John Hinderaker, Hypocrite
I know the title is redundant, but here is what Hinderaker wrote after the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords:
What would have happened if the Congresswoman with whom Jared Loughner apparently had been more or less obsessed since 2007 had been a Republican? Would Republicans have blamed the Tucson murders on Democrats’ “eliminationist rhetoric”? They would have had a relatively good case…
But no: frankly, it would not have occurred to conservatives to try to make a connection between Democrats, no matter how disreputable they may be, and the act of a deranged lunatic in Arizona.
Fast forward to today:
Just as you would expect, the Democrats kept it classy last night, flooding Twitter with calls for Scott Walker and his family to be murdered. Twitchy has collected dozens of death threats.
Ah yes, the modern Democratic Party. The liberals’ rhetorical violence contrasts with Walker’s own restrained and dignified victory speech last night:
Classic Hinderaker. He claimed that conservatives would never try to make a connection between Democrats and the acts of deranged lunatics. And yet today, he does exactly that.
