'A Silly Game of Connect the Dots'

Jonah Goldberg, on the political babble, dribble, drool, and spew from the Left over the Holocaust Museum violence and murder:

"Now we have James von Brunn. He is an 88-year-old loon, considered a dangerous nut even within the dangerous-nut community. He took his gun and shot up the Holocaust Museum and murdered a guard. Reporting suggests that von Brunn wanted to fulfill his revenge fantasies against the Jewish-neocon globalist cabal, which apparently outsources much of its work to the Bush family.

A 9/11 truther, convinced that the bagel-snarfing, string-pulling Jooooooooooozzz are behind everything, von Brunn is the kind of fanatic the zombies who talk to themselves at the bus station would give a wide berth.

But, of course, we have Sarah Palin to thank for von Brunn. So says some genius at the Daily Kos. A competing braniac at the Huffington Post says, 'Thank you very much Karl Rove and your minions.'

Pretty much the entire media establishment is comfortable labeling von Brunn as a member of the 'far right.' Putting aside other objections to that nomenclature, if von Brunn is a member of the far right, then it would be helpful and journalistically responsible if the press would start calling Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Sean Hannity, et al., moderates and centrists.

That won't happen, because the whole point of these exercises is to paint the right as an undifferentiated blob of evil........

.......Maniacs like von Brunn connect dots that aren't there because that's what paranoid anti-Semites do. What's the left's excuse?"



  1. .......Maniacs like von Brunn connect dots that aren't there because that's what paranoid anti-Semites do. What's the left's excuse?"

    I'm not sure exactly what Von Brunn's motive was other than to make a big splash leaving this world, and to me his philosophy seems more left than right, the left being much more violent. More importantly where is the outrage and the debate about a whacked out Muslim that murders a US Soldier, hardly a whisper, if it weren't for Fox news we'd probably would have never know about it. Beau

  2. The murder of a US soldier is ignored by the the leftward minions

    Unlike the murder of an abortionsit, or the murder of a museum guard by a certified whacko like von Brunn, the soldier's death offers the Usual Subjects no opportunity to take advantage of a victim.

    The military are not the type of people "progressives" can marginalize by using identity politics to paint them as victims that can only be helped by "progressive" politicians and panderers.
