Check out around 0:46 of this video promoted by the liberal Think Progress.

Yeah, shooting Glenn Beck in the head is perfectly fine!

UPDATE: On HBO's Bill Maher show, gay sex advice columnist Dan Savage says of the GOP: "I wish they were all f--king dead."

But Hube, don't you know that is symbolic, metaphorical violence not meant to suggest actual violence -- not like putting a target on a congressional district, which is a call for assassination of the "targeted" congresspeople (at least when Republicans do it, but not when Democrats do it).

Of course,the key is that such violent imagery is only wrong when the wrong people engage in it for the wrong cause. If the right (or should we say "Left") people use it for the right (or should we say "Left") reasons, it is perfectly legitimate.
