Left Wing Civility Update

Alec Baldwin: so progressive, so hip, so activist, so out of his [bleeping] gourd:

As you can see, Ms. Palmeri is a threatening figure indeed. It’s amazing Baldwin was able to escape with his life. (Maybe his mistook her for his daughter, the “thoughtless little pig”?)

Actor Alec Baldwin allegedly called a black Post photographer a racial epithet, a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer” during a confrontation on an East Village street yesterday morning, prompting police to intervene.

Baldwin had first been approached by a Post reporter while walking his dogs outside his East 10th Street pad at around 10:50 a.m. He was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.

The “30 Rock’’ star grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death,” Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation.

He then called G.N. Miller — a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post — a “coon, a drug dealer,’’ Miller’s police statement said.

Upon reflection, however, Baldwin was more sensible and reasoned.

Minutes later, Baldwin ranted on Twitter.

“Thank u 2 NYPD officers who came to my home 2day so that I could file a formal complaint against NY Post “photographer’’ who assaulted me,’’ he tweeted.

In another post, Baldwin referred to Miller, for unknown reasons, as “Ralston,” writing, “Moments after I tweet about the Post, Ralston, the ex-crackhead ‘photographer’ shows up at my door w 1 of Murdoch’s nieces in tow.”

He added, “Ralston claims he’s ex NYPD!! That can’t be!!! Ex NYPD don’t become crackhead, ex jailhouse paparazzi!”

The actor eventually removed most of the posts.

Baldwin called the ID a “fake’’ and added Miller was a “crackhead” and a “drug dealer” who “just got out of jail,” Miller said.

Baldwin also made “disparaging remarks’’ about Miller’s mother, the photographer said.

As oblivious pedestrians walked by, Baldwin told him to “suck my d–k,” Miller said.

Baldwin also walked up to random people — including a dad pushing his child in a stroller — and told them Miller was an ex-con and drug dealer, Miller said.

“He was saying some serious racist stuff,” Miller said. “He said some choice words about my mother, and he was telling people in the street that I’m a drug dealer.

“He could have said a lot of other stuff. But he used all of the stereotypes associated with black people.”

Miller worked for the NYPD for nearly 15 years, spending most of his time in narcotics.

You would be forgiven for thinking we have this occasion confused with another time Baldwin assaulted a photographer:

But we didn’t. This photographer was white (Latino perhaps), not a “coon”. He was also Daily News, not Post.

How is this tied to the Left? Well, you could read Baldwin’s vapid entries at the PuffHo.

You could listen to his oft-espoused, poorly articulated political views.

You could peruse his campaign donations.

Ask him about Occupy Wall Street.

Watch any one of these video clips of his rantings.

We’ll just keep providing the evidence that the Left has a lot of unresolved anger in its midst—not to mention racism and misogyny—and let you draw your own conclusions. Enjoy!
