Developing.No details yet. Drudge only has the headline.
This ugly attack on average Americans exercising their free speech rights may prove to be the Democratic Congress's Stalingrad. I guarantee you Pelosi would not have published this without Obama's approval. This contempt for political opposition and Americans uneasy about the Democrats's healthcare plans goes all the way to the Oval Office. Is this the kind of "bipartisanship" and "unity" Obama and the Democrats promised, attacking hard working Americans as being "un-American?" Is this the change we can believe in?
Democrats regularly attacked Bush and Republicans for intolerance to opposition when Bush was president. I sure never heard any leading Republican governing official call the president's opponents "un-American" or to publish an ugly broadside to that effect. The media would have gone crazy on any Republican who did. But I'm sure the media will ignore this and go back to obsessing about Rush comparing Obama's logo to a swastika. It seems now not a bad observation now that we're seeing the administration and the Democrats's fetid intolerance to political opposition beginning to come into bloom.

We are being taunted, but why?
Well, THIS ought to get everyone to settle down, huh?
That’s really the question, isn’t it? I really can’t believe that the Dems are that out of touch...or can I?
It really pisses me off when a couple of commies call me “un-American”.
Guys.... just keep giving them the rope and by all means.... stay out of their way.
This is only going to get DUmmer and FUnneier!
This is farcical.
“I sure never heard any leading Republican governing official call the president’s opponents “un-American” or to publish an ugly broadside to that effect.”
I don’t agree with this statement. Opponents to Iraq were called “unpatriotic” many times, which to me is equivalent.
Regardless, this battle isn’t going to be won by name-calling.
Well, that bull... Our side has citizens showing up - the Dem side is nothing but paid professionals. Guess the MSM and Maureen Dowd are too stupid to figure it out - OR they figured it out years ago and are to corrupt and biased to do a story on it. Here’s what a dem ad looks like:
....as opposed to ACORN, who are such upstanding citizens!???
Do you have a working link which goes to the article on Drudge?

President Obamas top priority for Congress is health care reform. Insurance companies are spending over a million dollars a day lobbying against the reform, while feeding myths and fears to America. It will take the same grassroots energy that got Obama elected to see the change we voted for. Our work isnt over.

These two goons are communist, pure and simple.
I am unaware of any leading Republican governing officials calling anyone "unpatriotic" over opposition to the Iraq War. If you have any quotes you could provide by Republican governing officials, I will stand corrected. I am aware of course that such rhetoric may have prevailed on talk radio, but that's not the same as a president or Congressional leaders making such comments.
What did Hitler do?
He stoked anger/resentment of Group A against Group B.
Then he swept in to co-opt that anger and “solve” the problem. By screwing Group B, which was identified as the PROBLEM.
Omoslem is playing the Nazi strategy, to the letter.
Hitler resented his Jewish roots, thus attacked Jews. Omoslem hates his white roots, thus attacks whites.
Ohole won’t be happy until poor blacks and commies are sitting around, and whites are paying everyone’s way.
When get gets control over “end of life decisions and funding,” you want to bet we’ll start seeing “affirmative action” there too? To “right the wrongs” of whites living longer than blacks?
Ohole is one sick puppy.
these are links to sites where dems offer people jobs to act like theyre real protesters. The dem side doesnt have any concerned citizens - just paid shills...
This seems completely insane...even for these two. But go ahead...I’ll not get in your way.
I’m convinced we’re being taunted, too. Here’s what they want—they want us “gun-crazy” yokels to show up a townhall meeting, mad-as-hell, and shoot their people up, then they can come down hard on us and ban guns for once and for all. Conservatives will be marked as terrorists and “enemies of America” and their reign will begin.
