What if the Arizona shooter had been a Muslim?

What if accused Arizona shooter Jared Loughner had been a Muslim? Host Lisa Loving speaks with Sara Robinson, senior fellow at the Campaign for America's Future? The shooting in Arizona is the result of twenty years of conservative media propagating violent rhetoric against liberal Americans. This is what domestic terrorism looks like, and we would be much faster to call it that if the shooter had been a Muslim.

Short Description: 
Are conservatives responsible for the Tuscon shootings? No. But their rhetoric set the tone.

 For months, Abe and Joe have spotlighted the surge of violent, nationalist and eliminationist rhetoric emanating from the right. We have seen such things as guns at political rallies, questions about the president's citizenship, an anti-socialist revival and a dramatic increase in death threats against elected officials. We have seen a rash of domestic terrorism.

And now a man has opened fire on a crowd gathered to see a Democratic Congresswoman. Is there a connection? Today, Abe and Joe examine the reactionary forces at work in the United States -- and their consequences.
