Words dont matter, do they?

Thanks in large part to the right wing over the last decade, I think the chickens are coming home to roost. WIth Limbaugh becoming mainstream, Faux gnus spewing 22 hours of vitriol (followed with 2 hours of news) using the vitriol as an independent source, and our politicians playing on and up the fears of the masses things like this are bound to happen and will happen more frequently unless people start standing up to the hatemongers.

Road Rage, Accident Centers on Obama Bumper Sticker

Mar. 26, 2010

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Nashville man says he and his 10-year-old daughter were victims of road rage Thursday afternoon, all because of a political bumper sticker on his car.

Mark Duren told News 2 the incident happened around 4:30p.m., while he was driving on Blair Boulevard, not far from Belmont University.

He said Harry Weisiger gave him the bird and rammed into his vehicle, after noticing an Obama-Biden sticker on his car bumper.

Duren had just picked up his 10-year-old daughter from school and had her in the car with him.

"He pointed at the back of my car," Duren said, "the bumper, flipped me off, one finger salute."

But it didn't end there.

Duren told News 2 that Weisiger honked his horn at him for awhile, as Duren stopped at a stop sign.

Once he started driving again, down Blair Boulevard, towards his home, he said, "I looked in the rear view mirror again, and this same SUV was speeding, flying up behind me, bumped me."

Duren said he applied his brake and the SUV smashed into the back of his car.

He then put his car in park to take care of the accident, but Weisiger started pushing the car using his SUV.

Duren said, "He pushed my car up towards the sidewalk, almost onto the sidewalk."

Police say Harry Weisiger is charged with felony reckless endangerment in the incident.

Wow, that's incredibly stupid. Not very surprising though, they promote that sort of thing.
