Those of us who identify with the left must set an example by seizing the moral high ground on this point. While I still stand by my chapter in WAKE UP, YOU'RE LIBERAL about dirty politics, threats of violence are where we should not go. And we should call our friends on it if and when they do it.
Here are, as part of the challenge wrap up, some entries from over the weekend submitted by rigt-wingers. (No need to send more, folks, and thanks for playing! I, for one, feel enlightened if a little soiled.)
Don't doubt, my fellow progressives, that there are more--many more--where these came from. I have about 20 more acceptable entries along these lines. And I received a few that were so ugly that I won't even post them because they were so racist and bigoted that I'm afraid people might think *I'd* posted them.
P.S. Some people have asked whether I checked these links to make sure they were authentic. Answer: of course.
The challenge is met, I am depressed and disgusted, and now I'm going to grab my first cup of coffee.
Give the guy kudos(::gag:: Can't believe I'm saying that) for not attempting to spin this too much and for decrying the sheer animalistic hatred being espoused by his leftist kinsmen. Thanks to Jonathan Hawkins for the link.
Why couldn't it have been Vice President of the Buffy/Angel Institute? I'd be soooo there.
What are you monkeys clapping for? The fact that he called terrorism victims little Eichmanns or the fact that he lied about being an Indian? Liberals, I have some news that may floor you: the fact that conservatives hate someone doesnt mean hes not a mammoth asshole. And Ward is an asshole you could build a suspension bridge across. An ordinary asshole is to Ward Churchill as a colonoscope is to a Greyhound bus with a camcorder on the dashboard.
I haven't bothered to comment on this particular douchebag because I don't find him all that interesting. Hypocrisy, self-importance, anti-Americanism, lies: these are the tools in trade of modern leftist academia. In my opinion, Churchill's comments are getting more press because he actually made them on record. Most crap like this simply passes beneath the radar. And while I think he's a reprehensible, lying sack of shit, I don't really care what happens to him. The fact that he's drawing a paycheck from the University of Colorado would bother me if I lived there. As it is, I'm getting a big kick out of watching the university get it's reputation besmirched by someone that should never have been hired. At least with the national press' attention, a few more people around the country might wake up and realize what kind of instruction their children are getting for 20+ grand a year. And that would be a good thing.

Update: Welcome Delphi Forum readers! Stick around and visit some more; I love the company. more...
He knows more about you than you will ever know about him. There are the tangibles: your name, your address, your phone number. And there are the countless intangibles. If he has worked in the racket for a few years--and a decade's labor on the pizza road is not so unusual--he has glimpsed the insides of thousands of homes and apartments. He has borne witness to unimaginable squalor. He has breathed in the stink from your unemptied garbage and your beige urine-soaked carpets. He has gawked at the regal excess of your Lake of the Isles mansion. He has made countless numbing visits to your bleak, ill-lit shithole apartment. He has even caught the scent of the hydroponic marijuana you furtively cultivate under grow lights in the basement.
You should know this: If you stiff the pizza man, he will hate you. There are Nazis. There are baby rapists. And there is that vast class of indifferent, callous swine who stiff the pizza man. Same shit, different name. On the other hand, if you do him up right--prompt exchange, $5 tip--the pizza man will sing your praises to his fellow drivers. If you tip him extravagantly--say, $20 or more on a large order--he will personally arrange an audience with the pope to make the case for your beatification. To the pizza man, the tip is the thing.

You see a fierce green dragon.
With what, your bare hands?
Congratulations. You've just killed a fierce green dragon with your bare hands. Amazing, isn't it?
And by the way, that dwarf really pissed me off. A lot.
Three whole days of nothing but drinking beer, talking to other beer lovers, drinking beer, eating, drinking beer, releasing great gobs of methane into the atmosphere. It just doesn't get any better than that. Oh, and did I mention the drinking of beer?

After news of Napoleon's victory in the Battle of Austerlitz was conveyed to British Prime Minister William Pitt's, Pitt pointed to a map of Europe and said: "Roll up the map; it will not be wanted these ten years." If the Supreme Court sides with New London, we might just as well roll up the Bill of Rights, for we won't need it any longer.
The federal indictment said that in 2002 and 2003 Abu Ali and an unidentified co-conspirator discussed plans for Abu Ali to assassinate Bush. They discussed two scenarios, the indictment said, one in which Abu Ali "would get close enough to the president to shoot him on the street" and, alternatively, "an operation in which Abu Ali would detonate a car bomb."
According to the indictment, Abu Ali obtained a religious blessing from another unidentified co-conspirator to assassinate the president.
More than 100 supporters of Abu Ali crowded the courtroom and laughed when the charge was read aloud alleging that he conspired to assassinate Bush.
Abu Ali is charged with six counts and would face a maximum of 80 years in prison if convicted.
Conspiring to assassinate a US President gives you only 80 years in prison? I've got a better idea: how about an unlimited number of years underground? Unlike the wingnuts the frequent the DU(probably some of the people laughing in court), I'd support the death penalty for someone who conspired to kill a Democrat president. I don't have the stomach to wade through the fever swamps today, but I'll guarantee you that there will be lots of cheering and "atta boys" from a certain segment of the ultra-leftists in this country. I take that back: they'll probably be pissed off that Abu Ali failed in his assignment.
