Liberal radio show host Mike Malloy may be the only left-leaning figure to boast having “rhetoric of rage,” and perhaps this explains why Malloy found it unusual that MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann listed him as one of “eight or ten people” who have not repudiated violence.
Malloy said in a Tuesday airing of his radio program that he’d like to see conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh choking on his own throat fat, but because Malloy doesn’t have the ability to actually make this happen, he’s not a true threat to Limbaugh.
“The rhetoric that comes from me is the rhetoric of rage, and, have there been violent images? Of course,” Malloy said. “Rush Limbaugh choking on his throat fat – that you know, to me, that is not a threat. I can’t, I wish I could, but I can’t reach into his throat and jiggle up his throat fat so he suffocates. I can’t do it.”
Malloy also took shots at former Vice President Dick Cheney, who Malloy deems “a mass killer…by definition.”
“It doesn’t matter what you think [Cheney] is or think he isn’t,” Malloy said. “His policies going back to the 60s are that of a mass killer.”
Upon condemning Cheney, Limbaugh, “freak” Andrew Breitbart, CBS, ABC, and NBC, Malloy said, “I respectfully disagree with Keith Olbermann, I don’t believe I deserve a place on his list at all.”
