Right wing back to employing violent imagery

Bearing Drift is back to employing violent political imagery

Well that didn't take very long. Just months after the United States recoiled in shock from the horror of the attack on Gabby Giffords and her constituents, the Right Wing is back to flooding the internet with violent political images. Case in point, the image above is from Bearing Drift, the premier Republican blog in Virginia. The image is clearly intended to accuse the Left of being politically violent, but points to no actual incident. It is a provocation designed to whip up violent extremism in the Right Wing. The graphic basically invites the Right to employ violence against anyone they label a "socialist."

This is incredibly irresponsible behavior from Jim Hoeft. Just shameful.
