I was on the air in San Francisco guest hosting a show the day of the Arizona massacre in January that left several dead and critically injuring Congresswoman Giffords and many others.
Call after call railed against Sarah Palin for her "crosshairs" campaign that they felt so sure was the inspiration behind the lunatic's shooting spree.
Wonder where all those people are NOW??
You see, an idiotic comedian (ALLEGED comedian...to my knowledge, comedians by definition are SUPPOSED to elicit laughter from their audience) has made a "joke" out of insinuating that he would potentially ASSASSINATE Sarah Palin if she was elected President.
Christopher Titus, who couldn't be funny if he was threatened with water boarding, made the unfunny and DANGEROUS remarks on another over rated comedian's show.
I will share the quote and let YOU decide if this is the civil political discourse the Left keeps demanding of the Right.
"I am going to literally -- if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready -- because you know what? It's for my country. It's for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it's for my country."
Wow. What ingenious humor!! A modern day Bob Hope and Red Skelton put together!! Bob Newhart has NOTHING on this guy! What talent!
The truth is if I said this on my radio show, I'd probably get a call from the Secret Service, if not get my door kicked in at 2 in the morning.
Note his own words. He says LITERALLY. That isn't figuratively, which still wouldn't make the "joke" ok. He says LITERALLY. That means EXACTLY WHAT HE WOULD DO.
Again, all I hear is the sound of CRICKETS from those who at the beginning of the year were blaming Sarah Palin for the bloodshed in Arizona.
The same crickets that were heard when democrat after democrat called for literal violence on political opponents. Even going as far as saying a GOP candidate for governor should be put up against a wall and SHOT.
Also the same crickets that had NOTHING to say when President Obama called political opponents ENEMIES and on a different occasion said the democrats should bring guns to the political battle if the republicans bring knives.
The very same crickets who chirped when BOZO Cindy Sheehan said she fantasizes about going back in time and killing George W. Bush as a BABY so we could avoid all the horrors that Bush reaped on America.
So much for that civil political discourse, huh?
