Funny how liberals so conveniently forget how groups like ActUp, Code Pink, MoveOn, ANSWER, ACORN have encouraged activists to shout down (and sometimes pie) conservative speakers at colleges, and mobilize millions online to “push back” during political campaigns.
But when someone opposes them, it’s orchestrated, evil, and worth whining about. Just ask Bob Franken…
What do you call the partisan groups that whip up their fear-of-change ultra-conservative base to engage in that symbolic lynching and then disavow any responsibility? You have a choice here between “deniers” and a word that rhymes with it.
“Lynching”… a little race-baiting, but please go on, Bob.
GOP Chairman Michael Steele, for instance, insists, “We’re not inciting anyone.” But what about all the soulmate special-interest groups with close ties to the party? How about their allies, who issue insidious calls for disruption on their websites?
It’s obvious Bob Franken was out of the loop during the last election.
He really doesn’t want to go there.
Can someone point to any Republicans who have been harassed as they hold meetings on health care? Are there any who have been taunted the way Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius were? Or chased from a supermarket parking lot gathering when an angry crowd of 200 closed in, as was the case with Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Texas, or hung in effigy, like Rep. Frank Kratovil of Maryland?
No, Bob, I can’t point to any Republicans who’ve been harassed as they held meetings on health care… BUT there a lots of stories and videos out there on Republicans who were harassed by organized, mob-like liberals over topics such as abortion, illegal immigration, gay marriage and transgender “protection”, global warming-climate change, religion, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, any war with American involvement….
You have a choice here between “denier” and a word that rhymes with it.
