Right Wing Extremist "Joe the Plumber" Suggests Lynching Senator Chris Dodd!

On Thursday evening, while in Wausau, WI at an event for Americans for Prosperity (a Conservative Group which helped organize the Tea Parties) Samuel "Joe the Plumber" (JtP) Wurzelbacher suggested Senator Chris Dodd should be lynched. The Teapartiers in the group were outrageous as they compared the Obama administration to Stalinist Russia. JtP peppered his hate speech against Obama with insults hurled at Sen. Dodd saying several times, "Why hasn't he been strung up?"

With the current environment of Hate Crimes on the rise, it is unbelievable that Wurzelbacher is screaming these epiteths and agitating those in his audience, suggesting any politician be assassinated as he did. He is absolutely disgraceful!!!

It is unbelievable that he is allowed to speak this way. This is NOT free speech! These are death threats! He should be arrested! Any groups (including his friends at AFP and Fox News (e.g.: Hannity, Beck) condoning his words/actions should be chastised by the American Public.

Back to your fuzzy definition of hate speech again.....

AZ,
Fuzzy? Calling for the assassination of a US Senator to an audience of right wingnuts is a fuzzy definition of Hate Speech?

My gosh Az. I am surprised at you.

I would expect you to also condemn JtP for advocating violence. We are living in the era of numerous attempts on our President's life, the assassination of a Physician in the name of overturning Roe v Wade, police shootings in the name of supporting the 2nd Ammendment, and another on an immigration center by right wing zealot who could not get to the politicians he wanted to murder, and a major increase in Hate Crimes against Latinos, Gays and Jews, and you say JtP's call to lynch Senator Dodd "Fuzzy" hate speech? Unbelievable!

Hate speech: n. Bigoted speech attacking or disparaging a social or ethnic group or a member of such a group.

I don't agree for calling for violence (yet), but that is hardly hate speech. Last I checked, Dodd was a straight, married, Christian 'white' guy..... Did 'Joe' call him out for any of those things? Or was was it because he doesn't agree with Dodd's voting record?

"Wurzelbacher was outrageous as he compared the Obama administration to Stalinist Russia."

I agree, it's looking more like Mussolini's Italy....
Just speaking from history....

Um, you got your quotes wrong again:

"Christopher Magiera of Wausau, a board member of Americans for Prosperity and a local political activist, said he saw a "Stalinization of America" taking place and that "the only thing that separates Stalinist Russia from what we have in Washington right now are the re-education and death camps."

So Joe didn't say that.....

The group the conservative right wingnuts are attacking and calling for assination of: the Democrats.

Dee said...

The quote was correct! The attribution was incorrect, however it is the same point! The whole group of them are demonizing athe presidency, the democrats and JtP is advocating assassination of a Senator.

Why is it you cannot see it for what it is. Raw, Unadulterated Call to Violence by an extreme rightwing group of individuals. With the number of extreme right wingnuts executing violence (e.g.: Roeder, Poplawski, etc. etc.) it is insane to instigate a crowd of like minded zealots to such violence and murder.

Trouble with Shitting Dogs :

A gardener once told me that dogs are not dirty and filthy for shitting on other people's lawns, sidewalks or driveways.

The dirty and filthy guy is the owner of the dog that does not train the dog to shit at home, or that does not carry a bag and a little spade for gathering the filthy production.

In this story the dirty and filthy is not poor "Joe, the plumber" an ignorant and pathetic poor guy that is trying to earn a few pennies without too much effort.

The Filthy and Dirty is the Conservative Group that organizes Orgies of Imbecility and Tea Parties.

And why can't you see that the Federal Government is openly trying to 'Nationalize' every industry, every home (read the recently passed hr.2454), every school, creating 'youth corps', raising taxes, etc.

Furthering (and expanding soon) 'Bush's illegal wars', eugenics programs in the US and 3rd world countries, forcing people to move (remember the plan to level parts of cities?), and eventually revoke the Second Amendment.

On top of that, they are trying to regulate speech and the very structure of the internet, banning public demonstrations, and demonizing ANYONE that disagrees with the above issues.

Learn the history, for we are doomed to repeat it.

Really....

A Liberal party, city, and Mayor...

And I remember the anti-war protests, naming of a sewage plant after the President, and pop-culture 'icons' calling for upheaval....

Our enemies never forget, and we never remember.

Az,
You still didn't answer the question. Why is it you cannot see it for what it is. Raw, Unadulterated Call to Violence by an extreme rightwing group of individuals?

Just admit they are advocating violence/murder! NOTHING justifies their doing so. NOTHING.

The Arizonian said...

From the article, he asked "Why hasn't he been strung up yet"...

It may just be semantics, but that isn't saying "Lets string him up"...

The Arizonian said...

"Raw, Unadulterated Call to Violence by an extreme rightwing group of individuals?"

I wonder if the British thought the same of the colonies....

Dee said...

Az,
Are you suggesting Joe the Plumber and all of his supporters move to an island in a new world and lay a claim to it?

If so, not a bad idea.

Here
are a few they might try.

How many times does a freedom loving limited government society have to move Dee? I'm not referring to the Republican party BTW....

I have considered moving to Iraq, at least there I can legally have one (1) full-auto AK as granted by their newly formed constitution.

If things keep going the way they have been, I would expect certain states reminding the Fed of the 10th amendment and exercise their sovereignty.

Bush was the worst regime ever.
....Till now.....

Dee said...

Az,
I am surprised at you.
We finally have a President who cares for We the People.
Bush took us into a wrongful war, wrecked the economy -borrowed trillions from China, gave business a free wheel through deregulation, promoted crony owned detention centers and made us the most hated country in the world.

Now, President is doing all he can to fix the messes Bush got us into. I am confident he will fix the economy, healthcare and the immigration mess, while getting us out of the mess in the middle east and dignity and respect back the Presidency. And he is doing so, asking for all of our input.

In the meantime, the extreme right wing is clammoring to kill him and bring riots and a race war and hate crimes to the streets. That is why they want their AK 47s, I don't know why you want yours.

Americans want Peace and Humanity and Freedom and Equality. I think our President can do this!

God Bless America
God Bless President Obama

I think you might be delusional....
All of his 'fixes' are draconian at the very least. And yet, he says that he won't raise taxes on those making under $250,000....

Oh, wait a minute:
From http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gRFiYOvPeiQwPzqOaidacVdtvN_gD994RHN01

"During last year's presidential campaign, Obama criticized Republican rival Sen. John McCain for proposing to tax workers who receive employer-provided health insurance to raise money for covering the uninsured.
Now the president may have to take back his words and break a campaign promise not to raise taxes on Americans making less than $250,000.
Although McCain's idea was far more sweeping, key senators are saying it won't be possible to pay for expanded coverage without taxing some health benefits.
The Senate Finance Committee is eyeing plans with a total premium cost above $17,000 for family coverage. The theory is that taxing such coverage — Obama calls it "Cadillac" — will encourage people to be thriftier consumers of medical services, and that can help bring down costs.
Labor unions are flabbergasted that Obama hasn't slammed the door on the idea."


That doesn't include the taxes in the new "Climate Bill" burning it's way through Congress...

Just don't complain later that no one warned you...
