The nazipooh and pigmedia worked assiduously to hide the rage the rightwing dupes were being affected with in Clinton days - it was hard to watch the msmedia pretend how 'reaction' was atypical (and mainly workers/poor)...oddly enough it was Tims sharing a cell with unibomber Ted kasynsky[?] what revealed to him how the fascists were in control of so much media....special mention was Alan Berg Denver super popular talk radio host murdered by guy in same movement as Mcveig! Mcveigh went to death totally eyes opened!

And all we democrats get from the media is....both party's are the same!

Trump's hate rallies, Fox 'news' and hate radio wind up these tools of billionaires and set them loose of the public and absolutely nothing is done about it!

The MAGAbomber was living out of a damn van FFS and wanted to take out every prominent democrat in this country for billionaires like the Koch bros, Adelson and Murdoch!

That's how their right wing networks pay off for those bastards!

But support for the death penalty is not a liberal position in my opinion.

It makes us a little bit more like them.

Of course, many liberals disagree with me. And that’s ok.

Sat Oct 27, 2018, 10:34 AM

I've been begging and begging Republicans to do something ever since Trump declared his candidacy. You could see the Nazis all over social media and comments sections. They take no action and say nothing. The attacks will continue until conservatives show some courage and reject anti-Semitic and racist activities in their midst. Had they been more vigilant and more vocal, they could have spared at least some lives. Far right organization and platforms need to be shut down, their activities disrupted. And RWers need to work with anti-extremist watchdog groups instead of demonizing them. They have instead encouraged this activity.

The administration will continue to treat the violence as a series of unrelated incidents.

Michael Moore: Fox News Helped Create Generation Of ‘Violent Conspiracy Theorists’
“Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News Channel and right-wing radio have preyed upon those who’ve seen their American Dream go up in smoke.”

By Lee Moran


Michael Moore said Fox News is partly to blame for helping to create a generation of violent conspiracy theorists in America.

The filmmaker’s criticism of the conservative network came after an image of his face in crosshairs was found stickered on the van of suspect Cesar Sayoc, who is accused of mailing pipe bombs this week to leading Democrats, critics of President Donald Trump and CNN.

“Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News Channel and right-wing radio have preyed upon those who’ve seen their American Dream go up in smoke,” Moore said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “And they have helped to create a generation of angry and violent conspiracy theorists who will believe any lie that is perpetrated on those airwaves.”

Rarely is cause-and-effect so obvious, but I do not doubt the ability of the average StormTrumper to delve even deeper into denial.
