Video: So, what’s it like to have a Democratic colleague tell you “You are f***ing dead”?

posted at 4:13 pm on March 1, 2011 by Allahpundit

Presumptive answer to the question posed in the headline: “Ask anyone who’s worked with Rahm Emanuel.” The story of Gordon Hintz’s meltdown on the Wisconsin assembly floor broke yesterday via radio host Charlie Sykes; today, inevitably, comes the conservative media tour for Hintz’s target, GOP Rep. Michelle Litjens, to share what she’s learned about the Party Of Civility™. Three quickie points from the two clips below, one from Fox News and the other from Laura Ingraham’s radio show. First, as Litjens herself notes, although Hintz’s outburst happened several days ago, he didn’t get around to apologizing to her until Sykes started talking about this on Monday. Fancy that. Second, the Hintz incident itself is less alarming than what she says about needing a police escort in the Capitol. There were reports last week of Walker phoning Republican senators to warn them that their safety couldn’t be assured; this is how far it’s gone, evidently. And third, needless to say, after the left’s grotesque, groundless demagoguery of the Tucson shooting as some sort of indictment of Republican rhetoric, conservative media will happily grind their faces in each and every bit of incivility expressed by union protesters or their apologists. The videos and photos of protesters with incendiary signs are already old hat after two weeks, but for righties forever tarred with the worst excesses of cranks who show up at tea party rallies, the appetite for liberal hypocrisy is insatiable.

A funny bit not to be missed: At 5:40 of the second clip, Ingraham asks Litjens what the statehouse smells like these days. How … uncivil.

It smells like a latrine. However, the leftie rats feel perfectly at home skiing and eating the slush.

It is pointless to try and hold the MSM to their own standards – they don’t care! Of course they know they treat Republicans differently, it is all intentional.

What? Doesn’t everyone make death threats to their colleagues when they disagree at work?

“So I think we should take the Smith Co. bid.”
“You’re f***ing dead.”

“So we were thinking of having the company picnic over at Independence Park.”
“You’re f***ing dead.”

“We’re gonna make a few changes to the invoicing system.”
“You’re f***ing dead.”

“Could you call custodial and tell them there’s no toilet paper in the 2nd floor restroom?”
“You’re f***ing dead.”

See? It happens all the time.

Advice to the assemblywoman: A Colt 9mm is a great equalizer. Remember God made man but Sam Colt made them equal

jerryofva on March 1, 2011 at 5:59 PM

The word hypocrisy has been so misused by the media that it has lost its punch. A pastor who is caught in an affair is not really hypocritical…he may be weak, failing to live up to his own hopes, sinful, etc., but not hypocritical.

But the left are hypocritical…ie they lie thru there teeth about what others should do, even while having no intention to live by the same rules….per Wikipedia:

Hypocrisy is the state of pretending to have beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that one does not actually have. Hypocrisy involves the deception of others and is thus a kind of lie.

Hypocrisy is not simply failing to practice those virtues that one preaches.

Sorry for the long post, but they also have a quote:

Samuel Johnson made this point when he wrote about the misuse of the charge of “hypocrisy” in Rambler No. 14:

Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practice; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory, as a man may be confident of the advantages of a voyage, or a journey, without having courage or industry to undertake it, and may honestly recommend to others, those attempts which he neglects himself.[1]

Thus, an alcoholic’s advocating temperance, for example, would not be considered an act of hypocrisy so long as the alcoholic made no pretense of constant sobriety.

What we have is a set of people whose main goal is to subordinate other people (and their money) to their own interests.

Same hate, same bullying, same f-word, same death threat. The guy should go, he should resign or be made to resign. He’s a sick guy. Union-supporting thug mobster.

ProudPalinFan on March 1, 2011 at 5:44 PM

Sorry to hear that. In my book, the very first rule of being a man is defending a lady. The very first lady to defend is a man’s wife, or his mother if he doesn’t have a wife. Sisters, friends, coworkers follow, but a man who won’t defend a lady isn’t a man.

As a Christian in the U.S. Navy, I bore my share of personal attacks. You could badmouth me, you could badmouth God, and it didn’t raise a reaction from me. No matter what someone said about me, I’d been called worse by better. And God surely can take care of Himself, and any moron dumb enough to yank His chain. But badmouth my wife, and there is pain in your immediate future.

Just saying.
