It seems hard to think of a person less qualified to hop on his moral high horse with a gigantic chip on his shoulder and lecture conservatives on the subject of violence than WILLIAM RIVERS PITT. Remember, it was only months ago, last May, when Pitt was tombstoned from DUmmieland for threatening physical violence on a homeless woman...bobolink. Why did he do that? Because Pitt has absolutely no control over himself. This hasn't been his first time making violent threats yet here is is lecturing conservatives about violence in his THREAD, "THE WRATH OF FOOLS: An Open Letter To the Far Right." His thread is chock full of self-righteous rants both on the subject of violence (with which he is quite familar) and morality. Yeah, just what we need. A morality lecturer from the perpetrator of the Karl Rove Indictment Scoop Fraud. Oh, and on the subject of morality, just an idle thought here. Have you ever noticed that Pitt NEVER talks about his time as a teacher in Newton, MA? It is the only real job he ever had (gofer in the family law firm and wannabee "working class" bouncer play job don't really count as true employment). So let us now watch the person LEAST qualified to lecture the rest of us on violence and morality rant in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering why the co-author of Pitt's "best-selling book," hasn't lectured us on morality yet, is in the [brackets]:
THE WRATH OF FOOLS: An Open Letter To the Far Right
[Stand by for a morality lecture from the Hero of the Newton schoolyard.]
To: Palin-lovers, Fox "News," the "mainstream" media, and the Far Right, et al.

Just to make sure you see this before it gets deleted, here you go: ]
At the time of this writing, Rep. Giffords is lying in a hospital bed in critical condition. The God you Bible-spewing frauds love to flog the rest of us with must have been in that supermarket crowd with her on Saturday, with His hand on her shoulder, because it is nothing short of a full-fledged miracle she survived at all. Doctors are actually cautiously optimistic that she will survive, though the degree to which she will ultimately recover is still sorely in doubt. She can respond to simple commands, according to her doctors, and is marginally able to communicate. If she survives her wound, it is wretchedly certain her life will never, ever be the same.
I just thought you should know a few things about the people you helped into their graves and hospital beds this weekend.
You false patriots who bring assault rifles to political rallies, you hack politicians and media personalities who lied through your stinking teeth about "death panels" and "Obama is coming for your guns" and "He isn't a citizen" and "He's a secret Muslim" and "Sharia Law is coming to America," you who spread this bastard gospel and you who swallowed it whole, I am talking to you, because this was your doing just as surely as it was the doing of the deranged damned soul who pulled the trigger. The poison you injected into our culture is deeply culpable for this carnage.
You who worship Jesus at the top of your lungs (in defiance of Christ's own teachings on the matter of worship, by the way) helped put several churchgoers into their graves and into the hospital. You who shriek about the sanctity of marriage helped cut down a man who was about to be married. You who crow with ceaseless abandon about military service and the nobility of our fighting forces helped to critically wound the wife of a Naval aviator who fought for you in a war. You who hold September 11 as your sword and shield helped put a little girl born on that day into the ground.
You helped. Yes, damn you, you helped.
["Explain how you have the time and money to post to DU from your ******* car, you poor ******* victim."]
The "mainstream" media is already working overtime playing up the "Disturbed loner" angle with all their might. There is no doubt, from the available evidence, of Mr. Loughner's transformation into a disturbed individual. But here's the funny part: all the crazy crap he spewed, about the gold standard (a favorite of Glenn Beck, the master of Fox "News" fearmongering...so he can sell his gold scam to suckers) and government mind control and everything else before going on his rampage, is straight out of the Right-Wing Insanity Handbook. His personal YouTube ramblings were a mishmash of right-wing anti-government nonsense...the kind that attracts sick minds like Loughner, the kind that only reinforces their paranoia, the kind that finally pushes them over the brink and into the frenzy of violence that took place on Saturday. The kind that the likes of you have been happily spreading by the day.
["Leave my mother out of your comments, or meet me in the street, you ****."]
He did not act alone. You were right there with him. You helped.
["Yes, I ******* said it. Let the mods delete this. I ******* hope you read it first, you piece of shit."]
I'm talking to you, "mainstream" media people, who created this atmosphere of desperate rage and total paranoia out of whole cloth because of your unstoppable adoration for spectacle, and ratings, and because the companies that own your sorry asses agree with the deranged cretins you helped make so famous and powerful. It was sickeningly amusing on Sunday to watch Wolf Blitzer bluster and bluff on CNN about how the media owns no responsibility for this disaster. It was like watching a ten-year-old try to explain how a lamp got broken while he was running through the living room, but no, it wasn't him. It was, in reality, a pathetic display...but that is what you generally get whenever Wolf is on your screen.
["**** you. I'll PM you my address. Say that shit to my face. I swear to God, any time, anywhere."]
"Mainstream" news personalities like David Gergen and John King bent over backwards warning people not to blame Sarah Palin and her ilk for this calamity. It was a sick man who did this, they said. Bollocks to that. I hate to break this to the "mainstream" media know-betters, but words matter. When people like Palin spray the airwaves with calls to violence and incantations of imminent doom, people like Loughner are listening, and prepared to act. The "mainstream" media lets it fly without any questions or rebuttal, because it's good for ratings, and here we are. Words matter. Play Russian Roulette long enough, and someone inevitably winds up dead.
["Any chance you're anything other than a chickenshit ****?"]
Remember the run-up to the Iraq invasion, and the subsequent occupation? "WMD everywhere, al Qaeda connections to 9/11, plastic sheeting and duct tape because we're all gonna die!" was the central theme of the majority of your broadcast schedule for years...until it was all proven to be a lie. You helped the liars, you were the liars, but you knew that. You also got your spectacle, and the corporations that own you got paid a king's ransom, so everyone was happy, except the dead.
["I promise I will drop you if we ever meet."]
Tell me this is any different, I dare you. For the spectacle, the ratings and the pleasure of your owners, you ran names like "Sarah Palin" across the sky in lights, even after she should have faded into well-deserved obscurity, and helped this blister of right-wing rage fester until it finally burst. This was your show, and in perhaps the most wretched irony of all, I would bet all my worldly possessions that your ratings are through the roof right now. You got what you wanted. I hope you are pleased.
["I ******* promise."]
And yes, I'm talking to you, Sarah Palin, you unutterably disgusting fraud. You pulled it off your ridiculous website, but it's out there: you put cross-hairs - literally, cross-hairs - on Rep. Giffords, you blithered about "reloading" instead of "retreating," and you made this country more stupid and violent with every breath you took. Well, congratulations, you failure, you quitter, you inciter of mobs. You put the cross-hairs on her, and someone finally pulled the trigger. Run from it all you like, Lady MacBeth, but this blood will never be washed from your hands.
[Fraud? Was Sarah Palin the one who perpetrated the Karl Rove Indictment FRAUD?]
I'm talking to you, Sharron Angle, you walking punch-line, who talked about "Second Amendment remedies" being necessary if you didn't get your way on health care reform during your failed Senate campaign.
["If you dare, say that shit to my face. I am not hard to find."]
I'm talking to you, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, and Bill O'Reilly, and Michael Savage, and Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham, and to every other right-wing tripe-spewing blowhard blogger and Fox News broadcaster. I hope you are proud of yourselves, because this is the day you get to reap what you have been relentlessly sowing since you were forced to encompass the unmitigated outrage of a Black man winning the office of President of the United States.
["You suck. And I will wipe you out if I ever get the chance."]
That's right, I said it. Anyone who thinks good old-fashioned American bigotry and racism are not the core motivation for a vast majority of these so-called "revolutionaries" should get their heads examined. You've heard of the "elephant in the middle of the room?" Well, this is the burning cross in the middle of the room, and no amount of spin will douse those flames.
[Pitt has had an elephant in the middle of the room ever since May 12, 2006.]
I'm talking to you, Koch Brothers. Your money to create and spread this disease was well-spent; you now have one less Democrat in the House to worry about, at least for the foreseeable future. Congratulations, you un-American sacks of filth.
[Hmmm...Have you ever tried talking to your very own TruthOut colleague, the violently unstable Jason Leopold about the journalistic FRAUD you both perpetrated simply as an easy means to fame?]
And I'm talking to each and every one of you who listened to these traitors and believed the nonsense they spewed at you for no other reason than to pick your pockets for campaign/organization contributions. I'm talking to you who wore your silly fatigues and carried your badly-spelled fact-deprived signs to protests with pistols on your hips and rifles on your shoulders. You who threw bricks through the windows of politicians you disagreed with. You who shot out the windows of Rep. Giffords' office not even a year ago.
[The Magic Man who was so unstable that he threatened VIOLENCE on a homeless woman continues on and on and on with his morality lecture.]
You worked very hard to create exactly this atmosphere in America, and now it has come to be. We have entered the age of the Wrath of Fools, and we now must again exist in an America where the word "assassination" has become all too relevant.
["Wrath of Fools" from the FOOL who was so clueless that he thought he could FOOL the world with a complete journalistic HOAX.]
You helped this happen. You.
[You? You PLAGIARIST. You? You FRAUDSTER. You? You THREATENER of VIOLENCE upon a homeless woman.]
You know it. I know it. Have the guts to admit it, even if only to yourselves.
[Speaking of admitting it, almost five years have gone buy and you have yet to ADMIT that you perpetrated a journalistic FRAUD.]
This is not the end of the story, but is just the beginning. The good people of the United States of America, the true patriots, have finally seen you with your media-painted masks ripped off. They have seen what comes to pass when hate, venom, ignorance and violence goes unchecked and unanswered. You have been exposed, and the fact that it took such an unimaginably horrific act for that exposure to take place only increases the fierceness with which you will be answered. You will be repudiated, not with violence, but with the scorn and rejection you so richly deserve. Spin it as you will, scramble all you like. You are found out, and you have nowhere to hide.
[Where did you hide when you went into seclusion following the exposure of your FRAUD in 2006?]
I could go on, and on, and on, and on, but you get the gist.
[Yeah, we get the gist, Will. You feel free to perpetrate fraud, threaten violence, and possibly some sick Temporary SockPuppet immorality but you continue to wear a gigantic chip on your shoulder and lecture the rest of us on things that you are GUILTY of bigtime. ...And now his fellow DUmmies cheer on the supreme hypocrite...]
You are the best. I am in awe. And in tears..
[We know that is NOT you homeless DUmmie bobolink.]
kudos. I hope this is read far and wide.
[Oh, it will be...especially at the DUmmie FUnnies.]
it's like giving someone the ammunition and then saying you didn't pull the trigger.
[it's like giving Pitt a temporary sockpuppet and then saying you didn't go into the schoolyard.]
Bravo. Should be sent to every media outlet
["Hi. I am William Rivers Pitt, the man who fooled you with my phony Karl Rove indictment scoop back in 2006. I was wondering if you would be so foolish as to swallow my utter BS again. Thank you."]
Thanks for putting it all together in one beautifully written article.
[That will be held up as a supreme example of what an utter fraud WILLIAM RIVERS PITT is.]
I wish I was a wealthy man, so that I might have the privilege of flying to Boston tonight ...
[I'm sure Will would be happy to dip into his Trust Fund to send you money to travel to Boston to worship his hypocrisy.]
You said it very eloquently sir. I hope this gets out far and wide, although it's certain the msm will ignore it entirely.
[The MSM might not be too happy to be reminded about the fraudster who suckered them with the Karl Rove Indictment "scoop."]
