Thereby proving the point

The Sheriff of Pima County got a lot of heat from teabaggers about his comments about an environment of eliminationist rhetoric bringing the crazies out of the woodwork to attack and kill people. Other bloggers have noted the same thing -- that the right wing rhetoric has been full of talk about "2nd amendment solutions", "watering the tree of liberty", and other such incitements to commit acts of violence against liberals and others that they dislike (such as judges who rule that swarthy Messicans have rights too). And... gosh darn it, they get threats against them from teabaggers. Thereby proving the point. Not that the teabaggers understand that. Huh, go figure.

-- Badtux the Exasperated Penguin


  1. The verbal assaults from the right have been astonishing, in this thing. Someone on the left made a prediction, probably jokingly, but it's starting to be believable. We'll see a demand for an apology... for Giffords to apologize to Palin.

  2. hmmm, InsiderTrading shows Palin's popularity dropping steadily &, as someone else observed, Palin is history.. She didn't "reload", she retreated concerning the facebook posting she removed.. Limbaugh & O'Reilly, however, are doing what they do best.. Attack, even while denigrating those they attack for, you guessed it, attacking! - not to mention confirming their membership in the party of (no) responsibility. What flipping rabbit hole did I drop down?


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
