“- In November 2009, House Republican leaders — including now-Speaker John Boehner — hosted and appeared at a Capitol Hill rally, where angry tea partiers were protesting against the health care reform bill. During that demonstration, the crowd, referring to the Democrats, shouted, “Nazis, Nazis.” Neither Boehner nor any of the other House GOPers left the stage. They went along with the crowd, and did not denounce this hatred. Can anyone point to a similar event, when top elected Democratic leaders cheerfully appeared before — and encouraged — such a hate-driven crowd?
– Palin, as it’s been widely noted, has routinely used gun-related rhetoric — “Don’t retreat, RELOAD” — in speeches and on her Twitter feed. Has John Kerry or Al Gore, failed (sort of) national Democratic candidates, resorted to such violence-tainted language?
– While Sharron Angle was running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) last year, she raised the prospect of armed insurrection: “If this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying, ‘My goodness, what can we do to turn this country around?’ ” Such talk did not stop the right and the GOP from rushing to help her crusade against Reid. Can you point to a mainstream Democratic Senate candidate who has openly referred to armed violence as an acceptable means to redress policy disputes?”
Uhm, Mr. Corn, yes, yes I can. Not only have numerous Senate and House members been guilty of worse rhetoric, but your beloved Obama has used much worse rhetoric on numerous occasions. In fact, Barry has even encouraged his supporters to get in people’s faces as well as bring guns to knife fights. Does this count, Mr Corn?
