Skip to comments.How much does right-wing rhetoric contribute to right-wing terrorism?
Posted on 06/09/2014 4:21:41 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
Yesterday, a man and a woman shot two police officers in a Las Vegas restaurant after saying, this is a revolution. Then they draped their bodies in a Gadsden flag. According to reports now coming in, the couple (who later killed themselves) appear to have been white supremacists and told neighbors they had gone to join the protests in support of anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy. It was one more incident of right-wing terrorism that, while not exactly an epidemic, has become enough of a trend to raise some troubling questions.
What Im about to say will raise some hackles, but we need to talk about it. Its long past time for prominent conservatives and Republicans to do some introspection and ask whether theyre contributing to outbreaks of right-wing violence. --snip--
And I promise you, these murders in Nevada will not be the last. It may be going too far to say that conservative politicians and media figures whose rhetoric has fed the deranged fantasies of terrorists and killers have blood on their hands. But they shouldnt have a clear conscience, either.

typical of the Soros Media
Simply two words is all he’s worth...
Bull$h!t. This is just a justification for criminalizing the speech of normal people. (They call normal people “right wingers”)
I bet the MSM are excited about the possibility that they have a confirmed death from someone in the NRA, Tea Party, or just a registered Republican.
White supremacism has nothing in common with conservatism. Not a damn thing.
The projection by these people is amazing.
What does Bundy have to do with right wing?
There weren’t any swastikas carried at his ranch.
These yahoos were NOT right-leaning at all. They were Nazi-wannabees (German Socialist party).
I don’t think you can point to a single “right wing” violence episode in the last... well, forever (mcveigh was a ultra-lefty).
Has anyone ever done a study about who commits more violent crimes, Republicans or Democrats?
They were socialist meth users.
When the government is lawless the citizens have no incentive to respect the law. In fact, following the law while the government flouts it may put the citizens at risk. So, as long as we have a lawless, outright criminal government, we can expect more of this, unfortunately, just as Mullah Baraq planned....
Nazis are socialists.
KKK are Democrats on steroids. The KKK was born as the militant arm of the Democrat party.
Simply facts. Inconvenient facts for this moron “journalist”.
A simple prison census would probably answer that one rather quickly.
Was General Sheridan a right winger?
I think he was quoted “The only good queer is dead queer”
Of course that would be not PC today and he probably would have caught hell for saying it. The thought police would have been all over him
They usually just blame it on right wingers any way. Just like when international terrorists attack America/Americans....they blame America.
If they did it would never get published - and we know why.
