New York Times Compares Tea Partiers to Weathermen

After a couple of weeks of serious threats against Republicans, in the wake of the passage of health care, the New York Times has compared the Tea Party movement with the violent 1960's-70's group, the Weathermen. The paper upped the disgust quotient by using a photo of Barack Obama's domestic terrorist friend, Bill Ayers (second from right with white shirt, dark jacket and glasses), during the Weathermen's Days of Rage.

The NYT asks When Does Political Anger Turn to Violence? It's a meaningless question if asked about Tea Partiers. The paper doesn't give a flip. They clearly understand that Tea Partiers are not violent. We are angry, but we are not violent. The media's lack of coverage of Leftist attacks

Remember the Tea Partier whose finger was bitten off by protester? Remember the Tea Party Express bus being egged by Harry Reid supporters? Remember Kenneth Gladney, a Black man who was attacked at a Missouri townhall health care protest? SEIU members demanded to know what a Black man was doing handing out "Don't tread on me" flags?" Mr. Gladney was badly beaten:
The SEIU member used a racial slur against Kenneth, then punched him in the face. Kenneth fell to the ground. Another SEIU member yelled racial epithets at Kenneth as he kicked him in the head and back. Kenneth was also brutally attacked by one other male SEIU member and an unidentified woman. The three men were clearly SEIU members, as they were wearing T-shirts with the SEIU logo.
Remember Sarah Palin telling Tea Partiers in at a Nevada rally: "It is not time to retreat. It's time reload,"and she immediately explained that her words were not a call for violence, but telling people that their "arms"[weapons] are their votes.

Remember the Left's outcry: Palin is inciting violence? CNN actually put the words "Inciting Violence" below a video of Palin.

This blog notes MSNBC's Keith Olberman tried to be balanced about Sarah's comment in Nevada: "How much more proof do we need? Palin and anybody associated with her needs to be thrown in jail immediately with no parole...."

But CNN had no problem with Obama saying this: "if they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. That's the Chicago Way!" CNN and the NYT had no problem with Barack Obama sharing an office with William "Bill" Ayers for three years. During the campaign for the 2008 elections, media didn't talk about Bill Ayers' Weathermen bombing a police station that injured man and killed the father of a little girl. Message to the NYT: You are a disgraceful, deceitful and downright untruthful rag.
