    Remember when dissent was the highest form of patriotism? Remember when the president reassured the country that a new tone was going to be embraced, and that everyone was going to learn the lessons of the tragic shooting of Rep. Giffords--that language was going to be tempered?

    Now dissent is racist, and just a shy of a year after the Giffords shooting the Vice President is comparing Tea Party Republicans to the people that murdered America's brave service men and women in Afghanistan yesterday.

    The hypocrisy slaps you in the face, and only delusional leftists so caught up in hatred are blind to it. Even the NY Times can admit it:

    “That anger reached its apex on Tuesday, when I wrote a column comparing the Tea Party Republicans to terrorists. The words I chose were intemperate and offensive to many, and I’ve been roundly criticized. I was a hypocrite, the critics said, for using such language when on other occasions I’ve called for a more civil politics. In the cool light of day, I agree with them. I apologize.”

    Here are the comments he is apologizing for:

    “For now, the Tea Party Republicans can put aside their suicide vests. But rest assured: They’ll have them on again soon enough.”

    “These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people.”

    I can not recall a time in my life when the left wasnt vile. I still remember as a child my family being chastised for having served or serving in the military. BABY KILLERS.

    Now I find them as petty as a person can get.

    There is one big difference in the direction of the words.

    The tea party spoke of being the agressor.

    This man did not say he was going to target TP people and find second amendment solutions to their policies.

    He did not talk of shooting ltea party people in the head did he?


    I m fine with him appologising and not wanting to satrt the mess back up again but you and he are missing a great big differance.

    Dont shoot me has a completely different impact on nutters as We need to go shoot someone.


    Ask a mental health professional.

    Whats been sad to watch is how many on the left just picked up with all that the MEDIA said, calling the people in this country, terrorist, hostage takers, Racist, Tea party is the KKK, etc etc and spreading it. Even their elected Representatives did it and they SAID NOTHING.

    I've never been more disgusted.

    All they have achieved is to demonstrate their complete and total inability to think for themselves. Which, when you consider it, is a good thing. Bunch of fucking borg in the Obamanation.

    Critical thinking - it's a right wing concept. :lol:

    Shockingly, you are so delusional that you can not see something as blatant as this.

    Palin put up a bulls eye target on a map of contested elections, and that was enough for you and the left to accuse her as the one responsible.

    He may have not directly asked for the shooting of TP Republicans--but he compared them to the people our country is currently at 'war' with. It would be akin to DURING WWII comparing politicians to Nazi's.

    Let me ask you this, if some moron out there reads his words as literal, and believes the Tea Party Republicans are just as a threat to the nation as terrorists and does go out and shoot someone, who is responsible?

    You are a pathetic partisan hack :lol:

    Now a days they insist those incidents never happened. During boot camp on our first trip off base. We were harassed by the local yokels. It didnt turn out well for them. IDIOTS.
