The Bottom Line on Vitriol
Thursday, August 04, 2011 9:46 AM

Its not an over the counter medication, and you can't get a prescription for it.

It's Vitriol! Used by the Left everywhere to make conservatives lose the battle of ideas.

How does it work? Well, first you have to establish a double standard. The best way to do that is to get to the media first. Then you can say whatever you want!

For instance, Senator Chuck Schumer from New York:

“The issue is not essential air service. It’s not even a labor issue. It’s the issue of hostage taking. It’s as if someone puts a gun to your head and says ‘give me your money’ and then you say, ‘why won’t you give them their money?’ You leave out the whole context that there’s being a gun held to your head and that is not fair and that is not right and yet and Harry [Reid] is right, we keep getting that situation,” he told reporters on Wednesday during a press conference at the Capitol.

You have to completely ignore the fact that one of your own caucus members was violently attacked by a lunatic with a gun, but hey! This is politics!

Next, the vitriol goes on the offensive, going out and applying the fast acting double standard by accusing conservatives of using vitriol! Such as what Debbie Wasserman-Schultz did on the Democrat officials website:

When we set out to get our country's deficit problem in order and under control, we knew that it would be a difficult debate. But I don't think anyone anticipated that our disagreements would lead to the type of vitriol and negative tone that this clip was clearly meant to incite.

Or how about the Vice President calling fiscal conservatives terrorists?

Mr. Biden’s slur was in agreement with a statement from Rep. Mike Doyle, Pennsylvania Democrat, that “We have negotiated with terrorists. This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”

Or how about the President and all the violent rhetoric he uses?

** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.” 

That's right folks! If you want to defeat the conservative message just use fast acting Vitriol, with copious amounts of Vitamin D for Double Standard!

The Bottom Line is this: Do not tell us that we are somehow a violent bunch of people who make the political climate worse with our language when you yourself are the worst at it!
