Clinton Worries About “Incendiary Language” from Talk Radio and Tea Parties

21 Apr

On the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, Bill Clinton warned about the anti-government rhetoric, ringing out from talk radio to Tea Party rallies. In an interview with the NY Times Clinton stated “there can be real consequences when what you say animates people who do things you would never do,” and claimed that Timothy McVeigh and those who assisted him, “were profoundly alienated, disconnected people who bought into this militant antigovernment line.”

Clinton, who was completely silent as Bush was hatefully vilified for 8 years by liberal protesters, shamelessly compared the actions of Timothy McVeigh to the “incendiary language” coming from Tea Parties today.  President Bush was called a murderer, racist, Nazi, Hitler, just to name a few.  I didn’t hear Bill Clinton or the “mainstream” media warning us all of the consequences of “incendiary language.”

Apparently we should only be alarmed by “incendiary language” when it comes from Conservatives.  Years of hateful comments by liberal commentators like Keith Olbermann and Ed Schutz, or from anti-war protesters like Cindy Sheehan, are perfectly normal and we should respect their anger and rage and try to understand what it is that has caused it. But when Conservatives are angry, the media instantly calls for more civility.

Furthermore, Obama started as a community organizer, which according to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals “the community organizer … must first rub raw the resentments of the people; fan the latent hostilities to the point of overt expression.”  So, it was Obama’s job to get people riled up and agitate them until they become so upset about their condition that they take collective action to put pressure on local, state, or federal officials to fix a problem.

Basically, to the Left, the only people who should be taken seriously when protesting are other Leftists.  They cover anti-war, pro-abortion, immigration and environmental protests with fawning coverage and respect. But when Conservatives are concerned about the direction of the country due to out of control spending and the higher taxes that are sure to come, they are accused of being “angry mobs” who are “inciting violence.”

Amazing.
