Conservative Blogger Arrested For Sending Suspicious Powder to Olbermann And Others

According to Media Matters, Chad Castagana who was arrested for sending suspicious white powder to Keith Olbermann and others including Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Jon Stewart and David Letterman is a conservative blogger who was associated with the conservative website FreeRepublic.com.

This move toward violence by a conservative isn't a surprise given the rhetoric of violence being used by many conservatives such as Ann Coulter. For the pundits their demonization of liberals may simply be a means of jacking up ratings and book sales, but for their faithful followers that same demonization may be the rationalization they need to justify criminal behavior and otherwise unacceptable levels of violence.

Instead of attacking humans they are attacking subhumans who don't deserve to live.

It's not enough for those who use violent rhetoric to either ignore people like Chad Castagana or to say they don't condone violence, they must drop the violent rhetoric if they want people to believe they are against all violence.
