More Hypocrisy: Blood Libel


Yesterday, in the New York Times, former Congressman Paul Kanjorski (D-PA), who lost his reelection bid for a fouteenth term last November, said the following in an op-ed…

“We all lose an element of freedom when security considerations distance public officials from the people. Therefore, it is incumbent on all Americans to create an atmosphere of civility and respect in which political discourse can flow freely, without fear of violent confrontation.”

Huh!  A funny thing happened on the way to the Times.  Just before he was ousted from Congress, Kanjorksi said this about then-candidate Rick Scott (R-FL), who successfully ran for Governor of Florida…

“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida. Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him.”

Hypocrite, party of one?

    Is there really no one on the right who actually knows what a “blood libel” is?

      Where as the term “blood libel” is not being used acturately here today or in the media, people will be searching the Interwebs for this term. That will allow them to come across my little blog post.

      For the record, blood libel is the false and sensationalized allegation that a person or religous minority group (read: Jews) engages in human sacrifice.

    Really? I get the hypocrisy & advocating violence is always wrong but that’s it? I mean this blog post is somewhat juvenile. I’d expect something more substantive than “look what he did.”

      Sean, it’s really a supplement to my post from yesterday, whic is more substantive. However, as the left continues to act as if this is a one way street, as I find moments of hipocricy on this issue, I will post them. There is plenty of blame to go around. Hope you’re well.

    I wonder how much of the hate and vitriol during the Bush presidency, contributed to this? The way you hear the Left crying crocodile tears about it, only the Right is ever angry. The Left is always civil, peaceful, and agreeable. Simply disagree with one and you’ll see.
