You are a political type so you know that this was not a one time rant for this guy. This Breitbart guy might be a nut but is not an anchor on Fox as Sharpton is on MSNBC.
    Except it is not one person. The same thing has been said here on this forum.

    Breitbart is a right wing opinion leader. To dismiss him as just one person is what he wants to happen from those not on the far right.

    There definitely are. I'm one of them, and I count several others among my friends and family.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I agree and will restate. There are nutty groups on both left and right. What is wrong is to paint with two broad a brush in my view.

    You did not mention anything on the Sharpton point, are you comfortable having him as one of the left's opinion leaders, I'm not.

    Since when has Sharpton been one of the "lefts" opinion leaders?

    I just thought Breitbart was full of it. I'm not meaning to paint the whole Right with anything, but I still think he's a sad POS. It reminds me of the Tea Party sign that read: "Unarmed. This time." Threats of violence are the last resort of the desperate, but the first resort of the idiot.

    Praying this is hyperbole from Breitbart. The last thing this country needs is another civil war.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    Yes, the Far Right.

    But not the mainstream Right-wing nor the mainstream GOP. And there's even a small number of Tea Partiers who are against this kind of vitriol too.

    And it is at times like these when it's more important for mainstream right-wingers and moderate Republicans to disown this kind of rhetoric.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
