Earlier today the “news” broke that someone (who has yet to be identified) evidently defaced a sign on one of Rep. Scott’s offices with a swastika. A clear cut case of criminal trespass, it isn’t acceptable. But the assumptions many are making are equally unacceptable.
For example, Rep. Scott himself somehow has used his crackerjack powers of observation and investigation to declare, “This is not coming from people inside my district.” Nope, you see, it’s all those racists and hate filled people who dared to object to government run health care. “We can’t let racism and hate win,” he said. Remember, it’s racist to want to be in charge of your own health care.
Did I miss, though, the part where someone has been caught and confessed to the crime, blaming their actions on racism and hate?
You see, we’ve been down this road before. Remember Pamela Graf? She’s the one who had her house torched because she supported President Obama. The blame was heaped, as night follows day, upon all those racists. Pesky point, though: Pamela Graf was later arrested for torching her own house.
Yeah, now you remember her.
Before we all buy into the assumptions of simpletons like Rep. Scott, who never met any sympathy he didn’t take advantage of, let’s consider for a moment that maybe, just maybe, a supporter of Scott committed this vandalism under cover of night in order to create a scenario where the scary and non-existent “racists” could be blamed.
Because, in a case where no arrests have yet been made, it’s just as plausible.
