As Breitbart rolled off noted examples of left-wing violence against conservatives, he neglected to mention the most recent example – the brutal beating of a Governor Jindal staffer and her boyfriend in New Orleans, this past weekend, which is increasingly looking like it was politically motivated.
You know what had particular resonance with me? Breitbart’s story of his conversion to conservatism, which happened after watching the Dems and the media (but I repeat myself) smear the reputation of Justice Clarence Thomas’ during his confirmation hearings in 1991.
I was never a lib. I was a young, fairly apolitical mother of a newborn at the time, and I remember being outraged and appalled by the nasty tactics the left was employing to destroy the character of a good and decent man. What they were doing was so transparent, and so vile, this “high tech lynching” that was taking place. That’s when I discovered the Rush Limbaugh Show, and took delight in hearing my inherent conservative views espoused and defended day in and day out. That’s when I realized that there were millions more like me all across America. I’ve been hooked ever since.
