It seems that advocating killing members of the Congress is not rude, whereas saying fuck in liberal blogs is. At least the latter has been the source of much tut-tutting and choked cucumber sandwiches among the Washington insiders, and we have been allowed to share in their horror by seeing the liberal blogosphere whipped in the mainstream media. For rudeness and for being rabid lambs with venom.
I wonder how one should describe a talk show host who posts this on his website:
In a statement on his website, Hal Turner noted that a newspaper has reported that a bill granting amnesty to illegal aliens is expected to be enacted in January, when the Democratic Party takes control of the U.S. Senate and House.
"ANY MEMBER OF CONGRESS WHO INTRODUCES, CO-SPONSORS OR VOTES IN FAVOR OF ANY SUCH AMNESTY WILL BE DECLARED A DOMESTIC ENEMY AND WILL BE CONSIDERED A LEGITIMATE TARGET FOR ASSASSINATION," Turner posted on his website.
He didn't say fuck, though, so he will get a pass by the powers-that-still-be.
I hope I will be proved wrong, of course. I hope to hear a lot of condemnation of Hal Turner soon. But I'm not counting on that. The extreme wingnuts are left alone, because they are too scarey. It's much easier to attack the dirty peace-loving hippies of the left.
Remember Rwanda, if you think this sort of whipping-up of anger doesn't matter.
