White House Contrasts Peter King Muslim Radicalization Hearings With Appeal to Tolerance

By: Monday March 7, 2011 6:15 am

This week, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) will hold long-awaited hearings in the House Homeland Security Committee on Muslim cooperation with law enforcement in terror investigations. King pretty much has his mind made up before entering the hearing room – he believes that Muslim-Americans haven’t aided enough in investigations against extremism, despite a long record to [...]

Right-Wing Wisconsin Senator Fishes for Trouble with Capitol Protesters

By: Wednesday March 2, 2011 7:40 am

Last weekend I mentioned Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman (R), who went on TV and said the protest movement in Wisconsin was nothing more than a bunch of kids “up for a demonstration.” One thing I didn’t mention there – I saw him later that day. I wouldn’t have recognized him without seeing him earlier [...]

I don’t think it’s even worth responding to the likes of the NRCC or Eric Cantor or Mike Pence about violence and hatred in the GOP base. They fanned these flames and have been doing so for some time. Right-wing violence and intimidation is nothing new in American life. The leaders of the conservative movement [...]

The Ugliness Continues – GOP Base Uses Coffins, Nooses as Imagery

By: Thursday March 25, 2010 6:58 am

The hatred and violent tendencies of the GOP base, unlikely to be stopped now that the American equivalent of Rwandan hate radio has whipped them into a frenzy, continued yesterday, with more and more disturbing activities. Members of the GOP base (which is the perfect way to describe the tea party “movement”) brought a coffin [...]

The Ugly Face of a Disturbed Movement

By: Saturday March 20, 2010 1:42 pm

Given some of the opposition around these parts to health care reform and the opposition among the tea party set, some would think that common ground could somehow be established along those lines. There is room for trans-partisan coalitions on individual issues, no question about it. But there’s no sugar-coating this: the crowds of people [...]
