Coiler

Probably, the suspect, whom the AP has named as Scott Roeder was also uncovered by Democratic Underground with a archived post on Operation Rescue website showing a Scott Roeder asking if people could infiltrate Tiller's church.

Bleass everyone for attending and praying in May to bring justice to Tiller and the closing of his death camp.
Sometime soon, would it be feasible to organize as many people as possible to attend Tillers church (inside, not just outside) to have much more of a presence and possibly ask questions of the Pastor, Deacons, Elders and members while there? Doesn’t seem like it would hurt anything but bring more attention to Tiller.

sparky

I am going to be up to my eyeballs with grading projects and doing report cards so I will weigh in now while I can.

I can't stand Rush or Bill or Sean or Glenn or the Weiner. I think they make a lot of money to say stuff that I don't even know if they truly believe, or figure it gets listeners to tune in.

That said, Rush's deliberate efforts to get Hillary elected failed miserably. I think that someone who could do this, would have done so without any encouragement from any of the bozos I named above.

As Coiler said, Democratic Underground found posts made to the Operation Rescue blog by the suspect, and they don't appear to be overly inflammatory.

This is the act of an insane person. I would love to blame it on the assholery of the rightie talkers. Words do have consequences. But I think this guy would have done this regardless of whether there was a Rush Limabaugh or not.

sparky

Or a Bill Orally.

joanie

Sorry but my last post belongs here so I'm posting it again. :)

Extremists flock to propaganda and listen to BS from these BSrs. I don't listen to them. Neither do most Americans.

Thank god.

But these people can generate extreme behavior in the extremists that listen. So, they are dangerous. Another example? Timothy McVeigh.

Extremism = violence.


This is hate speech and leads to violence. And this is why some countries try to keep these extreme hate-talkers out?

chucks

To put the blame on O'Reilly for this asshats criminal act is about as valid as putting the blame for ELF, the unibomber or the clowns that burned the UDUB research center on Olbermann, Maddow or Rhodes. Yes, they are all idiots, morons and flame throwers, but not responsible for all of the left wing crime in this nation.
As long as the left wing extreme is in control of The House, The Senate and the POTUS, a few of you will die violently. A few of us die when we run the show.
The mentaly unstable and the criminaly insane are not going to lay down and take it in the ass, no matter who is in charge.
You can't blame it on the nationwide gagle of blatherers.
In our country, we can not keep the hate-talkers out. What you, I and a million others see as free speach, others see as hate-talk.
Who gets to decide.
I don't trust Obama to make the right choice. Would most of you trusted Bush to make the right choice?
In truth, I could have killed the Doctor myself if it were legal. By first and formost, I believe in the rule of law. It is against the law, so I would just not do it.

joanie

...a few of you will die violently.

I rest my case.

what a ph(J)oanie. you didn't seem to have a problem when Randi speaks about assasination of a sitting President.


how many times have you posted here that 'randi is on fire tonight' or some such claptrap descriptive word with mike malloy.

you're all about the 'hot talk' when its something that you like...eh,

Here you go. A blast from the past when you thought violance was damn funny.

You could be correct, Coiler, but it won't hurt Fox News or talk radio...

chucks

It certainly warranted being re-posted Coiler. Thank you. I am sure that at least some of you can pick out the meaning of the post. I in no way expected anything less out of Joanie. I knew that she would have a moronic gutter level statement. She did not dissapoint.

joanie

And the idiots continue . . .
Drew, trying to have a reasonable conversation with these cretins is like talking to swinging doors.

I've given up although you can tell poor spotsie's still swinging back and forth...back and forth...back and forth . . . still trying to get my attention.

Funny, isn't it?

And, Coiler, you're right, of course. If he didn't mean it, he shouldn't have said it. I'm sure, however, he googled all night trying to find an extremist on the left who killed someone on the right due to extreme conservativism (whatever that is). I think perhaps it is time we did it. :) Bankrupting the country and killing thousands of American kids and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis in an illegal war seems like reason enough to me.

Keep googling, chucks. There must be at least one out there... :)


I think it bears reposting a third time:

... a few of you will die violently. A few of us die when we run the show.

Notice, chucks, you said "a few of us" so I'm hoping for more than one but I'll take just one.


Also, coiler, can't you see spotsie stalking us - or is it just me? He must have a file on each of us in which he saves all our posts. He's kind of scary, don't you think? A typical right-wing crazy kind of guy? Obsessed with us? Who else posts 5000 words of nonsense daily?

Oh, and Coiler, thanks for catching his little lie by omission. We really don't know if anything he posts is truthful. But, who really cares?

Drew

Joanie-
Try not to let it distract you from the grading of papers, etc., as you close out the year. I'm not sure what's more disturbing: the fact the right's loudest talkers will continue their promotion of violence unabated, or not knowing where the next shot from one of their followers is coming from.

Two days after the election of Obama, a local gun store owner was interviewed on the radio, commenting on how their sales had been going through the roof since Obama's nomination to the party, and he expected them to increase even more with his election. His comments turned to politcal propaganda as he explained how the President was planning to confiscate all guns- part of an evil conspiracy along with Pelosi and Reid. Made some of us wonder if we needed to buy some weapons ourselves, to protect ourselves from the right-wing nutbags who actually believe that crap.

joanie

Drew, I think truthfully there is a good chance that he will be shot. I don't say that lightly. I was thinking about it today while listening to Nunberg talk about the danger of the language on the right and I thought of the movie "Taxi Driver" with DeNiro.

Silly to think of movies but they do reflect life sometimes. It will only take one crazy guy and the propaganda and hate messages the right haters are repeating over and over and over will one day find a home in a deranged mind.

Sparky is right. It will take an unstable or insane person. But they are out there. And the profiteering hatemongers on the right are doing their best to find them. That is the crime here.


Drew

Very true, Joanie.
OK, it's back to Ice Road Truckers!

not trying to catch your attention as much as illustrating your ph(J)oanie-ness.

Puget Sound

unlike ph(J)oanie, I don't think it is funny to joke about any President being shot. for ph(J)oanie, it is an issue of being a Dem or a Rep that drives her laughter and concern. that is sick.


Puget Sound

C'mon, you like to take apart Chuck's post why can't we take apart your posts?

Maybe you can explain what made that trucker seem so 'reasonable' and the comment about shooting the president so damn 'funny.'

Pot meet Kettle.


TJ

as much as I deplore Bill O'Reilly (once saw a guy wearing an O'Reilly Factor jacket, just couldn't believe it...), there's no way he can be blamed for this.

Beat him up over his obssessive, dishonest reporting about Tiller (like that is the only issue upon-which he's dishonest), and other reasons, but don't call him an accomplice, please...

There are people who say that the Bible says being a White Supremacist is cool. I'm no fan of the bible by any means, but obviously to any reasoned-thinking person, they're nuts to do so.

In short, this deranged nutbag who killed Tiller didn't need O'Reilly to stoke his embers - the lunatic crowd that does this kind of thing was already inspired long before O'Reilly came 'round.

Personally, I think it's of more value to keep an eye on Hannity, Limbaugh and the other extremist cons who stoke the flames of fear of the Obama gov't, literally inspiring people to consider revolution and succession - those are the real threats to the country as an whole (not necessarily the folks on TV, but they ones they enrage).

chucks

Oh great. Some left wing lunetic just shot and wounded two Army officers in front of a recruiting center in Arkansas.
Those freaking hate mongers at Air America Radio should be imprisoned.

HoChiMinh

So, let's see now do we blame the popular TV entertainment show 'Hogan's Hero's' for the Viet Name War. After all it was one of the most popular entertainment shows of that era.
I'm with Sparky on this one, even tho I dislike most (if not all) of these 'talkers', responsibility lies with the perpetrater, period.

Mark C.

Duffman. Vietnam is over. We lost. Be more useful if you would climb into this century, and discuss the real problems concerning the latest American overreach, the neoconservative quagmire of Iraq. We will be paying for it in various ways for at least as long as we have the crime of Vietnam.

snap

Can't wait to hear O'Reilly lecture us tonight about how wrong it is to take the law into your own hands and the crime of violent murder as a political tactic. He will have tried to wash his hands of bloodstains before the broadcast starts.

Queens Hunter

It is reported that one of the Army recruiters is dead and the other suffers an upper body wound and is in serious condition.

Will the CINC issue a statement of the heinous crime committed against two of his soldiers?

Will Holder order protection for military recruiters as he has some prochoice "facilites"?

Unlikely.

HoChiMinh

If you addressed me by my proper moniker instead of labeling me as another, perhaps I'd answer.

Coiler

suspect had ties to militia groups

Roeder just gave Napolitano due cause to crack down on right wing anti govt groups. These guys should of been policing their own.


M.Steele

Anyone find it interesting that the mentally deranged folks are attracted to the right?

HoChiMinh

Yeah, Bernie Ward was certainly attracted to the right. Idiot statement.

A6

bernie ward never walked into a church with the intention of murdering anyone.

Queens Hunter

After seeing the picture of the perp that shot the two soldiers there is little doubt that he is a rabid, left wing, obama supporter.

A6

Based on what, exactly?

HoChiMinh

How 'bout that great right-winger of Germany, think he intentionally killed anyone. Fool!

A6

"Right-wing terrorism: did bill o'reilly inspire a killer?"

HoChiMinh, you're getting off topic, so I send you this little reminder.

HoChiMinh

Has O'Reilly ever professed to be right wing? If so, show me a link where he says that. Read my lips HE'S AN ENTERTAINER!!

M.Steele

I believe the same as Sparky, you can’t blame others for the people that have gone round the bend.
But I find it strange that these mentally deranged folks are attracted to the hate talk. And they are more than willing to do the bidding of the extreme right. The right recognizes and sometimes glorifies these folks until the line is crossed. Then the folks that agitated these actions disown the person as a mental case and cry foul when the connection is made. Never once admitting their agitation of these folks.

A6

M.Steele, that's exactly how this one is going down. O'Rielly will do a lightweight admonishment of what ammounts to a terrorist act, and will totally avoid discussing his 28 attacks on Dr. Tiller on previous episodes of his show. A lot like how Hannity totally avoids his promise to be waterboarded.

M.Steele

Correct, he is an entertainer. Not the type to outwardly call for violent behavior. He’s the type that will obliquely refer to it. And to the mentally deranged, this may be a call to arms.(Or maybe not, I’m not a Phyc). I still find it strange these people find comfort in the corner of the right.

HoChiMinh

You can find it strange and find coincidental connections with lots of stuff but you can't let a TV or talk show be directly responsible for the actions of a mad person. These (talk shows, et al) are a part of our society and as such are part of people's environment. How that environment affects the actions of a deranged human being has nothing to do with political slant. Now STFU and try to do something to make yourself useful instead of whiiiiiining on and on about this.
You're simply showing what a dolt you are.

Coiler

Does Duffman's group home still have Internet? We must contact them to pull the plug. He is crazier than a shithouse rat.

M.Steele

OHHHH someone's comming un gluuued... To much O'goofy? Nooo... it must be the truth touching your poor dryed heart.

Drew

Good thing the rest of America still believes in Free Speech- the same freedom that allows O'Reilly to spew forth his hatred, along with Michael Weiner, and Rush Limbaugh, that same freedom allows us to criticize right-wing nut bags like Bill-O

M.Steele

Boohoo min;
With this type of conversation it’s no wonder you find O’foolish entertaining.

M.Steele

He is crazier than a shithouse rat.
