Curiously, while the corporate media have been obsessively salivating and chewing over Rev. Jeremiah Wright's every word, Republican mentors and supporters have been emitting their own brand of toxic swill in a near vacuum.
Not so much media attention was given to McCain's evangelist pal John Hagee, who has said that "Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans," and something about the Catholic Church being a great whore.
Then there's pastor Rod Parsley, who wrote that "America was founded, in part, with the intention of seeing this false religion [of Islam] destroyed."
And why should wholesome TV viewing Americans be aware of Rush Limbaugh's provocative and threatening "dreams" of riots in Denver during the Democratic convention?
Could it possibly be there are different standards for the radical righties? Or is it simply just a given that hateful bigoted speech is expected from them, so it's not really newsworthy?
There's not much we can do about spiritually poisoned preachers, but Limbaugh's mouth has sponsors. Have a look at some his hate drenched comments here, and then feel free to boycott and send a message to his advertisers.
Here are his words.
Screw the World! Riot in Denver!
We don't bring people together. That's not how this country works. We defeat our political adversaries so that they're in the minority.
We need as many ignorant Americans to wake up and find out exactly who the modern-day Democrat Party is as dominated by the far left in this country. We need that to be seen. Now, I am not inspiring or inciting riots. I'm dreaming. (singing to the tune of White Christmas) "I'm dreaming of riots in Denver." Remember 1968? And which party did that? It was the radicals in that party, the anti-war radicals, the same bunch of clowns that are running around defining the Democrat Party today.
Riots in Denver at the Democrat convention would see to it we don't elect Democrats -- and that's the best damn thing could happen for this country as far as anything I can think: Don't elect Democrats!
