Default Re: Atonement (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

If people were saying that someone advocating political violence is a new phenomenon that would indeed be trivial. Someone advocating political violence isn't something new but the fact that they have a daily t.v. show on a major network is new.

Quoting Harkin: Where were these accusers when people were marching with posters showing Dubya decapitated, shot, lynched and burned?
Where were these people when Bill Maher said killing Dick Cheney would save lives?
Where were these people when Randy Rhodes was calling for 'Fredo Corleone' Bush to be taken for a boat ride?
Where were these people when british newspapers were begging for another Lee Harvey Oswald?

I think it's obvious that the marchers don't have a daily t.v. show.
Bill Maher is actually on t.v. But you're saying that Bill Maher is in the same category in terms of intensity as Beck. That's hopeless. Randy Rhodes? I didn't even know who he was until I looked him up online. British newspapers? That has be to be the most desperate ploy of them all. You have to go all the way to Britain for a comparison? The only thing you're right about is that people are hypocrites. Are you're suggesting that's a new phenomena?
