Press Largely Ignored Incendiary Rhetoric at Bush Protest

News outlets that are focusing on the
incendiary rhetoric of conservatives outside President Obama’s town hall meeting
Tuesday ignored the incendiary rhetoric — and even violence — of liberals
outside an appearance by former President George W. Bush in 2002.

A description of the protest from 2002 follows:

The angry protest grew so
violent that the Secret Service was forced to take the highly
unusual step of using a backup route for Bush’s motorcade because
the primary route had been compromised by protesters, one of whom
pounded his fist on the president’s moving limousine.

All the while, angry
demonstrators brandished signs with incendiary rhetoric, such as
"9/11 – YOU LET IT HAPPEN, SHRUB," and "BUSH:
BASTARD CHILD OF THE SUPREME COURT." One sign read:
"IMPEACH THE COURT-APPOINTED JUNTA AND THE FASCIST,
EGOMANIACAL, BLOOD-SWILLING BEAST!"

Yet none of these signs were
cited in the national media’s coverage of the event. By contrast,
the press focused extensively on over-the-top signs held by Obama
critics at the president’s town hall event held Tuesday in New
Hampshire.

What is even more disturbing, is that some suspect the most vile of Obamacare
protestors are
actually Democrat plants
