Media Watch: Editor’s Note: An Apology To Our Readers
We’ve all heard the stories about how conservatives across the country are supposedly showing their mean and angry side at McCain-Palin rallies by shouting out things like “traitor” – and then of course there was the “kill him” comment that was either said about Bill Ayers, not Obama, or not said at all. The media has been all too eager to saturate their websites and newscasts by using comments made by a scattered few to paint and tarnish all conservatives as hateful, intolerant thugs.
With that in mind, take a look at picture Little Green Footballs linked up to of a guillotine on display at … an Obama rally in Denver, CO over the weekend, where an estimated 100K were on hand to worship The One.
Yes, I’m sure we’ll start reading stories from the media about how despicable and intolerant and hateful the far left are as a result of this in 3, 2, … /sarc
Update: Speaking of despicable and hateful, check out this article which includes a photo of a manequin dresses to look like Gov. Sarah Palin … with a noose around her neck, which is n the front yard of a West Hollywood residence. There’s another photo of a likeness of John McCain coming up from fake flames.
Hat tip to Ed Morrissey, who remarks:
You know who else sees a double standard? The artist:
“I know if we had done it with Barack Obama, people would’ve probably thrown things through our windows” Morrisette said.
Gee, you think? Instead, when it’s a Republican woman getting lynched in effigy, it suddenly becomes art and good, clean fun. Maybe we should start talking about the latent misogyny of the Left, and the drooling bigots of their enclaves. After all, if this had been an effigy of Obama in, say, Alabama, we’d certainly not be hearing about Halloween and spooky art, but instead how racist Obama’s opponents are.
