The image right wing radio uses to influence it’s listeners.

In a fantasy, I would change places and beat the daylights out of each and every one of those listed below. Except the women of course. After all, I am not a heartless animal and besides, my wife and daughters wouldn’t let me. Not beat them to death mind you, but just enough to let them know who’s boss once and for all and to repent for their sins. After all, I am an empathetic humanist. It’s easy to be responsibility free of the consequences your words can create,  whether it be typing on a key board or talking into a microphone. If nothing else, the President should be admired for holding his cool. It would really be great if he just thought “Fuck it. I’m going to drive this load of pineapples to Hawaii.” The first thing I would do would be to set up a FEMA camp, complete with formaldehyde contaminated trailers and put Glenn Beck into one and lock the door.  Like the Wish Factory, I would make all his dreams come true. I would force Limbaugh to debate me while playing basketball with all of his ex-wives and their lawyers watching.  I would ask Ben Carson  if he actually knew anything about Nazi Germany and Hitlers opinion of Blacks. And, for a while I’d have his eyes wired open and force him to watch grainy black and white films of the Holocaust.  I’d make Sean Hannity live with Ann Coulter in a one room NYC tenement. Real Time with Bill Maher would be all they could watch and Sean discovers Ann is really a liberal male from Hoboken  NJ. There’s to many birthers, Muslim and Marxist nitwits to go after but I think they’d get the message.

Speaking of messages, here are some samples of theirs.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Ben Carson comparing progressives to Nazis and insulting Jews as an unintended extra added bonus.  Rush Limbaugh comparing the President to Joseph Stalin and using flags behind a podium as evidence. Then opining that he will declare himself King and ruler for life just to make sure everyone is suffering equally from the agony of  health care. Oh, and that the President is impeachment proof because he’s black therefore he can get away with lawlessness of the most egregious order.
Glenn Beck calling him a dictator who has a deep seated hatred for white people. Claiming that bank regulations are undeniable evidence of socialism. Make Sarah Palin actually spend time with terrorists. Terrorists who force her to learn English. My god, can you imagine the horror of that?  Take all the lunatic shut down the government impeachment happy congress people to an island and have at it. Lord of the Flies style. Have Rafael and Ted Cruz host a birthday party for Castro. Lastly, make Michelle Bachman repeat over and over and over again, “There is no god and Jesus is a myth the Jews made up like a 1 BC punking.

    Mitch,
    Chill. Seriously chill. They aren’t worth it and they are losing and they know it.
    Think about it.
    neo, spook and csl are so scared they have to carry guns with them everywhere they go. Gays are getting married all over the world and the only thing they can do is try to legalize discrimination. Pot is legal in two states. Things are so bad they are railing against Tolerance, Compassion, Being nice, Self-Esteem, and Diversity. I can’t wait for them to run campaigns against those values.

    Their idea of immigration reform is not reforming immigration. They are pissing off almost every demographic in the country except old white males and they are proud of it.

    They are losing. They’re just taking their time.

    Mitch,
    My advice about tired. Let him post and ignore him. Let the rest of us kick his butt. It’s not like he’s going to win an argument.

    Do I need to post the many Nazi references Chris Matthews has tossed about?

    Should I post the vile and hateful things said about Sen. Tim Scott, Clarence Thomas, Larry Elder, Condi Rice, etc., etc.?

    I don’t know why people care so much about what other people say. You have to have thick skin to live in a free speech society – but at the end of the day, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

      I would love for you to post the Nazi references Matthews has tossed about. I doubt he compared any elected official or enacted policy to either Hitler or Nazi Germany. These references are not isolated incidents spoken by a few fringe wack outs. Here’s an example. Would you defend a congressman who remains silent during a Town Hall meeting while a constituent calls for the President to be “shot for treason” by saying Oh, that’s free speech for ya! How cute! Yep It’s free speech. No argument there. It’s also a profound lack of respect if not for the man but the office. The congressman’s silence is a tacit agreement. Would you say it’s free speech if a stranger insulted you or a member of your family?
      “I don’t know why people care so much about what other people say.” I do. What if what was being said was “We’re going to enact a health care law.”?

        Well first of all, calling for the POTUS to be “shot for treason” would get the attention of the Secret Service and is not exactly allowed. And here’s just one Chris Matthews reference:

        After playing a portion of clips of Cruz speaking to conservative audiences, Matthews noted that the junior senator from Texas has said even more inflammatory things off camera. “In 2010, when he said that [Barack] Obama would make a perfect president of Harvard Law School because, quote, ‘There were fewer declared Republicans in the faculty when we were there than communists,’” Matthews reported. “I’m assuming, of course, that the communists would vote for the president.” “This guy goes pretty far, but I think he fits in the tradition of Father Coughlin (Nazi sympathizer), and [Joe] McCarthy, and of course, maybe to a lesser extent, Pat Buchanan, and [Bill] O’Reilly,” Matthews said. He noted that all of the people he listed “look a lot alike” as well, and each have “black Irish” features. “They don’t smile much,” Matthews added.

        “Black Irish” features?? Interesting. And I will also remind you of the many, many times, Bush was referred to as Hitler, so this type of speech is exactly a new development

        Wait a minute. I asked for Matthews referring to Nazi references. Where are they?

        You didn’t like the example I gave you? Here’s another one:

        Talking to two fellow liberals on Monday October 22, 2012, Chris Matthews trashed conservatives and Republicans who oppose Barack Obama’s birth control policies as “Nazis.” Matthews smeared, “Is it in society’s interests for [a young woman’s] boss to be able to be the birth control Nazi to decide who gets it and who doesn’t?”

        And here are a couple of other notable examples of civility amongst the left:

        Comedian and actress Janeane Garofalo was a constant critic of Bush, once referring to the Bush administration as the “43rd Reich.”

        Actor David Clennon, of the television series The Agency and Ghost Whisperer, said, “I’m not comparing Bush to Adolf Hitler—because George Bush, for one thing, is not as smart as Adolf Hitler. And secondly George Bush has much more power than Adolf Hitler ever had.”

        Well ya got me there. But I don’t think those two are representative of the left as a percentage, as are the Tea Party types on the right. The left has no equivalent to Limbaugh or Beck or Michael Savage and Alex Jones for that matter. All of them make a living saying divisive outrageous things. And get away with it. They have no honor. Zero.
        The difference that I see between Bush and Obama is that people made fun of Bush’s speaking gaffs and questioned his intelligence. And the whole Iraq invasion didn’t help much either. Just more fuel for the fire.
        But with Obama, it’s his humanity that’s questioned. His legitimacy to be President suspect. The questioning of his birth place, his religion, his sexuality, his social and economic philosophies. All geared to undermine his accomplishments and his Presidency. And if anyone claims race has nothing to do with it, I say bullshit. Talk to some economically disadvantaged people. Or people with little education and ask them what they think. People who’s day to day experience is them against the world. And you know what? They are easy to manipulate. They all have radios and it’s just human nature to look for a scapegoat. What do you think sparked the Holocaust? Chopped Liver? They are told day in and day out that their lot in life is someone elses fault. That it’s those lazy good for nothing takers with their food stamps and Obama phones and free concierge health service. They are the reasons why manufacturing jobs were moved overseas years ago. It’s those people; those takers who have access to huge sums of money and are in a position to manipulate financial markets to satisfy fathomless greed. It’s all their fault! So historically, what has been the end result of all of this, this classism? The haves and the have nots. I know the answer. It’s the same old story. I know the answer because I consider myself a well informed human being. Someone who can look backward and patterns. Sees that human behavior is primarily based on emotion. Our evolutionary heritage one of survival, like every other living creature on this planet. Maybe those Limbaugh and Beck listeners should realize that if they want someone to blame, start with someone with an attitude like Rush. He despises his listeners because they believe him. He (and others like him) think they are rubes. As do some politicians. They’re just more fat cats. Out to protect their own. Here’s an image. Troops questioning Generals.
        They piss down our backs and tell us that it’s raining.

        Some folks are born to wave the flag, Ooh they’re red, white and blue.
        And when the band plays “Hail to the chief” Ooh, they point the cannon at you.
        Some folks are born silver spoon in hand, Lord don’t they help themselves.
        But when the tax man comes to the door, Lord the house looks like a rummage sale.
        Some folks inherit star spangled eyes. Ooh they send you down to war. And when you ask them “How much should we give?” They only answer More! more! more!

      “You have to have thick skin to live in a free speech society – but at the end of the day, I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

      I’ll drink to that!

      Of course, everybody has their limit, and everybody’s limit is different, but still, being able to let things slide is an important life skill.

    I agree about letting tired post. I didn’t follow all of the long back-and-forth the past few days, but it seems like he was debating the merits. One of thing about these comments: Why does everyone feel they need to get in the last word? tired can make his point. You can make your point. You two will likely never agree no matter how many times you respond to each other. But perhaps readers will take something away that they didn’t know or consider before.

      I agree about letting tired post. I didn’t follow all of the long back-and-forth the past few days, but it seems like he was debating the merits.

      Well then you missed his charming, meritless attack on me at the end of the “Republican hostage taking” thread where he baselessly called me a liar and a hypocrite. As evidence he claimed I had said THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what I had actually said, lied about other things, and would not answer my repeated question which would have helped resolve the matter. Not that I care if he posts or not; I can handle the likes of Tired. But please let’s not pretend we’re dealing with someone who is rationally “debating the merits”, it’s quite evident his number one goal is to disrupt and I think Mitch’s breakdown of his other various pathologies is spot on.

        Okay, it seemed like he made an attempt and things went downhill from there. I’m not a big fan of tired’s Internet persona, but he’s not the only one who gets belligerent with little provocation. (Actually, he is often belligerent from the get-go, which is unfortunate.) Maybe it’s the nature of things, I don’t know. But there is proof that we can have a civil debate here: http://allpolyticsnow.com/2014/01/14/he-threw-popcorn-at-me-so-i-stood-my-ground/

        Who ever said we can’t have a civil debate here? Not me. My contention is that Tired is incapable of civil debate; I really think that’s an unarguable point but it can be falsified – show me a thread where Tired remained civil. You’ll have a hard time locating a single civil post of his.

    I agree with Meursault and Cluster on this one. Although what these right wing loons say is abhorrent, it’s best ignored and often most damaging to themselves. It’s also important to remember that political vitriol is nothing new and was apparently much worse a century ago. However, in this age I do think there is often a false equivalency going on, with the left the provocateurs are mostly comedians, actors and fringe media figures while on the right the venom is often coming from elected Republicans, major media icons and conservative leaders.

      Yes yes, that’s what I was trying to say. Comedians and social satirists are not elected officials. Or listened to talk show hosts. Even though they are both are immensely popular, neither Jon Stewart or Bill Maher have that large of an audience. And Rachel (who I think is the greatest investigative report around today) does a great job of connecting the dots in an easy to understand manner but she to doesn’t have the audience. Yet.
      It’s to bad Keith Olberman pissed off his employers. I sure miss his caustic wit.
