    Wisdom from Media Matters on scoring political points from violence

    Wisdom from Media Matters on scoring political points from violence

    This was the tweet sent out by Media Matters when a radical environmentalist took hostages at the Discovery Channel in September 2010, and there was a concern about how violence by a “liberal” would be portrayed in the media:

    Everyone has to shut up now and get with the program because god forbid free speech incite some lunatic to over the top?

    Lunatic: It’s the leftists’ fault because of what they do.

    Leftists: It’s the rightsters’ fault because of what they say.

    bleached cat, you weren’t “gullible”, you were rational. What’s the old saying about “when you hear hoof beats, think horses, not zebras”? There’s a constant “hoof beat” of jihadi attacks with bombs, random shootings, knifings, arson… so another event sure does seem to fit the pattern, and it doesn’t mean you’re an idiot to recognize it.

    The idiots are the ones who see a handful of incidents among thousands and discern a pattern THERE.

    As for the monster in this case, well — let me know when this monster is giving commencement speeches for conservative universities, or holding an endowed chair at a university, or non-lefties do anything but wonder why he’s not getting the death penalty. He *may* share some beliefs with me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want him put down; I’ve yet to hear of a lefty terrorist that doesn’t end up a hero.
