Paul Krugman Comments On Shooting, Blames Republicans For "Hate-Mongering"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Just posted by Paul Krugman, who apparently doesn't need to hear the facts before blasting away at Republicans.

From the NYT:

We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was. She’s been the target of violence before.
And for those wondering why a Blue Dog Democrat, the kind Republicans
might be able to work with, might be a target, the answer is that she’s a
Democrat who survived what was otherwise a GOP sweep in Arizona,
precisely because the Republicans nominated a Tea Party activist. (Her
father says that “the whole Tea Party” was her enemy.) And yes, she was on Sarah Palin’s infamous “crosshairs” list.

Just yesterday, Ezra Klein remarked that opposition to health reform was getting scary.
Actually, it’s been scary for quite a while, in a way that already
reminded many of us of the climate that preceded the Oklahoma City
bombing.

You know that Republicans will yell about the evils of partisanship
whenever anyone tries to make a connection between the rhetoric of Beck,
Limbaugh, etc. and the violence I fear we’re going to see in the months
and years ahead. But violent acts are what happen when you create a
climate of hate. And it’s long past time for the GOP’s leaders to take a
stand against the hate-mongers.

Update: I see that Sarah Palin has called the
shooting “tragic”. OK, a bit of history: right-wingers went wild over
anyone who called 9/11 a tragedy, insisting that it wasn’t a tragedy, it
was an atrocity.

Update: I’m going to take down comments on this one;
they would need a lot of moderating, because the crazies are coming out
in force, and it’s all too likely to turn into a flame war.

Paul Krugman should concentrate more on why he is a proponent of bubbles. His inflationary strategies are causing massive worldwide hunger due to inflated food prices:

What a fucking asshole The Great Douchebag is. Its as if he'd written this column months ago, waiting to publish it when something like this happened.

In 1981, Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley. In the immediate aftermath, did "right-wingers" attempt to pin blame upon Jimmy Carter, Tip O'Neill and Walter Mondale? Of course not. And its a good thing they didn't because we soon found out that the deranged Hinckley was simply trying to impress Jodie Foster.

Assholes like The Great Douchebag are some of the most vile, disgusting beings wealking the face of the earth.

The best way to mobilize and control the population is to make them think there is an external threat that demands both their labor and their submission to fight.

There have been WAY to many instances of both liberals and neoconservatives both talking about and USING such methods for that to simply be dismissed as a fantasy.

Exactomundo,'

But violent acts are what happen when you create a climate of hate.

Your ilk, and your party is the REASON for the hate.

You SCREAM from the rooftops your agendas, and when 70% of Americans DO not want what your selling, you call them haters,and rednecks, and stupid.

The thought never crosses your ilks mind,that as the minority, and holding radical Anti American views, your the CAUSE for the acts.

Your vitriol, and anti American views, bring these things on.

Your the match, that lights the flame.

His?

I missed something.

As far as it can be told, the strategies are the US citizens' strategies. They are carried out by the man in charge of carrying out this type of strategies: Ben Bernanke.

This Kurgmann person is only a commentator which has no power in the implementation of the strategies.

These strategies are nothing new to the US and are commonly performed by the US to open up markets.

That just means there aren't enough left wing revolutionaries in this country. thyere are times when the "right" gets it right. To be honest I expected this much earlier. When do you think happens when people startt o realize that the very people they elected do represent their interests. that no matter what they represent the interests of the oligarchy. We got rid of england for less that our own government is doing to the majority of americans economically. So, Why isn't it happening more, and why isn't there a legit resistance group in america. These are the questions I wonder.

 

the american people are at war with their own government and the banksters. we are loosing. I have said this for years. So, should it surprise anyone that this happened. I still am amazed there has been so little violence.

I wonder when people are going to get so fed up with Obama's continued handing over this nation to thre banksters that they take to the streets. 

I came to the conclusion long ago that the current system would only change after violence. the issue will be willn the troops shoot the citizens, or realize their actions are justified in getting rid of a facist kleptocracy.

"...the issue will be willn the troops shoot the citizens, or realize their actions are justified in getting rid of a facist kleptocracy."

I think they are with us.

There is only maybe one standing division (no names) that would obey an order to shoot civilians...and the line officers would soon stop following the generals orders.

The National Guard (theoretcally) could be used across state lines, Michigan troops policing Fla. for example (so brother won't have to shoot brother) but soon this too would stop as, in the end, they are us.

They (officers & soldiers) are sworn to protect the Constitution...not necessarily the leaderships orders...they are also instructed to only obey what they deem as lawful orders, I know a few low ranking ones...they're good people.

The drones are a different deal...but again, the anymosity between the CIA/NSA etc. and the military (basically, us) has a long history of only grudgingly working together.

Just my thoughts on it.

Whoa pony.  Drop the BS.  Olberman, Maddow et al carry strong opinions but you never never hear any of the cloaked violence from them.  You do not hear the Beck-anese call to arms and the slanderous accusations.  The entire posture of the highest GOP figureheads has, at the best been quiet acceptance of their parties' extreme fringes, and at the worst support of these radicals.  The GOP party wants this violence and condones this violence.  Our new figurehead speaker of the house, asked if he would suggest to his house members who carry the O'B not a citizen banner to drop the BS and begin concentrating on the real issues this country faces drawled that everyone has different opinions and it was not his right to tell others what to think.  That statement was the GOP in a clam shell- they WANT the anger, distruct and hatred.  Go the F ahead and junk me.  You need to open your eyes and see we all are in this ballgame together.  Different sides of the bleachers but the same game.  And the hatred and violence against one another makes us weaker at a time when we need to band together to survive what is becoming an invasion of our citizens' rights..

Beck is a CIA misinfo specialist. He is the one who bagged on Ron Paul for so long and he also was dead set against the tea party and he used to call them government haters etc. But they figured they would run him as  a kind of Alex Jones type on MSM to garner the support of any of the "conservative" sheep who are listening to other voices these days, and trying to put it all together because even to complete idiots, something is just not right with the political system and many of the sheep understand this and are searching diligently for a answer, so they listen to Beck, the man for all seasons, who suddenly sprung up on Faux news, just in time, I might add, ready with all of the answers that the dumbed down, but searching sheep are looking for. So now these sheep talk in silly terms such as progressives and communist etc and go after silly targets , men who are very small in the loop, so to speak, and all of the while the boys at the FED rob them blind and yet Beck blames it all on the "progressives" .  Fifty million a year to do that job. Not bad for a washed up radio disk jockey who had hit bottom and was about to take himself out( by his own words, also, which anyone who listens to his show, has to put up to listeing to this basket case of a man , day in and day out) etc.

Who said I watched EITHER of these clowns?  I have seen both of their programs, I have actually watched all of these idiots a few times, Madcow, Olbermoron, and Beck...Cannity and blowhard the Irish.

What you said was that Beck was a hate-fest.  What you said is a LIE.  You fucking got that?

When challenged on your statement, you resort to backtracking, strawmanning, and a host of other logical fallacies.

It doesn't matter whether I am a fan of the moron Glenn Beck or not; what you said is FALSE.  So you either PUT UP or shut the fuck up.

Glenn Beck is a MORON, not a hater.  He's a moron, just like you are.  The problem with you is that you are too STUPID to figure out that if I challenge YOUR statement, I am NOT endorsing Glenn Beck!  I can despise him fifty TIMES as much as you do, and your statement would STILL BE FALSE, you fkin idjit.

I dislike Beck as much as the next guy and the guy after that but i have watched him a few times and while he seems apocolpyptic in some ways I dont ever recall him making veiled references to violent revolution or "second amendmend remedies."

Fuck, don't you two see how pathetic you are?

Are you a close, personal friend of the shooter? If not, there is no possible way for you to have any idea what his motives are at this point. You are simply jumping to conclusions because the victim is a democrat.

Did John Hinckley shoot Reagan because he was a left-wing nutjob with an agenda? Of course not! He was a mentally-ill individual who was trying to impress Jodie Foster. An actress he didn't even know. This shooter will likely be shown to be mentally ill, too.

Interesting side note. Bush family were friends with the Hinkley family going back to the days, when they were neighbors in Houston. Hmmm, maybe Bush Sr, wanted to be President real bad. I am just sayin...........It is a known fact that Reagan and Bush hated each other's guts even though they were on the same zionist team, more or less.

Beck does not promote hate. If anything he exposes how the puppeteers have historically pit one group against another and benefit from the mayhem. You are spitting venom in all directions instead of focusing on the actions of the perp(s). He or they deserve the blame, not people with whom you disagree.  You and Krugman would get along just fine.

I do not watch Tv because it is for idiots.  The woman who was shot is a conservative Democrat and the shooter is a liberal Democrat.  He had a drug arrest and was a Daily Kos poster.  Supposedly he was angry because Giffords did not vote with Pelosi.

Your birth was a cruel trick on you. 

The kid listed The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf as some of his favorite books.   He also has a flag burning video on his You Tube account and most people think he is in the video but the person is covered up.   Name any Tea Party types who identify with those books or who are into flag burning?  I mean flag burning is like a childish prank by someone trying to get attention. 

Ms. Giffords is a blue dog Democrat who voted against Pelosi on multiple times, she was one of the House members reading The Constitution in the House this past week and is well liked by House Speaker John Boehner.  The shooter is not a conservative - he is a Dem. Nice try.

The essence of a free society is one in which people are free to live their lives any way they choose, so long as their conduct is peaceful. Freedom necessarily entails the right to make choices that other people find offensive, abhorrent, unpopular, and irresponsible. If people are free only to make the correct choices, then they are not truly free.

Maybe it was Judge John Roll who was the 'target' not the Congresswoman.

From Judgepedia

Judge Roll in 2009, faced death threats after presiding over a $32 million civil-rights lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by illegal immigrants against an Arizona rancher. After Judge Roll ruled the case would be certified, threats came from talk-radio shows which fueled controversy and spurred audiences into making threats against the judge
