Remember after the horrifying shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords in Arizona there was a constant stream blaming Sarah Palin and the wider Tea Party for the shooting? Of course it came out that Jared Laughner was a crazed person with mental issues, but the infamous 'Palin target map' was blamed for the shooting rather than evidence.
Now it appears that Ms. Maddow's MSNBC show has inspired the murder of three young Muslims in North Carolina. Her show, poking fun at established religions and perpetrating violent stereotypes should be held responsible in the same way she tried to shoehorn responsibility on Palin.
The shooter, Craig Stephen Hicks, was a fan of her show and various left-wing causes. It is unclear if a personal matter or his left-wing indoctrination caused the shooting. However, it becomes more clear when you see Maddow's violent imagery.
Maddow must answer for her day after day of rhetoric that clearly animated this crazed gunman.
The title of the article purports a truth, that Rachel Maddow is responsible for the Chapel Hill Shooting. The article starts out by asking us to remember that the Left had wrongly blamed Palin and the tea party for the Gifford shooting. Then it states as a matter of fact that Rachel Maddow is responsible for the Chapel Hill shooting because of her shows violent imagery. The author admits that what the Left did to Palin was wrong, then turns around and does the exact same thing to Maddow, in an attempt to prove a point I imagine. But writing an article that you know is not the truth simply to say, "See? I just did to Rachel Maddow what you guys did to Sarah Palin! I know it's not the truth, but you didn't tell the truth either! So, nyah!" is not even remotely journalism.ReplyDelete
