Boy, how they fuss and fume, these right wingers. They spew hate-filled invective for two or three years or more, and when someone calls them on it, after the shootings in Arizona which might or might not have been related, they have a righteous fit. I made just a few harmless observations the other day about the right wing’s anti-liberal, anti-Democrat hate campaign, being careful not to say it caused the Arizona shooting, because how ...

After reading this my first reaction was that Carl Strock is as angry as the "angry ones" he writes so lovingly about! And NEITHER is terribly pretty...

I don't see anger. I see detatched bemusemnt at the idiocy of the radical right. But hey, we all see what we choose to see, isn't that the point?

You are barking up the wrong tree on this one. The focus should be on mental illness and cuts to mental health budgets. http://www.democracynow.org/2011/1/11/ja...

Even Charles Krauthammer got it right on today's op-ed page as did the editorial by the Gazette.

When Sean Hannity show starts out, "Our purpose is to make Barack Obama a one tern president," that's it for objectivity. They don't care. There is no such thing is good discourse in this country anymore. Like him or not, Obama is the president, just like Bush was. To have a show with such a blantant theme as Hannity's.....what can you say?

I agree with the sentiment about Sean Hannity. I have Fox on my TV often during the day, but, RARELY will I watch ANY news show when the mouthpieces come on at 8. Actually, I don't watch any of the mouthpieces on any of the networks. I'm afraid that many of these people - on all networks - have intelligent thoughts, but, their delivery method turns me away from watching or listening to them. I'll read a variety of them to try to get information, thoughts on issues.

Thank you Mr. Strock. Let's all stay on the high road by revealing the facts and exposing the lies.

Keep up the good work.

It will never be possible to stop every unhinged person from committing awful crimes. But in the wake of the Tucson tragedy, we should be talking about how to provide more mental-health care to those who display signs of needing it, not having a debate about whether rhetoric on TV and Twitter killed those six people.

News flash: we can discuss how to provide more mental health care coverage AND examine how the ugly rhetoric in this country may provoke some to act violently. One does not preclude the other -- we need to address both.
