Skip to comments.Dems slam Bachmann over rhetoric, warn of extremism

WASHINGTON Democrats, including Rep. Betty McCollum, launched into an assault on incivility Tuesday, saying incendiary words from members of Congress were inflaming tensions that could provoke another incident of Oklahoma City-style domestic terrorism.
"When Members of Congress compare health-care legislation to government tyranny, socialism, or totalitarianism in the hopes of scoring political points it's like pouring gas on the fire of extremism," McCollum said.
McCollum's St. Paul office was one of a few that received an envelope containing gasoline-soaked tatters of an American flag and a letter that called her things not fit for print in this or any publication. Several police departments, including St. Paul and the Capitol Police, are investigating.
"The members of this House Democrats and Republicans have a duty and an obligation to end the dangerous name-calling that can only inspire the extremist militias and phony patriots," McCollum said. "In the most free, prosperous and greatest democracy on earth it is time to return to a civil, decent debate of public policy."

Yep - oppose a CommieCrate with logic and fact, and BAM - you are an EXTREMIST on DHS terrorist watch list!
This is to rich. The liberals have been fanning the flames for years. The Bush years were among the worst.
“”saying incendiary words from members of Congress were inflaming tensions that could provoke another incident of Oklahoma City-style domestic terrorism.””
They are all getting out in front now so when the “you know what” hits the fan, they will be able to say “told you so.” Not that any of their actions or rhetoric or lousy bills or their desire to destroy our country will be responsible for such acts - not at all - never! Don’t they know we all know what they are up to?
Exactly my thoughts.
King George’s boys and girls used to “warn of extremism” for all the good it did them. We still kicked their @$$. This is America! We’re a free people! Kickin’ @$$ is what we do!
She definitely has a guilty conscience. And that jerking arm of hers ~ just like Dr. Strangelove eh!
Ask Bobby Jindal’s aide about Republican extremism.
A molitov cocktail was thrown at the home of Jan Brewer’s chief spokesman the other day in Arizona as well.
Left wing desperation time.
Extremism? When extremism comes in the form of government action, now that’s extremism! It reminds me of the kid that was speeding down the freeway at 100 mph. When the cop catches up with him and pulls him over, he complains to the officer that extreme measures were used to be chased at 100 mph.
Oklahoma was a terrorists act
Now, now let’s show some civility. That’s “Please F.O....”
So telling the truth about Obamacare is now considered incendiary? You'd think that with the threats that some congresscritters have received they'd get a clue that the American people do NOT want Obamacare or BIG government. Even now, they still refuse to listen and see the truth. Disgusting.
Uh, shall we talk about the extremists on the Democratic side of the aisle? Bunch of socialist airheads. Not to mention the extremists in the White House.
I am so amazed at how misogynistic the Dems are. But why not? They can get away with it.
Bachmann is the left’s latest target. We cannot let them oust her from congress.
The Democrats’ time has come and is long gone. They’re trying to convince all of us that the socialist mistakes that all failed in the last century are really going to work this time. Because they’re Democrats and are wonderful people and believe in all kinds of good thing.
Isn’t this the cheapest political tactic of all? Accusing people who disagree with you of being violent extremists? This is not a police state. The Democrats can’t choose who “the public” is. We disagree with them, vehemently, and they’re stuck with it.
This cancerous communist scumbag Betty McCollum can drop dead.
What a foul p.o.s. she is.
“In the most free, prosperous and greatest democracy on earth it is time to return to a civil, decent debate of public policy.”
“Sleep, sleep, little sheep.”
LOL! and hypocriphal hilarity ensues ...
Okay, I predict a bombing and it will be by the LEFTIST COMMMIE RETARDS, guess who the MSN will blame?
Screw them. The left attacked and threatened Bush for 8 years. We’re only protesting; believe me, they haven’t even begun to see our nasty side.
I wish someone would ask this socialist loser what the Founders and Framers would think of what the government has done to the people.
How about in the hopes of telling the truth?
“We cannot let them oust her from congress.”
Why stop there?
Michael Savage likes her as a presidential candidate. I most certainly like her more than Palin.
At least the bee-atch admits there’s a fire.
They’re gearing up for speech controls.
“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice!”
Gasoline soaked shreds of an American flag? Only a leftist would do that, McCollom.
These are the same liberals and socialists who invented riots and civil unrest. The tea party event I was at last night was very civil. The funniest part was when this Ohio State Representative said “The Republicans are starting to get it.” A woman in the crowd down on the floor (paid for seats) shouted, “They better!”
Derek Wallbanger is the author’s real name?
Ya can tell they're bleedin poofters, cause they obviously haven't been around women enough to see the real B side when it comes out!!!
Democrats talking about extremism? Unless they’re unloading on obama, they have absolutely no room to talk. None.
Dissent was patriotic 24 months ago, f you Lib Commie Maggots.
