Not That I Want to Beat a Dead Horse…
Watch some of these videos and witness why there is more than a hint of hypocrisy and delusion in the false charges now being leveled against the Tea Party and opponents of Obama.
In the first video, filmmaker Evan Maloney interviews leftists and Democrats protesting Bush in 2004. There are explicit references violent action, armed insurrection and a solid belief in conspiracy theories. These same people are now claiming the same rhetoric is dangerous and that protest incites violence, even though they have not been able to prove that any conservative has proposed armed revolution, as some leftists do in the video.
In the video (starting at 3:09) there are also those among the anti-Bushers who claim Bush was part of a coup that had its origins with the Kennedy assassination. As CPN pointed out in this post on the pentagon shooter Patrick Bedell, the idea of a “Texas coup” after JFK was killed, was a feature of Bedell’s political outlook as well. CPN pointed out that Bedell wrote in his blog:
This seizure of the United States government by an international criminal conspiracy is a long-established reality. The murder of the United States President in 1963, the associated murders and institutional subversion, and the manipulation of official inquiries and public opinion, was effected by individuals within organizational structures that play a central role in the United States government up to the present day. The coup regime founded with the murder of President John Kennedy utilizes a number of mechanisms to perpetuate its criminal rule.
In the second video, Andrew Breitbart mingles with labor union protesters at the Searchlight, Nevada Tea Party rally over the weekend. He becomes the recipient of not-so-veiled threats of physical assault. He also witnesses the egging of the Tea Party Express bus. Later, these same left-wing minions falsely accused Breitbart of throwing the eggs.
