Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Left wing journalist accuses arsonist who firebombed MO Democrat’s office of being Tea Party activist, then says Tea Party can’t “take a joke”


A writer for a St. Louis alternative newsweekly tells The Daily Caller he does not regret speculating in a story that the suspect of an attempted arson of a Democratic congressman’s campaign office was a Tea Party activist.It turns out that the suspect in this week’s firebombing of Democratic Rep. Russ Carnahan’s campaign office in St. Louis was actually a liberal blogger and former paid campaign worker for Carnahan’s campaign.

“As to the legions of Tea Party adherents who are calling for my head: No, I have no regrets. I was having fun — at their expense,” River Front Times reporter Chad Garrison said in an email.

Outrage with Garrison comes from this paragraph in an article he penned about the incident. “Given what we know of him — 50, white, angry — he certainly fits the demographics of a Tea Party member.”

Garrison said his report was a “joke” and was not meant literally. He pointed to another section of the same story where he wrote: “On second thought, maybe he’s not a Tea Party member. Firebombing your opponent’s office seems a little too, um, sane for that group.”

On Thursday, Garrison said, “you’d have to be quite the literalist to believe I was actually accusing anyone of a crime. Then again, it’s becoming ever clearer that these are people who can’t take a joke and who have no emotion other than blind outrage and indignation.”

I have never been accused of being “humor-impaired”, but I don’t think I get the joke here.  I’m missing the punchline or something.

OK, let me try a joke in the mold of this Garrison fellow:

A Republican and a Democrat walk into a bar the day after the 2010 midterm elections.  The Republican asks the Democrat, “Say, how does my backside taste?”  The Democrat says, “F### you!”  😆

Get it?  “How does my backside taste?”  A retort with an invitation to self-fornicate?  How funny is that?  😆

As the first commenter points out at the blog, the MSM and the left (pardon the redundancy) is 0-for-5 in pushing the “Tea Party is violent” meme.  Let’s recap, shall we?

1.  Swarms of angry white Tea Party activists descended on Capitol Hill and called a group of black Democrat Congressmen the “N” word.  Problem is, there is NO evidence that this occurred.  Andrew Breitbart offered a $100k reward if anyone could produce any video/audio evidence that it really happened, and thus far, Breitbart’s wallet has not gotten $100k lighter.

2.  The Times Square Bomber was supposed to have been a Tea Party activist, mad at the passage of ObamaCare.  Turns out it was another bloodthirsty camelhumping Islamofascist.  Who knew, right?

3.  Last week’s cabbie stabber was supposed to be some right-wing intolerant Islamophobe nutbar.  Turns out that guy was a liberal activist.  Ouch.

4.  The nutbar who flew his plane into the Austin, TX, IRS building was allegedly a Tea Party type.  Turns out that guy was a communist, i.e. a left-winger.

5.  The above story, in Missouri.

You would think that as hard as the MSM tries its level best to accuse the Tea Party types of being rabid racists and violent whack-a-doodles, they could find at least ONE case where it’s true.  I mean, at least ONE?  Try as they might, though, they can’t do it.

  2. That journalist and I use the term journalist rather loosely is a tool for his boss. He’s not fooling anyone with common sense!

  3. Garrison’s response is the typical liberal/socialist bloviating adolescent subterfuge that is expected whenever they are confronted by facts or are called upon to defend their position on anything.

  4. […] morons are shameless, hypocritical, and never learn (regardless of how many times their narrative gets blown to hell), do […]
