  • Violent political language

    The left was certainly in a huff after the shooting of Congresswoman Gifford for "violent political language" by those on the right.

    This week Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa tells us we need to "take out" the Tea Party.

    And now a video game to kill zombie versions of Bill O'Reilly and Sarah Palin:

    I kind of wonder if this is or will be the new normal. Or society has changed to be what may be considered less polite and more aggressive when it comes to social interactions. I think it would only follow that politics, which has never been "civil" should eventually follow the rest of society.

      Violent political speech isn't new:

      For me, the interesting thing isn't the speakers but the listeners. Why is someone swayed by such speech? When I hear this kind of thing from people "representing" my candidate (about the most peaceful man one could imagine) I am sickened.
