That's Jesus speaking, just in case it's not clear.
If you had taken the trouble to read the verse in the full context of it's true meaning you would know that it alludes to Jesus's second coming and his judgement at the end of time rather than literal violence. He is also speaking within the parable itself in the role of the king (ie in the 3rd person) so it is not meant to be a literal command.
You have a real problem with metaphors and symbolism don't you? You might as well cut the Bible up into single letters and paste them into sentences to make it say whatever you want it to. History is full of people who use the Bible in this way and take single verses out of context to make it look as if God supports violence (David Koresh , Spanish inquisition , etc).
You have such a fragmented , literalist way of looking at the Bible it reminds me of the dangerous fundamentalists. You seem to have an agenda and you will edit and quote to make it fit your agenda.
