Democrats And Double Standards

As noted previously here, Democrats have made much of what may well have merely been simple vandalism at Congressman Tom Perriello's brother's Charlottesville home.

Today, word comes of a threat serious enough that Federal charges have been filed. A threat against a Socialist ... er, Democrat voting for BarryCare?

No. It was against Republican Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA), prominent opponent of BarryCare.

Curiously, while in high dudgeon over what may be simple vandalism with no apparent connection to the TEA Party movement, Virginia's moonbatosphere has thus far remained silent about this actual threat of politically-motivated violence.

To his credit, Doug Mataconis --- who parroted the far Left line on the Perriello story --- has reported with equal prominence the real threat against Cantor.

H/T to Drudge.

Eric Cantor isn't my congressman—Tom Perriello is. I really don't pay attention to or write about the other congressional districts in Virginia, save for the odd blog entry about Rick Boucher, since I used to live in his district.

Gee, weren't you the one who generalized about "teabaggers"?

"Teabaggers are completely ineffective in the political realm."

Gee, I guess you were.

Weren't you the one who condemned an entire "political movement" based upon your unsupported conclusion that someone in the TEA Party movement most have been responsible for this act?

"This isn’t a political movement. It’s an assassination conspiracy. It’s terrorism."

Gee, I guess you were.

It's bad enough to engage in the smear (attributing to political activists responsibility for a crime) in the first place, Waldo.

What your comment implies is just craven.
