Now this article certainly had me thinking. Is there a right wing hatred running wild? Or is this something that has been put out there for everyone to be swayed one way or the other? If I watch Fox News I am almost inclined to agree with this article. If I watch CNN I am inclined to not agree with this article. It's all so confusing. Who or what is behind this push to sway us really?


The radical right, aided by a GOP Noise Machine that positively dwarfs what existed in 1963, has turned demonizing Obama--making him into a vile object of disgust--into a crusade. It's a demented national jihad, the likes of which this country has not seen in modern times. But I've been thinking about Dallas in 1963 because I've been recalling the history and how that city stood as an outpost for the radical right, which never tried to hide its contempt for the New England Democrat. Today, conservatives are expressing outrage that Rep. Nancy Pelosi had the nerve to raise concerns about the onrush of violent political rhetoric. The Noise Machine claims it has no idea what Pelosi's talking about. But the truth is, America's most famous bouts of political violence (i.e. JFK, Oklahoma City, etc.) have always been accompanied by waves of radical, right-wing rhetoric. Given that history, the GOP's insistence that the hate now filling the streets couldn't possibly inspire violence seems woefully naive.


mediamatters.org...

Is it our desire for strife that feeds this machine? Is it the elite's agendas running against eachother? Or is this article actually summing up what is happening? Is it the reality of our current situation?

These are only rubbish threads, that people like the secret service want. Nothing will happen to obama as long as the secret service protects him.

Obama is safe enough.

Left Wing Assassins


Guns don't kill presidents, Democrats do. Politically motivated presidential assassinations come from only one side of the political spectrum.

We have been pointing out for a long time that political violence is part of the left's stock and trade, and that political violence perpetrated by Republicans is almost non-existent.**

Snap out of it people it's nothing more then divide and conquer.

Thank god you said it.
Take the blinders off people and start seeing this right wing left wing crap for what it is.
Divide and conquer is right.
Lately I hate reading most threads as all they are doing is spewing more right wing left wing crap.
Quit fanning the flames guys.

If I recall correctly Oswald was a commie wasn’t he? And for the most part isn’t the far left in this country commies/socialist? So ummm who killed JFK (if you belive the official story) Wasnt that Oswald?

It may be that simple, but than again it may not be. I would refer you to this thread. It is all about the JFK assassination and raises some serious questions. It is lengthy though.

That is what I'm looking into. Who or what is driving this agenda? Or is it the reality of our current state of affairs? When the smoke settles, who will be laughing?

I think Oswald killed JFK, but he had help, even with todays ultra powerful rifle scopes and high power guns. It would be hard to hit a moving target from the distance he shot Kennedy.

Now as to who is pulling the strings, the more and more every day passes I feel there is something evil and sinster that is going on... Our leaders can not be this stupid, how can we have back to back idiots for Presidents?

We need our leaders don't we? We want them to serve our needs and be partial to what we believe. We want them to be smart enough to know when to act on our behalf in matters of war. We want them to be the epitome of what we hold dear. Strange isn't it?

Very informative link lucentenigma. I like it. Does this lead us to believe that these people were persuaded by the machine? I would have to say so.

We dont need the ones we have in office right now. I think the states need to pass an amendment to the constition to disband all political parties and term limits on all the of congrees and the senate, fresh new people every 2 and 6 years.

I don't know if we can relate our current situation to anything from the past, but I believe that the right wing is behind the hatred that people are feeling toward Obama, telling them what to think and how to feel. Too many people are jumping on the bandwagon without ANY facts. It's a little scary. I hope the Secret Service does its job well.

I didn't know that Timothy McVeigh was a lefty...
Or that cat who killed Doctor Tiller
Or that cat who killed the guard at the Holocaust Museum

I disagree that "ALL" political violence comes from the left. I reject that out of hand.

Watch False-News for one complete day (If you can), then watch msnbc for one full day (again, if you can), then come back here and answer the question of which network seems to be promoting violence hatred, intolerance and using scare tactics.

I don't think Obama is in any danger at all. To me it seems that he is serving the elitists goals. Now if he actually took a stand for the people than we would have to worry about his safety. This is just my opinion Benevolent, don't hate me please.

Oh, I don't hate you, man. In fact, I like what I've read from you. I don't have a problem with people disagreeing with me.
I think Obama is in danger, not from the powers, but from SOME of the yahoos out there listening to Glen Beck, et al, and taking them seriously.

I agree with you on that, not all violence comes from the left; it’s the fringe elements both right and left. I watch fox for the most part on CNN (I can’t stomach MSNBC) I don’t see any type of violence be9ing spewed by any of them; I see both sides backing or not backing the President... During the 9-12 March on DC in September There was not one Arrest. Not the same could be said for the G-20 summit which had a lot of anarchist. Now I will se this again both sides right and left have those fringe elements that make everyone look bad.

Far left and Far right our bad for this country... We went through 8 years of the Far right and now it looks we will go for at least 4 years of the Far left. There may not be an America after we these slap nuts are done.

Unrestricted capitalism is bad, Government run programs are bad, they need to find a happy medium.

Yeah Right BH, anybody that asks the same questions boiling in our heads, and presents the facts, is a yahoo.

Stick your nose back into your liberal rag, watch your networks, and develop a "sane" view based on blatantly bad, agenda driven information. I'll keep watching the only network that seems to wonder the same thing I'm wondering...and continue NOT buying a "news" paper.

I'm quite certain that Bush (and more so Cheney) received an equitable amount of "hate" from the left. Just google Cheney and/or Bush with your favorite hateful words (in fact, on "bing", I type in "cheney bush" and it comes up with "hitler fascist" automatically).

And as far as I'm concerned, the Civil War was the most famous act of political violence.

To me anyway, I see it like this. The PTB will not let any harm come to someone who will work toward their goals. They will make sure that he is protected. They certainly wouldn't have him in a topless convertible driving down a main road with open windows all over the place.

I believe every election was controlled after JFK. These are just my opinions though. I don't want to sidetrack the topic of the thread. I just wanted to point that out first.

Now we have this right wing and left wing thing. They can, through the media, sway a lot of people. To what end? To keep us at each others throats? To make us fear for the safety of our elected official? One member posted that it is to divide and conquer. I believe they already have the conquered part down. What we are being led to do now is pick sides or something. It is baffling!

You said that, not me. I notice you left the "SOME" out of my quote. Nice editing.

Why am I not surprised?
By the way, I don't buy a newspaper either.
Does that make us special? I hope so.
