The Violent Hypocrisy of the Left


Every time someone uses violence against individuals to make a political statement, it is wrong. When the Left does it, however, all is quickly forgiven and inevitably blamed on the Right.

Michelle Malkin has put together an encyclopedic list of violent hate crimes and hate speech performed by leftists, many of which were ignored by our intrepid media outlets, and the rest of which were blamed on the Right.

As Screwtape advised young Wormwood:

Your patient must demand that all his own utterances are to be taken at their face value and judged simply on the actual words, while at the same time judging all [others'] utterances with the fullest and most oversensitive interpretation of the tone and context of the suspected intention.

Yeah, the Right has had its whackjobs. I’m not denying that. But the next time your leftist friends, family, and co-workers try to pin all violent political acts on the Right, send them this list and remind them where the majority of violence and hatred is truly coming from.

My new favorite conservative author – Robin of Berkeley


The pseudonym “Robin of Berkeley” has a very Robin Hood-esque feel to it. And as far as fugitives from the leftist sphere of thinking go, Robin is very much like Robin Hood–one who fights against the powerful on behalf of the oppressed. She’s also, possibly literally, one-in-a-million. Having once been a radical feminist who attended pro-choice rallies and anti-war demonstrations, she came to the realization that people she once shared that common bond with weren’t thinking for themselves when they began participating in Obamamania.

So, Robin did the only thing a thinking person can do. She defected to the conservatives. She realized that what she had been fighting against all those years was actually not what she was told it was by her liberal peers.  She began foraging in her local community near Berkeley for other conservatives and didn’t find very many. Over the past 2 years, though, she has found a supportive network of real conservatives…as well as a promising voice on AmericanThinker.com.

I’m just discovering her writing, but I was instantly a fan when I read these posts today:

Robin, please don’t stop writing. We the People need you.
