Hypocritical Left Can't Handle Dissent

Story here.

The Left doesn't like that the American People are using their Town Hall meetings to directly protest the Obama agenda and their Representatives' astonishingly brainless acquiescence thereto.

Does the outrage over conservatvies’ insufficient deference to their Democratic betters come from the same Left that cheered when a foreign “journalist” threw his shoes at the president of the United States in the middle of a war region? The same Left that assembled in crowds when beckoned by United for Peace and Justice, International ANSWER, and Not In Our Name (each led by avowed Marxists) and denounced the president as a genocidal murderer, or marched with placards reading, “Bush is the disease. Death is the cure”? The same Left that publicly spoke of assassinating the president on numerous occasions?

Where was the concern over decor when campus leftists shouted down Congressman Tom Tancredo – or when the rage that campus radicals had been long stoking finally boiled over into physical violence against David Horowitz, Ann Coulter, William Kristol, and Pat Buchanan?

Instead the man who wrote the “malaise” speech equated middle Americans — who carried signs reading “Capitalism Not Socialism” and objected to Arlen Specter making “judgments very fast” – to the Islamic fanatics who kidnapped Americans on his former boss’s watch. President Barack Obama refuses to be so disparaging of one of those fanatics, Mahmoud Ahmadinejiad, whom he would like to meet without preconditions for a nice, cozy tête-à-tête.

That might be instructive about which party’s views are most simpatico with those of Islamic fundamentalists.
