The right wing is so angry about its political misfortunes as of recent. They are now promoting insurrection and open violence against their fellow americans.

Recently Sean Hannity took a poll regarding what type of revolution his viewers and listeners thought was 'coming to America'. Say what?

Are these people crazy? Check out some statements made by other right wing extremists promoting hatred of their neighbors:

1. Liberal groups are often called "Nazi" or "Nazi-like" by O'Reilly. Why? Because they have an opposing opinion?

2. Savage says he'd "hang every lawyer" who tried to establish constitutional rights for Guantanamo prisoners, describes Obama as an "Afro-Leninist," and said the folks at Media Matters were "brownshirts. This speaks for itself.

3. Ann Coulter says liberals should be beaten with baseball bats and tried for treason. How can a person be consume with so much hatred? Worse yet, how can any rational person take her seriously?

4. Dick Morris says they're "traitors" who should be decapitated. Well now!

This is pure insanity. You can't make this stuff up.

Our country's in trouble folks. We have to work together if we're going to survive.

I guess my question would be: If there was a revolution in the U.S. and right wing extremists were to prevail, what would happen to ordinary folks who don't adhere to the policies and thought of the far right?

Would they be imprisoned....or worse?

God help our country.

Even though I am retired and living in a senior citizens home, I can protect the new president and I ain't too old to whip the Mexican's ass and Ann Coulter is a whore and she needs to step down. Our Montgomery County Police and detectives living here in Leisure World here in Silver Spring, Maryland want to have our young college students go to Mexico to clean out their money supplies to use for our education programs. The circuit judges here in the Montgomery Judicial Center in Rockville say that the Mexicans are the ones that commit crimes on our soil so there is a coalition to get revenge on the Mexican cartel for their crimes. We plan to fight the Mexicans and rob them of their cash and weapons to bring justice on them.

The obama administration has placed a gag order against the soldier who spoke out against obama’s eligibility! It’s totalitarianism! Do as I say, not as I do!
When Bush was in office many soldiers spoke out against him as the war, OPENLY, and Bush allowed them to speak openly about it. obama on the other hand can't deal with opposition, so they SILENCE it! To hell with America! We were better off under Bush, and I hated him! Obama is taking free speech away from the people, and his crony followers will joyfully accept it!
Obama is an imposter!
I do not serve him, I do not serve America, I do not give a crap about this nation any longer!
I would love to see a true revolution in the streets!

For all you right-wing, Jesus freak, whack jobs that worship this monster; there’s some thing you should know about him:

Rush Limbaugh was born into a prominent Missouri family, and raised in a town about thirty miles from the Kentucky border. His grandfather, the first Rush Hudson Limbaugh, was America's Ambassador to India in the Eisenhower administration. His uncle, Stephen Limbaugh, was appointed federal judge by Ronald Reagan, and his cousin, Stephen Limbaugh Jr, was appointed to the U.S. District Court by George W. Bush. His father was a prominent local attorney, who imbued his children with conservative ideology. His brother, David Limbaugh, is a lawyer and conservative writer.

Limbaugh came to manhood in an era when the nation had a military draft for the Vietnam war. He avoided service by having his physician certify his medical unfitness due to an "inoperable pilonidal cyst" and "a football knee from high school." He played one year of varsity football in high school, and his coach, Ryland Meyr, said later he remembered no injuries to Limbaugh. Those who loathe Limbaugh sometimes describe his pilonidal cyst as "a boil on his butt", but that is an oversimplification. A pilonidal cyst is a chronic collection of pus or an abnormal draining passage leading to an abscess, located in the opening between the buttocks muscles. It is susceptible to infection, which can be dangerous on a war front, so severe pilonidal cysts have long been (and still are) legitimate grounds for exemption from military service. The peculiar thing is that Limbaugh denies he ever had a pilonidal cyst, dismissing it as "internet bull", though the record is plain.

Limbaugh's biggest break came in 1987, when the Federal Communications Commission repealed its Fairness Doctrine, a rule that had required radio and television stations to provide equal time to both sides of political debates. Freed from any requirement to air rebuttals to provocative opinions, Limbaugh's radio style suddenly looked much more profitable, and within months he left Sacramento and signed with the ABC Radio Network, which syndicated his show from New York. Limbaugh is now syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks, which is owned by Clear Channel Communications. He is heard on about 600 stations nationwide, with little room for further growth -- there is no major market area where his program cannot be heard. "Excellence In Broadcasting", which Limbaugh frequently cites as the name of his network, is part of his schtick, but EIB as an entity does not really exist.

But Limbaugh reaches ordinary Americans, because he sounds like an ordinary American. Sometimes he sounds like an ordinary working stiff, as he complains about the wealthy elite who control America: "All of these rich guys -- like the Kennedy family and Perot -- pretending to live just like we do and pretending to understand our trials and tribulations and pretending to represent us." Limbaugh's current contract pays him $45-million per year, and he has spoken of friends who make $180,000 per year and "don't consider themselves rich". He has said of the official poverty line, "$14,400 for a family of four? That's not so bad." Commenting on corporate outsourcing and layoffs, Limbaugh once wondered, "Why is it that whenever a corporation fires workers, it's never speculated that the workers might have deserved it?"

Bottom line: He's a silver spoon, war mongering, draft dodger who is only around due to the repeal of the Fairness doctrine.

The good soldiers should know if he has the right to be president.
I think the people are having such buyers remorse over this man they eventually will look for any reason to unseat him.(legally).

The jealousy of you morons concerning President Obama completely disgusts me. We finally have a president that's intelligent, articulate, and feels compassion towards those disenfranchised Americans. Perhaps all you ignorant conservatives should form your own country and proclaim Rush Limbaugh your Divine King.

Why does the right wing have such a lenghty history of treason? Check it out:

1. Bendict Arnold was part of what is now the modern day republican party - our nation's most famous traitor

2. Joseph McCarthy - Destroyed peoples reputations and lives because they had a difference of opinion

3. The Oklahoma City Bombers - home grown right wing whackos

4. Todd Palin - husband of Sarah Palin - Alaskan Successionist

These are just a few examples. If you can stomach it, turn your radio dial to AM radio. Here's some of the things I've heard from the right in just the last 2 days:

1. Texas succeeding from the U.S.- can't have our way, can't work with their fellow americans....so lets succeed from the union

2. Impeach Obama - the guys been in office what.....2 months?

3. Armed insurrection - this is as treasonous as it gets

4. Civil unrest - rioting and such

5. Marching on Washington - what will they do when they get there?

It's as if the last 8 years never happened. The new president was handed a disaster rent from incompetance and mismanagement.

The difference between the right and left when it comes to political discourse:

Left: Crack jokes and say mean things. Try and work with others for the betterment of all regardless of diametrically opposed viewpoints. Care about your neighbor down the street who lost his job and home. Do something to help.

Right: Resort to hatred, fear and violence. Villify and threaten your fellow americans who disagree with you. Use Jesus as a crutch. Our way or the highway. The poor are just the bottom of the food chain. Adhere to an extreme form of social darwinism.

The left certainly isn't perfect by any strech, but the right is way, way out there.

History proves me out. Check it for yourselves.

These folks are dangerous!

All that BS about armed insurrection and rioting is just that, BS. Those clowns screaming for riots are too lazy to get out of their recliners to watch a parade go by. They couldn't even organize a good poker game, never mind an armed insurrection.
