As Democrats, after a Sunday rally on the Capitol grounds, marched to the House hand-in-hand to vote for health-care reform, tea partiers reportedly shouted the “N-word” at John Lewis and another black congressman. A third was allegedly spat upon. And Barney Frank was called a nasty name.

Tea partiers deny it all. And neither audio nor video of this alleged incident has been produced, though TV cameras and voice recorders were everywhere on the Hill.

Other Democrats say their offices were vandalized and they’ve been threatened. A few received, and eagerly played for cable TV, obscene phone calls they got.

If true, this is crude and inexcusable behavior. And any threat should be investigated. But Democrats are also exploiting these real, imaginary or hoked-up slurs to portray themselves as political martyrs and to smear opponents as racists and bigots.

This is the politics of desperation. Majority Whip James Clyburn accuses Republicans of “aiding and abetting … terrorism.” New York Times columnist Frank Rich compared the tea-party treatment of Democrats to Nazi treatment of the Jews during Kristallnacht:

“How curious that a mob fond of likening President Obama to Hitler knows so little about history that it doesn’t recognize its own small-scale mimicry of Kristallnacht.”

Kristallnacht, “Crystal Night,” the “Night of Broken Glass,” was the worst pogrom in Germany since the Middle Ages. Synagogues were torched and hundreds of businesses smashed. Shattered glass covered the streets. Women were assaulted and men beaten and murdered. After that terrible night, half the Jews remaining in Germany fled.

To compare a brick tossed through the window of a congressional office and two shouted slurs to Kristallnacht suggests a growing paranoia on the left about the populist right.

Not since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 made “some Americans run off the rails,” said Rich, have we seen anything like this.

Was Rich awake in 1964? Because it wasn’t the right that went off the rails. The really big riot in 1964 was in Harlem, lasting five days, with 500 injured and as many arrested. The Watts riot in 1965, Detroit and Newark in 1967, Washington, D.C., and 100 other cities in 1968, all bringing troops into American cities, were not the work of George Wallace populists or Barry Goldwater conservatives. They were the work of folks who went “all the way with LBJ.”

Nor was it Young Americans for Freedom that burned ROTC buildings, vandalized professors’ offices, toted the guns at Cornell or took over Columbia in 1968. And it was not the Birchers who set off that 1970 explosion in the Greenwich Village townhouse that killed three radicals and aborted the terrorist bombing of the NCO club at Fort Dix.

No, this was not the New Right. This was the New Left, and it was Obama not John Boehner who used to “pal around” with one of the boys who did the Pentagon and Capitol Hill bombings.

As for calling Barney Frank a naughty name, that is not nice. But one wonders what Rich thought of the students marching under Viet Cong flags chanting, about the man who signed that Civil Rights Act, “Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?” and, “Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh, the NLF is going to win,” when American boys were dying in the hundreds every week fighting the communist NLF?

The 1967 attack on the Pentagon, where thousands tried to break through military police to get into the building, was the work of left-wing radicals. Did the tea-party folks who chanted, “Kill the bill,” outside the House behave worse than that?

Some of us recall the anarchy of May Day 1971, when 15,000 leftists tried to shut down Washington on a Monday morning by rolling logs onto Canal Road, smashing car windows, blocking traffic circles and wilding in Georgetown. Most wound up behind a chain-link fence at the Armory.

How many were arrested on Capitol Hill Sunday a week ago?

Not one tea partier, man or woman.

The “mass hysteria” of the tea-party right, writes Rich, is at root about race. “By 2012 … non-Hispanic white births will be in the minority. The tea party is virtually all white. … Their anxieties about a rapidly changing America are well-grounded.”

Rich is implying that when America’s white majority disappears, in 2042 according to 2008 Census Bureau projections, the day of the white conservative is over.

Given the rise in ethnic consciousness among all Americans, Rich may be right. But it is not just white folks who want illegal aliens deported and legal immigration curtailed, while 25 million of our own are out of work or underemployed.

A Zogby poll for the Center for Immigration Studies found that 56 percent of Hispanics, 57 percent of Asian-Americans and 68 percent of African-Americans think legal immigration is too high.

If the tea-party folks think it is leftist elites who detest and wish to be rid of the America they grew up in and love, they are right.

Thank you Pat, and thank you all for reading this blog.

Barney Frank: A study in weaselology

leave a comment »

The pure, unadulterated sfacime.

Barney Frank likes to change the rules to suit him. Now that the power may be slipping from the democrats, he wants to change the rules so the democrats can keep the power. This guy is as phony as a $3 bill. He’s also the same person that refused to pass regulation to reign in fannie and freddie:

My only question is, does this guy have teeth? I think he’s needs to spend some time away from the habitrail.

Thank you for reading this blog.

The Financial Mess: Whose Fault is it?

leave a comment »

It’s interesting that the same scumbags, like Barney Frank, who is one literally, denounced efforts to prevent the problems and they now blame the Bush administration. Too many democrats were benefiting from Fannie and Freddie to stop the insanity. Here it right from their own mouths. They can’t hide from their own words. Now were are left paying for their mistakes. 
Thank you for reading this blog.

Mika Brzezinski Mugged: Is There Hope?

with one comment

Update: Mika was on the Joe Scarborough radio show and she says she has compassion for the criminal. One, obviously she is not and will not be a conservative. Two, she’s stupid, and obviously likes being a victim. Someday she may not be so lucky, and with that attitude it is no wonder she got mugged. She must have “Easy Mark” written all over her. 
—————————————————————————————————————–
They say a conservative is a liberal that has been mugged. So will Mika be a convert? Mika was mugged in Washington DC on Thursday morning while waiting for a car. My normal advice would be to arm oneself, but it happened in the People’s Republic of Washington DC, so getting a carry license even after Heller would probably be futile. Even so, the guy did not appear to be armed, but just demanded $20 or else, and he was satisfied with $6. It’s Ironic that it was DC, as what’s the difference between the mugger and a politician? May be it was Barney Frank looking for some spare change for a new habitrail.

Is Taxing People Legitimate Theft, Necessary Evil, or Patriotic Duty?

leave a comment »

The Honorable Barney Frank believes that shortfalls in government coffers require taking money from people in the manner of taxation. Of course he couches this in that he suggests taxing the rich, as they have the money, but what if the government is at great deficit and he suggests lowering the bar? My question is, it would seem that politicians see taxation as a legal way to part money from people to fund programs that they use as pork to get elected. In a sense, we are paying for a system that keeps them employed. I would ask any reader that is willing to respond, what is the difference between this, the Mafia or a common thief? It could be construed that there is very little difference between government and the Mafia except that one has “legitimate authority”. Or is it that a government fullfills some higher moral purpose and it is justified to take money which is not earned? If the latter is the case, then how can feeding and perpetuating a system designed to keep politicians employed be a higher moral calling?
