With Fox News Channels Bill O’Reilly consistently sewing the seeds of hate against Kansas Dr. George Tiller, you can’t help but wonder to what extent his never ending “Tiller The Killer” tirades may have played in prompting loan assassin Scott Roedar to walk up on Tiller inside of his church and execute him at point blank range.

Even less wondering is required in the case of a U.S. Census worker who was found hanged from a tree on Sept.12 in rural Clay County Kentucky. In the weeks and months leading up to the lynching of 51-year-old Bill Sparkman, it was Fox News Channels Glenn Beck who was stirring the pot of fear and conspiracy regarding the U.S. Census. During a segement, Beck asked guest Judge Andrew Napolitano:

“Who will be first to grab the pitch-fork? – Who will be the first TO SNAP if these people (Census Waorkers) don’t stop playing these games!?!?”

Beck wasn’t alone in his crusade. And Minnesota congresswoman
Michelle Bachmann (MN-R) was raised the rhetoric bar way out of my reach.
She always made a point of distributing a consistent message of fear by always reminding others that The U.S. Government used census data to round up all of the Japanese

On Saturday, a user on Face book posted a poll asking, “Should Obama be killed?” The blogger GottaLaff spotted the poll yesterday and called the Secret Service, which has now launched an investigation. “We are aware of [the poll], and we will take the appropriate investigative steps,” said Darrin Blackford, a Secret Service spokesman. “We take these things seriously.”

Face book has taken down the offensive poll and disabled the third-party application that was used to create it. Barry Schnitt, Facebook’s spokesman for policy, also told ThinkProgress that the company was following up with the developer to make sure that the application has “better procedures in place going forward to monitor their user-generated content.”
