gnossoss papadopoulis:

They are all talk and funny costumes. Conservatives get the job done:

-- July 2008: A gunman named Jim David Adkisson, agitated at how "liberals" are "destroying America," walks into a Unitarian Church and opens fire, killing two churchgoers and wounding four others.

-- October 2008: Two neo-Nazis are arrested in Tennessee in a plot to murder dozens of African-Americans, culminating in the assassination of President Obama.

-- December 2008: A pair of "Patriot" movement radicals -- the father-son team of Bruce and Joshua Turnidge, who wanted "to attack the political infrastructure" -- threaten a bank in Woodburn, Oregon, with a bomb in the hopes of extorting money that would end their financial difficulties, for which they blamed the government. Instead, the bomb goes off and kills two police officers. The men eventually are convicted and sentenced to death for the crime.

-- December 2008: In Belfast, Maine, police discover the makings of a nuclear "dirty bomb" in the basement of a white supremacist shot dead by his wife. The man, who was independently wealthy, reportedly was agitated about the election of President Obama and was crafting a plan to set off the bomb.

-- January 2009: A white supremacist named Keith Luke embarks on a killing rampage in Brockton, Mass., raping and wounding a black woman and killing her sister, then killing a homeless man before being captured by police as he is en route to a Jewish community center.

-- February 2009: A Marine named Kody Brittingham is arrested and charged with plotting to assassinate President Obama. Brittingham also collected white-supremacist material.

-- April 2009: A white supremacist named Richard Poplawski opens fire on three Pittsburgh police officers who come to his house on a domestic-violence call and kills all three, because he believed President Obama intended to take away the guns of white citizens like himself. Poplawski is currently awaiting trial.

-- April 2009: Another gunman in Okaloosa County, Florida, similarly fearful of Obama's purported gun-grabbing plans, kills two deputies when they come to arrest him in a domestic-violence matter, then is killed himself in a shootout with police.

-- May 2009: A "sovereign citizen" named Scott Roeder walks into a church in Wichita, Kansas, and assassinates abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

-- June 2009: A Holocaust denier and right-wing tax protester named James Von Brunn opens fire at the Holocaust Museum, killing a security guard.

-- February 2010: An angry tax protester named Joseph Ray Stack flies an airplane into the building housing IRS offices in Austin, Texas. (Media are reluctant to label this one "domestic terrorism" too.)

-- March 2010: Seven militiamen from the Hutaree Militia in Michigan and Ohio are arrested and charged with plotting to assassinate local police officers with the intent of sparking a new civil war.

-- March 2010: An anti-government extremist named John Patrick Bedell walks into the Pentagon and opens fire, wounding two officers before he is himself shot dead.

-- May 2010: A "sovereign citizen" from Georgia is arrested in Tennessee and charged with plotting the violent takeover of a local county courthouse.

-- May 2010: A still-unidentified white man walks into a Jacksonville, Fla., mosque and sets it afire, simultaneously setting off a pipe bomb.

-- May 2010: Two "sovereign citizens" named Jerry and Joe Kane gun down two police officers who pull them over for a traffic violation, and then wound two more officers in a shootout in which both of them are eventually killed.

-- July 2010: An agitated right-winger and convict named Byron Williams loads up on weapons and drives to the Bay Area intent on attacking the offices of the Tides Foundation and the ACLU, but is intercepted by state patrolmen and engages them in a shootout and armed standoff in which two officers and Williams are wounded.

-- September 2010: A Concord, N.C., man is arrested and charged with plotting to blow up a North Carolina abortion clinic. The man, 26-year--old Justin Carl Moose, referred to himself as the "Christian counterpart to (Osama) bin Laden” in a taped undercover meeting with a federal informant.

Pap smear has posted at least one lie:

Stack wasn't a conservative. See here and here. That one stuck out for me, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are others on pap smear's list who weren't conservatives.

Looks like papadouchenozzle's barking up the wrong tree in several instances - like a true dim-witted progressive, it confuses nazis and white supremacists with conservatives.

Hey, douchenozzle - the nazi's were from the same mold as Stalinists, Marxists, and current socialist dems. All for the State, and the State over all. As for white supremacists - they're an offshoot of the old racists southern Dems like that paragon of virtue, Robert Byrd.

NAZI's and white supremacists=conservatives? How dumb do you have to be to believe that?

"Get the job done," dip? You listed 18 incidents.

One, as noted, was no "right-winger.

In one case, no suspect was ever identified.

In five more, they were stopped before they did anything.

The Holocaust shooter was no "right-winger," he was a neo-Nazi who was old enough to be an original Nazi, and quite possibly senile.

The Pentagon shooter was a bipolar pothead and registered Democrat.

So, wherever you're cutting and pasting your talking points from... they suck.

Which means that, for not checking them before repeating them, you suck, too.

gaius piconius:

Gnopo; Deal with it...the historical mosaic of bloodshed in the twentieth century was most strikingly left related...very much left related. Recall Lenin and Stalin and their 'whip society into shape policies' generating millions and millions of victims, all of them soviet slave citizens. Remember your socialist son Adolph, (who your progressive companions struggle to disown), and the fewer millions of victims of his 'national socialist' glory. Bring to mind the greatest socialist killer of them all, Mao, revered even today by prominent Democrats as a truly favourite philosopher, and, too, the killing fields of socialist Cambodia, or comrade Che, a psychopath, still idolized and embraced as a fashion icon by progressives everywhere, especially in progressive American academic circles. Then, finally, the reeducation camps of Mao that shocked his young socialist believers who found themselves enslaved and humiliated among the agricultural peasants, victims of their own socialist zeal. The total killed...what...90-100 million! The casualties that survived...far fewer... but hugely significant. This socialist legacy, Gnopo, is yours; and for myself, my hatred of socialism of this type, as for anyone with even a small imagination,is palpable. Dare you struggle against it's validity? Or perhaps you limit your social conscience and social aspirations to merely the pilfering of all future wealth and freedom for the elevation of today's less fortunate. The European model, what!
Anyway, Gnopo, feel free to include the humble Gaius as a hater for your next pitifully contrived listing of conservative criminal hatred. The notoriety could be my only hope for immortality.

Whoa . . . . looks like somebody got bitch-slapped for testing the Wizbang waters. All while I was taking a nap. Carry on guys.

Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler,... (Below threshold)

Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, the greatest mass murderers in history, were either communists or socialists.

They believed in state control of the means of production and all realms of public life, pogroms against the wealthy, control of the media, i.e. all the great "progressive" modes of operation.

Those with conservative principles founded this country and believed in faith, family, love of country, private property, equality under the law, limited government, i.e. what the "Tea Party" believes.

So, tell me, scumbag, which are those creating "hostile" political noise? Who are those who have killed the most innocents?

gnossoss papadopolis:

I am hardly a liberal and I most certainly don't agree with what insanity has gripped the right. I was not born in America but I became a citizen in 1985. I am simply chronicling the crumbling of America as the left and right fight it out, ignoring the real problems, while China, India and the EU, watch the circular firing squad that is collapsing the empire. No real solutions are ever discussed here it's just a place where uniformed crybabys demean your fellow countrymen. America was once a dream come true. Now it is factory of propaganda by the left and the right manipulated by corporate money teetering on collapse.

So you show up on a conservative blog parroting a cut-n-paste set of left-wing talking points, and now you expect us to believe you're some sort of more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger moderate? Seriously?

Run along back to Kos, or whoever is paying you, and tell them your concern-troll schtick needs work.

Who shows up at the ABC News event re the Tucson shooting but a liberal Democrat nutter screaming, "you're dead" to the head of the local Tea Party.

gnossoss papadopolis:

Yes Garandfan the multi-national banking interests did quite well when the government handed them hundreds of billions of dollars with TARP. Corporate interests are having record profits while the American people are being sucked dry. But instead of addressing the real problem of politicians on both sides doing the biding of Wall Street and multi-national corporations instead of serving the interests of the American people the balance of power has shifted from "We the People".

These interests are profiting nicely by keeping the American people at war with each other.

Who is this moron? He starts out claiming conservatives "get the job done" when it comes to violence and when he's called out on the lies, he starts babbling nonsense about banks and profits and corporations.

1. Conservative a belief in limited central government and the self determination of of the individual. The belief that rights come from a higher power and that no government can take our rights away without due cause.

Since the belief is in limited government as created by the founding documents we are not "Anti- government.
We do hoever have a right to

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

1. We have Freedom of speech
2. We can voice dissatisfaction with government .
3. We have the right to meet with other like minded people and talk about things.

Treason is also found to be illegal. in the Document so White Supremacist , Nazi or any other group that wants to levy war against the USA are not in the Conservative.

Even if we look at Left and Right wing as applied during the French Revolution. Where Right was traditional and left was radical social change revolution.
Revolutions tend to be more bloody, and by there very nature are therefore more violent. look at the WTO meetings, PETA, ECO Terrorist , Anti Vivisectionist etc.

Let's see... gnososs is "hardly a liberal," but cheerfully cuts and pastes bogus smears against conservatives lifted from one of the more dishonest and hyperpartisan leftist blogs around as if they were gospel truth, without bothering to fact-check them in the least first.

Nice WINDY statement, that says absolutely nothing in answer to my question.

If a society "descends into chaos", how do the moneyed corporations benefit?

You made the statement - or 'cut and pasted' from somewhere else - thus you agree with it. So now, defend it. Or would that require you to actually think for yourself?

Garandfan -It's re... (Below threshold)

Garandfan -

It's really simple -

1. Corporations throw economy into chaos.
2. ?
3. Profit!

That nobody can describe how 2 works is a sign of the sheer evil genius of corporations.

For leftist thinking, as exemplified in CA -

1. Government forces businesses to the point they leave through excessive regulation
2. ?
3. Everyone lives happily ever after in a well-regulated environment.

Again - 2 is a mystery to the rational mind. But it must be something pretty damn amazing.
