Malkin: The progressive “climate of hate"

Michelle Malkin:
The Tuscon massacre ghouls who are now trying to criminalize conservatism have forced our hand.
They need to be reminded. You need to be reminded.
Confront them. Don’t be cowed into silence.
And don’t let the media whitewash the sins of the hypocritical Left in their naked attempt to suppress the law-abiding, constitutionally-protected, peaceful, vigorous political speech of the Right.
They want to play tu quo que in the middle of a national tragedy? They asked for it. They got it.

VI. OPEN-BORDERS HATE
VII. ANTI-MILITARY HATE
VIII. HATE: CRIMES — the ever-growing Unhinged Mugshot Collection
Read the rest.

Seriously Michelle must not have slept the whole weekend. A truly great post.

Update" And don't miss Protein Wisdom's post on the fallacy of "limiting" speech.

Having myself been told that my offering to bring a tree to my own rhetorical hanging was concomitant with issuing a “death threat,” I can point first hand to the potential dangers of empowering some collection of motivated “interpreters” to decide what is or isn’t threatening — and then having law enforcement power to act on that policing of my speech.

This way lies madness and totalitarianism, friends.
