Stop The Extreme Vitriolic Rhetoric

From the mouth of Barack Hussein Obama.

After all, such violent words clearly have no place in American public life, and should be the cause of the immediate arrest and imprisonment of the speaker, and the permanent exile of that speaker from political life.

And while we are at it, we need to get Barack Obama to quit choosing words that clearly allude to a desire to have his opponents murdered.

Asked by Smith whether he’s “aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversation” about him, Mr. Obama replied, “Well — I mean, I think that — when you’ve listened to Rush Limbaugh or Glen (sic) Beck it’s …”

“It’s beyond that,” Smith interjected.

“It’s pretty – apparent,” the president continued, “and — it’s troublesome. . . . “ [EMPHASIS ADDED]

Hmmm. . . "troublesome". I know what event from history was immediately brought to mind by that choice of words to describe those who stir up opposition to the policies of Barack Obama.

Yes, Henry II's angry cry -- "Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?" -- resulted in a troop of his followers murdering Archbishop Thomas à Becket, his great opponent, in the Canterbury Cathedral.

Barack Obama is an educated man. Surely he knows the the historical precedent he invoked with his choice of the word "troublesome" to describe political opponents. Will Obama -- personally, directly, and publicly -- renounce any intent to provoke acts of violent with his irresponsible, inflammatory word choice? Will he reaffirm his commitment to the US Constitution that he swore to "preserve, protect and defend" at his inauguration? Or will he be responsible for every threatening word, any act of violence, directed against Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or any other radio or television host who speaks out against the policies of the Obama Regime?

Oh, that's right -- such a standard does not apply to liberal public figures, does it? It only applies to conservatives -- especially when there has been an act of violence engaged in by a lunatic with indeterminate political beliefs and no apparent connection to conservatism.

Now some on the Left (and even those on the Right or in the Center) may think that finding anything sinister in the words above is either absurdly silly or an exercise in rank partisanship. And you would be absolutely correct. After all, no SANE person would understand his words to be an actual incitement to violence, and such heated rhetoric has been used from the very beginning of our nation by political partisans (look at the election of 1800 for examples of this). Attempts today to link folks like Palin, Limbaugh, and beck to the deeds of a crazy man with stated political views diametrically opposed to theirs are equally absurd -- and indicative of dishonesty and/or hypocrisy on the part of those making the links
