The list below is of things those on the left have said about those on the right. It's surely not an complete list but it show the rhetoric on the left is just as vile as that on the right. I don't understand how the left can honestly say that only the right says things like this.
The Discovery Channel shooter said he experienced an “awakening” when he watched former Vice President Al Gore's documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.”: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/38968317/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/ Nobody on the left denounced Mr. Gore's rhetoric, which was been proven to be lies. That have not asked him to stop the rhetoric either.
Hollywood and the record industry are the two major groups who put out violent, hateful imagery as a product to make money from. Both industries have vehemently denied that their products cause people to cause violence. It's not lost on the author that the vast majority of those in the movie and record industries are far left in their ideology. The say they words and images do not cause violence while at the same time saying that words and images used by the left cause violence. That is the definition of hypocrisy.
I do not believe that the words of the movie and music industries cause people to commit violence. I also don't believe the words of politicians on the left or right cause people to commit violence. The blood was not dry on the pavement and the left, including The Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence, were dancing in the blood. Johnathan Alter of Newsweek said '“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste,” Rahm Emanuel famously said in 2008. The same goes for a shooting spree that gravely wounds a beloved congresswoman.' Read the entire article at http://www.newsweek.com/2011/01/10/the-impact-on-obama-s-presidency.html and judge for yourself if Mr. Alter cares for life or cares for the impact that it can have on Obama's Presidency. There will be no outcry from the left over Mr. Alter's callous comments.
