I'm sorry for the tone of this diary, but I am pissed beyond reason.  What the fuck is wrong with you people?  Bill O'Reilly?  Rush Limbaugh?  Ann Coulter?  Michael Savage?  Huh?  Do you think that your repeated calls for violence, which you chuckle off as jokes or misstatements, have nothing to do with the fact that some lunatic squeezed off a few shells into a fucking church watching a motherfucking children's production of Annie?  You think it's just some weird coincidence that your side, which always laughs about killing Obama on sight or targeting judges for murder, also includes these fuck jobs to kill liberals, gays, blacks, jews, abortion providers, and anyone who supports them?

Question:  When was the last time you read about a progressive, gay, jewish man unloading on a crowd of Southern Baptists?  

Answer:  Never, you schmuck!

You think that might have something to do with the fact that our guys on the radio aren't demonizing you as enemies of God and advising their listeners to shoot on sight?  You think it might be because our authors spend their time attacking your ideas rather than suggesting to their readers that you deserve death?

I wonder what your hate mail looks like.  Does it look like the shit our guys get?  Do you get regular death threats against yourself and your families?  Do they come in all caps with every fucking word misspelled?

When are you guys going to stop preaching hate and violence?  When are you going to condemn any and all calls to terrorist conduct?  When are you going to say "NEVER AGAIN!" and mean it?  As far as I'm concerned, you're inciting terrorist attacks, and this time one of your fucking disciples shot up the church where I went to school as a child in the town where I grew up.  From this moment forward, you are no longer blowhards reciting stupid party lines for your corrupt masters.  When someone wants to talk to me about Bill O'Reilly or Ann Coulter, my one and only response is that you incite and applaud terrorism and you must be brought to justice.

That doesn't mean violence, by the way, it means punitive damages and prison time.

I was thinking about suggesting that we all post incidents in which someone from the other side called for violence or just spewed hate upon fellow Americans.  Instead, I think it would be better to focus on the positive.  So, please post any stories or snippets of people on our side working for peace at home and abroad.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
