Good commentary on Bloomberg: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-...hate-talk-era-commentary-by-amity-shlaes.html "...if the evil moment is going to be exploited, let it be exploited in a useful way, as an impetus to change the tone of discourse in the U.S., to self-censor our own modern habit of violent talk. Olbermann, around the same time he was creepily assigning blame, also offered up something good. It was that: âViolence, or the threat of violence, has no place in our democracy, and I apologize for and repudiate any act or anything in my past that may have even inadvertently encouraged violence.â Everybody else (right, center, and left) should be saying the same thing. At the same time, we can drop the character assassination thatâs become modern entertainment. Thatâs true for Rachel Maddow, CBS, Fox, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, CNN, Jon Stewart, and the birthers. Itâs true for all the snarky blog posters and tweeters who gleefully suspended their inhibitions and keyed in material about crushing wingnuts, impaling feminazis, and so on. Itâs also true for all the violent talkers in Arizona, whose own sheriff commented that the state was out of control...." Just because someone does not share your views does not mean they are your enemy.
