where's the moral outrage now?

why don't i see news reports about this?... didn't we all agree that this kind of "violent rhetoric" was wrong?... why is my television mysteriously silent on the moral outrage that the Left must have for, well, the Left?

it wasn't that long ago that we heard the following:
  1. “Imagine just a few years ago had somebody walked around with images of Hitler,” says Robert Gibbs, the former White House press secretary.
  2. Eugene Robinson, “Violent political rhetoric and the threat of political violence in this country comes almost exclusively from the right.”
  3. Bill Maher, “the right wing loves, the go-to rhetoric for them is ‘wouldn’t it be fun to kill the people we disagree with.’ Left wingers don’t talk that way.”
and yet, in Wisconsin, there are protests which include rhetoric such as this:
  • Scott Walker = Adolf Hitler.
  • Midwest Mussolini.
  • Hosini Walker.
  • Raping public employees is not the way to balance a budget.
  • Don’t retreat. Reload. Repeal Walker.
  • Death to Tyrants [pictures of Mr. Walker and Mr. Mubarak]
