Posted on 04/04/2010 6:58:36 AM PDT by kristinn
Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA), speaking on Meet the Press this morning, equated with terrorists the thousands of Americans who thronged the Capitol during the recent Tea Party protests against the Democrats' takeover of the health care system.
Harman was talking about the arrests this week of 'militia' members charged with domestic terrorism and how their alleged plans were to use improvised explosive devices as part of a plot to kill law enforcement officers.
Harman directly pivoted from that to invoking the Capitol Police officers who guard Capitol Hill, saying that they were the only thing protecting Congress from a similar fate during the health care takeover protests.
Harman chairs the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence, Information Sharing and Terrorism Risk Assessment.
A transcript of Harman's remarks on Meet the Press should be available later for the exact quote.
Incremental Reichstag Fire (IRF) Bump!
... but they call people who strap on bombs and blow themselves up in restaurants or military bases “activists.” Orwell would be proud. Doubleplusgood.
We were there on 7/4, 9/12 and the “health” protest”. Harmon, you dried up old hag, we’re not terrorists...you are. This is why you are not going to win anything, you misguided socialist creep. You congressional “terrorists” have to go. VOTE THEM OUT!
Terrorists? Did she not get the memo from Dear Leader to “tone it down”? Because she’s ramping it UP.
Ah you gotta luv the demogogue Dummies.
Call people Racists that are not.
Call people terrorists that are not.
And then they wonder why people laugh when they belch out their epithets.
The silent majority is just biding its time until November.
I wonder if Ms Harmon thinks Martin Luther King Jr. was a ‘terrorist’.
I saw that. She very quickly provided that link and nobody called her out on it. Not sure they picked up on it as it was done rather quickly.
Harman is a ridiculous, lying left-wing bitch.
Out you go in November, Janie!
I don’t know about that. She represents a big Dem. district and she has a whole lot of money. The only good thing I can say about her is she hates Nancy Pelosi.
And she would say Bill Ayers was just “misunderstood”...
Jane, you ignorant slut.
obama’s friend that helped him launch his political career, Bill Guilty as hell. Free as a bird” Ayers is a terrorist — not peaceful protesters.
Also, I read where these militia guys in Michigan could be sentenced to life. How in the hell is a man that actually committed terrorist acts “free as a bird?”
I don’t know enough about the Michigan situation to support them but I don’t see our fbi targeting muslim groups that regularly make threatening remarks. I don’t see these folks given the same “justice system” obama’s friend bill ayers received.
Terrorists want to destroy America and what She stands for. Harman is doing so with her policies, thus a member of the enemy within. She is providing material support against the Constitution and for destroying America. She fits the definition of a terrorist.
Terrorism and terrorists? Who needs al-qaeda when we have the democrats.
A little graphic, but you get the idea...
Just curious, but do you know if they can revoke any future permits obtained for Tea Party protests?
