Here is the twentieth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christian radio shock jock, and self acclaimed figure model for the NRA set, Stan Solomon. He not only praised the murder of Trayvon Martin, but also, issued a call to violence.

Isn't Solomon just about the most despicable waste of human flesh any of us have seen in a very long time? I am completely appalled and disgusted by his latest rantings!

Usually I just have to laugh about the simpletons you portray, TC, but seeing Carrie' video yesterday and today seeing your two really got me angry. "shoot IT and find out later". Frack the first amendment, this would've put Solomon before a judge here in Europe.
"black and Latino public school and college...are “being taught” to hate white people". I don't think so Mr. Solomon, you're doing an excellent job yourself.

Hey! Jerry Springer may host a show for idiots, but he has a great sense of humor which makes any comparison to conservatives a disservice to him. BTW, he's gone on record numerous times talking about what a bad show his is and why you shouldn't watch it if you're sane.

Okay, that picture of the mostly-naked guy with all the guns was totally disgusting and I think my eyes are bleeding. Thanks a lot, TomCat. I’m just lucky I didn't look at it directly, my whole brain probably would have burst into flames.

Ugh, barf and yuk. Is this the poster child for insanity? What kind of person poses for a picture like that? What kind of macho man thinks it's cool to pick on women? (just Republicans, I guess...)

I hope he pulls the trigger and takes out the family jewels! That will give him something to rant about, although I'm sure he'd find a way to twist it! He is lucky that the US has freedom of speech. Although I do think that his rhetoric does come close to inciting a riot or the overthrow of the government, and that is sedition.
I giggled at his reference to "the left". Presumeably this would include atheists who don't believe in God, and therefore would not believe in Satan.
"The left, which is godless and serves Satan, has an agenda."
What a mindless putz who has an IQ of 1, and that only because he is breathing!

Terrie has me rolling sideways with laughter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...I have never heard of this Solemon guy, so when I first saw the picture, I thought "what the..?", then I watch the video......and heard this neo/Nazi/repub and that made my head spin like a Linda Blair clone, which is what I was thinking before seeing Terrie's comment!

Thank you all, and apologies for breakfasts lost. About that picture, thank God I wasn't there when it was taken, but, to the best of mu knowledge, it is authentic. Under high magnification, there is no halo that one usually finds when the head is edited in. I did thought twice about using it, and did so because it represents the current state of the Republican party so accurately.

Seems to be a thoroughly nasty and ridiculous person who has truly extremist views. And is hardly representative of most Republicans (just as eco-terrorists are hardly representative of most Democrats.)

Lindsey. I disagree, although when I day Republicans, I'm referring to the leadership, politicians and pundits, not all registered Republicans. Here's the difference. Democratic politicians either ignore or condemn eco-terrorists. Republican politicians flock to Salomon's radio show to get hios stamp of approval.

I think, TomCat, you're comparing apples to oranges (terrorists vs. a radio show). True that I don't recall any Democratic politicians supporting eco-terrorism publicly. I also don't recall any Republican politicians publicly supporting abortion-clinic bombers. Few politicians of either party are likely to admit it openly if they support actual physical terrorists.

To clarify, I was speaking of your argument as it relates to the concept of assigning blame to one set of politicans who may appear on a radio show and comparing that to approval of another set of politicians who fail to approve of terrorism.
And when it comes to politicians cozying up with controversial public figures like this radio personality, that happens on all sides of the political spectrum. Just one example is how some "liberal" political figures are willing to associate with Louis Farrakhan, who has made many public statements over the years about his views promoting racism, anti-Semitism, and the like. Controversial speakers like Solomon, Farrakhan, etc. can be quite popular among those who want to (whether wholly or temporarily) appeal to the more extremist parts of various voter bases.
