In February 2011, we first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. On Tuesday, liberal talker Stephanie Miller proved that assertion correct when she opined that former Vice President Dick Cheney should’ve died instead of Robin Williams, Truth Revolt reported.
“My point in all this is that Dick Cheney is still alive,” she said. “For some reason, Robin Williams, a national treasure — and Dick Cheney is still alive.”
Comedienne Kathleen Madigan jumped in, saying, “Still talking too! Giving interviews.” Madigan and Miller spent much of the program talking about the problems and addictions that plagued Williams, causing the depression that ultimately led to his decision to commit suicide.
“Apparently not depressed, won’t shut up about what is wrong,” Miller said of Cheney. “Oh, he has a lot of thoughts about Iraq now.”
The two liberals then made light of Cheney’s heart problems as they played clips of the former vice president blaming Obama for the situation in Iraq. Throughout the exchange, Trey Sanchez said, they made “snarky” comments while playing “cuckoo” sound effects.
This isn’t the first time Miller has wished death on conservatives. Expressing hope that conservatives die is a staple of liberal talk radio, since that’s far easier than formulating a coherent argument.
In March 2012, for example, a guest on her program suggested critics of Obama’s energy policies “should test the alleged laws of gravity by jumping out of a plane without a parachute.” A year earlier, she and Media Matters’ Eric Boehlert had a good laugh when Fox News reporter Mike Tobin was assaulted on live television.
Other liberals have even suggested a form of political genocide, expressing a desire to see everyone on the right killed. Liberal talker Mike Malloy, for example, once fantasized about an “angel of the Lord” decapitating everyone in the Tea Party. Gay sex columnist Dan Savage once told Bill Maher he wished every Republican was “f-g dead.”
Eliminationist rhetoric from liberals like Miller, of course, prompts others to engage in the same hate speech. In March 2012, liberals expressed hate upon news that Cheney was recovering from heart surgery. While that is just one example, entire libraries can be filled with examples of liberal hate.
On just about any given day, liberals like Miller prove theirs is an ideology of rage and blind hatred. It’s almost enough to make one think they really do want a second, bloody civil war in America.
