With the massacre in Tucson we’ve discovered that progressives have something akin to a pathological disorder when it comes to evaluating free speech. Particularly speech that doesn’t paint progressives in glowing terms, it appears.
Everyone from the Democratic Tucson sheriff to liberals Keith Olbermann, Paul Krugman and Katie Couric to the New York Times accused Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin of all but pulling the trigger. Basically.
They rushed to declare that “hate speech” of the conservative right drove this young man to take up a gun and murder six people, including a 9-year-old girl and a federal judge. Palin, who Olbermann and others of his ilk have deemed too dumb to shoot caribou and chew gum at the same time, used her powerful mind control tricks, one supposes, to place Jared Loughner in a killing trance.
We’ve since learned the alleged shooter didn’t listen to talk radio or the news. He’s just evil.
