Shots fired at a congressman's campaign headquarters. Windows smashed at Democratic offices across the country. A coffin placed on a lawmaker's lawn. Hate-filled voice mail messages left on members of Congress' phone lines.
The Brownshirts are having their Kristallnacht. Are you really surprised ? Even here you have no shortage of imbecile "patriots" with a handful of brain cells, a lifetime of failure and inadequacy, and now a convenient scapegoat to vent their rage on.
This is the price you pay for "liberty" stripped of intelligence, integrity and responsibility. Only question that remains is who's gonna get killed first ?
"Republican leaders continue to embrace the tea parties, though, and aren't publicly condemning the hate and violence--instead treating these events as "isolated incidents."" (MoveOn.org newsletter)
I am seeing a disturbing pattern and Republican Congressmen had better start denouncing this sort of "civil disobedience" by the tea partiers and Palin supporters. If protesters want to criticize the health care reform law they'd better find less violent ways to express themselves. What they're doing is NOT patriotic and anybody that says so is a fool. I'm ashamed that other countries are seeing our citizens acting so irresponsibly.
It should be interesting to watch the Sunday morning talkshows to see how this all plays out in the media.
