It should be patently apparent to you, by now, that much of the Republican Party is the modern-day Ku Klux Klan, only without the cool uniforms*.
Republicans and Conservatives
are advocating, winking at, dog-whistling their support of, are defending, or are participating in

ACTUAL PHYSICAL VIOLENCE
AS A MEANS TO A POLITICAL END
,
that political end being
NOTHING OTHER THAN INTIMIDATING THEIR CRITICS AND FELLOW AMERICANS
FROM DARING TO DISAGREE WITH THEM.
This is very important, so I want to say it as clearly as I can.
FUCK.
THAT.
SHIT.

It is really amusing to me that they don't seem to know what to make of this. Since the election of Obama, they've been saying that he is an atheist Kenyan Muslim socialist thug who wants to sell out America to terrorists, layabouts, and george Soros. They've painted the Democrats in Congress as anti-american socialists who want to destroy everything good about the country...

And then they don't know what to make of it when people lash out physically. Minority Whip: "Seriously, wtf? There shouldn't be any irresponsible acts done to these anti-american traitors who want to kill your babies." (paraphrased)

As I'm watching this play out on my favorite "slice of midwestern thought" message board, the reactions have ranged from "People hated Bush too," to "When you don't listen to people, they do crazy stuff," to "We can't be sure Democratic operatives aren't doing this to make republicans look bad," to "How do we know these aren't liberals who are mad they didn't get single-payer?"

Seriously! The 'pubs are reaping the whirlwind here, and deserve to have their feet held to the fire over this.
