Remember when we were supposed to denounce violence?

... especially when it was remotely connected to Tea Partiers? Alas, those days are over.

Unfunny comedian Bill Maher said yesterday that "If a brick came through Rupert Murdoch’s apartment, yes, I have a feeling Fox News would be a lot more gentle on the Wall Street people." MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, on whose show Maher found himself, laughed.

And hell, here's the call in straight black and white:

If this dude was a Tea Partier, he'd be a regular feature on MSNBC, CNN, CBS and ABC for a solid week!

Remember how "choked up" Nancy Pelosi got at the [imaginary] prospect of Tea Party violence? She's suddenly ultra-cool with those OWSers. Who'da thunk that? Yeesh.

But hey, there's always that 'ol standby: Libs can always bring out that inevitable, tiresome, needs-no-intellect card -- opposition to OWS is "racist!"

I wonder -- if a few bullets went through the MSNBC studio, would that network be less harsh towards the Tea party? That is the sort of logic that Maher is using.
