The Two Minutes Hate: August 12, 2009

It would be a shame if the American people allowed themselves to be badgered and bullied by hate-speakers like Beck, Savage, Hannity, O'Reilly, and Limbaugh into doing the corporations' dirty work for them.

But that's what they're urging us to do: Fabricate irrational fears based on lies, magnify them, and then incite the American people to psycho-vigilante violence.

I just don't think we are going to let them do it to us. Maybe it's really up to the police to prevent shootings, muggings, disruptions of democratic meetings, intimidation of elected officials, etc. But, ultimately, if the people refuse to be incited by evil, evil cannot thrive.
