Blood Libel Is In The Leftist Bible
It appears to be one that book’s commandments.
Lately, the Blood Libel that conservatives like Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and the TEA Party folks caused Jared Loughner to murder and severely wound a bunch of people in Tucson has been broadcast from all of the stations on the leftside of the dial [see Matt’s splendid and thorough aggregation here].
The latest broadcast comes from the mouth of one Barbara Ehrenreich, who, along with Frances Fox Piven, is an honorary Chair* of the Democratic Socialists Of America. In an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, Mzzz. Ehrenreich defends Comrade Piven, who has been criticized for calling for violent clashes, ala Greece, in the streets of America and declares that this country is a ‘tyranny of the heavily armed’.
Donald Douglas has the details here, along with some spot-on analysis.
As for Comrade Barbara’s piece, well, as Stanley Kurtz wrote:
…Here you will read what the Nation crowd really thinks of America.
That’s really the only reason to read the damned thing.
Hooded protesters. Molotov cocktails. Three dead by fire, four hospitalized. This is Piven’s idea of a proper “people’s movement.” This is the kind of violence she was advocating. This is what she’d like to see happening in America, to Americans. And this is what her allies are trying to minimize, or distract attention from, by making false accusations aimed at innocent parties. Just for the record.
This is what we’re up against. The mask is off and the sun of Truth is shining. The Left is committed to the overthrow — by violence, if necessary — of The United States Of America, not just it’s government, but American Society and Culture as well.
We’ve got to wake-up our fellow citizens from their Progressive-induced Lunesta slumber to the reality that we are in the midst of a Revolution that is led by those who would destroy everything we hold dear. There can be no compromise with these seditious Jacobins.

the overthrow of The Republic while sipping
wine and easting brie.
