DCG, I immediately thought of you when I saw this little blurb posted over on Huffington Post.

The left sees a conspiracy of death from Tea-Partiers (sarc on)

A tea party gathering in Asotin County, Washington turned more than a bit ugly on Saturday when a featured speaker actually called for the hanging of Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash), the fourth ranking Democrat in the Senate and a vulnerable re-election candidate.

“How many of you have watched the movie Lonesome Dove?,” asked an unidentified female speaker from the podium. “What happened to Jake when he ran with the wrong crowd? What happened to Jake when he ran with the wrong crowd. He got hung. And that’s what I want to do with Patty Murray.”

The event, which about 500 people attended, was organized by Lewis and Clark Tea Party Patriots, a group that (somewhat appropriately) advocates “Freedom of speech” as a cherished principle.

That a sanctioned speaker called for a hanging of an elected official, however, seriously pushes the boundaries of First Amendment freedom. And it’s yet one more example of how the Tea Party movement is a double-edged sword for the mainstream political officials who seek to harness its energy.

Free speech for me but not for thee…the libs spent 8 years bashing Bush and even produced a movie about his murder. On the local news web site about this article, here’s the FIRST comment:

“They should hang Bush and Cheney first…then others !”

HYPOCRITES

And yep, I say I’d like to hang’em all (meaning get them out of office). Right now (8:00 PM west coast) the WA ST leg is debating (still) repealing a voter-approved mandate to require 2/3 majority to raise taxes. Our gov wants to raise $605MILLION in new taxes. THROW THE BUMS OUT!!

There are always a few bad apples that spoil the whole batch on the left as well as the right side of politics… But to assume every person that attends a tea party is a extremist is a joke in it’s self…
When the news agencies are in the corner for the left, what can anyone expect from them except to make the tea party look as bad as they can. They only show the nut cases and not the real tea partier. They pick the worst and label us all as such. That is one reason FOX is the highest rated news program around… Every left wing news organisation is in the toilet and failing fast… They each should have to put a disclaimer at the bottom of their screen, to inform their 5 viewers, that they are bias reporting.
However, if we did hang them all, we would be saving or creating just as many jobs as the stimulus did and at a much greater savings..

How many times did we see effigies of Bush hanged and burned, or how about Bush being in the crosshairs of a rifle scope among other veiled references to his murder. Screw these sanctimonious SOB’s, I’ll admit straight out that I have quite a long mental list of liberals I’d like to put some crosshairs on and if things keep going the way they are, I may be able to shorten that list soon.
