Fighting words?

January 9th, 2011


Gabriella Giffords shot yesterday…

All the hate speech, hit lists, vitriol… from Palin, the Tea Party, radio “personalities,” … how about some responsibility for these “fighting words” unleashed on susceptible ingoramuses? (ignorami?)  There’s a reason they’re called “fighting words” and there’s a reason “fighting words” are not constitutionally protected free speech


‘Vitriol’ Cited As Possible Factor in Arizona Tragedy

Shooting could tame tough political rhetoric

“Possible” factor?  I haven’t forgotten that Wellstone was #1 on the Bush/Rove “hit list” or that the NRA targeted Minnesota candidates in mailers and labeled them “dead.”
