The Washington Post has produced some examples of heated political rhetoric in the US. Even Obama has used it in the past. In fact during the election campaign he said,
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun … Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
Then there’s Palin’s infamous line,
“Don’t retreat, Instead – RELOAD!”
Have a look at some of the comments. They’re enough to make your hair stand on end! One comment is repeated 5 times. Presumably the commenter thought once wasn’t enough.
The people who are trying to take away basic American liberty such as the right to own firearms, the right to free speech instead of politically correct speech (defined by libs), and the right to decide what health coverage you buy or don’t buy should expect to draw fiery comments from the people they are trying to dupe. Anyone who speaks out against them is using “hate speech” according to them. It is regrettable when a nut chooses to shoot a group of people (and this nut has liberal ways, atheist is one). The liberals have sowed the seed of hate by trying to enslave Americans to their theoretical utopia on earth, where they rule of course. You don’t have to be too concerned about insurrection when a nut grabs a gun and acts stupid, but when Americans finally get completely sick of the lefties and grab their guns, then worry.

Repetition is a sure sign of a serious mental disorder. “johntu” seems to have missed the news. Loughner is connected to an extreme right wing group that calls itself American Renaissance (I won’t provide a link but you can Google them). Their idea isn’t so much of a renaissance as a return to the stone age.
