But these days all we hear about is how violent, scary and threatening the Tea Party folks are.
Three liberal groups will drop off a petition at the Republican National Committee’s headquarters Thursday, urging conservative leaders to “take responsibility” for threats and incidents of vandalism against Democrats.
The event is being organized by the Brave New Foundation, MoveOn.org, CREDO and Color of Change.
The groups say about 330,000 people have signed their petition, which urges Republicans to “apologize for your hate-spewing proxies in the Tea Party Patriots. It is not acceptable for you to build your party’s political fortunes by encouraging and defending bigotry and hatred among your supporters.”

Bigotry and hatred huh? Yawn…
We’ve seen these Saul Alinsky rules for radicals tricks many times from these George Soros funded groups. The old blame your opponents for the very actions your group is guilty of then express phony outrage and indignation while utilize the liberal lapdog media to get your message out to the largely ignorant masses.
Alinsky’s Rule #3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
Rule #4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”
Rule #8. “Keep the pressure on, with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.”
Rule #9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”
Rule #10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.”
Rule #11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside… every positive has its negative.”
And Rule #13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and ‘frozen.’ “…any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

Funny how “concerned” Democrats claim to be over Tea Party protesters and their potential for “violence” yet the only person arrested for threats against a politician since the passage (actually the ramming down our throats by the Democrats exclusively) of Obamacare happens to be a loony leftist who targeted a Republican!
I’ve heard several Democrat politicians claim they were the target of threats after they pushed through Obamacare but I have yet to hear of any arrests based on these claims. I wonder why that is? Could it be possible these Democrat politicians were lying about or exaggerating the extent of these so called threats for political benefit? On the other hand if their claims are true it would be quite believable that some on the far left are responsible for the threatening calls and letters after all a large faction of the left wing fringe wanted a full blown government takeover of this country’s healthcare system and they didn’t quite get it. Perhaps these are the people Democrat politicians are so afraid of confronting during their spring recess?
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) canceled a town hall on the new healthcare law Tuesday because of concerns about the security of the event.
The congressman’s office cited safety issues at the facility where the meeting was to take place and threats to his office, according to a report by News21.
“We just thought it best to cancel it for safety concerns. This was not meant to be a place where we’re going to talk partisan politics,” Pat Lowry, a member of Ryan’s staff, told News21. “Don’t get me wrong, Congressman Ryan will debate anyone, anytime.”
The cancelation comes a week after many lawmakers received threats because of their votes on the healthcare measure.
Democrats and Republicans spent the end of last week sparring over which party bore the blame for the attacks.
Some Democrats, such as DNC Chairman Tim Kaine, accused Republicans of stoking the anger of Tea Party protesters, who Democrats say threatened members of their party. Some Republicans, such as House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (Va.), blamed Democrats for using the attacks as a political weapon against them.
A number of demonstrators who both supported and opposed the healthcare overhaul showed up at the event, which was to be held at the Youngstown Community Health Center….

Stoking the “anger” of Tea Party protesters huh Mr. Kaine?
Speaking of mean and nasty protesters, let’s take a stroll down memory lane shall we?
The “progressives” want you to think they are the kind compassionate and tolerant people in this country but I think most of us know better!
Of course we all know how much Democrat politicians encourage and respect the right of Americans to speak their minds on the issues. Well as long as the speech coincides with their left wing agenda that is!
So the Democrats are all nervous about alleged mean and violent protesters huh?
Well we can always count on leftists to fill THAT bill as former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo discovered when he was invited to speak to speak at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill about illegal aliens being allowed to pay in state tuition rates while attending college. It doesn’t take long for the indoctrinated radicals to start creating a scene which quickly shuts down the conference. These are the tactics taught by the infamous community organizers and encouraged by the equally left wing academia in our universities. If you disagree with the message start yelling, cussing, throwing things and do whatever it takes to chase the speaker out of the room.
There you have it, yet another example of the ever so tolerant left always looking for diversity in thought and stimulating discussion. The funny thing is how the lamestream media, regardless of how much proof to the contrary, continues to perpetuate the absolute lie that it’s the “right wingers” who are full of hate and a threat to the safety and well being of those they politically oppose. See Rule #11 above…
