What The Right Has Wrought

I hope the right-wing hatemongers are all very proud of themselves, that they inspired this man to go out and do something about those damn libruls:

Jim David Adkisson wanted to leave no doubt of his motive in opening fire inside a West Knoxville church last year.

“This was a hate crime,” Adkisson wrote in a four-page “manifesto” he had left inside his truck and intended to serve as a suicide letter.

(…)

“Guilty as charged,” Adkisson told Knox County Criminal Court Judge Mary Beth Leibowitz this morning.

“This was a symbolic killing,” Adkisson wrote. “Who I wanted to kill was every Democrat in the Senate and House, the 100 people in Bernard Goldberg’s book. I’d like to kill everyone in the mainstream media. But I knew these people were inaccessible to me.

“I couldn’t get to the generals and high-ranking officers of the Marxist movement so I went after the foot soldiers, the chicken (expletive) liberals that vote in these traitorous people.”

(…)

Adkisson devotes one page of his manifesto to the Unitarian Universalist Church itself. The grandfather-turned-killer once attended TVUUC with his now ex-wife.

“I’d like someone to do an expose on this church,” he wrote. “It’s a den of un-American vipers.'”

A lot of conservatives, including high-profile ones like Ann Coulter, Michael Savage, and pretty much everyone on hate radio, actually talk like this.  It’s not surprising that someone took them literally – it’s surprising that more haven’t.

THIS Is The Proof That I Have No Life???

Saw this on Facebook.  I’ve seen… 151.  I think.  Some of the sequels kind of blur together.  Man, I sure have watched an awful lot of crap.

SUPPOSEDLY if you’ve seen over 85 films, you have no life. Mark the ones you’ve seen. There are 244 films on this list. Copy this list, go to your own facebook account, paste this as a note. Then, put x’s next to the films you’ve seen, add them up, change the header adding your number, and click publish at the bottom. Have fun.

Great Moments In Politics

Porn star Stormy Daniels contemplates running against diaper-and-prostitute-loving right-wing hypocrite Senator David Vitter (R-Huggies). I particularly like when she suggests that her RealDoll could beat Vitter in a debate, and her campaign slogan, “Stormy Daniels: At least I don’t wear a diaper.”

Monday Media Blogging

I think there might be some kind of metaphor here for the GOP, the media, and the American people.

Which would make the liberal blogosphere the language classes…
