On the History of Right Wing Hate Media

Interesting video on how the same folks who funded and promoted JFK’s assassination are funding today’s Tea Party…

This is today –

This is the face of Domestic terrorism. While your average Tea Party member isn’t guilty of anything…

The folks who pay for their movement, fund hate radio and hate TV, and fund this sort of over the top demonization in hopes of raising another Lee Harvey Oswald…

Are guilty of Terrorism.

Those Peace Loving Conservatives and Inciting Violence

Found this list of conservative quotes on radio and TV inciting violent attacks on Democrats and Liberals. This really is nothing more than domestic terrorism.

Here are some more measured and reasonable comments:

Rush Limbaugh: “I tell people don’t kill all the liberals. Leave enough so we can have two on every campus – living fossils – so we will never forget what these people stood for.”

Senator Phil Gramm: “We’re going to keep building the party until we’re hunting Democrats with dogs.”

Rep. James Hansen on Bill Clinton: Get rid of the guy. Impreach him, censure him, assassinate him.”

John Derbyshire intimated in the National Review that because Chelsea Clinton had “the taint,” she should “be killed.”

Ann Coulter: “We need to execute people like John Walker in order to physically intimidate liberals, by making them realize that they can be killed, too.”

Ann Coulter: “My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building.”

Bill O’Reilly: “ll those clowns over at the liberal radio network, we could incarcerate them immediately. Will you have that done, please? Send over the FBI and just put them in chains.”

Clear Channel radio host Glenn Beck said he was “thinking about killing Michael Moore” and pondered whether “I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it,” before concluding: “No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out — is this wrong?”

Joyce Kaufman: “If ballots don’t work, bullets will.”

Michelle Bachmann: “Be armed and dangerous”

Michael Savage: “Only vigilance and resistance to this baby dictator, Barack Hussein Obama, can prevent the Khmer Rouge from appearing in this country”

Erick Ericksson: “At what point do the people … march down to their state legislator’s house, pull him outside, and beat him to a bloody pulp?”

The Messenger of Hate, Faux News…Blinks

I think when even Roger Ailes realizes the Assassination attempt on Giffords and murder of 6 people, including a 9 year old girl has set off a reaction by the American public that is both visceral and a potential tidal wave against the hate games these guys have been using to control the electorate…

Fox News Prez Orders Staff: Tone It Down

Fox News President Roger Ailes has warned his staff to tone down right-wing rhetoric as America debates whether political vitriol played a role in the violent attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. “I told all of our guys, ‘Shut up, tone it down, make your argument intellectually. You don’t have to do it with bombast,'” Ailes said in an interview with Global Grind. “I hope the other side does that as well,” he added. That’s not to say Ailes is buying the argument that harsh political attacks or Sarah Palin’s map marking Giffords’ district with crosshairs had anything to do with the deadly attack by suspected gunman Jared Lee Loughner.

To get a feel for what it is like on the groound in Arizona – one of the local papers:

Arizona’s enemy: The Collective Consciousness of Hate

Just an overview of the State of Hate in Arizona.

This Graphic ties some of the bits and pieces of what is going on in Arizona together. Like a lot of places, you have a cozy relationship between the Republican Party, Republican Candidates, and the Tea Party with fringe hate groups including the neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the splinter racist Minuteman Militias.

What has happened in Arizona is that these groups – sometimes directly in the statehouse as legislative aides and in writing laws have managed to get a voice in the legislature and Governors Mansion, working directly for Republican legislators. This is a little different than in the South where Republican Legislators sneak out to a Council of Conservative Citizens Barbeque or confab every year to press the flesh with part of the base – but otherwise try and keep the white sheets away from the state house.

Here is an article about one of the leading right-wing hate-talk radio personalities in Arizona – John Justice –  NY Times reports on Jon Justice and hate radio in Tucson

Come on out and shoot a machine gun to “target” Gabrielle Giffords? Flashback: Giffords Opponent Had M16 Shooting Event, ‘Help Remove Gabrielle Giffords From Office’

And lastly this –

Hate Speech, the Right’s Magic Bullet

…The fact is, it has been the right’s goal to poison our political discourse for years. Remember the notorious “GOPAC Memo” back in the 1990s, created for the Republicans’ leadership training institute and endorsed by Newt Gingrich? Titled “Language: A Key Mechanism of Control,” in it, candidates are instructed in what words to use when defining their opponents (i.e., liberals). “These are powerful words that can create a clear and easily understood contract,” the memo said. “Apply these to the opponent, their record, proposals, and their party” (in other words, demonize them).

Among them: intolerant … lie … pathetic … radical … sick … steal … traitors. Gingrich and his allies deliberately set out to employ toxic language against their opponents, and are still doing it. They will say anything to get a vote, especially now that the angriest and most irrational so often make up a majority of those who bother to go to the polls. This kind of talk is part and parcel of their strategy, and no matter what motivated the Tucson killings, it needs to stop.

Their lock-and-load rhetoric is reinforced by the rambling ranks of those who go on the Internet to spout any conspiracy theory, distortion of history or outright lie that helps them make it through the night. Add, too, the men and women of radio and television, the Limbaugh’s, Beck’s, and their ilk who use the airwaves as a cudgel, battering viewers and listeners with the certainty of their illogic, their thinly veiled messages of bigotry and meretricious embrace of Constitution, religion, flag and family.

All of them will huff and puff that this is an isolated incident by a madman that cannot be blamed on their bombast and bluster. But let’s call it out for what it is; let’s debate what in our gut we know to be true: even if it was not their intent, it’s likely the words of the right on radio and TV and in the books they publish spurred on the man who killed two and wounded six in a Knoxville, Kentucky, church in July 2008, and the murderer of George Tiller, one of the few doctors in America who still performed late-term abortions for women with problem pregnancies whose health was at stake from life-threatening complications, or whose infants would be born dead or dying. Their invective, whether inadvertently or not, has encouraged the vandalism and threats faced by so many of our candidates and elected officials, including the now desperately wounded Congresswoman Giffords. Her shooting, and the death and wounding of so many who came to meet with her, are just the latest example of ideologically-motivated bloodshed.

One Down – Many to Go. Michael Savage Dropped From Radio Station

The first, in what will be a long line of pins fell yesterday – with Conservative blowhard Michael Savage loosing his flagship, and home station…

Due to cancellation.

Apparently, a number of advertisers dropped advertising on his show due to over the top comments…

Glenn Beck, Anyone?

If It Quacks Like a Duck… Conservatism and Whining About Being Identified as Racist

This is one of two videos by conservative talk jock Alex Jones. Now, conservatives have dominated the radio air waves since shortly after Raygun killed the Fairness Doctrine, and the FCC began loosening rules on station ownership allowing radio stations to be consolidated as Right Wing propaganda outlets under a few owners. The ability to propagandize their talking points 24 x 7 over the airwaves without criticism, or offering up opposing viewpoints has been a foundation of the success of the Republican Party and the spread of conservatism.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

That is beginning to change. And the fear is palpable among conservative commentators who have ramped up vitriolic, and often racist commentary in an attempt to rally the base listenership. This particular conservative, tries and make the rather weak point, that anyone calling conservative commentary “racist”, even when it is racist – is violating the First Amendment Rights and is dragging the country into a totalitarian state.

Talking Heads Stir Paranoia Among White Men

Listening to Glenn Beck and Michelle Maliken this week you would have to believe that every old white guy in the country has a bulls eye painted on his back. White victimization is a popular string among the racist set, where a long line of perceived disadvantages manufacture the justification for hate.

The target audience for this currently is disaffected older white males, who are suffering from the recession/depression which was manufactured by failed conservative policies. Obviously, it is Beck and his kindred talking heads job to point the blame at Minorities – instead of squarely at folks like him who enabled the crippling of the nation’s economy.

Turns out there is some real pain out there to leverage racial hatred from –
