Rachel Maddow incites violence


Crossposted from TabithaHale.com

We recently received this call from an “anonymous source”, if you will.

Sheer brilliance. Click to listen.: Do it. Now.

Some money quotes:

“Be careful what you wish for – the right to bear arms means that everyone: can bear arms.”

“We will be fighting you to the death.”

“I’m so glad that I saw: Rachel Maddow. She’s brilliant. She’s absolutely fantastic. And her diagnosis of the ills of the American right are so right on. I mean, basically, what you’re doing is just saying no. You’re like belligerent children. You have no concept of how hard people have worked to get this together, and to make sure that we win. We WILL win, and will continue. That’s why Obama got elected.”

“We are now organized. We will show up at your town meetings, and your town halls, and trust me, it’s a force to be reckoned with.”

Sounds pretty threatening to me… but will Rachel condemn this? I’m sure she won’t. How about any of: these phone calls, posted back in August?

I’ll be the first to say that the calls to violence that are floating around both sides are inappropriate. It’s not productive, and makes everyone look bad. The media isn’t helping the situation by feeding stories that may or may not (and are most likely not) true from last weekend’s Tea Party rallies in Washington, and: downplaying Cantor’s office being shot up on Monday.

Can we all just agree that shooting people is bad? No one is supporting those that are throwing bricks through windows or anything else. But Ms. Maddow, consider that the hatred runs from your side as well. Words matter, and apparently your words are inciting threats from your listeners. How’s that for hate speech?

Maybe a word about that on tomorrow’s show to condemn the hatred of fellow human beings? I won’t hold my breath.
