The DNC is becoming dangerous

Statement from the DNC yesterday:

These mobs are bussed in by well funded, highly organized groups run by Republican operatives and funded by the special interests who are desperately trying to stop the agenda for change the President was elected to bring to Washington. Despite the headline grabbing nature of these angry mobs and their disruptions of events, they are not reflective of where the American people are on the issues – or the hundreds of thousands of thoughtful discussions taking place around kitchen tables, water coolers and in homes.

The right wing extremists’ use of things like devil horns on pictures of our elected officials, hanging members of Congress in effigy, breathlessly questioning the President's citizenship and the use of Nazi SS symbols and the like just shows how outside of the mainstream the Republican Party and their allies are. This type of anger and discord did not serve Republicans well in 2008 – and it is bound to backfire again.

This is what mob rule looks like.

Regarding claims that these were rent-a-mobs funded by Republican "operatives" and special interest? Prove it. As for claims that the views expressed by these folks are not reflective of American opinon regarding health care reform? Another lie.

Anger and discord? You've got to be fucking kidding me. The left, during the last 8 years, wrote the BOOK on political anger and discord.
