“Our rhetoric does NOT cause violence! (But hip-hop does!)”

A good point from Todd Pinsky:

Hello Mark,

I am hoping that someone with a decent-sized audience can write an
article or post pointing out that the people claiming that “our
rhetoric didn’t cause a damn thing” are from the same political gene
pool as the folks who held congressional hearings on the question of
whether rock music lyrics could influence the behavior of young
people. The result was a ridiculous “warning” sticker. Perhaps right
wing rhetoric should have an “excessive bullshit content” warning
attached.

Thanks.

A regular reader and loyal fan,
Todd
