Violent Rhetoric

Self Defense Instructor: Now try a kick with your right leg.

(Student performs kick with left leg.)

Self Defense Instructor: No, I meant your other right leg.

The maze-dream media have beat to death the idea that violent rhetoric from the right caused the attack on Rep. Gifford. So, let's take a look at an analysis of violent right-wing rhetoric.

(Caution: the following video contains some expletives. Minor children please let a parent preview this before you watch it yourself. "Honor your father and your mother.")

When he was talking about violent rhetoric from the right, no doubt Bill Maher meant the other right, better known as the left. Now watch this video from a left-wing rally held January 30 of this year.

(Sadly, this one also contains some bad language.)

Does calling for the torture and murder of Supreme Court justices qualify as violent rhetoric? Call me cynical, but I believe anyone at a Tea Party rally who called for the lynching of federal officials would probably be cooling his heels in a prison cell right now.

As for me, I don't want to challenge anyone to a duel or cut off anyone's toes and make him eat them, or lynch anyone. I do want to remain armed & vigilant precisely because of such weirdos as appear in these vids.
