The Guardian misleads readers with story about the SPLC

The  UK Guardian picked up the Southern Poverty Law Center story and ran with it under the misleading headline “Inside the world of Obama’s secret-service bodyguards”.  Their story has almost nothing to do with how the secret service is protecting Obama and almost every thing to do with right wing extremism as defined in the SPLC report. But as typical with the media, the facts can’t get in the way of the story they want to tell.

Apparently everyone believes that if anything happens to this president it will be at the hands of some right wingnut, as they define whatever that  is. But this morning at Red State, Erick Erickson does a fine job defining the real origin of violence in the name of politics.

It’s been conveniently ignored that Joe Stack, the Texas pilot who flew into the IRS offices, was quoting Marx in his final missive. That fact doesn’t fit the narrative that the media has already written, so they just leave that out.

Scapegoating the right – an Alinsky tactic – will continue to be the statist media’s plan of action.
