“Ted Rall Calls for Armed Revolution; MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan Offers His Endorsement of the Idea,” Ace writes:
I don’t want to ever hear a goddamn thing from the left about the supposed tendency to violent solutions on the right.
Not a goddamn thing. Ratigan should be fired immediately.
Here’s an excerpt from Rall’s book that Ratigan is pimping:
A war is coming. At stake: our lives, the planet, freedom, living. The government, the corporations, and the extreme right are prepared to coalesce into an Axis of Evil. Are you going to fight back? Will you do whatever it takes, including taking up arms?…
You know what it reminds me of?
Update: Stacy McCain adds, “Watching that video of Ted Rall being interviewed by Dylan Ratigan, I’m wondering why Columbia University (where the tuition is $40,000 a year) can’t teach basic economics:”
Rall speaks of “1% of the country owning 24% of the income” and “people getting thrown out of their homes, over 10 million of them.”Ted, they’re not getting thrown out of their homes. They’re getting thrown out of the mortgage company’s homes. It’s not your home until you pay for it. If you’re living in a $300,000 house and you don’t make the payments, that $300,000 house isn’t yours anymore. And it never really was.
Ted Rall and Barack Obama: Columbia University graduates who can’t grasp basic concepts like property ownership.
In Ted and Barry’s minds, doesn’t it all belong to the state, anyhow?
