Shots Fired

I think we can all express relief that Oscar Ortega-Hernandez’s attempt to assassinate the President came to nothing more than his arrest and a dent in some ballistic glass. Doubtless, we’ll find out more about him in the next few days. But it has been amusing to watch the usual attempt to blame this on the Right Wing turn into a double backflip.

Backflip One: When the Right, based on the presence of massive violent left wing protests in DC and the guy’s bum-like appearance, tried to connect Ortega-Hernandez to OWS, the Left cried foul. They continued to cry foul when it was pointed out that Occupy San Diego had a moment of silence in his honor.

Backflip Two: When it came out that Ortega-Hernandez referred to Obama as the anti-Christ, the same left wingers screamed that this proved his right wing credentials. This is because fringe publication World Net Daily has run opinion pieces on whether or not Obama is the anti-Christ.

Be careful guys. Be sure to stretch and warm up before you engage in those kind of mental gymnastics. Would’t want you to break anything.

    Oddly enough, this exact situation was predicted a few weeks back at another blog, and attributed to an Obama campaign strategy that was approved and planned months ago….

    After Fast & Furious, i am surprised we have not seen more of this. And I would not be surprised at all to discover this was actually a planned event to create sympathety for Obama. Maybe even to further incite the OWS lefties into more violence under the guise that they have evil right wingers doing things that hurt them.

    In the meantime Biden continues with violent rhetoric such as telling a cheering union how they fired the first shot. Normally such speak would go in one ear and out the other for me, but since the left decided to change the standards of what is violent rhetoric, and hate, and preached so loudly from the pulpit, I think he should be held accountable when he speaks. Where is the press to say tone it down? Oh that’s right, it’s only a big issue if you manufacture it that way, and now it’s no longer convenient, just like Gitmo is no big deal, or the deaths of our men and women in Afghanistan (why are we still there?), or sending troops all over the place, or exceeding UN mandates let alone putting us in the forefront of a needless confrontation such as Libya in the first place, or corporate cronyism with one of Obama’s biggest donors even in the midst of this pathetic leftist Tea Party, a leftist Tea Party that actually contains all the violence they were claiming the real Tea Party was going to do.

    To sum up, the standards were so strict in an effort to demonize anyone right of center that continuing such standards would be difficult for anyone to adhere to, but not only has the left failed at following their own standards, they’ve made such a mockery of themselves that it’s hard to even figure out what they believe in other than bitching about America in one form or another. That’s about the only consistency. And it only took a year to make that so plainly visible yet again.
