Don’t usually waste any time commenting on the Republican party and Fox News, because there is the nausea involved when I have to think about either more that one Countdown episode – but this time I have to.
Watching Michelle Bachman going on and on about the “evil census bureau” of the United States was ridiculous enough, but I really didn’t think her stupidity would actually stir up enough “low education people” to bring about violence – I was wrong.
With the sad news of Bill Sparkman’s death by murder (yes, when someone is found dangling by a tree, naked, with duct tape pinning his ankles and wrists together, the word FED felt penned into his chest, and his census bureau ID taped to his neck – it’s a MURDER!) I was apparently wrong. The freak-show, hard right-wing of the Republican party members who stoked up fear about the Federal Census Bureau are to blame for this murder. Without their bullshit do your really think this would have happened to Bill Sparkman? – NOT a chance.
There has never been a case reported in United States history like this one regarding the murder of a door-to-door census taker – not until Michelle Bachman, and Fox News started making up wildly paranoid stories of how the census bureau was Barack Obama’s tool for spying on Americans.
This goes way beyond name calling. I don’t believe that the majority of Republicans support Michelle Bachman and Fox News – not for second. I know these hard right wingers of the GOP are the minority – so clear.
I can only hope that Michelle Bachman loses her next election and her seat in Washington. I can only hope that Fox News loses more and more of the television audiences across America.
This goes for Rush and Beck too.
I actually watch Fox News and agree that Beck, Hannity, and Bill-O have their points sometimes, and I don’t dislike them – actually like them all for their humanity, but they need to be CAREFUL what they say, and the anger they endorse.
Sad, sad, sad – tragic, tragic, tragic.
