I get a big kick out of ALand’s popular, but nonetheless grossly inaccurate, false equivalency. Yes, there are nasty, putrid posts from liberals that wish people ill and employ racial, religious and misogynistic slurs. But to remark that, for example, “Sarah Palin is a moron” is not one of these, no more than asserting that “President Obama is an idiot” is a racial slur. There is, however, ample, independent recorded evidence indicating Palin is a few bricks short of a load, and so far as Obama goes - well, there’s that gaffe where he mentioned “57 States.” But even THAT is a distraction from the point. One can go to any middle of the road news site - let’s say Google, or Yahoo. (That is, each has roughly the same number of those charging that the site is “OBVIOUSLY” a puppet of one political extreme, as there are those alleging the same site - often the same story, “PROVES” it is a tool of the other political extreme.) Often the major newspaper sites are good territory, too. (Point being, this comparison will NOT work on the comment page for Glenn Beck’s “Blaze” or MSNBC’s blog posts. The audiences are too skewed.) Now, perusing the comments on that site, count the number of racial slurs, violent threats, and calls for violence against subjects of those stories. Without fail - it’s been shown over and again - the OVERWHELMING number of those are directed at “liberals,” “Democrats” and/or “progressives.” There is easily a 10 to 1 advantage by those self-identifying themselves as conservative, Republican and/or “religious” who call for the hanging, burning, shooting and so much more of the targets of their rage. They also employ terms commonly regarded as epithets (slurs), or turns on epithets or racial stereotypes, running the gamut from “mammy,” to “jokes” about watermelon. This isn’t speculation. It has been researched in-depth, and the difference is so clear it’s obvious to even the amateur who cares to check for themselves. Absolutely - remarks that Herman Caine is a clod who was never able to articulate a competent and viable economic plan will be easy to find. There’s no shortage of assertions that Rick Santorum hopes to impose his religious beliefs on the nation under federal law. But it’s far and away the Right that has a near exclusive on winners like, “The N-word cheated his way into office, and now he’s gotta die.” It’s the right that wants to “Shove something up” House Minority Speaker Pelosi. It’s the right that wants to “teach Barney Faggot a lesson with a baseball bat.” The contest isn’t even close. Your argument wouldn’t be helped even if it WASN’T true that Palin is an uninformed, pandering and opportunistic liar.
