Who incites right wing bloggers to violence?

TV? Newspapers? I think it is talk radio hosts. They regularly call for journalists to be killed. Can someone at the FBI please connect the dots?

On November 12, Reuters reported that Chad Castagana had been arrested in California for "mailing threatening letters containing a suspicious white powder to celebrities and U.S. politicians," including House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA), Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY), talk show host David Letterman, Comedy Central's Daily Show host Jon Stewart, and MSNBC's Countdown host Keith Olbermann. -- Media Matters

What if in an interview with Castagana he says he got the idea from listening to Ann Coulter or Melanie Morgan? What happens to the radio hosts who are calling for the death of people on the radio? Do they bear any responsibility? Are they part of inciting this violence?

Think I'm over reacting?

Just yesterday Melanie Morgan said this about Nancy Pelosi. "We've got a bulls-eye painted on her big laughing eyes." ( audio link)
Given the fact that Speaker Pelosi is now one heart beat away from the President and that they just arrested a Freeper for sending Nancy Pelosi white powder, does that count? Who should I contact? Or should I just shrug it off because Melanie Morgan is a republican and she can say anything she wants on broadcast radio?

These evil lying chickenhawk violent con talkers ARE inciting and/or are repeatedly trying to incite their violent evil lying followers to commit acts of violence!

And evil Republican violent liars like Morgan get away with it, and KNOW they can get away with it, not just because Liar Bush and the lying Republicans control the government and also control the FCC, meaning that Morgan and "people" like her will not only never be arrested and/or indicted and/or taken off the air unless an extreme violent act takes place, Morgan and these other evil violent cons continue to be sustained by their allies throughout the right wing conservative corporate Republican Party controlled news media, which either ignores and/or are complicit in their violent actions.

Yes she does. She bragged about how at her church Pastor Tim would be shocked to know she was "the Worst Person in the World" And that there was another member of their church who was also "The worst person in the world."

The one who is really the scary one is Sussman. His view of Christianity is very strange.
