More Weimar politics:

A tea-bag organizer tweets “If you have a license to carry … carry. If ACORN/SEIU attends these townhalls for purposes of disruption, stop being peaceful, and hurt them. Badly.” A caller warns the SEIU that “You all are gonna come up against the Second Amendment.”

A teabag organizer tweets about how to handle those who disagree:

“If you have a license to carry … carry. If ACORN/SEIU attends these townhalls for purposes of disruption, stop being peaceful, and hurt them. Badly.”

Meanwhile, SEIU gets a phone call threatening that “You all are gonna come up against the Second Amendment.”

So far, not a single conservative voice speaking out against this nonsense. Remember, these folks are being told that the bills before Congress are about infanticide and involuntary euthanasia. No wonder if some of them are moving toward deadly violence.
