Frequently Asked Questioned
Q: Do you think only the left says outrageous/stupid/hateful things?
A: Not at all. This site makes no claims about the relative frequency of such comments by either (or any) side.
Q: If that’s the case, why do you only report one side?
A: There are two reasons. For one, We have limited resources. More importantly, there is a greater need for reporting on one side than the other. While there are numerous efforts to track and report on conservative statements, information which is routinely trumpeted in the media, there is simply a lack of institutional memory when it comes to statements by the left. There are other websites and groups tracking the left, certainly, but they do not pierce traditional media to the same degree as those watching the right.
If a Republican or conservative says something stupid, the media does not let it go. But if the events surrounding the shooting of Congresswoman Giffords has demonstrated anything, it is that the same media will pretend like the left has never said anything violent or hateful if it means an opportunity for them to cast false blame on the right. It is this blatantly deceptive sort of willful ignorance for which I intend to put an end. While we do not expect the media to suddenly begin reporting accurately the truth, we at least can help folks call them out on their distortions. By organizing quotes topically and providing an easily searchable database, this site aims to make it that much easier to investigate and report on instances of hypocrisy or other unacceptable behavior from the left which might otherwise go unnoticed.
Q: You’re taking things out of context to score political points!
A: First, that’s not a question. Second, all quotes come with links to documentation and video, if such exists. I encourage anyone to check these sources and judge for themselves.
Q: You’re awesome, how can I help?
A: Now your questions are just all over the map. But what a wonderful question it is, so thanks for asking. Please see the Support LotM page for information on how you can help support our work and shine light on the truth.
