How many of these Hollywood types would be talking about "art" if there had been photo shoots of someone holding Obama's severed head? None.

How many would be talking about "theater" and "the arts" if there was a play sponsored by the NY Times et alia that featured an Obama look alike being assassinated? None.

The rhetoric needs to be toned down in this country.

But, part of me is enjoying seeing the left continue to do it because so far it has backfired in their faces. They've lost the election for POTUS in a huge upset and they've lost four "proxy" battles in special elections for congress. And, they still don't get it. And, boy are they sad about it:

How many for Trump.

Your side, dickbob, is the only side calling for killing people who don't agree with their ideology, YOUR SIDE. Some of those violent fucks have guns, dickbob, just like the dude who went to the baseball game and targeted a Republican, in which many of your Left Wing writers, bloggers, and so-called journalists suggested it was okay to shoot that dude...you know, cause of his political flavor. Are YOU okay with that shit?

You want to discuss the ANTIFA? The LEFT wing group using pepper spray, training to fight, and training to use weapons against Conservatives?

Get off your fucking high horse, you aren't any smarter than anyone else, it's obvious that you think you are, just like the rest of the elitist Leftists.

Go back to your books, basement, and hot pockets.

No they fucking aren't the only side! I posted two right-wing assholes earlier in this thread, including one who specifically wants to hire ex-Special Forces people to be conservative attack dogs. I'm not interested in arguing that it's as bad among the right as the left, but it is bad, these people absolutely do exist on the right, so why aren't you condemning them as well?

Ignoring that productions of an Obama stand-in were done of Julius Caesar during his presidency, these idiot protesters should actually watch the show if they think that it supports the action. But, like the average Trump voter, that would the ability to see nuance and not just believe what Rush and Hannity told you to be mad about.

Also, if we're going to take special elections as a proxy, then at this point in 2009, we would have all believed that 2010 was going to be an easy year for Democrats. What's ignored in the Republican circlejerk is that all of these races were for districts that never should have been in play; losing in an R+20 race by 4 points is still a loss, but a swing of 16 points doesn't look so great for the other Republican districts that aren't quite so red.

No they fucking aren't the only side! I posted two right-wing assholes earlier in this thread, including one who specifically wants to hire ex-Special Forces people to be conservative attack dogs. I'm not interested in arguing that it's as bad among the right as the left, but it is bad, these people absolutely do exist on the right, so why aren't you condemning them as well?

Your trying to make points that we are all well aware of, in order to gloss over the point, of what is being said. Instead of addressing the actual point your using the issues of the right to deflect. As the point is if all of these Hollywood types had made the threats they had made toward a liberal president they would be sitting in jail. But as it was towards a republican the threats go ignored, and the threats even bring shouts of joy. If roles were reversed the liberals would be throwing a hissy fit as you are over the few violent republican people out there. And as you throw that hissy fit you are completely deflecting from a continuing growing problem of the left calling for violence. You can sit there all day and go but,but,but it will not change the fact that liberals have become a major problem.

Actually darth stepping outside the box and looking what are liberals doing. They claim peace a unity, but makes special laws for certain groups, separating them out from the herd and making them easily identifiable. Then they have a constant call for disarming all citizens. Now they are calling for violent attacks againsy anyone that did agrees with them. These are all text book moves towards a totalterian government. Which makes their cries of violence way more disturbing than any of the right wings calls for violence.

It's not much of a surprise to me that some marginal (or possibally not so marginal) nut-job actually bought into the poisonous rhetoric that is so pervasive today and thought that the only solution was to start killing elected officials.

Republicans do NOT want the poor to die. They do NOT want to destroy the planet. They do NOT want to enslave minorities.

Likewise, Democrats do NOT want to confiscate all guns. They do NOT want to stamp out religion. They do NOT want to give all the jobs to minorities.

We've tolerated this for far too long. It doesn't matter if it's a post on social media or a statement from an elected official. I'm not talking about silencing free speech. I'm talking about letting those who use poisonous and violent rhetoric know that we find that just as unacceptable as using racial slurs.

A nice platitude, but the issue that significantly more Republicans listen to Rush only than Democrats listen to Rachel Maddow only. Not to say that this is an issue for only the one side, but it's a bigger issue for one side.

That's an old story. Three years old and certainly need to updated to take into account not just Rachel Maddow but MSNBC as a whole as well as CNN's anti-Trump daily stance. Never mind that liberals trust more news sources. LOL, yeah, cause they are all saying the same thing.

It used to be that Rush ruled the radio waves. And, perhaps still does. But, how many people listen to the radio these days compared to getting their information from the cable news channels? or online from places like the NY Times and Washington Post. Again, two publications that are anti-Trump 24-7.

You thought things were bad under Clinton? They got worse under GW Bush. They stabilized under Obama - generally treated with kid gloves and things were ignored. But, this anti-Trump stuff from the media is unparalleled.

That is what you took away from what karter said? No avoidance issue there at all. Also you posted another crap article. There is what mabey three conservative news sources, so of course the majority of the right wing is going to watch fox news. As far as trust goes the liberal news has been caught in how many lies, half truths, ect. So again it is not at all disturbing that consertavies don't trust any of the other news outlets. What was disturbing about what you posted was how the liberals trusted so many news sources. Your study basically showed that once again the left follows the news blindly. So again you provided info that goes against what your trying to say but blindly overlook that portion of info.

Fine then, have a newer study.
Quote:
The CJR study, by scholars at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, at Harvard Law School, and the MIT Center for Civic Media, examined more than 1.25 million articles between April 1, 2015, and Election Day. What they found was that Hillary Clinton supporters shared stories from across a relatively broad political spectrum, including center-right sources such as The Wall Street Journal, mainstream news organizations like the Times and the Post, and partisan liberal sites like The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast.

By contrast, Donald Trump supporters clustered around Breitbart — headed until recently by Stephen Bannon, the hard-right nationalist now ensconced in the White House — and a few like-minded websites such as The Daily Caller, Alex Jones' Infowars, and The Gateway Pundit. Even Fox News was dropped from the favored circle back when it was attacking Trump during the primaries, and only re-entered the fold once it had made its peace with the future president.
(From somebody else's summary of that study)

By contrast, Donald Trump supporters clustered around Breitbart — headed until recently by Stephen Bannon, the hard-right nationalist now ensconced in the White House — and a few like-minded websites such as The Daily Caller, Alex Jones' Infowars, and The Gateway Pundit. Even Fox News was dropped from the favored circle back when it was attacking Trump during the primaries, and only re-entered the fold once it had made its peace with the future president.
(From somebody else's summary of that study)

So your new study show what? People on the right moved away from traditional news sources, and the left stuck with the exact same thing. Hmm and you wonder where the phrase liberal echo chamber comes from.

Even the WSJ doesn't like Trump. They can't control him like they can traditional presidents.

Why do you think Fox News is so popular?

If you read the article, or even the summary I posted, you'd know it's because they have come around to liking Trump. When Fox News didn't like Trump, they were not popular on the right. I suppose that's the basis of your echo chamber, then? Don't listen to anybody, even usually reliable conservative sources, who has unkind things to say about Trump?

No. You missed my point. Fox News is (and has been) popular because it isn't the left wing echo chamber.

Dude, I have a CNN news app on my phone. Literally every single day, I get alerted to some anti-Trump news piece. Some of it has proved to be fake. Don't even get me started on MSNBC. Although, that show with Rachel Maddow claiming to have Trump's tax returns click to show was delightful. And, I'm sure it made Geraldo Rivera extra happy as now she owns the Al Capone's vault "record".

Just today I got an alert where they talked about the differences in state medicaid between TX and AR and the sad situation of some patient who is suffering because of it. Yes, its sad. But, when does CNN do stories on people whose premiums under Obama were so high they literally couldn't afford to go to the doctor? Sure, they now had insurance. But, couldn't afford to use it. You'd think they'd dedicate just as many resources to that, wouldn't you? Of course they wouldn't. Because they have an agenda.

Another example, the hard hitting analytical piece of a dictator who gets more ice cream than his guests...

Maybe those are reasons why people feel the way they do about "news".

Er, you can say what you want about CNN, but they don't believe that Sandy Hook was a false flag. Or that a DNC staffer was assassinated by a HRC-sponsored hitman. Or that the main takeaway from the largest protest in American history was "Madonna said some mean things." Aka, "things that Infowars, Fox News, and Breitbart" push.

Like, ffs: number of Pulitzers won by "the leftwing echo chamber" vs. number of Pulitzers won by the shitty WordPress blogs that make up the RWNJ echo chamber should be a quick check before you make your typical bullshit false equivalence.

Not really, since that'll just prove that the Pulitzers are also part of the left-wing echo chamber, which is apparently also large enough to include the Wall Street Journal.
