This latest Dem hysteria over the scariness of tea partiers is just beneath contempt. Obviously nobody should do anything illegal, but, heck, you trample on people's basic rights in an area of intimate concern to them and put the financial survival of the nation at risk, and everybody is supposed to just lie down and be all polite about it? What a bunch of cry-babies. But dangerous crybabies. They're making omelettes like crazy, breaking eggs by the gross, and when one of them squeaks, "I'm a little chick, please don't hurt me!" it's all, the right wing terrorists are on the loose! Transparent, contemptible political theater and utter cluelessness about, you know, freedom. People, as in the People, have every right to be angry, furious, shocked, appalled and disgusted by what Congress and our ambitious young prince have done. And bringing the FBI into it? Oh, the FBI is watching! Everybody be careful that they not get too angry! Or else who knows who might come knocking at 3 in the morning! It sure looks like a disgraceful attempt to intimidate those of us who don't like what the Dems have wrought, who hate it in fact, into silence. Ironic, of course. Somebody yelled at me! Me! Call the FBI! And these are the people to whom we are handing over our own and our parents' and childrens' health care, and medical records, and our access to drugs and care. What a f*ing nightmare. The reaction of our masters to a little popular anger is a lot more chilling IMHO than a few rednecks gone wild, if even that has actually occurred, about which it seems there is considerable doubt.

Gee, where are all the usual call from the Left to 'understand the root causes' of violence, which they seem to muster within nano-seconds of ACTUAL violence committed by members of their politically-fashionable grievance groups?
Where are all the reminders that not all members of X are committed to violence?
We're dealing here with the ideological successors of those behind the Great Terror, Let A Thousand Flowers Bloom and the Reichstag Fire. We shouldn't be surprised.
