Adkisson's reading list

I certainly don't think that Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Michael Savage had anything to do with David Adkisson's lethal rampage in Knoxville.

Inside the house, officers found "Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder" by radio talk show host Michael Savage, "Let Freedom Ring" by talk show host Sean Hannity, and "The O'Reilly Factor," by television talk show host Bill O'Reilly.

The shotgun-wielding suspect in Sunday's mass shooting at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church was motivated by a hatred of "the liberal movement," and he planned to shoot until police shot him, Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said this morning.

Adkisson, 58, of Powell wrote a four-page letter in which he stated his "hatred of the liberal movement," Owen said. "Liberals in general, as well as gays."

Adkisson said he also was frustrated about not being able to obtain a job, Owen said.
Millions of people consume the garbage these conservative commentators spew every day, and most of them don't go out and kill the liberals that they think are ruining the country.

But, can you just imagine what the right-wingers would make of it if the police had found The Audacity of Hope in Adkisson's house, instead of Let Freedom Ring?
