I hope everyone has seen the flashback video of Piers Morgan telling Mark Kelly that Sarah Palin should call Kelly’s wife, Rep. Gabby Giffords, to apologize for her alleged role in creating the “Climate of Hate” that led to the Tucson shooting.
If not, give it a couple of spins while you listen to Morgan whining and crying like a pitiful wretch, now that L.A. spree killer Chris Dorner specifically named Piers Morgan as one of his inspirations. Time to live up to your own standards, Piers. Get on the phone and start apologizing to the families of Dorner’s victims for your role in the murders. Do it live on the air, and maybe you can squeeze out a few more ratings points for CNN.
I am not going to say that the people Dorner praised and followed were responsible for his actions. That was reprehensible slander when the Left was doing it; in fact, it borders on totalitarianism, and if you reread some of the stuff liberals were writing in the days after the Tucson shootings, it’s debatable which side of the border they were on. (Never mind that they had to fabricate the supposed connection between right-wing Tea Party types and the bizarre Jared Loughner out of thin air.)
But people like Piers Morgan who specifically labored to create this Climate of Hate narrative, and use it to silence those they disagree with? They deserve to suffer under the rules they wrote, at least for a little while. They won’t learn anything, but maybe their readers and viewers will.
