There’s blood on Beck’s hands
June 13, 2009
It has been amusing to watch the demagogues at Fox News brush off any responsibility for recent killings. The latest technique involves arguing that the perpetrator wasn’t really right-wing in his beliefs, and therefore ‘he’s not in our team’, which is besides the point entirely:
Individuals with borderline-clinical cases of paranoia are always among us, under any administration, even in the most prosperous of economies. They are sick, just like a pedophile or a pyromaniac or a kleptomaniac. Their paranoia can be focused on any number of peoples or theories, and they don’t necessarily fit a left-right classification.
Usually they keep their thoughts to themselves or within the small fringe of like-minded friends. The difference now is that they are being encouraged day in and day out to come out and DO SOMETHING by the right-wing hate mongers.
In other words, the extreme right is using these poor sick people to fight their war, while pretending to wash their hands clean.
What is most sickening is that The News Corporation is allowed to profit off of this violence. How does that make sense?
