Sometimes it’s best to let the thing speak for itself:
Media Matters for America held a panel discussion on the growing culture of extremist, anti-government, and violent rhetoric in conservative media. Media Matters Senior Fellow Eric Boehlert, who has written extensively on the subject, hosted leaders from the Southern Poverty Law Center, America’s Voice, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the National Council of La Raza, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights to examine how the mainstreaming of extremism impacts our security, politics, and culture.
The video reveals grim ideologues who make the Poltiburo look like the Marx Brothers. Don’t take my word for it — watch the video, and see if you don’t recoil from the morbid, suffocating attitude of these would-be Grand Inquisitors. Nancy M. Zirkin of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights appears as stiff and congealed as an embalmed corpse, and her denunciation of the “hounds of intolerance” (??@@!!) sounds as if it were voiced by one of those creepy Chuck E. Cheese animatronic critters on low batteries.
Listen in on Adam Luna of America’s Voice as he equates dissent against Wall Street’s Open Borders agenda with criminal violence (about 3:48 in):
“Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Lou Dobbs, Pat Buchanan — they say the exact same things, so while there’s a strong campaign to distance the organizational connections between people, the one thing that links them all is their speech — what they say to incite a group of people to take action on Congress to stop progressive legislation from happening, but that climate, that language, is also seen in the folks who act out very violently.”
In other words:
1 – There’s a vast conservative conspiracy to hide the assumed connections between border security activists and murderers. (Unspoken: Pointing out the real connections between La Raza and the reconquista MEChA is an act of racism.)
2 – Anyone who works legally through the political system by petitioning their representatives in government to “stop progressive legislation” have been “incited” to do so. Meaning they’re so pliable they’re not worthy of participation in civic affairs.
3 – Murdering Latinos and opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants stem from the same rhetoric and are therefore morally equivalent.
But here’s my favorite part — Clarissa Martinez of La Raza denounces the “freedom” of anti-amnesty activists to air their opinions:
“I’ve been shocked to the extent that people are saying things unchecked because they’re making money.”
While Martinez demands censorship of those who dissent from the globalist agenda, Heidi Beirich slumps forward in her seat, stewing in outrage at those crazed right-wingers and murderous nativists. Yes, isn’t it horrible people are allowed to make money from sensationalism?
