But We Don't WANNA Stop Hatemongering
Monday's right wing media reaction to the Giffords shooting in Tucson was — predictable.
Let me sum it up for you.
"We expect to continue to use the airwaves to stoke up the embers of anti-government resentment, anger and paranoia because it is our right to do so. And we shall continue to refuse to acknowledge our responsibility for any violent act perpetrated by an unhinged individual who may or may not have heard our calls to armed violence."
Because, you see, there is no evidence as of yet that Jared Lee Loughner was LISTENING to Rush Limbaugh when he said...
"I tell people don't kill all the liberals. Leave enough so we can have two on every campus--living fossils--so we we'll never forget what these people stood for."
There's no evidence that Loughner even had the radio turned ON when Glenn Beck said...
“I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out — is this wrong? I stopped wearing my What Would Jesus — band — Do, and I’ve lost all sense of right and wrong now. I used to be able to say, “Yeah, I’d kill Michael Moore,” and then I’d see the little band: What Would Jesus Do? And then I’d realize, “Oh, you wouldn’t kill Michael Moore. Or at least you wouldn’t choke him to death.” And you know, well, I’m not sure.”
There's not a single scintilla of proof that Loughner was even in the same ROOM with a TV set when Bill O'Reilly said about abortion provider Dr. George Tiller, who was later murdered during church services...
- He "destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000."
- He's guilty of "Nazi stuff,"
- a moral equivalent to NAMBLA and al-Qaida
- "This is the kind of stuff that happened in Mao's China, Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Soviet Union"
- "operating a death mill"
- "has blood on his hands"
- "executing babies about to be born"
