So it turns out the shooter, excuse me, “alleged shooter” at the Family Research Council in Washington DC said “I don’t like your politics,” before opening fire.

Long decrying so-called “hateful rhetoric” from the right, the left has blamed us for everything from the Gabby Giffords shooting to the Aurora massacre. So where is the left now? Where are the liberals saying “hateful rhetoric” from the left caused this “tragedy?”

Where are the lefties decrying the labeling of FRC a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center?

Since the beginning of the Occupy Movement, and all the leashed violence across the nation it generated, I’ve waited and watched, wondering when the real violence would begin. So you tell me, is this the beginning? Will the left, so enamored of an ideology which has killed millions across the world, finally show their true colors?

It is not the right which has labeled their political opponents “hate groups.” It is not the right which has consistently demonized their political opponents as racists, misogynists and homophobes. It is not the right which has consistently painted their political opponents as not just wrong, not just misguided, but as evil.
