I just might be scooping Paul Krugman on this one. I’ve recently uncovered (thanks to the diligent of several hate-mongering right-wing bloggers) evidence of the latest violent reactions to the passage of Obamacare:
Supporters of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid . . . gathered just down the road from the launching point of the Tea Party Express tour, and when Breitbart happened upon them, he was met with threats of violence. At least one protester threw an egg at Brietbart, missing him. Eggs were also thrown at the Tea Party Express bus.
I’m sure this will lead the news on ABC. And given their interest in reporting violent reactions to legislative actions, other MSM oulets will highlight this juvenile behavior, with Barney Frank demanding that Democrats “differentiate themselves” from this type of response, Jim Hoft is skeptical:
As the mainstream media hyperventilate over what is now regularly being referred to as rightwing hate speak, liberal talk radio host Mike Malloy Friday actually called for conservative talkers Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Bill O’Reilly to commit suicide.
I’m sure Steny Hoyer will be calling a press conference any minute to denounce such rhetoric. Any minute now, Jim, really. Well, maybe he’ll wait until Monday, you know, because, well, he always does like to spend the weekend with his family. I’ve heard the DNC has a press release all ready for Tim Kaine’s approval just as soon as he gets back from his weekend jaunt to Nantucket where they don’t have wireless. Or fax machines.
