Pumpkin Head

What happens, Wolf Blitzer, when somebody pumps rounds into your little pumpkin head and says, “It’s just political”?

Hah. You people. You guys better have some helicopter jump jets and be ready to get out of here real quick if the actual civil war kicks off. I mean, I’m not the one that’s calling for violence; you’re going to get wrecked bad. There are a lot of people like Santa Claus been making a list, been checking it twice about who’s been naughty and nice. And you kick off Civil War 2, baby, you’ll think Lexington and Concord was a cake walk.

Advocating violence

I don’t need some coming-of-age deal to kill a bunch of liberals… we have to start getting ready for insurrection and civil war because they’re really pushing it… You’re trying to start a civil war with people. You’re taking our kindness for weakness. Do you understand the American people will kill all of you? You understand? We are killing machines, you fools… But I can shoot bull’s-eye at 400 yards, dumbass. I mean, they have no idea who they’re messing with.

Demagoguery

The formula for making you, the listener, mad hasn’t changed a bit, yet people keep falling for it. It amazes me.

… I have found anytime you express an opinion, half the people that hear it are going to disagree with you by law of averages. If you embellish the opinion with confidence and cockiness, then you’re getting into generating hatred and so forth. There are a lot of people who would like to be confident about what they think. Most people aren’t. Most people are trepid about what they think. And if they are subjected to someone such as myself who’s not, it tends to offend them. But the key is knowing that nobody can get everybody to like them.

Keeping in mind that the law of averages indicates that half the people who listen to you are not going to like you, (you’ve) still got to find a way to make those that don’t like you to enjoy listening to your program and that is really the key to the entertainment that people turn on radio to be entertained, entertained, entertained. … A lot of people say, “Do you really believe the stuff you say?” I don’t know. That’s for you to figure out.
