Talking Violence

June 16, 2009

The killing of abortion Doctor George Tiller and the shooting at the US Holocaust museum have followed months of extraordinarily heated anti-government and anti-Obama rhetoric. Is there any connection? Or is political speech, however aggressive, an expression of opinion and not a call to action? A discussion on this topic is held here at NPR.

The Guests:

Kathleen Parker, syndicated columnist for The Washington Post Writers Group
Jamie Kirchick, assistant editor of New Republic. He wrote “The Religious Right Didn’t Kill George Tiller,” which appeared in the Wall Street Journal.
Carol M. Swain, author of The New White Nationalism In America and professor at Vanderbilt University Law School.
