Violent rhetoric in the US is very common here are a few examples from Fox "Business":
1. From John Stossel = "I think it will take visible riots to help people focus on this thing" (i.e. he is suggesting to his followers that 'we may have to riot'!)- example of violent rhetoric on the extreme right by its true believers - connects with tea party and ideological economics. http://video.foxnews.com/v/1042453656001/can-the-us-learn-from-greece/
Glenn Beck advocates violence...
A look at Glenn Beck & his tendency to promote extreme forms of violence . [People like Glenn Beck having political and social power scare me the most - To understand why please watch this video.] . Instead of violent rhetoric I think the sources of the problems need to be rooted out as I explained here (i.e. aggressively and not the way outlined in GOP funded Liberal Think Tanks).
This will be the result of these violent promotions by Fox News if they achieve thier rioting goal:
1. "He says looting makes "powerless people suddenly feel powerful" and that is "very intoxicating"." -http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-14463452 .
2. Simple opportunity for lawlessness by the breakdown of infrastructure -http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/news/2007/07/dayintech_0713
3. Normal behaviour motivated by greed or heartlessness or simply living by the law of the streets - an example of a complete breakdown of law http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14456065
4. DAILY SHOW LINK: Compared to discord in Pakistan or even other riots in the US, Britain is very tame - at 2mins and 40 secs, check out the looters standing in line to loot (there were also images of looters helping each other under glass windows etc. - took 2 days for 'batons' to be allowed... no one has guns etc.)
The many perspectives on the Britain riots: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-14483149 -
The LA riots were much more violent (there is literally no comparison): http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-14501282
The anger at the violent reaction created its own mass movement: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-14490167
The problem of the rumor mill that leads to mass hysteria (at local, national or global levels) and is something that the US media does on a regular basis with its fear marketing (though that may have gone down?), Fox news has taken this fear mongering to criminal levels(IMO): http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-14490693
Another look at the origin of the 2 reactions in England; "Are they rioters, which implies a political objection, looters, which doesn't, or vandals, etc? It's interesting too that a lot of the people cleaning up embraced the Sun's 'scum' so readily, a reflexive response of anger." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-14506159 .
Side Note: The fall of the currency has been a major drumbeat amougnst the Koch Brother Libertarians. This hyperinflation result was predicted for 2001. Then 2012. Now 2013? We have to accept that the Fox Business Libertarians don't understand the economy anymore than a 10 year old. Who, besides the EXTREMELY old & decrepit, are the only ones who believe their crap). But yes, in every outright lie there is a kernel of truth. For QE the kernel of truth is this: "As the Bank of England prepares to vote on quantitative easing, a report argues the extra cash 'exacerbates already extreme income inequality'". Which actually helps the Koch Brothers and any oil manipulations they may be up to. So Fox Business needs to re-think their incitement strategy. Maybe even get an education if the most recent news is any measure of their knowledge:
Public Employee Union vs. Wall Street Bonus Contracts...
An example of how Reagan is continuously saying the opposite of what the Tea Party/GOP wants:
Notice That Judge Napolitano has been following standard GOP policy when trying to incite violence. This violent approach to a possible drone (that could be just a remote controlled kids plane, a pizza delivery from Dominos or a bird - considering GOP follower obervation capabilities, backed by the Supreme Court I might add - is backed by a violent shock jock by the name of Alex Jones (who claims there is some GOP revolution rising but Adam Kokesh proves regularly that that's not the case, it's just some kids who know the truth of Government in this internet age and Alex Jones is trying to help herd them into the arms of the GOP through it's Koch Brother Libertarian outreach program led by Fox Biz Libertarians & people like Alex Jones):
Judge Andrew Napolitano has warned Congress not to act “like potted plants” regarding the increased use of unmanned surveillance drones without warrants over US skies by military, government, and law enforcement agencies.
Echoing the recent comments of his Fox News colleague Charles Krauthammer, Napolitano also said that “The first American patriot that shoots down one of these drones that comes too close to his children in his backyard will be an American hero.”
VIDEO - From Bill Moyers David Stockman on Crony Capitalism - January 20, 2012- http://billmoyers.com/segment/david-stockman-on-crony-capitalism/ Moyers & Company explores the tight connection between Wall Street and the White House with David Stockman, former budget director for President Reagan. Now a businessman who says he was “taken to the woodshed” for telling the truth about the administration’s tax policies, Stockman speaks candidly with Bill Moyers about how money dominates politics, distorting free markets and endangering democracy. “As a result,” Stockman says, “we have neither capitalism nor democracy. We have crony capitalism.” Stockman shares details on how the courtship of politics and high finance have turned our economy into a private club that rewards the super-rich and corporations, leaving average Americans wondering how it could happen and who’s really in charge. “We now have an entitled class of Wall Street financiers and of corporate CEOs who believe the government is there to do… whatever it takes in order to keep the game going and their stock price moving upward,” Stockman tells Moyers.
The problem here is powerful, privately owned enterprises, who finance such warmongers as above and who influence the nations wealth by having connections into the Government (which in the case of 2008 involved the biggest theft in history, which the Corporate Media Cronies is helping to cover up) i.e. Crony Capitalism – [Visualized] http://www.thevisualeverything.com/2011/12/crony-capitalism-visualized/
1. Socialism by Robert Heilbroner (Article From Library of Economics): "Socialism—defined as a centrally planned economy in which the government controls all means of production" http://www.culturesocietyblog.com/2009/05/socialism-by-robert-heilbroner.html

3. Summary of "Socialism", Keynesian Economics & "Road to Serfdom" (by F.A.Hayek)
Obamacare, brought to you by Johnson & Johnson: When push comes to shove, corporate interests will always have the upper hand in determining public policy (i.e. it was made by a corporation - A CAPITALIST! )
Obamacare architect heads to Big Pharma: Liz Fowler again exemplifies the blurred lines betweenthe healthcare industry and Washington
Big Pharma Allies: Cigna, Aetna, Blue Cross -- they're allies, not competitors, when it comes to stopping a public plan
Lobbyists: Their influence on Washington dates back to the days of Lincoln -- and it only seems to be growing
Socialism is when ALL factors of production are provided by the State - basic econ 101 definition - (the healthcare bill is market based from Heritage Institute based on Romney care). The GOP & Fox News call anything that goes against Ayn Rand's business survival fiction "socialist". - But, logic doesn't work. The guy's running Fox News are being investigated for 9/11 phone hacking in England and close associates of Rupert Murdoch HAVE BEEN CHARGED - Also,
FOX NEWS IS CONTROLLED BY AN OLIGARCH WHOSE ASSOCIATES ARE BEING INVESTIGATED AND BEING CHARGED WITH CRIMES...
Most recently Rupert Murdoch's close family friend was charged with perjury...
Rebekah Brooks...has an interesting history with Murdoch...
In March 2003 she courted controversy -- and hinted at the scandal to come -- when, appearing before a government committee, she admitted that her paper had paid police officers for information. Brooks held the Sun post until 2009 when she was handpicked for the role of News International chief executive by the paper's owner, media magnate Rupert Murdoch.
The pair had been close for many years: Murdoch is said to treat Brooks like a daughter.
