Right Wing Scrambles to Reassign Blame for Tucson Tragedy - Page 2
And speaking of sacrifice, let's just go ahead and give blogger Andrea J. Rouda and her blog, ROTO-ROUDA, the award for "Bloodiest Self-Inflicted Wound of 2011." (Yeah, I know it's early, but this is gonna be hard to top.)
On January 8, same day as the Tucson shooting, she wondered in print why nobody had taken a shot at former speaker Pelosi yet. Apparently that post didn't get enough hits, so the next day, in a post called "Speaking of Target Practice," she openly calls on folks to "stop" (right wing dog whistle for "blow a hole through") Keith Olbermann. After listing a group of people whose lives were ended early by assassins' bullets, she writes, "What a waste, especially when there are so many good targets out there. Take Keith Olbermann."
Now true, many of the comments following this post are as vile as the death threat she makes against Olbermann. But for his sake, let's hope Keith wears a bullet-proof vest for awhile until this thing blows over (if ever).
(UPDATE: The two offending posts are gone. Apparently Keith found out, had a lawyer contact the young "lady," and she folded faster than Superman on laundry day. She says in her tag line, "I used to do this for money. Now I just do it." I used to hear that from used up women at truck stops ALL the time.)
In the meantime, starting Monday, the right wing hate screamers will scream and the right wing intolerance hooters will hoot and the right wing bigotry bellowers will bellow about how it's not THEIR fault if someone took their words seriously. After all, it's free speech. And words don't kill people.
Right wing hate-fueled morons with extended-clip Glocks do.
