Let’s Take a Look At the Record

Penny Nance at Big Journalism looks at the record on violence and rumors of violence: » As Accusations of ‘Violence’ Flow, Let’s Take a Look At the Record - Big Journalism

...are the threats of violence just a charade to distract Americans from learning about what the massive healthcare bill really does? I think so.

Could you imagine what would happen if someone set fire to, say, Nancy Pelosi’s church? (Does she even go to church?)

Or what if a Congressman who supported healthcare reform was beaten up so badly that he had to have stitches on his eye? How about if a Congressman’s car window was shot out because he opposed healthcare reform?

The same media so excited to rush to protect the “defenseless” Congressmen barely mentioned that someone set Sarah Palin’s church on fire or that private citizens in California were personally harassed and targeted for simply suggesting that there should be a ballot initiative on marriage, or for donating to it.

That’s right, Sarah Palin’s church was damaged by arson after the 2008 election. One man in Modesto, CA was beaten to a pulp because he was handing out “Yes on Prop 8” stickers and a pastor’s car was shot up because he also supported a ban on gay marriage.
