Tea Partiers = American Taliban

Hat tip to Say It Ain’t So Already

Tom Ross, Delaware GOP Chair, Threatened with “Bullet in the Head:

The chairman of the Delaware Republican Party received a death threat last week over his support for Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del) over Tea Party challenger Christine O’Donnell…

The threat, issued in the form of an email, told chairman Tom Ross that he deserves “a bullet in the head” for backing “political ass-kissing RINO’s”…

The Taliban assassinates people in Afghanistan if they don’t toe the party line.  Tea Partiers are heading down that road here.


Fascinating!

So that love affair the far right politicians have with the gun nuts may not be such a great thing after all… especially when they’re violent, unprincipled thugs. How’s that ‘freedom to bear arms’ workin for ya? Not so good it appears.

    It’s stunning and quite shocking to observe what’s going on with less than responsible dissent in the USA today. I look back and re-read the newspaper ad printed in the Dallas Morning News on November 22, 1963 “Wanted for Treason”). There was also a flyer being circulated in that city during that week, saying (ironic, not genuine) “Welcome, Mr. President.” He was welcomed, all right. And our nation has never been the same. Where did we get the notion that freedom means do whatever one wishes, anywhere, anytime? Are we a country, nation, race (larger connotation, not ethnicity)? Are we citizens of anything? Or is each of us a planet? Ignorance can be overlooked, but refusal to even acknowledge an external truth, like a rigid resistance to learning anything new, is just unforgiveable. Maybe the eighth century is our destination. That’s why I’ve been using the alliterative comparison to the Taliban (which means “the Way,” or “the Path”) for some time. The USA is not the only country so divided. Look at Japan. The gun nuts are virtually nonexistent there, but they can be just as dangerous. Here we continue to battle the frontier, because we are apparently always afraid. Of what, I am not always certain. But our insecurity sure helps somebody. Think that over.
