Some stories describe this guy as an “Obama fanatic.” Apparently this nut threatened Sheriff Joe Arpaio because Arpaio is investigating Obama’s birth certificate.
What if this guy had been a Rush Limbaugh fan and threatened some Democratic sheriff? We’d hear no end of bellyaching from the media about how Rush is creating a “climate of hate.”
Remember how quick the media was to blame the right and the Tea Party when Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot? I distinctly remember watching a panel on some political talk show and all the liberals were rushing to judgment. Here’s an example of the kind of blindly partisan nonsense that was being said at the time.
(The “blame the right” theme started to die out when we found out what Jared Lee Loughner was really like.)
The hypocrisy and the double standards are blatant.
