■ “I’m waiting for the day when I pick it up, pick up a newspaper or click on the Internet and find out he’s choked to death on his own throat fat or a great big wad of saliva or something, you know, whatever. Go away, Rush, you make me sick!” — Left-wing radio host Mike Malloy on the January 4, 2010 Mike Malloy Show, talking about Rush Limbaugh going to the hospital after suffering chest pains.

■ MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in 2009 fantasized about the death of Rush Limbaugh: “Somebody’s going to jam a CO2 pellet into his head and he’s going to explode like a giant blimp”

■ Author/humorist P.J. O’Rourke: “It’s the twilight of the radio loud-mouth, you know? I knew it from the moment the fat guy-”
Host Bill Maher: “You mean Rush Limbaugh and Sean-”
O’Rourke: “-from the moment the fat guy refused to share his drugs....”
Maher: “You mean the OxyContin that he was on?...Why couldn’t he have croaked from it instead of Heath Ledger?” — HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, February 8, 2008.

MSNBC’s Amy Robach in 2006 mildly wondered if “Death of a President” movie depicting the imagined assassination of President Bush was “poor taste or, as some say, thought-provoking?”

■ On his radio show in 2009, Ed Schultz wished for Dick Cheney’s death: “He is an enemy of the country, in my opinion, Dick Cheney is, he is an enemy of the country … Lord, take him to the Promised Land, will you?”

■ Also on his radio show, in 2010, Schultz shouted: “Dick Cheney’s heart’s a political football. We ought to rip it out and kick it around and stuff it back in him!

■ Then-Air America host Montel Williams in 2009 urged Congresswoman Michele Bachmann to kill herself: “Slit your wrist! Go ahead! I mean, you know, why not? I mean, if you want to – or, you know, do us all a better thing. Move that knife up about two feet. I mean, start right at the collarbone.”

■ Writing on the Huffington Post in 2007, radio host Charles Karel Bouley mocked: “I hear about Tony Snow and I say to myself, well, stand up every day, lie to the American people at the behest of your dictator-esque boss and well, how could a cancer NOT grow in you? Work for Fox News, spinning the truth in to a billion knots and how can your gut not rot?”

“I’m just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That’s a fact.” — Host Bill Maher on his HBO show Real Time, March 2, 2007, discussing how a few commenters at a left-wing blog were upset that an attempt to kill Vice President Cheney in Afghanistan had failed.

■ “Earlier today, a rental truck carried a half a million ballots from Palm Beach to the Florida Supreme Court there in Tallahassee. CNN had live helicopter coverage from the truck making its way up the Florida highway, and for a few brief moments, America held the hope that O.J. Simpson had murdered Katherine Harris.”Bill Maher on ABC’s Politically Incorrect, November 30, 2000.

■ Host Tina Gulland: “I don’t think I have any Jesse Helms defenders here. Nina?”
NPR’s Nina Totenberg: “Not me. I think he ought to be worried about what’s going on in the Good Lord’s mind, because if there is retributive justice, he’ll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it.” — Exchange on the July 8, 1995 Inside Washington, after Helms said the government spends too much on AIDS.

“I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease....He is an absolutely reprehensible person.” — USA Today columnist and Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveaux on Justice Clarence Thomas, November 4, 1994 PBS To the Contrary.

I initially had re-posted this entry in its entirety, but its length and large number of images and videos demonstrating the dangerous rhetoric and actions of the American Left was simply too much for this blog to handle. Therefore I ask you to click the link to learn which side of the aisle is most dangerous:

The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010

OK, I have waited a few days to see what the fallout was going to be. But I can't hold back anymore. Let us look at the facts. A deranged young man went on a shooting rampage at a Safeway near Tucson, Arizona. He managed to kill six, including a nine year old and a federal judge, and wound 14 others. Apparently he targeted the Congresswoman  who was holding a town hall at the store. What is not for certain was whether or not he had a reason to kill her specifically or if he chose her because of her high profile (resulting in more media coverage).

No matter his reasons, one thing is clear: Jared Loughner is a completely insane nutbag. And, in all honesty, that is all that should matter. I could care less what his politics are compared to hers. He is crazy. Look at some of his YouTube videos and a link to a story about his home and college life:
Killer's Weirdness

He is a nutball who thinks the government controls people via grammar structure, he revels in the idea of conscious dreams and his favorite books include "The Communist Manifesto."

NUTBALL! That's it. End of story, right? WRONG! Because his politics include distrust of the government, the Left and the media are claiming he is a Tea Party Republican. Two points...

One, where is the evidence of this? Have the media forgotten that BOTH the Left and Right have fringes who hate the government? On the Right are militias. On the Left are Anarchists. They BOTH exist. They are BOTH a little nutter. But exam time... When was the last time you caught a person on the Right with a copy of "The Communist Manifesto?" Better yet, when have you heard of someone on the Right naming it one of their favorite books? It doesn't happen. Anarchists? Yep. The fringe Left? Yep. But not on the Right. Still, the rush to blame the right is telling (more to follow).

Two, who cares? Seriously. Who cares what the politics of loons may be? I don't. A crazy person is a crazy person. Why must we always have to dig into the back story? Why must we assign blame to anyone or any part of society when it is the actions of THE IDIOT WHO WENT ON A RAMPAGE?

Ah! That's the real issue behind this tragedy.

The VERY NIGHT of the shooting, the sheriff of Pima County went out of his way to say the shooting was political and lay blame at the feet of "vitriol" in political discourse. He continued by blaming "radio and TV" hosts who fan flames of political anger. Earlier that day, CNN and MSNBC both had guest after guest after guest who blamed the American Right and the Tea Party. CNN actually invited a liberal cartoonist on to bash conservatives and say this was all their fault. FEW took the time to blame the idiot shooting up a Safeway.

Wait a minute! The last time I checked, I have control over my actions. No one one the Left or Right will influence me in a manner to kill or maim. That is pure idiocy. Even if I were a complete shell of a human who was on the verge of snapping, there is no way this is true. It's any easy way to place blame. But that's all it is. A way to blame people we do not agree with.

How about this? We agree to blame the idiot who committed a crime and leave it at that? But, again, no. The Left and the media want blood. They are hopping mad that the Right is on to them. And they are going to use this tragedy to "target" the American Right. 

Look at what has already happened. Within minutes of the shooting, the Left began passing around the link to Sarah Palin's "target" list from the 2010 election that crosshaired Democratic Congressmen and women who voted for ObamaCare but whose districts voted for McCain on 2008.


But why is the Left not trotting out their own commands to kill? 

This is an image from the Lefty website, DailyKos, and the DNC:

Hmm... Look at that. Bullseye targets on Congressional districts. Using the Left's own strategies, I guess Markos Moulitsas is guilty of incitement. But that is just stupid. But didn't Palin use that targeting list over and over again. Yep. And so did Moulitsas and the DNC:

Link to Bulleye info
More Targeting Info

But wait! Doesn't the Tea Party and those mean, mean, mean people at Fox and the conservative radio stations want the Left to literally die? Nope. I've never heard of that. You hear that all the time from the Left:
NPR host wants conservative Senator's grandchildren to get AIDS and die
Just Google any MSNBC host and death to (fill in the blank)

But are there not some fringe Right sites that call for violence? Yep. And those sited are for loons. The same thing is true on the Left. They Left has just as many fringe sites that call for violence as well. But, oddly, there is this DailyKos page that was scrubbed over the weekend:
MY CONGRESSWOMAN IS DEAD TO ME (links to site with cache and commentary of the deleted DailyKos page)

The problem is this: The Left and Right have nutballs. They do exist. And when they act like fools or kill people we should all call it like it is: A tragedy committed by a NUTBAG IDIOT.

But that is not enough this time. The Left and the media are, like I said earlier, out for blood.

The sheriff wonders if free speech is a good thing.
The Brits are already laying blame at the American Right.

The American Left already proposes curbing free speech by Congressional action.

Hillary Clinton calls him a political "extremist."

It's a coordinated, vicious attack on the Right. A loon goes nuts (likely a loon with Leftist tendencies) and the world stops spinning. Seriously? I think people should be allowed to yell and scream anything (except REAL threats) at Congress and the President. Heck, under Bush people could without repercussion. Years of Code Pink vitriol. Even a movie about Bush's "assassination." But no one said the Left was out of control. No one thought there needed to be legislation against speech that is not agreeable.

And the media? The media is the worst offender. This morning every major channel has lead with people speculating as to the NUTBAG's desires and political interest. Not people that knew him, mind you, people speculating.

Remember when that woman went NUTTERS and shot three at the University of Alabama? Everyone urged caution when her background revealed she was "obsessed" with Barack Obama and "took to heart" when he said "...If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun."

Remember when a NUTTER went crazy and killed 13 at Fort Hood? The media "urged caution" when reports of a Muslim man yelling "Allah Akbar" was the shooter, instead focusing for more than an hour or two that  there was "a likelihood" the reports of a Muslim involved were "overstated, exaggerated or worse" and the shooting was "more likely" a crazed member of the Army. (In fact, it was a NUTTY Muslim angry with the US.)

Remember when a NUTTER tried to set off a bomb in Times Square? New York's Mayor Bloomberg speculated the Right tried to commit the act because of their desire to defeat Obamacare even though it was a crazy wanna be terrorist.

Remember when a NUTTER took over the Discovery Channel HQ? Remember the NUTTER Pentagon shooter? Remember the NUTTER who flew his plane into an IRS building in Austin? All these people turned out to be Leftists, but their acts were speculated by the media to be the acts of the Right.

It is interesting the Left and the media are doing the same thing. Democrats are jumping at every chance to get on TV to say "we need to turn down the rhetoric." As if these people are innocent! Both sides straddle the line of talk and action. But THAT'S THE WAY IT NEEDS TO BE.

It is only NUTTERS that cross that line. The Left, as shown above, have plenty. The Right does as well. But instead of scoring political points, why can't the sides come together and grieve for our losses and pray for the  victims? Instead of rushing to lay blame and cap free speech because of the acts of a NUTBALL, why can't we come together and see that 1 idiot did something wrong while 310 MILLION did not?

I find it despicable this is not happening. Let's remember those who are gone and stop this mindless speculation and blame game. It is not fair to the Right, the Left , this country nor the victims.

Using their own words, it looks like a bunch of racists are running CNN and MSNBC:

It seems that the "mainstream" media has finally figured out how the Obama Regime works. From Dana Milbank of the Washington Post come these amazing words about the man the press helped elect:

World leaders arriving in Washington for President Obama's Nuclear Security Summit must have felt for a moment that they had instead been transported to Soviet-era Moscow.

In the middle of it all was Obama -- occupant of an office once informally known as "leader of the free world" -- putting on a clinic for some of the world's greatest dictators in how to circumvent a free press.

The whole article can be found right here.

There are times that I wonder why the folks at MSNBC have no clue they are in last place. Yesterday, the channel devoted an entire segment to a Huffington Post blogger to discuss the recent mishaps at the Republican National Committee. Since when does the RNC or its membership talk to anyone from the HuffPost, much less one of that sites bloggers? Answer: They don't.

In THIS LINK you can read all about how even the MSNBC host admitted that a blogger, who had NO actual facts to report, went on and on demonizing Republicans and conservatives based on gossip and whispers from his own leftist friends.

Since when do leftist bloggers on sites like HuffPo (one of the most extreme sites on the web) have credibility? And since when do "news organizations" like MSNBC have these people on to report facts when the channel itself admits there are no facts? Can you imagine the outrage if Fox News had a conservative blogger come on the channel and discuss idle gossip about the Democratic National Committee? There would be outrage of tremendous magnitude. But no in this case.

Yet another reason not to watch MSNBC or browse the HuffPo. Boo and hiss to both.

The first is a quick link. The Seattle Times went out of its way (like hundreds of other news outlets) to report all the threats against Democrats. Oddly, few mentioned the threats (and the gunshots) aimed at Republicans, but that wouldn't have helped their storyline that it is only conservatives going nuts.

One the items in the Seattle paper's story Rep. Driehouse of Ohio had his window in his Cincinnati office broken. But there is a slight problem. See Driehouse's office is on the 30th floor AND a quick inquiry with his office would have revealed that such an incident had never happened.

But where is the Seattle Times' retraction? Nowhere in their pages. But you can learn the truth at this helpful link.

The other link I want to share is an opinion piece by Steve Forbes. It is about the "transformation" in the "media reform" movement.

Right now there is a push coming from the Progressive Left in an attempt to socialize American media. Now, they aren't worried about the normal things. Rather, they are worried there are not enough progressive voices (despite having ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, HLN, and 99% of newspapers favoring and championing their causes).

The reality is the American Left does not like conservatives having a voice. They are all for free speech as long as it agrees with them. These people are already using a friendly radical administration to push for the re-enactment FCC regulations that will take conservatives off the radio airwaves. They don't want to be on the radio, see; they just want those who disagree with them off the air.

The newest tactic appears to be one that has, so far, been under the radar. What is this tactic? Call it the Hugo Chavez Media Reform. This is scary stuff. But don;t think it could not happen here. Hell, Sean Penn was recently quoted as saying those who disagree with Chavez's tactics should be jailed. Then again, this is the man who said those on the right side of the aisle should die of rectal cancer. Anywho, enjoy the read.

First, I am back on Twitter. You can find me at chrisbrad79.

For the longest time, I never got any Twits, but could not figure out why. That is until yesterday. At some point many months ago I must have accidentally reset my tweet preferences to only receive "direct messages." Basically, those are inbox messages sent from others' web tweet accounts. But no one uses Twitter like that, so I never got anything.

But now that is solved and I am getting Tweets again! Just be sure you add the 79 to chrisbrad, otherwise you are getting someone else.

Secondly, as I have for at least the past 15 years I sat in front of the TV and watched the President deliver the State of the Union address. I have to say, Obama delivered one of the worst in my memory. It was divisive, preachy, and downright condescending. The worst part was hearing a President outright lie to the nation. His characterization of the recent Supreme Court decision was not just false, it was intentionally misleading. And, for that among other things, he should be ashamed.

But listening to the state-controlled media, one would have walked away thinking this speech was among the greatest ever spoken. On one hand, I am saddened by such awful bias. On the other, I am happy ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox have shown their hands.

Oh well, SOTU speeches are always a letdown. Just a series of promises sure to be broken in the next twelve months (and that is true of both parties' Presidents).

Until later...
