Hardball: Joan Walsh Calls Republican Critics of Obama 'Un-American' and 'Traitorous'
NewsBusters ^ | January 1, 2009 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 01/01/2010 9:21:35 AM PST by PJ-Comix

Remember when dissent was supposed to be patriotic? Well, it seems that only applies when a Republican is president. Now that Barack Obama is in the White House, criticism of him is "un-American" and "traitorous." This new "tolerant" view of dissent comes from Joan Walsh of Salon.Com as you can see in this Hardball video from Wednesday. Below is the Walsh money quote but please be sure to also watch the video since it is important to watch as she drops any facade of liberal tolerance and lets her true dogmatic soul reveal itself in both her face and voice which seems to border on dementia:

The climate right now is that Republicans use everything they can to undermine and delegitimize this president. And it‘s actually un-American. It‘s traitorous, in my opinion. Do you want to give aid and comfort to our enemies? Continue to treat this president like he wasn‘t elected and he doesn‘t know what he‘s doing! He knows what he did. He knows what he‘s doing. I‘m proud of him. I believe that he has the stalwart, resolute nature to get this done...

I wrote my Congresscritters and told them a vote for Obamascare was a vote against America.

Maybe the RNC should make an ad featuring that little quote. Oh wait. Michael Steele was last spotted on the side of a milk carton.

He’s too busy to comment because he’s adding square footage to the Big Tent (by removing the canvas that the Conservatives used to stand under).

My thoughts exactly. Criticism and delegitmizing of President Bush was alright.

Oh, that’s right. Joan never did that.

Joan Walsh needs to stick her nose in her own business. She is no expert for political commentary.

Do you want to give aid and comfort to our enemies?

Given that Obama's enemies appear to be middle class Americans like myself, yes, I do want to give aid & comfort! Guess that makes me a traitor.

From another thread:

Democrats Join Calls for Napolitano to Step Down Following Failed Attack

Napolitano was 0bama's choice for the post, does this make these Dems traitors, to demand he pull her from it due to her incompetence, the threat to the security of the nation because, etc.?

Yeah, some fat gasbag is going to tell this old Marine that he is "traitorous" and "un-American" for criticizing our mystery President. I don't think so. Communism and free-market Capitalism are in constant conflict, and we are now in a shooting war with radical Muslims. In Barack Hussein Obama (or whatever this usurper's real name is), both enemies have captured our flag and seized the reins of our government.

THEY are the traitors, not us. No pundit can intimidate me into silence. I have nothing but vile contempt for the Socialists who are destroying our country, and this seething rage will reach its boiling point in November.

Does anyone pay attention to these worn out records anymore? They just have a “Repeat the words after me” script to go by. No thought process.

It’s really getting boring. The old “Let’s use what we do against the enemy”.

Is there a straw man being built here? I don’t recall anyone complaining about the fact it took three days for Barry to respond. The criticisms have been about him treating this Islamo Fascist as if its a law enforcement case (alledgedly, suspect etc...) in his speech and not recognizing it for what it is. A terrorist attack. Also for Janet Nepalitano saying that the system worked when it broke down horribly. Also, for liberals not initially recognizing that he was not alone in carrying this out. The signs were overwhelming from the start that there were others involved in this plot.

Ok, I’m for splitting the difference. I’ll treat him like he WAS elected (duh!) and like he DOESN’T know what he is doing. (double-dub).

Yeah, Joan Walsh of "salon", huh? She has the same influence on society as that of a fry cook in Presque Isle, Maine. No offense to the fry cook.

Well when it comes to Treasonous acts the Left hold the Gold Standard.

But what about when Hillary made her famous quote “Questioning the Government IS being Patriotic”?

Does that too also make her a traitor?

Don’t hold your breath for that attack on her any time soon.

Clearly - we must be making a real dent with these weasels, so now we MUST double our efforts.

Personally, I am calling for (or actually demanding), a full congressional investigation of the dereliction of duty by this Administration for REMAKING and CHANGING our National Security to the point where we were attacked by a suicide bomber for AQ on a passenger jet. I expect this to be a major piece of the GOP’s bid to take control of the Congress in 2010?

So I guess they will be sending 0bama’s Jackbooted Thugs to my front door any day now?

Geez!

Sounds exactly like what the democrats do every time a republican is elected president.

But, in the case of Obama, everything he does is un-American and unconstitutional and devastating to our principles and our way of life. There can be no denying that it is the democrats who are the enemy within who are looking to change this country from the greatness that is once was. What the democrats and Obama are doing right now to the country was unthinkable 50 or even 30 years ago.

But, as usual, the democrats are good at accusing others of what they do. They hope that nobody will notice how they are the ones we should be keeping an eye on.

...our mystery President. That is an apt description for BarackO. We don’t know when he regained his citizenship after being a citizen of Indonesia. We don’t know when he changed his name from Soetoro back to Obama. We don’t know if he ever did pass a college course. We don’t know if he ever had a driver’s license. He is one big mystery.
