As per my last post, seems the hatred coming from the left is so close to the mainstream that it oozes from the website of the leader of the Democratic Party. Now, someone blogging there is calling us “heirs of bin Laden” for opposing the President’s health care plan.
Jim Hoft links to a screed there, obviously by someone like Keith Olbermann, who took seriously this obviously sarcastic comment of a participant at a town hall for U.S. Representative Wally Herger in Redding, California:
I have been known to say things that are fishy. I’ve even been known to attend Redding Tea Party dot com protests. And I want to say that I’m a proud right wing terrorist. (applause) I didn’t come prepared with a lot of notes tonight; I left them, actually, at home while I was looking for my birth certificate.
Burt Stead, the guy who uttered those words, admitted that with he did so in order to “poke fun” at things Obama Obama Administration officials have said and done.
But a left-winger blogging on the President’s behalf, missed the humor, reading Republican reaction as
Republican Representatives, Senators, GOP Party Leader, GOP Political Machine top personnel (e.g., Gingritch), etc etc etc — they’re ALL every one of them applauding and encouraging their zealot-horde by merrily referring to them as “Proud Right-Wing Terrorists”. Google it – I’m not pulling your leg.
No, this guy’s not pulling our leg, but he is taking himself far too seriously. A clever Republican was having a bit of fun. And he and his counterparts on the left, so eager to demonize us, saw this “wing-nut” defining himself (with a straight face) exactly as they see us (with their faces reddening).
Please note that I changed the title to eliminate a confusing double negative.
