The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010  —  The Tucson massacre ghouls who are now trying to criminalize conservatism have forced our hand.  —  They need to be reminded.  You need to be reminded.  —  Confront them.  Don't be cowed into silence.
Paul Krugman / New York Times:
Climate of Hate  —  When you heard the terrible news from Arizona, were you completely surprised?  Or were you, at some level, expecting something like this atrocity to happen?  —  Put me in the latter category.  I've had a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach ever since the final stages of the 2008campaign.

Government-created climate of fear  —  (updated below)  —  One of the more eye-opening events for me of 2010 occurred in March, when I first wrote about WikiLeaks and the war the Pentagon was waging on it (as evidenced by its classified 2008 report branding the website an enemy and planning how to destroy it).

George F. Will / Washington Post:
The charlatans' response to the Tucson tragedy  —  It would be merciful if, when tragedies such as Tucson's occur, there were a moratorium on sociology.  But respites from half-baked explanations, often serving political opportunism, are impossible because of a timeless human craving and a characteristic of many modern minds.

Discussion: Washington Monthly and Daily Kos
Digby / Hullabaloo:
Drawing The Line  —  I see that Senator Rand Paul has weighed in and declared that Jared Loughner was mentally ill (which, as far as I'm concerned, doesn't take a medical degree to see.)  But he also seems to think this means that the fact that he assassinated a Democratic congresswoman is irrelevant …
