Everybody wants to blame somebody else than the actual actors. The Tea Parties were blamed for radicalizing Jared Loughner and Joe Stack. Those placing a mosque near ground zero (just excersizing their freedom of religion) were blamed for inciting anger as well. If Americans riot and start doing things like, I don’t know, burning the Koran or shooting congresswomen, are the Muslims to blame?
No wait, I understand now. George Bush did it.
I’m looking for some consistency, but neither the left nor the right has it.
