Letter to Palin, FOX News and the Far Right
I just thought you should know a
few things about the people
and media personalities who lied through your stinking teeth about "death panels"
and "Obama is coming for your guns" and "He isn't a citizen" and "He's a secret
Muslim" and "Sharia Law is coming to America," you who spread this bastard gospel
and you who swallowed it whole, I am talking to you, because this was your doing
just as surely as it was the doing of the deranged damned soul who pulled the trigger.
The poison you injected into our culture is deeply culpable for this carnage.
You who worship Jesus at the top of your lungs (in defiance of Christ's own teachings
on the matter of worship, by the way) helped put several churchgoers into their graves
and into the hospital. You who shriek about the sanctity of marriage helped cut down
a man who was about to be married. You who crow with ceaseless abandon about
military service and the nobility of our fighting forces helped to critically wound the
wife of a Naval aviator who fought for you in a war. You who hold September 11
as your sword and shield helped put a little girl born on that day into the ground.
You helped. Yes, damn you, you helped.
The "mainstream" media is already working overtime playing up the "Disturbed loner"
angle with all their might. There is no doubt, from the available evidence, of Mr. Loughner's
transformation into a disturbed individual. But here's the funny part: all the crazy crap
he spewed, about the gold standard (a favorite of Glenn Beck, the master of Fox "News"
fearmongering...so he can sell his gold scam to suckers) and government mind control
and everything else before going on his rampage, is straight out of the Right-Wing
Insanity Handbook. His personal YouTube ramblings were a mishmash of right-wing
anti-government nonsense...the kind that attracts sick minds like Loughner, the kind
that only reinforces their paranoia, the kind that finally pushes them over the brink
and into the frenzy of violence that took place on Saturday. The kind that the likes
of you have been happily spreading by the day.
He did not act alone. You were right there with him. You helped.
> There are two kinds of Republicans today:
There are the semi-sane Repubs who wonder if their party has gone too far and there are
the ones screaming like stuck pigs, the MOST guilty, doing all they can by screaming,
"You can't blame this on me and my multi-million-dollar salary that I get paid for
whipping the super-ignorant into a frenzy with our 'He's not an American' lies."
But without anybody saying a word, America knows which side is responsible.
