The yawping among the Pavlovian dogs of the Left has commenced – not at all unexpected, but tiresome, to say the least. Already, the murder of the security guard at the Holocaust Museum is being linked to everything from the Tea Party protests to the “extremism” of Rush Limbaugh. This makes about as much sense as saying that Keith Olbermann is responsible for the Muslim convert who shot two army recruiters in Arkansas.
Dan Collins shrewdly observes that, based on the known facts, the assassin sounds “rather like Ahmadinejad, except that he’s a White Supremacist rather than an Islamist”. In other words, we conservatives can, and should – and I certainly do, without reservation or qualification - condemn the crime and the criminal, without feeling compelled to publicly take a loyalty oath to the Constitution and the rule of law.
