Vitriol: Two to Tango
Here's another lefty pretending they're the victims of heated politics rather than eager participants. What a shame that they don't have more respect for the impact of yesterday's horrible events in Arizona.
"I believe that those of us who are in responsible positions owe it to the country and owe it ourselves and owe it to this great institution we call the United States Congress, to speak out against this kind of rhetoric because if you don't, it will keep ratcheting up, up, and up," added Clyburn. "And before you know it, as Martin Luther King has admonished us, the people of ill will will have won the debate."
And I think that what has happened here is the vitriol has gotten so elevated, until people feel emboldened by this. And people, who are a little less than stable, and people aren't thinking for themselves or are so easily influenced, they got out and do things that all of us pay a great price for.
Keep in mind, this is the crowd which marketed health reform by making it into the civil rights movement, even pretending to be called racial names in a faux racial march. They're the same people who call you a racist if you argue for enforcing our immigration laws.
Two months earlier, on November 8th, MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan called for a new American revolution and featured guest Ted Rall who advocates a violent overthrow of the government.
Remember that the first ever political fundraiser for President Obama was held at the home of a darling of the left, Bill Ayers, who once ran a violent war against America. Remember that the president's close friend and preacher was Reverend Wright, known to spew a bit of vitriol.
Whose vitriol is dangerous?
