If the problem is with deflation why monetize the debt?

Wouldn't it make more sense to monetize equities if you want inflation?  Specifically "how does the Fed printing money and monetizing equities cause yields to rise"?  Wouldn't they in fact do the exact opposite?  And doesn't that then explain why institutions are only buying debt instruments and in particular treasuries?  Seems fairly straightforward to me.  Certainly goes a long way towards explaining why the Federal Government has no concern with trillion dollar deficits now and forever.
