Dems slam Bachmann over rhetoric, warn of extremism
Minn Post ^ | 4/14/10 | Derek Wallbanger

Posted on 04/14/2010 6:23:50 PM PDT by pissant

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."

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?

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!

Rep. Betty McCollum is all too quick to propose canceling free speech.

She definitely has a guilty conscience. And that jerking arm of hers ~ just like Dr. Strangelove eh!

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.

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.

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.

How about in the hopes of telling the truth?

Why stop there?

Michael Savage likes her as a presidential candidate. I most certainly like her more than Palin.

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!”
