McCarthyism? Jim Crow? Segregation? Japanese internment?
Child's play. ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis says the times people are living in now will "dwarf" all those stains on America's history. And she points to the Tea Party movement -- or "bowel movement," in her words -- as a harbinger of the persecution to come.
Let's see: the Obama adminstration attacks and smears political opponents and Leftists seek to revive the mis-named "Fairness Doctrine" in order to silence conservative talk tadio. Who are the McCarthyites?
Jim Crow? A young black lady was the most impressive speaker and drew the biggest applause at the Roanoke, Virginia Tea Party on April 15. Blacks are more than welcome at Tea Party, but when they do express conservative ideas they are called every manner of vile name by so-called black leaders. By the way, how many black hosts are on MSNBC or CNN? Conservatives care about ideas not race. Leftists define everyone by race, gender, religious or sexual preference categories. Who are the Jim Crowers and segregationists?
Japanese internment? Are you crazy? The separation of people into enclaves by characteristics is a Leftist impulse.
"They are coming. And they are coming after you," the embattled head of ACORN said during a talk last month to the Young Democratic Socialists, the youth branch of the Democratic Socialists, the U.S. branch of the Socialist International.
During the address, Lewis praised the group's members for calling themselves socialists, and warned that undefined forces are plotting their doom.
Batty Bertha was right on this one; at least to a point. We are after the socialists, whether young or old. Not to do physical harm, but Conservatives are through negotiating with socialist terrorists. The baseline should be absolute liberty, but feckless Republicans have allowed the country to slowly creep toward the tyranny of statism. No, we aren't physically coming after the socialists, but we will no longer bow and scrape in the arena of ideas.
