Spinning Tucson: Krugman's toxic rhetoric | The Economist

The Economist, editorializes that recent pronouncements of the hard-left, like the disgraceful bloviating by former economist turned leftist political pundit, Paul Krugman, linking the horrific killing of individuals by a deranged gunman, is somehow the fault of conservative and right-wing speech. However, this nebulous connection that purely exists in the minds of limited number of people, is not only not reasonable, it is itself nuts and deranged.......
At this point, there is simply no sound reason to believe this deranged young man was fired up by "toxic" or "eliminationist" conservative rhetoric from Michele Bachmann or whomever. Why are we even having this conversation? It's nuts. It's offensive. Is there any, you know, evidence that political rhetoric is now more vitriolic or incendiary than usual? Maybe there is, but I know of none. A feeling in Mr Krugman's gut doesn't cut it. Doesn't it seem at least as likely that a 22-year-old would be inspired to an act of high-profile atrocity by violent video games or films? As far as I know there's no evidence of that, either.
The American left, handed a historic defeat of their beloved Democrats in the recent mid-term elections by an angry electorate, is being also being buffeted by the realization that both their Marxist Utopian "from each according to his abilities, to each according to their needs" (Karl Marx, 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program) economic program just does not work in today's world and their racial messiah, the current resident of the White House, is nothing like they expected proving not only is he not a racial healer but also his lack of experience as an administrator with real world perspective and his inability to be a true leader to all Americans has shown through in his impotent abilities outside of Marxist big government intrusions foisted onto the typical everyday life.

So, what does Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Fox News, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and any other right of center target of the frothing-at-the-mouth liberal world have to do with the recent tragic shootings in Arizona? Absolutely nothing. But the connection that these people have with the tragedy is that this event is just a convenient vehicle for hard left loons to bash their political opponents. Its truly disgusting what these Democrats have become. These tragedies are not events to try to immolate opponents but to grieve the innocent victims and to allow people to take time to heal from this atrocity. The hard left in the American political landscape is again showing their cold and stony hearts reacting in a purely partisan and political fashion and not really being humanists that they so loudly claim to be.
