Steyn is right on the money.
……For a long time, Tea Partiers were racists. Everybody knows that when you say “I’m becoming very concerned about unsustainable levels of federal spending”, that’s old Jim Crow code for “Let’s get up a lynching party and teach that uppity Negro a lesson.” Frank Rich of The New York Times attempted to diversify the Tea Party racism into homophobia by arguing that Obamacare opponents were uncomfortable with Barney Frank’s sexuality. I yield to no one in my discomfort with Barney Frank’s sexuality but, with the best will in the world, I find it hard to blame it for more than the first four or five trillion dollars of federal overspending. Eschewing such cheap slurs, Time’s Joe Klein said opposition to Obama was “seditious,” because nothing says sedition like citing the U.S. Constitution and quoting Thomas Jefferson. Unfortunately for Klein, thanks to “educator” William Ayers’ education reforms, nobody knows what “seditious” means anymore.
……I have enormous respect for the Democrats as masters of the politics of personal destruction. What a track record!
“Bushitler” … “General Betray-Us” … Excellent stuff, up there with Oscar Wilde. But this is, like, a whole new level: Bill Clinton is on the road, demonizing (and with an impressively straight face) half the American people as the express lane to ka-boom! And the poodle media are taking it seriously.
……Fifteen years ago, Bill Clinton set out to hang Timothy McVeigh around the necks of talk radio and, with a further stretch, Newt and the congressional Republicans. It was an act of contemptible but undeniably brilliant opportunism. It worked out so well for him, that a couple of years later, after the Princess of Wales’ fatal car crash, George Stephanopoulos enthused to Christopher Hitchens: “Tony Blair’s handling this really well. This is his Oklahoma City.” As Hitchens remarked, this is the way these people think.
Patriotic dissent against government encroachment in the Age of THE ONE, doesn’t go over very well with his Dem cohorts or his MSM toadies. As the mid-term elections get closer, the Left’s rants will get even more psycho. Keith Olbermann will showcase his “American Tea Party patriots are the “Worst Persons in the World” every other night. Joe Klein, Paul Krugman, Frank Rich, and Maureen Dowd will scream bloody murder. And Chris Matthews’ tingling leg will get a cramp.
The real fun will happen after the Dems lose the majority; as the left goes into total grand mal seizure. It will be very entertaining.

……The Obama/Clinton/media left are comfortable with the unrest in our society today. It allows them to blame and demonize their opponents (doctors, insurance companies, Wall Street, talk radio, Fox News) in order to portray their regime as the great healer of all our ills, thus expanding their power and control over our society.
