended his Oct. 24 column in the Guardian with a plea for Bush's death: "John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr. -- where are you now that we need you?"

  1. One of the points I wanted to make (if I ever get around to it) when writing on the subject of the movie ZARDOZ was that the liberals effectively see themselves as the Eternals, we on the right are seen as the Brutals, and some of the lefties are in favor of the idea of using Islamic terrorists (OBL, et al.) as the Exterminators to bring us on the Right under control or kill us off altogether.
