Getting back to what Tantaros said about punching Obama voters

I have a question to ask the DU community: isn't it weird how in this country, swear words and sex jokes are censored, yet it is considered "free speech" and totally acceptable for a prominent radio show host to suggest violence against a group of people? As far as I know, this lady still has yet to be fired or reprimanded for her remarks.
Maybe I'm the crazy one here, but something seems very wrong with this picture IMO.

1. Do you really think she was literally calling for violence.

Saying someone should be punched in the mouth may be stupid but your extreme concern seems unjustified.

3. Oh for fuck's sake.

How is saying "when you see an Obama voter punch him in the mouth" NOT calling for violence? Your statement is one of the dumbest I have ever seen on the internet.

2. I agree

1st amendment is one thing but to create a toxic environment is another. The RWers have been spewing violence against anyone who does not think or behave like them and its plain wrong.

4. Can you imagine if a liberal radio host had said that about Romney voters?

The mass freak-out would last for days on end. Fox would run with it day and night. There would be calls for the head of the lefty who dared uttered those words.

5. ^This^

Can anyone say "Palin Cross-hairs?"

What was the phrase, "Don't reply, reload" or some such garbage- my memory betrays me, sorry.

The meme "class warfare" is an apt one, in this instance.
