"Charter schools are like Hitler, tyrents trying to take what's not thiers!"

"It's shameful that 631 children who have done nothing wrong...have to be subjugated to bigoted language from those so committed to the status quo, that they will lie, intimidate and slander to try to get their way," said the charter school founder Eva Moskowitz.

Pot Smoking Anarchist Intends to Kill Missouri Governor, Mistakenly Stabs Someone Else, September 2010.

The reason you never saw this story in the national news is because the attacker was a leftist loon, whose stated favorite quote (paraphrased on Facebook) was:

"Our every action is a battle cry against imperialism, and a battle hymn for the people's unity against the great enemy of mankind: the United States of America. Wherever death may surprise us, let it be welcome, provided that this, our battle cry, may have reached some receptive ear and another hand may be extended to wield our weapons and other men be ready to intone the funeral dirge with the staccato singing of the machine-guns and new battle cries of war and victory."

If you win a Pulitzer Prize, that makes all your opinions correct, right?

"Mission accomplished, Sarah Palin."
- DailyKos founder Markos Moulitsas

So, is the following related?
"An aide close to Sarah Palin says death threats and security threats have increased to an unprecedented level since the shooting in Arizona, and the former Alaska governor’s team has been talking to security professionals.

Since the shooting in Tucson, Palin has taken much heat for her “crosshairs” map that targeted 20 congressional Democrats in the 2010 midterm election, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was the main target of Saturday’s attack."

Incivility During the Civil Rights Movement

Today on Martin Luther King Day, during a time when many are calling for more 'civility' in America, let us reflect back on who was actually "un-civil" during the Dr. King-led Civil Rights movement....

-Senator Robert Byrd, Democrat, West Virginia

Though some may not be aware of it, King was a Republican, and those who opposed the Civil Rights movement were predominantly Democrats.

"It was the Democrats who fought to keep blacks in slavery and passed the discriminatory Black Codes and Jim Crow laws. The Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan to lynch and terrorize blacks. The Democrats fought to prevent the passage of every civil rights law beginning with the civil rights laws of the 1860s, and continuing with the civil rights laws of the 1950s and 1960s.

During the civil rights era of the 1960s, Dr. King was fighting the Democrats who stood in the school house doors, turned skin-burning fire hoses on blacks and let loose vicious dogs....
Given the circumstances of that era, it is understandable why Dr. King was a Republican. It was the Republicans who fought to free blacks from slavery and amended the Constitution to grant blacks freedom (13th Amendment), citizenship (14th Amendment) and the right to vote (15th Amendment). Republicans passed the civil rights laws of the 1860s, including the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and the Reconstruction Act of 1867 that was designed to establish a new government system in the Democrat-controlled South, one that was fair to blacks. Republicans also started the NAACP..."

"Dedicated to all who want to punch Sarah Palin in the face. Or encourage a one-on-one with those polar bears she hates so much.  This is in no way a group promoting or condoning violence toward women or anyone, it is simply a repository for unremitting anger and frustration.

Yep...we don't condone violence, but we sure want to hit someone!

State Republican Party officials claim it's the latest in a series of desperate acts by Democrats.Homeowners are angry, but resolute in what they plan to do next.

"I just cannot believe that someone would take the liberty to do this," said homeowner Rob Schaeffer. "We're appalled that someone would choose to destroy our property because they don't believe in our political views. My signs are going right back in the yard. This is my property. We live here. We have rights."
