Now, they are not just racists but violent extremists!
It's been more than a month since Democrats launched the grand distraction to take attention away from their power grab in ramming the health care bill down our throats. First, the Tea Partiers were racists, claimed black congressmen, even though no proof was ever found.
Now, Dems claim that opposition to Obama's radical agenda may cause violence and terrorism on the scale of the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
Monday, Mata mused on how left wing media seemed to be marching in lockstep trying to make a connection between America's second worst terrorist attack and the Tea Parties. Mata noticed how one reporter after another expressed concern that continuing protests against Obama and the Dems would inspire violence.
As usual, it's no accident that these reporters voiced these nearly identical concerns. They got their marching orders from the top.
Not Obama himself. He's too smart for that. But Bill Clinton was available to do the job. In interviews, a speech and an op-ed in the New York Times, the former President attempted repeatedly to link the current opposition to Obama to the extremism which drove Timothy McVeigh to avenge the government slaughter of Branch Davidians at Waco during his Administration.
Clinton warned against using angry words to attack the legitimacy of elected Democrats. Clinton told ABC's Jake Tapper: "We shouldn't demonize the government or its public employees or its elected officials...I just think we all have to be careful. We ought to remember after Oklahoma City. We learned something about the difference in disagreement and demonization."
That's a funny thing coming from a man whose own political career began by protesting against his country during Vietnam while overseas as a student. And of course in more recent times, Democrats did everything they could to question the legitimacy of the Bush Administration (remember "selected, not elected") and Democrat leaders personally attacked President Bushusing the most nasty, personal language imaginable ("liar","loser"). Hate speech has been a staple of Democrat rhetoric FOR YEARS!
I'm Sick and Tired!
Even the mild rebukes for Democrat's heated rhetoric during the Bush years brought shrieking, literally SHRIEKING, outrage from Democrats like Hillary Clinton. Surely Bill Clinton remembers this? We can imagine he's heard that shriek at the end on quite a few occasions (Paula Jones, Jennifer Flowers....).
If Tea Parties Never Existed
Compared to most left wing protests, the average Tea Party looks like a church picnic. But even if the Tea Parties never existed the distrust the American people have for their government would still be an all time high as reported by the Pew Center. The Tea Parties are simply the visible face and voice of a groundswell of a majority of the American people who are rightly alarmed at the reckless, radical and dishonest thugocracy which Obama and the Democrats are imposing on U.S. citizens.
Will this enormous grass roots groundswell topple Democrat control in 2010? In Jake Tapper's interview with Bill Clinton, the former President predicted that "the outcome of the election is likely to be far less dramatic than it was in '94." Clinton went on to say that he thought the Dems would hold the U.S. House of Representatives.
Bill Clinton's a smart guy. Smarter than Obama. But if Clinton can't see the writing on the wall, what chance is there Obama will? You would almost think Clinton wants Obama and the Dems to fail in 2010? Nah!
Perhaps Clinton's goal in bringing up violence is to give a wink and a nod to Obama's union thugs who have convinced themselves it's o.k. for them to behave violently since they have been told the other side is doing worse?
