Fox News haters

The FBI is warning police across the country an anti-government group called, Guardians of the free Republics, is calling for the removal of governors from office and this could provoke violence by others. More than 30 governors had received letters saying if they don't leave office within three days they will be removed. Investigators do not see threats of violence in the group's message, but fear their broad call that could lead others to act out violently. With thousands of hours of hate speech being broadcast daily in even the smallest towns from coast to coast in America, and tens of millions of lying spam emails going out saying that Obama has committed or is about to commit all sorts of unspeakable crimes against our nation, we should be concerned. One of the Michigan Militia people arrested last week wrote on her blog, after quoting from a chain email she'd gotten that was spreading absolute lies about Obama, that she wanted to quote kill somebody enquote, it may well be time to ask if these radio and Fox News haters have stepped over the line to shouting fire in a crowded theatre.

The hate must stop somewhere and at sometime.

I remember not too long ago an African radio station was investigated for inciting violence between the hutus and tutsis resulting in thousands of gruesome murders. I can't remember the fate of the people involved at the radio station, they may have been sentenced and killed in a tribunal.

Of course, demonizing liberals and Jews and calling them in effect, heretics, is old history. The Inquisiiton ran in one form or another for over 600 years and systematically targeted heterodox thinkers because independent thought is anathema to Roman Catholic/Nazi and Italian fascisim.

In the months before his death, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had expanded his focus on racial justice to include reducing economic inequality. On this week's 42nd anniversary of King's assassination, Bill Moyers sits down with attorneys Bryan Stevenson and Michelle Alexander to discuss how far we've really come as a country, how poor and working class Americans have been falling behind and what America must do to fulfill Dr. King's vision.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
