More Poplawski Fallout

April 20, 2009

I penned another post to the Beaver County Times’ weblog.  I really don’t expect them to allow this one into print so I offer it here:

Update: It wasn’t printed, as have none of my posts since Monday, even though my posts were in response to questions directed to me.

The Times editorial that preceded Prose’s said, “But we also need to take a good hard look at the danger that the far right poses to our domestic tranquility…Except for brief outbreaks of left-wing violence, most recently in the late 1960s and early 1970s, political violence in the United States has been the almost exclusive domain of the right.”

To refresh everyone’s memory:
1991:   Al Sharpton mobilizes a march that degrades into the stabbing death of rabbinical student, Yankel Rosenbaum.

1995:   Al Sharpton’s fiery racial invective influences someone to burst into Freddy’s Fashion Mart, shoot four employees point-blank, and then set the store on fire.  Seven employees die in the blaze.

That’s eight deaths directly tied to one individual who definitely can’t be called right-wing.  Those eight against how many incited by Savage, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, Quinn, et. al.?  ZERO

Strange that their brand of hyperbole must be reigned in but the other brand results in no repercussions.

It couldn’t possibly be that the Times simply doesn’t talk radio’s collective   message and are using an unrelated event to fire up it’s own revolt, could it?  No, more likely, this is a last-gasp effort to discredit the one area where the MSM has not been capable of hushing conservative thought and opinion.  (And making print media obsolete.  Given that the Times is on its last legs…)
