WaPo Compares Tea Party Language to Kent State Massacre

I'll bet you didn't know it was language similar to that used by the Tea Party that was the root cause of the Kent State massacre. The Washington Post is making that analogy.
That was the language of that time. And now it is the language of our time. It is the language of Glenn Beck, who fetishizes about liberals and calls Barack Obama a racist. It is the language of rage that fuels too much of the Tea Party and is the sum total of gubernatorial hopeful Carl Paladino’s campaign message in New York. It is all this talk about “taking back America” (from whom?) and this inchoate fury at immigrants and, of course, this raw anger at Muslims, stoked by politicians such as Newt Gingrich and Rick Lazio, the latter having lost the GOP primary to Paladino for, among other things, not being sufficiently angry. “I’m going to take them out,” Paladino vowed at a Tea Party rally in Ithaca, N.Y.

I guess the Washington post columnists were too busy fabricating writing this story to visit the mall during the left-wing 'One Nation' rally and see these hateful signs.

Most of the hate language in America is coming from the left.
