    Carried out by the right, meaning a person of the rightwing ideology committed the act.

    Agreed?

    I'm not hedging. Just say you agree or not and then I can go look it up and see.

    P.S. This is silly. I think even you've realized that you wildly overspoke. I'm not going to play this game.

    You can't even construct a logical sentence. No point in trying to engage you further. Good luck with all that rightwing anger.

    The far-righties come armed and dangerous to their protests...

    That's the difference.

    It is apparent from interview with his mother that this man watches Fox News. The claims that Fox News made since the beginning of the Health Care debate has been one that favored exaggeration and emotional stimulus. It's call entertainment.

    This man has a criminal history and issues with discretion.

    I do not think anything should be done to Fox News, or any media outlet for the responsibility of it's viewership, but we must not let it go unnoticed. And saying that there is no responsibility Fox News has to the emotional responses of its viewership is like saying a rapper whose listener commits a crime, as advertised in his/her song bares no social responsibility for what they put on the airwaves. They do bare responsibility as it exists in a social sphere, but they do not bare legal responsibility.
    Please prove the two points I've labeled in bold above.

    If Fox is so dangerous as to be influencing people to commit or threaten violent acts, why on earth wouldn't you want something done to them?

    I agree completely.

    I wish people would say the same about money in politics too.
