A Walk Down Memory Lane of Democrat Violence

As Democrats wet themselves over alleged threats, it's interesting to note how silent they were when their own make threats and actually carried them out.
Sen. Mary Landrieu threatened the president of the United States with physical violence on Sunday, saying that if he or any other government official criticizes New Orleans police for failing to keep civil order in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina - "I might likely have to punch him - literally."

"If one person criticizes [our sheriffs], or says one more thing, including the president of the United States, he will hear from me - one more word about it after this show airs and I - I might likely have to punch him - literally," Landrieu railed on "ABC's "This Week."
Funny, but I don't remember this being headline news.

Back in 2004, five Kerry-Edwards staffers slashed tires of Republicans workers. Again, scant coverage was given to these acts of violence.
Five Kerry-Edwards campaign staffers, including the sons of two prominent Milwaukee Democrats, were charged Monday with the election day tire slashings of 25 get-out-the-vote vehicles rented by Republicans.
The men charged with flattening 40 tires include Michael Pratt, 32, the son of former Acting Mayor Marvin Pratt, and Sowande A. Omokunde, 25, the son of U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee). According to the criminal complaint filed in the case, the five men conspired, without the knowledge of top Democratic Party officials, to plaster Republican Party headquarters on W. Capitol Drive with Democratic signs and stickers, something they dubbed Operation Elephant Takeover.
A pro-life protester was spit on at an Obama rally in 2009. Was that top news?

Most recently, black tea partier Kenneth Gladney was assaulted by Obama thugs from SEIU. Was that the lead story on all the networks?

Contrast these acts of violence perpetrated by Democrats and their thugs with the amount of hysterical reaction to some isolated and, dare I say, possibly fabricated incidents this week and tell me how fair and balanced the media coverage is.

H/T to Patrick Read for the reminders.

Glenn Reynolds also reminisces. Let's not forget hate crime hoaxes perpetrated by the left. Need more evidence? How about all the mugshots of liberals gone wild?
