Poll: Is Fox and Hate Radio Responsible for the Arizona Shooting
the answer is yes...
You guys are sick with lots of hate if you're blaming anyone other than
the mad man who pulled the trigger.
How in the world can fox be at fault, this is stretching things to far
and you should be ashamed of yourselves.
"I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could
kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. No, I
think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and
I could just be choking the life out." -- Glenn Beck, May 17, 2005
Michael Reagan, son of the former president, suggested that people who
claim that "nine-eleven was an inside job," a U.S. government
conspiracy, deserve to die.
MICHAEL REAGAN: "Take them out and shoot them. They are traitors to this
country, and shoot them. But anybody who would do that doesn't deserve
to live. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that's what they are,
and you shoot them dead. I'll pay for the bullet."
Mother of man accused of threatening Pelosi blames Fox News
ELEANOR GIUSTI: Greg has -- frequently gets in with a group of
people that have really radical ideas and that are not consistent with
myself or the rest of the family and -- which gets him into problems.
And apparently I would say this must be another one that somehow he's
gotten onto either by -- I'd say Fox News or all of those that are
really radical, and he -- that's where he comes from.
Gregory Giusti allegedly "made dozens of calls" to Pelosi threatening
her not to support health care reform. On April 7, Los Angeles Times
reported that following Gregory Giusti's arrest: "Several federal
officials say the man made dozens of calls to Pelosi's homes in
California and Washington, D.C., and to her husband's business office.
The suspect allegedly recited her home address and said that if she
wanted to see it again, she should not support the healthcare overhaul
bill that was recently signed."
BECK: So, Speaker Pelosi, I just wanted to -- you gonna drink your
wine? Are you blind? Do those eyes not work? There you -- I want you to
drink it now. Drink it. Drink it. Drink it.
I really just wanted to thank you for having me over here to wine
country. You know, to be invited, I thought I had to be a major
Democratic donor or a longtime friend of yours, which I'm not.
By the way, I put poison in your -- no, I -- I look forward to all
the policy discussions that we're supposed to have -- you know, on
health care, energy reform, and the economy. [Glenn Beck 8/6/09]
During a long conspiracy theory about a "super-national authority" that
will oversee U.S. financial institutions, Fox News contributor Dick
Morris asserted that because President Obama's policies are
"internationalist ... [t]hose crazies in Montana who say, 'We're going
to kill ATF agents because the U.N.'s going to take over' -- well,
they're beginning to have a case." [Fox News' Your World with Neil
"The pieces that the president needs to control every aspect of your
life, to fundamentally transform America, will be finished. He'll have
them all," adding: "If health care does not pass, warning, those on the
left are going to become violent." [The Glenn Beck Program, 3/5/10]

Glenn Beck's attacks on the Tides Foundation are being linked to a
heavily-armed man's attempt to assassinate the progressive
Specifically, his dozens of comments attacking the Tides Foundation are
being linked to the attempt by a heavily-armed man to assassinate
employees at the San Francisco-based foundation, which funds
environmental, human rights, and other progressive projects. The attack
in July was thwarted in a shoot-out with police in which two officers
Since then, alleged attacker Byron Williams has said in jailhouse
interviews that he wanted to “start a revolution.” Said beck was not to
“I would have never started watching Fox News if it wasn't for the
fact that Beck was on there. And it was the things that he did, it was
the things he said that blew my mind.”
Some law enforcement officials agree.
"The Becks of the world are people who are venting their opinions and it
is inflammatory, it generates a lot of emotion and generates in some
people overreaction that apparently happened in the California case,"
Rich Roberts of the International Union of Police Associations, which
represents some 500 local police unions, told the progressive media
watchdog Media Matters for America. "Inflammatory speech has a tendency
to trigger those kinds of emotions."
Speaking of the alleged attack on the Tides Foundation by Byron
Williams, Rep. Peter King (R) of New York, senior Republican on the
Homeland Security Committee, said in an e-mail to Media Matters: “It is
important that everyone in public life, whether on the right or on the
left, realize that words have consequences.”
Yesterday, malice-mongers Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh attacked liberals
for being outraged at the use of hate-speech and violent rhetoric. Beck
then spoke of the need to take action before it’s too late to stop the
fall of the Republic, while asking his listeners to use the gold-pawning
business that funds his programs.
Glenn Beck makes a fool of himself. On his website he has a picture of
himself holding a gun and the quote, ‘We must stand together against
violence.’ :\ The page is now conveniently taken down. Good thing
Internet nerds caught the picture.Loading Image...
