sides don't do it
The Republican party, and American
conservatives, have a fetish for violent imagery in words and pictures.
It's why Republicans think it funny that their supporters bring guns to
Obama rallies. It's why Glenn Beck
can claim on FOX that Obama plans to eliminate 10% of the US population
in some kind of genocide,
and Beck still keeps his job. It's why Sarah Palin (the woman who
coined the phrase "death panels"
- suggesting that Democrats, and our president at the lead, had a plot
to kill millions of elderly Americans
for sport - a ridiculous, and incendiary, notion that was embraced by
the leadership of the Republican
party and its propaganda organ, FOX News) can put bullseyes on the
districts of Democratic members
of Congress, and even tell her followers to "lock and reload," and all
the Republicans laugh at how funny
the violent imagery and words are...
Has the right been constantly bemoaning a left-wing leadership embrace
of violence, and somehow we all missed it?...
There is no left-wing NRA. There is no vice presidential candidate on
the Democratic side who puts
bullseyes on the districts of members of Congress he doesn't like. And
there is no Republican presidential
nominee who has seen a spike in death threats in part because of the
ramblings of the other team's noise
machine and its elected officials.
When you tell people that Democrats in Congress, and the White House,
are planning to institute
death panels to kill their grandmother, how do you expect them to
respond - with roses?
There aren't two sides to the Republicans' embrace of guns, violence,
and angry mobs.
It's all theirs. And it's time the media stopped pretending otherwise.”
He's right - the airwaves and cable are FLOODED with "Both sides do it"
"Both sides need to calm down."
Please - name a Democrat who needs to "calm down."
Our biggest problem is we can't motivate anybody to FIGHT!
Sadly, Jon Stewart agrees with that Horseshit!
Did you see his show Monday night?
He gave Palin and Pigboy a FREE PASS on their hate talk.
