14. Welcome to DU, StuckInTexas.

I only snickered. Not in too much of a laughing mood after that Thousand Oaks shooting. GOD, my kid's band could have played there. They gigged all over that area, and a lot of their friends were in school out there.

12. Well, No

I dislike Cucker Tarlson as much as anyone else here, but it's not a good idea for a bunch of strangers to just show up at someone's house like that, no matter what kind of puddle of vomit you may consider that person to be.

When I first heard about this, it reminded me of a part of history that is particularly shameful (or whatever word conveys that meaning, but about ten million times stronger).

I know that he is a hateful buzzard who incites hate, but we must counter his horrible message with words, not the threat of a mob. Don't feed the reichwing hate machine.

And I advocated your non-hate message both in person and online. Loudy, proudly, and for 50 years.

I abhor violence.

I still abhor violence.

But I didn't get to choose what has happened to my country. I certainly wish that there remains a peaceful path would stop what is happening to my country, and in my country, by some of my countrymen. But I am convinced no easy path remains.

I wish it were not so.

The right wing discarded anything like good behavior guidelines decades ago. They count on us to handicap ourselves by playing nice. If we have to get down to their level to save what's left of our democracy, so be it.

29. Well, don't scream and holler when someone breaks a window and gets shot.

Because odds are thats where this is headed if we say it's all fine and dandy since the initial target is an asshole.
What happens when a mob shows up at Lawrence O'Donnells home? Rachel Maddow?
Unhinged people are everywhere and some of them are looking for a reason to be famous.
This shit has GOT TO STOP.

ETA: I would've thought for sure that LIMBAUGH would be more likely. Or Alex jones.

38. What then are those odds, and on what objective measure are they based?

"Because odds are thats (sic) where this is headed..."

Or was yours simply more hyperbole to better bookend the fictional broken windows where people get shot?

Lacking objective numbers, your allegations seem "pretty unhinged..." as well.

We're having a reasonable discussion here about a serious subject. This isnt 8th grade.

41. It's already there friend

I watched a crazed American Nazi speed his car into dozens of peaceful Democratic protesters, who were marching against Republican racism they call white nationslism.

I watched as my Liberal brothers and sisters were mown down and killed mercilessly by Republican evil.

I watched a Republican President fail to call out those in his party responsible. I watched him blame the victims. I watched as things in America have since worsened.

I did not choose what has happened to my country. But I have chosen my side. And I will not shy from saying that we are in a battle for America. That the evil we face is monstrous, growing, and capable of anything. And I do mean anything.

And again I wish more than anything that it were not so.

43. Well, I guess it'll only get worse then.

Like I said, there are unhinged people throughout the country. And as it gets more heated, they'll be shooting up bigger ballfields or driving through bigger crowds.
I will not encourage it, but I am prepared if they come for ME. And I certainly don't blame you for being prepared for YOUR safety.

ETA- what a shame we've gotten to this point, right?

even with family and friends that I love. I don't sit back and keep my mouth shut about these assholes anymore. Last night I told my 70 year old sister that if she doesn't like what I say about her pig in the White House she better unfriend me, cause I'm gonna be saying a lot worse that I have.

25. The reichwing hate machine doesn't need any feeding. We feed them by existing.

Carlson works for a network whose top on air talent fomented the murder of Dr. Tiller.

One of his current on-air colleagues made his bones showing up at peopleís homes.

These people have literally incited murders and mass shootings (as evidenced by manifestos and literature in the homes/cars of mass shooters).

Maybe itís time one of our pitchers brushes THEM back.

45. Everyone - Don't Get Me Wrong

Please feel free to say whatever shitty thing you feel like to and about Carlson, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, Pirro, on and on ad nauseum. If you tell them while they are in a public place, all the better. If they are going to fuck with our health, livelihood, wellbeing, and our very lives, they can put up with an uncomfortable dinner or hurry to cross the street once in a while.

It's the part about the protest outside his residence that I object to.

37. Get educated about the source of that quote that is being used as a joke.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_they_came_...


First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak outó
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak outó
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak outó
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for meóand there was no one left to speak for me.
