Violent Rhetoric has Consequences
Schizophrenic and charismatic figures like Glen Beck, Limbaugh and Sarah Palin have made a career out of turning the civil discourse into rabid confrontation and hate towards those who actually think (not to mention those who think differently). This rhetoric has a marked impact on some of the mentally unstable. The shooting of AZ Congresswoman and killing of 5 innocent people is a direct consequence of violent and confrontational rhetoric by these dopes. Sure this may be a handy work of a deranged person. Sure, Beck never overtly ‘encouraged’ violence. Sure, Palin only user her free speech right to put cross-hairs on Congresswoman Giffords district. All these arguments remind me of an old movie in which Thughlak tells masses “not to” kill his political opponent by pelting stones. Guess what masses did? They stoned Thughlak’s political opponent to death!
This blood is on the hands of the nut bags like Beck, Limbaugh and Palin.
