Suppressing Dissent by Blaming Dissenters for Criminal Acts of Others

This is becoming a routine tactic of the Left - attempting to shut down any dissent by blaming writers and anyone else who expose the lies and threats posed by the Left.

When Anders Breivik slaughtered students and adults at the Utoya Socialist indoctrination camp in Norway, writers and Bloggers such as Fjordman and Gates of Vienna were not only blamed by the Leftist media, nut Fjordman himself was the subject of an investigation by police.

When Representative Gabby Giffords and others were shot by another crazed individual in 2011, those who had spoken out and written about the dangers of the direction in which the US was being taken were also immediately described as being virtual accessories (if not outright instigators of) the crime - this while the gunman himself clearly had no agenda that was even remotely associated with those who were blamed.

The attack on the US consulate in Benghazi was also originality attributed to a video that did not paint a rosy picture of Mohammed.

The intention of these acts is not hard to figure out; the Left wants people to be fearful of speaking out against their agenda lest they wind up being blamed for instigating criminal acts.

Now, Alex Jones of InfoWars is the target - and this is not his first time either:

"The emerging narrative in the Las Vegas shooting now includes Alex Jones.

Raw Story, a liberal news blog, has placed Jones at the center of the controversy. “Jerad Miller outlined his political views, which were largely based on conspiracy theories promoted by Fox News and Alex Jones, in his social media postings, and he posted frequently about firearms and violent revolution,” writes Travis Gettys.
Jones and the liberty movement will now be implicated in the murder of police officers by way of insinuation. This is a repeated pattern.

In 2009, following the shooting death of three officers in Pittsburgh by Richard Poplawski, the corporate media attempted to affix blame on Jones.

“Believing most media were covering up important events, Mr. Poplawski turned to a far-right conspiracy Web site run by Alex Jones, a self-described documentarian (sic) with roots going back to the extremist militia movement of the early 1990s,” Dennis R. Roddy wrote for Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Muriel Kane, writing for Raw Story, and Eric Boehlert’s blog on the Media Matters website referenced the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story in an effort to connect Alex Jones to the shooting.........."
