No violent suggestions from the right? Let's hear and see it in their own words.

"Your leaders will be in the enemy’s crosshairs. You never win playing defense, get on offense! The crossfire is intense, so penetrate enemy territory.  Use your weapons. Shoot with accuracy; aim high and remember it takes blood, sweat and tears to win. No matter how tough it gets, never retreat, instead reload!"
- Sarah Palin's Biography, America by Heart

"I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back."  Michelle Bachmann

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) "If I could start a country with a bunch of people it would be the folks standing out here the last few days. Let’s hope we don’t have to do that. Let’s beat that other side to a pulp. Let’s take them out, let’s chase them down."

On the gay community and same-sex marriage: “This is a very serious matter, because it is our children who are the prize for this community, they are specifically targeting our children.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, appearing as guest on radio program “Prophetic Views Behind The News”, hosted by Jan Markell, KKMS 980-AM, March 20, 2004.

"You know, our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. And in fact Thomas Jefferson said it's good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years.
I hope that's not where we're going, but, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I'll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out."
Sharron Angle in an interview on talk radio, January 

"I don't really like to think of it as a murder. It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester. ... I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don't want to impose my moral values on others." --Ann Coulter on the murder of Kansas abortion doctor George Tiller, FOX News interview, June 22, 2009

"If I'm going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I'll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot."  Ann Coulter

"We need to execute people like (John Walker Lindh) in order to physically intimidate liberals."   Ann Coulter

"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building."   Ann Coulter

"I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo."  Ann Coulter

''If Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.'''

—FOX News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, after San Francisco voted to ban military recruiters from city schools, Nov. 8, 2005

''I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. ... 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.''

—Glenn Beck, May 17, 2005

''The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.''

—Rush Limbaugh

''I just wish Katrina had only hit the United Nations building, nothing else, just had flooded them out, and I wouldn't have rescued them.''

—Bill O'Reilly, on his radio show, Sept. 14, 2005

How dare you point out their hateful violent rhetoric. It might get a liberal all worked up enough to do something about them.

Tom said...

Some words to go with your artful arrangement of chilling quotations and images.

Charlene said...

The attention whores who originally spoke or wrote the words you feature should be made to again speak them in public with the country watching them, in the context of today.

Churlita said...

Wow. That is pretty damn scary.I can't imagine anyone wanting to be part of that movement. It's all so negative and violent. Ugh!

Mommy Lisa said...

It makes me sick. Just sick - all of it.

kirby said...

Nicely done.

Lisa said...

You put in a tremendous amount of work on this.

I'd say their words have spoken for themselves. You can't take that stuff back. And apologize? That is not part of their DNA apparently.

I like Charlene's suggestion. Make them own it now.

In honor of the fairness doctrine: Howard Dean, "I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for." New Republic Editor wrote an article entitled, "The Case for Bush Hatred" and started the piece with the words, "I hate Pres Geo W Bush..." Bush was routinely called "Bushitler." Remember the "Kill Bush" slogan? Or this one, When Gov Bush was delivering his 2000 convention speech Craig Kilborn showed him on his show with the words "Sniper Wanted" underneath his picture. Kerry quote when responding to a Bill Maher joke, "or I could have went to 1600 Penn Ave and killed the real bird with one stone." Charlie Brooker once wrote during the Bush presidency, "John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinkley Jr..where are you now that we need you" Remember the movie "Death of a President?" I will refresh your memory...it's about the assassination of GWB. As a conservative...I will admit the rhetoric gets out of hand. I wonder if you can do the same. The hypocrisy is astounding.

PS- Who has made the claim there are no violent suggestions from the right. I think you misunderstand the issue. The right is on the defense because the left has made claims Jared Loughner killed people because of the hostile political climate caused by the right. We all know that is absolutely not the case. We also know the left is equally guilty when it comes to violent, inappropriate suggestions.
