Talk show host Phil Valentine encourages shooting undocumented immigrants
http://guerillawomentn.blogspot.com /

"Conservative radio hate-talk show host, Phil Valentine has his own rightwing ideas about immigration reform. The SuperTalk 99.7WTN radio host suggested to a "boisterous" crowd of nearly 1,000 in Franklin, Tennessee that one way to solve the immigration problem is to pick up a gun and "shoot" undocumented immigrants.

Will Phil Valentine step up and take responsibility if one of his loyal angry white male fans picks up a gun and tries to make Phil proud?

It's not like conservative radio hosts attract unstable types or anything, but have you ever wondered what kind of radio serial killers listen to?

When Valentine yelled, 'Shoot him', the crowd actually cheered..."

1. Hmm, isn't incitement to commit murder a crime?
And surely there are some other conspiracy offenses he's committing too.

Where are are these 'tough on crime' Repubs when you need them?

10. You don't have a first amendment right to say that.
You're right. This is an outrage. Not only does he not have a right to incite murder, but he doesn't have a right to take the law into his own hands.

What is wrong with the people here? I think it's petroleum addiction. It has pervaded the pshyche of this society. Everyone feels powerful.

2. Meanwhile, back in December he was crying
because the "War on Christmas" was destroying that most sacred holiday for him.

Guess his Jesus - that guy he claims to follow - told him it was okay to murder all of a sudden? Guess he never heard "Feliz Navidad?"

What happened to the bible passages about treating the stranger and the alien with kindness? Not in their Bobble? Not from their Gawd?

How hilarious this would be if it were not so damned sad.

4. Exactly how does the average gun-toting citizen determine who is
illegal or not? What a nut job this guy is.

5. Racism and Lynching: Old Southern Conservative Traditions Continue
Racism and lynching. I see that old Southern conservative traditions continue. The radical right returns to such traditions like dogs to vomit.

Whenever progressives object to such code-word racism, right-wingers claim that they're against illegal immigration, not that they're racists. But can you imagine the dear boy encouraging his listeners to go up to Chicago or New York and do drive-by shootings of undocumented eastern Europeans? :sarcasm:

6. can you imagine if a Democrat said "shoot them"?
Can you imagine the outrage?
Yet the thud we hear is not the dead body falling, but the sound of silence in the MSM. Again.
shame on that asshole and shame on the MSM.

9. The things these people find the time to think about.
Edited on Sat May-06-06 10:03 AM by Gregorian
What about Darfur?


But just in case, let's check if Schwarzzeneger had his papers.


By the way, I'm getting to the point where I don't want to admit I come from the same country as these clowns. And I should also add that illegal immigrants are some of the few people in this country that I can actually tolerate. Humble, kind, friendly, and they do the dirty work. I haven't met an illegal immigrant who wasnt' smiling, yet. God love them.

11. He's the ass that started the 'honking' campaign at the state capitol
against a state income tax.

He needs to be reported to the FCC.

13. Regular white supremacist organizing throughout Tennessee:
Christian Identity, Council of Conservative Citizens, Klan, League of the South.

Nashville area typically has several events each year.

Phil Valentine is playing to a demographic he has carefully identified ...
