Conservatives Push Back on ‘Coffin Left in Congressman’s Yard’ Story
Thursday, March 25, 2010 at 9:57 am
All week I’ve been noticing pushback from conservatives on stories about angry threats to members of Congress who voted for health care reform, but nothing quite as intense as the response to Politico for reporting that “a coffin was placed on a Missouri Democrat’s lawn, another in a string of incidents against lawmakers after their vote Sunday on a health care overhaul.”
Jim Hoft, the St. Louis-based “Gateway Pundit” blogger who appeared at the rally, explains: Tea Partiers held a peaceful vigil with a coffin “to represent the millions of Americans who will suffer from inadequate treatment and perish under Obamacare.” It wasn’t a threat at all, and the coffin wasn’t left on Russ Carnahan’s lawn.
“There is nothing the democratic-media complex will not do to lie about the tea party patriots,” writes Hoft, “or to prop up these horrid leftists who are transforming our country into some kind of quasi-socialist state.”
