The pro-assasination left

Michelle Malkin covers it. No, everyone doesn’t do it. No, its not acceptable. Much of the left is simply unhinged.

    crap crap crap crap crap. what about john cornyn’s comments justifying the assasination of judges not compliant with the christian right’s ideals? k r a p.

  2. Cornyn neither justified nor advocated. Find me a quote.

    FYI, anti-Israel folks “justify” suicide bombing saying that they have no other choice. I don’t think anything justifies intentional killing of children but I also don’t think they are pro-suicide-bombing.

    Leftists “justified” 9/11 as “blowback”…

    Cornyn, in the smarmiest coded language he thought he could get away with, tried to link the murder of judge lefkow and the courtroom violence in georgia with the notion of ‘judicial tyranny’ in a case where he didn’t like the ruling. it isn’t the fact that someone reacted in that way that illustrates a creeping ugliness at and undercurrent of rage in the republican party- it’s that a US senator said that. Creepy stuff.

    I would be surprised to hear of a congressional democrat who said that 9/11 was just dessert, or insinuate that terrorism against Israel was justified. Even if someone did say such a thing, say, in the manner which Rep. Sam Johnson had joked about nuking Syrians, vile as it would be- it would at least not be intended to destabilize one’s own government.

    I don’t think Cornyn or DeLay represent the mainstream of their party (let alone this country), but they are in offices of very high influence and were I a republican I would certainly be more worried about whatever they represent than anything found on the left.

  4. Since Josh and Robert refrain from actually quoting, I will do so. Here is what Cornyn actually said:
    Finally, I don’t know if there is a cause-and-effect connection, but we have seen some recent episodes of courthouse violence in this country — certainly nothing new; we seem to have run through a spate of courthouse violence recently that has been on the news. I wonder whether there may be some connection between the perception in some quarters on some occasions where judges are making political decisions yet are unaccountable to the public, that it builds up and builds up to the point where some people engage in violence, certainly without any justification, but that is a concern I have that I wanted to share.

    Comparing this statement to assasination advocacy makes no sense. He is talking about how the judiciary is losing respect and people are responding violently because they cannot respond legislatively. I’ll repeat the last sentence

    “certainly without any justification, but that is a concern I have that I wanted to share.”

    He is musing about issues not advocating anything.

    He is establishing a causal connection between the notion of judicial overreach and the murder of a federal judge by a deranged paranoid, and the attack on a judge by a violent criminal who was effecting his escape. I read his entire commentary already.

    It is, as you accurately said earlier, akin to someone who emphasizes US policy as the salient cause of 9/11. Although in this case, a more analogous example would be if someone had claimed that Cuba’s shooting down the plane of an anti-Castro pilot was the product of US policy in the Middle East.
