More Violent Hate Speech from Air America. (Must be Wednesday.)

Sure it's a DRUDGE REPORT FLASH, but that doesn't mean it's automatically untrue, despite the constant cries of pain from the liberals.




The red-hot rhetoric over Social Security on liberal talkradio network AIR AMERICA has caught the attention of the Secret Service, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

Government officials are reviewing a skit which aired on the network Monday evening -- a skit featuring an apparent gunshot warning to the president!

The announcer: "A spoiled child is telling us our Social Security isn't safe anymore, so he is going to fix it for us. Well, here's your answer, you ungrateful whelp: [audio sound of 4 gunshots being fired.] Just try it, you little bastard. [audio of gun being cocked]."

The audio production at the center of the controversy aired during opening minutes of The Randi Rhodes Show.

"What is with all the killing?" Rhodes said, laughing, after the clip aired.

"Even joking about shooting the president is a crime, let alone doing it on national radio... we are taking this very seriously," a government source explained.


I spotted the above after catching Bryon York's item at The Corner:

The skit this week by Air America host Randi Rhodes featuring simulated gunshots fired at President Bush is at least the second time Rhodes has used her program to discuss the idea of killing the president.

On her May 10, 2004, Air America program, Rhodes compared Bush to Fredo Corleone, the weak son in the Godfather movies, who was, on his brother Michael's orders, taken on a fishing trip during which he was murdered with a gunshot to the head. "They are the Corleones," Rhodes said of the Bush family. "The Fredo of the family is the president of the United States, so why doesn't his father take him, or his brother, one of them, take him out for a little, uh, fishing? You know, let him say some Hail Marys, he loves God so much. Yeah, take him out, you know, 'Hail Mary, full of grace, God is with thee' -- POW!" Rhodes paused briefly before adding, "Works for me."

Will someone please remind me when it was that Rush Limbaugh ran a sketch calling for the assassination of Bill Clinton? Oh yeah, that's right....IT NEVER HAPPENED!!!!

Seething, unreasoning and violent rage is the sole animating emotion of the Left and from their screaming maniac DNC chair, Howard Dean, to the punks throwing pies and salad dressing, they feel that there is no restraint neccessary on their actions and if some unhinged nutjob hauls off and actually injures or kills a non-liberal, it's justifiable because liberals are GOOD and non-liberal-socialist-fascists are BAD, dontchaknow?

Liberalism is an ideology of hate, fear, tyranny and violence. Never forget it because they'll never admit it.

UPDATE: Tim Graham of the Media Research Council adds in a later Corner post, "the funniest part of that article was Janeane Garofalo insisting they would not be as nasty as right-wingers. "On the left traditionally, you've got a nicer type of person. You've got a person who is more willing to engage in conversations that have context and nuance."

Fantasizing about shooting the President in the head is "nicer" and has "nuance"?!? Jeez! And to think there was a time when I thought she was kinda cute and smart. Too bad the hate of liberalism claimed her soul, not that she cares. She's good with her peeps and that's what matters, right?

UPDATE: The days after this story blew up, Randi DID apologize, albeit with fingers crosssed and a demand that every Republican also apologize for ever saying anything in opposition to Democratic smears and fascism, so by being insincere, it doesn't count. She's still a hateful liar, but we knew that already.

I distinctly remember G. Gordon Liddy advocating shooting federal agents, as well as claiming to use cardboard cut-outs of both Clintons as targets. Other than that, great point.

Re: Liddy comments - IIRC, the part about shooting Feds was made in the context of the post-Waco ATF vs. Branch Davidians times when the Clinton regime had made it quite clear that burning children to death was SOP when there were some guns to grab. Liddy was saying that if Federal Stormtroopers barge into your domocile, be sure to "shoot them in the head."

The Left has consciously stripped the context out of Liddy's comments to provide cover for Rhode's hate speech by fabricating a supposedly equivalent comment - typical, but still wrong.

Rhodes has apologized, but it was so insincere and couched in the demands that every non-liberal who's ever said anything should now apologize too that it's meaningless. Childish, hateful person, that Rhodes is.

As for the Clinton targets bit - I never heard that, but it sounds like his style and it's stupid and childish, too. As criminal as the Clintons were, Hell awaits them in their own sweet time, so Liddy should save the ammo and watch his mouth.
