    Not once in any of my posts did I say that this Fox News caused this person to do anything, but it certainly influence him.
    Yeah, I'm sure his history of mental problems had nothing to do with his actions.

    Again you fail to understand English.

    Mental problems are just an influence that culminated into threatening Pelosi.

    The thing is, to actively denounce them. I notice a reluctance in some quarters of the right, to do that. Why won't the Tea Party folks denounce the racists and loons that attend their events?

    Even here, someone has posted they would like to see Pelosi returned to the "ecology". When folks from the conservative side of the spectrum won't denounce the loons, it leads us to believe they condone the behavior and thus are welcome in their ranks.
    In the case of this healthcare bill, he could easily be a Liberal; pissed off that the bill doesn't go nearly far enough towards what the Liberals really want. He just might be some cat that just found out that the legislation doesn't take affect for four years and he isn't getting a damn thing for free.

    Re: AP sources: FBI arrests man for threatening Pelosi

    I think the trash talk coming out of FOX News, talk radio and other conservative sources incited this mentally challenged individual to act in a threatening manner towards Speaker Pelosi.

    For most people, they understand that when someone on FOX News says President Obama is destroying America or some asshole on the radio says Speaker Pelosi is murdering your grandma, they understand that this is a form of entertainment where the viewers' own prejudices and predispositions are being affirmed and reinforced.

    It's a kind of ego stroking that feels good and mostly harms no one, at least that's the claim. Their case of no harm, no foul breaks down when a mentally challenged individual such as Gregory Giusti starts making threatening phone calls to Speaker Pelosi. Then it's not so harmless anymore. And, at some point, somebody tries to do something worse and this malicious little name calling game goes down in history as an inexplicable, infamous act of a lone, deranged individual.

    It's time for leaders on both sides to tone it down; Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) on the left and a cast of hundreds on the right. The current political class are like a group of children playing with matches: sooner or later somebody gets burned.

    What about the trash talk coming from the Left about Bush's administration? That was okay? Of cooooooourse it was.

    Just like on the thread about Rove getting assaulted, or when Ann Coulter was assaulted at Columbia during a speech. That's okay, because they deserve it. Right?

    This kind of bull**** went on all the time prior to the Democrat takeover and it was ignored, both by the MSM as well as Liberals in general. These are the same tactics used by Leftists. It's time you all reap what you've sewn.

    Remember, "..get in their faces..."? Who was it that said that?

    You're asking instead of assuming? Amazing.

    Two wrongs do make a right after all. And when rightwingers are again attacked, it will be okay again! Cool!



    P.S. "Sown" not "sewn."

    Mary Landrieu threatened Bush with assault. Show us the Liberal outrage, please. Thanks in advance.

    Got the guts to answer the question? Probably not. Huh?

    No, actually it wasn't okay, it was a distraction from the legitimate grievances that liberals had with the previous administration.

    Now join me in calling for our political leaders to tone it down, stop the name calling and ridiculous accusations.

    Then I'm sure for consistency's sake, when conservatives get attacked by liberals in the future, you'll say, "well, conservatives did it to liberals in the past, so it's time they reap what they sow", right?

    Sure. I've already stated that I'm in favor of a little head knocking. I think we need to spill a little blood and see whose tougher. I'm ready.
