Here We Go Again

It looks like racist fliers, falsely attributed to a conservative group, posted around George Washington University will be yet another chance for the RWM to get its panties in a bunch over nothing:

Seven leftist students have since come forward to take credit for creating and posting the fliers. One of the students, Brian Tierney, is a self-described socialist who fantasizes about lining up George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Paul Wolfowitz in front of a firing squad. Another student, Adam Kokesh, is currently being prosecuted for defacing public property during an anti-war rally. Overall, the GWU seven aren't the sharpest utensils in the drawer. They claimed the flier was "expos[ing] the upcoming Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week sponsored by the GWU Young America's Foundation for the celebration of racism that it is." Leaving aside for a moment the fact that Islam isn't a race, these students charged conservatives with racism, and then to buttress those baseless claims, these same radicals manufactured actual racist material to pin on the young conservatives.

Why does the right wing focus on these things? So the fliers were created to libel conservatives by a bunch of property damaging leftists with assassination fantasies. Big deal. But can there be any doubt it will be used by the vicious RWM to make the claim that some on the far left are willing to use hate speech to disparage conservatives?

It's so unfair.
