Almost every broadcast of The Glenn Beck Show has some violent imagery: "The clock is ticking. . . . The war is just beginning. . . . Shoot me in the head if you try to change our government. . . . You have to be prepared to take rocks to the head. . . . The other side is attacking. . . . There is a coup going on. . . . Grab a torch! . . . Drive a stake through the heart of the bloodsuckers. . . . They are taking you to a place to be slaughtered. . . . They are putting a gun to America's head.
Thats a very small sampling of Glenn Becks lunacy, it has been proven that he personally inspired Richard Poplawski who killed three Pittsburgh police officers after telling friends he heard on Glenn Becks show that Obama was going to take his guns. No such law exists, Obama does not want to take your guns. Beck also inspired Byron Williams who stated that his intention was to start a revolution by traveling to San Francisco and killing people of importance at the Tides Foundation and the ACLU. The tides foundation are a favorite target of Becks.
Rush Limbaugh: "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."
Ann Coulter: "My only regret with Tim McVeigh is that he did not go to the New York Times building"
Eric Erickson (Redstate.com): "At what point do [people] get off the couch, march down to their state legislator's house, pull him outside and beat him to a bloody pulp for being an idiot?"
Michael Savage: "I say round liberals up and hang em' high. When I hear someone's in the civil rights business, I oil up my AR-25."
Dick Morris: "Those crazies in Montana who say 'we're going to kill ATF agents because the UN's going to take over.' Well, they're beginning to have a case."
G. Gorden Liddy (broadcasting advice on how to kill law enforcement officers): "...head-shots, they are wearing body armor, head shots... or shoot for the groin."
VIOLENT DISCOURSE LEADS TO VIOLENT ACTION ,
Is this where we are with public debate now? Is this our future? The 2nd amendment does NOT give you the right to kill the person you disagree with, you cant kill an elected official because your favorite didn't win. All this populist anger confuses me because the angry people dont know that the 111th congress was one of the most active and successful in american history!!!!!!!!! AND THEY LOWERED TAXES. What happened in Arizona is the very antithesis of democracy. Is this what your founding fathers wanted?? Sarah Palin put a map on her facebook with a map of America with GUNSIGHTS over the districts of people she doesn't like. Congressman Gifford was one. Sarah Palin should hang her head in shame, leave politics and never return. There is NO PLACE in politics for guns. Sarah Palins spokesperson has now said that they weren't gun sights... they were surveyors symbols. I will let u judge.

The right are not directly responsible for Jared Loughners lunacy, but they are responsible for desensitizing the nation to political violence. I live in a country that proved you cant replace the ballot box with bullets. Violence begets violence. America is supposed to be the standard, the system the rest of the world needs to look up to, to emulate, that shining city on the hill. You are being dragged down by your own people. I wish I could say you are being dragged kicking and screaming, but you are marching lock step to the 19th century. You have been scared into believing that every move Obama and the left make is to bring down the constitution or to somehow hurt you. Hermann Georing said "Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders". That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. Its time to get back to whats true, whats just and whats right. Killing people u disagree with is the staple diet of middle eastern countries. Rise above it. Don't let people with ulterior motives keep you scared and subservient. At some point we stop being progressive/conservative, right / left , republican or democrat. We become human. There may be no connection between matches and gasoline, but what happens if u put them together.
