    The thing is, to actively denounce them. I notice a reluctance in some quarters of the right, to do that. Why won't the Tea Party folks denounce the racists and loons that attend their events?

    Even here, someone has posted they would like to see Pelosi returned to the "ecology". When folks from the conservative side of the spectrum won't denounce the loons, it leads us to believe they condone the behavior and thus are welcome in their ranks.
    I feel that a movement or party that accepts the support of an extremist group anad welcomes them to their rallies if that group is over the edge and or advocates violence or some extreme policy such a racism then they would be smart to distance themselfs from such whackjibs or denounce them. A failure to do so will paint that movement or party with the stench of the extremists.
    This happened to the anti-war movement in th sixties when Communists and Socialists joined in "support" of the anti-war movemnet and the anti-war movement did not disown them.

    I am so surprised by the whackjobs right here in this forum that I really can't put your accusations against the liberals into context. We just had a veritable parade of conservative whackjobs of the highest order, and you, all you see is the liberals making people guilty by association. Interesting, to say the very least.
    Well we all know that it's only dem 'libruls' who "pall around with terrorists".

    OMG really ? Is that why she looks to be 60 but just turned 70 ? There must be a law against that isn't there? Scary that we have that heppening right in our nation's capital.

It starts with no longer having to defend themselves from charges of racism so they could spend time talking about their message. That is larger issue to me, than not giving them press. I would not want to be associated with them in any way and would everything in my power to make them unwelcome. I'm uninterested in their message and don't take them seriously as long as they the whackos are allowed space at Tea Party events.

    This is the important stuff. We cant get lost in discrimination. We cant get lost in B.S. We cant get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If every left-wing loon getting arrested for an asinine political statement made DP, you'd be scrolling for minutes to see it all.
    Yeah, right. Sooooo many more left wing loons. A rightwing loon is unusual. Sure.

    Or "the left always does X". You see that about three or four times every single day on this forum.

    You can spew out just so many lies and out right hatred against a party, people, and the government before a bunch of idiots will commit a criminal act.

    This has gne beyond stupid name calling by stupid people and we now have the spawn commtting crimes.
    This is some of the finest political hackery I've every seen.
