Violence from the left & crickets

An Occupy Charlotte Activist threatens to kill South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley* (R) and is subsequently arrested. What do we hear from the mainstream media?

Does the media go on and on about OWS's violence or violent rhetoric?  Do they blame President Obama, who helped start this phenomenom with his class warfare rhetoric and calls to "Get in their faces?" Do they blame liberal union leaders the way they blamed "extremist Tea Party Republicans?"  Rand Paul was right on the money back in October with regards to Obama's rhetoric inflaming the OWS movement.

*Here's what Mr. Shafer said,

"I hope someone murders you before I do, “How’s that for freedom of speech?”

It's sad actually, because he's too dumb to realize that freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from the consequences of publicly threatening to kill someone.  Then again, no one ever claims Occupy protesters were intelligent.

What, you expect Shock and Outrage from the MSM? That's like expecting Hugo Chavez to say "Capitalism is Good."
