Air America’s Randi Rhodes Mugged: Blame The Right Wingers

I’ll say right off the bat, get well Randi (via Memeorandum)

Randi Rhodes was mugged on Sunday night on 39th Street and Park Ave, nearby her Manhattan apartment, while she was walking her dog Simon.

According to Air America Radio late night host Jon Elliott, Rhodes was beaten up pretty badly, losing several teeth and will probably be off the air for at least the rest of the week. At of late Monday night we have not able to locate any press accounts of the attack and nothing has been posted on the AAR website.

Like with any mugging, it is a terrible thing. However, the story goes down a typical liberal insane road

Pointing out that Rhodes was wearing a jogging suit and displayed no purse or jewelry, Elliott speculated that “this does not appear to me to be a standard grab the money and run mugging.”

“Is this an attempt by the right wing hate machine to silence one of our own,” he asked. “Are we threatening them. Are they afraid that we’re winning. Are they trying to silence intimidate us.”

Some of blog posters also expressed concerns that the attack on Rhodes was hate crime. Other posters warned that we need more facts before any judgements are made.

The last sentence shows there are some actual, for goodness sake, sane liberals out there. Probably 2. With all due respect to Randi, why would we try and silence someone on a radio station that is barely even heard? Very few people even remember Air Deadbeat is even active anymore.

From Brilliant At Breakfast

Granted, we don’t know for certain that Rhodes was specifically targeted for political reasons. We are, after all, talking about New York and people do get mugged. But taken in the context of a right wing hate machine that’s grown ever more shrill as not just their president, but their entire ideology, has shown to be a hollow shell constituting just a veneer over a fetid, stinking core of greed, hypocrisy, and incompetence, they’re going to lash out at those who shattered their illusions, rather than those who manipulated them in the first place.

Tags for the post included “facism.” Should have included “I forgot my meds today.”

Alternate Brain

I hope the crybabies on the right aren’t resorting to violence and it was just a crackhead who needed a jumbo or some nut. The political system in this country is fucked up enough. We don’t need an escalation.

Alternate reality.

Afternoon update: Perhaps I should call that Bullsh*t Reality

A police source said Rhodes never filed a report and never claimed to be the victim of a mugging. Cops from Manhattan’s 17th Precinct called her attorney, who told them Rhodes was not a victim of a crime, the source said.

Rhodes’ lawyer told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog. He said she’s not sure what happened, and only knows that she fell down and is in a lot of pain. The lawyer said Rhodes expects to be back on the air Thursday. He stressed there is no indication she was targeted or that she was the victim of a “hate crime.”

Seethe on, leftard morons. Another left wing hyserical outburst shot down in flames by the mighty tide of reality.

See Memeorandum for more reactions.

Michelle Malkin has proof that it was her fault

Captain Ed: Air America lies, even when stories involve their own personnel. No one thought to give Randi a call to see how she was doing before Elliot decided to air his report? And no one thought to do so afterwards? The police ended up calling to see why no one reported the incident to them. That’s just marvelous journalistic ethics.

Brian Mahoney at The Radio Equalizer picks out plenty of liberal seething, plus asks what the hell Matt Drudge is doing.

  1. When the left has to make up stories about people getting mugged, you know that the left is in serious trouble (and a bit challenged in the IQ department).
