The FIrst Thing We Do, We Kill All the 'Other' Guys

UPDATE III: Watch who you threaten. Read the Washington Post, Blogger's Case Could Test the Limits of Political Speech.

UPDATE II: Should Hitler and Nazism be used as a metaphor? Read the Washington Post, At the Town Halls, Trivializing Evil.

UPDATE: Will all the Republi-con pandering to fear, anger and hatred backfire? Read the Washington Post, A Price to Pay for the Town Hall Rage.

More on how Republi-con Fear, Anger, Hatred = Violence, a Virginia Republi-con candidate's fierce call to resist President Obama's political agenda -- with bullets, if necessary :

"We have a chance to fight this battle at the ballot box before we have to resort to the bullet box," Crabill said. "But that's the beauty of our Second Amendment right. I am glad for all of us who enjoy the use of firearms for hunting. But make no mistake. That was not the intent of the Founding Fathers. Our Second Amendment right was to guard against tyranny."
