Barney, You’ve Got Some “Differentiating”* to do

Last Saturday, the Hill reported:

Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), called a “Homo Communist” on Saturday by protesters opposed to President Barack Obama’s health plan, says his GOP colleagues need to do more to “differentiate themselves” from the hateful speech spewed in the healthcare debate’s final hours.

Today, we learn that the FBI charged an Obama donor “with threatening to kill United States Congressman Eric Cantor and his family“.  Cantor is the House Republican Whip.

Bricks have recently been hurled through GOP offices in Michigan and Virginia.

Harry Reid supporters have threatened violence against Andrew Breitbart at a Tea Party Protest.

If, in the next 48 hours, given the demands Mr. Frank made the weekend of the health care vote about Republicans, if he does not (to borrow his expression) “differentiate” himself from those making such threats or committing such acts, we will assume this unhappy Massachusetts Democrat countenances them — and hold him to account.

Of course, should he choose to apologize for his past statement instead and say that he was wrong to say Republicans needed to “differentiate themselves” from the alleged actions of a few isolated protesters, then we will not hold him to account for the actual behavior of these angry leftists.

*Or apologizing



  1. You could’ve said that faster with “NO U”.

  2. “Any movement in which the intellectual leader is Michele Bachmann is obviously going to be problematic,” Frank said.

    Bachmann’s office did not comment for this story.

    OK, I laughed at that comment. I’ve stated elsewhere my absolute contempt for Ms. Bachmann, primarily due to a few proper clangers she’s dropped, including one “think about it” comment where I’m not sure she even knew where she was going with it.

  3. Bawney Fwank also needs to “differentiate himself” from the moonbat who infiltrated a tea party meeting in Princeton, Minnesota, and then struck a woman who is a 3-time cancer survivor while ranting that the tea party groups are just “anti-government trouble makers.”

    “This woman was a 3 time cancer survivor and came directly from her release from the hospital to this tea party event. The man ranted that the tea party group was just anti-government trouble makers. This frail woman put up her hand in defense and to signal ‘whoa, this is too intense.’ The man struck her defensively raised hand hard enough to cause extreme pain. The victim told the assailant, ‘You have the right to your opionion, but you do not have the right to hit me.’ At this point, other members of the group intervened. The man was shown the door.”
