New Tone Watch: Death threat mania invades Wisconsin

Posted by: ST on March 10, 2011 at 7:07 pm

MediaDouble wowsers. Click that link, and read the multiple death threats received by GOP legislators – and the Governor himself – in Wisconsin in the aftermath of the GOP’s determined stand against outrageous union demands.

And then marvel at how the national mainstream media has been mostly silent on the violent nature of some union marchers in Madison. We all know how the MSM would be all over it with wall to wall coverage if the situations were reversed and this happened to be Tea Partiers trashing a state capitol building on the inside and out, bullying the opposition, and issuing multiple death threats to Democrat politicos.

It’s really a fascinating case study on the mostly one-sided nature of the mainstream media. They couldn’t be more obvious than if they’d stripped naked prior to starting the questioning at a random WH daily press briefing.

Be thankful for the New Media types who obtain this information first hand, at great risk of harassment – or worse. I’m not patting myself on the back, because I’m more of a commentator than a newsbreaker. But there are a lot of concerned conservative “citizen journalists” – not to mention old-fashioned reporters from the smaller talk radio stations – out there who put a lot on the line to bring you the stories the MSM won’t. A big-time salute to all of them.

    Pravda was also very silent on the abuses of the Soviet Union. Our Main Street Media learned from the best!

    It reminds me of the whiplash I nearly got from the double-standard in the coverage of Palin and Obama in the ’08 campaign.

    These guys are useless.

    Exactly, ST.
    The term ‘state run’ media isn’t a derogatory term anymore. It’s who they are.

    Cover the butts of those who would destroy America. To borrow a phrase from a recent TV ad, “It’s what we do.”

    The media is such a sorry bunch of whores, and the unionists who sent the threats should (but won’t) be prosecuted to the full extent available by law, especially the teachers.

  5. James says:

    “Those guys are (not) useless.” They have hoodwinked Americans and maybe themselves for at least forty years to achieve their goals. Now, they are desperate enough to show their true faces.

  6. if your a marxist everything you do has to advance the cause. if your a roofer, a truck driver, a teacher, an athlete, or a reporter or newscaster everything you do has to be for the greater glory of the state. the people in the media report what advances the cause and don’t report anything that doesn’t advance the cause. the current generation of media were taught well in their marxist journalism schools.

    It’s so funny to watch the “enlightened” contort themselves into full blown reactionaries.

  8. BeeKay says:

    Leeftists being violent? That never happened before…..NOT!

    Oh wait, the twentieth century is filled with example after example of how leftists turn to violence against those who disagree with them: Mao, Stalin, Pol Pot and so on and so on….

  9. PE says:

    I’m sure its obvious to the MSM that the people making these threats are victims of the incitements to violence perpetuated by conservative talk radio and Sarah Palin. Therefore, this is a perfectly ordinary phenomenom and not worth discussing.

  10. Kate says:

    They are still looking for the spit in Washington, DC and the N-word that might have been used as Nancy and her little parade marched by…too busy to cover this little hiccup of strident union entreaties to an unfair government facist in Wisconsin.

    That’s my take on this whole media debacle. Death threats, by law, must be investigated. If you leave a bomb threat in a school they go crazy! The cost of damages must be paid by the unions, too. This is vandalism. They should start proceedings to replace legislators who have gone AWOL, too. And set up special elections to replace them.

    BeeKay, you forgot the one everyone forgets when talking about socialists: Hitler!

    It’s amazing how every chance they get the left hurls the epitaph “Hitler” at their enemies, as if being one of them (a lefty) is a bad thing.

    Oh, wait! It is! And the worst thing they can think of is being one of them!
