Right Wing Instigating Murder

There have been a number of massacres in recent weeks, and in the most recent, the perpetrator said that part of his motivation was that he feared "the Obama gun ban that's on the way" and "didn't like our rights being infringed upon," said Edward Perkovic, his best friend.

I believe there is a link between this crime and the growing calls from the increasingly hysterical right wing for "revolution" to "save freedom" -- all because Obama wants to raise tax rates on rich people to rates that are still lower than during the presidency of that notorious Leninist, Ronald Reagan, and less than half what they were during the presidency of that totalitarian monster, Republican president Dwight David Eisenhower.

I think the point here is that hatred and paranoia emanating from Beck/Limbaugh/Savage et al is causing the more unstable elements of the far right to do tragic things. I expect this to continue; Hate-stirrers of the right will just keep speaking in apocalyptic code of "liberals" wanting to "ban the bible" and "take away our freedom", with the expectation that eventually some nutcase will "rid them of this meddlesome priest."
