An Open Letter to Roger Ailes, CEO of Fox News; Wayne LaPierre, Spokesman for the NRA; Talk Radio Hosts, both National and Local; Paranoia and Conspiracy Web Sites; and Tea Party Members of State Legislatures and the U.S. Congress.
Stop inciting people to murder.
The violently mentally ill and the gullible are killing children, their wives and themselves, and complete strangers. They have been riled up and given spurious motivations, in a land of easily available high-tech weapons, by you, all to achieve short term political or financial goals. Then they go out and kill.
Intense fear, terror, hate and paranoia are wide spread – all emotions that were rare in our country thirty years ago. Americans should be able to feel safe going to a movie, sending their children off to school, visiting a mall, and going to their workplace. But today they're scared that wherever they go one of the unstable or gullible people that you incite will show up, locked and loaded.
You inspire an atmosphere of terror, hatred and division for the base reasons of greed and political power. Stop. Americans are fed-up with the ugliness you provoke. We resent your attempts to turn our country into a place ruled by violence, injustice and hatred. We rebel at seeing so many lifeless bodies.
We want the America that stands for good, for morality, for honesty and fairness that we used to know. We want you to stop inciting people to hatred and paranoia.
We want you to stop tearing our country apart.
