    Re: Arizona Sheriff Blasts Rush Limbaugh for Spewing 'Irresponsible' Vitriol

    paul kanjorski's op ed appeared in this morning's ny times, the now characteristic call for "civility and respect"

    fine

    paul kanjorski, october 3, on florida's new republican governor rick scott:

    "That Scott down there that's running for governor of Florida," Mr. Kanjorski said. "Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him. He stole billions of dollars from the United States government and he's running for governor of Florida. He's a millionaire and a billionaire. He's no hero. He's a damn crook. It's just we don't prosecute big crooks."
    Dem Congressman who called for GOP Gov. to be put against a wall and shot now pleads for civility | Washington Examiner

    on tsunami tuesday, kanjorksi lost his seat, PA11, scranton, wilkes-barre, to republican lou barletta by double digits

    Actually, broad generalizations are where too many live.

    I fully expect you to defend the next person that says that conservatives don't like minorities. They obviously don't mean every single conservative and you wouldn't want to play that game.

    I've listened to Rush's show off and on for years and while I have known him to take call from Democrats, he usually will only accept such calls if he can find something about the commentary to put down. Rarely, if ever, will he accept a call from someone who's position not only goes contrary to his point of view, but from anyone who's more factual than he is. Of course, what radio talk show host wants to be shown up by any caller no matter what side of the isle he's from? Of course, he and others like him have to cater to their base. Same goes for Liberal talk show host; but since I don't get Liberal talk radio shows here where I live, I couldn't tell you if they do the same thing in such mean spirited ways.

    Maybe someone who does listen to Liberal talk radio jocks can elaborate and/or give their perspective. What I can tell you is of the Conservative talk radio host I've listened to - Rush, Hannity, Levin and Coulter - rarely do they take a call from a Liberal whose point of view they agree with even slightly. But I've come to expect that from them. Again, they're catering to their base. Is their commentary toxic? Let's just say they all tend to edge up to that imaginary line and hide behind free speech to obsolve themselves of being responsible for the level of anxiety they knowingly create. They want their listeners to get upset what what they consider to be wrongful decisions made by the Left even if half of what they report on found to be true.

    But again, they're catering to their base. So, to them anything and everything they say is worthwhile as long as they can claim, "I didn't say take matters into your own hands except at the voting booth."

    I used to listen to Air America all the time. I would say it was 100 times worse then what I ever witnessed with Limbaugh - who I haven't listened to in a while. Both the anger expressed by the hosts and the calls that they took.

    I can watch MSNBC, but I couldn't tolerate Air America at all. That's how bad it was. It was pure hate in my opinion. Not surprising they went bankrupt.

    The fairness doctrine was in place during all these assassinations. Conservative talk radio can't be blamed for any of them. But gee... now talk radio is the whole problem and we need the fairness doctrine back according to some in Congress.

    Alright then, if it wasn't some vitriole-spewing fool like Beck or Limbaugh that turned the shooter against the Congresswoman, who was it?

    Does this mentally deranged bastard strike you as the type who formulated his own complex political stance and acted in the hopes of bettering humanity set by his intelligent moral standard in shooting the Congresswoman, or was he, more likely, egged on by some warmongering neo-con advocating the violent reconquista of America from those evil commie-nazi-muslim-lefites?
