Rounding up those who promote hate? Let's start with the MSM shills
CBS News and U.S. News have posted a stunning, disturbing opinion piece by Bonnie Erbe. Here's who she is, for those of you who may not be familiar with her work:And what's Bonnie wish for some people she doesn't like? HEART ATTACKS for one Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice.
Bonnie Erbe is a contributing editor at U.S. News & World Report and hosts PBS's weekly news analysis program, To the Contrary with Bonnie Erbe. She also writes a weekly syndicated newspaper column for Scripps Howard News Service.
Top credentials. Her voice is loud and reaches far. Here's what it's saying:
Round Up Hate-Promoters Now, Before Any More Holocaust Museum Attacks
Erbe takes her lead from a statement made by Playwright Janet Langhart Cohen [Langhart is the wife of war profiteer and former Sec'y of Defense, William Cohen, who is also on the board of AIG] on CNN following the Holocaust Museum shooting:
She said something must be done about ridding the Internet and the public dialogue of hate speech. I agree.
And what is that "something"?
Isn't it time we started rounding up promoters of hate before they kill?
It was on Erbe’s To the Contrary that a panelist wished Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas would die. On the November 4, 1994 edition, then-USA Today columnist and Pacifica Radio talk show host Julianne Malveaux, spewed: "The man is on the Court. You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person."And more from the gracious host, Erbe:
On the PBS public-affairs show To the Contrary over the weekend, host Bonnie Erbe told panelist Linda Chavez that a woman of her age doesn't need to worry about being raped." So National Review’s John J. Miller and Ramesh Ponnuru revealed in their Washington Bulletin e-mail on Monday.
Here’s the transcript of the relevant portion of the show as provided by National Review, with some slight corrections and added words I got off the MRC’s taped copy of the program:
Linda Chavez, Center for Equal Opportunity: "If you're someone like me, who lives out in a rural area -- if someone breaks into my house and wants to murder or rape me or steal all of my property, it'll take half an hour for a policeman to get to me."..
Bonnie Erbe: "And if you look at the statistics, I would bet that you have a greater chance of being struck by lightning, Linda, than living where you live, and at your age, being raped."
