You know better than that, Ken - there are kooks on both sides of the aisle. I can't count the number of times I've seen similar articles about Lefties threatening to kill Pubes.

It's worse than a religion-war, and you know it.

EDIT:
Also - I've seen that cartoon before (I'm on Fiore's mailing list), I knew it was "old" but didn't realize it was from early November. Kind of a "delayed response" on it, eh?

Bush got thousands of death threats every day. I never heard you complain about that even once.

"The recipient of occasional death threats, [conservative columnist Michelle Malkin] has twice felt the need to move her family to undisclosed locations—and in recent years decamped from suburban Washington to the flyover wilds of Colorado. When she goes on book tour or lectures on college campuses, she is accompanied by a private security guard. “I limit the amount of traveling and speaking that I do, but you just never know,” she says."

You know why I've never posted that before, Ken? Or any items about any death threats to conservatives, Republicans or libertarians from left-wingers? Because EVERYBODY gets death threats, and nuts of ALL ideologies make them. It's meaningless.

That's because I sent them. Ok, not really. Please don't send the Secret Service to my house.

D'oh! I didn't realize you were kidding!

Sorry about the handcuffs and cavity-search.

Don't worry, it was a cranial cavity search. They didn't find anything.

Default Race Card

Hey Ken I think it's time you played the race card. Your point or lack of one does not seem to have a stable foundation. Klazy Boy.

Ken fights back!

Good to see you fight back rather than whine. But there are a couple of pointers you might consider. First you should just pick one or two articles. Too many at once dilutes whatever point you are trying to make. I usually stick to two themes. One is exposing climate "science" lies and the other is examples of totalitarian govt and the total incompetence of totalitarian govt. You might take a bit to decide on a single idea and then find several articles on the same concept before moving on to another one.

Then, you need to be able to defend your point. Just posting a shotgun salvo of articles and then not defending your points dilutes their effectiveness as well.

Here's to honorabre worthy opponents!
