I make light of their fascist instincts, but this is what passes for "informed commentary" over at The New York Times. Curiously enough, the Times seems to be okay with this sort of invective since these comments have been up for more than a day.
And it's not just the rabid kooks who read the Times. Unfortunately, this kind of fascistic behavior is becoming all too commonplace for the increasingly radicalized Democrat Party.
For the first time in American history, mainstream Democrats are openly calling for the arrests of their political opponents.
Democrats called for the arrest of Sen. Ted Cruz "for sedition" in offering specific, focused appropriations bills to fund the government. Never mind the Constitution explicitly grants the power of the purse to Congress, not the President. Never mind that James Madison himself described that the House could, in fact, shut down any program it wanted to. Never mind all that: the Constitution doesn't matter to these hard left sixties retreads. They don't want any political opposition. They want you gone. They want you silent, or in prison, or dead (what do you think Obamacare is really about?).
• MSNBC plainly calls lawful dissent "sedition", presumably punishable by death.
• Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen (TN) labels conservatives "domestic enemies", alluding to presidential actions to secure the country from the Tea Party, veterans, and Constitutional conservatives.
• A public MoveOn.org petition calls for the arrests of Republicans in Congress by the Holder DOJ.
These are some dangerous times, my friends. I urge you to pray for the best but prepare for the worst.
