Whose Country Is It?
By CHARLES M. BLOW March 26, 2010 The far-right extremists have gone into conniptions.
The bullying, threats, and acts of violence following the passage of health care reform have been shocking, but theyre only the most recent manifestations of an increasing sense of desperation.
Its an extension of a now-familiar theme: some version of take our country back. The problem is that the country romanticized by the far right hasnt existed for some time, and its ability to deny that fact grows more dim every day. President Obama and what he represents has jolted extremists into the present and forced them to confront the future. And it scares them.
Even the optics must be irritating. A woman (Nancy Pelosi) pushed the health care bill through the House. The bills most visible and vocal proponents included a gay man (Barney Frank) and a Jew (Anthony Weiner). And the black man in the White House signed the bill into law. Its enough to make a good old boy go crazy.
Hence their anger and frustration, which is playing out in ways large and small. There is the current spattering of threats and violence, but there also is the run on guns and the explosive growth of nefarious antigovernment and anti-immigrant groups. In fact, according to a report entitled Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism recently released by the Southern Poverty Law Center, nativist extremist groups that confront and harass suspected immigrants have increased nearly 80 percent since President Obama took office, and antigovernment patriot groups more than tripled over that period

Gotta love that “hope and change” eh? :)
This violence-baiting by the Left is reaching absurd levels.
It’s almost strident enough to be a Clinton op... nah...

Lately all of these "right wingers are haters" stories come from this demographic. They emboldened to make these claims because they know this WH will back up any racist claims they make.
This man is inciting hate, pure and simple.
Stopped reading right there.
That's not a name, it's a verb.
Judith Miller former NYT “reporter” now at Fox commenting on a Fox roundtable show about the violence against democrates
“...the bullet through the window appears unrelated.”
and was quickly corrected:
“Judith you are a reporter, how can you say that a bullet through the window of Republican (some Congress person) is unrelated?”
Lately all of these “left wingers are haters” stories come from this demographic. They emboldened to make these claims because they know this WH can’t back up any racist claims they make because the WH is filled with stupidity and Obama is the CEO.
He would if is UFO wasn’t in the shop.
England should have been asking the same question of Herself prior to letting millions of muzzies run all over Her cities.
We are going to answer that question real quick.
“Chuck Blow” should have been named “Blow Chunks”.
If you think that one is tough I know of one man who was an executive at an area industry as recently as the eighties who went by the name of...are you ready...Dick Puffer.
Should have bought a Japanese one!
