Crazies Coming Out of the Woodwork

So, we get the guy now who killed the Black man at the Holocaust Museum, who apparently wanted to rampage all over Blacks and Jews. This after the whack-job who killed the doctor in church who provided late-term abortions.

And I still remember those angry conservative GOP rallies during the election season when people were shouting for Barack Obama’s death in some cases, simply because he had a funny sounding name, was black and was a Democrat.

And the loonies on FOX News, both the people who send in e-mails and the people on the air (pundits, hosts, guests, etc.) who espouse every kind of strange and outlandish conspiracy theory and latch on to the most minute things the Obamas do to try and convince America that the end is nigh.

Tell me, does anyone recall left-wingers going this nuts when the GOP came into power, whether after Carter’s defeat or the end of Clinton’s two terms? And when was the last time you heard about a raving liberal going on a killing spree for his or her ideology?

I’m not saying rampant liberalism is good. Too much left wing shit is still shit, just of another color and different smell. I perfer things somewhere in the middle, even if I like them to lean leftward a bit.

But really, please, can someone provide examples of recent left-wing killers and left-wing folks calling for people to be killed, tortured, etc.? And even if you can, can you convince me that there aren’t way more conservative, right-wing types who do this stuff?

Because the more I see of this, the more I think that being right-wing is be tended toward violence and hate, at least more so than left-wingers.

    “Because the more I see of this, the more I think that being right-wing is be tended toward violence and hate, at least more so than left-wingers”….those are fighting words! lol

    I do think the right-wing is a tad bit more intolerant, negatively expressive, and less open-minded about a lot of things they hold dear. Is it right or wrong? It lacks respect for others and, often times than not, leans towards blatant ignorance.

    I wonder if anyone from the right-wing would feel pride right now.

    Yeah, I certainly don’t want to paint all right-wingers as nut-jobs…but they certainly do seem to be hoarding the lion’s share of them among their ranks.

    Last I checked, not too many hippies, Greenpeace folks, etc. stocking up on weapons and threatening to overthrow the central government if it tries to, say, fix things or keep order…

    I, like you, wonder how much pride many conservatives have for their fellows when they see this kind of thing happen and see the utter lack of outrage from the more right-wing leaders, representatives and pundits they tend to hold dear.

    Ye reap what ye sow.

    They sow violence with their judgmental rhetoric, they shouldn’t be surprised when their fringe goes apeshit.

    And that, robyn, is why my weapon of choice, should I ever feel the need to purchase one, will be one hell of shotgun. I don’t want to bother with aiming when the next whackjob runs up on my family.

    I may lean left, but that don’t mean I’m averse to throwing a few punches when provoked. And boy, some of these folks out here are getting might provocative.
