I never - NEVER - want to hear another word about the rhetoric of the "tea party" rallies. There's no "there" there, of course, but it hasn't stopped the media from stretching every causal remark, deconstructing every word, and flat-out lying to make the tea partiers seems like radical nutjobs.
But maybe it's just an attempt to hide the radical nutjobs that make up the entire Democratic wing of American politics? Here's today's liberal hate-fest directed at the American people...
First, Harry Reid declares all who oppose his "crony capitalism" financial reform bill to be...wait for it...
Reid said that Republicans “keep stalling, keep stalling.” He charged Republicans with trying to pick apart the bill before it even comes to the floor where both sides could offer amendments and openly debate the measure.
“Even some Democrats would like to offer amendments on this bill,” Reid said. “All of this talk from Republicans about wanting to do something about this bill before it gets on the floor is really anti-Senate and anti-American.”
Next, the douchebags that make up the city council of Los Angeles want to create an "apartheid America", in which Arizona is blacklisted and boycotted like, say, a Jewish nation that may have attempted to defend itself:
Two Los Angeles City Council members called Tuesday for an economic boycott to protest a tough new immigration law in Arizona.
"It's important that the second-largest city in the country respond to a legislative act that, in essence, promotes persecution and racial profiling of a group of people that make up a large number of this country's citizenry," Councilman Ed Reyes said.
"More than half of the folks living in Los Angeles are Latino, and for us to do nothing is unacceptable," he said. "For us to not to take heed to this action, which essentially is promoting this concept that every state can establish their own federal immigration laws, is just wrong and dangerous."
How many of those Latinos are here legally, Reyes? And did you ask those who are what they think of the 16 illegals in the one-bedroom apartment next door?
And in San Francisco, they're barring folks from travel to Arizona. But in case you were concerned, it's still perfectly legally to get on your knees and kiss the ass of an Islamist terrorist:
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom announced today a moratorium on official city travel to Arizona after the state enacted a controversial new immigration law that directs local police to arrest those suspected of being in the country illegally...San Francisco's move comes as the Board of Supervisors introduced non-binding resolutions calling for comprehensive immigration reform and a boycott of Arizona because of the new law...
Travel restrictions? Boycotts? Over a state exercising its right to live free of fear? Don't worry, though, Newsome is being...smart:
the mayor today convened a taskforce that includes representatives from the City Attorney's Office, Controller, city purchasing office and his chief of staff to look at a "smart and effective" targeted boycott, Newsom spokesman Tony Winnicker said.
We've seen what "smart" means when used by Democrats. In other words, expect San Francisco to wind up inadvertently boycotting New Jersey....
Again: This is a lot of trash-talking and fear-mongering for a measure that is supported by 70% of Arizona residents and almost 60% of the nation at large. Do the Democrats realize - as they often admonish us - that words have consequences?
