Right on time

A guy went crazy and tried to attack the Discovery Channel or something. Today. And he had hostages. But they all got out and he didn’t. Dead, da-dead-dead. He was apparently a regular pest at Discovery – they even had some sort of retraining order against him. Like every breathing mammal, he had a website and there his manifesto was open to any (not many) who cared to read it. Of course it crashed under the load today. But not before this happened.

The liberals at Think Progress quickly proclaimed him a conservative, and the conservatives at Breitbart’s Big Hollywood quickly proclaimed him a liberal.

So things are exactly as they should be and we may all sleep soundly tonight.

    ” T he liberals at Think Progress quickly proclaimed him a conservative, and the conservatives at Breitbart’s Big Hollywood quickly proclaimed him a liberal. ”

    ‘Your’ side started this stuff. Everytime some impaired person commits an act of violence, well it must have been inspired by the hate mongers at Fox and on Talk Radio . He who shall remain nameless posted that the Muslim Cabbie was attacked by a ‘Christian Terrorist’ on his site.

    The clowns at MSNBC always say that Rush has blood on his hands.

    So using the logic of your friends, tell me why Al Gore is not responsible for ginning up ecological hatred ?

    • Crazies will take their inspiration whereever they find it.

      Rush does have blood on his hands. He incites to violence. So does Beck. So does Palin. So does Bachman. On and on . . . . they do it not by using violent words, oh no, way too smart for that. They do it with eliminationist language. I refer you to a site (which sadly has gone almost dormant as the primary author was writing his newest book and is now on a book tour) that talks about this in great detail.

  4. Ms. Holland,

    I went to the site and read it thoroughly. I would dearly love to debate the author who goes around accusing everyone of sedition. Since you agree with this person, I only ask what should be done with Rush, Beck, Palin, and Bachman? Should they be silenced? Should they be thrown in jail?

    • They should neither be silenced nor put in jail. But they should be judged.

      Rush and Pain especially are entirely reactive. They bring absolutely nothing but scorn to the table. They aren’t actually part of the conversataion – they’re on the sidelines with enormous bullhorns shouting at eveyone 24/7.

      Meanwhile, they can talk and I can say I think their talk is seditious. That’s how it works Alan. I can’t – and shouldn’t be able to – stop them, but I can condemn them all I want.

  5. In reality it is all Daniel Quinn’s fault. This poor guy misinterpreted “Ishmael” – and look what it got him…..

    My daughter had a similar experience. For an art project during her first year of college she mailed out a set of rather edgy postcards – proclaiming Quinn’s wisdom as expressed through Ishmael. She sent one to Quinn himself. He actually wrote her a letter back, telling her that she completely misunderstoof his ideas. She was crushed.

    I reminded her yesterday that she was lucky – all she go was a letter of reprimand – at least she didn’t get shot.

    I realize this story is absolutely irrelevant – but I just had to share….

    ” But they should be judged. ” You went all imprecise on me. Judged by who?

    ” I can say I think their talk is seditious. ” You can call the Martians if you want, but your accuracy would be in question.
    I have researched sedition. I do not believe it includes peaceful protests or calling for a change of Government by the ballot box.

    ” I can’t – and shouldn’t be able to – stop them, but I can condemn them all I want. ” I agree.

    • Judged by serious people who care about thier country and the stability of thier society, that’s who.

      And Rush does’t engage in peaceful protest. He’s a professional demagogue. Or a rabble rouser if you prefer. That’s mischief. And dangerous

        It is indeed dangerous. Right from the start, Rush told his audience that he wanted Obama to fail. Country be damned! Politics are more important than getting us out of this mess the GOP created!

        One bit of evidence – Limbaugh began referring to “Obama’s failed stimulus” about a month after it passed – long before any of the money had even started flowing. It was a bold lie – yet Rush knew that his idiotic audience would suck it up – thus we had a cadre screaming about the failed stimulus before it even went into effect.

        Great political move, I guess, if you find honor in dishonesty. Bad for the country, though. An angry populace is rarely a good thing – particularly when the anger is misdirected.
