The Rightwing Hate Machine (first part)

The radical right wing of American politics; has in recent years gotten more and more vile, full of hate and fear.

Political pundits like Ann Coulter and talk show hosts like Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh fire off their hate-seeking-missle on a daily basis.

However I draw a distingtion between what I call the 'right-wing' and 'traditional conservatives'. There is nothing wrong with having a conservitive view of politics. But right-wing politcs in today's America has moved so far to the right of the political spectrum, that it's moved into dangerous teretory. The Young Turks news show compiled a very compelling list of quotes of right-wing talk show hosts and pundits; exposing their radical views, and here they are all credit goesto the TYT Network.

Three parts to this, first below is quotes, second is incidents of right-wing violence and third is some forum posts I collected online.
