FLASHBACK: Conservative Radio Host Says “If ballots won’t work, bullets will!” (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Sunday, January 9th, 2011 |
In this video Florida radio host Joyce Kaufman, speaking at a Tea Party Rally in 2010… says that “if ballots don’t work, bullets will”. Essentially, they are saying “if my party loses, we might start shooting people”. Well, you’ve gotten your wish Joyce!
Although Gabrielle Giffords has survived and appears to be conscious and responding to commands, she will have a long road of recovery ahead of her. Now that the initial incident has passed, reflection can begin.
The Republicans should really take some time to think about the message they are sending out to voters about the government. It may seem unfair to point fingers towards Republicans… only Republicans have been feeding into hating the government and that the government is always the problem… which is because their candidate lost the election.
Due to our new 24 hour news cycle and our attention defecit disorder, as a nation, we forgot that the Tea Party’s roots are NOT valid to begin with. The Tea Party only formed because Barack Obama won the election and sore-losers wanted an outlet to vent their frustrations. People like Sarah Palin became popular in the movement because of their willingness to go ‘one extra step’ farther, the willingness to draw targets on enemies, the willingness to say things no one else in the GOP would say because they were just too dangerous. They are all to blame though, not directly, but Fox News and the Republicans, and the Tea Party have catered to an atmosphere of hate that has not been felt in American politics in a long time.
Here’s a video of Tea Party protestors stomping on a woman they claimed was trying to assault Rand Paul. Their claims were that she was trying to “force her sign into the car”, as if her sign is going to hurt Rand Paul somehow. Take a look at these monsters, so sure of themselves, so sure of their mental health and well-being that they will kick down a woman and stomp on her. It’s truly delusional behavior.
