    "When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous," the sheriff said. "And unfortunately, Arizona I think has become the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry."

    You blame Olbermann and Matthews for the killing of the federal Judge and the 9 year old kid? Get a grip.

    Normally GT, I think you are pretty much on the money.

    This is not one of those times, brother.

    If you can't recognize rhetoric when it's like minded rhetoric, that doesn't make it not rhetoric. Does that make sense homey?

    I don't blame the rhetoric for the crazy person who commited murder, no. But I do think that it adds unnecessary instigation onto an already unstable individual, and adding in that it's just for money.........it doesn't wash with my conscience.

    I respect if you disagree, also.

    Funny, Ive listened to all of them. Even Olbermann and Matthews, Ive seen no evidence of any type of rhetoric that would cause assassination attempts.

    Why are you so convinced that one of these media figures is to blame?

    I said quite clearly in a post before yours that I don't blame them, thus rendering your question irrelevant, and that's not being said to be a dick but just to clarify your error.

    Also, I'll make it quite clear and pronounced, I'd never vote to silence these people. I simply find them reprehensible. That alright?

    How does it work in societies where people can't speak their mind?

    Irrelevant, and also ironic to your apparent dislike of my OP.

    What does the government imposed lack of "vitriol" result in?
