After the passage of the health care bill, windows shattered in the offices of Congressmembers across the country, and Congressmen like Bart Stupak received death threats. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin and others encouraged opponents of the bill to "reload" and "take aim" at health care supporters. Where is the violent rhetoric headed? We ask David Neiwert, author of The Eliminationists: How Hate Talk Radicalized the American Right, what it all means, and why we should take it seriously. GRITtv with Laura Flanders brings participatory democracy onto your computer screen and into your living room, bridging the gap between audience and advocates.
