Governor stalked and attempted Assassination and you never heard of it. Where was the Media on this one?
Missouri’s Democratic governor Jay Nixon way back last year on September 14, 2010 life was put into jeopardy by a knife welding, bullet resistant vest wearing stalker. Casey Brezik charged the crowd welding a 6 inch knife and thinking he was slashing the throat of the Governor did cut the throat of dean Al Dimmit Jr. Governor Nixon was speaking at Metropolitan Community College when he was attacked.
Brezik was wrestled to ground and disarmed. He was summarily arrested and charged with Attempted Murder.
Now raise your hands how many of you had heard about this? Anyone....Bueller.... Bueller.
With all the hackles raised of "Right Winged" Conservative hate rhetoric you would think this would have got the ball rolling right? I mean the hateful rhetoric has been going on for years right?
Here a DEMOCRAT Governor was attacked and almost killed, surely a case could have been made that Sarah Palin caused this too.
But yet not one of the "Mainstream" media outlets had this story.
Well it is because it did not fit the template.
You see Casey Brezik was an anti-Christian, anti-capitalist leftist who participated in a number of leftwing protests. He was also a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic.
Jack Cashill, writing at the American Thinker, notes
"In his “About Me” box on Facebook, Brezik listed as his favorite quotation one from progressive poster boy, Che Guevara. The quote begins “Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism” and gets more belligerent from there. On his wall postings, Brezik ranted, “How are we the radical(s) (left) to confront the NEW RIGHT, if we avoid confrontation all together?”
As good as his word, Brezik’s marched on Toronto in June 2010 to protest the G20 Summit, where he was arrested, charged, and deported. “MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,” he boasted."
Knowing what we now know about Arizona two things become very clear. First if Governor Jay Nixon had been injured, the Mainstream media and Liberals alike would have jumped on the story lamenting the tea party movement and right winged rhetoric. Second, even if the injuries where as they were, but Casey Brezil listed himself as a Talk Radio listener or Sarah Palin fan on his Facebook wall the media would have covered it exactly the way Arizona was covered. Since, however, Brezik was a Progressive radical it apparently wasn't news worthy enough.
Now tell me again how the Teaparty folks are the radical ones?
