Fun with Deadly Glenn Beck Quotes

Show me someone on the left with even half the soap box of Beck who has said anything close to this shit:

Every night I get down on my knees and pray that Dennis Kucinich will burst into flames.
I'm thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I'm wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need to hire somebody to do it. ... No, I think I could. I think he could be looking me in the eye, you know, and I could just be choking the life out.
So, Speaker Pelosi, I just wanted to — you gonna drink your wine? Are you blind? Do those eyes not work? There you — I want you to drink it now. Drink it. Drink it. Drink it... By the way, I put poison in your...
I’ve been sitting here for the last few minutes trying to come up with a list of people I want to kill with a shovel. [more]
I want to kill Charlie Rangel with a shovel.

If you're feeling up to it, there's a whole list of Beck quotes here. It's almost as fun as my Bush quotes page. Of course I could do this with a whole host of other wing nuts, but why bother? The paranoia and murder imagery comes almost completely from the right and anyone who isn't as crazy as Beck knows it. When one of the right's most prominent voices is openly contemplating a list of people to kill with a shovel, there can be no comparison. There is no equivalence with the left on this. 

Since birds of a feather flock together, and since Beck is pretty damn crazy, it stands to reason that some pretty crazy people are listening to him. And he knows it. But if someone on his list winds up getting hurt or killed, he'll be the first one to call blood libel on anyone that calls him out for this shit.
