Lord Omlette pointed out an interesting observation –
When people cheered about Ron Paul advocating that people die for not having health insurance, and when people cheered about the massive executions under Rick Perry, the Democrats came down pretty hard on them. So when people celebrated the death of Osama bin Laden, were the Democrats equally bloodthirsty? Omlette wondered what would happen during the death of the next big Al-Q leader.
And now Al-Awlaki is dead. Literally blown apart in Yemen by a missile strike.
I watched the media and the Democrat reaction was pretty low-key. I think it’s safe to say that the Tea Party extremists are somewhat exclusively the bloodthirsty morons everyone is making them out to be.
Again, I want to stress that not all Tea Party people are nutjobs, but the people representing the Tea Party are. And as long as they are the face of the Tea Party, the Tea Party will continue to be considered as a group of nutjob, bloodthirsty facists who will wreck this country if their candidates win. They need to purge these whackados out of their party, honestly.
