Ever More Confused

Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer’s Op-Ed in USA Today sure stirred up parts of the conservative blogosphere.

The Daily Beast‘s Reihan Salam was particularly confused in his rebuttal, mixing up references to the revolutionary war protests, the civil rights protests and even French strikers and protesters. The visuals of his paper, portraying the protesters he defends, just added more confusion:

Regardless if you share or not Pelosi and Hoyer’s opinion on health care reform, they do have a point when they say these people are not there because of health care.

    We are there because of health care. The racist accusations are just a smear campaign. Yes we loath Obama’s socialist agenda but hey many of us objected to Bush’s socialist moves toward the end of his administration. People can object without being racists. Such comments remind me of the second grade, “oh yay, well you’re ugly!”

      I and the Op-Ed were addressing those who come to shout down the town halls with no interest whatsoever in the real issues. Those who peddle around crap such as “death panels”, or believe there is a conspiracy to take “their country” away.
      That is why targeted Salam’s piece in particular because he makes an equivalent between the revolutionary protesters who were fighting against a totalitarian monarchy, and those who today want to shut down a democratic debate with intimidating tactics.

    HEY STUPID! YOU REALLY THINK BOMAMA WAS BORN IN THIS COUNTRY? THEN YOU ARE A FOOL.
    THE DAY OF RECKONING IS CLOSE AND WE THE PEOPLE WILL CHASE HIM AND YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE ENTERED.

    Keep in mind that the best way to clean a vermin infested house is to fumigate the entire structure. Dems are mostly responsible for recent fiscal atrocities, but “moderate” yellow dog republicans such as Specter (god rest his soon to be former position in the senate) and supposedly conservative Reps have rotted away the structure of Democracy like termites eating at a foundation. We need a complete house cleaning over the next 6 years.
    Start sending actual pink slips to these people via snail-mail or e-mail so that they can have in there hands “astro-slips”from all us fictitious un-American, radicals. Radicals who have their eyes on the freedom prize.
