Are you fucking serious. Paz? Let us destroy you and your 'logic'.

As per your post... ' the left wing nutjob that shot these people'...

Democrats are defined and stereotyped as being 'Leftist'.  So, you are positing that a 'left-wing nut job' shot a fellow Comrade? Holy fucking Batshit. That is Faux-News worthy propaganda resurrecting the Shade of Goebbels. Guess someone has Goebbel's speeches and hand-written notes by the bed for some late-night memorizing.

Hitler was a Conservative. Now, we don't like to admit that... yet it is true. Hitler was for Germany and Germans, The Aryan race. Hitler sought support from The Church and Business Leaders. He needed them to sway the masses and fund his war machine. He then led a 'Crusade' against all non-Aryan races - particularly the Asiatic Slavs. Where have we seen this in history before? How about that 'Muslim' problem in The US being hyped by the right? Hitler did it with the Jews.

The parallels between Nazi Gemany and todays Right Wing (Reich Wing) are frighteningly similar. Perhaps why the love to use his imagery and name so much. Shades of Goebbels.

Stalin? Well, he was set to become a lay-person in The Church in Georgia. How much did The Church influence his thinking and how much of religious training did he apply to his zeal in perfecting his brand of Communism? Probably, a lot. Think of it this way, modern Christianity, Judaism, and Islam has a top-down command structure. Do as your told or you go to Hell. Ministers, Priests, Clergy, Rabbi... all 'learned men' in the mystical ways of God. All that use 'logic' to tell the less-informed, ignorant followers what to do. They interpret whatever vastly re-written work of a holy book to the masses.

A top-down command structure. Hmmmm... Republicans? Do as I say and not as I do. Republican ideology and Christian ideology mesh very well. Pro-business crony-capitalism. Leadership from above. No plurality other than within a narrow set of doctrines. Much like a bible. Stalin invoked Lenin and Marx. Hitler had Mein Kampf and Aryan determination. More parallels between Conservatives and Dictators.

Oh, Neo-Nazis and their identification with Conservative America. Christian Neo-Nazis. Yes. Again, Conservatives in America, and Nazism, identify closely. Both are conservative ideology which is why they identify so closely together.

So, this anti-American asshole who unloaded a legally bought gun at a duly elected representative of the American government was...

...A FUCKING CONSERVATIVE.

You have been found to be wanting. You have been schooled. You know it. And anything else you post is in desperation and realization that your ego has been shown to be much smaller than you think. It is a problem with Conservatives.

Any moron that claims that a 'Commie-Leftist' shot another 'Commie-Leftist' in defense of whatever conservative ideology he/she read is just that... a Conservative Moron.

Now, you want to be enlightened a little? Hmmm... discard your false dichotomy of what it means to be conservative or liberal. That has been reinforced upon you by a sophisticated propaganda machine that has existed for a very long time. That propaganda machine was used to instill fear (of which many conservatives are prone to - and controlled by) into the population after WWII and in fighting The Cold War.

What is a more accurate description of 'conservative' and 'liberal' in regards to ideology?

Vodka... first calm down and breath  in ..... out   in......out.  There ya go.  Now try and read this time what is written not what you want to potray onto someone else.  I never used the words liberal or conservative in my post.

I never claimed that the congresswoman that was shot was a "Commie-leftist"  Please point out where I ever called her anything???  You are doing a lot of assuming in your response my friend.  What if the man was so far to the left that he found her to be a little too moderate? 

What we know from a close friend named Catie  is this  I qoute her  " he was left wing, quite liberal, and “oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy"

I think it is you my friend whose dichotomy was built by the propaganda machine.

Most Conservatives in America are not Conservatives.  A true conservative would not support something like the unpatriot  "Patriot Act"  A true conservative would not support an imperial arm force station around the world as nation builders fighting wars in foreign lands that are unwarranted. 

So your idea of a conservative and my idea of a conservative are different.

 

Sorry but if you want to take me to school you will have to do better than that(by the way I find myself in agreement on your assesment of Republicans)

Again sorry if you can't fit me into one of your neat little boxes.

Mayhaps I read too much into this:

"and you max sound like the left wing nutjob that shot these people."?

My 'Commie Leftist' protrayal equates to the 'left wing nutjob'. Not too much of a stretch of the imagination. 'Left wing nut job' also connects to the portrayal of stereotypes between 'Left' and 'Right' in America. The whole post is an exposition of that phrase. No, you did not use 'conservative' in your post. However, you did use a proxy term directly equated with The Left - an indirect lie on your part. True that you did not mention THE WORD, liberal, merely a stereotyped phrase to indicate 'liberals'.

You are parsing too finely. Much like an economist or philospher or a lawyer. All have their uses, just that the philospher is more useful and the economist a scientific fraud and a lawyer can convice a jury that a guilty man is innocent - or protect a person's rights against abuse by others.

I called JL a left wing nut job because he is calling for Sarah Palin to be shot in the face... thus the comparison to Jared.  You can call it parsing words while I see it that you read too much into someone's words.

It would be nice if you also acknowledge I did not label the congresswoman as left or right, thus you claiming that I said a left wing nutjob shots another leftwingnutjob is totaly false.

Yet, one has to ask oneself how many 'Americans' are cracking open a beer and celebrating that a 'Leftist Commie' was shot along with her 'Leftist Commie' supporters? A lot. Hence the remark about the deposit into the bank account is not entirely without merit. Untrue, of course. Yet it is accurate in portraying a tad too many people's response (of joy and happiness) to this tragedy.

The promotion of violence by Reich-wingers and their ilk and the comparison to video games? Jesus H. F*cking Christ.

Videogames are tools used by people for entertainment. Sure, some people might be pre-disposed towards violence, and/or desensitized. However, they are also used as learning tools. They do not LEAD nor do they provide LEADERSHIP.

Sarah Palin does. Glenn Beck and all those other asshole Republican Crazies do LEAD and provide LEADERSHIP. They are examples of LEADERSHIP that have used violent representations and rhetoric in order to inspire others to commit violence.

Comparing Sarah Palin and videogames is like comparing The Titanic to an apple. It just does not F*cking WORK. Fallacy of logic.

You are so Wrong Again.  The constant drum beating of Fox News & Co. and Glenn Beck are actually a brainwashing of America. Most get all their news from them and believe they only speak the truth. Even when some of Fox's own people say, "they do not report the news. It's only a show."  LOL  The weak minded believe all their Bullshit.  And worse, will defend it if you challenge anything Fox says.

See, here's the thing "rocker": Unless you personally know and are a close friend of this deranged prick shooter, you have no way of knowing his motive at this point. Period. Because the victim is a democrat, you assume he's a tea party person. You assume he likes Sarah Palin. You assume he watches Fox News. And, of course, anyone who believes in the tea party, likes Sarah Palin and Fox News is automatically a nutjob, future assassin/murderer. 

Only to selfishly promote your own agenda do you ascribe blame for this to Fox News and Glenn Beck. 

Today is a defeat for all of us. A defeat for civil liberty. A defeat for freedom. A defeat for representative government. God help us all.

Wow Turd, I actually thought you were a open minded person. Who has a agenda? I personally do not like the U.S. news at all. But dude, did I strike a personal nerve on your friend or his agenda. You have to at least admit he, (Glenn Beck), has a agenda paid for by the elite who have a real agenda. What I know is what I hear that these idiots say and the lies they perpetuate. I, like many, used to watch them 24/7. Then, I woke up and could see what they were doing. Rupert Murdoch wants to control how all think. They feed the sheep and some sheep eat their shit. Not me, anymore. They support the Sarah Palins and Sharon Angle type. Both who want to claim they want to take back America. What, through the party who supports the Goldman Sachs and elite banking cartel of America. Not to mention the FED. Their own personal candy machine.  Please!!!  If you think that is my agenda,your right. I think they are biased to the rich and prey on the stupids.  Ever notice how they have their talking points of the day? Sarah made a choice to be a contributor when they pimped her with enough dough. Think about it, first CNBC had her and now FOX.  So yes, I assume from what I hear. But from just what I hear on ZH alone this guys profile seems more obvious that my assumption is correct and you are not. Time will tell who is right. But Sarah Pac does not help your assumption.

Please explain something to me re Beck/brainwashing. Just what is it about his show that irritates you? Seriously. I see reviews of the Fed's history, the systematic destruction of our Constitution by progressives in the he early 20th century, the infiltration of marxism into our DoE, union power, etc.  I never heard him promote violence. So what are you hearing? Is it possible that you(and a sizable number of posters here) can be so hateful of anyone that you are incapable of hearing the tv because the wild voices in your head take over and dub anything Beck says?  I hope to God you are never called as a witness for anything because if your emotions kick in your testimony will be absolutely worthless.

Turd, I like your writings but I think your statement is off the cuff and you haven't thought it through. 

The rule of thumb, aka "the line", for free speech issue comes down to "yelling fire in a theater."

It is inappropriate to espouse violence, even if done in a "subtle", "joking manner" or with the use of metaphors.  Think of the Black Panthers, SLA, The Weatherman, Malcolm X, etc.... will the Tea Party and Glen Beck will now be added to that list?

Karl Denninger's "Tea Party" was creditable.  What it has evolvedinto is shameful, an embarrassment and I want no part of it. 

Public figures encouraging acts of violence do bear some responsibility for those acts and should be held accountable.  Yelling fire in a crowded theater.....

Public officials no longer go to their people and drum up support for violence against another country or another people. They simply attack them and bury the bodies. Fund it through drugs and counterfeiting.

They don't even feel it's necessary to justify their actions and haven't since the vietnam war. Save the burning down the world trade center and iraq has weapons of mass destruction.

So should people even be concerned about judgement and simply sell drugs and counterfeit money to fund their violent actions.

All we've done is make trust between and among countries that much more difficult. You could see the saber rattling and know you had to protect yourself. The citizens could see the saber rattling and know they had to protect themselves and prepare. How it is now. You wake up to buildings burning to the ground and empty grocery store shelves and shut off gas pumps.

rocker: This is last reply. I'm tired and I'm not in the mood for an internet argument. However, your condescension demands a reply.

First of all, I asked for a credible source. The "host" of your video is a clueless, agenda-pumping boob. Yes, virtually all the great dictator/murderers were pseudo or real socialists who demanded "power for the people" only to recklessly govern by force and coercion. Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro are all examples. Beck is NOT SAYING that Obama is a murderer. He is, in my opinion, pointing out that socialist/marxist leaders have, in the past, become brutal, murdering despots. Again, NOT THAT OBAMA will. But a country that hands over freedom for the sake of "security", both economic and personal, is headed down the same path.

The "host" also has no understanding of history. What about "National Socialism" equates with right-wing, conservatism? The "nationalist" part, maybe, but certainly not the "socialist" part. He then states that the "national socialists" were the epitome of "right-wingers". Huh? If he's serious, he's delusional.

Lastly, "live free or die" is NOT A THREAT TO KILL POLITICIANS. It is the state motto of New Hampshire, for pete's sake. It was penned by a general from the American Revolution.

You, my friend, are the one who needs to study history. Don't take as truth the bullshit videos that propagate on the web. Do your own homework. I have.

I suggested the above link on you tube because it has what you asked for. A creditable link. It is Glenn Beck's asswipe mouth spitting his hatred for all to here. Check out how many smart people with additional links to the horse's mouth himself who think like I do that Glenn Beck spouts hatred and contempt to any other view but his. His biggest tool is to use "FEAR". Fear has been used against simple minds for a long time. Last time I checked, he is not the all knowing God. Put I do "Fear" what he does and "who" he manipulates. He is your idol. Not mine. I think he is a idiot and tells many lies to accomplish his agenda. 

And speaking of a country that gives up freedom for security. Why do your idols, (Glenn and Sarah), spew such hatred and suggestions to the weak minded? Maybe they are pushing the issue to take my and your personal guns. The motives of the Becks and Palins should be challenged as well as your assumption that I do not agree with you on all points.  I am always willing to learn more. I never close my mind to the free thinkers, I learn from them. It is why I like ZH so much. So many great minds.  Have a Great Day !!!

So since that image was made back in March 2010, she was yelling fire in a crowded theater for 10 months. No one had a problem with the image until someone gets shot. As bad as it sounds, the reaction from you is as bad as fox news - bordering on sensationalism. Are you suggesting that we ban the use of crosshairs and the word "target" in political messages?

I think what Palin said was pretty much spot on given she's a private citizen, and she did it before members of the victim's own party did anything. It's a tragedy and not a 9-11.

9-11 was the start of a hot war on terrorism and everybody knew it the minute the plane hit the second building.  This is more like a Columbine or Ft Hood.

I would hope this finishes her, but I doubt it.  She appeals to a large minority of Americans and many of them have no respect for democracy and would accept violence if it furthered their goals.  Her violent, suggestive language is a reflection of her true nature and of her followers.  Using violent metaphors in a country with lots of armed citizens and knowing there are crazies out there reflects poor judgement and is highly irresponsible... and that the most generous interpretation.  And maybe she is just dumb and was attempting to cater to the machos.  But then again she is dumb enough an cunning enough to be selected by the rulers to be president...a female Bush.  What an insult to the US that someone like her has even a chance.  Dumb shits can ignite under Palin.  interpretation.
